Should I Spend Donuts On the Fever Bundle, Blocko Store, Ski Lift (& Stupid Sexy Flanders) or the Ski Chalet?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s snowing in our pocket-size Springfields!  Yes that magical time of the year when our towns are blanketed with snow and there are LOADS of items from Winters past to spend those sprinkles on!

Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything that looks awesome 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 Fever Bundle, Blocko Store, Ski Lift (& Stupid Sexy Flanders) or the Ski Chalet to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your Springfield…

Leaves December 15th…

Bundle/Items: Fever Cabin, Fever Snowman Burns, Fever Snowman Homer
Cost: 25 donuts
Previous Post: Fever Bundle
My Opinion On It Now: Cheapest price it has been for those three items (except when they were initially released, and they were free), but in the end they’re just decorations.  No cash/xp or bonus % earned with any of the items.  So it’s one of those, if you like them and think they’d fit nicely in your Springfield grab them.  Otherwise..pass.  Overall rating…Meh.

Leaves Stores December 16th…

Building: Blocko Store
Donut Cost: 30 Donuts.
Should I Buy Posts: Blocko Store
My Opinion On them Now:  Inexpensive price for a highly sought building.  While it’s made a comeback a few times as premium, this is one of the cheapest donut prices I’ve seen for it.  The Blocko Store was originally part of the East 2014 Event and was a very hard to win prize in one of the Egg Boxes. It does earn income and has a nice design, so if you’re in the market for a fun building pick this one up.  It’s a reasonable price and there’s a task there for Chalmers (2hr permanent task).  Overall rating…Good Buy

Character/Decoration Combo: Stupid Sexy Flanders (Skin) and the Ski Lift
Donut Cost: 150 Donuts, with a 40 Donut Rebate.  So net 110 Donuts
Should I Buy Posts: Ski Lift
Bonus %: Earns a 4% bonus on all cash and XP (Ski Lift)
My Opinion On them Now:  I liked it then and I like it now.  Fun combo, especially this time of the year.  Flanders has some funny tasks and the lift looks nice in Springfield.  In the summer the snow melts on the lift and it becomes a green hill.  If you have the donuts and you’ve been looking for a premium skin for Flanders grab this combo.  Otherwise pass.  Overall rating…Ok.

Leaves Stores December 16th

Building: Ski Chalet
Donut Cost: 80 Donuts
Previous Posts: Ski Chalet (Craftable 2015)
My Opinion On them Now:  I wasn’t a huge fan when it was free, although I do have one in my Springfield and I certainly think 80 donuts is WAY overpriced for a building.  Sure it looks nice as part of a ski resort area..but 80 donuts?! In my mind this one is a pass.  Overall rating…Pass.

And there you have it my friends, the breakdown on the returning premium items to hit our stores.What are your thoughts on the Fever Bundle, ski items and the Blocko Store?  Do you own any of them already?  Will you be purchasing them this year?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. The only thing I don’t have is the ski lift, and I’m still rather torn on whether I should buy it. I have skins that pay premium for Flanders, so that’s not really a selling point. I won’t have anywhere to put it until they release what might be the last strip of land to the north, and then I could put it perpendicular to those mountains and maybe try to do a whole range of mountains with other expensive items. But who knows when that land will be unlocked. I dunno. Wish I had all month to buy other stuff and then decide 😝

  2. Hi guys, I need some help please! I still need a premium skin for Flanders so I’m quite tempted to buy either the Santa bundle or the ski lift bundle. Just wondered which you thought might be better? Santa is an incredible deal (I don’t have Santa Homer either, though I do have his premium fat homer skin) but then the ski lift is an interesting addition and I could use the skin year round. Thoughts?!

    • I guess it depends on how much you think you’ll want to use a Santa skin year round. (Also, in case you care, Homer’s Santa skin didn’t pay premium, but I know it’s Ned’s that you were more interested in anyway…)

    • I’m personally not a huge fan of the Stupid Sexy Flanders skin, not because it’s not a great character skin or questline (it is), but because it both the 4 hour and 12 hour tasks require Homer, and I like all my characters and skins to have the basic 1, 4, 8, 12 and 24 hour individual tasks. Personally, I would go for Santa Flanders, who has some nice outdoor animations, but it’s really up to you.

      • I wish I had known that before I purchased it…I might have passed on it. But the ski lift its kind of a nice deco, and it gave me a chance to pull a couple of my chalets out of storage, at least.

  3. Does anyone still have the offer for the Festive Burns Mansion, Compound, Sanjay’s House, etc? I thought this one was sticking around until the 21st, but it has disappeared from the store. I really wanted to pick these up…

  4. Yep, you’ve convinced me on the ski lift. I was probably going to buy it anyway to partially alleviate my devastation at missing Springfield Gorge, but this was swayed me.

  5. I’m super bummed I can’t get a second ski lift. I would have never even known if it weren’t for this post.

  6. I eagerly await your SIB on the Gil deal. 170 donuts is a LOT but I kind of want to get it anyway just because this event is causing sooooo much controversy and maybe the items special to this event will never, ever come back

    • Good point! Also, those of us who enjoy this sort of thing should support it with our wallets.
      Hmmmm, I may have just talked myself into it. I was debating because I can’t find a single image of Ba’al that looks like their weird sphinx thing, and I have no idea where I should put it in my increasingly full town, but now I think I have to go buy it…

  7. I never liked the ski chalet either so what I did was put it next to the pancake restaurant which looks similar and it looks like a double building now.
