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.

Updated: Thanks to stormwench I believe the problem with this only being usable occassionally, for infants only, is resolved. You may need to delete your Groups.cache found in your My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2. This is only need if you had my previous version. Not if this is your first time downloading.

Some recommend this file be delete each time you start your game. Only to make your game start faster, not related to my creations.

Thanks stormwench!

There has been no reported problems using this for toddlers.

If you downloaded the first version please download the updated file. The Recolor file did not need to be changed.

New downloader please download the Updated version and recolor if you want the recolor that is.

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.

Today I have a what I think was called a Jumpin Jack or Johnny Jumper. Thanks to Wanda1000 for her detailed information about this item. I'd forgot about these. I did have a few request for this item.

I had one for my daughter hanging in an arched doorway one day I took her out and threw her up, clunked the poor kids head on the archway, I forgot it was so low in that area. Needless to say I though I'd given her brain damage and was off to the ER. Fortunately she was fine except I'm sure she had a major headache. I think I wanted to forget about this baby item.

I did not use the repository technique for this, but I'm wondering if people perfer this technique. Please let me know if you prefer this, it's no longer very hard for me to do so, I would just like to get some opinions on this. For those unfamilar with this technique it pulls the textures from another item which gives smaller files and usually more color options.

As with my other baby items you must use the
boolProp testingCheatsEnabled true .
I personally love this cheat it give you so many other options.

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 bouncy.

I made the straps long enough to give the appearance of hanging from a tree thanks to Wanda1000 vision.

I have a couple of recolors posted also, multi colored is not pictured. I may add a pic later.

OH NO! I don't want to end you creative streak. But it is good to play the game from time to time. Something I myself seem to have gotten away from as I'm spending too much time creating.

Wow, this is very clever! Thanks for another thing for usually ignored babies.

Gosh you've been busy. I love it that you are making so many baby and toddler items. The game has been sadly lacking. I myself like the repository technique. If you tie all things in a group together to a main mesh and the recolors in my opinion it is very much better because it cuts down on the number of files needed for the items. Thank you sooooo much.

Thank you! My Dad said I had one when I was a baby. He said he used to twirl it up then let go and I'd just laugh and laugh, then walk into the wall. Okay the walking into the wall was a joke. Thank you!
