Should I Spend Donuts on Little Lady Justice?

Level 33 is here (woohoo!) and with it comes Little Lady Justice, a new premium decoration for your Springfield.  I’m sure you’re asking “Should I Spend Donuts On This?”  Well before you hit that confirm button, lets break down Little Lady Justice and if she’s worth your donuts:
thesimpsonstappedoutlittleladyjustice
Decoration: Little Lady Justice
Donut Price: 75 donuts
Unique?: No, you can have as many as you want
Bonus: 2.75% (bonus cash and XP to all tasks)
Bonus % Per Donut Spent: 0.037%
Conform-o-Meter Points: 10 Obedience 
Where Can I Place It?: Little Lady Justice is one of the few decorations that can be placed on your land, on the beach and even on the Squidport Boardwalk

Final Thought: At 75 Donuts Little Lady Justice is one of the more expensive premium decorations in TSTO.  It’s actually the same cost as the Boardwalk Fountain with the same Bonus percentage awarded, except the Boardwalk Fountain is unique and awards 1000 vanity points.  It’s a fairly decent bonus percentage, but not the greatest return for the amount of donuts spent.
If you think she’s a great fit for your Springfield I say add it, but if you’re more concerned about maximizing your bonus payouts there are plenty of other (less expensive) decorations that award a higher % rate per donut spent.

What do you think?  Will you be paying 75 donuts for Little Lady Justice?

Tapped Out Walkthrough: Level 33 “Here Comes the Sunsphere”

As we’ve all seen by now Level 33 comes with two new buildings for your Springfield, the Springfield Wax Museum and the Sunsphere.  While the Sunsphere  does not generate income for your Springfield, like other buildings do, it does unlock a “mini quest” for Bart, Martin, Nelson & Milhouse.  It also unlocks a permanent 16 hour task for Bart, Nelson, Milhouse and Martin to Celebrate the ‘WOD FIR’.
Keep Nelson free for the completion of the Sunsphere build, he kicks off the quest.
