The catalog is a feature that appears in all Animal Crossing series games. It is a feature in Tom Nook's Store and Timmy and Tommy's store in Animal Crossing: New Leaf that allows players to browse all items they have bought or received as gifts. Most of these items can be purchased from the catalog, but some items, such as fossils and gyroids, 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 (Animal Crossing: New Leaf only). Exclusive items such gifts from Tortimer, Katie and Gulliver cannot be purchased, though they do appear in the catalog. 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.
In New Leaf, the catalog is unlocked by gaining the first upgrade to Timmy & Tommy's store, T&T Mart, which has a machine to allow the player to order items the player had previously obtained. Unlike previous games, artwork cannot be ordered through the catalog. However, 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.
