Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
It’s update time in Springfield! And after 8 years of TSTO, we’re finally tackling Black History Month! No time like the present for EA, huh? What’s in store for us this time? Well, we’re tasked with finding out the history of Dr. Hibbert, Carl, Lou, and the Simpson Family! Of course, an all-new event means all-new 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 Mabel Simpson and the Canadian Border to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Simpson Family History throwback to your town…

Donut Cost: 150 Donuts
Earns: $200, 22xp/8hrs
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +400

-Helps with the event, earns a special premium rate (will earn it for the entire event)
-Comes with a questline
-Completes the Black History Character Collection
-Completes the Simpson Family
-Will use the Canadian Border for tasks
-Virgil has a task at the Canadian Border
Pro or Con (Depending on how you play):–
-Has a joint task with Virgil
-Looks just like Marge
So guys this is EASILY the best premium item of this entire event. She’s priced at the standard price point, voiced, will use the building she comes with for tasks, AND the “building” she comes with actually makes sense to be associated with her. Hands down the best premium buy of this event…
Of course, in the end, it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and I got her almost immediately. Best premium buy of this event. 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 the tasks…
