My Singing Monsters

Each island except Gold, Wublin, Composer, and Tribal Island have obstacles which can be removed for space and for XP. You'll probably need to clear away some of the obstacles to make room for monsters, decorations, and structures.  There is also a Game Center award for clearing an island of obstacles.  Clearing obstacles can be sped up at the cost of 1 Diamond25px for each hour or part thereof remaining (i.e. cost is rounded up).

Market-obstacles

Remember how we said that trees and rocks that are removed from our islands will find new homes elsewhere? Good news – these are somebody else's trees and rocks and your islands are their new homes! Recycling is awesome.

After an obstacle is removed, it can't be restored. Since the original trees and rocks are decorated for the islands' Special Occasions, you may wish to keep at least a few of them around.  Other trees you purchase as decorations for monster likes (e.g. the Piney Tree) don't change for the special occasions.

Beginning with Version 1.3.2, it's possible to buy new obstacles from the Market (under "Decorations") by spending diamonds.  Trees and rocks you buy in this manner can be resized like other decorations, and can be resold immediately — you do not need to wait for them to be cleared.

Beginning on Version 2.2.3 (or at least discovered at that time, since 2017 didn't feature this new feature), on October 2018, all all-year-round purchasable Obstacle decorations are not affected by any events such as Spooktacle. Instead, themed Obstacle decorations are purchasable during the period they are available, but their themed decorative features will last indefinitely.

Clearing Obstacles

There are initially 12 Small Trees, 7 Medium Trees, 4 Big Trees, 18 Small Rocks, 12 Medium Rocks and 5 Big Rocks on each Island.

Quotes

Normal Obstacles

It's a [Small/Medium/Big] Rock. Removed rocks will be taken far away to wonderful new homes.
removable Rock
It's a [Small/Medium/Big] Tree. Don't worry; removed trees will be taken far away and gently replanted.
removable Tree
Remember how we said that trees and rocks that are removed from your islands will find new homes elsewhere? Good news - these are somebody else's trees and rocks and your islands are their new homes! Recycling is awesome.
purchased Rock or Tree

Spooktacle Obstacles

Someone has strewn toilet paper all over the trees to celebrate the spooky season... we'd bet our bottom Diamond it was the Oaktopus.
Spooktacle Tree


Rocks aren't the most talented at dress-up - the most they've managed is to become a little darker. However, the local arachnids have offered a hand (they have many of them) to add some cobwebs to complete the look.
Spooktacle Rock


Festival of Yay Obstacles

Deck the trees of Cold Island with tinsel and ornaments to make the joyous spirit of the holidays last.
Yay Tree


There's this popular opinion going around that rocks make undesirable presents... this rock is here to prove otherwise. Look at that lovely bow, who could possibly refuse?
Yay Rock


Season of Love Obstacles

Every year around this time, Air Island's Yucka Tree thistles take on the rosy hue of love and whisper romantic poetry to each other by rustling their branches.
Love Tree


Even the rocks are trying to break in to the love scene... I'm told no pebble can resist a good 'boulder smoulder.
Love Rock


Eggs-Travaganza Obstacles

Looks like the Blabbit's handiwork. I wonder if the Monsters that will one day hatch from these eggs will be colorful as well?
Eggy Tree


Many theories exist to explain the origin of these strange statues. Some suggest that they were deposited by some ancient race of Monsters. Others contend that they depict the famous Shellbeat musician Gene Krabba. I guess we'll never know for sure.
Moai Rock


SummerSong Obstacles

The normally bent and burnt Torchle Trees of Earth Island have been festooned with summery attire. They really put the hot in 'hot fun in the summetime.
Summer Tree


Not to be left out, the rocks of Earth Island got all summered up as well. Now they look absolutely delectable! Be warned, though, it's only skin deep - they still taste like rocks.
Summer Rock

Feast-Ember Obstacles

The rustic charm of these Feast-Ember Trees brings to mind a freshly-baked Pie on a cool afternoon. Sure, Fire Haven never get cool, but a Monster can dream!
Feast-Ember Tree


You may be tempted to jump in these crunchy leaf piles, but you better think twice. They're still Rocks, after all!
Feast-Ember Rock
