I have just discovered it is not limited to "play dolls". Sims cannot "teach shapes to toddlers" or "teach toddlers to build tower" either. When we use these interactions, they start as they used to, but as soon as the toddler starts to play with the blocks, the older sim stops and autonomously starts doing something else.

Same problem. Was able to get the child to play with the dollhouse, but could never get the "Play Dolls With" interaction to work.

Any EA response to this issue? It's hard to play The Sims 4 without "teach shapes to toddlers" or "teach toddlers to build tower" because toddlers won't get maximum skills without them, so no kids can be born in the game until the problem is fixed. Unless you don't care about their skills.

  • Having the same issue. Playing dolls with others, no matter the age, is not working. Also, play make believe doesn't seem to be working. From what I remember, the kids would usually run around playing. Now they just stand there and talk for a second, then it's over. I'm wondering if they new patch broke children having interactions with others due to the new animation in nifty knitting teaching kids to knit. I hope they fix this issue. My family game play is boring without these child interactions.

@DolphinSSA None of my sims will play together (toddlers, kids, adults and all combinations), but they can both "play dolls" by themselves at the same time...

@JustineBo23 DizzyDee-K, on the post above yours, presented a solution that worked well in my game. Sims can play dolls together, and can use the blocks to "teach shapes to toddlers" or to "teach toddlers to build tower" again.
