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 couldn't sleep last night so I got up and created this mesh. I think it came out pretty good for being half awake.

I created the animations, coded and textured it this morning. The animation is quite suttle just little leg movements, with hands placed at the proper position.

Toddler gain fitness, fun and body skills while riding it.

Found under Hobbies/Exercise for $89.

It does work with the base game and any combination of EP's.

Enjoy!

I got the pink color for my little girl, and after she rode it it turned green. Other than that it's fantastic!

Thanks for your report. I didn't mention the recolor because all of my rideable items do not keep the recolors once the item stops the colors changes back to the main color. Sorry, I just can't seem to figure out this flaw. I should just create another item to have the pink color.

Rebecah, you make the most cute and adorable rideable toys for the game.
When I see a download with your name it makes me happy and want to run off and try it in the game.
I have one house with four toddlers & two babies that I have not allowed to age just to enjoy all the new things you create.
Thank You for being the best creator of animated toys from babies to children.

Yes it's a ! Even semi alien childs love it ! :D



The speed is maybe a little too fast for young childs (especially when there is obstacles) but I appreciate that they turn their head when they are seing their family. :p
