Should I Spend Donuts On: Freedom the Falcon

We have a new episode tie in!  But, with the new premium item that is limited-time it may be overwhelming trying to decide whether to buy it or 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 FREEDOM the Falcon to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the Pros and Cons of adding this bird to your Springfield.


Animal: Freedom the Falcon
Donut Price: 40 donuts
Limited Time: Yes
Comes With Tasks: No
Bonus: None

-Another animal to add into your collection and it’s a FALCON!!
-Makes screeching and chirping noises when tapped.
-Circles around and flies after tapped.

-Limited Time.
-No Bonus on a Premium Item

Final Thought:
I do like the thought of this amazing looking bird in my town. Just because I live in an area surround by hawks, eagles, and falcons. So they fascinate me. The issue I really have is for 40 donuts, you can buy several other items and at least get SOME kind of a bonus multiplier with it. This has none at all. So disappointed in that regard. For me, I would say hold off to decide. If you are an elitist and MUST have everything, go for it. Otherwise,  hang on to those precious pink sparkly sweets for another item to come along that benefits you and your game more. 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.

  1. Wondering if anyone has any advice on where to find Freedom the Falcon I bought? He isn’t in my inventory, I don’t see him anywhere in my town but he does show up in my character list. I am so frustrated! Where does he usually hang out when not in the box of inventory? Thanks for your time.

    • It’s really tiny. Hard to find just like Snowball II. Go to your build menu, hide buildings and decorations and you’ll find her. I just did this the other day and made her fly for a couple minutes as punishment for being so sneaky and unfalconlike.

  2. I’ve got 300 donuts. I’m max level and don’t know what the best buy would be. Any thoughts? What about the whale? Thanks:) oh and add me up! I could always use more friends. Leaannstrain I’m level 38, 4 stars, daily player.

  3. I bought the Falcon and love the animation it is realistic and graceful. But not good value, no return but I’m lucky enough to be so far into the game this is no longer an issue.

    In my beta town I buying a police car or burns limo much better value.

    • Really was hoping for a bonus on it. I love Falcons, but only got it in my B game. Won’t waste the donuts in my A game.

      • 40 doughnuts is too much to pay for a decoration…..but it is a falcon and it flies……..

  4. Thanks for your help. I did find the falcon walking down the street, not up in the trees!

  5. PS, if you’re one of my neighboreeno’s, please don’t leave me. I’m pulling an all nighter to get back on the line w/ apple & iTunes to somehow save my town! TY!

  6. Ugh. Has anyone else ever been hacked? After 3 days of dealing w/ iTunes & Apple & my bank card, I’m now still unable to get back into my Springfield. I want to die. So this is the point where EA says to make a whole new account. If anyone’s been through this, PLEASE tell me what happens when you e made the new account then contacted EA, did they put your old Springfield under your new account??? Or did you lose everything you ever did including your donuts????!!!!

    • Whoa…hacked??! Sounds like it was more than just a simple “couldn’t log in” issue as you first thought.

      I’m so sorry this happened to you. 🙁

      If EA is there to help, see what happens. They have been really good to a lot of our readers. Fuzzball included. They’ve been able to restore many things for players including missing items and donuts. Just keep in constant touch with them. Let us know what happens.

      • Guess I’m not the first, but iTunes & apple caught it really fast. Still I want my Springfield back! *crying* I wish they’d just let me back in? I don’t want this new account to be my Springfield. I almost had my FP kitty cat! : (

        • Well I’m glad iTunes caught it. Just let EA know as they’re reestablishing your account, let them know all you missed. All you had. They most likely are asking you to build a new one if the other already has been destroyed beyond repair and they’re looking out for your safety. Be patient with them. They will take just a lil bit to help get you back in order, but they’ll do all they can to set you back as close to what you had before.

  7. I bought it and can’t find it! Don’t know what to do now!

    • It’s REALLY lil. Try using your “move” feature and hide your buildings to see if you can find it. 😉

    • Check your inventory and click use.

      • It is VERY VERY tiny. Hard to see at times, so if you have a lot of buildings and roads, it will disappear quite easily behind them.

        I found to locate a missing character, go into your “movement” screen and “hide” all the buildings and decorations in your town. Then take a look around and see if you can locate Freedom. Again, a very tiny bird. About half the size of Snowball II

      • Found him! Thanks for your help!

  8. Has anyone else noticed that Stampy is in the “More Animals” Character Collection? It’s Snowball II, Stampy and Freedom the Falcon. When do we get Stampy?!?!? I NEED STAMPY!!!!

  9. Wait… did you say SHE?

  10. Maybe there is something wrong with me but I just had to have her! I do also have the Funzos but I would choose Freedom over them. The pet shop is a better buy but it is not limited.

    I say treat yourself 1 time $100, 2,400 donuts ($0.04 per donut). They will buy a lot and then you can keep a nice donut balance for when something like freedom comes along.

    p.s. I do not work for EA 😉

  11. Too late. I bot the bird before I got your message. But I love birds so okay. And BTW: “My diaper is full now”? Well, GAG! If that kid is old enough to speak he should have learned to use the BR long ago. But I love: “Gimme a bottle of bourbon. I just got a new liver and need to break it in”. (or he said something like that.)

  12. sending one now Nikki 🙂

  13. I’m so torn! I don’t purchase donuts aside from one golden scratcher. I’ve managed to skrimp up to 65. I was saving for the pet store! I have 5 stars, plenty of money. I’m just not sure something this cool will come along. Waiting for Xp to gain donuts its painful, are there premium items that really make it worth wild. I was hoping you’d say they falcon was sooooo awesome I had to get it! Lol now I’m unsure!

    • lol. Save your donuts….
      Pet Store at least will generate income and good ole Jub will also earn you $$ with his 1 task 🙂

  14. That Falcon is in the same class as the funzos… Not for me. Way too small, and it’s flies for 3 seconds… I counted. EA you can do better.

  15. I got the her even though I now only have 14 donuts left. Purely because she’s an animal and I love animals. One of my two blogs here on wordpress is all about animals, so I just had to.
    I can imagine a lot of people would regret purchasing, but I don’t regret it at all. The more animals in my Springfield the better 🙂

  16. Thanks Bunny! I had just posted my curiousity on it just before seeing this! LOL Reading minds today? 😉
