Should I Spend Donuts on Señor Ding Dong’s Doorbell Fiesta & Señor Ding Dong?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Look up in the sky!  It’s a bird!  It’s a plane! No, it’s Fallout Boy back in Springfield to save it’s residents from hard to open ice cream containers! Ah yes, Superheroes are temporarily back in Springfield, in another attempt to fend off evil!  Naturally our stores are packed full of premium items just tempting us with those sprinkles!

Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to grab everything in sight 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 Señor Ding Dong’s Doorbell Fiesta & Señor Ding Dong to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this doorbell whipping vigilante to your town…

Character: Señor Ding Dong
Building/Decoration: Señor Ding Dong’s Doorbell Fiesta
Donut Cost: 140 Donuts
Earns: $200, 20xp/12hrs AND 4% bonus on cash and XP
Consumerism +20
Other Info:
Can be placed on the grass|pavement|boardwalk|pier|dirt|beach

Leaves stores July 30th

-Señor Ding Dong will use Doorbell Fiesta building, and it is animated when in use (Bell at the top of the building “rings”)
-Earns income AND a bonus %, and at 4% that’s a recent bonus.

-Animated tasks aren’t that great.

Final Thought
Premium or Freemium:
I like this combo.  It may seem a little pricey at 140 donuts, considering I usually say that..but with the bonus % added to the building it’s not terrible.  That 4% bonus helps make that cost not feel so high (usually you pay around 80 donuts for a 4% bonus). And it’s awesome that he’s voiced, really makes this a fun character.  The only thing lacking, in my opinion, is his animated tasks.  They’re not that great, and I feel like I’ve seen both before.  Otherwise this combo gets my stamp of approval.

Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and as I premium player I can tell you I’ll be picking him up.   But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before he leaves our games for good (or for now).

Here’s a look at his tasks…

  1. Señor Ding Dong’s Doorbell Fiesta & Señor Ding Dong …

    140 Donuts isn’t bad (it’s also a Voiced Character with an Animated Building – yay EA did something right!) 😊


  2. DVR alert! The Simpsons episode Maximum Homerdrive featuring Señor Ding Dong from the current Superheroes Return mini-event airs this Thursday, July 27, at 9:30pm on FXX.

    I ended up grabbing it even though I was kind of meh on it. The logic is this: Alissa always points out how good a deal a character/building combo for 100 donuts or less is. She also pointed out in this post that a 4% bonus typically runs 80 donuts. By my math that means we’re coming out ahead by 40 donuts at least.

    My conformity bonus is still relatively low, now 169.90%, but it all adds up eventually, right?

  4. Picked him up as soon as I scraped up the sprinklies. I remember being disappointed when he was voted out of the bracket last year.


  5. Too many upcoming events for me to pick this up. Plus, I spent most of my donuts on the Pride event.


  6. I bought it. My bonus didn’t increase, though. (I still like it.)


  7. I got it because it’s looks like Taco Bell like someone else wrote and it has a good ,recent bonus. TBH the character is kinda creepy to me. He reminds me of John Waters but not in a good way.
