Boy's Day

From Nookipedia, the Animal Crossing wiki
"Spring is upon us! Flowers and warmer temperatures are a prelude to summer fun! It makes me want to fly a kite. Or a windsock. Be on the lookout for one!"
— Bulletin Board, Animal Crossing

Boy's Day (known as Children's Day in Animal Crossing) is an event in the Animal Crossing series that occurs on May 5. It appears in the Japanese version of Animal Crossing and in Japanese towns in Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

Main appearances



In Doubutsu no Mori+[edit]

During Children's Day in the Japanese version of Animal Crossing, Tortimer will appear near the shrine. If spoken to, he will give the player a Locomotive Model. In international versions, this item is instead obtained on Father's Day. Additionally, from April 20 to May 5, windsocks appear around the player's town. While the event itself does not occur in international versions, the windsocks remain.

In City Folk[edit]

In New Leaf[edit]

In Japanese towns in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Isabelle appears in the plaza on Boy's Day and will give the player a Newsprint Helmet if spoken to.
