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.
I had originally planned on converting the Sir Bricks-a-Lot craftable from OFB back when I did my big toy set. However, I had run into a few obstacles that prevented me from doing it how I wanted and ultimately scrapped it since it didn't quite fit the traditional toy theme.

So now, many months later, I've decided to invest the time to do it right and add a fun "pet rock" version, "Sir Rocks-a-Lot." The meshes, of course, are EA's, one being a direct conversion of Sir Bricks-a-Lot, and the other adapted from a rock mesh from BV. The textures, however, have been recreated from scratch, since I wanted to keep the opacity of the face overlays, and there was no way of isolating them from the surrounding texture without sacrificing quality.

Each toy is interactive (can be played with and placed in the toy box), completely recolorable (with one channel), and comes in four different varieties, as shown below (all presets are represented).




"Sir Bricks-a-Lot" and "Sir Rocks-a-Lot" can be found in the catalog under function sort: kids/toys and room sort: kids' room/toys at a price of §5 each.

Thanks for downloading!
