The Tree Friends
The Tree Friends (also known as Happy Tree Friends in the Sims) is a life-simulation video game mainly based on The Sims 3.


The gameplay is (obviously) mostly based on the Sims 3.

Players control their own Tree Friend's activities and relationships in a manner similar to real life, except in the HTF universe. You can either choose from a pre-existing character (canon characters) or create your own using the Create a Happy Tree Friend option.

Create a Happy Tree FriendEdit

This option is used to create your own tree friends to use in the game. You can choose to make them a Toddler (like Cub), a Child (like Toothy), a Teenager (like Cuddles or Giggles), a Young Adult, an Adult, and an Elder.
