Pet Society is not only one of the most popular Facebook games (AppData figures have the game at 12th place overall with almost 14 million players), but it’s also one of the oldest, and is now celebrating its second birthday! Playfish isn’t just announcing the game’s birthday and then moving on – no sir. Instead, this week’s item theme is all about said birthday, and offers a slew of birthday party themed items for you to help your pet celebrate right along with the developer.
The theme really starts in the game’s Furniture Store, where you’ll find a Birthday Party Table, complete with food and drinks, for 800 coins, and a matching Dinner Table for 700 coins. There are also matching chairs and bags to complete the look in your living room, or whichever room of the house in which you choose to hold this celebration.
In the Market, under the Toys and Collectibles section, Plushie collectors will be able to get their hands on a 2nd Birthday Bear Plushie for 900 coins, while the Party & Gifts section of the store also offers quite a few goodies, two of which are “community building projects.”
The first of these is the ability to build a “Party Invitation,” in an effort to decorate one room in your house in the birthday party theme, with the effect lasting for a full week. To make it happen, you’ll need to collect 6 ingredients – 2 units of paper, 1 balloon and 3 markers, and you’ll need the help of your friends to “build” it. Either that, or you can purchase all six instantly for 12 Playfish Cash.
The second building project is the Surprise Birthday Box, and it requires the help of 15 friends to build. If you’d rather skip asking your friends to help you build it, you can purchase one of these boxes for 25 Playfish Cash. This is the only chance you’ll have to send one to a friend, as that must be done at the time of purchase, so keep that in mind if you wanted to give a Surprise Birthday Box as a gift.
Over in the game’s Boutique, or Cash Shop, we find two decorative miniature Birthday Cakes, each of which cost just a single Playfish Cash. Like the Surprise Birthday Box, both the Strawberry Birthday Minicake and the Kiwi Birthday Minicake can be sent to friends, so long as you do so at the time of purchase. Wait any longer than that, and you’ll be forced to keep the cake for yourself.
Finally, the game’s Clothing Store has new options for both boy and girl pets. For girl pets, a “Cute Celebration Dress” and “Cute Celebration Hat” – both in pastel colors matching the birthday party items found in the Furniture Store – are available for 400 and 200 coins, respectively. In addition, two other party dresses are available – one green and one black. For boy pets, a single outfit is available – a Green Checked Jacket and Green Checked Pants, costing 700 coins in total (500 for the jacket, 200 for the pants).
Some of these items are specifically listed as only being available for “One Week Only,” so be sure to head over to the game’s page sooner, rather than later, to make sure you can pick up all of the items you’re interested in, before they’re gone. Happy Birthday Pet Society!
