Nougat Toffeetuff: "Out of all the fairies, mine has to be an adventurous one!"

Joydina Interactions

When talking to Joydina, she's (1) always interested in something around her and then (2) reacts to being told to go home. Your statements are the same every time.

  • Joydina: "Look at all these gifts!"
    • You: "Nougat sent me, he is very worried. Please go home to him."
    • Joydina: "Don't open until Christmas I suppose!"
    • You: "You better be off." or "See you later."
  • "The trees are so lovely this time of year."
    • "But I'm barely-- I'm only a few feet-- okay fine!"
  • "Is Jingle Ding still there? I hope not!"
    • "Probably for the best. Jingle Ding is scary!"
  • "Krampus Kringle doesn't scare me!"
    • "Krampus is getting off lucky today! But right you are."
  • "Do you think Sugar Plum King is edible?"
    • "I mean Sugar Plums are soooo good... just one... little... nibble..."
  • "Look at how pretty this tree is!"
    • "Shucks, I was having fun here. I suppose you are right though. Thanks, <Player Name>."
  • "I claim this island as my own!"
    • "It is hardly an island after all. I guess you're right."
  • "If I were bigger I would craft toys for the little boys and girls."
    • "But I'm not bigger, so I'll just get toys instead!"
  • "If I am brave enough, I could head through the cave to Ardent City."
    • "Oh, alright. Ardent City would be way too warm anyway."
  • "I can take him, I can!"
    • Okay. I bet Grinchta could sit on me and squash me like a bug anyway."

Upon Return

Nougat Toffeetuff: "Did you find her?"

You: "Yes, I found her. She should be home soon."

You: "Farewell."
