*Compatible with the "Pose List" feature of the newest Pose Player!*

I finally called a truce to my feud with Blender because I needed some child/toddler interactive poses for one of my stories. I think I just needed two, but as usual I went overboard :P

(By the way, if you've never seen this video, go watch and squee. Don't worry, I'll wait right here til you come back.)

Pose tags are as follows:

"Wake up!"
p_splad_bigsis1 (toddler)
c_splad_bigsis1 (child)

"I found your toy!"
p_splad_bigsis2 (toddler)
c_splad_bigsis2 (child)
*Note: you will need an OMSP to put a toy in the child's hands.

p_splad_bigsis3 (toddler)
c_splad_bigsis3 (child)
*Note: you will need an OMSP to put a toy in the toddler's hands.

Oh dear. Well, it was bound to happen eventually ...
p_splad_bigsis4 (toddler)
c_splad_bigsis4 (child)

You can do it!
p_splad_bigsis5 (toddler)
c_splad_bigsis5 (child)

You can do this too ... but you probably shouldn't ...
p_splad_bigsis6 (toddler)
c_splad_bigsis6 (child)

Time to watch Finding Nemo again ... for the fiftieth time ...
p_splad_bigsis7 (toddler)
c_splad_bigsis7 (child)

Didn't make it through the movie. Oh well. Try again tomorrow.
p_splad_bigsis8 (toddler)
c_splad_bigsis8 (child)

Known issues:
While testing this set, I noticed that the child and toddler are very likely to be looking the wrong way when they pose. If that happens, just re-enter the pose and they should snap correctly.

Teenagers cannot use the "toddler carry" pose. The toddler will be floating above the teen's shoulder and they won't line up. Sorry. They can use the "child carry" pose, as the floating is not nearly as visible.

You will have to use "moveobjects on" to place the sims in position. Once you cancel the poses, the sims will lump together as usual. This is okay! Direct them to walk away from each other and all will be well.
