Happy Pets Idols offer rewards for a hefty price

Lately, Crowdstar has been releasing a variety of expensive items that cost Facebook Credits rather than the fan preferred currency of Coins. The latest items to be released are a pair of idols in the family friendly game: Happy Pets. The Experience Idol and the Love Idol both offer special bonuses, but is the high price worth it?

The Experience Idol's effect is simply. Once you purchase it and place it somewhere in your Happy Pets estate, it will grant you double experience for everything you do. It never expires either; once purchased, the effect will last forever. Sounds like a good item, but is it fifty dollars good? That's right, the Experience Idol costs 498 Facebook Credits or roughly $50.

Also released, the Love Idol's permanent bonus affects breeding. Buying the Love Idol and placing it in your home will guarantee you 100 percent breeding success once every twenty four hours. This item comes in at a slightly lower price of 398 Facebook Credits or about $40.

The Bible tells us never to worship false idols and that is certainly the philosophy we'll be upholding here. Many of the fans on the forums also voiced their disgust at the ridiculous prices.

However, despite the price, these items are flying off shelves! In addition to the bonus effects granted by the statues, many fans seem to uphold the idols as status symbols, commenting on how gorgeous it looks in their homes. It's true that there's no better way to say, "I'm a Happy Pets high roller," than by displaying these idols in your home.

Either way, head to Happy Pets to check it out for yourself. The items are limited and there's only about 7,000 of each left. Once again, we ask our readers to carefully think about whether this purchase is the right one for them.
