Lost Property is a type of item that can appear in the lost and found, guarded by Booker. Items that can be found here include shirts, furniture, pitfall seeds and tricky pitfall seeds, flowers, and saplings. Players can take any item held at the moment, regardless of whether they own it or not. If a villager's house is built on top of a tree, bush, or flower, a sapling, bush, or flower bag appears in the lost and found of the type that was lost, respectively. If a villager's house is built on top of a dropped item, the item will appear in the lost and found. In both cases, the item will be lost if there is no lost and found.
In Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk, lost property is now located in the town gate. In Wild World, the lost and found appears to hold up to 15 items, and in City Folk, it appear to hold up to 12 items, but in both games, it actually has only a capacity of 10 items. Pitfalls appear more frequently in these games.
