The official New Horizons Animal Crossing collection box has just been released. It is full of wild baked candies and is a good choice for someone who already owns the game and loves it. I will review the contents of the box and assess whether it is a good choice for a personal purchase or as a gift.
Live from NookStore
The packaging (once you’ve moved the markers) looks exactly like the boxes you get in the game when you order from Nook Stop or Nook Shopping. Until the dummy cassette is printed correctly!
The box contains the following:
- Timmy and Tommy Log Calendar.
- Suspend. Throw away the blanket.
- Integrated magazine
- Isabelle’s fluffy socks
- Notes on the Tampa Evidentiary Label
- Peachy and fragrant marshy soil
- Nuclear ink. Drawing bag
The wooden block calendar is quite a size and is made entirely of wood, even with little Timmy and Tommy on it to brighten up your day a bit, a bit thick. This is a day calendar in which you can turn over blocks for each new day. It works perfectly on the bedside table or next to the front of the house. Unfortunately this is a problem, as some numbers are only on one block, e.g. 3 and 0. This means that you cannot display days 03, 04, 05 and 30 correctly. That doesn’t make the box uninteresting, but it’s a bit boring, because it’s something I’d like to have for a while.
The cover spray was styled after the carpet of the Bell Bag in the game, although of course I wouldn’t have stepped on it. It’s a very thin lid, but a good size (higher than most children and can cover a bag of Mustachelax beans!) Fans of the game will appreciate the accuracy of the display.
The tabulated A5 magazine is quite simple, but nice with fake 70 pages. It has a game cover on the front, and the tabs are different fruits in the game. It is arranged with a nice pattern, and the mortgage pages have a translucent plastic lace with the accompanying fruit on it.
The plush socks are soft and fluffy yellow with brown heels that imitate the character of Isabelle. His face is also embroidered on the sides. One size fits all pairs of socks, but not the child. I’m about 6.5 (US) and 37 (EU) and I look good.
Stickers are formed and printed like beets found and exchanged in the game. They’re about forty years old, but be careful when you take them away.
The Peach Slurp is labeled as a stress ball, but it is too soft and bounces more like the Slurp (which was angry at least a few years ago). It’s big enough, and I think kids and adults will love it. There is also a delicious peach smell that makes me look like a Japanese peach coke.
The shoelace is the style of the Nook Inc. backpack and is surprisingly similar. Although it is a much cheaper type of standard ready-made bag. It’s quite a size, because I can put Isabelle’s big stuffed head inside (not in the box).
It’s almost the perfect gift for an Animal Crossing fan, and there are nicer items inside than the usual gift box associated with the game. Unfortunately there was an error in the calendar view, causing some days to be displayed incorrectly. But fortunately this is the only disadvantage (and in Australia the price is too high).
You can buy it in Australia via EBGames for AU$68,00. In America, you can find it at TARGET for $29.99. Although this is difficult to obtain at the moment, because it is sold out on the culture fly website.
