Updated for v1.64.84
With this mod, sims will automatically put tablets back in their inventories after they're done using them. The Slablet and the Wabbit Tablet are included in this mod as separate .package files, see table below. This mod simply changes the put down strategy of tablets to be in a Sim's inventory by default.

Mod Status for v1.58.63
Just updated for the Discover University update (v1.58.63). Only a minor line was added. In the object files, dorm storage chests were added as a valid inventory type for tablets. I have updated the mod files to include this line of code and included a merged package as well for both tablets (yay! ). Functionally, the added line for dorm chests does nothing as sims will still be forced to store tablets in their inventories autonomously anyway. But, now if you choose to, you should be able to manually make sims store tablets in these chests.

tl;dr Still functions correctly. Update to be able to manually store tablets in dorm storage chests.

Does this resolve the ancient bug where if a toddler is holding the tablet and it gets sent to daycare the tablet is removed from the game?

Hello! Nies' Sketchpad in inventory fix makes sims store the digitalistic sketchpad in their inventories. I highly recommend using it!

I've never encountered this bug before, so I don't really know what could exactly be happening, but, presumably, this mod would not be able to fix a bug of that scope. This mod only forces sims to put down tablets in their inventory after they are done interacting with them. If the game is removing or deleting the instance of the tablet entirely when the toddler is sent to daycare, then the issue is beyond what this mod can do. Do you have any more information on this bug? I can try to replicate it and see what's happening.

Thank you so much! In my 100 babies game, I was always frustrated with my toddlers wasting time when wandering to a table and putting the tablet there.

Great mod, but I don't think this is compatible with the newest update?? Or maybe mine is just wigging out.

Yeah, I agree. Sims just throw the tablet on the floor now.
