FarmVille Anti-Valentine Decorations: Broken Heart Home, Barbed Heart, and more

Remember back in the middle of January, when Zynga asked users what they thought about potentially having an Anti-Valentine's Day theme of items in FarmVille? While the majority of this month's festivities have been about celebrating the light and cheery side of love, Zynga has come through with their impromptu suggestion of releasing Anti-Valentine's Day items in the game, as they have released a whole set of decorations in tonight's update.

The first item is actually a building, which comes with one of the best animations I've seen in the game. It is the Broken Heart Home, and it is available for 18 Farm Cash. This is a fairly large item, both in terms of its base size and its height, as a dark rain cloud hovers over the home, sending a never-ending rain-shower onto the home below. The home is also decorated as its name suggests - as a broken heart with a crack down the center - so if you're single this Valentine's Day, or just appreciate the darker theme of this item, make sure to give it a look.

As for the new purely decorative items, there are five to choose from, with one in particular bordering on being Anti- or Pro- Valentine's Day. That item is the Valentine Willow, an animated purple tree that drops hearts from its branches. Again, this is only a decorative tree - it can't be harvested from, so don't purchase this one if you are expecting to make a profit out of it. Adding a Valentine Willow to your farm will cost 6 Farm Cash.

The other decorative items are more decidedly Anti-Valentine's Day, and come in the form of two topiaries - a Barbed Heart and a Dark Heart - a Black Rose Arch, and a Heart Broken Gnome. For those that were playing the game around Halloween of 2010, you'll recognize this Black Rose Arch as an item that was released in the game last October. The price has remained the same over its relatively short absence from the game, as you can pick one up for 10,000 coins. The Barbed Heart and Dark Heart topiaries also cost 10,000 coins each, and will reward you with 100 XP for purchasing them.

Finally, the Heart Broken Gnome is another premium item, only being available for 15 Farm Cash. For that price, you'll be able to add this sad little fella to your gnome collection, as he stands with a broken box of chocolates and wilted flowers.

All of these Anti-Valentine's Day items will be available in the game for the next two weeks, giving you plenty of time to celebrate your hatred of this admittedly mushy holiday on your farm.
