Poly Count: ( <1200)
EPs Required: None – base-game compatible
I know at least one of these has been done before, but it’s Toddler Month and my medieval tots wanted some teddy bears to hug, and I just couldn’t say no to them. So I’ve converted the peasant teddy from the TSM base game and the pirate teddy from Pirates & Nobles. 🙂 (Yes, in the base game there’s a knight teddy as well, but that teddy was evil. Evil, I tell you!) Their poly count comes in at just under 1200 polys, but that’s actually some 400 polys fewer than the TS2 base-game teddy, so it’s not high in any way.
Many thanks to BloomsBase for his tutorial on how to transfer TS2 bone assignments to a TS3/TSM mesh, which saved my sanity, not to mention the bone assignments’.
The TSM teddy bears are a little chunkier than the TS2 ones (and I didn’t want to scale them down too much), so there’ll be some clipping when the toddler/child huggles the bear. They also have shorter legs, so when a toddler grabs the teddy by the leg to slam it into the floor (ouch!), he’s going to grab the air just below the teddy’s would-be foot instead of the actual leg – but you’ll only see it if you look really closely and/or pause your game at the right moment. (And now you’re going to run off to do exactly that just because I told you, aren’t you? 😛 )
With that out of the way – on to the bears! The first one is the peasant teddy, formally known as Bruno d’Infanto – Cottage Craft Edition. He costs $35.
I drafted Jonah for this photo shoot as well, but in his toddler incarnation. His little brother Jeffrey didn’t like this at all
– he wants screen time, too! – so I promised him he’ll get to model the next thing I’m making instead. 😈

Peasant Bruno has four recolours for the fur and four for the tunic. The recols can be mixed and matched – and they’re in different files, so if you don’t like a particular colour you can just delete it, nothing else will be deleted with it.
The pictures are taken outside, so the bloom looks worse than it really is, I promise.
The second bear is the Ahoy Edition pirate teddy, for $55, which I’m told can be a bit tough on the teef.
Just like his peasant brother, Bruno the Pirate has four recolours for his fur and four for his tunic, which can be mixed and matched and deleted ’til your heart’s content.
Of course, it isn’t just toddlers who can play with these bears; children and adults can have fun with them as well, they have all the usual teddy bear interactions. Just so you don’t think the bears are only for toddlers because you only got toddler pictures. 🙂
