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! )

I have had this in my game for a long time, but don't think I've ever said anything. Since I am redownloading stuff after changing computers, I am trying to make sure to thank the people who make the hacks and items I love much. That said, my little toddlers adore this item and since toddler is about my favorite stage in sims, that's important. Thank you so very much.

Thank you SOOOO much. I always hated the way some of my Sims' toddlers looked. Except for the boys (lucky them they have good hair...and faces). So I looked all over but nothing came up for change toddler's appearance that actually worked for me. So...I look here thinking it would help. BUT SERIOUSLY EA?! You couldn't have implemented it in Sims 2 but you can for mirrors AND dressers?! *sigh*

I love that the toddlers can change their own appearance. Toddlers (both sim and real life) don't have a lot of freedom, so this is really nice. Thank you!
