Since The Sims is a life simulation game, a large part of the previous iterations was watching a Sim grow throughout their life… and one of the biggest disappointments fans of the Sims got when The Sims 4 first came out was the lack of the toddler life stage. Young Sims would skip from being a baby to a young child that went to school, did homework, started working on their life skills, and were fairly independent. The lack of helping young Sim family members learn life skills has been something Sims fans have being asking for a long time and, after a lot of work from the development team to get toddlers just right, the new, free update doesn’t disappoint.
We know that the toddler life stage is an experience that many of you have consistently asked for, and it’s very important to us that as we do it in a way that makes sense for The Sims 4, and feels right for our players. – Simguru Lyndsay
Below are some screenshots of just some of the new interactions and things you can experience in-game with the new toddler sims. I’m not going to lie – it’s really cute. It’s bounds and leaps beyond what I could have imagined, based on my experience with the previous Sims games.
