The equipment (apart from the ghost furniture) only help you to level up in your jobs. E.g. Artist = easel. They aren't hobbies. Well not to my knowledege

Whats the thing that boosts the art hobby

Well If you have a preteen in the sport center they can get ballet or karate hobby. If you are a sim adult go to park and fish. Or buy for your home in decorations a spooky thing and you will be come a ghost buster

Cool works good I've been wanting my sims to have a hobby
 
 
 
Guest answered: Added 29th Dec 2012, ID #560425
I'm level 22. With what I've unlocked so far, here is a list of hobbies (with their items) I've identified.

Adult Sims:
Fishing - large platform in park; click near the fishing rod
Fashion Design - buy workstation from hobby shop
Ghosthunting - any item of furniture with the "spook" symbol

Pre-teen Sims
Karate - click on dummy or boards in the youth centre
Ballet - click on bars or dance space in the youth centre

With the exception of the fashion item (so far, at least) the other stuff in the hobby shop is *not* to get a hobby, but to help Sims advance in their jobs.

There are other activities, in the park (BBQ, speech-making, chess or t'ai-chi) or in the nightclub (cocktail mixing, djing), but these don't seem to be hobbies.

Let me know if I missed any, but I hope this helps.

If you want one of your sims to be a ghostbuster, just buy something with the "spook" symbol on it. Use it, and your hobby will be ghostbusting! There's a few more hobby choices, too, but that's just one of them. Hope it helps!

I have several spooky items in the house, but when i try any char to use an item to train for ghost hunter hobby...it gives me a red circle with / through it. Any suggestions?

I'm having the same problem hunting ghost in a neighbor's house... red circle with / through it.
Guest said: 4th Nov 2014, ID #467361 | REPORT
I'm playing on the android version and I believe we have to complete the Ghost Hunters quest before we can start hunting ghosts as a hobby.

Use the whistle symbol by your sim's icon to call them to the park, then tap the fishing pole.
Guest said: 18th Jun 2014, ID #401803 | REPORT
You can click on the pond or the fishing pole, but your sim has to be at the park. You just click on the park and once it is loaded, click on the whistle by the sim you want to go to the park. Once they are at the park, you can click on the pond or the pole. Once they have went fishing, it will give them the fishing hobby. I haven't been able to find any other hobbies as of yet, that's why I am looking at this site : )
Guest said: 24th Jun 2014, ID #405767 | REPORT
Are there only 2 hobbies for adults? I've tried over and over to make one of my adult sims to practice soccer and all I get is xp no hobby experience. I have all of the hobby items from the store too.
Guest said: 21st Jul 2014, ID #422956 | REPORT
The soccer ball is only for athletes so they can get promotions faster

For an adult to be a ghost hunter, all you have to do is buy furniture with the ghost symbols on them. To go fishing, take a sim to the park and click on the pole or the lake. To be a fashion designer, you need to build the hobby shop and buy the workplace. Does anyone know how to do tai chi at the park?

You have to click on the sim when they're in the park

Well, I believe, a preteen must master a hobby (karate or ballet) in order to grow to an adult. One of my 4 preteens r level 5/6 with 97%!!! Almost there!
For two married sims to divorce, this is what happens
My two sims didn't argue. The icon just popped up, so inclicked it. Curious
Anyway, no one moved out, I t hunk you can if you WANT to. But they kept living in the same house. I think it's because, they (EA) doesn't want you to be blue to get a free house. Sneaky.
But you're sims may have to argue a lot. Good luck xo

You can move out you just need another house. Click on it and click the button that says relocate sim. It costs money though.
Guest said: 2nd Jul 2014, ID #410697 | REPORT
Or if you won't you can put the sim back into the house it was in before, just a little money saving tip.
 
 
 
Guest answered: Added 26th Feb 2013, ID #573581
After getting a divorce you have to click on an empty house and pay to relocate that sim.

Ghost Hunter-buy a piece if furniture that has the red ghost icon in the bottom corner. Place it in your home and click in it and choose hunt for ghost.
Fishing - build the park and then go to it. Then bring up your list of sims from bottom right corner. Choose a sim and click on the whistle, that will bring them to the park. There is a fishing pole on the dock, click on it and choose an option.
Diving - build the sports center, go to it, click sims list, use whistle, click diving board, choose option.
Fashion designer - you think you get that from "Promotions `r` us"
PRE-TEENS- I think they only have two options: ballet and karate.
Ballet - you have two options 1) have enough online neighbors (Facebook) to add a record player to your house. 2) build the SPORT CENTER, there is a record player already there.
Karate - two options 1) enough neighbors for practice dummy. 2) Sport center.

I've placed a ghost item in my home, but when I click it, the SIM just shakes their head, says "nuh-uh" and has a red circle with a line through it pop up above their head. Why?

either ur sims is teenager or something blocking your sims
Guest said: 4th Jun 2014, ID #393826 | REPORT
the Sim can't get to the item move it to a different room or place
Guest said: 15th Jul 2014, ID #419280 | REPORT
That's not correct at all. If they can't get to something it shows footprints above their head. The red circle means they won't or can't do it. I'm guessing (just guessing) you have to be a certain level or unlock something to start ghost hunting.
 
 
 
Guest answered: Added 19th Jun 2013, ID #592889
Because you have to move the item. The sin can't get to it, he's blocked somehow

Hi you need to buy a building in your town like the snow park, or the swimming centre or for instance I bought the community centre. Once it's built click on it and you will find yourself in the community centre then use your simtracker to bring your sims there. Once your SIM is in the community centre you can click on the karate body or wood planks, the ballet CD player thing or the woodwork desk and it will come up with different options, choose how long you would like you SIM to do the activity then come back when they've finished they're task. Now look on the hobby button thing and it should say they have a hobby and what level they're on! Hope this helped!

Some of the things at the promotion r us store have hobbies like the fashion studio and lots of the supermarket items to. You can also go to the park and have a SIM fish at the bridge. I am pretty sure that only the fashion studio is a hobby at the promotions r us. Your best bet for hobbies: supermarket

When you get the park, on one of the bridges you will see a fishing pole. Click it and fish that will give you a hobby (fishing)

Another hobby is if you have the stands and a horse and you clean up the tricks area or the other areas at the stable it will also be a hobby.
