This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Just in time for winter to come, I have completed a sleigh for your toddlers. Now at least the smaller sims can enjoy a sleighride.

16.4.14: Fixed a hole in the mesh. Embarrassing, but true.

26.11.13: And it's already time for the first update: The rounding of the runners needed a bit of smoothing, and I have at least attempted to improve on the lighting-and-shaddow imperfections, pointed out in my upload-rating. You can see (or try to find ) these minor changes in the new picture I attached (the one with the greenish floor).

Of course this sleigh works just as well in summer and without snow, but you wouldn't have the atmosphere. Therefore, please take care to put it away for the summer, or your Sims will keep using it.

You need "Generations" for this item to work, as it is cloned from the stroller. It has exactly the same functionality, including the glitches with toddlers standing in the seat, and parents doing weird things with their arms. That's not my fault.
I also can't help the fact, that you don't see the runners in deep snow.

Babies can have a sleighride as well, but please note, that the divider I put to the seat, cuts through the blanket of the wrapped baby. I'm using QuizicalGin's unwrapped baby most of the time.

This object has three recolorable channels. It costs 100§ and is found in buymode under:
Kids/Kids Misc
Vehicles/Vehicles Misc

The baby-clothing used on the screenshots is by sinful_aussie at TSR and QuizicalGin (also the baby-hair)

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.

Thank you for this, it looks great!

I also can't help the fact, that you don't see the runners in deep snow.
This is just normal physics, the runners sink in the deeper snow because they are slender and the snow is soft !
