Children's Day or Boy's Day, is an event in the Animal Crossing series that occurs on May 5. It is celebrated in the Japanese version of Animal Crossing and in Japanese towns in Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

Appearances[edit]

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.
