This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

These are kinda dorky but maybe one of you could use them. The preview is pretty bad but they look better in game, tho a little bit fuzzy. Robin

Cute! I was surprised that Maxis didn't include any balloon recolors in the Holiday pack, and the present colors just didn't fit for the party my sims were throwing.

Thank you.
