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 Yo Yo & the Worm Train to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this bouncing combo to your town…

– Worm train is a decoration, does not move.
Hey look, it’s yet another overpriced one-off character for Springfield. Again, it falls in line with the standard price point. I like that the worm train comes with a bonus % (always prefer that to cash/xp payouts). Like Joan, this is another toss-up. If you like and want, pickup. Otherwise, pass. However, I would say because of the bonus % on the Worm Train I’d be more likely to get this over Joan.
**Patric says- If it weren’t for the bonus, this is a very, very, very silly “pass” for me. I bought it, so I could help out with the SIB. Not a fan.
Freemium players should pass. Save your donuts, Yo Yo is not worth the pickup.
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 likely passing. 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…
