How to Get a Voodoo Doll in The Sims 4

How mischievous are your Sims characters? Do you walk up to someone and greet them, only to shake their hand with an electric buzzer? How about walking up to everyone you know and telling them you’re a criminal mastermind who can predict the apocalypse? If you want to practice expert mischief skills, you’ll have to get your hands on a voodoo doll and make someone’s life wild. To learn more, continue reading to discover how to get a voodoo doll in The Sims 4.

Where to Find a Voodoo Doll in The Sims 4

There are four ways to find a voodoo doll in The Sims 4:

  • Purchase through a computer for 950 Simoleons (Requires level three Mischief)
  • Use the Hidden Items cheat to buy it through the Build-Buy menu for 950 Simoleons
  • Randomly encountered it while fishing
  • Dig for collectibles from mineral rocks

While buying the voodoo doll through a computer is the easiest and fastest way to get it, you can obtain it for free through fishing. However, doing this is random, and you’re more likely to get fish instead.

Buying a Voodoo Doll

To find a voodoo doll through your computer, click on any in-game PC until you see “Order.” Open this and select “Purchase Voodoo Doll” to find a confirmation menu, allowing you to choose how many dolls you want and their price. After buying it, the voodoo doll will appear in your Sim’s inventory.

    • PC – Ctrl+Shift+C

Fishing and Digging for a Voodoo Doll

If you want to try to get a voodoo doll for free, you can occasionally find one while fishing or breaking collectible rocks. However, it is an uncommon drop from either source, as you’re more likely to find fish, crystals, and metals. I’ve had better luck with fishing, as I’ve encountered several voodoo dolls in various locations.

How to Use Voodoo Dolls in The Sims 4

Once you’ve gotten your hands on a voodoo doll, click it in your inventory and choose “Bind to”. Pick a Sim to bind them to the doll, allowing you to perform various actions that directly affect the Sim.

After binding someone to the doll, you can do the following actions:

  • Summon – Bring the Sim to your current lot
  • Cuddle – +2 Flirty Moodlet
  • Frolic – +2 Playful Moodlet
  • Poke – +2 Angry Moodlet
  • Soak – +2 Dazed Moodlet
  • Tickle – +2 Uncomfortable Moodlet

As you can see, not all of the options have negative consequences. You can use these on friends as well to give them positive moodlets!
