Prize: Teacup Pig Pet

Where can I find them? You can find the pig pet in the pet store

Cost? The first one is free after that they cost 100LP each

Is it worth it? Yes! It is soo cute! You cannot feed the pig though, you can only scratch the pigs tummy and pet the pig and there are no items currently for a pig to use 

Watch my step by step video of the quest here:


please read before asking

How do I start this discovery quest?
Once you have completed the simtown express quest you can build downtown high to start this quest

Why can’t I do this discovery quest yet?
You cannot do more than one discovery quest at the same time, if you are currently on another one (the list can be found here) you will not be able to do this one until that one is completed

Can I do discovery quests at the same time as a main quest?
Yes you can

Do I have to do this quest?
If you don’t start building downtown high you don’t have to do this quest at all but if you have already started building or started this quest you need to complete it before you can move on to the next quest

I haven’t started this quest yet, will it still be available when I want to do it?
Yes it will be, you can choose to start it whenever you like

How do I send my sim to downtown high?
Go to downtown high and click on the whistle next to a sim who isn’t busy on the simtracker, this post explains more about the simtracker

How do I call the principal?
Click on the sim with the plumbob above their head to get the option

For ‘photograph Vernon’ will it work with a horse or parrot?
No, you have to use a dog, cat or another pet brought from the pet store to complete this

What do I get if I complete this quest in the time limit?
You unlock the teacup pig

What does the pig do?
They don’t really do anything! They don’t find money like dogs or cats

Is there anything in the pet section for pigs?
No, there isn’t

What happens if I don’t complete in the time limit, can I still finish this quest?
Yes you have to finish it to unlock the class clown hobby before you can move onto the next quest

I didn’t complete in the time limit, can I restart the quest?
No, you cannot redo quests

Can I still get the prize if I don’t complete in the time limit?
No, the only way to get the limited time prizes is by completing the quest in the time limit

I don’t like this quest! Can I just skip it?
No, you have to complete this quest before you can move onto the next one now that you have started it, if you don’t start building downtown high you don’t have to do this quest but once it is built the quest will begin

Some times are slightly different on my game, why is this?
Times may vary depending on the star rating of the item you are using, as the higher star rating an item has the quicker you will complete a goal

Some times are really off/ different goals show for me, why is this?
This will be because the quest has been updated recently, I try my best to keep these posts up to date but it is difficult as I cannot redo every quest each time the game is updated. If you notice any changes please let me know so I can update the post

This quest unlocks the class clown hobby, does the time limit start straight away once I have completed this quest?
Yes, the time limit for the hobby starts straight away once this quest is complete, you can click no when the hobby pop up appears but this does not stop the timer going down

  1. Do you know why the requirements are different to build items around town? The new Downtown High says it requires $3M to build for me, but only $850,000 in yours?

    • The price of the high school varies depending on how many other businesses you have already built, the price increases for every business you build. It also increases for every workplace you build and house you build but building a house doesn’t increase the price it costs to build a workplace and so on.

  2. I don’t have an option to build a school. My hospital is built. Do I need to build the penthouse apts. first?

  3. Hey there! Just updated my game tonight, saw this teacher’s pet quest when I went into the game, but I accidentally pressed “no” canceled this quest, now I can’t find the quest anymore. Is there any way I can find this discovery quest? Thanks!!

  4. Should I start this quest if I don’t have a teen? I’m asking because I know when you complete this quest you said the class clown quest starts right away, which gives us 7 days to complete. A teen is needed for that new hobby right?

  5. Can you actually enroll teenage sims in this school and watch them there (kinda like you do with professional workplaces like police and movie star)? Or is it just a public area? Also your blog is amazing, it has helped me so much xoxo

  6. Too bad there aren’t more lengthy options for pet interactions, especially these cuties! Only four minutes of cuddles, and you can’t even pick them up? :C I hope they will get cute accessories at least, some time in the future 🤷🏽‍♂️

  7. So I now have to watch a sports event on tv but I don’t get that option! It doesn’t show up on any of my tv’s in different houses! What to do now?!

  8. Hi! I just wanted to know how to get toddler castle beds? I’ve beealn searching for days now and your my only hope.. Plz help!!

    • Azajah Im assuming weightlessmagic has already answered this for you, but just in case anyone else is wondering the same thing like I was, I just wanted to let you know that I found them in the store that sells the infant/toddlers/preteen/teen items (the one you have to click on from the map, near the clothing store, hair salon). For some reason there are a few items sold there that do not show up in the furniture tab when I’m on a house lot. There are also really adorable infant night tables and nursery dressers there, that (at least for me) do not show up under the furniture tab where everything else is.

      Also just a random comment to weightlessmagic–I’m disappointed that the teens can’t go to the downtown school. I don’t understand what the point was of paying to build all the rooms, when really the entire second floor is only there for show! There’s the hobby, but it’s pretty boring and after the first time through there isn’t much incentive. It would be way more fun if the students could actually go there like the adult sims can with the new careers. I would love to be able to send them to an actual school, send even be able to send my teacher adult sims there to teach! I know technically you can do that, but you don’t get anything out of it, so you might as well just send them to the sim town school where they can actually earn something! What are your thoughts on this?

      • Oh you mean the royal pink bed! Yes for some reason that one only shows up in the childrens store and not the toddler section of the home store.
        The table and dresser should be in the baby and toddler sections of the home store

        Yes it is disappointing that they cannot actually go to school there, I was hoping they would be able to!

  9. Once this school is built will the teens attend school here or will then attend class at the high school in the suburbs.

  10. Does the teacup pig have a food bowl? Do they eat from a dog food bowl? Also, do they need a bed?
    Also, thank you so much for all you wisdom! You are always my “go to” when I have a question. This is the first time I had to ask something that wasn’t already posted, pretty good odds! xoxo

  11. Hi there! I don’t have a pet or even the pet store. How would I be able to complete the photograph a pet action? Would a horse work? Or do I have to build the pet store? Thanks!

    • There is the option on a horse, I can’t get it to work though, it just appears with blue footprints but you may have more luck! If it doesn’t work you will need to build the pet store unfortunately.

  12. How many sims can you have doing the class clown hobby to start? Like, the Fashion design hobby, you can only have 5 sims doing it.
    Note: Even with 5 sims doing it, I still didn’t get the timed part of it complete 😦

    • A bird in the cage doesn’t work but there is the option on a horse, I can’t get it to work though, it just appears with blue footprints but you may have more luck! If it doesn’t work you will need to build the pet store unfortunately.

  13. 100LPS EACH?!?! I get the first one is free which is great plus they’re really cute, but cmon, who has enough to pay 100 lifestyle points for a second piggie? Aww 🙁😩

  14. Thank you weightlessmagic for your advice and information on this particular building and subsequent hobbies but I do feel it seems rather pointless just to win a cute ornamental piggy. If the teenagers can’t go there why spend your sims hard earned cash on a building that you can’t do anything with and to be honest I very rarely go downtown anyway preferring to stay around my own town and islands … anyone else feel that way?

  15. Hi – just a quick question about the pig’s happiness meter. No matter how many times I pet it, the bar never goes beyond half full. I’ve tried both options. It’ll go below half, and I can get it to half full, but no higher. Not a major issue, just wondering if anyone else has noticed this – or is it just me?! Thanks!

  16. Hi, I love your blog, it’s SOO helpful! Anyway, I was wondering, if you go to Promotions ‘R’ Us, then there is a Teacher’s Blackboard (something like that, anyway) and it says career under that. What does that mean, as in, what can it be used for? Is there a teaching job?

  17. I’m playing this quest and I’ve been told to build the pet store which costs too much. I don’t see it in the walk-through for the quest on your blog

    • Did that goal appear after you checked the coaches email? You need a pet to be able to photograph them for the next task, I already had a pet store so I never had this appear myself, I will add a note to the post that you need a pet for this quest.

  18. I started the teachers quest awhile ago but didn’t finish, but won’t let me continue. I want to do the maternity quest
