Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Grab your Santa hats and break out the tinsel because it’s Christmas time in Springfield! Yes the annual TSTO Christmas event has arrived in our pocket-sized towns, covering our usual perfect weather towns with a fresh blanket of bright, white, snow! 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 the Yarn Barn and Kathy from personnel to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this knitting duo to your town…
Building/Decoration: Yarn Barn
Character: Kathy from Personnel
Donut Cost: 175 Donuts
Earns: $135, 15xp,4hrs
Conform-O-Meter: Consumerism +20
Can Be Placed:grass|pavement|boardwalk|pier|dirt
Leaves stores December 12th
-Helps with the event, earns a premium rate
-Animated when in use, yarn balls roll out the door
-Has a 24hr visual task
-Pricey for a character/building combo…even by today’s standards (although i can tell you this seems to be a “new norm” with this event. Based on what’s still incoming)
A minor character from a fairly classic Simpsons Christmas episode (Tis the Fifteenth Season), who is just hilarious. She’ll help with the event (but only Act 1 from what I can see) and it’s another character/building combo. Not a bad pickup if you have the donuts.
I’d pass on Kathy and save your donuts for some more classic characters coming down the line. They’ll be better donut investments in the coming weeks for sure.
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 already picked it 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 her tasks…
