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.
These are small versions of the huge children’s toys (Bear, Uni, Drago and Dino) turned into decorative objects, and a small override for the decorative Giraffe toy. Also included is a placement edit for the Lunchbox so that it can be put on shelves.

Update 2015-04-25: Updated to remove an unrelated file from the zip (a harmless one, see comments); the actual upload files are not changed.
Update 2015-04-03: Added the bunny reward toy from the recent patch (as a regular deco item, rewardness removed)
Update 2015-03-30: Fixed the wrong rig in the giraffe, if you’re using that please redownload. Thanks SlyStarDust!

Size comparison:



The .zip contains separate packages for each object. The lunchbox is a COBJ override with an edited placement flag, the four five formerly-huge toys are separate catalogue objects from the original ones (those are still available in Toys, unchanged). The giraffe is an override of the original object ‒ since one can still make it larger with the enlargement cheat (next to 9/0, not sure what keys those are on English keyboards) there isn’t really any point in having two of them. It also goes on shelves now.

All of these can be found in Room > Children > Kid’s Decoration and Function > Children > Decoration (not Toys!); the four formerly-huge toys cost 50§, the bunnies 65§ and the giraffe is changed to 85§. They are all sellable in GTW.

Yay! I hated how huge all the stuffed animals were. I miss all the cute decorative toys (dolls, etc) that I had for TS2 & 3 that were normal sized. I don't understand why all the toys are so massive in this game. Are you planning on shrinking down the bunny that came with the latest update as well?

ZOMFG I forgot the bunny! Yeah I wanted to do that >.< .. probably won’t happen today, but I’ll add that here and tag you when it’s uploaded. Thanks for the reminder =).

(The decorative dino I won’t add, because I don’t really like it that much .. so if anyone else is interested in that, just go ahead and DIY)

When I have pbox_deco-toy-giraffe_small-override installed it causes the coat rack, the pile of sports equipment, and a few other things to also shrink down.

I adore the toys, but something might be a little wrong with the override. Although, with the resize cheat I can make them the same size, but the smaller versions still have the larger footprint and shadows.

I also noticed that earlier -- thanks for letting me know the giraffe is to blame! I probably didn't notice it doesn't have its own rig (or I put in the wrong one), will fix it.

ETA: Okay, fixed and reuploaded.

@ShortyBoo (and everyone else) I've added the bunnies now. Thanks for reminding me! =) Recolours for that are also upcoming, probably sometime this weekend.

These are so cute, thanks a lot! <3 Finally I managed to get them, on the 3rd time. First two times I didn't include the lunchbox because I didn't need it, so I'm guessing that was the problem? Not sure though. Or I didn't look from the right place (kids decoration)... But I did look through all decorations so they should've been there...? Anyway, now I have them in my game and that's the main thing.

These are in Kid's decorations, like it says in the OP. Not in the generic Decorations department.

Ok, thanks! I didn't realize Kid's decorations is separate from other decorations.

When I have these in my game random decor items become ultra small, like the grandfather clock and several of the new items from Get to Work. Is anyone else having this issue with these items?

You need to redownload. I had the wrong rig in the giraffe at first, but this was fixed a while ago. See first post.

Thank you so much for these, love them! I was wondering if you could give them a smaller footprint though, so they can be placed on shelves and with other objects more easily, please, please? :P

hello, I am currently installing a bunch of your mods. There is a package file in this one pbox_window-octopane_GP01-tagfixes.package, dated 1st of April.
I installed your Octopane Privacy Window + Tag Fixes, dated 2nd of April, a bit earlier.
I am assuming this stray package file (stray cause it was not contained in the folder with the rest of toy ones) was added in error.
Since I can't find any info decided to post to you about it. Thank you so much for all the work you are doing to make Sims 4 so much better. Currently I have about 150 mods installed and most of them are yours... hehe...

Oh, thanks for the heads-up! That was a blind passenger I have removed now -- it was harmless though, all it does is give the Maxis "Octopane" window proper colour tags for some variants. It actually belongs to this upload: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=552024 and accidentially sneaked into the zip for this one too.

Hello. Sorry if this is a stupid question; I am new to CC downloads. I downloaded your file and then ran the TS4 Package Conflict Detector. I am getting a resource conflict saying all the toys use the same rig. Does this mean I can only have one of these toys in my game at one time? Thanks!

Thanks so much for this! There are way too many large objects in this game. The stuffed animals were cute, but it's nice to have this smaller option.
