How do I level up my Knuffel?
Every Knuffel has experience, shown as X/Y. Once the Knuffels experience (X) reaches Y, it will level up. Experience is gained by feeding, playing and digging, or by putting them in daycare. When a Knuffel levels, you should choose an element to increase the digging chance in one of the elements. This chance determines how often you find something in the area of that element. Note that it is possible to increase this number above 100%, which then does not affect the probability of finding material, but increases the rate at which rarer materials are found.
How long do I have to wait between each feed/play?
You have to wait 20 seconds.
The bars are full, can I feed my Knuffels more?
No, you cannot. You need to wait until they deplete again before feeding and playing with your Knuffel again. However you can still put your Knuffel into daycare.

How do I dig with my Knuffel?
By digging on Candy Island, your Knuffel can find quest material, food or avatar items for you. What material or items your Knuffel finds depends on the element of the location you let your Knuffel dig, and the avatar items that can be found change every year.
Can I see who interacted with my Knuffel?

Then you have to go to the digging area, which you can find in the quest interface. Choose your Knuffel's name in the dropdown menu and click the area you want to dig in. How often you can dig with your Knuffel depends on how many digs it has per day. The number of digs raise the higher your Knuffel's level is. Once you have used up all digs you have to wait for the next day (server time) in order to dig again.
