This morning, I had gathered sufficient red butterflies to get the Rover hood. I had also caught some yellow butterflies and had enough to get the rustic essences, so when I was finished cathing, Rover gave me both presents. He must have lost count, because he gave me two of his hoods (and the essences)!
Has anyone else had this happen? It might be worth trying to earn two presents simultaneously and see whether he's mathematically challenged again.
it's not like they'd have any way to tell if you did it on purpose or not, so I doubt any punishments will happen. it's easy enough to complete two tasks at once just by happenstance that a lot of people are going to get this glitch by accident. plus they give away so much free stuff as prizes in this game, I doubt they're going to care if people get duplicates during an event that only lasts 10 days. if this was a glitch with regular villager interactions, I could see them potentially patching it out, but this issue won't be around very long.

But I used to work for Neopets. We would ban people regardless if their intention was accidental or purposeful once the 'word' of the glitch hit chat rooms. Yes, that's ridiculous and petty; but it has scarred me for life. Especially when I am playing 'kid friendly' games.
