Our Opinions: Toddler Stuff Pack

It’s that wonderful time again, a brand new stuff pack has just been announced so I thought it was the perfect time for another Our Opinion! We’re discussing our thoughts and feelings about the new Toddler Stuff Pack which is releasing towards the end of this month. Please note while this article is based off the opinions and views of some of the staff it is not a reflection of the whole team.

The main thoughts we had was that this is definitely a good thing, we all love the idea of toddlers getting some much needed attention, that’s not to say that the current Toddler content is bad but with them only just being released they’ve been neglected for two years.

Krista – I’m really looking forward to the new objects like the ballpit and slides as well as the new social event. I think it’s a good pack which will go well with the Kids Room Stuff and Parenthood packs. Not only that I think storytellers will find this pack a good addition to the game as well.

 

After their initial release back in January it was fair to say the stuff we got was great, but it was all very indoor, there wasn’t any reason to allow toddlers to venture outside and this pack fixes that, with the new slides and tunnels our toddlers can leave the house (with supervision of course) and get dirty.

I personally was glad the focus was more on items that weren’t just stuff you put in the bedroom, the stuff we have for that is more than sufficient and like I said previously we needed those outdoor items. The fact we’re getting a new social event and interactions is just icing on the cake, a great addition to s great pack.

Jovan – Love that there are so many new objects and interactions that come with this pack. What we got for free in January was more than enough – this just adds a fun twist to Toddlers in The Sims 4

 

We believe that this step towards more age-specific packs is a step in the right direction, it’s undeniable that toddlers have always received the last love (next to elders) and it’s great the sims team are addressing this, it’s a shame the same couldn’t be said for previous titles.

So that’s it, we think this is a fantastic pack idea and looks like the execution is fantastic, the amount of new items send clothes looks brilliant and we can’t wait to check this pack out when it’s released on the 24th August, let us know what you think about the announcement below.

  • This stuff should have came with parenthood instead of the bare bones game we had. You people sound like a puff piece site for EA lol

    • It’s okay to like stuff, Julia. And Parenthood was just a game pack, and a pretty chock-full one at that. They couldn’t have shoe-horned in even more content, not without raising it to a full-blown expansion pack.

    • Parenthood was about parenting, like the other comments have said the pack has a huge amount of content and features, in what way was it bare boned? It added a whole new system into the game as well as a load of clothes and functional items. Toddler stuff is focusing just on toddlers and means we have a whole load of new content just for toddlers which unfortunately due to their release date have been neglected.

  • Watching the trailer, I’m seriously getting excited, and I don’t even do that much with toddlers! But with THREE new premium objects (the ball pit, slide, and jungle gym), a new social event type, the new “make believe” feature, and all the cool new objects (including a new dollhouse and toybox that can be used by children, and those great rugs (although I have no idea where I’m going to put such a large object, lol), and those stacked pillows, and the wagon cooler, and the picnic stuff, and everything else), not to mention all the great new CAS assets … well, I for one definitely feel like we’ll be getting our money’s worth in this pack!

  • I think this looks like a great Stuff Pack. My only problem is something I started having back in Vampires…
    The names are AWFUL, they don’t even bother trying to be creative! Like at least do Play Date Stuff or something.
