Voodoo Doll - Premium Item Coming Soon
« on: December 06, 2011, 04:40:01 PM »
I found this little blurb on the News on the official Sims 3 website.

Quote
The Voodoo Doll is coming back to The Sims 3 and we need your help naming it! This is your chance to be a part of the process and help us name a new item coming to The Sims 3 Store.  Click now to get a sneak peek at the Voodoo doll’s makeover as a part of The Sims 3 Store Holiday Countdown Event!

And from the Facebook Holiday Countdown Event page:



Could be interesting for those who purchase store content.

Has anyone ever used the voodoo doll?  Since the statement indicates it's coming back, was it a TS3 item or it is something from one of the earlier Sims games?

I tried clicking on the link but it's not working.  Could you have a look at it again please?

Thank you for letting me know, Sassy.  I fixed it so it should work for you now.

I think I'm more excited about the Voodoo doll and the cow plant than I am about Showtime.

What does the voodoo doll do? Honestly I don't like the look because. . .several things. But what does it do?

The Voodoo doll was a special item you could earn by helping out the witch doctor in The Sims 2: Bon Voyage. You could use it to affect the motives or relationships of other Sims. Here's the Sims Wiki page, and here's a picture:

Think Moodlet Manager, that's what it is really although with different options. You could make sims pee themselves but it always backfired on my sims..

They're really getting into the premium content stuff, first voodoo doll and cowplant and then the climbing wall.  It all sounds good to me. ;D

Wow. Another Sims 2 item for Sims 3. What's next, the bigfoot? Could be - very nice. They [EA] really don't look like they're going to slow down with this, the way things are going.
Never likes Big foot. He stunk and had no interest for me.

I'm sure my toddlers would love to sleep with this newly added doll... :P
It can be found under kids toys I assume?

(I know what you all are thinking right now: Leto, you better not get children yourself ever! :D)

My friend bought a real Vodoo doll in Africa and whenever my boss made me mad; I'd go to her office and ask to use it! nothing ever happened; but the sims are not real life.

I will make a note to myself to be forever friendly to everyone who have the nickname MoMoll from this moment.
Just to be sure...

Hey, you have nothing to worry about. But I also have a real cristal ball that I use only on Halloween when I do seances to contact the dead.
In University I studied "Alternative Medicines" which included WitchDoctors; Vodoo; Cannabalism; etc. These wee the ancient ways of curing disease. But; they can be used in other ways. Fascinating! Isn't it?

I don't remember getting a doll after helping the witch doctor in the Sims 2.  Maybe it's time I played again.  I loved that cowplant.  I hope they make some llamas for the game soon.

Fascinating in a historical way maybe. But it's stupid and obsolete when people still really believe in those things, the same counts for related affairs such as superstitious, destiny and fate conspiricies. Recently in Holland a guy died because of some 'alternative' medicines some witch lady had given him. She got prosecuted now.
Voodoo dolls in the sims 3 however can provide a lot of fun. :)

Exactly, in a historical and cultural way. I had a patient who came into the hospital with garlic strung around her neck. The family (newly arrived immigrants) said she was acting weird, so they put the garlic around her neck. So, I sent off a toxicology blood test and we found she had high levels of opium. Having taken a minor degree in anthropology, I was suspicious of how their cultural beliefs played into their way of life.
I used the cristal ball to scare my children's friends on Halloween. I had my husband answering questions from another room during the seances.
