The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Catwalk Model


This is a post about the catwalk model hobby! I will tell you a little bit about how to do the hobby and the rewards you can get from it.

Who can catwalk?

Adults and Teens

Only one sim can do this hobby at a time.

How can you catwalk?

You need to firstly build the mall, then complete the sunset mall quest, then build area 2 and the catwalk area before you can start this hobby.

Where can you catwalk?

At the mall

What is the catwalk option?

  • Strut your stuff- 2 hours 15 minutes

What are the catwalk levels?

  1. Face Planter
  2. Two Right Feet
  3. Mover and Faker
  4. The Walk
  5. The Look
  6.  Blue Steel

What walks are there to collect?


What do you win?

First time you unlock the bowling hobby (the bowling area is not unlocked for a few days yet so the post will be up as soon as I have done it!) and with each row you complete you unlock new shops in the mall

Further times you earn 3LPs


What shops unlock and when?

Find the first row of walks to unlock:

  • Casual Clothing (adult female)- 90,000 6 hours
  • Wumple Zone (toddlers)- 100,000 6 hours

Find the second row of walks to unlock:

  • No small feet (adult male shoes)- 75,000 3 hours
  • Growing up (preteens)- 110,000 6 hours

Find the third row of walks to unlock:

  • Shoulder pads (adult female business wear)- 110,000 6 hours
  • Heel yr sole (adult female shoes)- 90,000 8 hours
  • Style for men (adult male)- 125,000 10 hours
  • Zip it (teen male)- 90,000 10 hours

Find the fourth row of walks to unlock:

  • Leap (teen female shoes)- 100,000 1 Day
  • Seniors Clothing (senior)- 110,000 8 hours
  • Sport and Skate (male teen shoes)- 70,000 8 hours
  • Simmer- Fun Fashion (teen female)- 80,000 1 Day


I can’t find one of the walks, any tips?

The only advice I can really give you is to keep going, that is the only way you can find them- there is no trick to it, its completely random.

Is it worth using the lucky spin?

I would say no, it doesn’t give you one that you need it just gives you one at random so really it is probably just a waste of LPs

How do I start the collection again?

Once you have finished the collection you can click start a new collection on the list to start over.

  1. This hobby is horrendous. : ( It takes 10.5 hours to complete each action (unless I’m missing something). At least it levels up quickly. Thanks for all you hard work and documenting all your findings!

  2. Congratulations, I’m still on my way. BTW I think I will do this hobbie just once in my entirely life😀😀😀

  3. I built the wumple zone store and it only has toddler outfits, which are adorable, but no baby stuff. Do those come later?.

  4. Is there a limited time to this?

  5. Love your posts! No joke. Could you post what each store unlocks? Ex: a visual on the clothes that you unlock by stores? And when is your next house contest?
    Thanks a lot.

  6. Is it easier to find the collectibles in this hobby (not getting same collectible too often) because it taken 10 hours? Or it’s just another mad-making hobby?

  7. Hey, thank you for your blog, it’s sooooo helpful!

    I have cleaned the area 4 at the mall and I have built all the shops, but when I try to start building the area 5 it says that I haven’t cleaned the area 4. I have searched it many times trying to find out what else I have to do, but I can’t find anything, everything seems fixed and clean. Any ideas of what am I not noticing?

  8. How do i get a preteen that lives alone get adopted?

  9. Does it help one level up for other Sims to watch the fashion show? I think cheers helped with Salsa, but watching takes a lot longer. Thank you so much for everything on this blog!

  10. I have a glitch…completed line 3 in the catwalk hobby and I was not awarded the four stores. Any advise? Thank you for your blog!

  11. can anyone answer this for me? On the catwalk, my teen sim wears this light pink dress with white polka dots. I love that so much. Are those clothes unlocked in any of the stores?

  12. First, Thank you for all of your help! Second, I’m confused by the reward for the hobby. I do want to do the bowling hobby next. So once I complete the modeling hobby the first time and it unlocks the bowling alley, do I have to clear all the areas and open all of the stores in the mall too before I can access the bowling alley? Limited funds and other quests – trying to budget my money…

  14. How to get silver life orb?

  15. Ok, So I FINALLY reach the mall quest and cleaned up area 1 & 2. Built the catwalk. My girl is on the 4th 10 hour walk. Does she have to do all 6 before I can open any stores? Does she have to keep walking until she gets all the slots filled? I’m kinda stumped at wth I’m doing because it doesn’t really throw ya a fricken bone with directions here lol. I keep thinking I might be wasting time on this walk THINKING after the final one i’ll be able to open something? Then find out I was doing it ALL wrong and wasted my time for nothing. 😑
    Any help would be much appreciated.

    • You have to find all 3 in each row to unlock new store, if you click on a store it says which row needs to be completed to unlock it
      But yes like every hobby the aim is to keep them doing the hobby until they complete it, you aren’t doing anything wrong, you just need to keep going.

  18. My sim is wearing this adorable red dress when modeling, can I buy it for her? Can male sims model?

  19. I’m doing this hobby and I saw on the mall page that the stores are SO expensive, so what stores should I get? Probably out of the early ones you get. Right now I have no teens or seniors. I’m getting preteens soon, though! Like tomorrow because I’m almost done with the quest.

    • My favourite is wumple zone but it isn’t the cheapest and that is just my option, on my guide to the mall post it shows you what clothes you unlock so you can either go for the stores with the nicest clothes or for the cheapest

  20. Thanks! I wanted to ask you about a pop up I just got in the sims freeplay. It says to begin the royal lineage quest to begin your journey forwards the Thorne. It must be for the royalty update. Do you think it will actually come with fairies like in the trailer?

  21. I’m able to do the Strut Your Stuff thing in 3h15m now… It was 10 hours something but now I’m on level 6 blue steel with an inspired sim… Maybe it’s the latest update…

  22. To speed this up, can I have a second Sim walking the catwalk in a neighboring town?
    Thank you so much for all the time you put into your blog. It’s so helpful!!!! 😇⭐️

  24. After you have a sim strut her stuff, it says complete 12 cat walks poses, what does that mean and what do you do??

  25. I am trying to unlock the bowling alley and it says i have construction requirement of “catwalk hobby grand prize won” what is the grand prize and how do i do it?

    • you need to complete the catwalk hobby for the first time to unlock the bowling alley.

      • I’ve already completed the hobby and recieved all poses and everything but it still says “catwalk hobby- grand prize won” as the requirement for the bowling alley.

      • I think the problem is because the latest quest required the catwalk hobby it didn’t recognise it as completing to unlock the bowling alley if that makes sense, this issue will probably be fixed in the next update.

      • I complete the catwalk hobby once. The bowling alley is still locked. What does that mean?

      • I think the problem is because the latest quest required the catwalk hobby it didn’t recognise it as completing to unlock the bowling alley if that makes sense, this issue will probably be fixed in the next update.

      • I have completed the catwalk hobby 5 times and the bowling alley still isnt unlocked?

      • I think the problem is because the latest quest required the catwalk hobby it didn’t recognise it as completing to unlock the bowling alley if that makes sense, this issue will probably be fixed in the next update.

  26. I don’t think mine is working. I completed the catwalk hobby a week ago and the bowling alley is still locked. I’m thinking about deleting this game…

    • I think the problem is because the latest quest required the catwalk hobby it didn’t recognise it as completing to unlock the bowling alley if that makes sense, this issue will probably be fixed in the next update.

      • Hi, i also have this problem. The bowling alley js still locked though i completed the catwalk hobby ages ago and built almost all the malls down. And there have been a few updates recently but its still the same, any suggestions? Thanks

      • all I can suggest is that you complete the catwalk hobby again, if you completed it during the event to get sleepwear then it wouldn’t have unlocked the bowling alley

  27. Oh poo. I only started sims Freeplay 2 weeks ago. I missed out!😥😥😥

  28. I built a store but I can’t find the clothes anywhere??
    (Also, your blog is amazing and very helpful! )

  29. Oh my gosh, you have saved me soooooo many times wait hold on lemme count 1,2,3,4,20,60,40000000 times, yep sounds about right!
    Anyway, what I’m trying to say is, you are a life saver, I have gone to many lengths to be creative and prosperous with the sims but it seems I could never beat someone as amazing as you! You are truly a life saving heroine! Thank you sooooo much for blogging, you will never understand how amazing you are to me and my fellow interneters! (Is that what we are called?! 😂)

  30. I finished the Sunset Mall quest and cleaned up the front area and catwalk area. When I click on the Casual Clothing store lock, it says I have to do the Catwalk Hobby 1st line of poses. I can’t do that until I open the store. What am I missing? Thanks for your help. You are AWESOME!

    • You don’t need to open that store to start the catwalk hobby. You need to complete the quest and clean area 1 and then you can build area 2 and build the catwalk
      You’re welcome. Thanks!

  31. during the catwalk quest you can have a different sim walking the catwalk in a different towns mall as long as they have the catwalk open. I had 1 sim in my town modeling and another sim of mine visiting a neighbors town & modeling there helping me collect ALL of the looks MUCH faster and completing the hobby in about 4 days. I think as long as u have a neighbor who has built what’s required for your hobbie you can have 2 sims collecting looks, toys, medals… Etc. I LOVE what you are doing here. I have referenced this site multiple times. Thank you

  32. Do the prices for the stores vary or is that their regular prices?

  33. Hi, I am having a bit of a panic, I’ve been on holiday for the last 2 weeks and whilst on holiday the Sleepwear Event started so I have started collecting them however on the 15th of August, after 3 days it is telling me the time has run out and I didn’t have the option of using a time token. Help would be much appreciated. Thank you
