Should I Spend Donuts On the Returning Valentine’s Day Buildings and Characters?

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 Buildings and/or Characters 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…

Previous Post: Should I Buy
What Does It Do: Praiseland amusement park area and full character
My Opinion On It
 Now: I passed on her originally, however now that Krustyland is in Springfield I may pull the trigger to add to my amusement area on this one.  At best she’s a toss-up.

  1. Already had a few of them. Purchased the Vegas wives. Because they’re Vegas wives! Happy with the purchase.
    Was going to pick up Praiseland but decided against it. Went hard on the Valentimes mystery box instead and emptied all the characters out of that. The decision to start KEM farming back at Xmas is paying off!

  2. These are not bad “returning” to the Game App if you missed them last time (but I have to say the Vault is hot hot hot right now)😉👍

  3. Jesse Grass is a big help with rails because he can make any of the three materials, just like the Hippie can. I don’t even know what his other tasks are because he’s always doing rails! Totally worth that hundred sprinkles 🙂
