If you have a oven fire. Go to the sand box and one of your people will find a doorknob. They will say that they are are fixing the shed door. After they put the knob on. Go to the door mat and they will find a key to unlock the shed. In the shed is a fire egstinguisher. Hope that helps with the
Edit: still loving the game! But I think some updates can be:
-let the parents interact more with the kids like argue, time outs, etc.
-also can we please have two kids at least. My kid always says she's a bit lonely.
-maybe have a mall the family can go to so they can get out of the house.
I know this is the lite version but it does get a bit boring with only one kid.

I loved it so much after half hour of play I went straight back on apps and brought full version which is fantastic.
Has lots more to do and allows you to have upto 6 kids. Plus more challenges to beat and more items to buy. I'm currently runnin 2 families.... 1 on the free version and 1 on the full version.
I also have another app by these creators called "fish tycoon"
Which I also really enjoyed and have completed once on easy and am now working on the medium level.

So I changed my friend and she got a baby! This game is way more cool than when she had no babies.
The shed is locked, the fountain misses a part, we collect strange things... I'm sure there is some mysteries in this house!!
However i'm waiting if the game can go to 0.99$, because I can only buy these game prices.
Awesome game and never crashed on mine seriously I don't know why many people have always crashes and me no. :/
And if you want a baby go in help in menu and you'll see how. However if it is written in wants kids?: no way then it's probably because they don't wanna have a baby...
Ehh needs work

Guys like that was really cool buy what I don't like is that u leave them for a day or two and they're DeAD
Tons of Fun!
By: musicman127 - Nov 24, 2009
Ok, so when i saw this it looked like a good game that i would play for a little and then probably end up deleting it, and i did...so i could buy the full version! This game is soooo much fun, the only thing is that it can get a little aggravating to watch them walk so slow! I have a couple who has one kid, and i cannot wait until i can get back to the game! I like how when you go into the game they say that your person got a promotion, it makes me feel so proud! If you enjoy the lite version i highly reccomend you spend the cash to get the full version, it will be worth it!!!

In the lite version no variable items will show up.3. You can't fix the hose and the birdbath.4. U can only have one baby in the lite.... So go and buy the full version.5. You win by completeing task. This game is AMAZING!!!!

I love this game, it never crashes on me. This is a very good game and even though it is just the lite version, it's very time consuming game. By the way the key to the shed is under the Welcome mat. I want to get the full version, but there are many reviews that says this game crashes a lot. I really am interested in buying the full version. Although this is a great game, I think the price should be a little more reasonable, like $ 0.99. I would buy it at that price. Apple should put the full version on sale , so people who want to buy it can buy it at a reasonable price. Apple should also fix the glitches in the full version, so people with the full version can submit postive reviews. Other than that I think this is a really good game. There a few problems in the full version. In the future Apple should really read the reviews, we submit and fix their errors. Instead of just leaving them in the games. I think you should download or install this game until Apple fixes the problems in the full version and puts it at a reasonable price.

I love this game! Its a graet deal and os very entertaining! The remote is the little black thing near the entrance of the officeTo find the doornob to the shed put your person in the sand box abd the key is under the welcome mat!In the lite version you cant fix the birdbath or the hose, but you can fix the objects that are on fire, just unlock the shed and theres a fire exstiguisher inside! Also you can only have one child in this lit version, but to start the next generation, just go to the family tab and click, "next generation"

Hey those of u dorks who keep whining that the game keeps crashing, plz use it head! Just reset ur iPod! And for those of u who threw out the instruction manual, to reset ur iPod, hold down the sleep button and the home button at the same time! Ignore the sliding thingymabobber and it should go bak to the apple thing, wait for a minute or 2 and go to ur virtual families game! This shuld work.
Plz stop the bad **** bad reviews, this game us awesome! Remember, it is the lite
BTW: the remote is this little black rectangular thing, it's black, about the size of the wrappers, and could show up anywhere on the floor in the house. And plus, I think u can turn the tv on by just clickin the tv set but I'm not sure.

To those the game keeps crashing on:Try to avoid putting ur iPod/iPhone to sleep while the app is on. I found that when I do this I come out of the app and later try to go back on but it crashes. If u accidentally forgot this tip. Restart ur iPod/iPhone. It'll work fine. This is only if y'all are having the same problem I am. Hey. It's worth a shot. Going into iTunes has nothing to do with it. Sorry if it doesn't work!!Love this game. So very addicting. Please fix the crashing. That way we don't have to restart our devices. Just got my first girl out of 4 or 5 genertion!!! Yay!
how to fix things,
By: fireflowerx - Nov 6, 2009
I love this game!!! ok do anyway to open the shed: go to sandbox and pick up doorknob, they will pit the doorknob on the shed, then go to the placemat at the entrance of your house and place it person on it and they will get the key and unlock it. Fixing hose: when u go to the store look in the varied items, check about every 4 hours until you see tape, buy the tape and place it by the hose ( not the one by the sandbox) then make sure one of it pplz is taking a shower then take a different person and drag them by the hose to fix it. workshop walls: wait until wall repair kit comes up in varied items, ( by the way u have to have the hose fixed to do this) then put the kit by the green bucket by the sandbox and keep making ur lil person go to it until they start fixing it... repet over again until walls are done hope I helped!!

Everyone here are some answers you can only have one kid per generation on the lite version. After your kids go to college they don't come back until one of their parents die. Then you can bring them back by clicking family at the bottom and press new generation. My sister and I both have virtual families. The dad of my family died. So now I started the new generation and I got married and now I'm working on having another baby so I hope this answers your questions. I have a question what is the bucket for outside the house by the sandbox?
So funnnn! It's just like Sims!
By: Rapeter91 - Sep 7, 2009

I'm not sure wut bucket u need 2 unclog things. it might b the one in the laundry room, or the one by the sandbox. also, u CAN NOT fix the hose or fountain unless u upgrade 2 the full version, srry. if the app restarts, delete it, reinstall it, then play until it starts crashing, then restart yer phone, and u won't loose yer family. I hope I helped u guys, cause I wish I knew all if ths when I started I'm having no problems with crashing anymore after deleting and reinstalling 1 time, so just don't get 2 attached 2 ur first 2 families:-). btw, don't listen to the GAME HELP review under mine. none of those things will help

Best game on my iPod!
By: Music Geek who luvs bubble wrap - Sep 4, 2009
This game is so entertaining! It takes a while for things to get moving like age and stuff but it's worth it! This is probably the same as the full version except you can only have one kid at a time. Personaly, I'm not gonna bother with the full version. Get this!!!
Here's a tip:
You have to have a kid in order to continue with generations. So when both your people die, go to the family screen and go to new generation and the your only kid will show up then adopt them. The house will be the same you just have to start over like get married again. If you don't have a kid you might have to start completely over.
Hope this helps some!!
My fav app!
By: starduck03 - Aug 20, 2009
And looneytunes101 and everyone else i learned this thing i did on accident! hold down the on/off button and the home button like ur taking a screen shot for about fifteen seconds, and it automatically restarts ur ipod even if its frozen or jammed! and everyone shood get this app its just like the sims for the computer, and way better than the sims app, by the full version!
By: Magap - 03-Oct-2009
Love the game but don't know whether to buy the full version. Right, answers...
Oven fire : the sandbox is on the right of the house. Drag the adult onto the sandbox until they fine the door handle and go to put it on the shed door. Then drag them onto he welcome mat. They will find a key and open the door. When there's a fire, drag them onto it so hey know there's a fire. Then drag them onto the fire extinguishers. Try it a few times if it doesn't work.
Making a baby : drag on onto the other WHILE THEY'RE IN THE BEDROOM. If you don't, they'll only embrace.
Fixing a leaky sink: drag an adult onto the leaky sink so they acknowledge it. Then drag them onto the spanner in the workroom. They'll then go and fix it. Try it a few times if it doesn't work.
Hope that helped.
blEHhHh love it!
