Sorry if this has been answered already but I couldn't find any info on it...

If a child sim has an imaginary friend, but then they die and are later added to the household through the Oh My Ghost! opportunity, does the ghost of the child still have the imaginary friend?

When a sim dies all of the belongings in their inventory goes to another household member's inventory. I guess if that member gifted the imaginary friend back, the child would still have an imaginary friend.

I got this! I think I figure out why some dolls won't turn! You baby sim has to play with it, but not just play once till you get the first pop-up. Keep on playing with your doll 'till the second pop-up. Don't stop there, it says something like "(Doll's Name) has become a very speacial thing for (Baby's name.) I wonder what happens if you keep playing with it?" After that play with the toy more. And after, you should see another pop up, now when your baby age up it should too! I hope this works after all it's just an idea.  ;)

I just discovered that the ability 'Turn Into Toy Form' is hereditary! One of my Sims in the last generation married his invisible friend, and their son just aged up to child.  When I clicked on the son, I got a 'Turn Into Toy Form' option.

I think that's correct because a sim toddler of mine, didn't interact with her little friend at all. It didn't age up at all. But another experience, was after my child sim played with her friend for a little bit, it aged up! I've never gotten the option to age up an imaginary friend, it just happens by itself!

My experience with IFs seems to be entirely random. I've had babies not get a doll although most do. I have them all play with the doll the same amount of time. When the toddlers aren't sleeping, learning or eating they are playing with the doll. The kids play with the doll all the time too. Out of 10 dolls so far I've had 2 not change. Sometimes I get messages about the dolls, sometimes I don't and I get different messages. Most of the time the IF turns into the opposite sex of the child. Two have been the same sex.

I had two Babies born into my Dynasty and only One got an IF. His name is Pingu and he is White.  :D They are the most awesome things! The Toddler stuff is so adorable as well!



I even had my Sim Paint one of his Grandchild Singing to his IF, if only this was allowed for the Toddler Portait! Lol.  :D



I almost think I will prefer them when they are Dolls!

The One who got the Doll was Born at 9pm at Home to my Dynasty heir. His Cousin was born at 5am the next day. At 9am only one Doll came from the Distant Aunt for the First Born.

My first child got the doll, but her sister born a five days later didn't. At the library, Sebastien Striker was looking at the IF like he wanted to steal it. Guess townies don't get them.

I find it hilarious that the father doesn't like her speaking about the IF; but, he waits at the door tapping his feet if the IF is going through the door. The mother likes talking to her about the IF, and gave her the potion for turning it. Perhaps since the mother knew about the potion she was more likely to believe her daughter?

Haha, that same happens to my family but the other way. The mother doesn't believe and the dad does.

Did the dad know how to make the potion? Curious if that makes a difference.

It also seems that the IF gets a compatible Zodiac sign. Because for my sim her IF is compatible which will help in the Romance department.

So, the parent who can make the potion, knows the kid isn't crazy!

It's funny when the parent doesn't believe the kid. So, I had her boob trap the sink for her father. He yelled at her, and her IF cleaned up the mess.

For some strange reason, I think my sim's IF is her slave. She leaves her dishes around, the IF cleans it up, she didn't make her bed, wets her pants (litteraly, it's extremely funny), and never helps clean ANYTHING. Her Imaginary Friend does everything for her- I'm amazed it doesn't pass out from exhaustion.  :D

I found when they become real that they have a full energy level regardless of the time of day, so they don't get tired until they are real. I think my sim inherited perfectionist because she's always cleaning up after herself; while the IF wants to play.

I'm still at a loss... Is the imaginary friend invisible when it is out of the inventory when the kids play with it, i.e. until it turns "real" ? Thanks!

The If looks like a doll out of the inventory unless their sim friend is in the house.

My first sim to have an imaginary friend got along with the imaginary friend wonderfully. They had/have a lot of fun together playing games. When this sim became a teen, the imaginary friend even helped clean up around the house on it's own. They are grown up now, and she turned the imaginary friend real. They have a band together called "Imaginary Friends,"of course. They play neo-under-kids-gothic-pop.  ;D

However, the above sim's sister has an awful imaginary friend. She has the observant trait and noticed that the imaginary friend has the hot tempered and mean traits. The imaginary friend kept insulting, arguing, and generally making this sim feel bad every moment it could. It even booby trapped things around the house. They dislike each other, so the imaginary friend pretty much stays in an inactive doll form. She has the evil trait, so she may end up sticking it in a closet with a lit firework. She tried to leave it "mysterious drinks," but the imaginary friend always avoided them. I doubt she will spend the simoleons to make it real.

@Laurencius: I agree if the IF is that bad, I'd move them out and put them with a family I detest.
