I actually managed to start an IF family/breeding program [LOL].
I'll post the family here if you guys want, right now its just the parents [who by pure coincidence, look exactly the same as IFs] and their daughter [Who is a toddler right now].

I've just turned two IFs into real Sims for the first time.  Both had the purple hair and bright blue eyes.  They both fathered children with normal Sims and neither of the kids had any of the IF's features.  I was disappointed by that.

My first imaginary friend made real had blue hair and weird clothes, but no voice! He got it once he aged up to a teen though...

One of my IFs just had triplets - one has her father's hair (DeAndre Wolfe), one has her mother's hair (purple) and one a random mousey colour. I think they all have her very dark eyes, but I need to check in on her 'sister' IF that I moved out as she had gorgeous turquoise eyes that she might have passed on to her son.

I know adopted babies and toddlers will immediately receive an IF, but will adopted children also receive one in the mail?


I tend to have loud opinions. So sorry. I got tons of issues, lol. I can also be found on Yahoo! Answers.

My IF had no voice either.  She just aged up to a teen and still has no voice.  If that continues to happen, might just put her in the bin, that is just weird, lol. :)

I have had sims adopt a lot of kids at child age as I don't always have the patience for babies and toddlers, and I've never received an IF for any of those.

I have a family with 3 children.  The first born never got an IF.  Then the twins came along & they both got IF's in the mail.  Also my first born was a toddler when the twins came home, but when they aged up to toddlers my first born was forced to wait for her birthday until the twins aged up (all aged at the same time).  Very busy with 3 toddlers for a long time.  I feel my first born was ripped off, in age, but especially in not getting an IF.  Is there any way I can get one for her.  They are all children now going to school.

As far as know there is now way to get the doll if you don't get it in the post.

I've read somewhere that there's a 50/50 chance of getting one, but so far I've always gotten one.

Why don't you ask on the mod board. Sounds like that's a place to look for information.

Sometimes you get them, sometimes you don't. I've turned so many real, only to despise them after they became teens. Most of mine had rotten traits. Also, I'm not a big fan of purple hair, etc.

I've never used mods and don't know anything about them.  Not to trusting outside the game components.  These are the first IF's I've had and don't know what to expect.  Thanks for the headsup.  I'm not a fan of the negative traits or purple hair either.  Sounds like I'll have keep an eye on them.  Hopefully if they get unruly, I can put them in the shared family bin.  Don't want my kids picking up their bad habits.  Maybe my first born is the lucky one afterall.

Not sure if this has been asked or not, but does a phone know how to locate a missing IF? My sim's got taken while she was doing time in jail and I haven't seen it since. Although she does pop up as a stationary sim every once and a while. (I'm using Twallen's Master Controller and Overwatch.) anyone know how to find her?

My sim just got the wish "Become an Imaginary Friend". I can't seem to find anything about this. Does anyone know how this is done?

There might be a potion from the Alchemy skill that can turn your Sim into an IF.  :)

If there is, the game is hiding it really well.

I checked the guide and there isn't a potion for it - not an alchemy one anyway. It seems you can turn IFs into sims but not the other way around. The other thing I can think of requires cheats, if you edit in CAS then the IF option should be there under the supernatural type box.
Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.

That's why I'm so confused. How do you get a wish for it if you can't actually do it in the game without cheats?

does the sim have any chance of having IF genetics (father/mother/grandfather/grandmother for example) the IF trait can be passed down and maybe the child can turn into one thanks to genetics.

So... I was playing my sims the other night on an old file, and there's a light blue haired child sim that has an IF on there. I aged up the two babies in the file and I noticed a random darker skinned, blonde male child wandering around. When I moused over him, it said it was Kahlina's (the child sim) IF! The doll was still in Kahlina's inventory and everything. Once I caked Kahlina up to teen, I forced the IF to age up too, so that I could have Kahlina work on the potion on the chemistry set. That way, they'd be the same age once I turned him real. Anywais, when I did turn him real, he looked nothing like the blonde child/teen he showed as earlier.

Nope. She's only the second generation of completely normal parents I created. Maybe it's a weird glitch. The description says "Your Sim wants to become supernatural." She is a Supernatural Fan, so maybe that wish will just pop up with every Supernatural she meets, even if she can't actually turn in into that Supernatural.
