Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Out with the old and in with the new! Itchy and Scratchy Land exited stage left and the Poochie mini-event arrived stage right! Because 6 weeks of Itchy and Scratchy wasn’t enough. Of course, an all-new mini-event means a new opportunity for EA to add new premium items to our stores!
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 Roy and the Reality Channel Van to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Reality duo to your town…
Building/Decoration: Reality Channel Van
Donut Cost: 150 Donuts
Earns: Van earns a 4% bonus on cash and XP
Conform-O-Meter: Consumerism +10
Other Info: Can be placed on the grass|pavement|boardwalk|pier|dirt
Leaves stores July 25th
-Will help earn event currency for the Poochie Mini Event (premium rate)
-Comes with his own questline
-Van is animated when tapped
-Van earns a good bonus %
-Outside/visual tasks are kinda meh
-Pricey for who he is/what he does
This is your fairly typical premium character/decoration combo. Priced in line with some of the others (although I feel he’s overpriced), van earns a decent bonus % and he’s voiced. So if you like him and want him, go for it.
Meh, I’d pass. I’d save your donuts for something else he’s a hit lackluster.
Of course, in the end, it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and as a premium player, I’ll likely pick him 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 their tasks…

|Do Finger Guns||1hr||$105, 26xp||Moe’s|
