Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Gil’s back in Springfield! This time he’s peddling premium items with a rebate. Some old and some are new, but all are offered at a discount! So bust open those piggy banks because Gil’s tempting us all with this deal.
Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything because it’ll be gone soon. But don’t sweat it! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.
Wondering if you should add the Nature Bundle to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding things tree-hugging bundle to your town.

-A really good value for what you get.
-Comes with a quest line
-Greenhouse is a unique looking building in Springfield, goes well with a lot of designs
-At the conclusion of the questline you’ll earn a free SLH Topiary
-Animated when in use.
-Willie has a 6hr task here to Work with Fierce Diligence (earns $350, 90xp)
-After the questline no characters interact with the Greenhouse Thanks to Torin8337 for correcting me on this!
-Beyond the Greenhouse a lot of items you may already have. Really who needs that many Kodos and Kang Topiaries?
Buy it. It’s probably the best return for bonus % and income you’ll get for 100 donuts. It doesn’t come with a character, but it’s still a great value.
In my opinion, I know it doesn’t come with a value, but this is a great buy for freemium players. It’ll help you boost your conform-o-meter bonus %. It comes with a lot of great decorations for Springfield, that you most likely don’t have because they’re premium. And the greenhouse looks really, really cool. So for me, this is a freemium buy.
Of course I will caution you…don’t burn all of your donuts on this. EA has been known to do these sales right before an event hits. So spend wisely…
Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would/wouldn’t do. And I can tell you I grabbed this one. Whatever you decide just make sure you do it before the house leaves our games on April 19th…or you might miss out on this one.
Here a look at the initial dialogue that pops up when you buy the bundle, as well as the Turbo Tappin’ version of the walkthrough…
Lisa: Wow, a greenhouse! Finally after three years of non-stop urban sprawl, someone has come to their senses.
Blue Haired Lawyer: Indeed, Electronic Arts HAS come to their senses and finally taken advantage of the tax write-off for “green-friendly” games.
Homer: Ewwwww! What the heck? This donut tastes like crap!
BHL: Also the frosting on all Tapped Out donuts will now be made from ethanol.
