Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ Ver. 2.0 update re-introduced another series mainstay to the game: gyroids! These cute — or creepy — dancing, noise-making machines can bring a whole new vibe to any room, or complement a K.K. track you may be playing.

Read on for information about what gyroids are, how to find gyroids, and a full list of all types in the game!


What are gyroids?



Gyroids are new furniture items introduced in ACNH’s Ver. 2.0 update (not to be confused with character gyroids like Lloid, who collects donations for island projects). These are dancing, noise-making items that you can place around your island or your home. They were first introduced in the original Animal Crossing and have been available in every game since.


How many gyroids are in New Horizons?


There are 35 different types of gyroids in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Almost every gyroid also has customizable variants, so if you include those, that brings the total to 189 gyroids.

Past games included different size variations of gyroids — for example, a tall alloid, a mini alloid, and a mega alloid. In ACNH, though, there are only one size of each.


How to unlock gyroids in New Horizons


In order for gyroids to start appearing on your island, you must have updated your game to Ver. 2.0 and finished the quest to find Brewster. Brewster will then give you your first gyroid fragment, which you can then bury and water to get your first gyroid!


How to find gyroids in Animal Crossing: New Horizons


Like past games, gyroids are unearthed from the X marks on the ground using a shovel the same way as fossils. Gyroids will more often appear the day after it rains or snows. Full gyroids can be dug up, but you can also unearth gyroid fragments. By reburying these fragments and watering them, they’ll grow into a full gyroid overnight
