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.

Inspired by Terry Pratchett's Hogfather, I've created a Sims version of the painting that every child has painted at some point. It features a little house with four windows and curly chimney smoke, a tree that looks like a lollipop with apple spots, and a sun in a sky that is only above, not to the sides. You can hang it on your sim children's walls and admire it.

It is a recolor of "The Monster Under My Bed" (an appropriate painting to recolor considering the book).

Style: Childrens
Room: Nursery
Maxis Flags: Not Applicable

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.
