(4/3/10) - Files no longer show up as "corrupted" in the downloads dashboard.
(4/3/10) - Fixed lighting so that toys no longer cast overly-dark shadows indoors.

Yay, it’s finally finished! I’ve been working on this project since January and am now finally ready to share it with you all.

From TS2 expansion packs Free Time, Teen Style Stuff, Open for Business, IKEA Stuff, and Apartment Life, I converted 15 of the very best toys into much-needed items for your kiddos in TS3. Most of them are purely decorative, but four of them are actual working toys (non-default), which can be picked up, played with, and put into the toy box for storage. Because of their small size, I chose not to make them CASt-able, but every single other toy can be recolored. Yay for variety!

All of these have custom ground shadows, custom environment scores, size-appropriate slot placement, and all the original names and descriptions (where applicable). I reduced the files sizes as much as I could and tested them thoroughly after packaging. They have multiple color presets (shown below), part of which match the original objects’ color options, and part of which I added just for the fun of it (and to round out the group).

All toys range in price from §20 to §440 and can be found in the catalog under function sort: kids/miscellaneous kids and kids/toys, as well as room sort: kids’ room/kids’ décor and kids’ room/toys.

I hope you enjoy them! I know I will. I should have another conversion done within the next few months or so, but until then, I’ll see you around!
