Expansion packs; Requires The Sims to play This value-priced pack combines three great expansions for the classic Sims universe: The Sims: Hot Date, Vacation, and Makin' Magic.

Everything from a candlelit dinner, a drink at the bar, or a rendezvous in the park is possible as your Sim attempts to orchestrate an evening to remember. With the Vacation Expansion Pack you can take your Sims where they've never been before: on a family vacation.

From a sun-drenched beach to a snow-filled wonderland to a forest campground, Vacation Island offers awide range of fun new activities for your Sims. Take a spin on a carousel or a wild ride on a snow slide, build a snowman or a sandcastle, bring home all sorts of cool new souvenirs, and much more. All-new interactions between parents and children ensure an equal chance for merriment or mayhem, which means that your Sims vacation is sure to be a memorable one... one way or another. Pack up the whole family for the vacation of a lifetime, Sims style. Beware! Your Sims can now harness the supernatural with the Makin' Magic Expansion Pack, casting spells with playful or mischievous intentions. With a new magical, carnival-themed location, over 175 new items, and a host of quirky new characters, Makin' Magic is the largest Sims Expansion Pack ever. New gameplay includes making, gathering, and questing for ingredients to brew magic spell recipes. Get help around the house from magical minions, turn pesky neighbors into toads, or make that hard-to-get Sim fall in love with you. But watch out, spells can backfire if you're not careful. Either way, the neighborhood will never be the same.
Now that this game is considered really old (agh, I'M not that old am I?) if you never quite finished that collection of the original Sims game, you really should consider picking this up. These three were some of the most ground breaking in the collection (I can go out of my neighborhood now?) and fun (I can turn her into a toad?) as well as sexy (woo hooing in the dressing room!). They really expand your gaming experience.
