The Thinking Cap is an aspiration reward that was added in The Sims 2. It is also known as the "Thinking Person's Silly-Hat-With-A-Light bulb", which is a fairly good description of it. Silly or not, it works.

If a Sim in gold or platinum aspiration puts it on, it lights up, and the Sim will learn faster while wearing it. It will continue to work even if the Sim drops into green aspiration while wearing it. However, if a Sim in green or red aspiration puts it on, it may fail. When it fails, it sputters, and the Sim will pass out and lose a skill point.

If a Sim wears a Thinking Cap while teaching toddler skills, the toddler will learn faster. Also, if a sim feeds their toddler Smart Milk whilst wearing the cap the toddler will learn skills twice as fast. It is rumored that wearing a Thinking Cap will help a teen do homework faster.[confirmation needed]

A Thinking Cap is good for 24 hours of use.
