  • Zipper T. Bunny Money

    Do you want to make more than 100,000 bells in half an hour? then this what you do:

    1. set the date and time to when the zipper comes to your town. (the rabbit will come in late march to the middle of April.)

    2. go speak with him at the town hall

    3. go around town and dig up all the stars you should have all the bunny eggs then crack them open and see what's inside.

    4. you will probably find candy but after you dig them all up ther should be 12 bunny foils.

    5. go back to zipper T. bunny and give him the foils one by one and he will give you egg items.

    6. go to tom nook and sell them all.
    (each item is worth 9000 bells!)

    7. voila over 100,000 bells.

Animal Crossing: City Folk Hints

  • Importing From DS

    When you transfer your data from your DS it can seem like nothing happened. So whats the point? If you go to the catalog (at Tom Nook's) in City Folk all your old stuff is for sale. You have to buy it all again, but you can still get your old stuff.

  • Mush Furniture

    Entry location: All over your town, in Autumn
    Scattered about your town, there'll be mushrooms of different sizes and shapes. Sometimes, when you pick a mushroom up, it will actually be a piece of a rare set of furniture called Mush Furniture. Here's what I've discovered so far:

    Mush Table
    Mush TV
    Mush Stand
    Mush Dresser
    Mush Chair
    Mush Stool
    Mush Lamp
    Mush Carpet
    Mush Wallpaper

  • Shoe Color Guide

    When you visit the city there will be a skunk-thing guy sitting on some steps. When you talk to him he'll ask you if you want your shoes shined. Depending on the color of your hair (which you color at The Shampoodle) your shoes will change to the same color. To get your shoes the way you started, select change style.

  • Message Bird

    Entry location: The Message Board outside of the Town Hall.
    When there is an unread message on the Message Board, a canary will be sitting on it. When you read the unread messages, the bird will disappear and not come back until there is another unread message on the Message Board.

    This is quite useful when you don't feel like looking on the Message Board just to see if there are any new messages.

  • Mushrooms

    If you look around every day at 3:00pm you will find a bunch of mushrooms in front of trees. pick them up, and 1 every day will be a piece of mush furniture. The rest you can sell at Tom Nook's for a good price.

  • Food Festival

    On November 27 at around 3 pm go to the town hall and you will see the mayor. He will give you a fork and knife and ask you to give it to some one. Instead if you find a turkey hiding behind houses or trees talk to him and he will trade you fork and knife for furniture. Do this repeatedly until the mayor is out of forks and knives.

  • Secret Club

    Entry location: The City in an alleyway next to the theater
    Go to the city on the bus and go in the alleyway on the side of the theater.
    To get in first you have to go and find someone in the club (The only person I found was Fang) and then one time when you talk to them they will tell you about it and send you a message in the mail. The club has rare stuff inside that you can buy but it cost 3,000 bells to get a membership!

  • Magic Money Rock

    You have all heard about the magic money rock, you know, look like a Phizzle by running around town hitting rocks with your shovel.

    But, even though you look really stupid it is a great way to make some quick money (Up to $8,100 bells)
    The order is-

    first hit-100 bells
    second hit-200 bells
    third hit-300 bells
    forth hit-500 bells
    fifth hit-1,000 bells
    sixth hit-2,000 bells
    seventh hit-4,000 bells
    eight hits plus- nothing else

    Okay heres the thing, you all know that when you hit the rock you get pushed back a little so you have to move slightly back forward so you don't miss the rock after getting pushed back, so you have to walk back forward once or twice before hitting again (if you want to get the last 4,000 bells you CAN'T walk forward after getting pushed back)

    To solve this problem you simply have to dig a hole behind you before you start hitting the rock so you don't get pushed back while hitting the rock.


    Note: If you stop hitting at any time you will not get the last 4,000 bells

  • Snowman Items

    When there is snow on the ground there is a chance that you will find two small balls of snow on the ground. If you take one ball and make it huge while keeping the other small then you can make a snowman. The snowman will come to life and mail you a random piece of snowman furniture.

  • Easy Bells

    First get the golden shovel then bury any amount of bells with it (10,000 would be good) water it then wait about 4 days and you will have triple of what you buried (the bells will keep growing back I think).
