Great deal for great fun!

I got this collection just for the Mansion & Garden Stuff pack because it was cheaper than buying the stuff pack alone interestingly. However, I can still review on the content of this collection.
The stuff packs are pretty explanatory and what really matters is whether you're interested in what that particular stuff pack has to offer. I personally loved the Mansion & Garden stuff pack because it added the ability to alter the wall height of the particular item you're putting on the wall. I'm also big on building and landscaping so this was a good stuff pack for me. The Family Fun stuff pack interested me when I first got it, but it's very intensive on bright and kiddy colors. If you were looking for an expansion on decorating your child's room then this is for you.
As for the expansion pack included in this collection, pets have always been my favorite expansion to the Sims franchise, whether it be 1, 2, or 3. I love the addition of cats and dogs, and it's great that the dogs can come in large or small breed varieties. While I wish you could have more hands-on control of your pets, it's quite easy to direct them given you have a human Sim in your household. Concerning the pet careers... after I'd developed a family overrun by cats and/or dogs, it was a great way to give my stay-at-home Momma Sim a chance to have the house all to herself. The income they can generate is meager unless you want to put in the time and effort to train them, but it's another interesting aspect of the Sims 2 Pets universe. I wish there were more ways to interact with kittens and puppies, and for them to interact with each other, but that stage of life is so short I suppose I can't complain.
Overall, though, I quite enjoy the collection and everything it has to entail.
