Toy Day is just around the corner in ACNL! I’ve been busy collecting all of the festive items that are available during the holiday season, such as the Festive Tree and Stuffed Stocking that you see pictured here. It’s so cool to see items that were once DLC in ACCF as regular, purchase-able items in ACNL.
I didn’t do a good job during Turkey Day last month, so I did a little more homework on Toy Day to make sure I’d be prepared this time! Unfortunately there’s no real trick to Toy Day, there’s nothing to stock up on… other than taking notes of all the hints that the townies have been dropping this month! Here’s what my townies have been asking for…
Thank goodness for screenshots or I’d be even more lost. Unfortunately, I haven’t done a great job getting all the info I need to properly play Santa on Wednesday! I still have a little time for sleuthing tomorrow so I will hopefully find out some kind of gift ideas for Dizzy and Aurora, because I have no photos of them telling me what they want. Maybe I’ll send out one of my secondaries, Ash or Poketch, to find out! I need to talk to all of the townies too, because I need to find out their favorite colors. This is a lot of work!
Speaking of a lot of work, has anyone tried to make a snowman yet? There are tons of items that you can get from snowmen in ACNL! In fact, you have to create an entire Snow Family to get some of these rare items. The easiest snowman to make is the Snowman, which consists of just two giant snowballs. When you build a snowman, he gives you a Snowman Bingo card and you have to work to fill it out each day. His eyes spin and randomly land on a number, and you get to check it off if it’s on your card. Note: You can’t drop the bingo card, so be prepared to hold onto this card for a while until you get that bingo! The items that you can win from bingo are new to the Animal Crossing series, and are all themed on outdoor winter sports.
The Snowboy is next in terms of size, and is exactly the same as the “Perfect Snowman” from Animal Crossing games in the past. He even gives you the same reward: the Snowman Series! This is a personal favorite of mine. It’s funny looking. 😀
The other two snowmen are the Snowmam and the Snowtyke. They are both tricky to make and I haven’t perfected them yet. The Snowmam is a lady and she gives you items from the Ice Series, which is quite beautiful. I’ll probably transfer it over from my Japanese town, Wasabi. The really difficult part about getting items from the Snowmam is that you don’t just have to build her correctly. You also have to bring her three snowflakes, which can only be collected on days when it’s snowing – just use your net!
The Snowtyke is the toughest snowman to make, only because if you want to get an item from him, you need to have all three of the other snowmen types in your town already! But the whole family doesn’t have to be perfect, because the Snowtyke will give you different items depending on how many of the other snowmen are “well balanced.” For more detailed info on the whole Snowman family, visit the guide on Thonky.com. If this seems overwhelming, don’t worry! This snow isn’t going anywhere until March, so we have over two months left to get these items. But I can’t stress enough the importance of asking your friends to help! Find out what bingo numbers your friends have, and try to find out when it’s snowing in your friend’s towns if you need to collect snowflakes. You can join ACUKE and SPLI if you want to make more ACNL friends. 🙂
I hope everyone enjoyed the Winter Solstice holiday on Saturday. I enjoyed collecting all of the different light sticks. Good luck to everyone on Toy Day, I hope you get all the presents you want – and Jingle’s photo too! Happy Holidays from Jubilife!
