Should I Spend Donuts on the County Fair Returning Items?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s nearly Fall in Springfield and of course, that means it’s time for Fall Harvest!  Nothing says Fall Harvest quite like a good old County Fair! A nice relaxing way to slowing bring Springfield back to normal after the crazy music fest!  But of course a new event, no matter how small, means our stores are now jam-packed with premium items just tempting us to drop our sprinkles on!

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 the Hootennany Barn (and Luke Stetson), Tuxedo Krusty, Brandine, Bare Chested Willie, Old Simpson Farm House, Springfield Farmer’s Market, Sneed’s Feed and Seed or Willie’s Tractor to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your town…


Item: Hootenanny Barn and Luke Stetson
 100 Donuts
Ribbons for the event, BUT will earn cash/XP after the event is over

Should I Buy Luke Stetson
What Does It Do?: 
Luke is a FULL character and the Barn is a building for Springfield…
My Opinion On It Now: 
Buy.  Anytime you can get a character/building combo for 100 donuts or less it’s a must buy.  Buy him.

Item: Tuxedo Krusty
60 Donuts
Previous Post: Should I Buy Tuxedo Krusty
What Does It Do?: 
Premium skin/costume for Krusty
My Opinion On It Now:
 Eh. Take it or leave it.  Krusty has a bunch of costumes now it’s just another one for the collection.  If you’re pressed for donuts I’d pass.

Item: Brandine
100 Donuts
Previous Post: Should I Buy Brandine
What Does It Do?: 
Premium character for Springfield.  She will help with Monorail. 
My Opinion On It Now:
 Pricey, but she’s always a highly requested character.  She’s been back in the game a few times now, but people still ask for her. So if you want her, now’s your change to grab her.

Item: Bare Chested Willie
60 Donuts
Previous Post: Should I Buy Bare Chested Willie
What Does It Do?: 
Premium costume/skin for Willie
My Opinion On It Now:
 Like Tuxedo Krusty, it’s a take it or leave it.  Premium costume for Willie but pricey.  If you’re pressed for donuts, pass.

Item: Old Simpson Farm 
40 Donuts
$800, 90xp/48hrs
Previous Post: Simpson Farm
What Does It Do?: 
Building for Springfield
My Opinion On It Now:
 Toss up.  Not a must have, so if you’re pressed for donuts pass.

Item: Springfield Farmers Market
70 Donuts
What Does It Do?: Just a stand for Springfield, earns cash and XP nothing else
My Opinion On It Now:
 Pass. 70 donuts is too pricey for this one.

Item: Sneed’s Feed and Seed
90 Donuts
$135, 15xp/4hrs
Previous Post: Should I Buy Sneed’s Feed & Seed
What Does It Do?: Building for Springfield, Cletus does have a task there
My Opinion On It Now:
 Pass. 90 donuts is a crazy price for this building.

Item: Willie’s Tractor
35 Donuts
.75% Bonus on all cash and XP
Previous Post: Should I Buy Willie’s Tractor
What Does It Do?: Decoration for Springfield, animated when tapped
My Opinion On It Now:
 Meh.  Bonus % isn’t great for donuts spent & it really doesn’t do much.  So unless you really want it, pass.

  1. I picked up the Hootenanny barn & like their placement arrangements in both my towns @100 donuts for a building/ full character combo that’s a bargain.

    I’ve too may skins for other returning characters that came free with events to ever buy more! I’d just pass on such items if you are Freemium or want to save donuts. (I wasn’t offered them, as I already have them & am majorly miffed Tuxedo Crusty has lost his longer tasks – Why is that?) When he’s not doing monorail tasks I usually have him in that skin – Strut around town.

    Brandine; However; Is a must buy! I have had her for ages in both my towns & she is helpful with metal / garbage collection on the monorail tasks; whilst also being able to give birth to 3 x Spruckler kids (NPC’s that earn cash every 4hrs) I liked the County Fair event. Not too stressful & some nice looking buildings for my 2 Springfields)


  2. Personally, I think the old Simpson farm house is great as a Halloween building. Like an abandoned house. I currently have bramble hedges and a spooky shed with mine and it works fairly well. It’s been over a year since I’ve played or even visited addicts and I just got back into the game and I’m so glad that the site is still going. You guys are the best.


  3. Hootenanny Barn and Luke Stetson is a true bargain 👍

    The rest ? It’s a shame EA wants sprinkles for former Freemiums (shrugs)


  4. What about the rebate deal for the sleep eazy motel and Miss Springfield? I’m considering it but always love to see what you guys think too…


  5. NOOOOOOOO! Tuxedo Krusty’s 12 & 24hour tasks are GONE!!! This is NOT cool!

  6. So, I finally got Amber. Now farming for Halloween 🙂 If possible I’ll get the paralyzer, too, read its a lot of fun…

    Did anyone notice that UFOs* are no longer tappable? (Norbert’s biplane, L.T.Smash’s drone) Thanks, EA!

    *) Unpleasant flying objects


  7. Anyone know why Tuxedo Krusty’s 12 and 24-hour tasks have gone missing? And if they’ll come back?


  8. This bothered me but I didn’t have time to ask during the event
    If Maggie and Rockstar Maggie from the future are both performing on my pop stage at in the same jam session……..

    Isn’t this a time paradox?

    If only there was someone here who knew about time travelling



    • My future self said he’d kill me if I told you…but then that’d “kill” him. And my past self is past self is watching BTTF and Quantum Leap confusing himself (sorry, have my own paradoxical problems right now). 😦
