Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum!!! Are you ready, Pet Society fans, for a week filled with items fit for a giant? Oversized everyday items are making their way into town this week!

Starting today, the search is on for the newest Mystery items! A Thimble Flower Pot, perfect for green thumbed pets, an oversized Pink Thread Seat (careful of the needle! Ouch!), and a Duck Stamp Picture can be yours if luck is on your side! Can you find them all? You’ll have to visit “?” in the Mystery Shop to begin the hunt. Good luck!

What’s better than showering your friends with FREE gifts? Showering them with HUGE free gifts! Ok.. this one isn´t exactly HUGE, per se.. but that is definitely one of the biggest buttons I’ve ever seen! And for some reason… it actually looks cute when worn on the top of your head. This gift is available now to send to your friends.

It’s a good thing the shovels aren’t oversized this week. Digging is tough enough as it is! Phew. All of your hard work will pay off this week when you find the newest weekly item, which is a Diamond Ring Headband. Have you seen the size of that rock?! Any girl would be lucky to wear something that flashy on their head. This item is available in the Town Forest now, so get digging! And remember.. it’s only available for one week.

Oversized head gear is the newest trend in Pet Society.. I don’t recommend going outside in the heat while wearing the Overgrown Strawberry Hat, if you want to turn your hair red, the new Dark Red Wig Dye is a much better solution! (and then you won’t attract bugs, be sticky and all of that mess!)

To reward our PFC OR Coin buyers, we are giving out a Short Bob Wig via email. So make sure you are subscribed! I will update you a little later on when these cute wigs will be given out!

A couple of other updates to the game include a level increase, which has now been raised to level 100!
New Bonsai pots have also been added. They are not buyable in stores, but you will have the option to choose which one you want when you pull your tree out of the ground. There will also be a preview of the beautiful new pots in the Garden Shop.

I hope you have enjoyed this oversized update! See you next week, Pet Society fans!

Also, just a reminder that sometimes decisions are made at the last minute and things can work out differently than we originally planned. All information including pricing should be taken as guidance only and is subject to change before and after release.

Dance a Jig through the Emerald Isle

March 12, 2010

Hey Pet Society fans! Dance a jig this week as the Irish spirit is rolling into town for St. Patrick’s Day!

The excitement starts now with brand new mysterious items now available in mystery boxes! Sirius was blessed with the luck of the Irish when she snuck into the Mystery Store earlier, “?” was helping another pet over by the Snow White Mystery Egg Vending Machine, so she just snuck behind the counter, rummaged through a draw, found the images, and hurried back out without “?” even knowing she’d been! So here they are, sign on to Pet Society via Facebook now to see if you can find them! (Please note these mysterious items are available for a limited time only.)

While searching for new the new mysterious items, start searching for Hideeni too! He’s disguised himself in a bunny suit and has decorative eggs to share with your friends to celebrate the Holidays! Remember that when you find Hideeni, he is offering you an opportunity to share an egg with your friends by posting to your Facebook wall. To collect your own eggs, you need to click on your friend’s posts when they find Hideeni! 😉

Hideeni has competition though! There are now more free gifts in Pet Society! When you visit a friend for the first time each day, you can choose to post a free gift to their Facebook wall! If they accept your gift, they can choose to post some coins for you back to your wall!

Thank you for all of your feedback so far regarding the recent new design of Pet Society! With your feedback in mind, we’ve made a few adjustments which are now live! These include:

  • Coins for visits have been increased again, you will now earn 50 coins for your first 50 visits each day, 25 coins for the next 25, and 15 coins thereafter!
  • Your paw point bar is back to showing your total paw points earned since you started playing!
  • The paw points available for washing have been increased.
  • Shops now scroll faster, which will be helpful when in a hurry to buy those things at the other end of the store!
  • There is a new coin bag symbol shown in your friends list, once you have visited a friend in the current day, the coin bag will disappear to show who you’ve visited (instead of the changing background colours).

Spring is the perfect time to be growing new plants, but are you out of room? If you are, perhaps these Bonsai Pots will help! If you would like to remove a tree to make more room to grow new things, but want to keep a small version as a decoration, you can select “Make Bonsai” when pulling out your tree and then choose the type of Treepot you would like (please note that trees no longer produce fruit as a bonsai)! Please be aware if you own a Beanstalk that making it into a Bonsai will also remove your Secret Beanstalk Room, so Sirius recommends you avoid doing this!

This coming Monday (the 15th of March) the beautiful green shamrocks encapsulate even more of the village. Remember that any items labelled This Week’s Special (TWS) will be in store until midnight GMT on Monday the 22nd of March, 2010, but may be available again at some point in the future. Also, any items labelled Holiday Special (HS) will be in store until midnight GMT on Monday the 12th of April, 2010, but may be available again at some point in the future.

There’s a definite Irish flavour to the Furniture Store this week, with shamrocks decorating the furniture, and some new little Leprechaun friends!

It appears a Leprechaun visited Mrs. Appleblossom recently, as she has some intriguing new seeds. She didn’t see a thing, but the Shamrock Seeds are said to be magical, mostly growing Shamrock Flowers, but if you are lucky, occasionally growing Clover Flowers!

Truffles sees any celebration as a chance for delicious new treats, so try a Shamrock Cupcake or a Shamrock Drink before Truffles devours them all! Plus, if you want to part the night away this St. Patrick’s Day, why not pick up some Shamrock Balloons from your local Food Store! If the shamrock treats weren’t quite to your taste, or even if they were, perhaps try casting them into the Pond to see if you can catch the legendary Shamrockfish!
