    Donuts cost way to much they cost $129.99 for boatloads and that is US dollars and the Aussie dollar is down so it costs $152.00 Aussie dollars which is a rip off, they should cost the same the world over and be in local currency!

    The boatloads cost $100 US dollars here in Murica. As for the pricing in other countries, that's beyond the control of EA.
    How is it out of EA's control? They set the price!

    This is to cover the exchange rates and fluctuations in that particular countries money vs the U.S. dollar. Same reason here in Murica we pay $60 for brand new video games. People in other countries pay way more than that. It's all because of the exchange rate

    Unfortunately, the Coffin & Count Burns have been removed they were only available for 1 week only.

    I'll politley disagree with the OP.
    If you want to count the basics of the game,"Homer, Lisa & the Simpson house" as 'free' items vs 'donut' items, then yes, EA provides a massive amount of 'free' items. It's a Freemium game, they gotta get you in the door.
    As someone who's taken a few months off the game and returned in time for the Halloween event, the Donut-to-free ratio is an absolute laugh. Take a look at the above lists, it's running about 3-1 paid, yeah? (2.5-1? I'm not getting out the calculator and I'm bored with this post already) Point being no point, if you want the stuff, make with the cash, otherwise, you get 1/2 **** Springfield and 33% of the event. What's the total cost of the game at this point, $1000? Lol, I'll look for that thread :D See you at X-mas! 8)
