This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

This is something I started quite some time ago, finally got around to finishing it. The 'Base Game' Magical Mystery's Shape, Rattle & Roll, Pasteur's HomoGenius Smart Milk, Rip Co.

Love it! Now my Sims can have coordinating potties... instead of that silly red one in every toddler's room!
Doing all the things, and *mostly* not failing.

I've never really been a fan of LACKing everything, but it makes SO MUCH SENSE as nursery items, I must have them now. Thank you for making me a believer!

P.S. Do you know where I can find LACK nursery bedding?

@ Phaenoh, on it's way, I need another few hours to finish the highchair and take screenshots, then I'll have the matching bedding, crib, change table and highchair uploaded.

Whenever you see a "Say Thanks" button show the creator you appreciate their on it.

I have to admit, when I first saw this my mind went "Uh... okay. That's.... ugly. Why?". But then I figured, well, I can at least grab the white ones (I have an addiction problem to white recolors xD) and downloaded it anyway.

Now I looked at it in game, and I fell in love with all of them. What a great idea! It really fits the items. I am particularly fond of the xylophone and the logic toy. I love that I can now have more variety with my toddlers, with colors that suit them. So, thank you for once again making something I didn't realize I wanted, and sharing it with us You're awesome!

Wonderful to have it all coordinated in these bright colors. There are many walls and floors that will go well too.
