Mom Landgraab is a Sim character featured in The Sims Bustin' Out and The Sims console games and lives in SimValley. The player starts their Sim's life with her in either Bust Out Mode in The Sims Bustin' Out or in Live mode in The Sims.

The Sims (console) Edit

In the console versions of The Sims, Mom is featured as an elderly woman living along with her child (the player's Sim) in her home, and her snoring can get quite annoying. Unlike in The Sims Bustin' Out, Mom is playable in The Sims. Apparently, once the player wakes up from sleeping on the country class sofa, Mom has strict expectations for them and will constantly nag. If you tell Mom to do any sort of house work (including cooking, cleaning, repairing, etc.), she will refuse to do it, thus placing the burden on the player's Sim. ("I'm not a maid, {Sim's name}!") The only 2 ways to keep the house clean from Mom's unsupported messes is to keep a "Meet Major Dormo" in the backyard, or have a chance for Mom to be abducted by aliens with the Horrorwitz "Star-Track" Backyard Telescope. After the abduction, a neater personality should replace her original one. However, it is nearly impossible to get abducted in story mode. Mom can sometimes be made to cook after completing the 'Cook Dinner' goal by replacing the fridge and stove, which don't have to be the same model as the originals. Mom also has 4 cooking skill points, this is most likely to stop her from causing a fire if she or the player makes her cook.

The player can move out of Mom's home, after they have warmed Mom up to them and "borrowed" §800 from her. They can then move into Mimi Landgraab's house or Dudley Landgraab's trailer (depending on the player Sim's gender). There, the player's sim is expected to clean up all the mess and buy improvements for their home. Mom periodically visits the player Sim, but can be very cruel to them by insulting, slapping and teasing them. Rarely, she'll bring some flowers in a vase for your Sim. However, clicking on them will result in the option "clean up."

Mom will get married at the end of the fifth level to Malcolm Landgraab and leave his mansion to the player since they have the biggest family (two children and a spouse).

She is interested in Music, Outdoors, and Money.

The Sims Bustin' OutEdit

In The Sims Bustin' Out, Mom is featured as an older, or at least appears to be, woman. She wears a green facial mask, along with a pink bathrobe and pink bunny slippers. She is the mother of the player character, and either the mother or the former stepmother of Mimi and Dudley Landgraab. Through her various complaints, we also see that Mom is the ex-wife of the infamous Malcolm Landgraab; it's unknown if she is the mother of his children.  She lives in a quaint country home, surrounded by farms. Unlike her predecessor, Mom, while still a bit of a nag, is a lot nicer and kind to the player's Sim. Mom will look after your Sim, but when it comes to jobs around the house she can be a slacker. She is also well known for emptying her bladder in the kitchen.

When the player first begins to play, the Sim is in a nightclub setting and must kiss either Peter Tutti or Candi Frutti (depending on the player's Sim's gender). Mom then pops up out of what seems to be thin air and tells the player's Sim to stop daydreaming and lectures the player's Sim because Malcolm is stealing their motor-scooter. The player is then pulled back into reality and the setting changes to the front of Mom's house, where the Player's Sim was daydreaming. At Mom's, they must complete a set of five pre-decided goals, including Find a Job. Until the Sim uses the newspaper to do this, Mom will nag them repeatedly. Her nags can be ignored and the player can remain living in her home, but that is up to the player to decide. This is a great level to raise some skills before trying a career. Living in Mom's House at any point in the game will freeze the Sim's work schedule and stop all relationship decay. Many motives will also freeze or slow, and should the player deplete all of their money, a seemingly random phone call will supply more.

The Urbz: Sims in the CityEdit

Though Mom does not appear in The Urbz (the only first generation console game in which this is the case), she is mentioned near the beginning of the game. The Urbz takes place after The Sims Bustin' Out, and the player moves into an apartment. will text the player that your Mom called wishing you well and passes you §300 from her to start you off with, and he gives the player a refrigerator (found in every District), a sofa (from his district, Cosmo Street) and a shower (from The Foundry).

  • Mom is unwilling to build her cooking and mechanical skill, but she is willing to build her creativity, body, logic, and charisma.
  • If the player kisses Mom in The Sims for console, it will be a "friendly" kiss as no romantic music will play and the player can't fall in love with her. Because of this, there is no flirt interaction with her as well.
  • Although it is stated that she is the mother of the player, the parent status was not included in The Sims until The Sims 2 and The Sims Stories introduced it.
    • Also, even in The Sims 2 era, it is not possible without cheats to have an Adult to be a parent of another Adult. However, it is possible if a Teen ages to an adult while the parent is still an adult. If the Teen ages while his/her parent is still an adult, the current adult will still be a parent of the new adult.
  • Since Mom is presumed to be the player Sim's mother, this would make them the step-sibling of Mimi and Dudley, and the step-child of Malcolm in the game.
  • Her name 'Mom' should not be confused with the 'Mother' relationship status seen in the more recent games from The Sims series.
  • Although Mom is like an Elder, she is an Adult. This is because Elders did not appear in The Sims but The Sims 2 and The Sims Stories introduced it.
  • Although she is the ex-wife of Malcolm, she cannot be married in The Sims Bustin' Out. If the player tries to marry her, the player will get a message stating "Sorry, but I'm already spoken for, try one of the Sims on Free Street 1, 2 or 3.". Same goes for all other Sims who do not live in Free Street.
  • In The Sims Bustin' Out, if the radio station is switched to Techno or Rap, Mom can be seen dancing for hours or even days.
  • Mom can also be seen in the front right clapping for the player during the ending movie for The Sims for console.
  • If Mom dies somehow in Sims: Bustin Out or the original Sims game, the file will be restarted froom the beginning, or if you saved, you would have to go back to that save file
  • If Mom is hypnotized in The Sims Bustin' Out for console she will fall asleep only to be woken up at the player's command. The same applies to Mortimer Goth.
