Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Lions and Tigers and Emus…oh my! The Springfield Zoo (aka Moe’s Ark) event is in full swing in our pocket-sized towns! Of course, by now, we all know that a new event means a new excuse for EA to fill our stores with limited-time premium items to tempt us.
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 Allison Taylor and the Taylor House to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Canon Throwback combo to your town…

-Lisa will have her own permanent task at the Taylor House (4hrs, Sabatoge Allison)
Pick this one up. 150 donuts is the standard rate for combos these days (no matter how much I complain about it) and she’s canon in Springfield. Good pickup.
Unless you’re super short on donuts, pick her up. Good character, and although she’s not voiced, she’s still a good addition to Springfield.
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 be picking her up. One of the few items from this event I’ll be getting. But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now). Also, since this is an item that helps with the event, it’s better to pick this up sooner rather than later if you plan to grab it. This way you maximize the event currency earning throughout the entire event.
Here’s a look at her tasks…
Allison’s Permanent Tasks:
|Play with Diorama||1hr||$105, 26xp*||Outside/Visual|
|Master Playing the Saxophone||4hrs||$260, 70xp*||Outside/Visual|
|Play Brain Teasers||8hrs||$420, 105xp*||Taylor House|
|Go to School||12hrs||$600, 150xp||Springfield Elementary|
|Study After School||24hrs||$1000, 225xp||Springfield Elementary|
*Her 1hr, 4hr, and 8hr tasks will earn event currency for the duration of the event. Once the event is over they’ll revert to cash/XP.
