The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Jester


Once you complete the Archery hobby and unlock the gallery one of your adult sims can complete the jester hobby.

To complete the jester hobby you need to click on the jester’s chest in the castle gallery (that you unlocked in the archery hobby) and select the option:

  • Dance- 4 hours 30 minutes

When you start you will only have this first option, you need to find all 3 different dance moves to complete the first row in the jester collection to unlock the mime option on the chest, you then need to find the 3 mimes to unlock the tambourine option and find the 3 tambourine moves to unlock the final option which is flags to find the last three to complete the collection


  • Dance- 4 hours 30 minutes (first row)
  • Mime- 3 hours 30 minutes (second row)
  • Tambourine- 4 hours 30 minutes (third row)
  • Flags- 5 hours 30 minutes (last row)

Once you complete the collection for the first time you can pick an option on the chest in any order but you will still need to do each option to find the different moves to complete each row

  • Joker
  • Harlequin
  • Court Jester
Fool, Acrobat and Gymnast


  • Fool
  • Acrobat
  • Gymnast
Bard, Minstrel and Troubadour


  • Bard
  • Minstrel
  • Troubadour
Basic Swing, Zig Zags and Spirals


  • Basic Swing
  • Zig Zags
  • Spirals
You can now complete the collection!

After the time has passed come back and click the exclamation mark above your sims head to find one of the jester collectibles in that row. You still level up in this hobby but the hobby level up percentage isn’t important as the jester collectibles don’t unlock depending on your level, when you finish a row of jester collectibles you will unlock the ability to find the jester moves in the next row.

The table below shows you the level up reward that your sims will receive when they level up in this hobby:

1 Beginner
2 Novice 250XP
3 Intermediate 500XP
4 Skilled S750
5 Advanced 10,000 Town Value
6 Master Fool 1LP

You won’t find a new collectible each time, you will get repeats, if this happens just keep going, you will find them eventually! If it is still taking too long you can use the lucky spin on the row where you cannot find the item, this will cost LPs, when you click on the LP button it will clear the row and give you a random collectible on that row so you aren’t guaranteed a new item (you will get back any other collectibles you already had in that row) Need to earn some LPs to use the lucky spin?


The completed jester collection is shown below, once you complete the collection you need to click ‘start a new collection’ at the top of the hobby collection screen, this clears the board so you can complete the collection again to earn more rewards (you will only get the option to restart the hobby collection when you have completed the collection):

The first time you complete a row you will unlock a new option to find the next row of jester moves, further times you will earn XPs when you complete a row in the hobby but to complete the collection you need to find all 12 of the collectibles

The rewards for completing this collection are the throne room and 3LP:

  • The first time you complete the jester collection you unlock the throne room which costs S300,000 and takes a day to build, this unlocks the upstairs of the castle, once built you unlock royalty clothes and the ability to issue decrees on the royal throne on the second floor of the castle ( read my castle post for more information)


  • From the second time onwards each time you complete the collection you will earn 3LP

      • Please help, ive done everything for the diy homes patio quest, I left the diy house (the last step for the quest) and nothing happened, I dont even have the option to go back to the house, it shows that I have 96% completed and it still says to leave the diy house… which I already did, so lost, no idea what to do

  1. Hi, I have this social task saying that I need to find this treasure using a neighbours dog to bury it up, but no one has a dog. I don’t want to skip it because I am saving up my lifestyle points for a house :-/ Do you know how to do it? Thanks

    Sent from my iPad


  2. I’ve completed mime, flags and tambourine it’s brought up dance but I’m not being awarded anything clicked on dance 10 times now but the last row isn’t filling up so I can’t complete hobby?!

      • I have done the flags 10 times and nothing on the bottom row has been awarded. All other rows are complete. Any suggestions ?

      • You must have found at least one if you have done flags as that is the only option that unlocks items on the last row, it won’t unlock items on another row. Try doing it again and let me know the exact move you win for doing the action

  3. I somewhat disagree about whether or not you should use a lucky spin. I used it and it worked I also used it for one of the horse thingys as well and it worked! Lol but I must admit I had tried to get the final pieces for a loooong while each time before I just went ahead and used it.

  4. GWG – you’re right about the last level – I’ve been doing the 5 h 30m “flags” for well over 10 days non stop with 2 different sims now, the first one aged into a senior and i still didn’t get the final level, my current jester is about to age as well. very frustrating.

  5. Hi! When I go to try the Jester hobby (with the same Sim I did the archery hobby with), it says my Sim will forget everything about the other hobby. This makes sense, but my question is this: Can ANY Sim become royalty, or just the one that becomes the jester? Do I have to use the same sim as the archery quest? Not quite sure about this process.

  6. I cant seem to do the jester hobby. I have built the castle and completed the archery hobby but get no option for jester hobby?

  7. Umm hi well your blog is super helpful and I finished the lovey dovey balcony quest 2 weeks ago and the basement one still isn’t popping up please help😭

      • Oh yes. I miss one last item in “flags” and have been practicing my sim for 10+ days. My sim will be senior, old and alzheimers before long (and so will i, it seems).
        Nevertheless: thank you very much for your site and i am sorry to hear that you lost your game.
        Your site is a bliss to read and very structured 🙂
        Have a very nice day 🙂

  8. Is this like teen idol? You must do flags for the flag level, dance for dance level? I’m going to try that.

  9. I have been stuck on the jester hobby. The final box in the dance row. Ive had several sims try to finish that so they can get to flags row. A google search showed i am not alone in this. Frustrating. Also having same issue with mall fashion shoppers.
    I took a sim to a neighbors town and it was allowing them to jester so i am going to see about having 2 sims jester.
