Buying a Homer Buddha can be confusing if you’ve never bought one before. That’s because it usually works a little differently from other things you buy in the game. (Although, as you’ll see in the comments section below, that doesn’t seem to be the case for Gil’s sale!)

Like the Heart Grinder, the Homer Buddha isn’t a decoration that you can place in your town. It’s really a Mystery Box in disguise – but one for premium items.

You won’t receive a Homer Buddha decoration, which is a bit of a shame because it would make a great item to put on display in your Springfield. Instead, you’ll get the character or object that it contains. You’ll be able to find it in your inventory. If you missed the notification, look out for something that wasn’t there before. (And if you see a Homer Buddha in your inventory, it will transform into something else as soon as you click on it!)
