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.

Nursery Add-Ons II

This is basically three uploads combined into one: Haffa Crib recolors, Free Time nursery accessory recolors and a new rocking chair converted from the Sims 3 to match. I've been meaning to do some recolors for the Haffa Crib nursery for awhile now and since I adore the shape of the classic rocking chair from the Sims 3 Supernatural expansion pack I thought I'd combine them into one upload.

Haffa Crib Recolors:
  • Cherry
  • Medium Wood
The Haffa Crib is the master to this nursery so the crib recolors work for all the pieces pictured: the crib, changing table, baby dangle, bouncy chair and activity table. I did not include the meshes with the recolors so if you don't have the nursery, and want it of course, you need to follow the link for the meshes.

Free Time Recolors:
  • High Society High Chair
  • Lil' Angel Potty Chair
  • Container Fun Toybox
I use these pieces with the Haffa Crib nursery so I included the medium and cherry recolors so everything still matches.

Relax-O-Rocker:
  • Base Game Compatible
  • Pets Version Available
  • Snooze
  • Cushion is slaved to the crib bedding which means any crib recolors you have will work for the rocker too.

The rocking chair is not a true conversion in that I simplified the original textures and I added the cushion so the rocking chair would be even more matchy-matchy. Since I usually use recliners in my nurseries for the nap function I wanted something similar for the rocking chair otherwise I wouldn't use it. The best I could come up with is the option to snooze which lasts about an hour and restores about the same amount of energy as a cup of coffee without the bladder decay. It's not quite a nap but I'm happy with it.

Catalog Description:
It's nice that recliners can go back, but aren't you tired of chairs that only go halfway? The Relax-O-Rocker with TruSway technology can go back AND forth! Now that's a chair with a full range of motion! Nothing soothes the soul like a gentle sway in a Relax-O-Rocker. You'll lose hours to the comfort and rhythm. It's like sitting - only better!

Catalog Sort:
General/Child $400

A little unusual considering it's a chair but I made it to be used with the baby furniture so that's where you'll find it. It's convenient for me like that so I hope no one finds it too annoying.

Terms of Use:
As always, you're free to use anything of mine however you'd like. And if anyone is interested in the original EA textures that came with the rocker let me know and I'll be happy to upload them somewhere.
