neither can I.

I just use the "skip" so I can go on.

Guys, can you tell us where we're messing up? Is there a specific place that we have to click to make the arms move?
Picture might help.

I can't get the arms to set up right either. I am comparing it to the walkthrough and it still doesn't work. I also do not have an option to skip this.

You need to refer to your picture in the journal and then click on the various parts of the arms to make him look the one in the picture. It only takes a few clicks.

I know what I have to do - but it didn't matter WHERE I clicked on the doll, the arms didn't move!!!!
everything else worked in the game so I can't say it's the program; just that puzzle.

Sorry if you've tried this but by clicking do you mean actually just clicking? The reason I ask is that you have to click and drag. Hope that make sense.

Welcome to the Pond, Roseary! This is a great place to get help with your games.

I checked our House of 1000 Doors: Family Secrets Walkthrough, and it does look like you'll be able to skip this puzzle after the button loads. If you click here you'll see a screenshot of how the gondolier's arms should look, and in the bottom right-hand side of the screen there is also a purple Skip Button. (You can also click the other blue text to go to the full walkthrough in case you'd like to check it out.)

Hope that helps!

Thanks for the reply, but i've been on the walkthrough, put the arms exactly ( or so i think)as the picture, but no go. I've also waited for the hint button to change to skip for 10 mins and it doesn't. Any other way to get past this ?

I also have a problem with the gondoleer arms. I have spent at least 30 minutes trying to make it look like the walk-through picture [actually have the pictures side-by-side] . I had 2 friends try and we have not been successful. There is no SKIP option so I am stuck and cannot finish the game. Very annoying. Is it possible that the SKIP button is in the CE and not the regular game?

I finally figured this out after being stuck for 2 days! I had skipped ahead a little and missed a task. You need to collect the iris flower from the window with the gondolier, use your knife,then FINISH the still life painting and give it to the little girl. You will then get a drawing of the gondolier in your journal. Return to the attic area and try again to adjust the arms. It should be rather easy, but if you have trouble, the 'SKIP' option is now visible. It was not there for me until AFTER I had the drawing in my journal. Hope this helps!

Also, when I had the right picture and was having trouble making the arms move, I moved the oar. That seemed to free up the arms so I could move them around easier. "Move" = click and drag, btw.
