Scolding and Praising

  • To shape your little people's behaviors you need to use the scolding and the praising gloves found in the upper left corner of your screen.
  • The green is for praising and the red is for scolding.
  • Tap the glove you want to use and then tap on the person you would like to use it on.
  • Use the scolding glove sparingly as it can lead to depression.

  • This will show you everything you need to know about your little person. 


Work Areas 

  • There are certain parts of the house that are work areas for your little people - the kitchen, the workroom, and the office. The career choice will decide what area the person works in.
  • Office related jobs will work on the computers.
  • Anything cooking related will work in the kitchen, and anything needing tools will work in the work room.
  • Simply drop your character in one of these areas to send them to work.

Making Babies


  • Once your little person has been married, you can start on a family at any time.

  • If they're in the mood and ready to have children, they will attempt to make a baby.
  • If they are successful, you'll soon have a new addition to the family in mom's arms.
