---------Snowman Advice------------ by: T. Cromis

1. There are always two snowballs. If you accidentally break one or
roll it into the river or something, save/quit, and when you come back
there will be two again.
2. Getting the furniture is MORE than just getting the head half the
size of the body (although that's important). The snowballs have to be
just the right size, too. In other words, the head can be half the size
of the body, but if they are both too small or too large, no furniture.
3. If you roll the big ball into the little ball, the big ball will go
on top, and you get insults instead of furniture. So make sure you are
pushing the little ball when you connect them.
4. Most often, the two snowballs are far apart, with one being on the
upper level, the other on the lower level, and across the river from
each other. I guess they didn't want it to be too easy.
5. You get the furniture in the mail the next day, so you don't need to
talk to the snowman to get it.
6. There is a list of items somewhere in
7. According to the guide, you can make a snowman every day from Dec 25
to mid Feb.

How to catch the banded dragonfly - the moment it comes onscreen, it

You gotta be quick! Concentrate on getting JUST that bug. Stay on the GBA
island and go back
and forth on the two island acres over and over until you see him appear,
then chase and swing

You may to chop down several trees on the island to do it, too. You need
room to chase.



Islander Preferences

In case this is new to you, I'm including basically the whole section from
my faq at

I've collected a bunch of information off of a looong gamefaqs post on
this, and would like to
get more.  Any contributors are welcome!  Please email to
what your islander's favorite fruit, and favorite items are! Please note
the difference between
favorite items and "impulse buying" below.   I will update this
periodically.  If you email me
about favorite fruit, please also tell me WHY you think it's the favorite,
so I can tell if you're
doing it the "right" way.

If you're new to this, when playing Animal Crossing Island directly on the
gameboy (NOT
through the gamecube), if you feed your islander its favorite fruit, you
get 30,000 bell bags!  It's
hated fruit produces a little skull cloud for a coupla seconds, and you
get nothing.  Some people
find that there is a fruit that often gives 10,000 bell bags.  I am
calling this a "second fav" fruit.

Turns out that the islander's favorite fruit and hated fruit are NOT
random.  A particular islander
will always love and hate the same fruit.  For example, Drift always hates

It appears that the items islanders ask for are not random! Each islander
has his or her own
"favorite items." It seems, however, that they do NOT ask for a complete
furniture set (such as
all the regal furniture), although some ask for many items from a
particular set.  Also, they may
ask for a RANDOM item IF IT IS IN YOUR INVENTORY (this has been coined
buying" No point in keeping track of these, because they can be anything.
So, please, IF YOU

Just to clarify:  The favorite fruit is the one that makes the islander
drop big money bags, plus
music " picks up in tempo", and the islander keeps the stupid grin on his
face, with the ^^ eyes.
first start playing on the GBA island, it will take 3 of most fruit to get
your first money bag. The
favorite fruit makes them happy faster and it will only take 2. If you
want to tell for certain what
is the favorite fruit, try this with different fruit, but you must try it
with a different fruit EACH
time you START playing on the GBA so that the islander always starts at
the same level of

Note:  A claim has been made that you can get more bells from non-favorite
fruit.  If you'd like
to investigate this, take a set number of favorite fruit (say 15) to the
island.  Keep track of total
bells.  Then do the same with each kind of liked fruit.  Email me the
results. If you aren't bored
out of your skull by then, feel free to do it all again! ;)

Another note: islanders often complain and give back furniture you have
given them, even if it is
a favorite item.  They will often ask for it back again.  I suggest
storing stuff they give back in
the island house.  Then if you carry it with you, they will often pay you
for it again, even if they
haven't asked for it recently!

What I've done is put the letter "y" behind an item for each person who
confirmed an entry (so
one y means two posts said the same thing, two y's mean three posts, and
so on).  If something
says YES behind it, that means I'm sure of it (at least ten confirmations)
and I don't need more
confirmations. Of course there could still be errors.  No way for me to
verify better than noting
when multiple posts/emails say the same thing.  If the favorite fruit is
all in CAPS, it means that
at least one person very clearly knew what they were doing.  The table
looks good in courier 10-
point font, but may get messed up by some email systems.
