This latest expansion is not a game changer like some of the previous ones. It’s more of a gap filler. See, when I play the Sims I hardly ever play as kids. They simply need to do their homework and go to school until their birthdays. This is then followed by adulthood where the real fun begins. But Generations sets out to fill this gap to becoming a grownup with all the fun we remember from our childhood. This one is for the kids!
Kids can now focus on their imagination with new items that will enhance this growing phase of their lives. Toy boxes allow them to dress up and hopscotch pads let them stay active outside. You can also send them to boarding school (something my kids will certainly experience!) to enhance their education and get the creative juices flowing. Some kids even develop imaginary friends!
