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.
Servos are really useful caretakers in my households, and in The Sims 2 I loved tying them to the family with Queen of France's excellent and adorable Little Hal The Servo plushie. Thanks to her very generous terms, I was able to convert this cuddly so-and-so to TS3.

There are two objects: one that functions as a teddy bear, like her TS2 original, and one that is just a decorative object. You can have both in your game at the same time, and both have three recolourable channels.

The teddy bear version is fully animated and should look good when kids play with it, but because of the nature of the mesh the harsher play of toddlers can make it look a little distorted at times. The deco version is the same mesh, just pre-posed for adorableness. It's classified as a small object so it can fit on shelves and make your kids rooms look a little more lived in.

They can both be found under Kids / Toys for 50 simoleons each. Huge thanks again to Queen of France for all the hard work she did on this mesh and textures, all I did was reassign bones and edit the textures to be recolourable, all credit goes to her.

Polygon Counts:
LOD0: 944 vertices
LOD1: 592 vertices

Additional Credits:
Queen of France for the mesh and textures

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.

The cuteness comes entirely from Queen of France
