Exchange this classic symbol of friendship with the Sims closest to you!
Sims 4 Friendship Bracelets are a brand new feature with the 13th Expansion Pack! In The Sims 4 Growing Together, child and older Sims can make friendship bracelets and exchange them with other Sims they are very close to. Of course, this is a great way to add a little bit of extra depth to close relationships. Also, it’s very nostalgic. Who doesn’t remember making friendship bracelets to give to their best friend when they were a kid? I know I do!
We’re going to show you how to craft, exchange, and even take back the friendship bracelets your Sims make!
Sims 4 Friendship Bracelets: How to Make
To make a Sims 4 friendship bracelet, purchase a bead kit from Build/Buy. The kit is located in the Activities and Skills section, under Creativity. It’s a small open box with crafting materials inside. Place the kit anywhere you like on the lot and click on it to have your Sim start making a Sims 4 friendship bracelet. Friendship bracelets can also be made at a kid’s activity table. Child and older Sims can make friendship bracelets in The Sims 4 Growing Together.
It doesn’t take very much time to make a friendship bracelet. Once the bracelet is finished, it will be in your Sim’s inventory. Click on the bracelet and select someone on the lot to exchange it with. Friendship bracelets can only be exchanged between Sims who are at least Good Friends.
There are five different Sims 4 Friendship Bracelet styles. You can see them in the image below.
If the Sim you wish to exchange bracelets with is part of the same household, you will have to make the other Sim craft a Sims 4 friendship bracelet, too. Both Sims within the same household need to have a friendship bracelet in their inventory in order to exchange them. If you want to exchange your Sim’s bracelet with a Sim who is not part of the active household, you can do so even if the other Sim doesn’t have a friendship bracelet in their inventory. The game will generate a friendship bracelet in The Sims 4 Growing Together for them to exchange with your Sim.
Child-Elder Sims can all exchange bracelets between each other. The Sims do not have to be the same age.
Wearing a Sims 4Friendship Bracelet
When you exchange friendship bracelets with another Sim in The Sims 4 Growing Together, you will have the exchanged bracelet in your Sim’s inventory and it will show up on your Sim’s wrist. You cannot remove or destroy an exchanged bracelet; that would be unforgivable! You must wait for the bracelet to fall off on its own over time.
Of course, if you really don’t want the bracelet anymore, you can go to the Sim you exchanged bracelets with and demand your Sims 4 friendship bracelet back. This is a Mean interaction, under the Malicious sub-category. This interaction removes the friendship bracelet from both Sims but it also damages the relationship and causes a Hurt sentiment. Also, this interaction destroys both bracelets in the inventory so they can’t be exchanged with someone else.
