This page is about the handheld item. For the balloons that hang in the air with presents, see Balloon (floating).
A player with a Bunny O. Balloon in City Folk

Balloons are a handheld item that the player can hold and can also be placed as furniture. If the player trips while running, is stung by wasps, or falls in a pitfall (except in New Horizons) while holding a balloon, they will lose that balloon. Variants of balloons include Bunny Balloons and Heart Balloons.

Obtaining[edit]

In Animal Crossing and Doubutsu no Mori e+[edit]

In Animal Crossing, balloons are given out by Redd at the lake during the Fireworks Festival on July 4. Tom Nook will also give the player a free balloon in his store during a One Day Sale. In Doubutsu no Mori e+, Tom Nook sells balloons during One Day Sales in addition to the free one. Balloons can be held or placed as furniture, but they cannot be dropped, only "let go" which releases them into the sky. There are five colors of balloons and three colors of bunny balloons:

In City Folk[edit]

Artwork of Phineas with a bunny balloon

In City Folk, balloons are obtained free of charge from Phineas in the city. The player can choose between balloons and bunny balloons, but the color is random. Bunny balloons cannot break when the player trips or is shot at with a Slingshot by another player.[citation needed] There are eight colors of balloons: blue, cyan, green, indigo, orange, pink, red, and yellow.

In New Leaf[edit]

Balloons on a Tortimer Island tour

In New Leaf, balloons are obtained from Happy Home Showcase players when visiting them via StreetPass. Regular balloons are obtained by StreetPassing the same player two or three times; bunny balloons for five times, and the new heart balloons for seven times. They come in the same colors as in City Folk.

Balloons also appear in the Tortimer Island tour Balloon Hunt and are worth one point each when popped with a slingshot. Bunny balloons are worth three points. In multiplayer, players may pop balloons of their color only.

In New Horizons[edit]

In New Horizons, balloons can be obtained as a prize from Redd's Raffle for  500 Bells, or found in Nook's Cranny outside of August for  600 Bells. Balloons do not appear in the catalog. They come in five colors:
