"and YAs who have IFs usually are not considered mentally healthy you know?"
That's why I bury them in the sand box when my sims' are a child. (I don't have the latest patch)

Can you sell that sand box afterwards? I didn't know you could bury them actually. I normally place them in the children room actually. They disapear when the sims died on old age though. No idea where they are left.

I think you were able to bury the doll and sell the sandbox, but now, with patch 1.24, it's useless because we can't bury the dolls in the sandbox anymore. :(

Wow you guys are so brutal to your Imaginary Friends. I called mine the Sheenius. He's named after Charlie Sheen and he's a party animal. I love how they walk too. I love the IF's. I am waiting to make him real very soon.

Is it me or are you obsessed with Charlie Sheen, Jeana? :P

Just a little more information about my Imaginary Friends.  I had put them back in inventory during child because they interfered with the children too much.  The kids then went to boarding school and didn't come back home until they were teenagers.  They had both lost relationship status with their IFs, one much more than the other.  They no longer had any interaction with the dolls except to talk through them if a toddler was around.  I pulled the two dolls out of inventory and put them on the floor of the twins' room.  The next morning, the dolls changed to child IFs and immediately had a birthday to age up to teen.  It doesn't seem to matter one bit if the relationship deteriorates.  They'll still morph into an IF.

I guess it depends on the trait of the child itself and the (hidden) trait of the IF to know whether they will be bugging the child or not.  The child and the IF I wanted to make real had a low relationship, despite it being out of the inventory. The child didn't keep on playing with the toy as a toddler and as a schoolchild, hence the relationship did not develop. Now because I wanted to make the toy real, I had to keep on prompting the child to play with the IF for days, it took a really long while. Neither was the IF in its non-toy form bothering the child so much, it was just following her, but not bugging her to play or chat like some do.  As it turned out, the IF had the evil, klepto, ambitious trait.  The child was family oriented so she wanted to talk and relate more to her family members than to the IF. Now that the IF has turned real through the potion, they are still the best of friends , but they do their own activities. My experience, so far with IF.  :)

The strangest thing has been happening.
The IF of one of my teenage boys have been standing outside the house in her human form, even though her doll form is still in his inventory. Interestingly enough, she's always near the spot where the rainbow gem is sometimes found.

It's funny yet kind of creepy.

At first I thought it was some random sim, but when I put my mouse over her, I saw it was the name I have given her, along with the family name.

Have this happened to any of you?  This has happened twice now.  ???

When I can, I will post pictures.

Yes, the same thing happened to me! What was funny was when I had two children with IF's in the house, and the figure standing in the corner of the lot would change depending on what sim I had selected in the household.

Yes, it happens to me when I have an IF that has turned into an IF, than the kid leaves the lot and I stick the doll in their inventory and don't take it out as soon as the kid gets home. As soon as I take the doll out, it transforms back into an IF and the human form disappears until next time. I'll try to get a video of it if I remember.

Funny, but I don't remember it taking that long to change. He had a far better looking outfit after the change, than the IF I had.

I wondered if it was supposed to take that long to change.  I guess my game got stuck during the transition.

I recently changed my triplets IFs to real and all three took about as long as yours did in the video.

The one I did took long enough that I was beginning to suspect it was stuck.

The Crumplebottom girls both got thiers. I left them in the mailbox until I came across a way to delete the evil things for good. Simply use testingcheatsenabled true, click on the doll, you will get an object menu then click delete it Not sure if anyone has brought this up but it definately works. The girls are now doll free ;D

I didn't know that imaginary friends was considered the occult. After my daughter made her imaginary friend real they got together and afterwards she got accused of WooHooing with the occult.  :(

Yeah, I think anything other than plain sims are considered occult. I don't consider any of them occult, but the game does.  ::)

So, I decided to have my Bridgeport family move to Sunset Valley. The only child in the family, Isabella, is still a toddler and will transition within 3 sim days, and she wasn't CAS created.

So once they moved to Sunset Valley, I did some checking around the house to see if I got everything situated, since I added a few more rooms to an already created house that came with the Generations EP. I look up and see one of the notifications talking about Isa and her IF, Pal. I zoomed in on her, and surprisingly enough she was playing with a freaking IF doll.

When she was in Bridgeport, she never had one, and I did play this family briefly after I added Generations. She's the only pre-generations baby with an IF. All the others never gotten one.

All the kids that have gotten an IF in my game post Generations, gotten them as a newborn.

Then I remember moving in one of the pre-made sim families, who also had a toddler, to Sunset Valley awhile back. When I made this family active, I find out that this child had an IF. I thought it was strange and didn't think much of it.  So I wonder, if a family that has been newly moved into a neighborhood, who has a baby or toddler in the family, will the child in question automatically get an IF?  Or if it's just a random occurence?
