Should I Spend Donuts on Wendell and Zip Zap and ‘Za?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The kids of Springfield are mad as hell and they’re not going to take it anymore!  Time for a Battle Royale of epic proportions…kids vs adults.  The soul of Springfield is on the line!   So grab those sprinkles because the store is stocked with battle inspired items to fill your Springfield with!

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 Wendell and Zip Zap and ‘Za to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this bucket carrying kiddo to your town…

Final Thought
Premium or Freemium:
It’s Wendell.  It doesn’t get much more classic Simpsons than Wendell.  Buy him for the nostaliga alone. The fact that he helps with the event is an added bonus…it’s Wendell.  How can you not have him?

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 picked him up.   But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now).  Also, this is one of those items that will help you earn more currency…so the earlier you pick it up the more beneficial it is to you.  So try to make your final decision before this weekend…so that it’ll help you the most.

Here’s a look at his tasks…

  1. Absolutely no hesitation grabbed it straight away
    It’s Wendell he’s one of my all time fave characters
    Just dissapointed that there’s no task where you make Bart and Wendell sit on ottos school bus slap him on the back so he vomits lol
    A visual version would be even better lol


  2. I cannot find this. Is it in the regular store?


  3. Wendell is a Simpson’s Character most Tappers have requested for years (not a bad Building Combo at 150 Donuts)👍

  5. The Battlescape playship goes really well with Zip Zap and ‘Za…makes a nice addition to the playground area.

    • That looks fantastic. Great use of fences from other events; a valuable reminder to get this stuff while we can because it may come in useful “one day”.


      • Thanks, Charlotte…I plan on getting at least 30 more fence pieces during this event. Have never regretted stockpiling any kind of fencing…I always use it up and wish I had more🤷‍♀️. This batch of fence is kinda like a trellis, I see it in a “botanical park” kind of environment after the event…now if I could just get a few picnic tables and some wooden yard swings…maybe during a summer event?😎

    The fact that is what memorable Wendell was added bonus!
    I like the building he came with too. Could always use another kid friendly eatery.


  9. Wendell was the one character I always wanted over anyone else. I couldn’t be happier. Yay! 🤩

  11. Welcome to my Springfield Wendell. 😃 it’s nice to finally have you in our tapped out game. Luckily there is no transport, so you won’t get bus sick, everyone in Springfield walks everywhere 😃 (but please don’t ride on the monorail, it might make you feel sick) 😛 This was an Instant buy for me. I think ‘face the monkey bars’ will be the kindest task to send him on. YAY Wendell. 😀 🐱🌸🌟 Thank you EA.
