Can't get Jeb statue

Have you finished the tutorial? I think there might be a minimum level to be able to unlock it..

    I'm at level 16 already and just remembered it. I tried on and off task for homer and nothing. Maybe it's a higher level

    I don't think so. I remember getting it almost right away. It was a long time ago and my memory is pretty bad. I don't know.

    I'm quite certain that I got it before level 16. Try with different tasks. Try with no tasks. Maybe your tapping too fast or too slow. My recollection was that he was making some response every time I tapped him. I didn't keep count of the taps. I just tapped him until it popped up. You might also check your inventory to make sure you didn't just miss the notification.

    Yeah I got it right away as well don't think there was a level req. placed. Perhaps there is a game bug, try refreshing the game and if it doesn't work by tomorrow after a re-install, contact support!

    Thanks for the replies. I'll keep at it for a while and see if it pops up

    Yeah, I've heard it can sometimes take a lot more than 10 taps.

    It is incredibly finicky. Of my 5 feeder towns, I got it on the first attempt in 1 or 2. It took days and many attempts in another 1-2. And in the remaining 1-2, I still haven't gotten it yet, though admittedly, I haven't really been trying. I'm not sure if my success rate varied by device (ipad vs. android phone), zoom level, or Homer task status.

    Try moving the kiddie pool to an open field that has no nearby decorations or buildings, send homer to task in it, then tap him repeatedly. Don't pay any attention to the Homer popup. It will either work without problems or you won't have any success at all. Good luck!

    I've had the same problem with my latest feeder town. It didnt matter which level you were at, I got it in my other 3 feeders, no problem, as soon as Homers 'play with myPad' quest became available. I have tried so much, in many ways, for ever-increasing lengths of time, whilst doing different tasks, with this last town over the last 3 weeks and nothing... All you get is Homer chuckling and muttering but the neither the statue or donuts drop so I've just given up now :(

    Started a new town out of boredom and the Jeb statue things not working. Any ideas?


    Thanks

    You can only get him once on a device. I've got 3 towns, all started on the same device, only 1 Jeb.

    Try starting a new town on a completely different device.

    Alternatively, you might try uninstalling TSTO completely, then reinstall it and play your 'new' town first and see if you can get the statue. I assume you already have the statue in your previous town, so it will still be there when you log that town in on your device.

    I thought I had completely missed out on the Jeb statue. I started playing in Dec 2013 and no Jeb. Nope, not in my inventory and this is my ONLY Springfield. I will try the suggestion to have Homer in the pool away from any other buildings or decorations.

    Did you tap on Homer 10 times to get it?

    This is NOT true.

    I do recall Homer has to be standing still. so the mypad or the kiddie pool should work. I got it, Krustyland while he was going the ring toss. (It was put in storage with a Springfield only tag) (I was level 34 at the time )

    It is 10 taps, I believe I recall him giggling which indicates you are doing it right

    He doesn't have to be on a task even. You can open his task window, and then tap him 10 times, and he will giggle and all that.

    Makes it easier to do than when he is on a task. Maybe that'll help.

    I have two towns, both on the same device, and both with Jebediah Statue.

    What would even be the point of restricting it?

    and where did you hear this rumor in the first place?

    What exactly have you tried?
    Have you tapped on Homer 10 times repeatedly while he giggles?
