[ Edited ]
★ Guide

Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Cats and Dogs / City Living / Get Together / Get to Work / Parenthood / Vampires / Dine Out / Spa Day / Outdoor Retreat / My First Pet / Spooky / Cool Kitchen / Perfect Patio / Luxury Party
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Select the "play" interaction with a toddler.
What happens when the bug occurs? The animations appear to be... quite odd. =) Check the video for reference.
What do you expect to see? The toddler plays with the adult normally as the animation should be.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

(view in My Videos)


As you can see from the above video, the animation doesn't seem right. Standard smile

Re: Toddler - "Play" Interaction

@hestiah23 Does it ahppen 100% of the cases again ? I had it a few times after it was fixed but it was pretty random. More not happening then happening

Happy Gaming

@crinrict It’s happening every so often with the families I play.

Yes, this also happens in my game in 50 % of the play interactions. The bug is many months old. A similar long-distance distortion can also be observed when Sims are petting pets autonomously.

@alanmichael1 I also see the long arm issue when letting out a toddler from the high chair.

I've seen this a lot if the sims don't have plenty of open space around them. They might need 2-3 squares of space on all sides. If a piece of furniture is in that space, they glitch out more often than not.
