It takes about 7-14 days to get a guy up to one heart. If you want to get someone up really fast I suggest Toby. He loves fish and those are easy to get. Also he's really sweet. I just love him
But if you are a Chase lover then you could give him clams, oysters and I think seas urchins.
Never tried that trick with the other wii remote but if it works please tell me. ^^
