Associating the correct sound with an animal can be crucial to a Sim’s survival. Just imagine you are lost in the wild and can’t tell the difference between a delicious but harmless steakosaurus and a poisonous kill-o-cat. Now you have the chance to teach your youngest ones which animals make what sounds! Several colorful buttons and the associated animal sounds will increase your sweetie’s chances for survival significantly!

The Bouncinator 3000 is an object that was available for purchase in The Sims 2 Store. Along with The DangleMaster Deluxe, it was a part of the Oh Baby! store set.

Although it was planned to be included in The Sims 2: Apartment Life, due to unknown reasons, EA removed it and later put in the store.

Like The DangleMaster Deluxe, this object can only be used by babies. The object is a type of swing in which babies can play and bounce. There is a set of three buttons on it, which, when pressed by babies, imitate different animal sounds. If the baby's needs go too low, it will constantly press one of the buttons in the chair, unimpressed, and then cry and rattle the swing.

Players should note that this objects functions only if Apartment Life or Mansion & Garden Stuff is installed. Since The Sims 2 Store has been taken down, it can no longer be downloaded, though there's a modified version of it and the DangleMaster available here.

Trivia Edit

  • Babies in the Bouncinator will start to cry when their (invisible)bladder need is half-empty instead of near-empty. As a result, they would cry for several hours before actually requiring a diaper change.
  • Babies will only complain if their hunger, bladder or hygiene needs get too low. If their energy need gets low, they will simply fall asleep in the chair.
