A bunch of new mechanics and items for sims of all ages, Imaginary friends and childrens' costumes are adorable, Pulling pranks and using the video camera are fun.
Greater depth of gameplay for Child and Teen Sims; new Day Care profession is fun; integrated well into the existing experience rather than feeling like a new game.
Doesn't have much impact on the overall experience, Proms and other features are missed opportunities, Overpriced for what you get.
Not as flashy or as obvious an improvement as previous expansion packs; could be argued that this pack's content should have been included in the main game, especially for the price.
