Inspired by the popular show "Rabbie the Bear" on the KidzTube channel, the SimKidz company opened a group of small family fun centers inspired by the beloved Sim toddler program. Unlike a famous TV show many years ago named after a dinosaur, this program emphasizes parent/grandparent/caretaker interaction as well as toddler participation. Siblings are encouraged to play along as well.

There are four main rooms for toddlers:

Shake it Up! contains two jumparoos, three rocking horses and a radio for Sims to schmustle.

True Colors has the Free Time activity table and two easels for adults and children.

In the Sing a Song room, adults can sing or try a comedy routine or poetry reading (family-friendly, please), and toddlers can find their inner muse on the xylophone or piano. The link to TotsInc's Toddler Piano is listed below.

The fourth room, Golden Slumbers, is a quiet room with a refrigerator for that bedtime bottle, a bookcase with books to read before nap time, two toddler mats and a toy box. I listed the link for Phaenoh's toddler mats below.

There are two bathrooms, each with a toddler potty chair, a single toilet, a sink with a mirror, a garbage bin and a changing table. In addition, there is a small office with a Wobbly Wabbit Head toy.

The hallway has a coffee maker and a hot chocolate maker, with a counter in-between in case a Sim wishes to prepare a light snack. There is also a snack vending machine by the left side door. Toddlers can watch the fish in the tank in the hallway. Without a mod, a Sim will have to pay to put fish in there.

I thought the original lot needed more of a side yard, so I expanded it with Lot Adjuster. The yard has three toddler Bouncy Bork Springs, two Sim Bouncers, a mat with two Magical Mystery's Shape, Rattle & Roll boxes, a MYSHUNO game and two swings. There are three benches where visitors can rest.

I have all EPs and SPs on disks.

This lot has been unplayed in a fresh game created specifically for this upload. A copy has been tested in two other games and three different hoods for at least two human weeks (not Sim weeks). If you don't want toddlers on community lots, I found you could convert this to a child's play place fairly easily.

Shown but Not Included:
- Toddler Piano by Totsinc. You will need all the files specified as necessary in the description:
- Tiny Tikes Sleepy Mat by Phaenoh:

Required Mod to Get Toddlers to Visit Community Lots:
- Allow Puppy Kitten Toddler Riders by dickhurt: This requires the Game Edition addon for it to work, as specified in the directions:

Highly Suggested Mods:
- Perfect Plants by twojeffs:
- Visitor Controller by twojeffs: (unless you want the Charlatan to fleece your toddlers' parents while their youngsters play!)
- CEP by Numenor: Without this, because of a Maxis OFB glitch, you will have red windows in the front. You can fix these easily, but CEP is really a must anyway for custom content.
- No Sim Loaded by BoilingOil: This requires Cyjon's Smarter EP Check to work: I have repeatedly checked OETreeDetail logs for anything worrisome several times in the three different hoods (and three different games) where I placed this lot and the logs were clean, but this mod is important for anyone downloading any lots or social mods, no matter who uploaded them.

Optional Mods:
- Aquariums Create Community Dummies by Richi3frog: The fish can disappear, but this is very rare. Most of the time, they stay put.
- Lunartech Lighten-Up Ceiling Replacement Fix:

Lot Size: 3x2
Lot Price (furnished): 101,065

Additional Credits:
To joandsarah77, justpetro, and the other great posters who convinced me to give this lot a shot on MTS, and for putting up with a number of questions about it.
To Chris Hatch, for the Orb. Without it, I would not know what to look for in the OETreeDetail logs.
To Mootilda, whose LotExpander has helped me so often; also for the Turn On All Lights mod.
To all free CC creators who have kept this game alive and thriving after all these years.
