To get the Dream Hat in the 2006, you simply buy it. The one for Bastok is in Port Bastok, near the North Gustaburg zone. San'doria is in Northern San d'oria, near the Ronfaure zone. And...I'm not sure about Windurst. Sorry about that. =S

It costs 10k. You can also buy all 3 Christmas Trees for 10k each too.

As for the Dream Hat +1...I'm not sure how to get it.
For the love or your party

If you are a level 40+ samurai, no matter how cute you think the hat is, your pt members probably disagree. Please do not wear this to a party and fight. ;_;

Okay, it's been 3 days and I still haven't gotten the special present.

I got my Bastok tree, stuffed it in my mog, did the letter quest, then gave presents until i had caravans of fame, then i used the moogle warp. Next day I went into my Bastok mog house and no special present, so I passed out more gifts until I was sure I had max again. Next day, nothing under the tree. Help? Do I need more than 1 tree?

This is exactly how i got my dreamhat +1
My hometown is Bastok
I got the Sandoria tree first, then the bastok tree and the Windhurst tree last.
i traveled back to Sandoria
i delivered 6 presents in Sandoria to 6 different children
I waited each full game day for the smilebringer to give me a free present delivering them one at a time. i purchased one $1500 present for a total of 6.. after the 6th present i checked the moogles message near the Auction House in South Sandoria.
He told me i have brought Caravan loads of joy
i took my chocobo to Bastok
canceled my rentaroom in sandoria. and waited for the next game day. i checked my moogle house and he told me i had a special present which came from under the windhurtian tree..

Kids like presents, right?
# Dec 21 2004 at 11:10 PM Rating: Decent
Has anyone tried giving away the Special Present to a kid? It will let you put the present into the Trade box (not always true for rare/ex items), but I chickened out before doing it, and I don't have an alt I can use.

Just something to try, if you dare.

By the way, you can get the regular Dream Hat in any town, not just your hometown as someone said above.

I just blew a whole bunch of money to give joy for the Dream Hat +1..... It was worth it though. Every 24 real hours it dispenses ginger cookies which boost mp by 10. Too bad the ginger cookies are useless cause I don't have mp.

After having done this quest in Sandy & Windy I would add. Don't do it in Windy if you have access to Sandy or Bastok. The Tarutaru adults & kiddies all look alike.
Getting the Dream Hat +1
# Dec 19 2004 at 2:20 PM Rating: Decent
Well, I spent 3 days trying to get the Dream Hat +1 doing everything I could think of, so I will break down here what worked for me and what didn't.

I started out going to each of the cities and handing each child one gift. That didn't work. While I was handing out gifts, managed to get all 3 of the trees.

Then, someone told me I needed to go back to my home city (San D'Oria). I went back to Sandy, bought a stack of the expensive gifts and went to check my mog house. Still nothing from my moogle, so I handed out the gifts I had to 3 children (random, doesn't matter which ones). I kept checking back at my mog house and still nothing from my moogle yet. Handed out another EX present and a stack of the 500 gil a piece presents. I checked the Moogle in South San D'Oria to see how much festive fame I had, and his reply was that I had brought caravans loaded with ludicrous amounts of joy to the children. Once I got this message, my festive fame was maxed, so I stopped handing out presents. Went to hunt for a bit and apporximately 2 Vana'diel days later checked back at my mog house and my moogle said he had found a present under the tree. Ta Da! My dream hat +1!

My husband handed out presents in San D'Oria as well until he got the same message about the caravans of joy from the South Sandy Moogle, and he got his hat +1 as well. The thing about him getting it is he only had the tree from San D'Oria and only handed out presents there.

So, basically through trial and error I have discovered the actual way to get the Dream Hat +1 is to hand out gifts to the children in your home city until you get the caravan of joy message from the moogle, and have the tree for your home city in your mog house layout, then wait about one Vana'Diel day at least. Visit your mog house and talk to your moogle and he should say you get the hat. You have to get the message about the caravans of joy though to get the hat +1, I didn't get the hat until I got that message from the moogle, and trust me I tried for 3 days to get it.

Actually, from what I've seen, it doesn't matter which city you give out presents in. The key is to max your Festival Fame. The cheapest (and fastest/easiest imo) way to do that is to just go to the smile bringer every game day and get a free ex present. Those presents give the most Festival Fame and you only need 4-5 before you max fame.

Ok, I have gotten the Dream Hat, Dream Hat +1, and all three Chirstmas Trees.

First, for the Dream Hat you must:

Talk to the event moogle who will tell you that the smile bringer has been handing out gifts. The moogle will then tell you the number of kids and which areas to find them.
Ex: 2 in South San d'Oria, 1 in North San d'Oria, and 0 in Port San d'Oria.

The kids are randomly picked. You will have to talk to all the kids in the areas untill you have gotten 3 letters.


Once you have all three, go to the smile bringer and trade him the letters. He/She will ask you who gave you each letter and will then give you your dream hat.

He/She will then give you an Ex "Present for the Kiddies" You must buy more presents from the smile bringer. The presents each give you a different amount of joy fame based on they're price. (100gil, 550gil, and about 1,300gil)

NOTE: You can get an Ex "Present for the Kiddies" for free each in-game day. These boost your joy fame more than the other gifts, so if you don't feel like spending gil you can do this.

You then trade the presents to the kids in town with your dream hat equiped to build joy fame.

NOTE: At this point you should do the tree quest for your town before you continue with the smile bringer.

The NPC to start the tree quest is in the Port of every town. The locations are as follows:

San d'Oria: Port, infront of boxes up by the airship entrance.

Windurst: Port, on the left wall by the gate leading out to Sarutabaruta West.

Bastok: Port, by the big tree across from the bridge leading to the residential area.

The NPC will tell you that they need supplys from the local market moogle. You must run/flee/warp to the market moogle (which will be just outside the residential area) and talk to him. He will give you a Rare/Ex item to take back to the tree person. Trade the item to the NPC and you get your tree(Trees are Rare and can be put into the AH or in a bazaar). You can now put your tree in your mog house and resume the present giving.

You can give your presents to any kid in town. It does not matter (I gave all my presents to one kid XD ). To get the dream hat +1 you must have max joy fame ("Caravans of Joy" will be the message from the moogle). Once you have max fame just wait one in-game day and enter your mog house. Your moogle will tell you that it found special gift under your tree. Open the present to get your Dream Hat +1.

NOTE: You do not need all three christmas trees to get the Dream Hat +1. You should only get your hometown one and give out the presents to kids in your hometown. Having the moogle teleport you to different towns will lower your joy fame so wait until after you have your +1 hat to get the other trees.

Thank you for taking time to read this post. If my information has helped you please feel free to rate me up ^^

It seems to be random as to which kids you have to talk to to get your hat like someone previously mentioned. I've done this quest twice in Lastok, once with my main character (Wynnia) and a second time with a mule. So far, these are the kids I've found:

Smilebringer - Christina (I-9)

Bastok Mines:
Valeri Right next to the AH (J-8)

Bastok Markets:
Both are at (J-10) near the Music Shop

Bastok Metalworks:
Folzen (F-8)

Port Bastok:
Dehlnet Under the scaffolding at (H-5)

Other possible children are
Gwill (Bastok Markets E-11)
Patricius (Bastok Metalworks H-8)
Remus (Bastok Metalworks G-9)
Rothais (Bastok Markets L-8)
Vaghron (???)

vaughron is in bastok mines, if you stand at the AH and look towards the stable, he is a galka kid standing across the street from the stable in the corner to the right.

RE: children
# Dec 18 2004 at 11:36 PM Rating: Default
The 3 Children are random for each person. Just talk to the kids and see who gives you what letter. Remember who and what letter each person gives you. I hope this helps.

OK, I have gotten one for each of 2 Characters.

Simply put Have one of the trees in your MH. Max Joy is NOT NEEDED!!! On my mule I Got only the Sandy Tree and saved up about 8 EX presents (gotten for free from Smilebringer once per in game Day) I had Traded about 6 of the presents to Random Kids and was passing trough MH to use Exit Upgrade to get to another area and talked to my Moogle. He had found a Special Present Under one of the Trees. I steped out of my MH and used the Special Present and it made like the Sky Rider firework. I checked My inventory and the Dream Hat +1 was there.

Joy was not Maxed as I could still Trade Presents to kids. I logged into my Main that was no longer at Max Joy and Got the Special Present right away ^^

You only need 4-5 EX Presents traded to get Max Fame.
The message you receive when a single child has too
many presents has nothing to do with fame, but keeps people
from attempting to spam as many 100 gil presents
as possible.

You said yourself you traded about 6 EX Presents.
Must be noted that to obtain the Dream Hat +1, you
must wait until AFTER Jp time midnight (around 10AM PST, 11 MST, noon CST, 1pm EST) before the
moogle will give you the message (ie the same time
for which Conquest updates are tallied if it were
a Sunday morning/afternoon).

Max joy IS needed. I didn't get my hat until I got max fame in my home city and got the message from the moogle (see my post).
