  • There are also new time limited prizes when you complete the 9 day pregnancy event in the time limit and earn the baby bonus from the 20th to the 24th May:

If you start the 9 day pregnancy event anytime during the time frame you have the chance of earning the maternity items in that pack if you complete the event in the time limit, for example if you start a pregnancy event on the 24th May and complete in the time limit you will earn the items above

ATTENTION: Windows Phone Players

Unfortunately Firemonkeys have decided to stop updating the game for Windows Phones so the Easter 2017 update will be the last. I don’t know why they have decided to do this- I just hope this doesn’t mean they will be stopping updates on any of the other platforms!

You will still be able to play the game, but you won’t receive any of the new content including future events

You can read the post from Firemonkeys here:


As you will no longer be receiving updates I have created a page containing all the quests goals as they are in this last update so you can still have a correct guide to completing the quests. BUT please remember that quests will change in the future so please don’t comment on a quest post saying it is incorrect if you are playing the game on a Windows Phone.


If you will no longer be playing the game then I would just like to thank you for stopping by, hopefully I was some help! All the best!
