TSTO Early Christmas Returning Items

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well Thanksgiving is over (although the event still has another day) and you know what that means?  Time to start planning for Christmas!

This year Christmas has come early in Springfield!  Looks like EA’s decided to re-release a bunch of the Christmas/Holiday inspired items in TSTO to get us all in the holiday spirit!

So what’s made a return?  What should you buy? What should you pass up?  Well let’s take a comprehensive look at what’s made it’s return, the quick details and my current opinion on these items now….


Because you know I love a good selfie….hahahaha

Initially you’ll get a free Elf on the Shelf Gnome in Your Home Box, which at the moment does nothing.


Here’s a look at what’s back in our stores….

Info for all of the Festive Buildings….

What Does It Do?: Christmas Decoration Facade for these buildings.  You don’t actually get the building if you don’t already own it, it’s just an option to have the building look festive and Christmassy.
My Opinion On Them Now?: You’re asking the wrong person.  I love Christmas…so the more lights in Springfield the better in my mind.  So despite adding no value for donuts spent to Springfield I’d buy each and every one of these (provided I had the buildings to go with it…).  They make me smile.

Festive PlungerFestive Light Plunger– 30 Donuts

What Does It Do?: Turns on and off every single Christmas facade in your Springfield.  Basically it makes all of the Christmas lights go up around town, and then when Chrismtas is over you can take them all down with a tap of the Plunger.
My Opinion On It Now?: If you don’t already have the plunger, it’s a great item!  One of my favorite prizes from a previous Christmas Event.  It can get very tiresome tapping on every single Brown, Orange, Purple, Blue, Pink and White house in Springfield to swtich the facades to show Christmas Lights.

And there you have it my friends!  The quick details on the returning Christmas items..

What are your thoughts on these items?  Will you be picking any of them up?  Do you own a bunch already? Thoughts on the Christmas lights?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. is it snowing in anyone elses?!??!? I want snow 🙁

  2. (Shrugs) nothing new for this long time tapper
    save my bonuts for whenever …
    We need Xmas in Krustyland / Springfield Heights
    (Just saying) 😉

  3. Bought the festive light plunger for 30 donuts but all it does is turn the Simpson house to “tacky festive”. I was able to do that before I bought the plunger. It has made no difference on all my other houses. Any one else have this problem?

    • It should turn ALL of your decorated houses on and off…

      • Only changing Homer’s house, Flanders house and Cletus’ farm. Nothing happens on any of my other houses. I know it’s supposed to, but nada yet!

    • It turns on and off your houses’ lights/decorations, but only if you already have those lights/decorations. If this is your first TSTO Christmas, then you probably don’t have them yet (except for any you may just have bought in the new sale), but it sounds like they give you the Simpson’s house decorations for free.

  4. By the way, it has not escaped my notice that about a dozen of my friend-neighbours already have lights up on their brown, blue, pink, etc houses.

  5. I would not assume that returning Christmas items in the store now will be around later in the event. I have not forgotten or forgiven EA for Halloween 2015 when they offered the Cauldron, which I had no apparent need for at the time, but then pulled it out of the store when they offered Marge The Witch, who uses it.

  6. We need a Halloween plunger for those gun facades!
