Registering other collectible figures’ secret codes unlocks even more Secret Diary Goals and exclusive items. The figurines are not only a great addition to the game, but also stand alone as a wonderful addition to any collector’s shelves.

What I thought: I received a cute bunny figurine that goes along with this game. I haven't played Tail Towns Friends much yet. I just started it on Facebook. So far, it's pretty fun. There are little, easy challenges like doing things on a "farm", harvesting apples, planting new trees, etc. There is a story that follows along the whole game. You are talking to several characters and they lead you to others for new tasks. It reminds me a little of the game Alice Greenthumbs or similar ones if you've played those. This one seems to be more involved with the story.

I would definitely say this is a game for adults/older kids. You have to be able to follow the dialog to figure what to do next and what is going on. It's not something my son could play. The figurine is cute. If you're into collecting knick knacks like that, they would be cute if you had several together. I don't think mine is something that I'll really use, but I don't have little knick knacks like that around my house. However, the character figurines come with a code that you can use in the game, so it makes it more fun to collect and get new codes.'s a fun new game.

Where to buy: The game is available for free on Facebook. You can find the figurines in stores and online.
