The Sims Social: Bathe, drink and hit the head with new Dr Pepper decor

Now your Sim can take a refreshing dump using an official Dr Pepper toilet in The Sims Social (pictured right). We're not sure what poor soul was asked to write the copy for this item, but here's what he or she came up with: "Dr Pepper Toilet -- Proof that Dr Pepper really does make absolutely anything better." Maybe afterwards, you can flush that Dr Pepper toilet with some Coca-Cola for a quick clean-up.

Part of a 7-piece furniture set, the toilet and the other DLC goodies can be gotten by nabbing codes from specially marked Dr Pepper products and registering them on the promotions page of the Dr Pepper website. (Note: You don't need to register with the same email address as the one for your Facebook account for this to work.) The other six pieces are: Dr Pepper Bath, Dr Pepper Fridge, Dr Pepper Wheel Bench, Dr Pepper Clock, Dr Pepper Mirror, and Dr Pepper Sink.

Keep in mind, one code only gets you one item. Codes need to be gathered by the end of this year and redeemed by the end of next January. Each code should be twelve letters total and make sure there's no spaces between the letters when you submit or it might not enter. Once that goes through, head to My Account and click on the "Get Prize" link. If you don't like the Toilet, you can set it up to grab your 475 House Value Points, and then sell it for 62 Simoleons.
The Sims Social Dr Pepper items
This also isn't the first time Playfish and EA has partnered with the soda giant. Dr Pepper took center stage in Restaurant City last year for a 1950s nostalgia celebration, which is probably why they've been left out this time, even though Pet Society is in on it too. Also, whereas that promotion had items open to everyone, this one requires a bit more work and is only available to US players. Not that this has stopped overseas fans from paying US players for the codes. While that level of dedication is remarkable, caveat emptor!

Are these free items enough to make you buy Dr Pepper? Which Dr Pepper item in The Sims Social would you most like to own?
