The Activity Table is a toy for toddlers and children included in The Sims 2: FreeTime and The Sims 3. Up to four Sims can play with it, provided they all have room to get to it. A similar play table is included in The Sims 4: Parenthood, which can be used by Sims aged child and up.
The Sims 2: FreeTimeEdit
Teeny Tikes Activity TableEdit
Toddlers and children can play with blocks, which builds Mechanical skill and Tinkering enthusiasm; or they can draw, which builds Creativity skill and Arts and Crafts enthusiasm. However, they will not be able to draw if all accessible drawing pads have completed drawings. Children and older Sims can clean the table up, which will put the blocks away and clear the drawing pads, or can scrap individual drawings. This adds a small amount of Cleaning skill, but often reduces Fun. In Buy or Build mode, the drawings can be picked up with the Hand tool, and can be hung on the wall.
Toddlers can build relationships with one another by playing together at the table, but this will be slow unless they have learned to talk.
The activity table included with FreeTime is not recolorable, but a recolorable replacement for it, along with some recolors, can be found at Mod The Sims.
The Sims 3Edit
Genesis Building BlocksEdit
The Genesis Building Blocks is similar to the Teeny Tykes Activity Table, looks much like it, and also costs §200. However, it only allows toddlers and children to play with blocks. Children can build the Blocks secret skill by playing with it. When they grow up into teenagers, the Blocks secret skill will transfer into Handiness skill. The Blocks secret skill goes up to level 3.
The Sims 4: ParenthoodEdit
Buildems Blocks Play TableEdit
In The Sims 4: Parenthood, the Buildems Blocks Play Table is a family activity with a fun score of 6. Playing with blocks builds the motor skill for children and the logic skill for older Sims. Even though it is categorized as a children's toy, older Sims can play with it without any children present.
The object's in-game description says that it can only be used by toddlers (and that it builds their imagination skill), but toddlers are unable to use it.
