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 the Picnic Spot and Mrs. Scratchy to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Scratchtastic Combo to your town…

-Will help earn event currency for the Poochie Mini Event (premium rate)
-Comes with her own questline
-Picnic Spot Earns good bonus %
-Amusing visual tasks
-Really pricey for who she is/what she does
Another fairly typical premium character/decoration combo. I’m a little disappointed at her price, even if Scratchy was 300 Donuts this seems high for his wife. Otherwise it’s a standard pickup, if you like it grab it…otherwise pass.
Meh, I’d pass. Especially if you didn’t buy Scratchy
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’m still on the fence with this one. But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now).
