  1. This needs to be updated, SLH does now have tasks, he earns at the same ‘premium’ rate of 150% as other premium characters do.

  2. He’s free now to celebrate part of the 30th year of the Simpsons for those who don’t have him, just log into your game. 😉

    (Dunno why my browser posted my comment on the Barney page first, I’ll blame the lousy manipulative dog…)

  3. Actually, Santa’s Little Helper has a 2 hr task in the Giant Snow Globe that earns $175 and 40 exp.

  4. Very disappointed that SLH lost his ability to sit up and beg and chase his tail, that should have been left as his 24 hr task ,
    an outside task! That was why I was willing to pay the 150 donuts for him in the first place, now he just walks around, cannot believe they gave all inside tasks and then took away his best animation!!!!!

  5. When did he become a playable character? He’s been walking around my town for years when I got him as a part of a quest… But he never did anything until recently. When did that happen?

    1. They updated him and the Abominable Snowman during the Winter 2015 event. Now both have tasks.

  6. This may need updated now that he is a full character. I only wish one of his tasks was outdoors so I could see him more.

  7. So disappointed in EA
    I mean it’s one thing to overcharge us for other characters
    Fair enough they have to make money
    But SLH I mean it’s harsh you have to have him
    It’s not Springfield without him but to charge that much for him
    Come on he does nothing he’s just a decoration
    He should be a cash purchase
    But if they want him to be premium
    He should be 20-25 doughnuts
    Considering he does nothing

  8. He has a cute wagging tail. I would like to have him, but not at that price! He would make a good yard sale item or friendship prize for EA to offer.

  9. Snowball 2 is now in the game maybe that would be a con for this e.g can get other Simpson pet for free
