Should I Spend Donuts On the Carnival Float and Xoxchitla?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Pack your bags and prepare for an invasive screening at the airport because it’s travel time in Springfield! And while our towns are embracing their ever expanding airports, our donut bank is shrinking because there are LOADS of worldly items in our stores just tempting us with those sprinkles!

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 add the Carnival Float and Xoxchitla?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Brazilian Boobie dancer to your Springfield…

Character: Xoxchitla
Decoration: Carnival Float
Donut Price: 120 Donuts
Earns: 3.5% bonus on all cash and XP
Size:
6×5
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +200

Leaves Stores March 7th

Pros
-Full character for Springfield
-Comes with a questline
-A couple of funny outdoor tasks

Cons
-No benefit for this event
-Not voiced

Final Thought
Premium:
This is a fun character.  She’s reasonably priced, and offers some fun outdoor tasks.  If you’re looking to expand your premium character arsenal this is a good character to do it with.  Decent pickup.

Freemium:
Freemium players, as I’ve said before, I still think Kumiko is the better deal (if you don’t have Kumiko).  But this is still a decent price for a premium character/decoration (with a bonus %) offering.  If you have the donuts, and you’re looking to pick up a premium character this may be the one to grab.  Reasonably priced, funny tasks and bonus % for your Springfield.  It’s not a freemium must have, but it’s a nice to have for sure.

Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do.  And I can tell you as a premium player, I’ll likely pick her up.  Just remember this is limited time, and will be leaving our stores soon.  Whatever you decide, So be sure to make your final decision before it’s gone from our games for good. (or for now..)

Here’s a look at his tasks..

  1. It’s hilarious. I was a teenager in the 80s when Xuxa was a big hit and her childrens show was kind of…distracting.

    The questline is very funny so far

  3. I got her, but I think there is a glitch. Only her 1 hour job is outdoor. And there is no 8 hour job. Anyone facing the same problem?

  4. Character sounds great
    Float seems to be as stationary as Devil Ned Flanders
    (A shame EA doesn’t make a Character / Building like this for Krustyland)

    I agree that Costumed Kumiko w/Americatown is the best deal 👍

    I like her, but the float is very plain 😕 I’m still happy with purchase, but will likely “hide” the float unless I see something creative in a neighboreeno’s SF 😊

  7. I got her, I have no idea what to do with the float though.

  8. Got her as soon as she offered and happy I did, but EA really dropped the ball with not having her use the float. I really expected to see the float animated.

  9. I’m left wondering where the hell they got that name. It’s certainly not Brazilian.

  10. I have no idea where I could put that float without it looking ridiculous. Kinda wish she was just a standalone character for like 90 donuts, would probably buy her in that case,

  11. I feel like an outcast:
    “Our donut bank is shrinking because there are LOADS of worldly items in our stores just tempting us with those sprinkles!”
    I seem to be the only one who has seen nothing tempting to get, premium-wise, in this event. Like, nothing.
    Was curious about Mr Sparkle, because that’s one thing i was all about… until i saw him in a neighbor’s town. The scale was crazy weird – he’s bigger than the cars, so he’s, like, half a house.
    Please, tappers, am i all alone? Am i just old and cynical? Will i hit 500 donuts for the first time ever in years of playing?
    Actually that would be kind of cool.

    • I’ve gotten a couple things, but nothing I couldn’t live without. My biggest problem with much of the stuff is, as usual for me, the scale of everything. But, I won’t even get started on that here…

      Why did they make her float look like 3 year old made it? It’s even worse than the other floats & that’s saying something. I doubt I could store the float & not the character. I guess I’ll have to resort to my usual ‘hide it’ strategy. You wouldn’t believe how much stuff I have hidden behind other stuff in my town ’cause I absolutely hate to look at it. 🙄( Now if I could figure out a way to hide that awful pink casino I might buy that too so I could get the character) RachelS

        I have to agree on the float. I guess it was actually designed by the animators of the episode from which she comes. It would have been more interesting if the little blocks turned or popped open when the float was animated.

        • Thanks! It makes more sense knowing she’s based on a kids show host. Kudos to jrose & MaryT – thanks! And I SO agree about the dumb floats, of course. I think mine are in storage tho, as I didn’t remember them having any bonus % attached. I usually only have buildings that pay out & stuff that has a bonus in my town. There’s a few things I just like, I’m sure, but the majority is the stuff that pays. I didn’t do that the first couple years, but now there’s just so much stuff! RachelS

        I have a kind of “garbage town” set aside as a railroad/recycling yard. It’s where I drop all of my oddball items that I’m not using for decoration. It’s a good place to store junk I don’t want to put away but can’t find a use for; things like the Halloween couch that turns into into a monster when you tap it and the burning man sculpture. The cluttered look makes it look like an active junk yard. Just a suggestion– 🙂

    • I was tempted to buy one, but I didn’t. Now I regret it. I would have gotten 1000 donuts, because it spun to 3 little axes 😭😭😭

    • Worse case is that you get the same number of donuts/dollar as the store. If you buy donuts anyway, you have a fun way to maybe win a few extra. It’s kind of a mystery box for donuts…you can’t really lose, but you might just break even. I tried it, and only got 115 donuts(the lowest prize), but that’s the same as they would have cost me in the store…so, no loss.
