Should I Spend Donuts On Ms. Claws?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s time for hiss-mas!  Yes, the one holiday a year where you either get catnip or your face clawed at…how exciting! This little holiday teaser arrived yesterday, something to get us thinking about the Christmas event…and of course, EA never misses an opportunity to add a premium item to our games!

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 Ms. Claws to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this catnip giving festive CCL to your town…

Costume: Ms. Claws (Costume for Crazy Cat Lady)
Donut Cost: 100 Donuts if you have CCL, 180 if you don’t (comes with CCL at the 180 price)

Leaves stores December 5th

For the original SIB on Crazy Cat Lady check out this post.  Post below is based on JUST the costume.  180 donuts for both is a fair price.

-Festive costume for the holidays
-Has a fun interactive task with the Cat Sleigh
-12hr visual task

-Way overpriced for just the costume

Pro or Con, Depending on Your View:
-12hr task is to fly the sleigh, which literally flies across your screen (like Arnie Pye etc)

Final Thought
Premium or Freemium:
As a stand-alone costume for CCL it’s hard to justify that 100 donuts is a good buy in this case.  Based on the info alone this should be a hard pass (for just the costume), no matter your player status.
However, it’s festive for Christmas…and you guys know how I feel about Christmas.  So despite the ridiculous price tag…I bought her.

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 got her.  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 her tasks…

Ms. Claws’ Permanent Tasks:

Task Length Earns Location
Give Out Catnip 1hr $105, 26xp Springfield Elementary
Give Out Cat Scratches 4hrs $260, 70xp Springfield Downs
Make Cats Festive 8hrs $840, 210xp Outside/Visual
Drive the Cat Sleigh 12hrs $600, 150xp Outside/Visual (flying task)
Hiss at Merrymakers 24hrs $1000, 225xp Brown House

  1. I just couldn’t do it. As Alissa said, it was a hard pass. If it was 50 – 60 donuts, it would have been a no brainer. Somehow I feel that the new prices are due to KEM farming. I don’t want to KEM farm, but I am starting to feel pressured into thinking about it because of the prices I’ve seen lately.

    Hello everyone

    Ive been playing Tapped out for many years.
    How do I become a CCL? What is it?
    I see many ppl tgat have tons of donuts. Do u guys buy them or is tbere a way to get them easily besides the ones we already know from the game itself.
    Thanks a lot

  3. I spent 180. Received CCL, house. However, they still want 100 for Ms. Claws.

  4. I bought it, thinking it would be a full character. But, it wasn’t that much to get up to 1000 donuts (I am farming them as well) and it seemed kind of silly to have the sleigh without her. A fun item.

  5. I bought this as I buy everything else they offer. Being max lvl player the donut price is irrelevant because I just donut farm constantly, so it’s all basically free to me 🙂

  6. Too much for me. Call me Scrooge but I’ll wait till the price comes down.

  7. I so hate flying animations. Oh well

  8. I gave in …. but I join everyone who feels that EA is kinda becoming a TinyCo 😬 …. except I have to say at least EA doesn’t skimp on the updates and now we know why Kem Farming is essential / keeping your Town’s Bonus % very high! 😀👍

    Thanks for posting Alissa 😸

  9. I got CCL with the Iguana Lady costume when it was offered some time ago.. now I have the 100 donut Xmas costume offer. I’m torn.. BUT I still have my bundle of donuts (2000+) from that donut deal some time ago.. so I’m on the fence. I only spent less than 200 donuts on Black Friday Mystery boxes, so still plenty of donuts for Xmas.. Oh what to do??
