Light-bulbNeed to know about snowmen? Read this!!!

Snowmen are I think one of the most helpful things to have if you play farmville. Here is why, they give you watering cans. Watering cans are in short supply they are not shared very often, only if someone is watering a seedling already, with the new duck ponds or if someone harvests one of their snowmen. If you are interested in growing trees you should have a lot of snowmen. You need 10 watering cans to grow 1 tree.  There are 3 levels for each snowman. As you complete each level you will get 1 watering can for a total of 3 for a Dancing snowman. It is easier in my opinion to complete the 2nd and 3rd levels than it is the first.  Each of the levels are as follows:
Pile of snow, Smiling snowman, Dapper snowman and Dancing snowman.

You need 10 piles of snow and a scarf to complete the Smiling snowman level. = 1 Watering Can

You need 5 piles of snow and 3 snowman buttons to complete the Dapper snowman level. = 2 Watering Cans

You need 2 piles of snow and 1 magic hat to complete the Dancing snowman level. = 3 watering Cans

When you buy the snowman it comes with 1 pile of snow already. So you really only need 9 for the first level. There are 4 ways that I know of that you can get the snowman parts listed above.

First Snag them. FV recently has not been allowing me to share the posts. Hopefully you will have some luck here.

Second The snowball fight. When a friend visits your farm and throws a snowball at you,  you can "retaliate" by clicking on the link posted on your wall, it will give you a pile of snow about 50% of the time.

The Third way to get the parts is by asking your friends using the "ask for more" link inside your snowman. You are only allowed to ask 3 friends for parts within 24 hrs. Your friend has to click the link and share it back with you, so make sure you tell your friend about it so they know to look for it. Using this method your friend sends you a gift request which you need to go and accept.

The Fourth way and the best way is to ask for the parts needed by using the "farmville links for the snowmen" provided by one of the members here. If you have not used these then you should use them immediately! You are able to ask 40 of your neighbors every 24 hrs, to send you parts which go straight to your gift box. The link to the page is provided below.

I have built 26 snowmen x 3 watering cans a day = 78 watering cans every day. I no longer have to ask any of my friends/neighbors for watering cans because of the snowmen. And I have more than 65 orchards. My friends are also grateful, because everyday I post 25+ Watering cans to my wall. Which helps them grow their mystery seedlings.

There is still 15 days left to build them up. So act quick!

LANCE! Thanks so much for this info! And the links! I built 7 snowmen on my account and helped my daughter do the same! We did it in about 24 hours. On EVERY request i put (ok i begged lol) an extra "please i only have 2days to finish. THANKS!" so that it stood out! and everytime i posted a requets from inside the snowman i did the same like "Thanks Silvia for the help!" I do this on all posts where i need help. THEN if i really REALLY need the help i post directly to that persons page and ask "Sofia, did you get my request here for some SNOW! THanks bunches!" My loyal FV playing friends, i will TEXT and tell them to look in their requests! hahahhaaa so they also do this all to me! THATS how i got it done! I have a small posse of friends who if i am REALLY in need of stuff i will "SPAM" THEIR PAGES AND FONES! HAHAHA! It kan be done (even without texting) but you gotta be willing to BEG for what you need.
@DACLAUD, that really bites. I hate that. And wen i figure out that a certain person(s) is not responding to my requests for help, i deny theirs wen they ask. Sorry i knw its childish but dont ask for the help you arent willing to give. This game requires teamwork. Thats all there is to it! =D good luck i think we only have a few hours left!


The only bad part is the fact that not everyone will help you build the damn snowmen or see the wall post for that matter! I seriously have crappy luck when it comes to the 3 random neighbors it selects to give me snowman parts.

Cityville is worse and it took me 2 months just to collect 5 snowflakes in spite of the fact that I kept on spamming it twice a day. The problem is that most people don't pay attention to these things because their walls get filled up too quickly.


I am so frustrated my friends have all gotten multiple snowmen...but i have finished mine and it still won't let me buy another one in the market. it says it's locked limit one? Am i missing something??


Does anyone know how many neighbors can click the link when we share the collecting?


@Nicole, I also did not have any issues with the snowmen at first, but am having some now. I believe they gave everyone the cash that had a snowman from the start. I am not sure on why they gave it out, but am grateful for the cash so I am not complaining. Good luck with your snowmen!


@Lance, or Anyone else with this issue....When the snowman was first released, in the midst of building my first one,Zynga sent me a msg stating they apologized for any inconvience I experienced with the snowman, and refunded me a nice amount of FV cash. I had/have no idea why, as I didnt experience any issues that I was aware of. Anyone have feedback on this? I only reached level 2 on my first snowman, and I did not know we could have more than one until recently, so not sure i can pull off making a bunch to get water cans...wish me luck!


@Shelly, heres's a post with a linkof the hat that you can request your friends:


how do i get the hat for the snowman


It really works! My goal is to be self-sufficient on my farm so I can play, share, and help others and not rely on anyone else to exist. This is the perfect way for me to have enough water to care for my seedlings. I'm up to 11 now, and climbing. Its great!


Also snowmen are on sale in the market place under "decorations" for 5,000 coins. You are limited to one at a time. Once the first level is complete you can purchase another snowman.


Wow awesome trick! this is very usefull im always needing water buckets!!!!


I have recently been having issues trying to build my snowmen. I have noticed that I can still build them, but only 1 part at a time. I have to refresh every single time after I use 1 part. If I try and use more than that, I get an "out of sync" but still saves the 1 part.
