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.
This download is part of the Stuff for Kids Creator Challenge
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Moses Basket:

A traditional and simple design, variations of this basic form have been used for ages as an infant's first bed. The small size means it can fit just about anywhere with ease. Little babies sleep well in moses baskets - often better than in a larger crib due to the enclosed feeling being comforting and cozy.


Features:
  • Infant-only. Moses baskets are not suitable for toddlers, and thus sims cannot put toddlers in the basket. You will need to get a separate full-size crib for your kidlets once they become toddlers.
  • Interchangeable beddings and frame colours. Use any bedding with any frame/basket colour. Beddings come in cream, white, pink, blue, green, and yellow. Frames/baskets come in white, grey, light, medium, dark, and black wood tones.
  • Lower price than Maxis cribs.
  • Suitable for sims from most any era - contemporary, medieval, renaissance, etc. can all use it and it will be appropriate for their homes.


Thanks to:
  • Echo, for telling me how to make it infant-only.
  • Lethe and Phae, for object meshing advice.
  • Quaxi, and everyone who has contributed to the development of SimPE.
  • Delphy and the rest of the MTS2 staff, for giving me a great place to learn how to make pretty things for pixel dollies.

Hey, I'm having the issue where it won't work if there's a toddler on the lot, can you tell me how to make it so toddlers can use it? I'm sure that'll fix the problem.

Could anyone make this file into a "zip" file that uses windows explorer not adobe reader, so that I can download it?
Thanks.

I REALLY love this but for some reason my computer cannot download it...
If someone could change the file type into "zip" that would be amazing!
("zip" is the file that uses windows explorer)
Thanks, if possible!

Or you could download any archive extractor program, like Winrar, 7zip, etc... I'm not changing the file type and you're really limiting yourself, refusing to get a simple program that will let you use rars and 7z files - which are pretty common here and elsewhere.

Has this issue of the crib not being accessible to the second born been fixed yet? Because this is a lovely crib and all babies should be able to use it!

When I had Sims 2, this basket was always the FIRST thing I bought for a new baby. Brings back my ts2 memories.. :') This was always a lifesaver, so that my Sims automatically knew which bed to put the toddler in, and which to put the baby in. LOVED IT(: amazingg.

I don't know if this issue has been reported yet. I downloaded the Moses Basket a few weeks ago to use in my Sims 2 game. I booted up my game and I put the basket in the house of a couple that had a newborn. When the baby was born, I had the mother try and put the baby into the basket. But when my cursor hovered over it, it said "There are no options available". I gave up a while later with trying to figure out what was wrong and I just deleted it. Anyone else have this problem?

I love this mesh! It's perfect for my medieval and Victorian sims. Though I recently had a problem similar to what others are describing above. My sim had a daughter and later had a set of twin sons. I was impatient and used a cheat to accelerate the second pregnancy so the three were in infant stage at the same time for about a day. The daughter grew into a toddler and I replaced her Moses basket with a toddler bed. There were no problems until the twins needed to be changed. When the parents were done with the task, I tried to have them set the babies in their baskets but there were no actions available. There isn't much more I can tell you as I had to uninstall my game recently because of a computer crash. Is there any way to get around this problem once I do reinstall my game?

I've been having this issue as well. It worked great for the first kid on lot 1, then I had to buy a new one for the second baby because it wouldn't let me select it the moses to do anything. That worked for a while.

Now, though (lot 2), it's not working at all. I'll have to try it in a different house and see if it's just the lot, since it's had some other interesting things happen (nanny vanishing into thin air, the gardener spontaneously combusting just as she finished for the day. The sims having twins having the pregnancy from hell despite the lifetime rewards for lower decay). I think I'll try buying 2 first. Then maybe re-installing it and trying (I know at least one hack has to be installed in order, so maybe it needs to come in after something?). Then moving them in and out of the hosue. I"ll report in if any of these work.

But I'll agree with the rest of the comments - it's an adorable object, and thanks so much for creating it!

Update: It's not just the one house. Anothe rhouse has the same issue.
(Also, IIRC the nanny didn't vanish - she got stuck under the house, which was lowered for a basement, but didn't actually have one... including no stairs to escape. )
