Animal Crossing

Today sees the beginning of the Toy Day event in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, meaning you can now get your hands on a set of Christmas toys for a limited time only.

Following on from last week's Turkey Day Thanksgiving event, Toy Day celebrations are running from 1st - 25th December, with the 24th being the big day itself. Expect to see plenty of festive, holiday-themed decorations popping up on your island over the coming weeks, including decorated trees which might drop special ornaments when you shake them.

If you want to get stuck in immediately, though, you can head on over to Nook's Cranny to purchase the limited-time Christmas toys we mentioned above. As long as your game is updated to the latest version, you should see the following toys appear at the seasonal furniture spot in the bottom-left of the store starting from today (thanks, AnimalCrossingWorld):

Toy Price
Dinosaur Toy 2,400 Bells
Dollhouse 4,000 Bells
Kids' Tent 4,500 Bells
Mini Circuit 3,800 Bells
Pop-Up Book 2,000 Bells
Puppy Plushie 2,400 Bells
RC Helicopter 3,600 Bells
Tin Robot 3,500 Bells
Set of Stockings 2,000 Bells

As with most items, you'll find that you can only pick up one particular colour variation for each item from your own Nook's Cranny store, but you can always organise a trade via mail to pick up different sets. Those stockings in particular are sure to make your home look very Christmassy indeed.

Remember to jump into the game on 24th December to spot Jingle the Reindeer and join in with the festive activities – hopefully these new toys will help get you into the Christmas spirit while you wait.
