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.
5/31/05 - I've uploaded a new version of the Toybox with the uvmapping cleaned up. It should now be mapped so that pictures can be put on all sides cleanly. Both this and the original version use the same guid, so you only can have one or the other in game. Download SS_Sleigh_Toy_Box_Mesh_UVMapFixed.zip to get the updated version.

Original Post:
Here is a new mesh for a toddler bed, "sleigh" style. This object is cloned from the Kinder Kontainer crib, and it should have all the animations of the original crib. I modified the behaviours to only allow toddlers, hopefully I did it right. The object is Colour enabled and EP ready. The frame is recolourable. The bedding is linked to the original crib bedding materials. I've included one frame recolour, and the Bob the Builder bedding shown in the picture.


Updated 3/23/05
I've made some small tweaks to the toddler bed. I also modified the Bob the builder bedding so it can be used on a crib. Parts of it do appear flipped, unfortunately that is a limitation of the way Maxis mapped the object. I've combined the bed, bed recolour and bedding recolour into on zip file.

Added 3/23/05
By popular request here is the matching Sleigh style changing table. I separated out the frame from the pad/accessories, so they can now be recoloured separately! Included in the zip file is the changing table, a cherry wood frame recolour and a bob the builder pad/accessories recolour.

Added 3/25/05
I've added a matching toy box. Included in the toybox zip are two recolors, the oak and cherry to match the bed and changing table. The toy box textures are linked to the original maxis toy box.

Added 3/25/05
By request here is a matching sleigh style crib.

Added 3/25/05
I've added a white recolor for the 4 items.

Updated 4/1/05
As requested here is the high chair. I separated the frame from the cushions/tray. The cushions and tray use the Maxis high chair textures. I've included the oak, cherry and white recolors for the frame. I also included a bob the builder cushions in the zip.

I've figured out how to retain the tray animation. Unfortuanately to keep the separate frame recolor I ended up loosing the groundfloor shadow. If you've never downloaded the high chair then download sleighHighChair.zip, this contains the highchair, the frame recolors and the bob the builder cushions. (the bob the builder cushions will work on the original maxis high chair also). The SS_High_Chair_With_Anim.zip contains just the high chair package for those who already have the recolors.

Added 3/31/05
I've added a single and a double bed in the sleigh style. Each bed's bedding is linked to the colonial bedding so can use all existing bedding recolors. Each frame has it's own frame texture. I tried linking the single bed texture to the double beds, but that made the single bed's frame blue in the catalog. Each zip file contains the associate recolors. All interactions and animations should be working.

Added 4/1/05
As requested here is an armoire in the sleigh style. It should have all the original actions and animations. I've included the white and cherry recolors in the zip file.

All objects have unique GUIDs and are EP ready.
Poly counts
Toybox : 1722 (original 1012)

Known Issues
  • Toybox: It is slightly wider than a square so if you try to put it sideways against a wall part of the leg will be in the wall. I'd have to make the toybox narrower to get around it, and I didn't like how it looked.
  • Toybox: Can't seem to put toys back away.
  • Changing Table: Back bleeds thru windows.
  • Toddler Bed: Toddler pulls them self up on a non-existant frame.
  • Crib: Frame doesn't move
  • High Chair: Texture doesn't turn dirty. No ground shadow

Please don't post my original object packages on any sites. Recolor to your hearts content. But please post links in this thread to share with others.

To recolor:
Toybox: maxis toy box (Rip Co Toy Bin??)
Toddler Bed: Frame - New package, Bedding - Maxis Crib (The Kinder Container)
Crib: Frame - New package, Bedding - Maxis Crib (The Kinder Kontainer)
Changing Table: Frame - New package, cushions/stuff - Maxis Changing Table (The Sanitation Station)
Armoire: New package
Single Bed: Frame - New package, Bedding - maxis Bed (Colonial Ironwood Bed)
Double Bed: Frame - New package, Bedding - maxis Bed (Colonial Ironwood Bed)
High Chair: Frame - New package, Cushions/Tray - maxis High Chair (Kinder Koddler)

A big Thanks goes out to Jem for helping me test my stuff

Well, I just want to report, that my sims (different sims in different houses) are not able to give the bottle or food to the toddlers sitting in the highchair. Just standing in front of the high chair and "freeze".
So I don't use the highchair now - but the other stuff works fine.

I am waiting for a few sets of recolors for the sheets before I download. Need more options. So once that is done I will get the toddler bed. Thanks and nice job on the object!

There are a couple sheet options posted already. (Do a forum search on "sleigh". BUT the bedding uses the same as the Maxis Crib. So any bedding recolor you find for the Maxis crib will show up for the toddler bed and sleigh crib also.

Hi, I tested this set and found a few oddities. For instance once the kids take the toys out of the toy boxes they can't be put back in. When I directed my Sims to put the toys away, the toy box reacted like a dresser and gave me the clothing options to change my childs clothing.

In the high chair - my Sim mom had no problem putting her child in the chair and giving her food, but when I tried getting her to take the child out she just froze. I had the same thing happen with the toddler bed. In both cases I had to repeatedly tell the mom to take the child out. It reminded me of the problem I have in my Sims houses with nannies or dads in the house. Only problem this house has no nanny or other adult. The moms a single mother artist who paints masterpieces from home, and cares for her infant.

The beds and armoire work great and all looks great in the game, but I had to take the toddler bed, toy box, and high chair out, because my toddler spent over half her waking time unable to be removed from them.

Just thought I'd let you know. Your work is so nice to look at, I really hated removing them.

I've had a couple people report on the freezing. I'm not sure what is up with that. I know about the toy box not letting the toys be put away, but I haven't figured out how to fix that.

Now the toybox acting like a dresser is a new one on me

On the high chair which version do you have? Does the tray move on the one you have?

I just wanted to say how fantastic your objects are Snow Storm
I have the same problem with the original maxis crib as far as having to keep sending my sims there to pick up the toddler. I'm working on a complete house with pine furniture and have added yours HERE
I haven't completely tryed everything out, will have to get back to you.
