All characters are made with a chibi-style design. With the exception of Robots, Trevor and Nicole, all sims have a badge, signalling what interest they have. Each characters interests corresponds to their house, their belongings and their psychology- e.g. spooky, would generally correspond to a Gothic mindset, however this can change from time to time. All inclusive characters are found here: Portal:Characters in MySims Safari. However there are also exclusive sims appearing in each version; Wii U, 3DS, GCN and Wii.

IGN rated the game 8.3/10, appraising the use of colour and diversity, especially when creating the islands. They also said the game was a good difficulty for both young and old players, but said that the art style was quite childish and some of the minigames were relatively easy. The game fared well on the international market, with 800,000 copies being sold in Japan on the first six months of availability, and over 1.8 million copies sold in Europe in the same time. In North America, the game was recieved positively and gained 2.4 million copies in the first four months, and was particularly strong on the 3DS version.
