Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
There’s nothing quite as beautiful as Springfield in the snow, is there? Yes, there’s no denying that it’s officially Winter in our pocket-sized towns as the 2017 Holiday Event blew into our towns with a major cold front! Of course, while the town is frosty cold the store is hot, hot, hot…and loaded with new premium items just tempting us to spend our sprinkles!
As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us 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 Santa’s Plane Sled to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this war throwback to your town…
Full Disclosure: You guys know how much I love this time of the year & this event is loaded with really good content, I do intend to purchase every single NEW premium item available. So I’ll do my best to provide an impartial view…but odds are it’ll be a little biased because I think the content for this event is phenomenal.
Building/Decoration: Santa’s Plane Sled
Donut Cost: 40 Donuts

Premium or Freemium:
This one doesn’t do much and if it were anything else I’d tell you to pass completely. However, this completes the Islands we got a few years ago & I really like this story from the show. So (of course) I picked it up. If you have fond memories of this episode & have been hoping to complete the island story grab it….otherwise pass.
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 already told you, I picked it up. But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now).
Here’s a look at the dialogue it comes with…
The War on Christmas
Auto starts when placed
Santa: Ah, this old sleigh. Takes me back to 1942, when Abe Simpson shot me down over the Pacific.
Grampa: We had to cobble this thing together so you could finish Christmas.
Santa: Abe, how about joining me for a class of eggnog for old times sake?
Grampa: No way. Last time I went drinking with you, I woke up naked and on my forehead someone had written “I lick elf bells”.
Tap Santa’s Plane Sled
What are your thoughts on Santa’s Plane Sled? Will you be spending the donuts to bring it to your Springfield? Did you already? Why or why not? Where have you placed it in your town? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
Got this and Eski-Moe’s during the weekend; now there is only the Rudolph-shaped snake left, but that seems just to weird.
I don’t even see it. Is this item in the store?
Never mind. I already have it. From another time, I guess.
This truly DOES complete our ” crashed Santa sled parts with gifts splattered everywhere ” Group of Islands …. a bummer EA didn’t bother to add Bonus % (interactive isn’t enough), so add me to the nope list 🤔
So glad I waited for a sib on this before pulling the trigger.
Definite no buy
Wow I want all of this stuff, but so far only have gotten the Rigellian North Pole. I started farming again so will see what I can do. I might have to leave this one out.
Now on the beach in SH next to the crashed sleigh and the small island…perfect place for it 😁🏝.
I’m tempted. This would look at home in my airport, next to The Little Black Box.
I originally thought I’d put it parked at the Egg Nog Bar…but now it’s at the beach.
So it’s going to be one new item in store for each day? Hope something cool comes along!
Dang writers. Mr. BURNS shot him down…
I do like the episode and wanted to buy it when it hit the store… But it doesn’t have any benefit and I don’t know where I’d put it. Gonna pass.
REALLY don’t like this trend. Does the Rudolph Snake have no percentage either, cause it has a similar description right now? 40 donuts with no bonus is not right.
What episode/islands are related to this?
I bought it as well as the village , the manger, elf skins for Bart and Lisa, and the queens holiday skin. Already got most everything from last year.
I put it next to my Christmas crash island in the sea…. 🖒
No bonus. No go for the hunters 😎
You were able to put it in the water? Or do you mean on the beach near where you put your island? If I could put it in the water near the islands, I might actually get it…otherwise, it’s a definite pass for me.
No I had to place it on squid port tiles nearby.
If it had bonus %, I would pick it up, but at that price I am going to pass
