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.
This download is part of the Stuff for Kids Creator Challenge
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Here are some new outfits for your toddlers! There are two hoodie meshes: one comes with pants and shoes, and the other comes with a skirt and sandals. The meshes are included in the zip files.

The hoodies with pants can be worn by both genders. They come in eight colours.



The hoodies with skirts are just for girls. They come in six colours.




I converted these from my kids' hoodies. There may be a little bit of clipping at the waist when the toddler sits or wiggles, but there's really no way around that with busy toddler Sims.

Polygon Counts:
hoodie with pants = 1972
hoodie with skirt = 1942

These are SO gorjus!! I'll download the ones with the long pants for sure. Is it possible for you to make a version with the skirts but with tights and shoes instead of sandals?

Thanks for your wonderful work

Awww, adorable! The hoodies look so cute on little ones
I also second vr795's request/question about the version with tights and boots - this would make a perfect autumn/spring outfit.

Thank you very much!

These are cute, but they look a little wide at the bottom. Almost like a baby has a floaty or a ring of fat hiding under their jackets!

That part is the same as the kids' hoodies, the bottoms of which are based on a Maxis mesh. In a smaller size, with thick sweatshirt fabric, the bottoms would stand out from the Sims' bodies.

You don't have to download them if you don't like them.

I downloaded them precisely BECAUSE they look 'wide at the bottom'
That they look 'oversized and comfy' is what I luv about these outfits LOL!

Winter clothing on my sims, especially my kid sims, that fits like a second skin drives me totally batty! I never download sweaters and jackets that are skin-tight. They look so 'un-natural'

Winterwear is supposed to look bulky, loose-fitting, warm and cosy!
Fit sims look anorexic as it is, in my opinion. (I can't stand my male adult sims in short shorts with those skinny chicken legs they all have! eeww!)
I just adore tods & kids clothes that make them look like they have some meat on those scrawney bones. So PLEASE....bring on more baggy, oversized stuff, and me shall download!!

A sweatshirt like that would usually bunch up in several different places, not in one big ring on the bottom. I don't think it would puff out so much either unless the fabric was really thick, and it looks like the inner edge of the bottom doesn't even touch the Sim so there'd be no resistance to cause the shirt to bunch up at all. The kids version seems more properly scaled so it looks more natural. I'd love to download these if the mesh behaved a little more realistically; as I said before, I think they're really cute.

If you'd like a better mesh, you're welcome to try making your own. I won't be changing this one.

In my first attempts, this mesh did bunch in other places. Unfortunately, the poor little Sim ended up looking like Quasimodo (hunchback) with alien arms (the bunching around the elbows looked really weird). Sometimes when you make a mesh, you have to just accept that you can't get it to look exactly the way you want it to. There are limitations because of the way the Sims animate.

Could I have made the fabric less lumpy around the waist? Sure. But I wanted a hoodie that was similar to the kids' one. And as far as the fabric goes, I've had hoodies that were so stiff that they puffed out at the bottom... and that was in in an adult size! I don't think it's that much of a stretch to believe they'd do that in a toddler size.

Taste is taste... some like it, some don't... that's what make the world interesting ! I simply fell in love with your hoodies at first sight ! And I love the way you presented your work, your toddlers are so cute; and I'm aware that only making the picture was a great deal of work. Congratulations these have a very good chance for winning the challenge. Please keep on doing so sweet things and thank you for sharing.

I think these hoodies are very cute. And about them being too lumpy? or being realistic.. Well I think they are realistc enough, I like them. Hoodies for children are better, but these are still very, very nice. Thank you for sharing!!!
