This download is a custom pose or animation. This means that you will need the Pose Player or Animation Player mod by cmomoney installed in order to use the download in your game.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
*Compatible with the "Pose List" feature of the newest Pose Player!*

This is a set I wanted to make a while ago, but couldn't quite work things out with Blender, sigh We're still not on the best of terms, but at least we cooperated long enough for me to get this idea produced in time for Father's Day I made this set specifically with guys in mind, because so many toddler sets seem to focus on moms. Dads love their kids, too! It's called "Little Man" because little Aidan was my model, but of course you can use it on a female toddler, no problem. Do be aware that some of the toddler poses are likely to warp a dress or a longer skirt.

Pose tags are as follows:

a_splad_littleman01 -- comforting.
p_splad_littleman01 -- crying.

a_splad_littleman02 -- holding baby upside down.
p_splad_littleman02 -- being held.

a_splad_littleman03 -- flexing arms.
p_splad_littleman03 -- flexing arms.

a_splad_littleman04 -- being hugged.
p_splad_littleman04 -- hugging adult's neck.

a_splad_littleman05 -- sleeping. (This pose can be used without a toddler.)
p_splad_littleman05 -- sleeping.

a_splad_littleman06 -- playing video games. (Controller accessory is by deggdegg and is available here.)
p_splad_littleman06 -- playing video games.

a_splad_littleman07 -- holding baby.
p_splad_littleman07 -- being held.

a_splad_littleman08 -- standing with hands in pockets.
p_splad_littleman08 -- peeking between adult's legs.

Known issues:
*These poses were designed using a male rig and were not tested with female sims. You can use a female sim, of course, but you may get some undesirable clipping in spots.

And as always, you'll need to use "moveobjects on" to place the sims. When you cancel their posing, they'll lump up together, so make sure to pull the toddler from underneath the couch for poses 5 and 6!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

I don't use poses, but I have to say this is just so sweet! I like how you catch the point of real kids' behavior. In Daddy's Babysitting you did too.

Those expressions, especially on the toddler's little face, are so sweet!

Good to see dad's get some love, too! They're often unappreciated, even in the Sims Community, so this is great to see! Instant download for me. Absolutely adorable!

Thank you, this is a great pose pack. I have aquesiton, please. You mention in the description tab that you can use either Pose Player or Animator Player. I have little experience with poses but want to try them in my pics, so please, do I need to have BOTH players? or will your pack work with EITHER Pose Player OR Animation Player?
Thank you for responding, if you have some time.

You only need the Pose Player to use custom poses

Just returned from a mini vacation from my sims and i'm blown away by this super adorable yet simple pose set! I remember before I took my break, I felt frustrated because I could get that just right daddy/son moment with my sims. ^-^ glad to see someone might have been reading my mind lol. Thank you soo much for sharing!
