The Sims 4 “Kits” – Throwback Fit Kit, Country Kitchen Kit and Bust the Dust Kit.
In my last review I mentioned how much “bigger” the stuff packs have been lately — well, EA have noticed too and we have a new type of “Pack” or DLC for The Sims 4 called “kits”. Kits are smaller, cheaper and have more “specific” content relating to either Gameplay (things for your sims to do while in LIVE mode), Create-a-Sim (Includes more Clothing, Styles, Hair, etc) or Build/Buy Mode (Adds Home Decor, Furniture, Floorings, etc).
Three new kits have been released, so here’s the rundown:
The Sims 4 “Throwback Fit Kit”
The 90’s called and they want their fashion back!
Grab your boombox, and the cardboard for the breakdancing — If you’re totally clueless, or just straight outta Compton, then this Create A Sim Kit is for you.
Out of all three of the “kits” released at this time, the Throwback Fit Kit was the one that stood out the most. Details such as bum bags, bucket hats, layered dresses, neon colours and matching tracksuits. The content is great, and there’s something for all ages of your Sims life.
Hey, MC Hammer… you can’t touch this.
The Sims 4 “Country Kitchen Kit“
Do you like cottages? Baking? Talking with small animals? Singing your every thought?
You might be a Disney Princess, Or this pack might be for you! Cute colours and a very “antique” style. The Country Kitchen Kit includes Build Mode items to create your own quaint kitchen.
Bake fresh bread and treats in a pastel coloured oven, with a cute overhead rangehood. Even Nanna’s casserole dish is included!! I was most excited for this pack, but the items don’t seem to be as “clean” in quality as the Throwback Fit Kit. Aside from this, it is very fitting with other packs because there are lots of colour swatches. My favourite to match this one with is the Knitting Stuff Pack.
The Sims 4 “Bust the Dust Kit“
This content SUCKS!
This is the Gameplay Kit I have always wanted. Flashback to baby Alex, playing The Sims 1 after school in the early 2000’s; all I wanted was for my sims to be able to vacuum. (I’ve always been a loser, no need to remind me…) Dust the Bust, Bust the Dust — whatever. We’ve already got Roombas from The Sims 4 Cats and Dogs Expansion… but now we have vacuums and handhelds.
What else comes with Dust? Mess. Yes, and Dust Bunnies! The little fluff balls of hair, loose threads, and questionable items that are usually found under the couch have come to life — and bring you gifts and contribute to the household bills with the money they collect. It’s quite a cute pack, if you don’t mind your sims erratically vacuuming every five minutes. There is a way you can turn off the “Dust” feature in the settings and your sims will only vacuum up messes that appear normally.
