Helping Gulliver

Seren Morgan-Roberts


You’ll find Gulliver washed up on your beaches fairly often. He will need your help fixing his communicator so that he can return to his shipmates.

Fixing the Communicator

When Gulliver fell overboard, he broke his communicator. He needs your help to find the five missing communicator pieces.

Firstly, you’ll need to find small holes in the sand that squirt out water. These holes are usually an indication of manila clams which can be made into fish bait. But when Gulliver is around, you will dig up communicator parts. You’ll need to run along your beaches and occasionally stop to look for the little holes in the sand.

Once you have all five communicator parts, head back to Gulliver. He can then fix up his communicator. The next day, you’ll find a gift in your letterbox from Gulliver as thanks. Helping Gulliver may feel a bit tedious after a few times, but it’s worth your while to help him whenever you can. When you’ve helped him thirty times, he will give you the DIY recipe for the Golden Shovel!
