  • Swiper is on his good side without any swiping now because he decided to return any item he swiped to the Fairytale Land.
  • Even though Swiper swipes some of the bricks from the The Three Little Pigs' brick house, it would still be impossible for the Big Bad Wolf to blow it down but they're still worried about it anyway because even though a brick house would be missing some bricks, it would still be tough to blow down anyway.
