From Nookipedia, the Animal Crossing wiki
The player taking a Maple Bonsai from the lost and found in Animal Crossing

The lost and found (formatted as the Lost & Found in Animal Crossing) is a feature in the Animal Crossing series where items appear for the player to take for free. It appears in Animal Crossing, Animal Crossing: Wild World, Animal Crossing: City Folk, and Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Random items appear in the lost and found occasionally, and if a structure is built over a dropped item, it will appear in the lost and found.

Appearances[edit]

In Animal Crossing[edit]

In Animal Crossing, the Lost & Found is in the police station. There can be up to twenty items in the Lost & Found; any subsequent items replace the oldest one. The following items from Tom Nook's store can appear naturally in the lost and found if they are in the town's common rarity group: furniture, wallpapers, carpets, clothing, umbrellas, and stationery. Additionally, Axes, Fishing Rods, Nets, and Shovels can appear in all towns.

In Wild World and City Folk[edit]

In Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk, the lost and found is accessed by speaking to Booker at the checkpoint. There are fifteen item slots in Wild World and twelve in City Folk; however, only ten items can naturally appear in either game. Pitfall Seeds often appear in the lost and found

In New Leaf[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, the lost and found is in the police station like in Animal Crossing. It is the only place Tricky Pitfall Seeds can be found.
