We had voodoo dolls in sims 2 Livin’ Large as a buy mode reward item and in sims 3 as a premium store content. In sims 4 they came with game. There are 3 ways to get a voodoo doll ( it is not a buy mode item and you can not just buy them ) ;
- Reaching 3 rd level Mischief skill – on this level you can buy it from computer for $ 950. It will appear on sim’s inventory and can be bought more than one.It is the easiest way to get one
- Digging – some rocks on neighbourhoods. Lowest chance to get a one. You need to get a treasure map and select ” dig for treasure ” to search for it.
- Fishing – on the fishing spots of Sylvan Glades and Forgotten Grotto ( secret locations, you can find more information about these places at the ” secret places guide ” )
Babies and children cant buy , use and cant be binded to it. You need to select a sim and bind it to voodoo doll , to use it. Anyone can be used for it, as long as he or she is on your lot. You can choose your family members or other sims from your friends panel.You can use more than one doll to bind more than one sim. Below are the interactions you will have after binding a voodoo doll to a sim; ( To use it your sim has to be at least first level on mischief skill )
- Summon – allows you to bring the binded sim to your lot. You can not bring sims to lots while they are at work

There are some negative effects of voodoo dolls, especially if you are on low level at mischief skill . One of them is backfire by the doll. In this situation your sim will receive uncomfortable moodlet by the interactions poke, soak and tickle. The other one is fizzle. You will get this moodlet if you fail using the doll and in this situation your sim will receive sad moodlet by the interactions frolic and cuddle. If you get success by using it, you sim will receive condifent moodlet and a notification will appear to inform you as ” You Do The Voodoo ”. Success in voodoo also helps leveling up at mischief skill.
You can unbind sims with voodoo dolls. For this you need to be at least 5 th level of mischief skill. From your sim’s inventory , select unbind on the voodoo doll and the sim you want to unbind to do this.
