Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ major 2.0 update added gyroids and gyroids fragments, wobbly haniwa furniture, making noises. There are 36 gyroids collections to find, each with a unique look and sound. Our gyroids in Animal Crossing guide will teach you how to find the gyroids and list all the gyroids in the game.
Gyroids in Animal Crossing
Gyroids are special little decorations that make fun, unique sounds, and they will hum to the music you play. (The gyroids only dance and sing when they are placed in your home. Drop the gyroids on the ground outside and they won’t wobble or make noise.)
The gyroids are based on haniwa, ancient Japanese sculptures buried with the dead, which makes your ability to dig them up in the Animal Crossing world a bit sick. But who can resist a guy who’s funny or makes silly little sounds?
Lloid, the NPC that does the construction on your island, is a gyroid and we’re not really sure why he is sentient or if this means all gyroids are conscious.
Get Gyroids And Gyroid Fragments
To find the Gyroids in Animal Crossing, you’ll have to sail with Kapp’n. Head to your island’s pier and you’ll be able to take a boat ride in exchange for 1,000 Nook miles.
On the island he takes you to, you’ll be able to find the usual fruits and crafting materials – you can even be transported to islands out of season. More importantly, the islands will have the X-shaped holes in the ground you’ve seen to mark all the fossils of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. However, on these islands, you will find a gyroid fragment.
Take this gyroid fragment home, bury it and water it – you’ll see steam coming out as you do this. The next day you will be able to tap your gyroid.
Use Gyroid Fragments
When you first find Brewster to unlock the cafe or take the first boat tour, you may come across the Gyroid Fragment. Think of it as a Gyroid seed! To really have a placeable and customizable Gyroid, you have to develop it.
Once you’re on your island, find a suitable spot to evolve your Gyroid and dig a hole with a shovel. Open the item menu and choose to bury your Gyroid Fragment.
They will fully grow overnight. When you water the gyroids in Animal Crossing, smoke will come out of it instead of sparkling water droplets, like when you water flowers or plants. If you don’t water a Gyroid Fragment, it won’t grow.
Once the Gyroid is fully grown, harvest it by digging it up. Then you will be able to display it in your home. We recommend creating a Gyroid Fragment like you can for your pumpkins and other crops, pictured below.
