Official Animal Crossing Merchandise
Nintendo hit a home run this year with the release of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Whether you were forced to stay home because of a lockdown, shelter-in-place or Circuit Breaker, millions of people worldwide found themselves united in their passion for the game. Now, you can take your love to the next level by decorating your house with Animal Crossing merchandise too.
Nintendo Tokyo’s Dōbutsu no Mori (“Animal Forest” in English) collection consists of all sorts of items you can use around the house. Think kitchen mittens, jars, cups, room shoes and even skincare. The Animal Crossing merchandise is exclusive to the official Nintendo store in Tokyo’s Shibuya Parco. And while you can’t check out the shop for yourself just yet, the collection is now available for pre-order on Nintendo Tokyo’s My Nintendo online store. The items will be delivered by the end of October.
In the kitchen
Circuit Bakers, rejoice! The Animal Crossing Kitchen Mitten combines 2 of your biggest Circuit Breaker passions into 1 adorable item. And if you find yourself no longer having the time to cook or bake now that Phase 2 is here, well, you can always keep it as a reminder of what an extraordinary time it was to be alive.
You’ll spot many characters depicted on the colourful mitten, including Timmy and Tommy, as well as villagers like Bunnie and Filbert. The mitten measures around 28cm by 20cm. Made of cotton and polyester, it retails for ¥1,430 (~S$18.60).
Keep yourself entertained while eating with the 2 lunch mats. The first is a repeat of the same design as the kitchen mitten above. The other is a yellow and white checkered print with the characters lined across the front. Both lunch mats measure around 32cm by 42cm. They retail for ¥990 (~S$12.90) each.
