Act fast: Nintendo Animal Crossing Collector’s Box arrives in stores

A Nintendo Animal Crossing Collector’s Box has quietly arrived at Target and other retailers and it will likely sell out very quickly. This box of goodies has a bunch of themed content inside at a reasonable price, making it the perfect gift for the Animal Crossing: New Horizons fan in your life.

This officially-licensed collection of Animal Crossing merchandise has reportedly started appearing at Target retailers across the United States and select retailers in other countries just as acorn season ended in the game. Similar boxes have been sold for other Nintendo games, but Animal Crossing has proven to be extremely popular — so players will have to act fast if they want to get one before Christmas.

What’s in the Nintendo Animal Crossing Collector’s Box

The officially-licensed Nintendo Animal Crossing Collector’s box is filled with seven cool items, all of which are packed in an iconic Nook Inc. box. Here’s what you get:

  • A Timmy and Tommy Nook desk calendar
  • An Animal Crossing notebook
  • Turnip sticky notes pad
  • Isabelle socks
  • Bell bag blanket measuring approximately 63″ (160cm) x 40″ (101cm)
  • Peach stress ball
  • A drawstring bag
  • A Nook Inc. box

Where to buy the Nintendo Animal Crossing Collector’s Box

The Nintendo Animal Crossing Collector’s Box has a retail price of $29.99 which makes for a pretty good value for all the items that come in the box. Unfortunately, actually getting one of these coveted collector’s boxes may prove to be a challenge.

This item has a listing on US retailer Target’s website, but it appears to only be available for in-store purchase. At least one person has reported making an in-store purchase on Twitter, so one of the best options to get this may be to head to your local Target in person and hope that they have one in stock. Australian gamers can pre-order this collection for AUD$68.00 (with an AUD$10.00 deposit) at EB Games.

Players hoping to buy one of these boxes online aren’t likely to find this on Amazon just yet. However, an eBay listing for the Nintendo Animal Crossing Collector’s Box is selling it for the slightly higher price of $35. Scalpers are already selling this item at higher prices elsewhere, so this may be the best way to get one without going to a store. This eBay listing also ships to many other countries for an additional shipping cost.

The Nintendo Animal Crossing Collector’s Box will likely sell out fast, especially when one considers the exceptional popularity of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. This might make a great gift for the Animal Crossing fan in your life if you can’t quite afford one of those special edition Animal Crossing Nintendo Switch consoles.
