Hipbees is an Item that can be found within common locations, including choice enemy Camps, given by Spouses, and rarely as a reward from Seasonal Festivals. Upon being picked up, all of the player's current future Bees and Hummingbirds will gain the ability to turn Weeds into Flowers. This is done by pollinating a given Weed, similar to when one of these Farm Animals pollinate a Crop. Note that the given Flower spawned is completely random and has no dependent variables.
Compared to other means of generating Flowers, Hipbees is among the most effortless, as it requires limited action on the player's part in order to be utilized. This is due to how Bees and Hummingbirds will preform their jobs automatically without the player's influence. However, it does rely on the player possessing enough Bees and Hummingbirds in order to make this Item as profitable as possible. This can be assisted by the means of Beehive, making an excellent combo in that regard. Furthermore, Lavender begins with two Bees by default, and thus can benefit greatly from this Item. Because of how Hipbees has a guaranteed chance to turn Weeds into Flowers this can make it superior to other Flower generating Items. An example of this is Spring Chicken, which also allows for certain Farm Animals to convert Weeds into Flowers, in this case Chickens and Turkeys. However, unlike Hipbees, Spring Chicken only has a 50% chance to activate instead of a guaranteed one. In contrast, it can potentially be easier to obtain Chickens and Turkeys as opposed to Bees and Hummingbirds, due to existence of Egg Carton and Fertile Eggs. Depending on the player's availability of Bees and Hummingbirds versus their amount of Chickens and Turkeys, one of these Items may be superior to the other. As such, Hipbees is dependent on the player's current variety and amount of Farm Animals, and also if or how they plan to gain more of those specific Farm Animals in the future.
