  1. Thank you for all the help thru this blog post!!! I finally have the bear which is timely since my baby will become a toddler already :)) I have a question though, unrelated to this, in the Raiders of the lost artifacts quest. did the time limit for the prize extend to 2 days? It says 2 days ’til quest reward is gone…. weird since all the guides I saw said it only has 1 day for completion….? Anyways, thanks for all!!!

    • You’re welcome!
      Yes apparently they have changed it to 2 days now, I think its because the big book of stuff takes a day to read anyway, so really it wasn’t possible to complete in time unless you started that task early

  2. Thank you so much for all the help. And I agree I was hoping for like one couple hours quest Christmas day but at least they gave some long ones so you can set your sim to do that then go enjoy your family. Plus it was only 12 hours worth. Some of the days were 14 to 16 hours.

  3. OMG I finally got my living teddy bear! This was so helpful, thank you soo much !! You’re awesome gurl

  4. Hi! What’s the time limit to get the teddy bear? 9 am con the 26th? The thing is yesterday night I left one sim delivering gifts, but today the quest wasnt fullfilled so now I’m doing it again. This is the second time that happens during the xmas quest! Today is 25th 10:25, I’m in America, so There are some hours of difference between you and I. Thank you for your blog…it has made my sim life experience so much easier! Merry xmas!

  5. So I did all these days and now I have to CALL A FRIEND, which I have been avoiding doing so I won’t start the life & legacies quest. There is no way to skip with life points on this quest, so I guess I don’t get the bear. : (
    Waste of time.

  6. Yes it is cute & worth it! I got mines & thanks for your guide on getting QUICK Lp’s using the cooking hobby with 10 sims in a room with 10 ovens, 10 toasters & 10 sinks. πŸ˜€βœŒ

  7. If I will not able to finish the quest before the time limits expire,could I still buy the bear in the shop?..”…I currently I have 569,182 money so it means that I do afford it.

  8. The goals are so long I’m on day 9 and I really wannted a living teddy bear😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

  9. Hi sorry to bother on Xmas!! I was just wondering if you get the teddy bear forever or it goes away in a limited time. Thanks!

  10. hello again! I just want to thank you again so much for a very helpful blog. my sim is currently dancing w/ Santa and I have one question about the bear; do you have to take care for its needs? Like will the bear become hungry or something? thanks in advance! (:

  11. Merry Christmas, weightlessmagic! Your posts have helped me a great deal this past year. Best wishes for 2015, keep up the good work!

  12. If I complete this after midnight, will I still get the teddy bear? I just have to dance and fly home

  13. I only have 13 hours left, And onlyrics one LP, What do I do because I know I won’t be able to finish it in time :,(

  14. I just started playing this for about five days. I’ve tried to do as much of the quest as possible but I’m so not going to have it finished in time. Does the time limit actually matter or can I still get it after the time runs out? I’m not sure if you would have any idea but I thought I would ask. Also thanks so much for the help!

  15. Was it worth it? NO!😑😑😑😑😑😑why can’t adults play patty cake and hug the bear such a disappointment 😑😑😑

  16. Great presentation
    I think if more people knew about this there wouldn’t be so many people complaining they couldn’t finish especially those in later time zones

  17. Thank you so much for helping us through this quest. It really made the process easier. I usually get bored with quests, but this one was fun all the way through. Most of the prizes were great IMHO, with the only exception being the failure to provide outside doors decorated with wreaths or greens. (Who doesn’t decorate their door when they decorate for Xmas?????) As for the teddy, the jury’s still out for me. Can’t control him, so he ends up stealing food, using the computer, and watching TV. Like the most annoying houseguest ever. He’s in inventory now, but I’ll give him another try tomorrow. In any event, it has been fun. Happy Christmas!

  18. I just want to thank you for writing all the tasks! I checked your blog everyday just to see how long the tasks would take so I can one myself and complete them all. I found it a bit ridiculous how long some of them were. We have lives outside this game EA dang! Anyways thank you again!

  19. Hi- I’m so happy and just want to say thank you for your amazing blog and all your advice. I unlocked the bear and it’s really cute and I just love the mittens. It is living in my toddler Shannon’s house, and it is all because of you. Thank you and Merry Christmas, keep up the good work! If you want a pic, just ask.

  20. I couldn’t finish it in time, but Santa left 10 lps under the christmas tree for me at least πŸ™‚ I could have gotten one more day to finish it with 24 lp but I didn’t have that much at the moment…

    Thank you so much for the post they have been really helpful!

  21. I’m assuming it only takes seconds to fly home in the sleigh? My sim is dancing and he’ll have 1 hour left to finish the quest when he’s done dancing, so I’m trying to calculate whether he’ll be able to finish the last task in time.

  22. Hey, I’m in 8th day in this quest. It said thatI have reach time limit, so to make it longer by 1 day I need to buy it for 24 LPs. Is there any tricks to complete this quest? The teddy seems cute and nice to have

  23. Can you get the bear still even if you don’t finish the quest on time cause I’m running behind a few hours and I’m scared I won’t be able to get the bear

  24. Hi, do you know if we are still able to buy the living bear if we weren’t able to complete the task?

  25. I may not able to get the bear because I’m stuck in asking elves for help,but I really really really thank you because you served as my walkthrough in this quest.But Santa gave me 10 Lps so Thank you verymuch😊

  26. First I want to thank you for the advice that we provide the sims .
    Now I have a little problem : After a day after completing quest I received the Living teddy bear . After I positioned it in the desired room we tried to communicate with him , but went only option ” Talk to” no option ” Cuddle ” or ” Pat -a- cake” …. Why ?
    Please help me!

  27. The bear is so darn cute. I love watching it walk around my Sim’s house, interacting with things.
    Thanks so much for your guides, I could not have gotten half the quests done with you!

  28. I got the living bear in time and this morning he is gone. Any idea where he went and how i get him back! Love your site btw!

  29. Great blog u got there, it helped a lot through out the xmas quest and I always refer to ur blog for any issue regarding the Sims freeplay. You mentioned in one of the comments that u make lps through the cooking hobby .. May I know how exactly ??

    Thanks in advance

    • Thanks!
      Once the bread winner quest has been completed you can do the cooking hobby. Get a stove, counter and toaster in a house for each sim you want to do this hobby, I use 6. Put them all in the same room but space out each workspace.
      Then click cooking and select cheese and tomato on toast- 1 minute, with lots of sims you should be able to get all pieces in the collection within an hour.
      You will get 5LPs then make sure you click restart collection once you have all the pieces to start again.
      And clean up the plates as you go along or they will just build up.

  30. Was the first bear actually free? Because I’m pretty sure I lost 3LP for something right after I clicked “Tap to Continue” on the Congratulations! page. I didn’t do anything else that could have possibly used any LPs. I’m fine with it, just curious.

  31. Is there any way to get my LPs back? I spent all of them on day 11 only to find that there is another day.

  32. I didn’t complete the quest 😭 but I got 10 lps for trying 😊 so that made up my Christmas

  33. Hello thank you For doing this blog I find it very helpful I have one question did they give a Christmas table this year I looked everywhere and can’t find it not even in my inventory and I thought I had a few. It’s not even in the featured items .

  34. Hello. Hope you had a great christmas. Thank you so much for updating this site so regularly, it’s so helpful. Would you mind me asking on the photo for day 8 (the one with the boy’s bedroom) there is like a garland at the end of the bed across the wall, could I ask what this is please? Thanks again.
