Hey Howdy Hey My Elfish Tappers!
Well….unless you’ve been partying a little too hard you know that Elves have taken over Springfield! Elves work hard and party even harder…so much so that even Santa bailed on Springfield! It’s your job to contain the Elves and send them back to the North Pole. In doing so you’ll earn Elf Bells..which will give you some awesome prizes!
With this event EA is repeating a similar prize structure to what they did for Halloween, only more prizes, and releasing the event (and prizes) in stages. For the second phase, which lasts until the event ends (Jan 13th), you can win 8 prizes by collecting Elf Bells. The Sixth prize awarded at 13,800 Bells is the Little Helper Ralph.
Let’s take a closer look at Santa’s newest special helper and just what happens when you win it him your Springfield…
WARNING Mild Dialogue Spoilers Ahead
Once you’ve collected 13,800 Elf Bells Little Helper Ralph will automatically be awarded to you and you’ll see this popup:
Much like Friendship Prizes, if you’re visiting a neighbor when you hit the 13,800 Bell mark this message will still popup and your newest Elf will be waiting for you in your inventory once you get back to your Springfield.
Little Helper Ralph will automatically be placed in your inventory, so you’ll have to go into your inventory to retrieve it. Just tap the “use” icon to place it in your Springfield.
Note: You MUST pull him from you inventory in order to see him in your Springfield. He will not automatically be applied to Ralph. He’ll only enter your Springfield once you click use from inventory & see this popup:
Seeing this popup in your game is a confirmation that he’s in your Springfield.
After you’ve “placed” him in your Springfield his questline will popup. For those that don’t like spoilers you’ll only need Ralph and Dr. Hibbert for quests and Ralph (and possibly Wiggum..see below) are need for questline triggers. Now here’s the Turbo Tappin’ version of Ralph’s short questline:
Special Helper Pt. 1
Make Little Helper Ralph Eat Yellow Snow- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
Special Helper Pt. 2
Place the North Pole
Make Little Helper Ralph Lick the North Pole- 1hr, Earns $70, 17xp

Special Helper Pt. 4

Sorry guys my game glitched and I didn’t see who triggered this one. I know it wasn’t Ralph (as he was on a task) so I’m assuming it’s Wiggum (if you know please correct me)
Make Dr. Hibbert Practice Medicine-12hrs, Earns $420, 100xp
Make Little Helper Ralph Get an MRI- 12hrs, Earns $420, 100xp
