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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
5/31/05 - I've uploaded a new version of the Toybox with the uvmapping cleaned up. It should now be mapped so that pictures can be put on all sides cleanly. Both this and the original version use the same guid, so you only can have one or the other in game. Download to get the updated version.

Original Post:
Here is a new mesh for a toddler bed, "sleigh" style. This object is cloned from the Kinder Kontainer crib, and it should have all the animations of the original crib. I modified the behaviours to only allow toddlers, hopefully I did it right. The object is Colour enabled and EP ready. The frame is recolourable. The bedding is linked to the original crib bedding materials. I've included one frame recolour, and the Bob the Builder bedding shown in the picture.

Updated 3/23/05
I've made some small tweaks to the toddler bed. I also modified the Bob the builder bedding so it can be used on a crib. Parts of it do appear flipped, unfortunately that is a limitation of the way Maxis mapped the object. I've combined the bed, bed recolour and bedding recolour into on zip file.

Added 3/23/05
By popular request here is the matching Sleigh style changing table. I separated out the frame from the pad/accessories, so they can now be recoloured separately! Included in the zip file is the changing table, a cherry wood frame recolour and a bob the builder pad/accessories recolour.

Added 3/25/05
I've added a matching toy box. Included in the toybox zip are two recolors, the oak and cherry to match the bed and changing table. The toy box textures are linked to the original maxis toy box.

Added 3/25/05
By request here is a matching sleigh style crib.

Added 3/25/05
I've added a white recolor for the 4 items.

Updated 4/1/05
As requested here is the high chair. I separated the frame from the cushions/tray. The cushions and tray use the Maxis high chair textures. I've included the oak, cherry and white recolors for the frame. I also included a bob the builder cushions in the zip.

I've figured out how to retain the tray animation. Unfortuanately to keep the separate frame recolor I ended up loosing the groundfloor shadow. If you've never downloaded the high chair then download, this contains the highchair, the frame recolors and the bob the builder cushions. (the bob the builder cushions will work on the original maxis high chair also). The contains just the high chair package for those who already have the recolors.

Added 3/31/05
I've added a single and a double bed in the sleigh style. Each bed's bedding is linked to the colonial bedding so can use all existing bedding recolors. Each frame has it's own frame texture. I tried linking the single bed texture to the double beds, but that made the single bed's frame blue in the catalog. Each zip file contains the associate recolors. All interactions and animations should be working.

Added 4/1/05
As requested here is an armoire in the sleigh style. It should have all the original actions and animations. I've included the white and cherry recolors in the zip file.

All objects have unique GUIDs and are EP ready.
Poly counts
Toybox : 1722 (original 1012)

Known Issues
  • Toybox: It is slightly wider than a square so if you try to put it sideways against a wall part of the leg will be in the wall. I'd have to make the toybox narrower to get around it, and I didn't like how it looked.
  • Toybox: Can't seem to put toys back away.
  • Changing Table: Back bleeds thru windows.
  • Toddler Bed: Toddler pulls them self up on a non-existant frame.
  • Crib: Frame doesn't move
  • High Chair: Texture doesn't turn dirty. No ground shadow

Please don't post my original object packages on any sites. Recolor to your hearts content. But please post links in this thread to share with others.

To recolor:
Toybox: maxis toy box (Rip Co Toy Bin??)
Toddler Bed: Frame - New package, Bedding - Maxis Crib (The Kinder Container)
Crib: Frame - New package, Bedding - Maxis Crib (The Kinder Kontainer)
Changing Table: Frame - New package, cushions/stuff - Maxis Changing Table (The Sanitation Station)
Armoire: New package
Single Bed: Frame - New package, Bedding - maxis Bed (Colonial Ironwood Bed)
Double Bed: Frame - New package, Bedding - maxis Bed (Colonial Ironwood Bed)
High Chair: Frame - New package, Cushions/Tray - maxis High Chair (Kinder Koddler)

A big Thanks goes out to Jem for helping me test my stuff

The bed is beautiful, you did an awesome job. Thank you. And if you succeed with the changing table my sim babies will have the most awesome bedroom. Again, thank you for your great work.

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

This is great! As for the parent helping the toddler out of the bed, when they learn to walk, they can get out of the crib by themselves.(at least they have in my game.) Thus they will be able to get out of bed! They're pretty sneaky about getting out of the crib too! LOL!

This bed is just wonderful, thank you so very much. I feel inspired to make some new bedding sets for the little ones now.

For those looking for the mobile, it looks like the one Rentechd made, which can be found here:

I will eventually make some other bedding. Right now I'm going to concentrate on making other "Sleigh" style objects. Here is a sneak peak at the changing table.
#50 Old 21st Mar 2005 at 1:17 PM
SnowStorm, your stuff is looking great! keep up the good work, I can't wait for the Changing Table. I'll make sure I have it in my Sims. You're amazing! How are you able to make it? Any ideas because I always make to make objects and not really sure how.
