Theme (furniture)

From Nookipedia, the Animal Crossing wiki

A furniture theme is a collection of items found in the Animal Crossing series. Unlike furniture series, the items featured are often very diverse throughout the theme, rather than having a very similar appearance. Items within a theme would not be included with a furniture series or a set.

Complete theme bonuses[edit]

In Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk, there is a bonus of 3,000 points from the Happy Room Academy for a complete theme, in addition to a further 3,000 points for every item in that theme. For example, the Boxing Theme, with 10 items, will award 33,000 points. This bonus was removed from Animal Crossing: New Leaf for unknown reasons.
