So you’re new to TSTO and you’re finally getting the hang out how things work. Now that you’re in full swing of the game you’ve been spending more time exploring other Springfields. Then you see it…right there is your Neighorino’s town is a Jebediah Springfield Statue, and you want it. You start frantically searching the available decorations only to come up empty! And you start to wonder ‘How the heck did they get that statue if it’s not for sale, using cash or donuts?!’ Maybe you think you missed out on a limited-time event and think you’re out of luck. Well have no fear you haven’t missed out on anything, you too can own the coveted Jebediah Springfield Statue, and surprisingly it’s really easy to get!
You need to make sure good ole’ Homer J Simpson is available for this:
1) Start Homer on an easy outdoor task, playing with his My Pad is usually best for this.
2) While Homer is busy tapping away on his My Pad, you need to get your tapping finger busy and tap Homer 10 times, quickly.
Homer should laugh (a lot) and tell you to stop, but don’t listen to him! If his task screen comes up- ignore it and keep tapping.
3) Tap until you see the Jebediah Statue icon pop up:
As an added bonus you’ll also get 10 FREE donuts! A nice little hidden bonus from the master minds at EA!
PS Once you’ve tapped OK on the Statue box you can find Jeb in your inventory.
This now kicks off the premium Jessica Lovejoy questions, you need good ol’ Jeb to begin part1. Thank the giant finger in the sky for TSTOAddicts.com, I tried everything I could think of but couldn’t figure out exactly what EA meant by ‘tap Homer 10 times’ ! A few minutes search brought me to this post and as soon as Homer’s free again I’ll be tappin’ my way to a Jebidiah statue 😂
Many thanks to the original poster and all the commenters for helping my tapped out brain.
I got the statue but no donuts when I placed it. Is the 10 donut promotion over?
Hi, I tapped on homer 10 times, while playing with his mypad, I actually tapped homer about 20 times, and still can’t get the jebediah statue.
Did you open the box to see the timer counting down and then tap him 10 times in a row? Or did you close the box each time?
Tap him and instead of closing the commands just tap him 10 more times
I can’t believe that I’m level 59 and just figuring this out now. Thanks for the Post, it just so happens that my Homer is in his king size Homer skin and he’s letting it all hang out at the beach. I feel a little bit uneasy about tapping on him in that condition and hearing him giggle so much.
Heard that. same situation here, and i’ve been an addict since about a week after i started playing.
Dude, I’m at 106 and just found out.😠
I have been frantically search for how to do this for years and never once thought to send him on a job and then tap him. If I would of never found this website I would never have won my statue. It will go great next to my wacking day one
WOOHOO!!! Glad you got it… AND some free sprinklies. 😉
Is there another Jebediah Springfield statue you can win? I got the one in which he is stepping onto the head of a bear, but when I visited one of my neighbour’s town, he/she had one of Jebediah slaying a snake with a lance. I tried winning it the same way I won the first one but it didn’t work, do you guys know anything about this?
That one is from Whacking Day 2013..it’s no longer available.
WOW was whacking day really 2013….still one of my favourite events 6 years on 🙂
Was able to get Jebediah statue on one game but have not had any luck on other games. Anything changed or still tap 10 times? Very frustrating.
Haven’t heard of folks not being able to do this. I got it to work having Homer Play with his MyPad and then while he did it, tapping him 10 times on another game just today. If it really won’t work though, contact EA
Best trick ever!!!!
Thanks for this post! Gottem~ 😀
It doesnt seem to work for me :/
It worked on one account but my new one it isnt working?
Hmmmmmm…. my kid had issues with this too but eventually succeeded. It worked the third time for her. Set Homer on myPad task and then tapped 10 times over like 30 seconds. Good luck!
Only on game A, game B still awol 🙁
It worked, it worked…yippee! 🙂
I ran in to the same problem with mine (I have an android phone). As soon as I tapped on Homer, the pop up window with his jobs/tasks came on the screen and I would try to close it between trying to tap him 10 times. The only way it really worked for me was I selected Homer’s task for playing with his MyPad (this is ONLY one that worked for me on several devices). The task is a short and quick one. As soon as he pulls out his MyPad, tap on him. The job/task screen will open back up showing how much time he has left to play with his MyPad. Just ignore it. Keep tapping and tapping and tapping and tapping on Homer as fast as you can, as many times as you can (don’t worry about counting to 10). Once you have tapped him enough, the screen telling you that you have unlocked the super secret bonus will pop up.
I don’t know if this applies for everyone as well, you may want to make sure you are logged into an Origin account and playing the game under your name and log in. I have seen others run into problems if they are just playing a random game and never created an account. I hope this helps out. 🙂
I have never been able to make this work 🙁
