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.
I have posted an animated version here:

Are you tired of your sims leaving the babies on the floor all the time? Then this swing is the ticket for you.

This swing was requested by CarolynBetty and I though it was a wonderful idea. It doesn't actually swing..I'm so happy to get it to actually work for infants that I decided to share it now. I wanted to have it increase their fun but could only get that to work for toddlers and sims would no longer place infants in the swing with it coded to increase fun. If I figure out how to add the swing motion and increase fun I will update it and if I find that enough people are interested in it.

The animation placing the infant in and taking them out are strange but once the infant is seated it works great. I disable giving a bottle while in the swing as my sims were constantly getting bottles.

The pie menu will show all household member for placing in chair but only toddlers and infants can actually be placed in it.

The baby swing was one item I could not have gone without when my kids were infants. So why should the sims go without one?

Is anyone interested in a highchair for infants? I actually started out getting the highchair to work first than created the swing mesh. Or is this to unrealistic?

If you have any problems please be sure to let me know. Please don't forget to click the thanks button if you like this item. I really love to hear your thought and opinions too.

You can find this item under General/Child for $50.

Does't she look happy!

This items does not always work with infants, it seems there is some sorta random things that allows it to work one time but not the next. For infants only...I have not had any problems using it for toddlers.

I have the anti-social worker hack installed and that did not cause me any problems, the one I use is by Inge Jones found here:

So cute! Thanks!

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

I love the blue one.

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.

Rebecah, This is wonderful, I am very anxious to use it in my game.
(I couldn't do without my baby swing when my kids were little too.)
Thanks again for this download and CarolynBetty for requesting it!

Unfortunately, this doesn't work in my game. I can select to have an adult/teen put the infant in the swing, but they just end up putting the baby on the floor instead. Nothing was in the way of the swing when this happened. I tried it several times.

I have all EP's so it is possible that you need to have one of the EP's for this to work sorry I have no way to test it without all EP's.

You may also need to use this cheat:
boolProp testingCheatsEnabled true

Thanks for this great swing. I can't wait to use it with my sim babies. I would love a highchair also. Great Ideas! Keep up the great work!

What a great idea!
A high chair would be even better! Go ahead and make one, I'd download it!

OMG how come this isnt featured or something? Even without the swinging animations its a treasure to have something so adorable for the sim babies to use - as they seem limitted to little else but the floor or cribs anyway! This is wonderful! Thanks so much! I cant wait to test it out - and even if it's never animated am certain it will be a must have in almost all of my sim households! Thanks again!

Alright, I figured out the problem. I did the boolProp cheat, and I was able to use the chair. But then I kept getting errors having to do with the anti-social worker hack that I have downloaded. So I think the error has something to do with that hack. Anyway, cool download, but the no social worker hack is a must for me, so
