A pumpkin is a uniquely carved vegetable which serves as a light source and/or decorative object typically during the season of fall/autumn. This item is introduced in The Sims 3: Seasons and The Sims 4: Spooky Stuff (with the help of a Carving Station).

The Sims 3: SeasonsEdit

In The Sims 3, pumpkins are harvested through the Gardening skill, and will be placed into the inventory of the Sim who harvested the crop. Once harvested, Sims can interact with the pumpkin by carving a unique design on it, after which Sims can place a light inside, or smash it.

The Sims 4: Spooky StuffEdit

In The Sims 4: Spooky Stuff, pumpkins return as one of the new gameplay features of the pack. Sims can interact with the pumpkins just like in The Sims 3, although they can no longer be simply grown and harvested. They are made through a pumpkin carving station.
