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.
Update January 13, 2009Added Free Time Version to give toddler enthusiasm for tinkering. I also reduce the poly count and fix the shadows in this version.

A toy to teach mechanical skills was requested by goody-goody. Thanks for the request goody-goody.

I coded it to give mechanical skill and at a little faster speed not a lot but somewhat. If you find it too fast or too slow, please leave a comment in this thread.

I works about the same as the Maxis Shape Box except they just hit on it. I changed the order the animations come up.

There are 2 files included 1 is the Hammer and the other the actual peg box. You need to have both files placed in your download directory for this to work.

It is priced the same as the Maxis Shape Box and found under General/Child.










Enjoy!

Face Count for peg box 592

Thank you so much. I really love it when people come up with new objects, not just new meshes of standard ones. You really made my day. ^_^

If I remember correctly, Boblishman's mirror for toddlers increases body skill.

This looks really cool, but I tried it in my game and it didn't work. Every time the toddler made an attempt to play with it, he got an error message. I don't suppose you know why that is?

Thanks for the FT update.
I've had this object in my game for a long time, but it got supplanted by the activity table (my hood is full of tinkerers, for some reason).
I'm very happy that I can get full use from this great object again.
