This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is a mod to allow children to carry toddlers, made by me, PuddingFace and Sofmc9.

I always remembered taking care of my little cousin when I was small, so I thought let's make it possible in the Sims 3!



So, basically this mod allows children to carry toddlers and more or less take care of their basic needs without stretching.

Watch gameplay video here https://youtu.be/jGFRbqWoqC4

Mod Info

- This mod was built and tested with game version 1.69, but should work with other versions.
- What type of mod is this? - This is a tuning mod along with Skydome's pick up child script mod.
- Animations - most animations are custom made, but some have been converted but tweaked a bit. Some animations may not look very nice, like the change outfit and toss in air interactions. Also, the toddler was originally lower but due to location problems they have been raised and using EA's carry toddler idles.

- Children can put in and take toddlers out of cribs and high chairs, sit down with them, walk to lots with them (they can't ride their bikes while holding a toddler) and interact with other sims, basically do whatever an adult sim who's holding a toddler can do.

- Children can autonomously take out toddlers from high chairs and cribs, and will usually perform a toss in air or tickle interaction to them. But, they can't necessarily take care of toddlers autonomously by holding them and putting them into a crib or high chair.

Please also read the ReadMe file for more notices you might want to know about.

Interactions

Children can perform the following interactions on toddlers:

-Pick up
-Put down
-Tickle
-Toss in air
-Change outfit
-Put in crib or high chair
-Put a tired toddler to bed.

Some interactions, as I also said before, might not look very good in a way of clipping or floating, such as the tickle, toss in air and change outfit. Others such as put in crib, take out high chair look okay. Children also will not stretch when performing the interactions. I am not very keen of the tickle and toss in air animations IMO. Children can also rock with a toddler if you have Supernatural's rocking chair or store rocking chair.

Known Issues

-Children can go to community lots and houses with the toddler, but they won't get onto their bikes while holding the tot. So either get an adult to go somewhere with the child, and they'll go inside the vehicle holding the toddler, or command your sim to walk to the destination. I recommend using a no babysitter mod if you don't want the babysitter popups coming up all the time,
like NRaas GoHere has an option to disable babysitters.

-If you command your sim child to tickle, toss in air, put in crib, feed in high chair or change outfit to a sitting toddler, they will not do it due to something in the script. So a child has to first be holding a toddler before performing any interactions on them.

-The placement of the toddler's arms do look a bit weird, but I couldn't do anything about it
-The child's arm may be too apart from the toddler sometimes, like when they sit down but it's minor.
-You might see 2 options for an adult to pick up a toddler, this should hopefully be fixed soon.

Conflicts

This mod will conflict with any other tuning mod that changes any of the interactions listed above.


-TOU

-Please do not re-upload our mod to paysites or claim it as your own!
-Enjoy and Happy Simming!

Thank you PuddingFace, Sofmc9 and SuperGal<3 for helping me test it out

Thank you so very much for this ! It is a wish come true, and plays wonderful in game. I have a tiny request, could you make it so that the children can potty-train, teach to walk/talk too without the streach that they do now? Lots of hugs & Kisses for this mod :D

Ah, you're welcome

Yes, I am actually working more on this mod, such as *maybe* later they can go on a stroll with them, but it might take me a bit of time since the teach to "" has quite a few animations. But don't worry, I'll get to it soon.

Thank you, no this doesn't conflict, but if you enable the diaper change with NRaas Returner you'll see 2 options to change toddler's diaper.

I love this! It's a pain to have to wait until a baby becomes a teenager to do pretty much anything.

One other thing I'd love for toddlers to be able to do is interact with their pets. I'm pretty sure I spent most of age three dragging around my long-suffering cat.

Aw, that's cute, I'll think about it for my upcoming new mod for toddlers.

This is amazing! Thank you so much for sharing. It always felt weird that the elder kids would not care for their toddler siblings. Now there's a mod for that :)

When my child pick up the toddler, he goes up to his head I don't know if it is a glitch but I don't understand why

Does the toddler's head clip with the child's? If so that's normal, I originally had the toddler lower down but they'd always float up in the air, so they use the normal toddler idles. Can you post a picture?

Okay, well usually the child's head might move into the toddler's, causing a bit of clipping.
