Please take the time to read this page before you ask a question on this thread.  You may find your question is already answered here.
 
Some people still seem to be struggling with the Fairytale quest, even those who have read the Guide to the Fairytales, so I thought it might be useful to have a specific FAQ for the Three Little Pigs quest to try and cover the most frequently asked questions which have shown up over the past few days.  Hopefully it will help!

Due to the word limit on forum posts, I will need to split this into a couple of pages.  Please read both pages to see if your question is anwered there!

QUESTIONS ABOUT THE FAIRY

HOW DO I ATTRACT A FAIRY?

You need a toadstool which has a bubble on the top with materials in it.  The status of the toadstool will be "Attracting A Fairy".  Once you have the bubble on your toadstool, leave out one plate of Wild Berries and one empty table if you are ready for the fairy to harvest your toadstool.

HOW DO I ATTRACT MORE THAN ONE FAIRY TO MY PLATE OF WILD BERRIES?

Once the fairy has harvested the items, she won't visit that toadstool again.  There are two ways to get the fairy to keep coming back:

1.  Have more than one toadstool with a bubble on the top, attracting a fairy.  When one of them is harvested by the fairy, the other will continue to attract the fairy until she can harvest the second bubble.  Whilst you still have materials on your plate attracting the pigs, the fairy can't harvest the second bubble so she keeps coming back.

2.  Keep both plates full of Wild Berries until you are ready for the fairy to harvest the materials.  As soon as you leave out an empty plate she can come and harvest the materials, so if you keep the plates full she will keep visiting.

I HAVE AN EMPTY FOOD TABLE, BUT THE FAIRY ISN'T HARVESTING MY MATERIALS FROM THE TOADSTOOL

Make sure that you have cleared your feeding table of any wildlife spotted/diamonds earned.  The materials which the fairy harvests act like food, so the plate has to be completely empty before she can place the materials from the toadstool on the feeding table.

I SPOTTED A FAIRY IN ANOTHER GARDEN, BUT SHE COULD NOT TELL HER TALE.  WHY?

The most likely explanation is that the garden you spotted the fairy in either does not have an empty table for the fairy to leave the harvested items, or the garden owner has forgotten to clear the plate and there's still wildlife/diamonds waiting to be cleared.

QUESTIONS ABOUT THE TOADSTOOL

DOES THE TOADSTOOL ACT LIKE A MUSHROOM AND DETER MICE AND DUCKS?

No.  It is completely different to the mushrooms, and does not have any deterrent properties.  It does not attract anything other than the Fairy.

WHICH POTS DO I NEED TO USE TO GET WHICH HARVESTED ITEM?

First Little Pig collects Straw, harvested from the purple Toadstool pot
Second Little Pig collects Wood, harvested from the yellow Toadstool pot
Third Little Pig collects Bricks, harvested from the red Toadstool pot

ONCE THE FAIRY HAS HARVESTED MY MATERIALS, CAN I HARVEST THE TOADSTOOL?

Yes.  Once the materials have been harvested, the fairy will not visit again so you can harvest the toadstool.

CAN THE EMPTY POTS BE USED FOR ANYTHING ELSE?

They can only be used to plant a Fairytale Seed, and each pot will only ever make the same materials and so attract the same Little Pig/Wolf again.

QUESTIONS ABOUT THE FOOD (MIXED BERRIES)

DOES IT MATTER WHAT FOOD I USE?

The type of food you put out for the fairy (regular, organic, superfood) determines the amount of harvested materials you get for the pigs to collect, and the time between feeds.  If you use regular food, you get regular materials which will give you five visits from pigs/wolves.  If you use organic food, you will get organic materials which will give you ten visits from the pigs/wolves, and with superfood you'll get fifteen visits from the pigs/wolves.  The times which are set for each food will also apply to the harvested materials.  It's best to use a double portion of whichever kind of food you use (or use superfood) since that gives you the best chance of having five pigs spotted from one toadstool.

QUESTIONS ABOUT THE PIGS AND BIG BAD WOLF

WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS TO UNLOCK THE NEXT LEVEL OF POTS, AND WHERE CAN I SEE THEM?

You can see the requirements for the next level if you go to the Fairytales section of the Pot Shop and click the link on the left hand side to see the Second Fairy Tale.  You will see a green tick if you have completed those requirements.  To unlock the second fairy tale you need to have five of EACH Little Pig spotted in your garden.  You do not need to spot a particular number in other gardens, and you do not have to spot a particular number of any of the characters in another garden.

HOW DO I DETER THE BIG BAD WOLF?

The only way to deter the wolf is to use a Supershroom.  This is not a 100% deterrent though, so you will see some wolves even if you deter them.

DO I NEED TO USE A SUPERSHROOM?

No, it is possible to get the Little Pigs you need by using an ordinary mushroom to deter some mice and ducks.  Make sure that you use a double portion of food though, so that you have more chances to attract the five Little Pigs you need from each toadstool.

Carolyn: plant another toadstool in the relevant pot.

Sue:  from page 1:

ONCE THE FAIRY HAS HARVESTED MY MATERIALS, CAN I HARVEST THE TOADSTOOL?
 
Yes.  Once the materials have been harvested, the fairy will not visit again so you can harvest the toadstool.

Question about Lavinia and Twinky Winky Pinky Dinky Woo Woo's Garden (see link with her post above):
I hope no changes happen to it after I ask my question. Am using this garden as an example to help me clear up some confusion.
The instructions from Tracey say that the fairy will only visit once, but her fairy has been visiting and is being spotted many times. HOW? Will the fairy still show up if she harvests her toadstool? Am I missing something?

Could it be that originally there was no second plate for materials to be harvested so the fairy kept showing up?
Now that the straw has been harvested, (and the wood before that), will the fairy continue to show up?
Lavinia, did you have more than one toadstool? I see a post from Sandra above suggesting Lavinia dump the rest of her wood to have an empty plate for the straw.

Sorry if my questions are confusing, but I'm still confused! Hope someone can make sense of what I'm trying to understand, because I'm confusing myself more with this post. LOL!

BTW, Thanks, Lavinia, for the little pig with straw! That was a nice surprise. Hope more show up.

Hi Yolanda - the fairy will keep visiting if you have more than one toadstool attracting a fairy - it works like this Ist fairy visits toadstool one and harvests lets say bricks and puts them on the empty plate....then the 2 nd fairy visits the 2nd toadstool but because there isn't an empty plate she can't harvest say the straw so she keeps returning as long as there are berries out untill she finds an empty plate...so yes you had partially worked it out for yourself already :)

Just to add that if the fairy visits and harvest the materials and places them on the empty plate then she won't visit again and you can harvest that mushroom.
