This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
************* MAJOR UPDATE - 4th March*******************

Please re-download. The files has the SAME name as the original release so it will simply overwrite you old file....

ADDED: New interaction for adults: now they can "Join" the toddler when he looks at himself in the mirror.

ADDED: The Toddler Mirror can now be "stepped over", like other small objects placed on the ground.

FIXED: The colour changing to pink at the end of the "Change Appearance" interaction.

FIXED: The interactions can now be correctly canceled.

FIXED: The message displayed when the Body skill point is gained doesn't mention any more the "Charisma" skill.

FIXED: The Catalogue Description now correctly displays the "+Body" tag (instead of "+Creativity").

(Also tested with perfectly!)


boblishman & Numenor presents:

The 'Gussie' Toddler Mirror

Once again, Numenor and myself have teamed up to create a 'brand new' object.

This time it's a 'toddler friendly' mirror, made from a soft outer non- allergic man made material and an unbreakable (polished non-toxic metal coated) plastic mirror - for maximum protection for your little ones....

As usual, I just made the mesh and textures and Numenor did all the 'magic' in making it a 'usable' object for Toddlers. The mirror has a fully working reflection surface, and can only be placed on the ground (not surfaces) - because the toddler need to crawl to it in order to use it.

There are TWO pie menu options:

1) "Look who's in the mirror!" - This allows your Toddlers to 'play' with the mirror... This included several animations, but, more importantly, playing with the mirror will slowly increase their 'body skill - because your toddler is learning to take care their face (:confused ... and you will receive a custom message once the toddler has gained a body point!

2) "Change appearence" - This works the same as the 'change appearence' for other Sims, and will allow you to change hair, makeup, accessories etc.

Whichever option you choose, your toddler will crawl close to the mirror...then change to the sitting position...and then 'scoot' up close to the mirror with their legs either side of it. Likewise, when the interaction is finished...your toddler will 'scoot' and crawl away from the mirror.

This new Toddler Mirror is only usable by Toddlers (other Sims will just get a 'There are no actions available' message)

Made with Milkshape SimPE v0.54 it has it's own unique (registered) GUID, is fully recolourable and is compatable with ALL games ( works with or without exapansion pack(s).

Polygon count = 624 (= good )

The single package contain two recolours....'Baby Blue'...and 'Pretty in Pink'. Deleting either of these colours will result in deleting the whole package and consequently the mirror itself.

You can change the colour at purchase time or using the design tool.

Price: 40 simoleons.

It can be found in the catalogue in Decorative/ Mirrors (for both Residential and Commercial).

The real thanks go to Numenor for making this such a wonderful object to please take time to thank him for those things (I just made the mesh/textures.

This has been tested extensively using the base (original) game, but will also work with any additional expansion packs. Please report any issues you may find in this thread, which will be checked by

myself and Numenor regularly.

Have fun with your toddlers....

Bob & Numenor

(Thanks and stars always encourage us to make more... and we'll share them of course! )

Thanks, it looks so cute I didn't like letting my toddlers use the tall hacked mirror to change their appearance because it looked a little silly, this is just perfect!

Great, another new toy for the toddlers to learn from. When I first saw this I thought it might have the usual charisma skills, but I'm really pleased that you've opted for the body points instead. And at 40 simoleans, what a bargain!

One question, I'm presuming that you have to have mirror reflections set to On in the game for this mirror to show the toddlers reflections?

Thanks to you both for adding such a great object

Please note - I'm not taking any requests at the moment.

You may include my items in your uploads but please credit with a link to either the object or my creator page please.

Yeah! This is really nifty. I remember you saying somewhere that you would have an object to change a toddlers appearance soon, and now we have it! Great job!

Nah, because then we would have to wait far too long for their excellent objects, and they'd be packaged in a buggy expansion pack.
You guys are really excellent. Bob, your objects and accessories are just brilliant, and Numenor... Where to even begin? You are practically a living legend in the Sims community. Either one of you could have easily made a pay site and people would flock to it, but instead you both graciously give away your creations for free. For that you have my, and undoubtedly most of the simmers around, immense gratitude.
