    Different Hair Styles for Girls

    You can go into the salon and choose your own style and color by answering a few of Harriet's questions. To get your hair pulled up in a hair-tie, answer "big nights" to her first question, "duh" to her second question and "RAWK!" to type of song.

    For hair color, choosing hot will get you pink, red, or yellow, while cold will get you blue, green, or white. Then you'll be able to pick your exact color by choosing the following:
    - Young = blue
    - Lush = green
    - Radiant = white
    - Mysterious or Safe = brown
    - Lighthearted = yellow
    - Fiery = red
    - Flirty = pink

    Of course there are many different styles, but I don't know exactly what they are. I hope you all like what you come up with. But remember, getting your hair done costs a whopping 3,000 bells! So think about it before you drop your cash for an ugly hair-do!

    Annoy Your Neighbors

    This is a perfect way to get rid of neighbors you don't want. Just make sure you've visited a friend's town before! First, buy a net. Once you find the neighbor you want out, or just want to annoy, equip the net and hit them with it! Keep hitting them over and over. They'll probably whine and ask why you did that. If you accidently talk to them, just say, 'I don't need you!' or any other option that gets you out of the conversation.

    But don't write threat letters! Next time you talk to them, they'll be all proud that they got a letter, and they won't notice what it says!

After they are done, they will give you 3 choices to say something back. Pick the first one and bring them medicine for the next three days. If you don't do this all of the days in a row,
    then they will stay like this longer but it will still be three from where you left off. On the fourth day, they will still be in their house. Go and visit him or her and they will be welll again. Talk to him or her and he or she will thank you. Then he or she will give you a present.

    No Need for Watering Cans

    Tree sightings

    The best way to grow a tree is to plant it when it's raining because it will grow automatically and won't need to be watered. Another way to make them grow automatically is to first chop down an unneeded tree, then take your shovel and dig it out, and dont FILL IN THE HOLE. Instead take the fruit you want and bury it. It shoud start growing by the next day. You don't need a watering can for either of these methods.

    Lyle Scam

    When Lyle comes to your town he will follow you around everywhere. If you talk to him he will ask a questionniare then try to get you to buy his insurance. His insurance says whenever you get stung by a bee he will send you 100 bells in the mail. By it for 3000 bells. When you buy it he will ask you when you want Redd to come to your town. Tell him whatever day you prefer and he will set up a tent. He will send you some passwords to get into his tent. When you go into his tent he will have very rare items believe me it is worth it.
    P.S. Lyle will come back to your town and offer insurance again. Do not talk to him because he will charge you 6000 bells and he will keep doubling the price every time you talk to him.

    These are the steps in order:

    1) get 90,000 bells
    2) get the golden shovel (get it by burying a shovel for 24 hours and digging it up)
    3) get an axe
    4) cut down a tree
    5) dig up the stump with the gold shovel
    6) plant the money in the hole where the stump was
    7) when the tree is fully grown, it should hold 90,000 bells

    Note: if you do this, you do not lose money or gain money...this trick is mainly for decoration.

    Get a Perfect Town Rating

    First, divide your town into 16 x 16 acre squares, similar to the acres in Animal Crossing for Gamecube. You can use patterns on the ground to mark the acres. Next, make sure every acre has 12-14 trees that aren't touching each other. Then add 3 flowers to every acre and you should have a perfect rating, as long as there are no weeds or trash in your town.

    Visit the Moon!

    Gulliver (in the UFO) can be shot down out of the sky. After you give him his 5 parts, he gives you a gift. But he has a certain limit on his gifts (14). On the 15th time fixing up his UFO, he'll tell you that he's out of gifts (uh-oh). He says the next time he comes here, he'll have an idea of something to give/do to you. So, wait until the next time he comes over. Shoot him down (for the 16th time) and collect his parts. He'll say he knows how to reward you, and you will find out tomorrow. When you go outside your house, Gulliver will greet you and ask you to follow him. He'll bring you to his ship and you and him will get in it. He'll take off and after a minute of seeing stars, you'll land on the moon. You won't find much, you can see craters and the earth, but not much else. The only interesting thing is this weird plant. It has 1 piece of fruit, shake it off. You will find that the whole "tree" falls down. You can pick up the fruit and the "tree". The "tree" can be used as furniture and the fruit picked, so you can harvest more "trees".

    Warning: Don't sell the fruit. It's only 1,000 bells and you'd have to revisit the moon (on your 32nd, 48th, 64th, etc. time of helping Gulliver you'll get the same offer. It's basically a repeat, of the pattern you've already followed, so ya) to get a new one. The "trees" are cool in the house, and fit well with the space theme. They have an eerie green glow, and they have purple "bark". Very alien like.

    When you have the second store, you can take a shovel between 12:00 a.m. and 2:00am, and go hit the back of the second Nooks store and the wall will fall down. Then you will see Nook sleeping in his PJs holding a teddy bear! (This might work with other stores, but you must do it at the right time I told you)

    Fast Bank Interest

    To get more money on Animal Crossing you have to put money in the bank. Then SAVE and turn off the DS. Turn the DS back on and go to the DS symbol at the bottom of the screen where you select game. Select it and go right one to the symbol of a calender and a clock. Select it and then go up to the calender symbol and select it. You will probably see that your year setting is set to whatever year it is. (for example 2006.) Go accross to the year column and change it to 2099. Then select confirm, go back, and then QUIT. Then it will say "The system will now shut down" and you must select yes. Turn the DS back on and select Animal Crossing Wild World. Continue your game and you will have gained interest!!!

    Heal Yourself for Free!

    Just got stung by a bee? It happens to all of us. So you're just about to waste hundreds of Bells on some meds.
    Stop! You don't have to do that!

    Just save. Then turn the DS off, then back on. Select Animal Crossing from the DS menu and log into your town.
    Instantly healed!

    One thing, though. If you're going around shaking every single tree in your town, and you're only halfway there, might as well save later.
    I can almost assure you that you're gonna get stung again. It just saves time. And you don't lose your place.

    Hope this helped!
