Fixes for the magic items were released with patch 1.42
If you experience any problems with these items after patching please post in this thread and let us know.
Thanks for your patience!
First of all, thank you for your patience while we were investigating these issues surrounding the magic items from The Sims 3 Store. We’ve identified fixes for several of the issues and will be including them in an upcoming Game Update. We’ll keep you updated on when to expect this. Below is a summary of what will be addressed with the new Game Update. There are a few additional functionalities that we’re still investigating that will not be addressed in the upcoming Game Update, but we’ll keep you posted with what we find.
• Lord Vladimir’s Magic Cauldron
o Sims can conjure components in the cauldron that will be needed for crafting within the Alchemy system
o Smelting of metals and cutting of gems has been fixed
• The Soothsayer’s Crystal Ball
o Telling fortunes and peering into the ball will give a job performance bonus if the Sim is a member of the Fortune Teller career
• Malleable Mimic Voodoo Doll
o You will be able to use the Voodoo Doll to curse other Sims and turn them into a zombie!
o You will be able to use the Voodoo Doll to bless zombie Sims and cure them of their affliction.
o You will be able to use a new interaction on the Voodoo Doll called “Transform!”. This is only available when a Voodoo Doll is bound to a Werewolf or a Fairy.
• Uber Toilet
o While not part of the Magic Set, the animations that were broken with Supernatural have now been fixed
We’ll keep you updated on when to expect these changes and thank you to everyone who helped the team track down these issues.

OMG!!!! "Transform!" on the Werewolves = Turn into Werewolf form and on Fairies, Fairy-form.Maybe fairies have a human form and a fairy form? Anyway, I can't wait to kill some fairies with witch magic! And can't wait for this EP!!!
This...is...FANTASTIC NEWS!!!! Thank you so much for posting this, I really appreciate it.
I am so happy to hear this news, now I have no regrets regarding the Store items. I love these four items a lot already and they're going to be even more fun to use when Supernatural is released, especially the Voodoo Doll by the sounds of it

Thank you for letting us know.
One question, though.
and Sims can conjure components in the cauldron that will be needed for crafting within the Alchemy system.
When you say "needed" do you mean that you can't make stuff without the caldron from the store? I don't have the caldron, and I just want to make sure that I won't be missing something thats really important.
