FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
How does the Community Progress work?
The community progress for The Prince and the Pocket Sized Princess is global. Contributions to the community event are automatic, all you need to do is log in and participate - no neighbours required. It doesn't matter where you are in the world.
Invite your friends and family to play - anyone you know, really! The more people that join the event and contribute, the more prizes for everyone to enjoy.
When does the Prince and the Pocket-Sized Princess start?
All special events and Hobbies for this update are scheduled for different times. Hang tight - it's a surprise! But don't worry, we've got plenty of cool features for you this update to keep busy.
How do I get the new male hairstyles?
You will have an opportunity to earn the male long hairstyles by performing the Fashion Designer hobby in the Charming Barber Hobby Event later in the update. Each collection will unlock a new hairstyle. There are 8 hairstyles to collect!
How do I unlock community prizes?
Unlike other Community Events, prizes won together by the community in The Prince and the Pocket-Sized Princess are unlocked by completing reading short snippets of story as the community Progresses. These include quick goals which, once completed, unlock the next prize and unfold the narrative of the holiday quest.
For more information on Community Events, see: Sims FreePlay Community Events

In a Sim's home:
- Build the Promotions'R'Us store - if you haven't already
- Purchase an Aerobic Step
