Over the past two weeks, I’ve been slowly working towards crafting all of the Bunny Day recipes for Animal Crossing. Lately, the main bottleneck has been water eggs. I felt like I was getting more eggs than fish during the first few days of the event but I’ve been hard-pressed to find them this week. My wife, on the other hand, has been catching 3 or 4 water eggs in a row. Go figure…
This morning, I went down to the plaza to see Zipper Right out the gate, he tells me that I can trade him three of the same type of egg for one egg that I need. Which means I finally had a use for the 60 or so Leaf Eggs I’ve accumulated and didn’t need to worry about the water eggs. Zipper also mentioned that I don’t need to craft any of the recipes I discovered myself. That would have been nice to know in the beginning so I didn’t throw all my eggs into the eggshell outfits. At least they sold for some bells so it’s not all bad.
I only had 3 more recipes to make including the Bunny Day Arch from Zipper. Unfortunately, Zipper only trades one egg at a time so I spent a good 5 minutes running through the same dialog to get all of the eggs I needed. After crafting everything, Zipper threw in one more recipe, a Wobbling Zipper Toy. It looks just like Zipper, lifeless eyes and all.
After crafting the toy, Zipper gives me a DIY recipe for a Bunny Day wand. After some research, it turns out the Bunny Day wand isn’t any different from the other wands which store 8 outfits and let you quickly swap between them. I would have made one but they require the Wobbling Zipper Toy and I like the toy more than the wand. Could I make another toy after making the wand? Sure but then I’d have to spend even more time trading eggs which I don’t have a desire to.
Earlier, I said that Bunny Day wasn’t a bad event and I still stand by that. I enjoyed tracking down eggs and crafting the recipes over the last two weeks. Most of the recipies were not worth keeping but they sold for a decent chunk of bells. I ended up keeping the Bunny Day Clock, The Bunny Day Rug, and the Bunny Day Backpack. I’m keeping the Wobbling Zipper Toy too. It’s just creepy enough that I think it’s funny to have at my house for a while. I’m a bit disappointed the final reward wasn’t a Bunny Ear hat, or even better, a Zipper hat but I’ll take the toy as a consolation prize.
Now we can get back to our regularly scheduled activities of paying off loans and accumulating a horde of furniture and clothes!
