Should I Buy the Stonecutter Daycare, Fences, and Tube Slide?

The Stonecutters Event has arrived. With all of the new Stonecutter Items that are Limited Time, it may be overwhelming trying to decide which items to buy and what to pass on. With that Limited Time label on items I know it can be tempting to just buy everything you can. But, have no fear! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth your donuts in game cash & what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should spend your hard earned in game cash on the Limited time Stonecutter items for your Springfield?  Well  let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these items.

Stonecutter Daycare Center

Building: Stonecutter Daycare
In Game Cash Price: $250,000
Dimensions: 8×10
Payout: 
$200, 20xp Every 12hrs
Conform-O-Meter: Obedience +10

Pros:
-Average Price for a new building.
-Nice fit with the rest of the Stonecutter Items.
-Animation. Shadows of kids running around and chasing a ball.
-Sound Effects. Sounds of children laughing and playing when tapped.
-Has $$$ & XP earning tasks associated with it.

Premium Stonecutter Run the Stonecutter Daycare 2hrs $190, 40XP
Regular Stonecutter Run the Stonecutter Daycare 2hrs $125, 27XP

Cons:
-Tasks are limited to just Stonecutters.

Final Thought:
Personally, I bought this right away. I love the look of the Daycare and all the play are items outside. It makes it really easy to decorate with. I also like that this is a Special Event item that will continue to get used AFTER the Stonecutter Event is over. The tasks are only 2hrs, so a great time to put a lot of characters on to earn $$ and XP in a short amount of time.  (Those Easter Pastel fences look great around it.)

 

Tube Slide

Decoration: Tube Slide
In Game Cash Price: $2,500
Dimensions: 3×2
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +100
Unique: 
No. Buy as many as you want.

Pros:
-Reasonably priced for a nice colored cool decoration.
-Nice fit with the rest of the Stonecutter Items.
-Many possibilities of locations to place it in your Springfield.

Cons:
-No characters have tasks with the decoration (would be cool to see a kid sliding down it).
-No questline associated with it.
-No animation associated with it.

Final Thought:
Personally, I bought several of these. They look great next to the Daycare, in a park setting, at the school, and in the backyards of the neighborhood. Definitely a different and unique looking item. Great color. Overall just a really cool item to decorate your Springfield with and full of possibilities.

 

Hieroglyph Wall 3

 

Building: Hieroglyph Wall
In Game Cash Price: $500
Dimensions: 1×2
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +05
Unique:
No. Buy as many as you want.

Pros:
-Reasonably priced for a cool looking wall.
-Nice fit with the rest of the Stonecutter Items.
-360 turn that allows 4 different looks.

Cons:
-No animation associated with it.

Final Thought:
Personally, I loaded up on these. (Let’s just say about 1000.) I placed several in my town then moved them to my storage. They look really cool and add another great wall for 2D and 3D designs. Perfect to surround just about any building as the color is very basic, so goes with anything.
Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would/wouldn’t do.  Whatever you decide just remember, this is a Limited-time item…so if you’re thinking about it make sure you make your decision prior to the Stonecutter Event leaving our games July 2nd.
