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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Already done it in child and adult, so here's the toddler version. Idn't it cuuuute? Pretty much the same as the child version, using the same textures and shoes and all that stuff.

Compatability (MUST READ!): This mesh does NOT require Glamour Life Stuff (couldn't have made it require it if I'd wanted to due to how custom body meshes work). There are 4th bone assignments still in the mesh meaning it may display strangely for people without Nightlife or later EPs. Based on the info given by base game testers for the adult version (which also has 4th bone assignments) I'm marking this as base-game compatible. Please let me know what EPs you have, if any, if you have any issues.

Updated! I slightly tweaked the uv map on the top and one little area on the skirt. It wasn't heavily distorted at all, but it will now be easier to get a nice patterned recolour going on it. Please redownload the mesh. It has the same filename so it will overwrite the old one if you put it in the same directory and choose "Yes" when you're asked if you want to replace it.

2037 polys, 1551 vertices.

There is an imperfection on the underside of the mesh, where the skirt meets the knees - you'll sometimes see the floor through it as it doesn't fit quite close enough. Yes, I could have fixed this, but the only time you'll ever see it is when she's sitting on the floor, and her hands will probably be clipping through the skirt at that point anyway - I figured why fiddle with it when it looks bad from that angle to begin with?

This mesh really looks best if the toddler is being carried or is walking/standing. Toddlers still crawling and sitting on the floor will clip through the skirt - this is unavoidable if I wanted to keep the shape of the skirt nice and full. If this bothers you, well, go download something else... but it is awfully cute when they stand up, and would make for some fun pics.

The three recolours pictured are included (Maxis originals). Available for everyday. Make sure you grab both the mesh and recolours or it won't work!
