This article is about a furniture item that makes noise. For other uses of gyroid, see Gyroid.
"Have you ever seen those gyroids up on the stage at the club? It's weird, but I didn't actually put them there. They just appeared out of the blue one day. How bizarre!"

Gyroids on the ground in New Leaf

Gyroids (はにわ, Haniwa) are furniture items in the Animal Crossing series, primarily used as furniture inside the player's house. They are not to be confused with the gyroid that appears outside the house in Animal Crossing. They spawn randomly buried in the ground, like fossils, but only after rainy or snowy days—lazy villagers in New Leaf claim that they must like the rain.

The name "gyroid" likely originates from the word "gyrate," meaning to spin, referencing the motion that gyroids make.

Each and every gyroid is unique in its own way: the way it sounds, how fast the tempo is, and pitch all depend on the size of the gyroid and which family it belongs to. If one of K.K. Slider's songs is played on a stereo, the gyroid will match the tempo of the song so that they synchronize.

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, four gyroids are present in Club LOL, and may be swapped out for other gyroids; however, they may never be added to or taken.

A number of gyroids may be active at a time before one of them automatically turns off:

If a gyroid is sold to Tom Nook, Timmy and Tommy, or Reese it is worth 828 Bells. If a gyroid is placed within a house, it is worth 828 HRA points.

Gyroid Storage[edit]

The gyroid storage interface.

In Animal Crossing: City Folk, upon befriending Brewster in The Roost, he will allow the player to store gyroids with him, freeing up space from the player's storage. This is not available in other games.

List of Gyroids[edit]

There are 127 gyroids available since Animal Crossing. The Brewstoid family was added in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, bringing the number to 131. Not all gyroid families have all the sizes of gyroids, and a few do not have a neutral size.

Alloid family[edit]

Alloids make a sound similar to a steel drum.

Trivia[edit]

Haniwa (埴輪) clay figures from the 6th century. Note the resemblance of in-game gyroids.
  • Gyroids, known in Japan as haniwa, are funerary objects from the Kofun period buried with the dead and thought to serve as a container and protector for the soul.[1]
  • Gyroids sell for 828 bells and score 828 HRA points. This is a reference to the Japanese pronunciation of "828" (happyaku ni juu hachi). The underlined letters indicate the sounds that spell out haniwa, the Japanese name for gyroid.
