This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Little Hal the Servo was created for one of Garden of Shadows' monthly themes. With GoS being offline, though, I wanted to upload him to another place, so the sim children wouldn't be deprived of their beloved propaganda... I mean, educational toy.

Hal is made of child-friendly cotton, non-toxic rubber and paint, and wood. He contains no sharp or small enough to swallow elements - and has, in fact, a lower polycount than the basegame teddy bear!

There's some animation boo-boos, the biggest being this one:

I couldn't figure out how to fix this, unfortunately. It's visible only for a moment during the "whack against floor" animation. Other than that, children will hold him by a non-existent foot, and chew on non-existent ears, and their hands go through the eye sometimes. Those were all unavoidable, though.

The object was modeled, mapped, textured, and joint-assigned by me, so if you'd like to reuse mesh parts or alter them (making him a deco object, making him bigger, so on), credit would be much appreciated.
It's basegame-friendly, can be found in Miscellaneous> Children, and costs 60$. It has no recolorable subsets.

Polygon Counts:
1292 polys
3876 vertices

Additional Credits:
CG Textures for the fabric and wood overlays
Lilith-sims for skin default, Simgaroop for hair
