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.

Yay I had a frame pretty much like that, now my Sim kids can have one too. Thank you.

Having problems with custom content after installing a new EP? http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=197511 might help :)

These look great; thanks!

Oh, and the counting frame is usually called an "abacus" in English.

Thanks for the info Corylea! and sorry for the mistake.
I found this on the net and I wrote the wrong word:

Sorry I can't take requests anymore!
And I will probably never convert my creations for TS2 to TS3.

Thanks so much for the great looking toys. I especially like the "abacus" it is really nice to have a more upright toy for our tots to play with. The colors are very nice too.

The objects are a wonderful addition to the kids toys range especially with no expansion. I really like the abacus. Thank you for your work.

Cute! Do they build skills or are they just for fun?

abacus is the older version term, the counting frame means the same, no problem

Thanks Jack! In fact, when we type "counting frame" in google/images box, we immediately find a lot of ...abacuses.

The "abacus" give points of logic skill
The musical box give points of creativity skill
