This game is only on preteens, the next update for this app will most likely have a clothes, makeup, and hair expansion, but soon, (if requested enough) they might make a teen update, I wish I could download emo stuff, and I hope they add that in an expansion, but most likely, you'd have to pay for that expansion. Hope I helped!

Sadly you can not have a normal teen yet but My teen sim does have a house so here is what you do first divores 2 married Sims with a pre-teen sim then become really good friends with 2 sims and move in with them make sure the pre-teen is by him self at the mother or the fathers house then go on The Town Map and see if you see your pre-teens face

Guest said: 30th Nov 2013 | REPORT
AWSOME I can't wait till my teen grow to an adult
Guest said: 22nd Jan 2014 | REPORT
I think I might know but, well I'm only at level 7 almost 8 but something weird happened,
My sim can't have a birthday but every single time I do it it says have birthday but it won't let me do it. Now I will answer that other question.You have to send them to elementary then you let finish school next you make them go to high school make them graduate. BOOM you got your selves a teenage girl or guy in a house.
(P.s make graduate early Smile )

Guest answered:

My preteen is getting a lot taller...
She used to be up to her mother and fathers waists but I have recently noticed her height - she is at their chins!! If she keeps growing she will be a preteen who hasn't reached her growth spurt but is really tall!

Guest answered:

Please make a teen or Adult update

ot87 answered:

I hope they make a teens (highschool) update, the a college update so they can be the party animal kind of young adults and then have an update where they move out and start getting married and all that. And I wish they would allow more than 23 Sims. Cause I'm at level 32 and I reached the highest number of sims you can have which is 23 and I really want more people. And they should expand the city too once all of the Houses are full. And I wish that the relastionship between the parents and kids wouldnt say friends haha. Cause in real life, your not friends with your parents. I don't understand why they do that.

I would like more people too. I think I have roughly the same as you, but it does say if I buy VIP points I get to add 5 more when at the VIP limit. I don't really spend real cash on the game, so probably will never finish the game as I can't see me ever having 400+ lp's or whatever I need to add interview rooms etc .
Guest answered:

UGH! Wish I knew that a teen couldn't grow up before I wasted LP buying a cake.

Ya I once bought at least 60 lifestyle points, and i wanted one of my toddlers to get older right? well i tap the oven icon and tap the cake, 5 of my lp are wasted, and no one is baking the cake. I do it again. ANOTHER 5 of them are waisted. I kept doing that at least 5 more times with already half of my lp gone.
Guest said: 16th Jun 2013 | REPORT
^ha that sucks. sorry...
Guest said: 31st Aug 2013 | REPORT
So you have to make them graduate then do the hobby???
Guest said: 4th Sep 2013 | REPORT
you know you can just wait for it to bake, so you don't have to waste lifepoints. lol
Guest answered:

They should let toddlers have hobbies like doll collecting,building dollhouses/birdhouses, making lego cities, arts and crafts, clay/ play-doh, etc.
Guest said: 14th Feb 2015 | REPORT
Yea. Delete the Sims you spent LIFE POINTS on and just make them adults. TOTALLY worth it.

Ya I know right
Guest answered:

Yup, it's time for some updates regarding the teens. Also, we need an update to let the baby take a bath. Allow us to have more people. How about a redneck house. Every real neighborhood has a couple. How about letting the adults get romantic to some music and candle lights.

babies in real life cant take a bath by themselves like in real life you need an adult to give the baby a bath!
Guest said: 4th Sep 2013 | REPORT
Since we all kinda of want an update why doesn't some one contact the creator and tell him/her just saying
Guest said: 21st Sep 2013 | REPORT
You already can you just need the two person bath that is shaped like a heart and then you need a toddler and an adult and then the toddler can bathe and the adult watches[spoiler][color=red][color=red][color=red][/color] [/color] [/color] [/spoiler]

Guest said: 21st May 2017 | REPORT
I wish they would do a major update for preteens toop. It sucks I can't even get to the teen quest because the game isn't letting me!
Guest answered:

I agree update so preteens can go to high School then college. The romance is lots of talking a kiss mebe that's it. Update the adults romance too. Holding hands walking in Park. Being able to talk and eat having romantic dinner. Giving flowers could be for everyone kids to mums friends to friends but mostly roses for those romancing. Give chocolate all simple things. Also let's be able to SEE the sea on all beachfront premium property not just one out of 3 I have. But come on freeplay wizards the people have been crying out for the teen update in forever now. Read back were all saying n not the only ones.

My preteens reach to A+++ & 100%. Someone plz reply!!!
Guest answered:

Preteens don't actually grow into adults(in this case), in fact, they seem "forever young", they will just be preteens.

Ok so I tried the advice above. My preteen sim is at the max level for School. A+++ and is at 100% level 6/6 on ice skating Hobby. I baked a birthday cake and clicked on it when done. The preteen did not grow up. So....yeah....any other suggestions?

You should update your sims and complete the goal for teens
Guest answered:

Preteen is when you're about 11-12 years old or grade 5,6 or 7. You'd still be a kid. I think it be really stupid if they don't add a teen after preteen as teens are the ones that turn into adults- there young adults, just like preteens are, well, what it says- pre teens.

baby- Toddler- Child- Preteen- Teenager- Adult- Senior
0-1- 2-3- 4-10- 11-12- 13-19- 20+- 65+

All through the time you're a baby to the end of being a teenager you're still a kid how once you're an Adult you'll never be a kid again ,so be who you are and love being a kid. :-)

They are making a new update. In fact, they already have. Also, adults can become seniors (but I am not doing that anymore because sim seniors are even uglier than those alien looking sim babies! DSmile

I don't think they can grow up at all. :(

Help!!! On my sims freeplay everyone keeps saying scroll right and you will see the baby Icon. But I don't see it!! Is it when you go to the children s store? At the home store I don't see it :',(
Guest said: 11th Jan 2014 | REPORT
Guest above me Go to the children's store, Buy a crib, place it in your house, click the baby icon and wait a day. I'm currently waiting for my baby to finish so Good Luck! Hope I provided enough info for you.
Guest answered:

In the old update they can't grow

Guest answered:

In the new update pre-teens can grow into a teen but you have to complete a Quest on a certain level but I forgot what level it is.

Guest answered:

Problem solved! It's 2014! The update gives you new Quests and the ability to have preteens to teens, teens to adults, and adults to Seniors! There is also a Bird Feeding and Quilting Hobby for the seniors!

Furball Hall answered:

With the update before this one you have to complete the Teenagers Quest to Age your preteen into a teen. Hope I helped

Guest answered:

You have to finish the Teen Quest. Its on. Level 18 maybe?

Guest answered:

I baked the cake and tried to "Have a birthday" for my Preteen, I get the message "I have to complete the Teenagers Quest which is attained once on level 16, and if I can't see the teenager quest (which I can't) I have to finish other tasks first." I am currently on level 21. Is there a place that lists tasks I need to complete?
