Seniors live their golden ages. From level 21, adults become seniors if they have their birthday. However, the player needs to finish the Seniors quest first. Starting February 2014, they can have a new hobby, quilting. They will also have new pets, such as birds. They can play bingo in Mystery Island and can win simoleons. But seniors do have a lifespan. A senior can pass away by a Grim Reaper when he/she is ready to pass away. It does not need a cake.
To create a senior you need to have completed the Seniors Quest. You will then be able to bake a birthday cake on a stove which takes a day and costs 5LPs. Once the birthday cake is made click on it and then you can click on your adult and select the option to have birthday, they will then age into a senior. If you have completed the life dreams and legacies quest then you no longer need to bake birthday cakes, they will age automatically.
Seniors can do the following hobbies: Fishing, Cooking, Quilting, Bird Feeding, Dog Obedience, Pinball Enthusiast, Storyteller and Survivalist.
