Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
July 29, 2007 Updated to place tricycle on floor. Thanks to phaenoh for reporting this imperfection. I had to change the routes when routes are changed you have to delete item in your household then rebuy it. New routes are not recognized until you do so.

I have another items for your toddlers today. The toddlers and infants are one of my favorite parts of the game.

I hate that toddlers aren't able to learn any more skills so I created this to give them Mechanical skills and Fun.

Parents have to place the toddler on the tricycle and take them off. Toddlers will throw a tantrum if their needs get to low.

The main mesh is red and I've created a pink recolor.

This one took me quite a long time to get just right and I'm not 100% happy with the handle bars. I sure hope some of you enjoy it.

Face count is 2615.

I'm reasonably sure this is non EP compatiable. Please let me know if you find that it's not.

Enjoy!

All of your stuff is really great I also think that the toddlers should have more to do. I actually left a post on the sims 2 site, in the suggestion box. Thanks for all your hard work, I look forward to your next post!

Yeah! Once this is uploaded my toddlers will have five skills to learn. (We have a mirror which gives body.) That leaves cooking and cleaning. Makes me think of toddlers with minture brooms or vacumes.
Anyway this is great. You made an amazing item here and I look foward to using it.

Nifty! I assume it is stationary and there's no "pedaling" animation? Still very cool.

It is stationary unfortunately I have no way to make it rideable. It just give you another item for your toddlers to gain a new skill and it's will max their fun need.

I have toys in game, that teach all the skills to the toddlers. The 2 for cooking and cleaning, are a little plastic play sink, and the cooking one is a pan with a cooking spoon that they bang on just like a baby would do in real life. If I'm not mistaken I got them both at MTS2.. I would have to look but I'm 99% positive they were. I believe also in the same post/upload. If you do a search for them on here, you would probaly find 'em. Tried to see if I perhaps had a photo of them I snapshotted in game, found this one, if you look under the dog you'll see the play sink, and the little girl behind them is banging on the pot.



anyways back to this object and creator! I love all your objects you've been making, they are some of the things I have always wanted in my game for the toddlers and babies. Thanks so much for taking the time to create them.

Your toddler tricycle is so great with pink recolor.

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.

excellent - will make a change from the tricycle shaped potty

not sure whether toddlers could really learn cooking or mechanical to a useful level
what is missing is a way for children to learn charisma

It exists already - that's what the pink rabbit head does

This just gets better: increase mechanical and now there's another to boost cooking? Awesome! If this little lot doesn't keep them busy I don't know what will ^_^

Please don't PM/IM me with requests

In game I noticed that it floats a couple of inches off the floor, does this do it in your game as well? Most noticeable on the ground with shadows on high.

Thanks for bring this to my attention. It does do this in my game as well. I will try to get it fix asap.

I really appreciate your telling me. I want to know about imperfections, as
my eyesight is not very poor and it's sometimes hard for me to see things.

Would it be possible to clone one of feeEssen's ridable objects and then apply this mesh to it? I just opened both of the packages in SimPE and its WAY over my head. Maybe you would be able to make heads or tails of it. It would be sweet if this became ridable.

I actually have my own rideable items. You can find them both here: I have been afraid to post them here as I got so much flack from another creator that accused me of copying someone elses work. Although mine is coded much differently, if this creator actually knew very much about coding she would have been able to see this.
I also have not been able to figure out why the recolor changes back to the original after it's use.

You can find my rideable quad and wheelie here
