The Catalog is a feature that appears in all Animal Crossing series games. It allows players to browse all items they have obtained, and can be found in Tom Nook's and Timmy’s and Tommy's store (New Leaf only), or Resident Services (New Horizons only). Most items can be purchased from the catalog, but some items, such as fossils and Gyroids, items from special events, or DIY items are not available for purchase. The catalog keeps track of furniture, carpets, wallpaper, Gyroids, fossils, clothes, umbrellas, accessories, stationery, tools (Animal Crossing only), and music (New Leaf & New Horizons only). Items ordered via the catalog will be mailed to the player at the next mail delivery, and in Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk, will award Nook Points. The catalog will be transferred from Animal Crossing: Wild World to Animal Crossing: City Folk if, during the start of the latter game, the player imports their character from the DS game.
Prior to New Leaf
Animal Crossing: New Leaf
In New Leaf, the Catalog is unlocked when the first upgrade to Timmy & Tommy's store, T&T Mart is built. It can be accessed via a machine Unlike previous games, artwork cannot be ordered through the Catalog. The Catalog is in alphabetical order, and includes a search function to allow the player to find a specific item more easily. The search function was improved in the Welcome amiibo update, and no longer requires exact search terms to find items. In addition, if the player sells their town, their catalog can be sold for additional funds. Phineas will also award the player with badges for filling in 20%, 50%, and 80% of their Catalog.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons
In New Horizons, the Catalog is unlocked when Nook's Cranny is built. It can be accessed at the Nook Stop in Resident Services, along with the ABD and Nook Miles rewards. DIY items and items obtained from special characters cannot be bought from the Catalog, with the exceptions of rugs bought from Saharah or anything bought from Kicks. Additionally, there are Nook Miles achievements for filling in the Catalog. By ordering 100 items via Nook Shopping, the player can unlock the Nook Shopping app, which allows them to view the catalog if they are not currently visiting a dream island. The player can only buy up to five items for themselves or sending it to resident players per day.
