Pics of the sleepwear

They should have definitely put in the description that you only get sleepwear for one age group at a time.

I know lots of people think lots of different bundles are scams and I'm always saying they aren't. But this is something I would call a scam. There's no indication that you only get one age group.

The order you get them when purchasing them looks like the order they are unlocked during the sleepwear event.

YAnymore else get an online sale on "prepped for prom" outfits (male/female teens) for $11.99 USD today?
I think we all did.

The FreePlay Facebook page posted this pic when the Prepped for Prom event started:

Looks like the dress the teen on the right is wearing is from this bundle and the suit the teen on the left is wearing.

The main difference for the teen male suits is bow ties instead of straight ties.

I really dont want to spend that much for the outfits. But the online teen gowns are really gorgeous. I like them better than the ones we received as Prizes in the Teen Event. I ended up "donating" to FM....Sigh...

The pajamas disappeared from the online store already. I wish they would have pajamas available for all ages baby to senior in the mall or in the wardrobe.

The thing that bothers me most about these online bundles is the whole "sale" price. Since they are never listed anywhere at the regular price, I don't think that they should be allowed to list it as a special price. If a regular business, say Wal-Mart did that, it would be considered false advertising.

As for value, I have a bundle right now consisting of 1 dress in 6 colors for $9.99. The "regular" price is shown as $34.99! I know that they put work into these pieces, but there is no way that the value of 1 dress is almost as much as a complete Sims 4 Expansion Pack!

Why is there a "Prepped for Prom" Online Bundle when I already unlocked all the dresses with the event?

Because they want you to spend real money. They are really selfish like that

They are additional suits and dresses that go with the prom theme. They've been selling complementary bundles to go with event prizes since the Country Homestead event last November.

I don't think selfish is the right word, though. Naturally we would all like to unlock the complementary items in the event itself but as this is a free-to-play game and the game developers still need to make money (they have rent, too!), and more importantly EA needs to make money on this game to justify continued production of it, putting bundles like this in the online store is more of a necessary evil.

It's basically have us pay for additional content, if we want to - remember it's not forced, so that the game continues to make money and FM/EA can continue to develop it and create more events were we can unlock things for free. Which, of course, will now come with complementary bundles in the online store so the circle can continue.

I wish they had switched the dresses, though. The ones in this bundle are much nicer than the ones from the event. But they know that, don't they. ;)
