Fantastic Pets Achievement Guide and Roadmap

Roadmap

Overview:
- Estimated achievement difficulty: 2/10
- Offline: 41 (1000)
- Online: 0 (0)
- Approximate amount of time to 1000: 15 - 20 + hours (over the course of multiple days)
- Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1
- Number of missable achievements: 0
- Do cheat codes disable achievements?: No cheats
- Does difficulty affect achievements?: No
- Glitchy achievements: None
- Unobtainable achievements: None
- Extra equipment needed?: Kinect Sensor

Introduction:
Welcome to the Fantastic Pets achievement guide and roadmap. This game is similar in style and execution to Kinectimals, but not as good. It is relatively straight forward and the only things that will slow you down are the fact that the game happens in real time and having to get 100% of the awards.

Step 1 - Play through the First Day’s Events:
The game is very open and you can do whatever you like. The only thing that you need to understand is that the game happens in real time. For instance, Tuesday in the game is Tuesday in real life too. You can only do certain things once or twice a day and that means one of two things:
  1. Pop the game in and play it daily for about 20 – 25 minutes until you have completed everything.
  2. Manipulate the date on your Xbox and play the game offline.
The first day is a tutorial of sorts and there is really no reason to play it offline unless you want to. I have a daily guide walking you through the first couple of days and it can be found HERE. This first day will take 5 + hours to finish depending on how much you decide to do.

Step 2 – Day 2 and beyond:
After finishing Day 1, there really isn’t much to do other than the bare minimum requirements for the remaining ranks, achievements and awards that span multiple days. Again, the Daily Guide I created will walk you through getting the majority of the achievements as quick as possible. At a minimum I’d recommend giving it a quick read so you have an idea of how the game works and what to expect. It really is not too complex.

During the course of playing through the game, you will be able to unlock slots to have a maximum of 4 active animals. If you made a mistake on your pet selections or just want to try out a different pet, you can change the active pet by going to the smart phone menu and choosing the "Select a Pet" option. Now just pick the icon of the pet you want to change. If you need a completely different pet or species, choose "Swap pet". This will take you back to your uncle's house and you can choose whoever you want.

Step 3 – Mop Up:
At this point you will be ready to wrap up the game. The only thing left would be to customize 3 animals for their respective achievements and work on getting 100% of the awards. I have a list of the awards and it can be found HERE. Any award that you cannot earn can be bought for 1000 gems each so it eliminates any difficulty.

Conclusion:
The game is OK for the first day but then you are hit with the sad truth that there are only 12 mini-games to play. That’s it, over and over until you have reached your final rank. It is a decent game for kids and there is a lot of customization for your pets but an adult gamer will probably grow tired of it after the initial day which makes getting the full 1000 a chore.

Good luck to all who try and thanks for reading.

Achievement Guide

Beginner - 10
You created your first pet.

Story related and cannot be missed.

At the beginning of the game you will be forced to play through a tutorial of sorts. You will pick your first pet, learn the basics of menu navigation, play a short mini game and finally enter the animal customizer. Once you finish with the customizer and accept the changes (if any) the game will save and the achievement unlocks.

Junior feeder - 20
You reached Trainer rank 2.

See "Grand high pet master".

Bronze grade pet attendant - 20
You reached Trainer rank 3.

See "Grand high pet master".

Silver grade keeper - 25
You reached Trainer rank 4.

See "Grand high pet master".

Gold grade animal overseer - 25
You reached Trainer rank 5.

See "Grand high pet master".

Member first class - 30
You reached Trainer rank 6.

See "Grand high pet master".

Platinum master trainer - 30
You reached Trainer rank 7.

See "Grand high pet master".

Senior elite keeper - 40
You reached Trainer rank 8.

See "Grand high pet master".

Diamond animal guru - 40
You reached Trainer rank 9.

See "Grand high pet master".

Grand high pet master - 50
You reached Trainer rank 10.

You rank up by participating in Talent Shows. Talent Shows happen only ONCE per day and in REAL time. So you have to log in to the game daily and complete the Talent Shows. Once you have finished the event for the day, you have to wait until the next day to participate in the next one. This turns into a long procedure, as it took me 7 complete shows to just reach rank 5 and then another 19 shows to get to rank 10, so 26 actual days.

Of course the alternative is to disconnect from Live and play offline. To do this, play the current day’s Talent Show, do whatever other daily event you are trying to unlock and then exit the game. Then, manually change the date of your Xbox to the next day, and repeat the procedure as often as needed. I started the game April 12, 2011 and got rank 10 on May 7, 2011. Obviously the time it takes to rank up will also depend on your overall medal for each show you participate in. For reference, I got overall gold every day except for one silver.

I have a guide for obtaining these ranks and awards while offline and it can be found HERE.

The fastest way to level up is to just play on Saturdays. You can also use the offline method and just keep changing the date to the next Saturday. You get almost 3 times the amount of points for a Saturday win as opposed to a win on any other day. A quick word of caution, make sure you only do this when you are not going for any awards or achievements that require you to play on consecutive days. Thanks to olcsi2 for the tip!

That’s what I was thinking! - 20
You played your pets choice of activity 10 times.

Sometimes while in Free Play (just standing in your house) your pet will display a thought bubble with an activity it wants to complete. Just reach out and grab the icon to start the event. Do this 9 more times during the course of playing the game to unlock this achievement. This is cumulative and can be spread across multiple pets. For example you can do 3 suggestions with a cat, 3 with a dog, 2 with a lizard and 2 with a pony for a total of 10 and still get the achievement. It unlocks after completing the 10th event.

Next to godliness - 35
You washed a pet every day for a week.

The days in the game change in real time, meaning that Tuesday in the game is actually Tuesday in your time zone. For this achievement to unlock, you need to load up the game every day for seven straight days and choose to complete the “Pet Wash” activity. After completing the final consecutive Pet Wash, a week after your start date, the achievement will unlock.

This can also be done offline by manually manipulating the date of your Xbox. See “Grand high pet master” for specific information on how to complete this.

Work out - 20
You chased a pet for a minute.

For this achievement you need to run around your playable area and get your animal to chase you. What I did was just run around in a small circle and the words "Chase Time" appear on the screen. Just keep this message on the screen for a minute and the achievement unlocks. This is cumulative and can be done in segments. For example, 3 runs at 20 seconds each will still work.

Tickle time! - 25
You stroked / tickled a pet for 5 minutes.

First you need to have adopted your pet. Then while in free play, sit down on the ground and just reach out your hand to rub your pet. "Stroke your pet" will appear in the top of the screen so just sit there and hold your hand over your pet. This achievement is cumulative and can be done across multiple pets. For instance you can do 3 minutes with a cat and then 2 minutes with a dog. It can even be done across multiple play sessions so it really isn't very difficult. Five minutes sure does seem like a long time when you actually sit down to do this.

Owner’s got talent - 20
You entered a Talent Show.

Story related and cannot be missed.

After creating your first pet, you will eventually get invited to the first talent show. Simply enter the show and complete the events and the achievement will unlock at the end results screen.

Victory is mine! - 40
You won the Main Event two weeks in a row.

Every Saturday you will be able to participate in a Big Show. The last event of the big shown is the Main Event. Win this event back to back and the achievement is yours. This can be done by playing offline and manipulating the Xbox clock to immediately jump to the next Saturday.

Book worm - 35
You listened to all of the encyclopedia entries.

While in free play, select your smart phone by holding your left arm up to the phone icon in the upper left hand corner of the screen. Once in the menu, select the "Pet Encyclopedia" which is the third icon on the top row. Now you will be able to scroll through the 6 different categories and listen to each of the five entries per category. The achievement unlocks after selecting to listen to the last one. This takes about 15 minutes to sit and go through them all and there will be a yellow border around the ones you have not played in case you somehow lose track of what you've heard.

The categories are:
  • Dogs
  • Cats
  • Lizards
  • Ponies
  • Pets
  • Fantastic Pets
You’re ALL my favorite! - 20
You owned a pet of each species.

There are 4 main species of pets and they are:
  • Dogs
  • Cats
  • Lizards
  • Ponies
Just play the game anyway you like and you will eventually be given the opportunity to pick a new pet. Every time you get this chance, choose one of the species you do not already have. The achievement unlocks after adopting the last one.

All rounder - 15
You played all the activities in free play.

While not in an event or show you will be in your house with your animal. Select your toy box and play each of the activities at least 1 time and the achievement will unlock. The complete list of activities can be found under "All the toys".

All the toys - 30
You unlocked all of the activities.

Activities can be bought through your toy box. Just hold your right arm up to the right corner to open the toy box and then just select the activity you want to buy. You earn gems by picking them up during training, events and talent shows. The gems are the currency for this game.

Here is a list of the 12 activities in the game and their costs:
  1. Ball Fetch - unlocked automatically
  2. Pet Wash - 200 gems
  3. Pet Rampage - 800 gems
  4. Pinatas - 300 gems
  5. Brush Time - 200 gems
  6. Acrobatics - 600 gems
  7. Bubble Bubbler - unlocked automatically
  8. Take Aim - 1000 gems
  9. Bubble Dodge - 1000 gems
  10. Food Time - 100 gems
  11. Power Pounce - 1000 gems
  12. Sit - 400 gems
Winning team - 10
You earned a gold award in a Talent Show.

This should be easy to get on the first talent show. There are 5 events and prior to each event it will give you the score requirements for each medal. The very first time I played the first talent show I got 3 gold medals, 1 silver and 1 bronze which when added together gave me an overall gold and this achievement.

Talent veteran - 30
You attended a Talent Show on every day of the week.

The days in the game change in real time, meaning that Tuesday in the game is actually Tuesday in your time zone. For this achievement to unlock, you need to load up the game every day for seven straight days and choose to complete the “Talent Show” for that day. After completing the final consecutive show a week after your start date the achievement will unlock.

This can also be done offline by manually manipulating the date of your Xbox. See “Grand high pet master” for specific information on how to complete this.

Aerobatics - 20
You commanded the pet to do a barrel roll.

First, select a pet that has wings. Now while just standing in your house during Free Play, flap your arms to get the animal flying. Once they are in the air, stick your right or left arm out in front of you and continuously “paint” a circle in the air until your pet recognizes it and does the roll. You should be using the same movement that you use to get the animal to roll while standing on the ground. The achievement pops instantly.

Keep on running - 5
You ran straight past the target area in Sit!

One of the mini-games is called "Sit". It is pretty simple and all you need to do is run in place and when you reach the green target mat, stop running and squat down. Your animal will then sit down and slide to a stop. After your animal stops sliding, the closer to the red danger zone you are will determine how many points you get. For this achievement, run as fast as possible and sit as late as possible to slide right off the mat. The achievement will unlock at the end of the event or show, at the overall results screen.

Best of friends - 35
You played with a pet every day for a week.

The days in the game change in real time, meaning that Tuesday in the game is actually Tuesday in your time zone. For this achievement to unlock, you need to load up the game every day for seven straight days and choose to complete any game activity. After completing the final consecutive game, a week after your start date, the achievement will unlock.

This can also be done offline by manually manipulating the date of your Xbox. See “Grand high pet master” for specific information on how to complete this.

Do not disturb - 15
You did nothing for long enough that your pet went to sleep.

While in free play, just walk out of the view of your Kinect sensor and sit on the sidelines and take a break for a couple of minutes. You will eventually hear your pet snoring. Afterward, walk back into the sensors range and the achievement should unlock.

Give us some credit - 10
You watched the credits all the way through.

At any point in the game, grab a controller and press to bring up the Kinect Tuner. Now press to close it and you will be at the game's pause screen. You can also hold your left arm down at a 45 degree angle to bring up the pause screen if you like. Once in the pause menu, select the gear in the middle for options and on the options screen, select the star icon in the bottom right hand corner. Watch the entire credit roll (it takes about 2 minutes) and you will be returned to the options screen and the achievement will unlock.

Total destruction! - 20
You completely destroyed a cardboard city!

There is an activity that you can buy called Pet Rampage and it costs 1000 gems. Once you have unlocked it, you can select it as many times as you need to through your toy box. The object of the game is to throw balls at the cardboard building to knock them over and then your animal will also run and fetch the ball, hopefully knocking over even more boxes.

To get the achievement, you need to max out the destruction meter on the right side of the screen. This may take a couple of tries but here are some simple tips:
  • Target the sides of the screen first. A lot of the time, your ball will ricochet around and your toss will take out the boxes on the sides and your animal will take out the boxes in the middle as it runs back.
  • Understand that your animal will generally run straight back to you so throw the ball in such a way that you will hit the boxes that are outside of your animal's return path.
  • The game will put red arrows on the areas where there are still boxes to hit. Aim for the arrows.
Dedicated follower of fashion - 20
You changed a pet’s style 3 times.

During the course of playing the game you need to change a pet’s style a total of three times. When you first adopt a pet, you get the chance to change something so go ahead and do it even if it is something minor like a color change. As you continue playing, after your first talent show you will get the option to change your style again. Choose to do so and that will count as number 2. Now just go back into your smart phone menu and select to change your appearance again for 50 gems. Do whatever you like and the achievement unlocks upon saving the changes.

You can do this with multiple animals if you like. For instance, 2 changes to a cat and then 1 to a lizard will still count as the 3 total needed.

Fail - 5
You scored no points during a Talent Show.

During a Talent Show, you need to end a single event with 0 points. This is very easy to do. Just play through and talent show and when you randomly get either of the events Power Pounce or Sit!, just run straight off the mat all three times. You can also just stand there and let the timer run out in events that are timed. The achievement will unlock immediately after the event.

Epic fail - 5
You didn’t win any medals in an entire Talent Show.

Start a talent show and purposely fail every event. You need to score low enough to not get any medals. Manage to do this while not getting any points on a single event to also unlock "Fail" at the same time. You will probably have to actually TRY to get a low enough score. The events are randomly selected so you may have to keep trying until you get a good batch.

Here are some basic tips:
  • If the event has a timer, just stand there and let the time run out.
  • If the event has a way of penalizing you, be sure to get the penalty as often as possible.
  • On the 2 running events, just run off the mat at the end all 3 times.
  • On the ball throwing events, try your best to drop the ball as close as possible. These are the worst events to score low in.
  • And finally, avoid the “Strike a Pose” bonus events while going for this achievement. Just stand to the side out of the silhouette to avoid getting any bonus points.
You may want to combine this achievement with “Poor coordination”.

olcsi2 has an alternate and quicker method (assuming you are not combining this with "Poor coordination"): At the start of the first minigame, assume the Kinect pause / cancel position (hold your left arm out at 45 degrees) and then from the menu that pops up, select "skip" and you will get 0 points and no medal for the event. Do it 4 more times and achievement unlocked!

Poor coordination - 5
You messed up 10 Strike a Pose events in a row.

During the Talent Shows you compete in 5 different mini games. After each mini game you have the opportunity to increase your score by striking the pose inside the on screen silhouette. To get this achievement you will need to play through 2 talent shows and purposely stand off on the side (still inside the Kinect Sensor’s range) but out of the silhouette. You will know you did it right when the images disappears and displays red smoke where you should have been standing.

This can be done at any point in the game will unlock at the end of the second talent show at the results screen.

You can also use the offline method as outlined in the Daily Guide found HERE.

I’m hungry! - 5
You didn’t feed your pet for 5 days in a row.

You can unlock this achievement anytime after adopting your first pet. You can do this two different ways:
  1. Just do not play the game for five straight calendar days.
  2. Play offline and manually change the date on your Xbox to be five days later.
You should also buy the Food Time mini-game for 100 gems first.

Thanks to Lord Retro for the confirmation of the offline method.

Rainbownicorn - 30
You created a horse that looks like a rainbow unicorn.

I started with a unicorn (found under ponies) named Crystal. First I took off the wings and then I proceeded to paint the animal the following colors (all the numbers I assigned are defined by starting from the first one and counting to the right):
  • Skin - A pinkish color (color 19)
  • Pattern - A light blue (color 15, the last one in this category)
  • Tail - Yellow (color 9)
  • Feet - A light purple (color 4)
  • Ears - Green (color 13)
The achievement unlocks upon applying the correct colors and saving the changes.

Here's a picture for reference:
Rainbow.jpg

Imaginary tiger - 30
You created a cat that looks like a imaginary friend / tiger that only comes to life for you.

I started with a cat named Sasha. Here is how to build the one I used to unlock the achievement (all the numbers I assigned are defined by starting from the first one and counting to the right):
  • Wings - None
  • Horns - None
  • Skin - 3, Color - 6
  • Pattern - 6, Color - 8
  • Eyes - Default
  • Tail - None
  • Feet - None
  • Wildness - 1
The pattern you need is locked at the beginning of the game and can be unlocked by exploring the world using the Atlas. The achievement unlocks upon applying the correct colors and saving the changes.

Here's a picture for reference:
Imaginary.jpg

Red dragon - 30
You created a totally red dragon.

I started with a dragon (found under lizards) named Drake. I only had to change 2 things but I'll go ahead and list every category because maybe the other components are randomized. Here is how to build the one I used to unlock the achievement (all the numbers I assigned are defined by starting from the first one and counting to the right):
  • Wings - 4
  • Horns - 3
  • Skin - 1, Color - 17
  • Pattern - None
  • Eyes - 8
  • Tail - None
  • Feet - None
  • Wildness - 5
The red you need is locked at the beginning of the game and can be unlocked by exploring the last expedition in South America from your Atlas. The achievement unlocks upon applying the correct colors and saving the changes. Thanks to Ric The Dude and spectreon for helping to refine this description and requirements.

Here's a picture for reference:
RedDragon.jpg

Eyes on the prize - 25
You won 25% of the Trainers Headquarters awards at bronze or above.

See "One of everything!".

Trophy legend - 30
You won 50% of the Trainers Headquarters awards at bronze or above.

See "One of everything!".

Award hoard - 40
You won 75% of the Trainers Headquarters awards at bronze or above.

See "One of everything!".

One of everything! - 50
You won all of the Trainers Headquarters awards at bronze or above.

There are 62 awards total and a complete list can be found HERE. This list can also be found in the game by selecting “Trophy Cabinet” from your Smart phone menu found at the upper left corner of the screen. You will unlock achievements for completing the specified percentages of the awards and they are at 25, 50, 75 and finally 100 percent. The description under each award tells you what you need to do in order to unlock that award.

It is important to note that ANY award you cannot earn, you can buy for 1000 gems. This includes the horrific Perfect Bubble Dodge awards. Just buy all the objects from the Atlas and then go into your Trophy Cabinet. Select the award you are missing, and on the description screen for that specific award it will now show an "Upgrade" option next to "OK". I just bought the last eight awards I was missing to get this achievement.

Important Note: If you buy an award it will not count toward your total immediately. You need to return back to the smart phone menu by pressing the large "X" on the top right hand corner. From there, select "Back" which is also in top right corner and this will take you back to the main gameplay screen and the achievement should unlock. If it doesn't, play a quick mini-game and it should unlock once the game saves.

I'd like to give a special thanks to ZknucklebabiesZ for letting me know about the ability to buy the awards. I can't believe I didn't see it myself.

Cabinet large - 30
You won every Trainers Headquarters award on a shelf stack.

There are 16 different shelves to the Trophy Cabinet found in the Smart phone menu. To unlock this achievement you just have to get all the awards on one of the shelves. I have a list of all the awards and it can be found HERE. Some of the easiest shelves to complete are probably Pet Trainer Awards and Free Play Awards. Both of these can be done during your first day of play or you can try any of the others through regular play over the course of multiple days or by manipulating the date of your Xbox and playing offline.

See “Grand high pet master” for specific information on how to complete this offline.

DLC: Wings DLC Pack
Cost: 240 MSP Achievements: 10 Points: 235

DLC Roadmap

Overview:
- Estimated achievement difficulty: 1/10
- Offline: 10 (235)
- Online: 0 (0)
- Approximate amount of time to 235: 2 - 3 hours
- Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 10
- Number of missable achievements: 0
- Do cheat codes disable achievements?: No cheats
- Does difficulty affect achievements?: No
- Glitchy achievements: None
- Unobtainable achievements: None
- Extra equipment needed?: Kinect Sensor

Introduction:
Welcome to the Fantastic Pets Wings DLC Pack achievement guide and roadmap. This DLC was released May 3, 2011 and you get one new mini game and a couple more customization options. The biggest draw really is the boost to your gamerscore in just a few hours.

Step 1 - Take Off! with a cat:
Load up the game and use a cat with no wings like Sasha and try to start the new mini-game "Take Off!". It will tell you that you need wings and will prompt you to go to the Pet Database. Select "Yes" and when you get there, choose the "Wings" option. Now select a pair of wings with the DLC symbol (a globe with a downward facing green arrow). I just choose Wings 1 (with the DLC symbol). Then go to "Skin" and "Color" and pick option 1 here (a greyish blue). Now, change the "Tail" to color 2, change the "Feet" to color 3 and finally change the "Ears" to color 4. Save the changes and return to the main game screen to unlock "Committed to the look" and "I has colors".

Now return to the mini games menu and select "Take Off!". The game is four rounds and for this first attempt we want to fail all 4 times. When the event starts, just sit down on the ground and your cat will fall into the water. After the Event is over click the green check mark to continue and you will unlock "100% missed" and "Feline failure".

Step 2 - Take Off! with a dog:
Return to your smart phone menu and go to swap pets. Return to your uncles house and pick a dog named Rowdy (number 4). Then go to the pet database to customize it as follows:
  • Wings - 2 (normal wings not DLC wings - they look like bat wings)
  • Horns - none
  • Skin - 1, Color - 14 (white)
  • Pattern - 10, Color - 15 (black)
  • Tail - none
  • Feet - none
  • Ears - none
Now play Take Off! again and during the course of playing through the four levels this time, focus on ONLY collecting gems. It does not matter if you land successfully or not. The goal here is to get a total of 10 gems in this single 4 round session. You can get 3 in the first round, 2 in the 2nd, 4 in the third and 1 in the last stage (or any combination that will equal at least 10) If you are successful you will unlock "First Class Flier" and you should also get "Two Toned Puppy". If you don't get the 10 gems this round don't sweat it because we need to play the event at least 8 more times to unlock all the DLC achievements.

Step 3 - Take Off! some more:
Now play Take off! with a pony and then a lizard (or vice versa) to unlock "Pet Squadron Away!". If you already got "First Class Flier" you can make the remaining rounds go by faster by just crashing into the water by leaning forward. Now continue to play (or fail) the event 6 more times (complete 4 round sessions) to unlock Frequent Flier.

The only thing left is to spend all your gems (all the way to 0) and then win a Saturday Talent Show in one of the new outfits.

Conclusion:
You don't get much content for this DLC so luckily it is rather cheap and won't take longer than a couple of hours to complete. You probably won't play it anymore after that though.


DLC Achievement Guide:

Two tone canine - 20
Play the Take Off! Activity with a black and white dog.

Return to your uncles house and pick a dog named Rowdy (number 4). Then go to the pet database to customize it as follows:
  • Wings - 2 (normal wings not DLC wings - they look like bat wings)
  • Horns - none
  • Skin - 1, Color - 14 (white)
  • Pattern - 10, Color - 15 (black)
  • Tail - none
  • Feet - none
  • Ears - none
Now play Take Off! and the achievement will unlock.

I has colors - 15
Give every part of a cat (feet, ears, tail, body) a different color.

We will combine 4 achievements into this step:

Load up the game and use a cat with no wings like Sasha and try to start the new mini-game "Take Off!". It will tell you that you need wings and will prompt you to go to the Pet Database. Select "Yes" and when you get there, choose the "Wings" option. Now select a pair of wings with the DLC symbol (a globe with a downward facing green arrow). I just choose Wings 1 (with the DLC symbol). Then go to "Skin" and "Color" and pick option 1 here (a greyish blue). Now, change the "Tail" to color 2, change the "Feet" to color 3 and finally change the "Ears" to color 4. Save the changes and return to the main game screen to unlock "Committed to the look" and "I has colors".

Now return to the mini games menu and select "Take Off!". The game is four rounds and for this first attempt we want to fail all 4 times. When the event starts, just sit down on the ground and your cat will fall into the water. After the Event is over click the green check mark to continue and you will unlock "100% missed" and "Feline failure".

Dressed to win - 40
Win a Saturday Talent Show while your pet is wearing one of the new fantastic pet costumes.

First you either need to play on Saturday or go offline and change the system date to Saturday. Pick any pet you like and go to the "Pet database" in your smart phone menu. Choose the option for "Fantastic Pet" and then pick any outfit with the DLC symbol on it (a globe with a downward facing green arrow). Now go and play the daily talent show and win the overall gold medal and the achievement unlocks at the results screen.

Throw it all away - 20
Get your GEM count to zero.

All you need to do is spend all your money to make the counter get down to 0. The easiest thing to do is just get your total gem count to the nearest multiple of 50 and then just keep spending 50 gems at a time by using the Pet Database to customize your animal. Just keep re-entering it until you are at 0.

To help get to a multiple of 50 you can play Take Off! and grab the gems there. Only collect the ones that will give you the amount you need.

The values are:
  • Red gems = 1
  • Yellow gems = 10
  • Blue gems = 50
First-class flier - 30
Collect ten or more GEMs in one session of the Take Off! Activity.

Play the Take Off! mini-game and during the course of playing through the four levels of a session, focus on ONLY collecting gems. It does not matter if you land successfully or not. The goal here is to get a total of 10 gems in this single 4 round session. You can get 3 in the first round, 2 in the 2nd, 4 in the third and 1 in the last stage (or any combination that will equal at least 10) If you are successful you will unlock "First class flier".

100% missed - 15
Collect no GEMs at all in one session of the Take Off! Activity.

See "I has colors".

Feline failure - 20
Score no points and collect no GEMs in a single session of the Take Off! activity with a cat.

See "I has colors".

Pet squadron away! - 30
Play Take Off! with a cat, dog, lizard and pony.

Just play the new event "Take Off!" with each type of animal and the achievement unlocks.

Frequent flier - 30
Play the Take Off! Activity 10 times.

You will have played this mini-game at least 4 times to get some of the other achievements in this DLC pack so just play it 6 more times and the achievement is yours.

Committed to the look - 15
Customize a pet with new choices from the extra customization options.

See "I has colors".

I played three complete weeks (21 days!) offline and washed my pet every day and played with it. 100% sure that I didn't miss a day! Did never get the achievements for this though!!! Can I buy those awards and will I get the achievements then??? I'm afraid those two just won't unlock in my game! :'(

cool. Now that the guide is complete and I know, I can get every achievement without glitch or too much frustration, I will definitely buy this! Just need to finish Kinectimals already and off I go! :-)

WOW! Only 240msp... now thats how you put out DLC, granted anything over 400 I woulda passed on it. Thanks again for the guide, DLC was cake and now the game can be shipped back to whence it came so I can get something else (preferably better).

Excellent guide for the DLC. Got my extra 235GS in about an hour (After going off-line to get the Saturday ach). Thanks for the speedy work.

Well i have 17 awards left. About 4 of them for the free play which ill just knock out easily. So for the rest I can just purchase at the description screen? Say if I buy just one and move onto the next saturday would I have to follow the same way which would be purchase, click back, and click back again to the main menu? Get that one award then proceed to manipulate the date, play another talent show, and purchase again? I just want to make sure before I start free spending my hard earned gems.

btw is there a menu option I can click to see how to make my pet "sit" and do other tricks. I wasnt paying attention when the avatar popped up. Man I am so close. 3 achievements left. the 75%, all trophies, and one drawer of trophies.

By the time I was "done" with the majority of the achievements I was still missing 8 awards. I had enough gems, so I just went and bought everything all at once. I then exited out of the Trophy Cabinet and went back to the freeplay screen (just you with your pet superimposed into the room) which forced a save and the achievement. You will notice that your award count will not change while you buy the awards. It will only show the updated total once you re-enter the Trophy Cabinet after saving. Kinda odd but it does work.

In your example, if you do not have enough gems for the ones you are missing then you can either buy them one at a time like you suggest or just play until you have enough (each award is 1000 gems) and get them all at once. Either way will work.

As for "Sit" I don't recall seeing an in game list but you can just say the pet's name and then "Sit". So for example, "Sasha, Sit!". The pet names are programed into the game and appear at the top of the screen.

Wow thanks for the quick response. I was just worried but I will just keep playing talent shows over and over until I have enough to buy all at once. Then follow your instructions. Man I swear people need to send you a case a beers or something for all the hard work you do in every guide. I have toy story 3, de blob, and marvel super hero collecting dust. Toy story 3 is a game I love due to my love of disney but I'm scared to attempt. I don't want to fail haha. But with your handy dandy complete walkthrough my fears are diminishing. Thanks again. Have a great weekend1

The "Dressed To Win" achievement for winning on a Saturday unlocked for me on a Wednesday. Maybe as long as you win wearing a DLC costume, it doesn't matter what day it's on despite the description.

EDIT: On Sunday, the "You won the Main Event two weeks in a row." achievement just popped right when I started the game, having only play the game on 6 days! It's rare when a game glitches achievements in your favor rather than against you.

Have to disagree, I found it easiest to jog on the spot and also move your arms backwards and forwards like you are really jogging and get all the bonus gems. You can actually do the whole thing just by moving your arms, but you wont get fast enough to get bonus gems.

I have done it by dropping to my knees and also just crouching, so I don't think it is actually that specific.

You can time it just a little bit after the sit marker to get all the way to the very end you can possibly go without going over, but the max points is 250 so you don't really need to. I agree the sit marker is the safest point but I get bored and play around to test the limits.

I had the Same thing Happen to me on a Monday, I just started the game and was going to do the 7th day of everything then the "Victory is Mine" Achievement popped and so did the "Best of Friends" Achievement.

Umm, guess i'm not gonna be playing this. Seems like it will take too long to 100% and I don't really have that much time left to be playing this particular one. Nice guide though. Really thorough.
