There are quite a few threads about the silly placement limitation on pumpkin soup. Several of the other items also can't be put away (the harvest fruit hat seems to only live in the dock or on the head).
My suggestion is to elminate placement restrictions. I don't understand this penchant Ganz has for enforcing their take on 'normal'. This is a place where imagination should rule! Why do they care if I want to put clothes on the floor, a fir tree in my bedroom, or a fence through the middle of my yard? What's wrong with storing a bag of peanuts, a Humvee, and 38 Bounce-and Burst trophies in a trunk?
Even worse, why can't you put "food" on a "table", or a "potted fall festival tree" in an "outdoor yard"? What's wrong with a "tree-stump end table" outside? "Books" on a "desk"? Shockingly novel concept. Why do they care if I'd like to plant "tomatoes" under a "spotlight" on a "coffee table" in my "solarium"? Quoted items are not constrained by reality......they're just <insert conceptual make-believe facilitative objects here>.
For things like garden beds that have a functional component, I guess I could understand, but this is just software! Who cares "where" it is? The whole concept of "where" doesn't have any meaning.
Many of these arbitrary placement limitations appear to be default assumptions based on inappropriate, narrow-minded convention. A few may be legitimately difficult to achieve. But please take off the blinders Ganz, and let your users' imaginations take them wherever they dream.
(trust me, they are weird and wonderful places to play)
