Should I Spend Donuts on Christmas Tree Ralph?

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 Christmas Tree Ralph to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this tannenbaum Ralphie 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. 

This is a character that says will earn Event Currency…stay tuned to Act 2 to find out how.  However, he makes me laugh so much I wanted to do his SIB post now because I think you should get him based on the character alone….who doesn’t love little Ralphie?

Costume: Christmas Tree Ralphie
Donut Cost: 40 Donuts

Leaves stores January 2nd, 2018

-Reasonably priced for a costume
-Will turn Ralphie (freemium character) into a premium character
-Comes with a questline

-Just a skin, not a new character
-Only 1 visual task
-All other tasks take place at Wiggum House

Final Thought
Premium or Freemium:
I’m going to be completely biased here and tell you all to get him.  He’s reasonbly priced & really adorable.  There’s something about the innocence of Ralphie that you can’t help but smile about.  Pick him up.

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).

  1. Been in contact with EA regarding Christmas tree Ralph not earning event currency I’ve received conformation that it’s a bug and shouldn’t have stated that they are returning me 20 donuts if youve brought him thinking he’d help like me then contact EA help ☺


  2. Now that Act 2 is here does anyone know how Christmas Tree Ralphie will earn event currency?


  3. I love Ralphie, this was a no brainer – even before the SIB. 🙂


  4. I bought him, and I’m a freemium/hybrid player. I didn’t know he had a previous Christmas themed skin, I don’t know how I missed that! The only skin I had for him was the ballet costume. I love how cute he is in his Christmas tree get up! If I had the opportunity to get his elf skin, I would, as it sounds like the visual tasks for that are great as well. Are the character pop ups in this quest line a hint of things to come? I hope so!


  5. Considering that Ralphie is an arsonist, giving him this costume was probably the only way his parents dared have a Christmas tree.


  6. “My imaginary friend thinks you’re stupid” …. if you don’t buy Ralphie. “Come on American pick a winner, he is a good boy”.


  7. I already have two premium skins for Ralph (and he spends most daytimes eating his sandwich onstage), but I bought this immediately! I love his dialog and this just seemed kinda….classic?
