The Sims 4 Playful Emotion
How to Make Your Sims Very Playful
It's very easy for Sims who are Childish to get Very Playful (by playing with Toys), as well as Goofballs (random Moodlets for Playful). This is one of few positive Emotions that have more than just two stages - you can go beyond Very Playful all the way to Hysterics. Sims that go into hysterics can die from laughter when they hear a joke, so do Calm Self Down by using a Mirror if necessary to save your Sim's life! Dying from laughter is pretty funny though.
