Should I Spend Donuts on Princess Kashmir & Florence of Arabia?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Halloween has disappeared from our games and Level 47 has arrived in Springfield!  And with it yet another “Princess” arrives…..Princess Kashmir!     Now I know you may be trying to decide if this dancing girl is worth YOUR donuts, but don’t sweat it!  We’re here to tell you what’s worth the donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add Princess Kashmir to YOUR Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this adult entertainer to YOUR Springfield!

                      Princess Kashmir Dance Florence of Arabia                   

Building/Decoration: Florence of Arabia
Character: Princess Kashmir
Donut Price: 175 donuts
Dimensions: 6×10
Earns: 
$135, 15xp/4hrs.
Conform-O-Meter: Consumerism +10

Pros:
-Comes with a quest line
-Premium character earns 50% more on all cash and xp than a freemium character
-Pretty decent payout on the building, great way to generate some extra cash in your town.
-Princess Kashmir has a questline with the Freddy Quimby update (Level 47), so if you purchase her you’ll get more details on what happened “that night”.
-A couple of fun outdoor tasks.

Cons:
-No Character Interaction after questline. (Until you reach Level 47, then she has a short questline)
-Not voiced.
-Several of her tasks are indoors
-Extremely expensive for a character/building combo.

Final Thought:
Personally, this one is a toss up for me.  She is quite expensive, and serves no real purpose outside of her questline (and some dialogue with Level 47).  She’s also not a major character in the show, like Luann or Manjula.  However, she’s still a fun character and has some fun dialogue.  My best advice on this one is to wait.  Princess Kashmir isn’t going anywhere…but Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner.  You never know what might drop into Springfield with those events (or if Gil will show up during the holidays).  So, personally, if you’re low on donuts I’d wait until after the New Year to pick her up.

Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would/wouldn’t do…and I can tell I do plan on purchasing Princess Kashmir at some point.   However, this is NOT a Limited-Time Item so take your time with your thought process.  Princess Kashmir will still be there in a few weeks.  So if you’re on the fence or worried about saving up your donuts relax..there’s no rush to get her

  1. I got her out of the treasure with 45d discount.
    Great offer. I think 130 is a good price. Thank you for breakdown.

  2. I’m level 48, and still don’t see Florence of Arabia, Princess Kashmir or the French Waiter in my character or buildings list. I do see Freddy Quimby. I was wondering if there was a quest line I have to complete first or something that needs to be built before they are unlocked. Many thanks

  3. I am now level 48. And still don’t have the option to purchase the Florence of Arabia, Princess Kashmir or the French waiter, but do have the option to build the Quimby mansion. I was wondering if I was missing something or have to complete a certain quest line to unlock these characters? Many thanks

  4. This just appeared in my vault with a 45 donut rebate, meaning a net of 130 donuts. At the 175 donut cost, you rated this as a toss up. Would your assessment change at 130 donuts? Thanks!

    Mr. Teeny has a 12hrs premium task at Florence of Arabia Building. This is good because he dosen’t have any other 12hrs solo task.

    (just bought this combo from the vault for 175-45 = 130 donuts)

  6. A bit of advice – if you don’t have the Adult Education Annex built, you might want to hold off on buying Princess Kashmir until it’s done.

    I just bought her and don’t have the Annex built yet (it’s currently in the process of building) and all of her jobs expect the 4 hour job are locked because going to the Annex is her first task. The other jobs don’t unlock until after completing each task before it.

    Kind of a bummer, I have to wait a day and half for the Annex to finish building before she can do anything other than a 4 hour job.

  8. I wanted her to have a task in her own building so it would light up. I placed it next to Nelson’s moms strip joint. I can’t believe she doesn’t light up her own building. Bummer.

  9. I had to get her, she is from one of the first episodes i remember watching from childhood. I think she and her building are a pretty nice addition to my town. And ive been hoarding my doughnuts waiting for something good to buy.

  10. I bought her and it felt like one of the shortest quest lines ever for a premium character. And she doesn’t talk. And I don’t remember her from the show. Buyer’s remorse!

  11. It was a no-brainer for me. Takes me back to when I was a kid watching the Simpsons and loved the episode she was in. My big disappointment though…how does she not have a task at her own building?!

  12. You can’t really say the game is kid friendly all the time anyway, just tap police officer Lou a few time for proof !
    Though to be fair kids in UK see far worse on tv , it’s always funny seeing the reaction US celebs give on our chat shows when they realise just how relaxed the censors are.

  13. Thanks for the info on the princess. I’m going to wait it after the holidays or…. Are they planning a special on donuts anytime soon? I’m running real low and allow myself $20 a month and haven’t gotten any in a few.

  14. Does the building animate/light up like the other strip club or other buildings?

    • Honestly Princess Kashmir doesn’t use it..so as far as I know, no there’s no animation. (Since there’s nothing to animate it)

      • What a shame. With Classy Ladies and the Sleep Easy, I could have started my own “Little Vegas” with all the lights and neon. LOL

        Still, I went ahead and purchased the PK/FoA combo.

  15. I bought her because of the red hair. I don’t know her character from the show. Last time I went on a buying spree there was a Gil deal shortly so everyone else should wait a few days 😉

    • The strip clubs and Nelson’s mom’s storylines if you had Dr. Nick and Otto (recreational drug use) seemed out of place in regards to the usually kid friendly storylines the game. Haven’t finished Kashmir’s storyline, but it seems rather tame for the most part so far.
