Unsure as to whether we’d be getting new Halloween-themed in-game items, players decided to bring spooky season to the game prematurely with these inspiring island ideas and professional-looking pumpkin patches. Even if Nintendo doesn’t share many new items, the community always keeps it fresh!
I was so excited to finally know for sure that Jack was back when Nintendo announced it during the games first year, that I didn’t even mind the return of that god-forsaken Halloween music (‘witch’ in New Horizons, sounds rather like it could’ve been played by Miles Davis himself…) *Hisses in Animalese!*
But whilst I was busy clapping at the pumpkin seeds on sale in Nook’s Cranny, creative players were busy doing what they do best! Namely, creating creations such as these:
But Wait; There’s More!
For more spook-tacular creations from fans following on from the Animal Crossing: New Horizons fall update, be sure to check out these cool costume ideas here. And whilst you’re in the mood, you seriously need to take a look at these perfect little pumpkin patches (which now contain actual pumpkins!).
Adorable Spooky Game Obakeidoro! Free this weekend
This Animal Crossing Themed Watering Can will hold up to 350 milliliters!
The Tiny Watering Can is such a cute small ceramic watering can that is perfect for succulent and tiny desk plants, it also makes for a super adorable decoration! It is the perfect match for the Tiny Garden Pals. And, in my opinion, one could never have enough planty friends surrounding them.
I love having a wonderful array of green life about, so much so that I wanted to be able to offer a cute, Animal Crossing themed hydration device for all other plants that don’t necessarily live in a Tiny Garden Pal. This Animal Crossing Themed Watering Can still can hold up to 350 milliliters. This way, you can use it to give life sustaining H2O to all your little green friends.
This watering can also comes beautifully packaged in an adorable Animal Crossing themed box, which also makes it a perfect gift. There is also a matching Tiny Garden Pals Gardening Kit that is Animal Crossing inspired.
The gardening kit comes with a bag soil inspired and themed after no other than Leif! In addition to the soil bag you are also getting a growing and caring instruction card that will help you grow your tiny garden pals into a beautiful miniature Animal Crossing themed world. And of course the planter itself, including a mini shovel and so much more, all beautifully packaged in a gift box.
Don’t miss your chance to pre-order this limited print Animal Crossing and Polly Pocket inspired Tiny Village.
If there is one thing that Polly Pocket and Animal Crossing have in common, it is their ability to take an amazing and beautiful world, and put it right in the palm of our hands. It is a skill that few others have mastered throughout the years, and one that I wanted to portray in my culmination of these two wonderful universes.
The Tiny Village captures all the adorability of some of the most iconic characters inspired by the Animal Crossing series, and puts them in a little world all for you.
The Tiny Village includes loads of little figurines that create a charming Animal Crossing style scene. You will notice such stars as Marshall, Isabelle, Ankha and Stitches. There are a few shops to explore, houses to decorate, or your tiny friends can just laze about in the beach area.
The whole thing comes in a Sea Shell shaped outer, well, shell. With the Tiny Village, you can let your imagination run wild, and the possibilities are endless.
The Tiny Village will a be a single print run, as it is an intricate, difficult-to-produce, handmade product. I will be doing pre-orders to allow myself to keep up with resources. Pre-Orders will close without notice, so order while you can. I will begin shipping the Tiny Village shortly after pre-orders close this summer.
Now is your chance to chill with Harv in your very own Animal Crossing themed Tiny Zen Garden.
Looking for a wonderful way to spruce up your personal space? Trying to find that perfect gift for the Animal Crossing fanatic in your life? Or would you just like a charming little Zen Garden to help you find peace at any time you may seek it? If you answered yes to any or all of these, then this little Animal Crossing themed Tiny Zen Garden Kit may be just the thing you are looking for!
The adorableness of this little Zen Garden cannot be overstated. It features a small, hand-painted scene of one of my favorite characters in the Animal Crossing series, Harvey. No one more chill than Harv. And now he can help you “find your center” in your very own home.
The whole kit starts with a fenced in “Zen Zone”. You will recognize the fence as being the Picket Fence from ACNH. You will fill the zen zone with the sand (included in the kit), then place the various composition items to your liking. I added my own moss for effect, but you can choose to add any greenery you wish to bring it to life more. The included items are as follows:
1x Harvey Figurine 1x Harvey House 1x Harvey House firewood stand 1x Zen Bridge 1x Cherry Blossom Tree 6x Stones 1x Sand rake 1x Themed Gift Box
Once your scene is complete, just rake the sand into different shapes and patterns until nothing matters and you are one with the universe. Zen accomplished! And all of this comes in an adorably packaged kit, so feel free to give it as gift to a friend or loved one.
Having a campsite in Animal Crossing: New Horizons can be a super aesthetic little addition to your island. As well as the aesthetic value of making a campsite, the process is also fun and therapeutic. With many of us having missed out on our usual summer holidays, having a cozy virtual campsite can somewhat make up for this.
However, you might be needing some inspiration. The many items and customization options available can often be a little overwhelming. Are you looking to change your island up? Maybe after months of gameplay, you don’t have a lot of space and need some smaller campsite ideas?
Wherever you fall, we’ve got you covered with these super cool Animal Crossing: New Horizons campsite ideas. If you’ve not yet built the campsite, the below steps explain how.
How To Unlock The Campsite?
To unlock the campsite, you will first need to:
Pay off your getaway package debt and upgrade your tent to a house.
Provide the materials required by the Nooklings to build Nook’s Cranny.
Build a bridge.
Craft the required items for three homes and have three new villagers move in.
After completing these steps, the Residents Services building will be built.
How To Build The Campsite?
After you have upgraded the Residents Services building from a tent to a building, you must do the following:
Talk to Tom Nook and select the ‘What should I do?’ option twice. This will prompt the tanuki to share his desire for K.K. Slider to visit the island and put on a show. Tom Nook wishes to invite K.K. Slider, however, he wants to build a campsite first.
Tom Nook will ask for your help in building the campsite and therefore will give you the campsite construction kit recipe .
Next you must craft the kit at a workbench using 15x iron nuggets, 15x wood, 15x softwood and 15x hardwood.
After crafting the kit, you need to find a spot to place it. The location you choose will mark where the campsite will be built.
After choosing a spot for the campsite, return to the Residents Services building. Talk with Tom Nook and the building of the campsite will begin. After building the campsiste and unlocking the game’s amiibo feature, you will be able to add and remove residents to your island.

The holiday of gift giving is just around the corner. I know that many of you out there, like myself, are already getting super giddy about the impending good times.

One great way to show a loved one that you care could be to get them a fully stuffed Animal Crossing themed Christmas stocking to hang above the fireplace, or wherever you choose to adorn your zone with cuteness.

The Animal Crossing Christmas Stocking has a color scheme of classic red/white/green, and it features a great big embroidered portrait of Isabelle dressed in her holiday best. The stocking features a snowy winter wonderland with a little Tom Nook chilling in the trees in the background. It is a super adorable little scene and makes for the perfect cute holiday addition to any home. The entire stocking is very soft, and has a band of super fluffy white cloth around the top and along the bottom.
