My first experience with this thing isn't great. Only because I haven't had one. My kid's been active probably 30-40 Sim days, so it looks like I'm not getting one. So, they don't all get them, especially those made in Create a Sim.

Yeah I looked in buy mode and in the buydebug cheat and they are not there, at least that I seen. Mine was in the inventory of the newborn baby. So that is just unfair. Looks like your going to have to go "try for baby". :D

That's awful Carl. I made a couple with 2 toddlers and when they moved into their lot, both the kids had one in their inventory! The thing I find weird is it says it grows with the kid. Well, I got the pop-up that they had a birthday coming up, so I went ahead and aged them both with a cake. That was a whole day ago and the dolls are still in doll form. I even had them play and sing to it from the minute they were made! I got a pop-up saying they would be good friends blah blah, but it still hasn't grown!!

That is not cool! Maybe there is like a certain amount of time needed to be spent with them? I still have a baby so I have yet to even start the bonding process. I will be up most of the night so I will fill you in. Maybe you aged them up too soon? Were they children when you aged them up?

You're welcome Carl! I made them in CAS and they spent every second playing and singing to it, besides the time taken to teach them their skills. So they spent at least 5 days straight singing and playing with it. Then I got the pop-up saying it was going to be their birthdays soon, so I bought 2 cakes and used them. They are now children, but the dolls are still just dolls.  :( I have the kids playing in the sandbox right now, hoping their dolls will turn soon. Wait, maybe if I take them out of the inventory? I'll be back!

EDIT: After less than 3 minutes on the ground, they turned!!  ;D So I guess it doesn't work in inventory!

Good news. If you absolutely want one, you don't have to keep re-creating the family or anything. It's decided whether they get the doll when they move in. Little Cindy has a doll on try #3. I imagine it's 50/50, with two options. So that's going in the article :P

Haha my kids just went to school, and the imaginary friends turned back into dolls on the ground! That's awesome! Those are cute pics Barbie! I wanted to share a pic! This is Easter talking to her IF in the princess and pauper tree house!



I'm editing this to add a pic. The kids got out of school and as soon as they got home, the dolls disappeared. Funny stuff! Plus, here is a close up of an imaginary friend! Her name is Alice!

My newborn baby got one in the mail the morning after she was born. The mom went to pick up the mail and the toy appeared in the baby's inventory. There was a pop-up saying it was a gift from grandma's second cousin Bertha or something similar.

That is so amazing! So do you think my Violet (who is already a child) will get that? :-\ One more question regarding Imaginary Friends: do they speak in normal voice?

Chronic, I'm not sure if Violet will get one. As for them talking, I took a video of Easter and her IF Buddy having a conversation. I think they sound normal. At least it's not all metallic! I know I said on the tree house pic it was Esther, but I mistyped. I'll go edit it. The mom is Esther, this is Easter!  ;D

Thanks for sharing, Esther! Maybe it's only me, but I think their voice is a bit "dollish". Don't know how to describe otherwise, sorry. Do they have any special interactions?
As you said the other day - Easter, Ester, Esther - it's all the same! ;D

You're welcome! I guess so but I've never heard dolls talk before!  :P When you click on them, you get the normal interactions, then you also have "get me a snack" "clean up for me" and "leave me alone". And yeah it's all the same lol. Oh and there is an offer to make real! But you must have that potion in their inventory. Another funny thing is Easter was trying to do her homework, and Buddy kept interrupting, so I teleported away from him into a locked room, and he teleported as well! Hilarious!!

I meant that's what I heard in cartoons. Lol. :P
That's funny! I guess there was a reason they put the "Leave me alone" interaction.

@ Barbie - I am really sorry. Do you have an earlier save?

Nope I just started over. It was no big deal that family was made just to test out generations anyway. I will try less interactions this time. It was weird because it showed the moodlet that she was still cuddling with it. So yeah I am confused. At least my testing gave me an awesome idea for my new immortal dynasty.

It's ok chronic like I said it was just a testing file. I will just start over. Thank you both.  :)

My toddler Was playing with her doll and now it disappeared!

The new baby in my family got a doll in the mail and I put it in the crib with him. Last night when he aged up to toddler the doll disappeared.  No one else had it in their inventory and it wasn't in the house.  Today I found it out on the lawn, just sitting there. I put it in the child's inventory and when he aged to child he started playing with it and he took it upon himself to name it Cuddles.

The dolls move and change position a lot like gnomes do.  So there is a chance it was playing hide and seek with you, Barbie.

My kids just turned into teenagers, and I was looking for the IF's and found them in their inventories.  ::) So I put them on the ground again and they instantly started having a birthday and turned teens, so yeah I can now confirm they age up with the child.

My DD heiress became a teen last night and her doll also aged with her.  If you leave the doll on the floor starting as a child, not keep it in their inventory, it ages with the child immediately.  Of course, keeping it in inventory keeps it from stalking the child around the house when the child has assigned tasks to perform.

As for the opportunity to make the doll real, my child received the opportunity and the first task is to bring a rainbow gem to the science lab.  So her parents have been mining pretty much non-stop to try to get one.  She still has the opportunity even after she aged to teen so hoping she can get it completed before she becomes a young adult.  The opportunity is called "When Dreams Come True".  Not sure if it is a chain like the SimBot one or a one-off like the Oh My Ghost one.
