Free Items and Objects

Thank you for printing this page from Remember to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for The Sims FreePlay
Last Updated:

It is fair to say that everything in the game costs the player something to acquire -- whether that cost is measured in Simoleons, Life Points, social Points, or time itself -- with the exception of a very small handful of items in the game that are FREE, if it is something you are adding to your Sim Town, it costs you something.

The truly free items in the game tend to fit neatly into one of three categories:

(1) Promotional Items: Items that have been placed in the game as part of a paid promotional effort on the part of a real-world corporation. Toyota has been heavily involved in that sort of product or brand placement in the Sims games, as has Ikea and Pet-related brand Iams.

While these items are free - that is to say that they do not cost the player any of the in-game currencies to obtain -- they do feature the brand of the sponsor quite prominently and, depending on how strongly you feel as an individual, therefore come at a cost.

(2) Items related to Special or Themed Events: These generally tend to be specifically targeted along a theme basis, though there often are neutral objects that appear in the decorations Tab and that, whether on purpose or by accident, end up left in the game and item catalog long after the Event ends.

Most players consider these to be good things.

While the selection isn't huge, there are free items in the game for decorating.
While the selection isn't huge, there are free items in the game for decorating.

(3) Loyalty Rewards: A sort of randomly selected collection of items - often decoration-centric - that are added to the game by the developers as a way of thanking the player for their continued and active participation as players.

Enduring Free Items

As previously noted, sometimes a free item or two will stay in the game and in the in-game store catalog long after the Event or promotion that they are related to has ended. Nobody can really say why this happens - whether it is an accident or on purpose. Nobody except the Dev Team, and they are not talking!

The meaning of the proverb “Don't look a gift Horse in the mouth” is simple: when you receive a gift from someone, do not be ungrateful.

That's good advice - especially in the case of The Sims FreePlay! Compared to most other Freemium games available for Android and iOS on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod, via the related app distribution services, FreePlay is incredibly expensive!

To put this in perspective, here is the current (as of August 2013) Sims FreePlay Online Store offerings and their prices for in-game currencies:

  • $1,960,000 Simoleon Bundle - Real-Word Cost: $99.99

  • $196,000 Simoleon Bundle - Real-Word Cost: $19.99

  • $60,000 Simoleon Bundle - Real-Word Cost: $14.99

  • $35,500 Simoleon Bundle - Real-Word Cost: $9.99

  • $24,500 Simoleon Bundle - Real-Word Cost: $7.99

  • $11,000 Simoleon Bundle - Real-Word Cost: $4.99

  • 3500 Life Points Bundle - Real-World Cost: $99.99

  • 1500 Life Points Bundle - Real-World Cost: $49.99

  • 500 Life Points Bundle - Real-World Cost: $19.99

  • 160 Life Points Bundle - Real-World Cost: $14.99

  • 89 Life Points Bundle - Real-World Cost: $9.99

  • 32 Life Points Bundle - Real-World Cost: $5.99

  • 10 Life Points Bundle - Real-World Cost: $2.99

  • 2000 social Points Bundle - Real World Cost: $99.99

  • 720 social Points Bundle - Real World Cost: $49.99

  • 320 social Points Bundle - Real World Cost: $24.99

  • 240 social Points Bundle - Real World Cost: $19.99

  • 110 social Points Bundle - Real World Cost: $5.99

  • 52 social Points Bundle - Real World Cost: $4.99

  • 10 social Points Bundle - Real World Cost: $2013.99

In addition to the above regular bundles, there is a special bundle under the SPECIALS Tab:

  • $14.99 Currency Bundle: $35,500 Simoleon Piggy Bank ($9.99) + 89 Life Point Box ($9.99)

Clearly the costs for playing the game using real-world money can be considerable if you allow yourself to take that route. That is why this guide is so valuable to players, as its focus is providing both the information and tactics that are useful for making real progress without having to spend real-world money!

Now that we have that issue addressed, let's take a look at the two basic Free Items Categories - Regular Free Items, and Temporary Free Items.

The Temporary Free Items List

These are items that pop-up in the game with little or no Warning, and are only available for a limited time. It may interest you to know that these can come and go with no official Notice on the official game website too!

  • Furniture > Electronics: Deluxe iPhone / iPod Stereo Dock w/Speakers (3-Star / FREE)

The Regular Free Items List

The following list of free items was valid as of August 2013 (when this revision to the guide was written), and are listed here with the Menu Navigation followed by the Tab, then the item name.

Bear in mind that these items largely consist of items in the Promotional and Themed Event Categories. There are also items from the third though unofficial Category, which we term the Player Loyalty Category:

  • Furniture > Decorations Tab: Toyota Guitar Amp

  • Furniture > Decorations Tab: Toyota Brand Surfboard

  • Furniture > Decorations Tab: Blue Wheelie Suitcase

  • Outdoors > Outdoor Decorations Tab: Garden Fountain

  • Outdoors > Outdoor Furniture Tab: Blue and White Director Chair

  • Outdoors > Outdoor Furniture Tab: Pink and White Beach Chair

  • Outdoors > Outdoor Furniture Tab: Blue and White Beach Chair

  • Outdoors > Outdoor Furniture Tab: Toyota Branded BBQ

  • Outdoors > Trees, Plants & Flowers Tab: Red Roses in Vase

  • Hobby Shop: Toyota Guitar

Temporary Free Items

The following free items are temporarily in the game - if you get them, well then good on you! If they are gone when you go looking for them, well then you should have looked earlier!

  • House > Bathroom: Febreeze Raised Toilet (2-Star / FREE)

  • House > Kitchen: Febreeze-branded double-cooler drink case (1-Star / FREE)

  • House > Living Room: Febreeze Beanbag Seat (1-Star / FREE)

  • House > Preteen: Febreeze Beanbag Seat (1-Star / FREE)

As free items are added to the game, we will make every effort to add them to the list, since knowing that they are there and available is the easiest way to take advantage of them!

    I tried to buy 765,000 simoleans for $4.99 after my dad put the pass word in he kept getting asked questions like what was your first pet etc. I wasn't able to buy the simoleans because they weren't excepting his answers to the questions.

    I just got sims back a few days ago but the last time I had it ( don't know if it's still there ) it helped a lot with getting lp but all you have to do is complete the cooking quest and then keep on cooking and leveling up and then you will get the chopping boards but do not give up on cooking just yet once you have the cooking boards it will give you a choice to reset the utensils and keep cooking get all of the sets and then your reward will be 5 lp how exciting right!! Hope this helped Smile

    okay here is the thing just keep leveling up in cooking until you get to level 4 or 5 of cooking it will give you other options like this
    the ones with the star you can make With a level 1 toaster level 2 fridge (for quiche) or level 1 microwave or if you are level 1-5 of cooking ( there are other dishes for them im just using these for this example)

    Spaghetti - cooking board level 1
    Nachos- cooking board level 1

    Hope this helped!!!☺️

    The Globe is found in the in-game store: STORE > FURNITURE > DECORATIONS and it costs $10K. Note it is rather large so you need a free area in your house for it so it will not block access to doors and such...

    Generally the free gifts that you can place in your home are found in your personal inventory - the free items that are used for actions are simply part of the player record and are available when you use the associated action in the game.
