Some areas will be locked until you complete a puzzle or find a specific inventory item.
Hidden Object Scenes:
Many items change when you start a new game. Find the items listed and pick up extra items for your inventory or hints points.

Pick up inventory items along the way to solve the puzzles.  I will let you know with color codes ie: (green), (blue) 

Mirror in the upper right corner:
The game starts you off with 10 free hints. To gain more hints you must find the two mirrors in each Hidden Object Scene.
Each mirror adds 1 extra point to your game.

You have an inventory tray at the top of the screen where items you find are kept for future uses. Drag inventory items to an area you wish to use it and click it into place.  When you see sparkles this usually indicates and item to be picked up or and area that needs the use of an inventory item.  If you play in advance mode you will not see the sparkles.
