If you have not unlocked this quest yet it is because previous quests have to be completed first.
This quest unlocks at level 20 (once all previous quests have been completed) to create a Teen Idol. For this quest you need a teen, but you can only have one teen sim who is the teen idol!
You have 7 days to complete this quest if you want the premium instruments, you can still complete once the time is up and unlock the hobby and sim sign but you won’t get the prize for completing in time.
Times may vary depending on the star rating an item has
- Buy a stack of magazines- these can be found in the living room section of buy mode
- Make a teen read Teen Celebrity magazine- 4 minutes 30 seconds (click on the stack of magazines and choose the teen celebrity option-only a teen can read this!)
- Make a teen watch funny cat videos- 1 hour 40 minutes (on the computer)
- Send a Teenager to the park
- Create a plan to become famous- 6 hours 1o minutes (using the blackboard in the park on the pier)
- Buy a keyboard (from buy mode in the teen section)
- Write music (using the keyboard to find notes- cheapest keyboard takes an hour)
- Write 3 pieces of music ( you have to find a new note to be counted as a piece of music using the keyboard)
- Write 6 pieces of music (you need to use the bass guitar to find the next 3)
- Write 9 pieces of music (you need to use the drum kit to find the next 3)
- Write 12 pieces of music (you need to use the guitar to find the next 3)
- Write 15 pieces of music (you need to use the microphone to find the last 3)
You unlock different instruments with each line of notes you find, the higher star level the instruments have, the faster your sim will write music
Once you’ve found all the keyboard notes you will unlock the bass guitar (cheapest takes 2 hours to make music) then when you have found all the bass guitar notes you unlock the drum kit and so on..
Once you complete this quest you unlock the Sim Sign:
You will find the sim town sign near the premium residences by the estate agents- you need to upgrade it to get the chance to earn a bonus in revenue. When you upgrade it to level 3 you unlock the teen idol mansion- the first one is free! To upgrade the sim sign you need to collect the pieces, to find these pieces you can redo the collection and when you finish a line you get a piece or you can find them randomly when you do an action!
This post explains the Sim Sign And Teen Mansion in more detail
Prize: Premium Instruments
Is the prize worth it? NOTE the instruments you get as a prize are no longer free but they are 3 star instruments so you can complete a collection quicker (so you can hopefully complete the sim sign quicker) without buying the 3 star instruments that cost LPs (but you could always do that as there is no difference between premium and 3 star instruments apart from the cost)
Where can I find them? In the teen section of the buy mode.

How do I build the sim sign?
You need to complete the teen idol hobby several times, each time you complete a row in the hobby you earn a resource to build the sign, this post explains this in more detail
Some times are slightly different on my game, why is this?
Times may vary depending on the star rating of the item you are using, as the higher star rating an item has the quicker you will complete a goal
Some times are really off/ different goals show for me, why is this?
This will be because the quest has been updated recently, I try my best to keep these posts up to date but it is difficult as I cannot redo every quest each time the game is updated. If you notice any changes please let me know so I can update the post
NOTE: Last updated during the baby steps 2015 update.
