This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
A gift for Alawren.

FreeTime nursery furniture, Magical Mystery's Shape, Rattle & Roll, Rip Co. Xylophone, Honeywell's Giddy-Up Rocker and atssandy's Tropezienne Nursery Little Piano in AL Wood, MALM also Seasons MedOak and Pine colours.

I also did partially invisible recolours of the Lil' Jailbird Canopy Crib, Wonderland Sleigh Crib, Good Times Changing Table and Baby's Touch Bed, leaving only the the Fabric visible. Using "moveObjects ON" you just have to place the Fabric colour you want over the object, changing the colour is as easy as that. I also made Bedding to match.

Minor Problem: I could not think of a way around it, when changing the colour of the canopy on the Baby's Touch Bed two sets of bedding will show up on the bed, it is best to change the colour of both sets of bedding to match. (see screen shots above)

The MESHES for the Giddy-Up Rocker and the Little Piano are not included, you can get the Giddy-Up Rocker by Honeywell HERE and the Tropezienne Nursery Little Piano by Sandy HERE.

These are not all base game compatible - FreeTime is required for the Nursery Furniture.
