Should I Spend Donuts On The Whale

Valentine’s Day has arrived in Springfield!  But, with all of the new Valentine’s premium items it may be overwhelming trying to decide which items to buy and what to pass on. 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 & what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add The Whale to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the Pros and Cons of adding this Water Mammal to your Springfield.


Decoration: The Whale
Donut Price: 300 donuts
Dimensions: 7 x 14
Bonus: 7% more $$$ & XP
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +3000
Unique: No

-A HUGE Bonus Payout
-Animation: The Whale dives into the water and pops out while spouting water from the blowhole when tapped.
-Sound: Makes Whale calls when tapped.

-OH MY 300 DONUTS???!!
-Massive cost for an item that is not used by any characters or tasks in the games.

Final Thought:
I did buy a Whale (well they are unlimited so I actually accidentally purchased two of them. Make sure YOUR confirm donuts spend is set to OFF!) It REALLY hurt losing 600 of my precious pink sprinkled sugary sweets. GAH! I do like the idea of a Giant Mammal in my Squidport. It does have amusing animation and a huge bonus…but honestly…I would say save your donuts on this one. You can purchase TWO Buildings w/characters for the cost it take for this ginormous water creature…with payouts and tasks. I just do not see a great benefit to it. Other premiums with better odds can also be purchased to equal the bonus payout and still hit under the 300 donut mark. So unless you are a completionist and HAVE to get every last item, I would save those precious donuts and pass on this one.

Where Did THAT Come From- WHALE

OOOOOOOOOh, EA gave us ANOTHER giant item for our Squidport. Yours getting a bit filled up now too? A Giant Whale!! Didn’t see that one coming, did you?

Whale now, I bet you are wondering why on earth did they stick this massive mammal into our game? Where did it come from? What does it have to do with the Simpsons? Well just sit tight, grab a nice cup of your favorite drink, snuggle up, and listen close as I tell a tall tale of a Whale.
