There is a new option to actually duplicate items with ease!

Also, it is important to note that when duplicating items...you still have to "pay" for the items before they can be placed/used.

Prices vary based on the home store prices.

Just dawned on me to test...the new duplication feature does not seem to work on "rare" items like the dance machine or Christmas items (at least not on my game).

Can someone else confirm this, please?

it seems to me that the duplicate button ony works on items that are already available to you in buy mode. It wont be useful for collecting items that you may have missed out on in past events, items solely available for purchase via the online store or rare items that dont ever appear in buy mode . I think it just exists to make the process of buying furnishings easier when you are doing build i.e buy 4 of the same chair or 10 of the same light ect.. :|

Here are some changes on EA site. I've thought the activewear tab was a great idea, glad they are actually listening.

That's from the Dance Party Update FAQ on the Firemonkeys' site.
Sorcha did a great job putting many things together which are supposed to happen in this update :)

Silly me, I thought that the activewear category would work like the sleepwear and swimwear so you could set their clothes for workouts. Seems it's just a quicker way to pick out the activewear clothes for everyday wear.

Oh I thought ea/fm was practically the same thing. She did, this one is very more specific about the events that are gonna be going on, not like the last post about the daycare update. I'm really excited about the upcoming live events.
