The tropical volcano finally appeared in the Garden store and Boutique. We all knew it would be a cash coin item but I expected it to be around 15 cc. Not 25 as it’s shown here! &^%$*@! Seriously… I feel like they’re ripping us off!
Sure, the volcano is big, looks cool, has flowing lava, and shivers a bit and belches out a puff of gray smoke every few seconds. But I don’t think it’s worth 25 cc, limited or not.
At least something made me smile today. Treehorn finally found her first Forest Aquarium! Woohoo! Took a while but it was worth it. :) [Link to Complete Treasure Hunt Loot]
Although I collected individual pictures of the flowers as I grew them one by one, I didn’t bother making a Colorful Flowers collection because Pet Society World made a wonderful reference for all of us (included in the Giant List of Pet Society Guides). But last night, Treehorn finally got the aqua thistle – weeks after I started badgering my friends and family to send those free colorful flower seeds.
And Treehorn’s Colorful Flowers collection is finally complete! :D
See how nice they look in her garden:
Note: I used to puzzle about other bloggers using watermarks on their images. Now I understand why. This week, I’ve seen not just one but two three people use my images of the Treasure Loot collection in their blog and forum post without any link to or even a mention of Pet Society Cat. Two pretended that they collected all the items themselves while the other emblazoned his own blog watermark on the pics. I occasionally use other players’ images, too, but I always credit them by adding a link or the name of their blog below the image.
Anyone is free to use my images. But please credit this blog. Especially when it comes to collections like this one. After all, it took some effort to make them. Thanks! :)
The other night, I logged in to find four gifts. I was wondering who would give Treehorn so many and when she finally opened them, she found all the 4 mystery items this week: the colorful lucky charm, red festive drum, pink roses flower pot, and pink lotus candle.
And who does Treehorn owe this incredible show of generosity? Mikan from Pet Society Dream! :) She made sure to visit Mikan and give her a huge thank you hug.
As for me, Treehorn’s owner, I miss reading blog posts from PSD. The blog about Mikan has always been one of my favorite Pet Society blogs. I know she’s really busy in the forum but maybe someday she’ll return to blogging. :)
This is more than a day late. Sorry, been a bit busy. :)

This is a guide to treasure hunting in Pet Society. For the complete list of Town Forest, Enchanted Forest and Ancient Egypt Treasure Hunt loot, please check this post.
Here is the FAQ provided by the Pet Society blog:
What is Treasure Hunt?
Treasure Hunt is a new feature that lets you dig for treasure. Currently there are three areas where you can dig: the Town Forest, Enchanted Forest and Ancient Egypt.
What items can I find?
Items that you find in Treasure Hunt are not available anywhere else. You can find a number of different kinds of treasure. In the Town Forest, there are 10 cool treasures, plus the extremely rare Forest Aquarium. Can you find it? What about the special weekly themed item? Collect all seven pieces for the Dinosaur Skeleton, then display it proudly in your room.
Can treasures be gifted?
Yes, you can send treasures to a friend, just like normal items.
How much are treasures worth?
The value of each treasure in the Town Forest ranges from 50 coins up to 3,500 for the Forest Aquarium.
How do I get free shovels?
Every day you get up to 5 free shovels to use that day. If you don’t use them, you lose them! Of course any shovels that you have bought are yours to use any day you like.
Why don’t I see where I dug before?
Whenever you leave the Town Forest, the map will reset. You of course keep whatever treasures you found, but will have to start digging again in a different part of the forest.
Will there be more treasures and map sites?
Start your treasure hunt!
One can either click the hunt for treasure button on your playing screen or choose the World Map from the town map.
Area I – Town Forest
1) Check your treasure screen & click “Dig Now”
2) Buy shovels
It costs 300 coins per 5 shovels. 5 shovels = 5 digs. Not cheap, especially since it might take a lot of digging to find one treasure.
3) Start digging!
Click on a square and start digging. Occasionally, you will will find clues like “Treasure very close” or “Treasure is nearby”. There will also be Xs and ?s to help you guess where they’re hidden.
4) Collect your treasures
As soon as you get 4 treasures, the session will stop and you will be prompted if you want to dig again.
Area II – Enchanted Forest
The Enchanted Forest is a new area in the treasure, released on 25 June 2010.
1) Unlock the forest by building a hot air balloon
3) Buy/Ask for the materials
From the Official Blog:
… you can enlist the help of your friends to assist you in obtaining each of the required materials (Fabric, Rope and Rattan Sticks) as they are new Collaborative Items, alternatively you can choose to purchase the materials with Playfish Cash. Once you have all the required materials select “Build” to complete your Hot Air Balloon!
It’s much better to ask for the materials from friends. I got all 15 items in less than 2 days. That way, you get it for free. Accepting requests and gifts from friends would have to be done through the Facebook confirmation page.
4) Build your hot air balloon
5) Start digging & collect your treasures!
Area III – Ancient Egypt
Ancient Egypt is a new area in the treasure, released on 8 July 2010.
1) Go to Ancient Egypt from the Treasure Map
2) Dig for Treasures
3) Collect them all!
This guide will be updated every time there is a new addition. I hope you found this brief guide useful. I’m really excited about this new feature. What do you think? :D
Two of the items are TWS, meaning they’ll be gone next week. Better hunt for thoss mystery items before they disappear! :) These weeks items are: colorful lucky charm [TWS] (CMB), red festive drum [TWS] (BMB), pink roses flower pot (GMB), and pink lotus candle (GMB).
The new free gifts are: pink fish lucky charm and mouse plushie.
There is also a new feature called Treasure Hunt. Read this post for more details.
It took me forever to get all of these! In the end, I had to bribe my little sister with three dresses and a crown so she would send me her toy room, which was the only one missing from the collection. :D
The doll’s house mystery eggs are available for sale in the Mystery store for 600 coins each.
(resale price – 233 coins)
sweet cat doll – 283 coins resale price
sporty cat doll – 283 coins resale price
mummy cat doll – 283 coins resale price
daddy cat doll – 283 coins resale price
granny cat doll – 283 coins resale price
baby bunny doll – 333 coins resale price
sweet bunny doll – 283 coins resale price
geeky bunny doll – 283 coins resale price
mummy bunny doll – 283 coins resale price
daddy bunny doll – 283 coins resale price
Update: Playfish will fix the glitch.
In the comments section of my Vacation Tickets post, a number of players reported that they did not receive the tent and the bellydancer’s outfit (top and pants) when they bought the Arabian Nights package. When I purchased it last Wednesday, 2 June, I didn’t encounter any problems so it must be a fairly recent glitch.
I hope Playfish will fix it ASAP. After all, it’s not a cheap package at 6,500 coins and the players will be cheated out of 3 of the nicest things in the package.
Have you purchased the Arabian Nights package and got the same glitch?
Pet Society Update for 4 June 2010: Hideeni’s Football Look, New Mystery Box Items, Free Gifts, and the Romantic Icefish
New Mystery Box Items
We have the bunny teapot (BMB) , floral garland (GMB), and donut headpiece (GMB).
New Free Gifts
The free items this week are really pretty. There’s the bright rose wedding headpiece and the pink swan plushie, which is a twin of the white swan plushie from the gold mystery box.
New Fish: the Romantic Icefish!
The romantic icefish can be caught using any bait. :)
Hideeni Does Football
Hideeni is out and about in his charming football outfit and is giving away flags of competing countries from the World Cup. Make sure to collect all the flags as soon as you can because a country’s flag will disappear once their team is eliminated. (I love this Pet Society-real life sports tie-in.)
|USA Flag||Argentina Flag|
|Holland Flag||France Flag||Chile Flag|
|Mexico Flag||Ivory Coast
|Italy Flag||Spain Flag||Brazil Flag|
|Portugal Flag||Australia Flag||Germany Flag|
The mystery ristorante box can be purchased in the Mystery Store for 175 coins each. After opening, the food items can be resold at 58 coins each. There are 9 items:
These are only available until the 13th of June 2010 so if you want to collect all items, do it now! :) Good luck with finding all of them.
Note: Feel free to use the collection images but please credit this blog. Thanks.
What do you think of the vacation ticket with the hefty price tag? It’s available in the Market store under Cool Stuff.
Of course, your pet doesn’t really leave Pet Society. He/she will receive a number of items that fit in the specified theme. Treehorn and Spike helped me take pictures of the Vacation Ticket packages.
All packages are quite expensive even if one tries to add up the average prices of each item type. I think I’ll keep the packages for Treehorn’s collection. :)
Treehorn was in the garden and I was taking a picture of the corsage pots when this message popped up:
Hmmm… what could it be? Is it the rumored fabulous thing that Pet Society Philippines blogged about? I clicked Accept.
The box is so much bigger than my pet! You can barely see Tree’s toes peeking from underneath the gigantic crate. And, finally, the surprise:
I was so pleased to finally get the briar rose wall fountain. :D I wasn’t able to get enough helpers for the pink tepee, the totem pole or even the wig so the fountain is my first collaborative item from Pet Society. Speaking of the mystery corsage pots, they have finally started to grow. Remember the glitch that started last month?
Looks like I’m going to have a red rose corsage. Two of them! I already have one so if you want these, I can send them to you if you like. Just comment on this post. :)
The tapefish is this week special (TWS) fish, which means that it will be gone by next week. One can catch it with any bait just like regular fishes.
Treehorn used corn and it took 6 tries before she caught the tapefish. It looks like it just escaped from an 80’s rock and roll star’s boom box but I think it would feel very much at home among Tree’s other strange fishes in the aquarium room.
My little sister loves to play Pet Society on my laptop using my account when I’m not looking. :P She has her own pet, Alyssa (formerly Aurora), but she likes to play with Treehorn every once in a while. Yesterday, I found out that she took the initiative to use some of my playfish cash to buy magic fairy dust for Treehorn from the Boutique.
To my surprise, when I sat in front of my computer, I saw my pet flying in her house! The fairy dust costs 2 cc and will last for 3 days. Your pet won’t fly much but will just hover a little bit over the ground instead of walking. She will sparkle a little but it’s not that magical, in my opinion.
Personally, I wouldn’t bother buying it as I don’t think a 3-day magic effect is worth any playfish cash. But since there’s nothing I can do about it anymore, I may as well enjoy playing with hovering Tree.
ITEM RATING: 2 out of 5.
I. New Mystery Box Items
II. New Free Gifts
III. New Fish
IV. Spoilers for Monday: Rockin’ the 80’s
Spoilers for the Monday update are now available in Pet Society’s official blog. Looks like we’re bringing back the 80’s rock scene with the bold music and animal prints. Yikes!
- The Mexican Food Delivery Subscription is finally complete today.
- So is the Candy Pinata collection.
- House of Tree has been updated.
- And if you haven’t been to PSA yes to see the Mother’s Day finalists, go go go!
And that’s all folks! :D
I forgot to do a Greatest and the Lamest post for last week’s new items. But then Cinco de Mayo was a pretty fabulous week with all the colorful, fancy but affordable stuff. Not to mention all that Mexican food! I almost expected a port-a-potty to go with the food delivery subscription.
Now let’s turn our attentions to this week’s offerings starting with…
One of the things that made my list are the cars sold in the Market and Garden stores. They’re quite expensive and big but they’re so cute! Buying one for my Treehorn felt like getting a car for my Barbie when I was 5. Pictured here are the pink retro car and red sports car:
Here’s Tree testing out the cream sports car. It rocks, shakes and bounces slightly when your pet gets in. Too bad it doesn’t really run.
Next is the city rock fountain. Now I’m really excited about this. Even in the store you could see that it’s animated with three jets of water shooting up alternately. You’d think something like this would cost at least 2,000 coins. But no… it’s a pleasantly cheap 900 coins!
RATING: 4.5 out of 5. It’s cheap and animated. It could be prettier, though.
Lastly, I’m really happy about them introducing plain wallpapers in very pretty colors: dark aquamarine, purple, aquamarine and bordeaux. There are lots of players who prefer to accent their decorations and furniture against a solid-colored wall but the previously available solid wallpapers were either dark, plain, or unattractive. This is a fresh change!
RATING: 5 out of 5. Can’t go wrong with an affordable and tasteful wallpaper.
This isn’t hard to guess. A lot of players, especially those from the Asian continent, were very disappointed that they were not able to get the solid gold teddy. I shared my own tale of woe in the previous post. While they did lessen the amount to make the product live up to its “limited” status, they didn’t realize that a cheaper price coupled with a prettier, more marketable product made players want it much more than the other limited item, the peter pan statue.
RATING: 5 out of 5 for the teddy. 1 out of 5 for Playfish.
The next one isn’t really that lame. But there’s a pink flowerbed available for free in the free gifts section. So why did they price a less attractive blue flowerbed so high? I think 750 coins for a small garden item is a wee bit much especially when it has a free twin.
RATING: 2 out of 5.
