This article is about a furniture item from the Animal Crossing series. For the item that is located outside the player's house in Animal Crossing, please see Gyroid (outdoor).

Gyroids on the ground in New Leaf

Gyroids (埴輪, 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 can be found buried in the ground, like fossils, but only after rainy days.

A room full of different gyroids in City Folk

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

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, more gyroids appear buried in the ground after it rains for a long time. Lazy villagers comment on this saying that they must like the rain.

Eight gyroids may be active at one time in a room before one of them automatically turns off, although in Wild World, only four may be active at any given time.

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.

In Animal Crossing, Animal Crossing: Wild World, and Animal Crossing: City Folk[edit]

  • 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.
