Crazy Dave at his shop trying to induce the player into buying.

Crazy Dave's Twiddydinkies is Crazy Dave's shop and is located in the trunk of his car. The player gains access to it after finding his Car Key at the end of Level 3-4. On Android and iOS versions, the Car Key is given to the player by Crazy Dave after More Ways to Play is unlocked on Level 2-2. Once in every level set (Fog and Roof) afterwards, new merchandise will be added. The player can purchase more seed slots, plant upgrades, new defenses for the Pool and the Roof, Zen Garden items, upgrades, various House Blueprints (Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network only), and Mini-game Packs (iOS and Android only).

In the Xbox Live Arcade, and PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita version, Crazy Dave will give the player "CRAAZY DEALS that you'd have to be dead to turn down!". It is unclear what these deals actually are, as no one has confirmed getting one yet. When obtained, they might show up in the player's mail.

Items available

Extra seed slots

These can be purchased at any time, as soon as the previous one has been purchased. They can also be purchased before the shop is unlocked, as whenever the player has enough money for the next one at the end of a level, Crazy Dave will appear and give them the choice to purchase it.

  • Extra seed slot seven - $750
  • Extra seed slot eight - $5000
  • Extra seed slot nine - $20,000
  • Extra seed slot ten - $80,000
    • The tenth seed slot is not available on iOS, Mobiles with Samsung Bada OS, Nintendo DS, and Android versions of the game because the screen is not large enough to fit it.

Game Packs

Game packs are, as their name suggests, packs that contain mini-games or puzzles. There are two separate mini-game purchases: ZomBotany (iOS and Android versions only) and Slot Machine (HD iPad version only). As of update 3.4.2 in the IOS version, the five mini-game packs were removed from the shop, allowing users to purchase each mini-game individually from the mini-game menu, overall, allowing you to buy mini-games while farming less money.

If the player has the Enlightened achievement and they try to buy a sprout from Crazy Dave
  • If the player idles at Crazy Dave's shop, he will say one of the following:
    • "I eat food off the floor!"
    • "All Twiddydinkies are priced to move!"
    • "Our prices are unbelievable!"
  • In the trunk of Crazy Dave's car, the title WAR AND PEAS can be seen, an allusion to War and Peace, a Russian novel by Leo Tolstoy.
    • In LawnStrings.txt, ZomBotany mini-games are labelled 'War and Peas'.
    • In the iPad version, the book sports a peculiar orange scribble.
    • This was also referenced in Chompzilla's first strategy deck in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes.
  • In the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game, Crazy Dave's license plate displays various lines instead of "Menu", "Main Menu", and "Go Back". Some lines include MEAMDAV ("Me am Dave"), SODALID ("Soda Lid"), VRM VRM ("Vroom Vroom"), SMTNFNY ("Something Funny"), UN EMPLD (Unemployed), MAD4GRVY ("Mad for Gravy"), FLOR FUD ("Floor food"), and RDWARER ("Road Warrior").
    • In the TV version of the game, except for SODALID, RDWARER, SMTNFNY, MAD4GRVY, FLORFUD, UNEMPLD AND VRM VRM, there are also new lines including IM CR8Z ("I'm Crazy"), BUYSMTN ("Buy Something"), GR8 DLZ ("Great Deals") and 1N1RTRE.
    • In the Stop Zombie Mouth! video, Crazy Dave's license plate says FLOSSBOSS ("Floss Boss"). However, the top right screw appears to be missing.
  • After the player has bought the tenth seed slot, it will say "Sold Out" as intended, but the player will be able to see behind the letters a "11 Slot" caption, which means even more seed slots could've been planned to use in the game, but were scrapped.
  • After buying a level five blueprint from Crazy Dave, the blueprint will say "Sold Out", but the price will increase by $8000. It is unclear if PopCap Games intends to bring even higher tier blueprints to the game later in the form of an update or downloadable content (DLC), or if the system is just set to add $8000 each time. This also happens with seed packets on versions that have only nine seed slots. After the player buys the ninth seed slot, the price will increase to $80,000.
  • In Crazy Dave's Car Trunk, a figure of Lex, the protagonist of Bookworm, another game made by PopCap Games, can be seen.
  • The background of the shop changes depending on the player's level progress in Adventure Mode. If they are playing DayPool, or Roof levels, the background will turn into a day background, and when they play NightFog, or Night Roof levels, the background will turn into a night background.
  • There are roller skates in his trunk for some reason. Also, in the iPad version, there is a brain in his trunk as well.
  • On the iPhone, iPod Touch and Android versions, the shop is obtained when More Ways To Play is unlocked on Level 2-2 so the player can buy mini-games. Other things do not appear until the bacon is obtained on Level 3-4.
  • In the PC trial version, the full version of the game is an item in the shop.
    • Additionally, the Twin Sunflower cannot be bought in the trial version.
  • The Imitater is the only plant sold in Crazy Dave's Twiddydinkies that is not an upgrade plant.
  • In Cannons Away of Plants vs. Zombies 2, if the player reaches the combo of five or higher, it will say "Twiddydinkies!".
  • In Plants vs. Zombies (Nintendo DS) The Wheel Barrow And Tree Food for the Tree of Wisdom Will display as Coming Soon for those who have not bought the Tree of Wisdom yet.
  • According to the Plants vs. Zombies Readme, his car is a Corolla.[1]
