This download is a custom pose or animation. This means that you will need the Pose Player or Animation Player mod by cmomoney installed in order to use the download in your game.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
*Compatible with the "Pose List" feature of the newest Pose Player!*

This is a set I wanted to make a while ago, but couldn't quite work things out with Blender, sigh We're still not on the best of terms, but at least we cooperated long enough for me to get this idea produced in time for Father's Day I made this set specifically with guys in mind, because so many toddler sets seem to focus on moms. Dads love their kids, too! It's called "Little Man" because little Aidan was my model, but of course you can use it on a female toddler, no problem. Do be aware that some of the toddler poses are likely to warp a dress or a longer skirt.

Pose tags are as follows:

a_splad_littleman01 -- comforting.
p_splad_littleman01 -- crying.

a_splad_littleman02 -- holding baby upside down.
p_splad_littleman02 -- being held.

a_splad_littleman03 -- flexing arms.
p_splad_littleman03 -- flexing arms.

a_splad_littleman04 -- being hugged.
p_splad_littleman04 -- hugging adult's neck.

a_splad_littleman05 -- sleeping. (This pose can be used without a toddler.)
p_splad_littleman05 -- sleeping.

a_splad_littleman06 -- playing video games. (Controller accessory is by deggdegg and is available here.)
p_splad_littleman06 -- playing video games.

a_splad_littleman07 -- holding baby.
p_splad_littleman07 -- being held.

a_splad_littleman08 -- standing with hands in pockets.
p_splad_littleman08 -- peeking between adult's legs.

Known issues:
*These poses were designed using a male rig and were not tested with female sims. You can use a female sim, of course, but you may get some undesirable clipping in spots.

And as always, you'll need to use "moveobjects on" to place the sims. When you cancel their posing, they'll lump up together, so make sure to pull the toddler from underneath the couch for poses 5 and 6!

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.

If you're not having any issues with any of the other poses, try using one of the poses that is working correctly, and then inputting the codes for pose 3. The toddler and adult should snap together with no issues then.

If you still have problems, show me a screenshot of what's happening in your game.

You would have to put the cheat moveobjects on and press alt and move the sim!
i hope this works for you
