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.

Thought I might try this, and then couldn't stop. So here are all toddler hats that came with Generations and Seasons, as well as most of the store's toddler-hats converted to baby-accessoires. The only one I left out is the store aviator-hat, because it's mostly the same as the one from seasons. And the tassles were clipping.
Base-game compatible - the original toddler-hats are not required.
  • All hats found under Clothing/Everyday/Accessoires, categorized as earrings. You need NRaas MasterController to get your baby into CAS and put the hats on. They are not valid for random, and therefore won't appear on newborns.
  • Although there is an "Outwear" button for babies in CAS, you can't set outwear for babies like you do for other ages. It's not working properly. The only category really usable is Everyday.
  • All hats can be used together with purpleplumbobs baby pacifier, which is categorized as glasses.
  • I've included custom thumbnails. Please do no delete them - by default, the game creates a completely blank thumbnail. Also keep this in mind if you want to safe your custom presets.
  • The sun-hat is only enabled for girls, everything else is unisex.
  • The winter-hat comes with two presets: The first with stencil, the second without. (It's thumbnails are mirrored - on the Sim the stencil is on the other side of the head.)
  • These are not hat-slider compatible (it doesn't work on babies). But I've taken special care to avoid clipping with QuizicalGin's baby-hair .
  • More QuizicalGin: Like so often, I made this with her unwrapped baby in mind (found here ) However, I think it doesn't look so very bad with the blanket baby, especially the warm hats.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Oh my ... Danjaley these are absolutely adorable. For once I don't mind adding HATS to the game. I've got baby outfits but could never find any hats for them. Thank you so much for these. Awesome job!

This is just purely awesome cc! Ever since TS2, I've wanted hats along with pacifiers for my babies (pacifiers especially for toddlers); why didn't any creator think of this idea before? At last they're here at least! Thank you for this convertion. Much appreciated! It's starting feel like all good stuff for the sims 3 come towards the end of it.. Weird. I hope the sims 3 store never close its doors and at this stage the thought of not having CC is unthinkable.

Hmmm, I shoes as accessoires might work out if I find the right bone to assign them to. I'm not so sure about clothes. I find them even more difficult to make than hair.

Awww... These are even cuter on babies because they're so widdle! Seriously, this is one more thing that helps make babies more fun to have in game. The hats are adorable.

They're adorable, but they're not valid, for outerwear. The category has been omitted, from CASP, entirely, in s3pe. Can anything be done with that? Also, yes, shoes would be adorable. Thanks!

As far as I know, babys always wear everyday clothing - even outside in deep snow and in the bathtub. You'll have to go to cas every time you want to change your baby into something different and edit everyday wear. Theoretically, these hats are enabled for outwear. So if ever someone makes a mod to unlock clothing-categories for babies, they should be there.
In s3pe, outerwear is found in CASP(Grid) under "Clothing Category / [12] Outerwear". Maybe you have a pre-Seasons version of s3pe?

That's the most adorable pieces of CC I've seen ! I don't play with babies often, but I might add one or two to my families just to try these cute hats :D
