Pimp my owl
I feel it is a shame that lingots can't be used to buy accessories for your owl. A cool hat for example. Cause I never use them for anything else. And it would be much more fun. Also it should learn skills so players can battle their owls against each other and use their language skills to command it.
We are designing some more items. Share your suggestions if you have them!
I was wondering almost same thing, I love the lingots and the virtual store, but I wish there was more stuff to use them for. I like the idea of accessories for your owl. Maybe you can talk to the duolingo team about it and they can add it!
hats, scarves, bows (for girls), coats, rain boots, raincoats, tuxedos, tutus, suits, overalls, plaid cowboy shirts, dresses, sweaters, vests, outfits (ex. aviator, ballerina, construction worker, etc)
Girl or no, I'd put a bow on my owl! ^_^ I hope we can get stuff like books too. My owl could have a rad bow, a cup of tea, and a nice book with a compass on the front. :D
Psssh, book. My owl will have the entire Library of Congress ;) Or maybe a Barnes and Noble.
@Seth_H, Oh, I see how it is. If you didn't notice the compass on my book, it's directions for how to get to ALL of the other books in the universe that I've stored in my secret stash, which is a whole PLANET!!!* :PPPPPP (and the inside cover has a super thumb drive with digital copies to read on my phone :P!)
PS Check it! 1bimic is on their way there now: https://www.duolingo.com/1bimic
I'd have a B&N plus a million other books. (I'm afraid I'd find some of the Library of Congress books incredibly boring, however.) Mine will have three hundred bookshelves (stuffed with books) plus thousands of books covering the floor. Take that. :PPPPP
@jkwilson31, Ok, you would most certainly win. I only collect (keep) books that I can stand to read five or more times or that I regularly reference. :P So, while you have a gazillion books at your house, you can come over to my planet for tea and a satisfying read ;) hee hee
(The owl should come with an optional tea mug, and a hover option to see all of the books I've read in different languages.)
haha... on my planet I also only have books I've read a few times or I use a lot, and my owl will not be different. He'll just have read all those books several times, because of course he actually has time to kill. :P and I do love tea!
you need to put accessories in the lingot store it would make the game so much more fun
