It is the youngest life stage that can be created in Create-A-Sim. The manual suggests this isn’t possible, but it actually is. When a baby turns into a toddler, most of its genetic traits become visible for the first time. Its personality and interests are visible, and it is controllable. Toddlers require the most attention of any life stage given their lack of independence.
Children can play with toddlers who are using skill toys that have the “Play With” interaction. Toddlers do not have the comfort or environment motives. Toddlers lose energy more quickly than older Sims do, but also replenish it more quickly, especially if they sleep in a crib. In general, they will need to sleep two or three times a day, depending on how tired the player lets them get. Toddlers can gain hygiene by being bathed in a bathtub, although they can no longer be bathed in sinks. If a bathtub is available, older Sims will frequently respond to even a small drop in a toddler’s Hygiene bar by autonomously bathing the toddler.
Toddlers can also gain hygiene by having their diapers changed, preferably at a changing table. A toddler given a bottle can hold it, and a toddler can pick up a bottle that is on the floor and drink from it. If the Pets expansion pack is installed, a hungry toddler can eat pet food from a pet bowl, and may do so autonomously. Toddlers can have different sets of everyday clothes, pajamas, and Seasons outerwear, if a teen, adult, or elder household member buys some for them. However, separate tops and bottoms for everyday wear are not available for toddlers. Changing toddlers’ clothes and planning their outfits is done by taking them to the changing table.
Toddlers can be taught three core skills: walking, talking, and potty training. Once potty trained, a toddler will be able to use the potty chair independently. Toddlers’ wants usually revolve around getting attention from family members or friends, learning the three basic toddler skills, or gaining skill points. Except for wants related to learning skills, these are usually low in value, though low-value wants are still significant on the scale of a toddler’s aspiration bar. Like babies, toddlers can be removed by a social worker if certain motives are allowed to drop critically low, or if they become too hot or too cold. Other than that, as of Apartment Life, there is no other way to take them off the lot without cheats. After four days, toddlers become children.
