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

If you want to get a cooking hobby, you get an oven and get your Sim to do baking. If you want a fishing hobby, call your Sim over to the park and get them to fish by tapping a certain part of the lake and selecting fish

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'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.

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?

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 | 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 said: 21st Mar 2015 | REPORT
If a preteen masters a hobby, it doesn't mean it's getting older. If u finish the Life Dreams quest u can to age it to a teen before an adult. Or a birthday cake

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

the Sim can't get to the item move it to a different room or place
Guest said: 15th Jul 2014 | 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.

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

Find your Sim a hobby like thing to do. Say a Stove. Click on the Stove and then click 'Eggs and Bacon' and your Sim will be cooking in no time! Once they finished cooking, your sim would have a hobby! Hope you like it! Lollipop meeee out
