The Sims 3: Katy Perry’s Sweet Treats Review


The Sims 3: Katy Perry’s Sweet Treats is a “Stuff Pack” that has exclusive Katy Perry themed items for your Sims to decorate their homes with, venues, and dress them up in. If you are a fan of Katy Perry and also play The Sims 3, this is a must buy stuff pack for your game!


Game Description
Indulge your Sims with the sweet and vibrant style of Katy Perry. The Sims™ 3 Katy Perry’s Sweet Treats pack showcases a vast range of décor items, furniture, and, of course, fabulous fashions and hairstyles! Inspired by Katy’s real-life clothing and props, these fun furnishings, décor, and fashions will add a dash of sweet style to your Sims’ lives.  Packed with more stuff than you have ever seen, your Sims will also enjoy three all-new spectacular venues including a local hangout, a town park, and a neighborhood swimming pool—each decked out in delicious Katy Perry style!

FEATURES
o     Sweeten your Sims’ lives with delicious, Katy Perry-inspired items from a cupcake-themed guitar and candy playground equipment, to luscious cotton candy trees and more.
o     Turn your Sims’ homes and neighborhood into a vibrant candytopia, complete with whimsical and colorful furnishings and décor, such as a banana split sofa, a fountain made of candy, or even a waffle cone picnic table.
o     Outfit your Sims in an array of new clothing and hairstyles that are straight from Katy Perry’s red carpet appearances, music videos and concert performances all recreated for The Sims in a true to life way.
o     Transform the neighborhood with three, all-new, pre-built venues. Stroll over to the Bonbon Lawn Park where your Sims will find loads of candy playground equipment. Players can also take their Sims to the Cake Pleasure Dome, the town’s charming local hangout.
o     Rock out with your Sims to a Simlish version of Katy Perry’s hit song, ‘Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.),’ recorded for the game by Katy Perry.


My Thoughts
I love The Sims 3 and Katy Perry, so her addition to the “The Sims 3: Showtime” expansion pack and this whole stuff pack with her items is something I really wanted to use in my games. I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of really good and unique content that was added in with this stuff pack. Sometimes the stuff packs are a little bit of a letdown, but this one is fabulous! Sure, Katy Perry fans will enjoy it the most, but so what? It adds bright, fun new items to the game that are completely original. I love it!

This “Stuff Pack” has a large amount of new items, especially clothing for female adult Sims. Most of my characters I care about dressing up differently are adult female Sims anyways, so this didn’t bother me in the least. By my count, there are 33 new clothing items, and only 2 of those are for adult males. I had quite a bit of fun dressing up my Katy Perry Sim and other Sims around town in her costumes. I also designed her home to include a variety of the new objects as well. It makes for a fun pop singer experience with the Showtime expansion pack as well.



Katy Perry’s Sweet Treats also includes three new venues for your Sims to hangout at. “Bonbon Lawn” is a park that features candy playground equipment. The Sim kids I took there enjoyed playing on the equipment, but I bet they were pretty disappointed they couldn’t wear any of Katy’s new clothing items. The “Cake Pleasure Dome” is a charming local hangout that I quite enjoyed taking Sims to visit. However, my favorite out of the three is “Patty’s Natural Baths” which is a new pool location that features candy inspired décor and even a licorice slippery slide. This is a fun place to throw a birthday party at, especially for kids!


Overall, I really enjoyed this stuff pack. It has so many new clothing selections and objects that it really allows you to turn your neighborhood into a candy-wonderland if you so desire. It is fun and uplifting, and I highly recommend it.
