Should I Spend Donuts On the Easter 2017 Redux Items?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Looks like Easter has hit Springfield after all!  Yesterday, Easter Sunday, EA dropped several Easter themed items in our towns.  Most were returning, but there was one new item for those long time players to debate over.

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 Returning Easter items to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these Easter throwbacks to your Springfield…

Quick breakdown of each returning item, with a link to previous post, plus my current opinion on it now…


Character: Shary Bobbins
Donut Cost: 125 Donuts, Rebate 15 Donuts, NET 110 Donuts
Previous Posts: Shary Bobbins; SIB
My Opinion On Her Now: She’s come back a couple of times, this is the first time I recall her at a discount though.  Was originally free, but A LOT of players missed out because of the “Easter 2014 Mystery Box drama”…so now is your chance to get her for a whopping 110 donuts.  Great character, iconic episode, and I adore Mary Poppins…BUT in reality she is over priced for a stand alone. So if you have your sights set on her, grab her.  Otherwise pass…because she is over priced.

Character: Hugs Bunny
Donut Cost: 100 Donuts, Rebate 30 Donuts, NET 70 Donuts
Previous Posts: Hugs Bunny; SIB
My Opinion On Him Now: Good price for a stand alone, 60-70 is typical.  Hilarious character with a seriously amusing task with Homer.  BUT his best task is a joint task that requires..Homer.  But with the rebate, I’d say he’s not a bad pickup.  Again, he was originally free and has come back a time or two…so now’s your chance to pick him up at a discounted price if you missed out before.

Character: Egg Council Guy
Donut Cost: 40 Donuts
Previous Posts: Egg Council Guy
My Opinion On Him Now: This is an NPC.  Tap him you’ll see an egg roll….if you like NPCs he’s a decent price.  But if you’re not keen on NPCs, pass.  Save your donuts for something better.


Building: Blocko Store
Donut Cost: 30 Donuts
Earns: $200, 20xp/12hrs
Task: Chalmers has a 2hr task there
Previous Post: Blocko Store
My Opinion On It Now: Good price for a fun building. Task for Chalmers is an added bonus.  If you have the donuts and don’t already own this one I’d pick it up.


Decoration: Easter Island God
Donut Cost: 100 Donuts, 40 Back, NET 60 Donuts
Earns: 3% bonus on all cash and XP
Previous Post: Easter Island God
My Opinion On It Now: 60 donuts for a 3% bonus is a good rate for donuts spent. (40 donuts should get you 2%) Originally, at 100 donuts this was a pass.  But with the rebate offer now this is a decent pickup.  So if you’re looking to increase your bonus % pick this one up.

Decoration: Faberge Egg
Donut Cost: 100 Donuts, 70 Back, NET 30 Donuts
Earns: 3% bonus on all cash and XP
Previous Post: Faberge Egg
My Opinion On It Now: GREAT price for bonus %.  Best buy of the Easter offerings! Buy it.

Decoration: Easter Flag
Donut Cost: 10 Donuts
Earns: .25% bonus on all cash and XP
My Opinion On It Now: If you like it get it, otherwise pass.  Bonus % isn’t that great for donuts spent, but it’s a decoration.  So if you like it and have a need grab it.

And that my friends completes the quick Should I Buy for the returning Easter 2017 items!

  1. It’s a noobs choice, because this long-time Tapper has everything else already (I guess EA doesn’t care to offer free Donuts like last Easter) 👎



  2. Pyanfar the Hani

    I am gritting my teeth as I consider buying Shary Bobbins. As one of those people who played the H-E-double-toothpicks out of the event when she was free and never won her, I’m still annoyed. That she’s still expensive with a minor rebate for no building, no voice adds to the irk factor. So I’m not sure if I’ll buy her. *muttering*


  3. Finally having Father Sean and Shary Bobbins after all this time is so nice!


  4. I got the Blocko store as I keep missing out and I think 30 donuts is a really good deal for a fun looking building. I always tap on it when I visit other Springfields so I am happy to finally have it.


  5. The Faberge Egg is one of my favorite items ever b/c I did win it back during the event that shall not be named. Glad to get Shary Bobbins. Already had Blocko and fits in nicely in my Springfield Mall area.
