The Simpsons: Tapped Out Update Adds Thanksgiving Balloons

Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade is one of November's biggest highlights. In fact, Bart Simpson officially joined the list of balloons in 1990. That said, Electronic Arts just updated The Simpsons: Tapped Out with balloons of its own, based on characters Itchy & Scratchy, Santa's Little Helper and Blinky the radioactive fish.

Thankfully, there's more to these attractions than simple aesthetics. Placing them in your virtual Springfield will result in bonuses. Santa's Little Helper, for instance, improves your vanity rating, while Itchy grants you two percent bonus money and XP to all jobs. Snowball 2, on the other hand, offers 0.50 percent bonus money and XP.

Now before you go balloon crazy, know this: each one costs some form of currency.

Blinky Balloon: 16,500 Cash
Santa's Little Helper Balloon: 30,000 Cash
Snowball 2 Balloon: 20 Donuts
Itchy Balloon: 40 Donuts
Scratchy Balloon: 1,000 Cash

Definitely cool, but we suggest you act quickly, since these balloons will only be available for a limited time. On a side note, EA's update should also improve the game's performance.
