How to Remove Jeb Harris’ Paper Bag in The Sims 4: Eco Lifestyle

To remove Jeb Harris’ paper bag in The Sims 4, you must either play as him or invite him to your household and change his appearance. Once you have him in your household, go into any wardrobe or mirror, enter Create-a-Sim, and remove the paper bag from his head.

Doing this, you will see a face under the bag. Under the paper bag, Jeb Harris is a young teen with brown hair, green eyes, and freckles. You can also use this opportunity to change the rest of his outfit or modify the paper bag into one with a smiling face, leaf, or other miscellaneous designs.

Who is Jeb Harris in The Sims 4?

In The Sims 4, Jeb Harris starts as a teenager with good and gloomy traits. He also has the Muser starting trait despite having the Soulmate aspiration. His most notable feature is wearing a paper bag on his head with a frown face at all times, alongside a patchy pair of overalls and no shoes.

Jeb Harris lives with four other Sims:

  • Francine Spencer, his grandmother
  • Cletus Harris, his father
  • Faye Harris, his mother
  • Gideon Harris, his younger brother

His family members have their own dreams and aspirations, with Cletus and Faye having the “Freegan” trait. Jeb Harris also inherited his goals from his grandmother, who has the Muser trait and Serial Romantic aspiration. Lastly, Gideon is a cheerful, social child, contrasting Jeb’s demeanor.

Why Does Jeb Harris Wear a Paper Bag?

There is little detailed information on why Jeb wears a paper bag on his head. Overall, the family has a peculiar situation, as described in the household description below:

Cletus and Faye found this heritage home in Grims Quarry for dirt cheap. Nothing seems wrong with it, and the Harris’ weren’t about to question a good deal. Cletus’ free-spirited mother soon joined them, completing the big, happy family. Mysteriously, their eldest son always wears a shameful bag on his head. Also, it doesn’t seem like any of them other than Faye has a job, but the house is well furnished. What is going on here?

With this in mind, there are a few speculations for why he wears the paper bag. He could be ashamed of his home, his family’s lifestyle, or their traits. There could also be an unspoken reason, such as an aspect of himself, his traits and aspirations, or a part of his past that isn’t explained in the description.

The Sims 4 is available on PC, Mac, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Be sure to check out where to find the spa in The Sims 4 to cheer up Jeb and enjoy a quiet, relaxing day with him.
