As always, before we dive into what’s in store for this month, make sure to check out this rollover's winners in our Winner’s Showcase!
NEW! Toybox Event
This month we will be hosting a free MYO event for all of our members! From now until midnight on October 2nd, you'll be able to design your own kigurumi thimblet based on a beloved childhood plush! Not only will entering earn you a free thimblet (granted that all the guidelines are met,) but everyone who enters will also receive a Nostalgic Goodie Bag including an event treat, a raffle ticket, and a special item from our event selection! These new items include three special thimblet mutation items, and a selection of new "Toy pets!" Check out our forum post for more info on the event!
NEW! Glowfly Prize Shop
The Firefly Event has come to an end, and with it our special "darkmode" site theme, but to commemorate the event we have both sent out a special new commemorative "Treat" (see below for more info on those!) and opened a special Prize Shop where you can be rewarded for releasing the fireflies you collected! In addition to purchasing prizes, there is a special "turn-in" available for any extra Recipe Books or Menagerie BGs you received and don't want to hold on to for trading. Each item you turn in will give you an entry into a raffle for a special Midveiler designed by Loppyrae! (Design pending) You'll have all month until the next rollover to make purchases & enter the raffle!

Update: Treats Replace Stamps!
We've completely overhauled Stamps and replaced them with thematic "Treats"! All our stamps have been replaced (including past event stamps,) with the exception of the retired newspaper stamps, which will come at a later date. We apologize to anyone who will miss the stamps, and plan to reuse their art in other ways over the next few years. For now, we hope you enjoy filling up your treat collections! This change will make it easier for us to keep things cohesive and make more rewards! Have an idea for a "Treat" you'd like to see? Toss it in the suggestion box, and we'll see what we can do! New treats are also on the way in coming days!
Update: Crafting Changes!
We've made some adjustments to crafting! We've adjusted some existing recipes and added a few new ones, as well!
Canned Preserves, one of the biggest recipes in need of adjustment, has been split into 3 seperate recipes per crop type:
- Canned Preserves: Now ONLY requires Farm Crops (+1 Container)
- Fruit Popsicle: Requires ONLY Orchard Crops (+1 Ice)
- Fruit Salad: Requires ONLY Trellis Crops
We've also added 3 new starter recipes: Fruit Jellies, Fruit Sorbet, and Fruit Tart!
Some other small updates include:
- Ice: You may now use Fresh Snow in place of Rainwater
- Sugar: You may now use Rainbow Honey or Candy Wool to craft
- Containers: You may now use Stick Bugs to craft (since you can also use Twigs!)
- Various: You may now use Mushrooms in recipes that call for "Any Vegetable"
New: Bonus Cloudchasing
There is now a hidden quest for a special item that will let you have a bonus free cloudchasing per day. Happy hunting!
New: Show Off Your Beebs!
By popular request, we've made an adjustment to show any "Beeb" pets currently in your Orchard Bee Boxes on your profile (if you choose to show Green Acres pet!) By showing this section on your profile you can even click on the Beeb and name them much like your Barn/Coop pets. While these names don't show up on the Orchard (nor are you able to reach the page from the Orchard) that is something we will consider for future planning if we can find a good way to make it work. For now, you need to show you beebs on your profile in order to view/name them!
