The Sims: Makin' Magic
gets you going when a mysterious man drops off some items at your doorstep, including a cauldron, a wand, and some spell components. From here you can start producing more spell components in your house like it was a meth lab and either sell them in Magic Town or use them for your own good/evil intentions.
Similar to previous expansions, Makin' Magic not only adds new items and elements of gameplay, but it also delivers a new area to explore called Magic Town. This area is full of shops where you can buy new items to beef up your magical repertoire, and is also home to wizards duels and places where you can perform shows, similar to that in Superstar. And, keeping with tradition, you can tear down this area and build it anew if you so desire.
Not only does Makin' Magic give you a bunch of new magical items to tool around with, but also included in the game is some of the best material from TheSims.com. Pet skins, mistletoe, bar lights, and many others are all included on the CD for your Sims' pleasure.
