EA and Maxis launch Shop The Sims (dot) com!
After what has felt like an eternity, The Sims finally has an official merchandise store!
First teased on November 14th, 2023, curiosity began to rise within the community as to what we could potentially see in this brand-new store.
Now, this isn’t the first time we’ve had to shop for The Sims merchandise. Previously, there was a Threadless store where the community could buy selected merchandise themed around the game. However, this was closed some time ago and there has been a void left in its place until now.

Thoughts on Shop The Sims
Shop The Sims has launched with a good starting collection! While prices seem reasonable for the most part, many will be hoping to see more collections and more variation of products going forward. This is just the start of something that could be amazing for getting official The Sims merchandise out there in the wider world!
Imagine all the possibilities of The Sims-themed products they could create! From more apparel, collectables and accessories to maybe branching out more into homewares and technology accessories? How about accessories for our cats, dogs and horses? Christmas jumpers? Maybe even officially licensed accessories for our setups similar to what we’ve seen in the past? Collaborations with brands or content creators! The possibilities for Shop The Sims are endless!
