Valentine’s Day has arrived in Springfield! But, with all of the new Valentine’s premium items that are limited-time it may be overwhelming trying to decide which items to buy and what to pass on. With that limited-time label on items I know it can be tempting to just buy everything you can. But, have no fear! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth your donuts & what you might want to hold off on.
Wondering if you should add Brandine to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the Pros and Cons of adding this Spuckler to your Springfield.
Character: Brandine Spuckler (and Birthday, Dubya & Whitney Spuckler)
Donut Price: 100 donuts
-Premium Character Earns 50% cash and XP on all jobs
-Another Female Character for Springfield (Finally!)
-After you’ve completed the main quest she unlocks a special task that births 3 Spuckler kids.
-Birthing Spuckler kids task earns a lot of cash and xp.
-Spuckler kids will earn you additional money
-Humorous outdoor tasks
-Expensive. At 100 donuts she’s one of the most expensive premium characters in the game, with out a building.
-It takes 90 days to birth a Spuckler, or 30 donuts to speed up.
-Spuckler kids do not have any tasks, but they do earn income (similar to Krustyland).
-After the initial quest-line she no longer has interaction with any characters in the game.
Personally this one is a toss-up in my opinion, but I do intend to purchase her in my town. I LOVE the fact that EA finally introduced another Housewife to Springfield (are they reading our Sunday posts?!) but at 100 donuts she is a bit pricey. Although she does come with the ability to add 3 new characters to your game, but it takes 90 days for each one (9 months for all 3) AND they don’t come with their own set of tasks (although they will earn you additional income via pick-pocketing). So I think this one comes down to how bad you want Brandine & what your donut budget is.
Just remember whatever you decide this is a LIMITED-TIME character and once it’s gone, it’s gone…so be sure to get it before the event is over if you’re thinking about it.

How the Spuckler Kids Earn Money:
Whitney, Dubya & Birthday Spuckler all generate additional income in your town (they have a knock of nicking). They generate income throughout the day and the longer you let them earn the more they’ll earn (like tickets from visitors in Krustyland). Here’s the payout:
At 4hrs: They’ll Earn $100
At 8hrs: They’ll Earn $200
At 12hrs: They’ll Earn $300
At 16hrs: They’ll Earn $400
At 20hrs: They’ll Earn $500
So as you can see the longer you let them go, the more they’ll earn!
