One of the Toy Shop Mini games gives it as a reward. I would have to log into the game to find out which one for sure, but I think it's the one that requires 16 hammers. Okay, I just went to the game to make sure and its definitely the Toy Shop game that requires 16 hammers which is the rocking horse. I've never had it not drop playing that game so good luck!!
I finally had it drop a few times in the toy shop. I was at level 3/15 in the professional area when I got it. That seems to be par for the course for me at least with the items that require a lot of items. It always seems to drop for me at just that level. Same thing happened with the final 3 of the new quests we received. Took forever, but I finally got them.
I'm having the same problem. I've been trying to find it in the carnival (the highlighted 'Quest' for the cotton stuffed cutie), which I'm currently 5/20 in the professional level. It just isn't popping up at all. I've been trying the mini game at the toy shop too, and that hasn't worked either. Any suggestions? I'm just absolutely stuck at this point and I wish there was a way to continue on with this game....
I don't believe the Cotton Stuffed Cutie drops in the Carnival until you hit the master level. It may have dropped very infrequently before I hit master. Since I've hit master it seems to drop 1/4 plays. Hope that helps.
