An Era of Charming Tales (Snow White Special): Happy 19th Birthday The Sims

I cannot believe it has been 19 YEARS since I first laid my eyes on that opening map for The Sims and heard this refrain …

I had no idea my life was going to change.


It was the beginning of a beautiful obsession!

(HOWEVER, I want to point out) I am NOT addicted …

I can quit anytime I want …

anytime at all …

anytime …

Today, to commemorate this special event and to celebrate with together with you my dear readers, we are going to jump into the WAY BACK MACHINE (you just might have to be a little old to understand that reference … OH WELL!).

OK, Mr Peabody …

here we go …

00 -00 wayback machine

We are going back …

WAY back …

before the Charming family …

before Prince Charming …

before Evella …

before Windenburg …

BEFORE the asylum …

It is the day before Snow White’s birthday.

She will be sweet 16 tomorrow!

Snow is very concerned.

No one has said a single word about it.

00-00-19_2-25-52 PM

And you can trust that she has attempted to bring the subject up.

She is quite confused!

The seven dwarfs have been her caretakers for 10 years and they have never forgotten her birthday in all that time.

00-00-19_3-25-51 PM

She wonders what’s up.

Some of them are behaving very erratically.

Well, it is Bashful and that is not too far out of the norm for him but still …

01-10-19_4-00-15 PM

All those little private conversations … that end when you get there.

They seem to be distracted by something!

How could they forget?

00-00-19_4-30-06 PM

What Snow did not realize is that the boys were planning a Sweet 16 Birthday party for her.

They were very excited!

01-20-19_3-28-58 PM

OHH … what do we have here? An eavesdropper?

01-21-19_8-44-21 AM_LI


What’s up?

Why are you lurking back there?

He was attempting to hear secrets revealed about the presents each one would give Snow White.

01-21-19_8-44-22 AM

Sneezy was very anxious.

He did not have a gift idea for Snow White.

He had been wracking his brains for days and no ideas came to him.

01-21-19_8-44-23 AM

All the rest of the boys were working on their plans.

Who on earth would allow Dopey around power tools?

I mean really?

02-01-19_3-27-22 PM02-01-19_8-54-18 AM02-01-19_8-55-22 AM

Even Grumpy had come up with something!

02-01-19_8-56-31 AM02-01-19_8-56-33 AM

✮✮✮✮✮ ❤ ✮✮✮✮✮

But he had not!

This grieved him deeply!

He dearly loved little Snow White and wanted to give her something very special.

02-20-19_3-27-25 PM

Agnes, the local master gardener, seeing him in his distress, stopped by and talked the distraught Sneezy thru his dilemma.

She gave ear to his fears and with a nudge this way and then that way, she helped him find an answer.

He was a happy dwarf!

He HAD an idea!

AND it was a GRAND idea.

02-20-19_3-27-27 PM

Hmmm, there may be more going on here than just advice giving!

Do the other boys know about this?

02-20-19_3-27-29 PM

The day came and STILL, no one said anything.

Snow was feeling as blue as her eyes!

03-00-19_8-42-50 AM

She was so lost in her thoughts that she did not notice the boys scurrying about as they made preparations for the party.

03-01-19_1-39-37 AM03-01-19_1-42-44 AM03-01-19_2-24-53 AM03-01-19_2-25-49 AM

The place was a mess!

Bashful was freaking out.

Well, it is true that he is always freaking out but at least this time he had a reason!

They had not forgotten!

05-01-19_2-34-10 AM

They had made her favorite for dinner!

Baked Salmon and Cheesy Bread!


OHH I see Agnes scored an invite ❤

It is true that they often drive her cray-cray but they are her seven dads and she will always be their little girl.

❤ Her family!

She loves them dearly!

“I have a gift for you,” Sneezy held out the pretty box.

08-01-19_9-35-22 AM

Snow White carefully opened it.

Sneezy explained, “It is a book called ‘The Road to Love.’

I know one day your Prince will come and I do not want you two to miss each other.

I hope you like it.”

08-01-19_9-35-46 AM

“It is perfect,” Snow whispered as she gave Sneezy a hug!

For those of you have been on this journey with me for the past (nearly) 3 years you know her Prince does indeed come  (took him a while).

The Road to Love was not easy but they made it!

12-31-15_1-55-37 AM

BUT not to worry …

thru the magic of The Sims …

They got a REDUX ❤


And the happily ever after still goes on ….

  2. What a wonderful celebration – and chapter. Snow White and the 7 Dwarves are adorable.
    Amazing to think it’s been 19 years since we first saw that map and heard that music – and met Bella, Mortimer, and Casandra 😀

  3. Ahhh….that was so sweet. And such a great gift from Sneezy. So, true, Snow did find the Road to Love, and now her children follow on that road, too. Nice memory, especially that opening map of The Sims! lol

      1. I am sorry I have so little time to read and of caring of my friends here, I take pills that makes me sleeping on daytime against Anxiety and all the stuffs I am suffering from. I even don’t feel the courage to reboot Miss V even though I got ideas to make it better, I just wrote two little Sims in the City in French here. I am so much ashamed I blocked my access to my wordpress publicly. I will try to me present more but I don’t promise anything. I even rarely play with my game.

        If you want to chat with me on tumblr , let me a message on your dash with @thesimsophonique mentionned I’ll contact you because I don’t know why I blocked my messages. I unlocked it .

      2. I hope you are well soon ❤ You are too hard on yourself about your story BUT I do understand because writing is like laying a piece of you on the table for eveyone to take a bit … it is a very vunerable experience. ❤ ❤

      3. It will difficult to be better till I am under the treatment but thanks to it I can live without any anxiety or very very little . I am thankful even though I would like to have an other way to feel ok. Because that kinds of pills are horrible long term.

        Volilà voilou my ask box is back :


  4. Thanks for including that video of The Sims 1! I’d never seen it as I started playing with TS3. (Your Mr. Peabody reference wasn’t lost on me, though.) It was great to meet the young Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs. They’re adorable!
