Best thing to buy in game for 60 donuts?

Get Jimbo! Oh. Oh wait ... that's 120 Donuts, a very reasonable price to pay for a muted character.

    Ok so i have 61 donuts in my game atm :D YAAAYYYYY

    However i am finding it difficult to decide what to buy with them, what would you guys say is best?

    Note: I basically have non of the premium (donut) items so far so feel free to suggest anything.

    I'd say hold off until Christmas. 60 is really not going to get you much, and you should be able to get to 90 by Christmas. More options both ways.

    If you have over 10000 Goo, you should get 1-3 per 2000 goo afterwards. Also get some donuts from ghosts.

    If you are max level, you'll hit some bonus levels, also getting 1-3 per bonus level

    We may get about 3-6 level updates by Christmas, each worth 1 or 2 donuts each

    You may get lucky and get 5 donuts from Side Show You, or a weekly Mystery Box.

    It is very probable assuming you are max level and have already gotten all the personal halloweeen prizes.

    Well, the Halloween event should be netting you no worse than 3 donuts every 3rd day, which means that you should be at 75 at least by the time the event is over. You should get the XP bar bonus at least once more in October at worst, and at least 3 times in November. That's 12 more (I'm assuming you will pay to guarantee the 3 donuts each time) which bring you to 87. If we get two more levels in the next 6 weeks, that's a guess of 3 total for leveling up.

    So yeah, I estimate 90. maybe a couple more, maybe a couple less. but certainly doable.

    EDIT - forgot about the ghosts. I've gotten over 20 donuts just from ghost tapping/haunted buildings/gremlin tapping. Max your friends out and tap as many as you can per day. you could easily get 5-10 more at least before the event it over.

    Well, that pretty much removes your shot at 90 before Christmas. Still, I would hold off on buying anything right now.

    I would hold off, I just bought the Aztec theater this past week because I was tired of Squeaky Voiced Teen not having a 4 hour task and wish I would have kept saving my donuts, in hindsight it hardly seems worth it.

    Save until you have enough for the Springfield sign.

    It's the only premium item that is an iconic, must-have design element.

    yeah you should be OK... but I'd suggest playing a little more if you want to make it and you're going to lose a week on holiday. most people hit 10,000 awhile back.

    You cut off the part where I said "IF YOU'RE LUCKY" you can win donuts ;). Doesn't happen a lot, but will strike at some point.

    You can sell the newspaper dispensers for cash, then use that cash to buy more, and then sell those and you get XP. The XP can then level you up ;) A very long and inconvenient way though, Weather Stations is the preferred method.

    If you are only at that amount with a 14 days left, 5 of which you won't be playing, it will be extremely tight. I'd recommend more neighbors now and you may get there in time.

    I put Fat Tony into his hot tub for 60 donuts, use it regularly. Squeaky-voice Teen and Moleman have jobs both in SF and Krustyland. So does Kearny. Premium character jobs earn more money and XP which can help shorten the time between bonus donuts.

    yeah... you're at a 330-something daily average right now. If you could get it up to 500 you'd be golden. Even with losing a week.

    I should also mention that Moleman would definitely be my choice if you just had to buy something now. Voiced, jobs in both SF and KL, and his 24 hr job is hilarious.

    You can get more XP by buying Superindentant Chalmers "ONDA" car - that'll get you over 1000 XP. You can also buy a lucky scratch ticket for 99 cents. If you get 1 ticket per week, that'll give you a chance to win 100 donuts.
