never mind, i had the books wrong. they must not be in the same order for everyone.
Ok. Would someone please tell me where to get the R typewriter key and also how to get past the cemetery/cliff location?
How do you get into a hidden object scene once you've found all of the objects and have gotten out of it?
Why should you want this? If this scene is needed again later, it will sparkle again :)
R- typewriter key
The R was in the search scene, coming after you saw the video with the twins. When you didn't see the video with the twins, you have a glitch, a few people had discoverd. For most of them it was helpful to start the game all over again
You can't reach the cliff location from the cemetry - You will come there, after finding the R - this will help you open the last door and behind there you will be able to come there
0h balls! my game was the one with the empty coffins where the twins are supposed to be. :( i start over? but decided to forgo sleep for this. awwwww....
For those having a hard time with the Whack-A-Troll game:
First, remember not to whack the red trolls, you lose points for that. And you have to hit them on the head to score (body shots don't count).
If you score a hundred points or more, something DOES change on the scoreboard, but it is subtle - no bells and whistles, no major production. Search the scoreboard with your cursor and you will find something to click on and save.
HELP! I am missing one heart and I still have the shovel in my inventory. Where do I use the shovel? Where are all of the hearts supposed to be. I have been all over the place more than 5 times. THANKS
I'm stuck at Victor's book case, I can't figure out what order the books go in. I've watched the video, but can't see the top shelf of books. Is there anything I'm missing?
Please have a look at the walkthrough on top of the comments. You will find a screenshot there, where you can see the order of the books :)
Hi ive been stuck in the graveyard for a couple of hours the last clue i got was the pickaxe i dont know what to do im i suppose to jump over the cliff how to i find the next step bx9w7u
@Trell - graveyard
No, you do not have to jump over the cliff :) Did you already cut the bushes, right side? And played the game, hidden behind? If not - this is the next, you have to do. If yes, than you have to back to the fireplace inside the house. It also contains a puzzle
I hope, that already helps, otherwise please let me know :)
Is there anyone who can help me in solving a puzzle on the chick skelton. I been trying for three days and I cannot the arm and legs where they are to put. I try some many moves and it does not help. Please help me.
Sue - Do you mean the puzzle on the gate door in the garden?
There is a piece of paper in the kitchen with the correct orientation of the arms and legs.
Yes, the puzzle on the gate door of the garden. In the Kitchen there was a picture of a person on the wall with there arms and legs in position,but still cannot get it.
@Sue - gate door
When the picture at the kitchen wall does not work, try the one in your book. You have to reproduce the same positions exactly
Do not have a book. What book are you talking about? If it the Clue Book I try it and it still not working.
@Sue - Skeleton Puzzle
I'm talking about the book, you have on the bottom left, where all clues and your progress is written down.
-You have to click on each limb until it forms the correct diagram
-Keep in mind that the left arm has to go below the left leg
Please have a look at the screenshot, how it looked for me. Maybe this helps: Skeleton-Puzzle
I am stuck on the cash register, What is the sequence of lighting the cash register. Inside is a piece of paper with number on it. the numbers are 5392. Please help. I am also suck on the telephone and the fuse box
Also I have not got the bucket out of the wishing well yet. What am I doing wrong.
@Sue - Cash register/fuse box
Hey Sue, good to see that you managed the puzzle at the garden gate :)
When you know, what the number inside the cash register is, then you already know, how to open it? For in case that not: top row 4 - 8 - 3, middle row 9 - 1 - 5, bottom row 2 - 6 - 7
With the numbers in mind you found inside the cash register, you click the fuse box in the back above the oven
You have to change the code according to the numbers you found in the cash register
The green button changes the position of the arrow
The yellow button change the numbers
Place the arrow at the number you want to change and click then the yellow button, till the right number appears
Do this, till you have the code 5392
Or did you mean the fuse box in the toystore cellar? For this one you might like to have a look at the screenshot
Or you don't know, how to open this fuse box? Use the bug repellent, you found in the gingerbread house
After fixing the fuses, go upstairs and call the number, you found at the back of the flower poster in the ginger bread house.
For the bucket in the wishing well look a little above and use the long stick from your inventory (the one you found in the search scene left side after entering the first time the middle door)
I am still confuse with the fuse box behind the stove and still canot get it. please help. Also I am stuck on the boarded-up window on the porch. Also the stove where I get the temp at 600 but cannot open the door. Please help me.
Sue - code for phone puzzle
Have a look at the screenshot - Maybe this helps you to understand the puzzle :)
The stove - do you use the potholder to change the temperature according to the one you found at the door right side of the schoolhouse? On the top of the oven you will see a pattern with red circles. Go back to that door at the school house and create the pattern from the oven by simply clicking the circles at the door.
Boarded up window? - Sorry, I don't know where this is. Can you give me a bit more information about the location?
The Fuse Box that I am talking about is in the General Store. I got it open but there is a fuse missing . Where do I find it and what to do next. also I cannot find the cirlcle you where talking about. The board-up window is on the porch with a haning plant and a open chest. Also there is a puzzle taht I cannot open. It is a door with a picture on the right side of it and a knob on the left side with couple of circles in the middle. please help!
- The fuse: you will it find later on in the first search scene in the Toy Store (Toys for Brats). For this you have to solve all puzzles at the place you are now and open the left door.
To go on, you now enter the elevator. Click the control box left to the elevator and click the lever (from your inventory) on it. Click the control box again after leaving close-up view.
Leave the elevator when the doors open.
- The boarded window: It is not important, as you already entered the house at the beginning of the game
- Oven/stove: Don't mind about the circles, you will see later in the game, what I was talking about. Its another oven. And you do not have to open the door of this oven.
-The door puzzle: You can only solve that puzzle, when you solve all puzzles and search scenes, at the places where you are now.
In my inventory I have Machine Belt,Damp Cloth,Hot Pad, Funnel and A Screwdriver. I still stuck on everything. Please help get pass this. Also in the begining of the Scene there is a Plaque which has numbers and a heart. Where would I find the heart. Please gave me so hints or clues. Also I do not know where to find the Key for the elevator.
The plaque with the numbers and the heart you will not need before close to the end of the game
Same for the elevator key
As you have the funnel, you already entered the left door and did the first search scene there - next step would be to enter the toystore
You should do two search scenes there - one right side, when you come in, one when you go straight ahead through the door
Click the old phone and some numbers will be copied in the book - you do not need them now
After that go down in the celler and do the puzzle, wich is hidden under the cloth in the left upper corner
After doing this puzzle, you go have to go to the beauty parlor, which you reach by the middle door, as before
If you already have done all this, please come back, I'm sure, we can work that out :)
Please have a look at your mail account :)
Have done all that you mention. Just to let you know I am not German. I speak English. I am stuck on the puzzle and cannot go anywhere. Please help me. I try my best.
Which puzzle exactly? Which house? Im not sure, where you are in the moment.
First I still do not have the R key for the typewriter. Would like to know the sequence in opening the door that as the picture on the right side and the knob on the left side. I item I am talking about is the one that as the tempeture scratch into the wood next to the schoolhouse. Also in the kitchen still sparkle and I know I need to find the handle ( I think) for the cabinets. In the cellar of the house is there anything about the boiler I need to know.
-There are 4 buttons on the left side of the page, each button has a different function.
- Your goal is to align the picture with the little girl facing up and the logo at the bottom
- Every button has two colors
- Clicking the dark part moves the rings against the clock
- Clicking the light part moves the rings clockwise
- I couldnt find any logic behind it and what the diffrent buttons do is always random
- You always have the option to skip a puzzle
- Once the puzzle is complete, click on the door to enter.
-The typewriter you will find later on, after you freed the twins
When some is sparkling, click it and do the search scene :)
The handle/metal lever/
- There is metal lever in the game, that you use for the elevator, but I think, you already have this - and there is a door knob, you will find in the 2 search scene in the toystore, which you will need later in the gingerbread house, the one, you have to solve the puzzle first
Cellar - boiler
You will have to to fill there a jar later, after entering the gingerbread house
I'm sure, that you will be able to go further and find out more, when you enter the gingerbread house
I am talking about the puzzle that is on the side of the schoolhouse which the puzzle as a knob on the left side and a picture on the right side and have circles in the middle. There is no skip button on it. What am I going to do because I am so confuse that I can not figure out the puzzle. If there was a way to talk to you in person instead on line,it would help me to understand it better. In the schoolhouse there are some numbers on the blackboard. Does this mean anything right now.
Hi there, i found the 10 hearts and put them in the thing, nothing seems to have happened, what am i meant to do now? i dont have any things in my inventory either?
been great help so far!!
Ruth - Did you also put in
Hi Kayleigh, Did you get my e-mail? Can you put the Screenshot of the books order for me so I can keep on going with the game.
Sue - Libary - order of books
Hi Sue, here we go: Screenshot of the library books
The damp cloth will come a little later in the game :)
Are there any other games that are similar? I love hidden object games, but this is the only one I've found with the "adventure" style screenplay. I'm getting bored of games where you just click on a map to see a new puzzle. Someone PLEASE tell me there is something out there comparable to this for downloading!
Hi Jamie - you're in luck. There have been several good hidden object games that have been going down the adventure path lately.
Check out this page:
And look for the entries with a pink mushroom, which indicates "adventure".
You will find several there you may like.
Hey, can anyone help me? I got through the middle door. I've been to the salon and the store, down to the cave. Everything. But I have no idea what to do next. I'm still missing a marble and some typewriter keys. The only supplies I have are the stick, wet rag, duck tape, the horn, and something else but I can't remember. Please help.
You still have the horn, so it seems, you did not enter the gate at the left side of the cave. When you do so, you will already find more to do :)
Thank you very much Kayleigh ...
Hey. I need someone's help. I have yet to be able to get all the power to the phone in the toy store. Also, any other help you can give me in my inventor wet rag, stick screwdriver, funnel, rope, torn canvas, and jar of fuel... please help. Thanks in advance to any who can help.
Jennifer - inventory items
The phone in the toy store
- You have to go through the door into the cellar - there is a fuse box. After you got rid of the cockroaches (for this you need something, you do not have in your inventory yet. So you will have to go back to other locations to see, if new search scenes came up), you will have to connect the fuses.
#Start at the burning lamp.
#You can only connect lamps wich are connected with wires.
#Each lamp you can only click once.
#You can only connect the last burning lamp with a non-burning lamp
For the solution please have a look at this screenshot
Wet rag (I think you mean the damp cloth?), jar of fuel, stick....
Most of your inventory items, you will need later on in the game
Return to Ravenhearst is not a very linear games. Items you found at the beginning, might be used nearly at the end. Things, you find behind the middle door might be needed for a puzzle in a location behind the left door. You will have to go back and forth - finding something or discovering a new puzzle might have opened somewhere else a new puzzle scene
On top of the comments, you will find a walkthrough, that can help you :) - But of course, please come back to the comments, when something is not clear. I 'll be glad to answer your questions as good as I can.
I'm stuck... I have a funnel, stick, jar of gas, rope, damp cloth and screw driver. I just unlocked the cellar but there is no puzzle or cloth with puzzle underneath. Am I missing something!?
Which cellar did you unlock?The one left next to the schoolhouse?There you have to do something else, you won't be able to do, before you did not solve the telephone puzzle in the toy store cellar - which is the cellar with the puzzle under the cloth :)
the part on the backyard!
in the door that have like a bird!
how i can do that? im stuck in that! someone help please :D
Whack a Troll
What do you do when you're 70 and can't click fast enough to get game done? I just can't get because of not being fast enough so I end up without the coin. Any idea's??
I am missing the last heart, I have seen posts but no answers yet. Is there a list of places to look? Any help would be great.
Charlie - last heart
The only heart all players do have at the same place is the one in Emma's hand. The other hearts can be everywhere. You have to look at every place you have been before for search scenes. There is no list, as the search scenes with the hearts are unfortunally random
I unlocked the cellar next to the school house. All that is down there is the thing to sharpen the knife. I don't know what to do next im totally stuck.. I still need to do the phone but i don't know if i have the stuff to do it.
@stephanie - school house cellar
- To sharpen the knife, you have to use the belt from your inventory
- for the telephone box puzzle you need the bug repellent, you got it in the school house search scene
- This is a screenshot how to solve the puzzle inside the telephone box Please click here to see it
-When the phone works, you will need the telephone number from the flower poster in the gingerbread house.
- The phone will open the door next to it
-With the knife you need to to a little operation at the teddy in the toystore cellar
I hope, on of the tips help you to move on :)
Help! I found the well only once...long time ago. Where is it?
Has anyone else had a problem getting the nightstand open? I have played to that point 4 times, even following every step in the walkthrough and when I take the hammer out to remove the nails it does however I drawer will not open. No matter what I do from that point on and I can't get the paint remover out...
Please Help me!
HELP..I can not find the potholder that is susposed to be in the search scene in the gingerbread house at the table. I completed that seach scene but there was not a potholder there and it will not let me re search it for the pot holder
Help! I dropped my stick in the muck at the top of the well. I couldnt get my bucket.
what do i have to do with that stove and how do i do it, and how do you unlock that celler next to the school
Hi, I wonder about the phone number riddle at the end of the game, why is it the blind mice is "3" ?
I still don't get it. Really hope someone can explain
kathyrn - The well is the first scene after the gate when you enter the premises.
prememorie - Are you sure all four nails have been removed? Is the hammer still in your inventory?
scamp0753 - Is this your first or second visit to the gingerbread house? If you have been there twice and still not found the potholder, all you can do is keep looking at the available sparkling areas until you find it.
chris - The stove and the cellar:
Click to the left of the schoolhouse and notice an etching of a temperature (it will vary). The stove needs to be that temperature. You can change it by holding the potholder. When you've changed the temperature, the stove will reveal an image you need to open the cabinet.
lucky - What do you mean you dropped your stick?
How can I ever thank you! I guess the old eyes let me down and now thanks to you the drawer is open...
I am s-t-u-c-k, I can not figure out the path to get all the lights to light for the phone.
Could someone help me out please????
HELP! I'm really stuck. I can't go any further.
I've run out of sparkling searches. Can't get
to the rusty knife in the well or get the
I really need desperate help. I cannot get out of victors attic. I have no idea where to go to get out of here. I think I may be goin crazy. Can somebody please help me?
sweetangel - Do you have the
..axe yet? You're going to need to chop your way out a window...

jiya - order of books
You can look the video as often as you want. If this does not help, please have a look at the walkthrough on top. You will find a screenshot how to place the books there
Unable to get into the basement. Help.
I am stuck on the lightbulb puzzle in the graveyard. I started from the outside and am working in to no avail! Help!
I've just about to the end of this. I have found all but 1 heart and have the corner of the twins picture left in my inventory. Where does it belong?
I need some help, i have got to the part where i have to enter four different codes, to get me to the lowest part of the cavern off the elevator, i have been playing all day and still have not figured out the codes......i keeep looking at the weather vane on top of the house, but am getting frustrated...please help......
how do you get in the toy store cellar
Kathy - The codes for the elevator..
..are listed in your notebook. They are the four numbers you have seen with card suits throughout the game.
Ashley - Do you mean the door next to the phone in the toy store? If so,
.. you need to do the fuse box puzzle in the basement and then dial the correct phone number.
Squash - I thought that picture..
..went on the painting of the twins in the beauty salon? Did you already do that?
Penny - Which basement?
How do i get the hammer to open the nightstand?
I'm stuck, i just can't find it anywhere..
A - According to the inventory list in the walkthrough section it should be in the toy store - have you searched there already?
Ok guys, I'm stuck. I can't get the back door unstuck. I also can't seem to figure out the pattern for the phone connector in the basement . Please help me!! And also I can't find the R for the last door.
If you look through the walkthrough you will find a screenshot showing the exact pattern for the phone connector. In the "List of All Inventory Items" you can find the location of the R key.
Where is the toy store?
The toy store is through the left door in the basement, the door with the marble puzzle. I think it's called "Toys for Brats".
Is this the phone connector puzzle you are looking for? Or is it some other phone puzzle?
But how do you get the last marble?
I have not got the typewriter "T" or the golden key... How do i get these things? I can see you must have these, before you can get the 4'th marble..
T - finding inventory items
Please have a look at the top of the comments. You will find there a list with all inventory items and the place, where to find them.
yes thank u for ur help. i just finished the game. good luck to everyone.
How do you solve the puzzle with the marbles in the interconnecting circles? I don't know what to do. I have all the marbles in place but just keep turning and turning the circles. Don't know what the object is. Thanks.
gerri - If I'm understanding you, I think that's the puzzle where you have to rotate the circles until all the yellow marbles are in the top part and all the blue ones are in the bottom with the red ones in the middle. Is this the right one?
I put all of the hearts in and nothing happened. I don't know what numbers 1-17 people are talking about.
I agree with sparc. I have all the hearts in, including the center jeweled one and I can't find the puzzle called control panel. Help!
Gerri, you just have to keep rotating the circles until they are all in the right place. There is a spoiler, lol. Lots are random though.
For anyone who is having trouble with
the password the Dominoe Puzzle
eliminate the doubles first, the double 2 is the only one that is duplicated
Nevermind about the control panel at the end. I found it and finished the game!!!
I tried using the hammer on the drawer in the beauty parlour and I removed all the nails but it seems that the drawer wont open.. is there something else I should do? thx in advance!! (:
smilingt - Are you absolutely sure you removed all four nails? There's nothing else keeping the drawer closed..
so i'm at the finale and cant seem to get the numbers to line in order right...any tips?
Had to start over. How do i open the door that takes me to the place where i need the machine belt?
Nevermind. Figured out how to open the door. I finished the puzzle for the phone in the toy shop.
I put in the # off the pic, but nothing happened.
What am i doing wrong?
[edit: spoiler added. -eileen]
janelle - Have you..
..gotten the pattern from the stove? The stove needs to be set at the temperature found on the side of the schoolhouse. Then a pattern will appear in the circles on top of the stove. Use that pattern to open the door next to the schoolhouse.
Jeni - For the final puzzle,
..once you get the first couple numbers in order however you can, for each subsequent number, count if there is an even or odd number of digits between its current and desired location. If it is even, bring the new number to the next to last location, e.g. 1243. If it is odd, rotate it from the front of the list through your sorted numbers, e.g. 4123. Hope this makes sense.
Janelle - Did you get the number from..
..inside the closet in the Gingerbread House?
Need help finding gas for jar for cable car. I've been to the gingerbread house, but missed the gas. And is there an easy way to get the coin other than playing wack a mole? Thanks, Charlie732
eileen - well apparently the nails are gone but when I click the drawer it says that drawer is still closed because of the nails present.. any ideas?
