Should I Spend Donuts On the Returning Valentine’s Day Decorations?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Love is in the air friends!  Yes, Valentine’s Day is back in our pocket-sized towns!  And this time around things are going to be done, Springfieldian Style!  Of course, an all-new event gives EA an excuse to stock our stores with returning premium content in our stores, just tempting us to drop those pink sprinkles!

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 returning Valentine’s Day Decorations to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your town…

  2. I think all the stuff with no % should’ve been available with igc….glad to know about the bundle. Wasn’t sure if anything in there had a bonus %. I couldn’t really see what all was included. I did get the cozy hammock & put it next to Snugglers Cove.

  3. I wish they brought back the balloons for cash instead of donuts, or I would have picked up a bunch.

  9. I so should have waited for this. I was surprised when I got the bundle of love and my bonus didn’t increase at all. It’s okay, though. I’ve been in a pink mood ever since I got the donut factory.
