Animal Crossing Gyroids are part furniture, part creature items that you can find in New Horizons.
A series staple debuting in Update 2.0, each type of Gyroid plays a unique sound and can be combined with others to create unique music sets.
There are dozens available to find and assemble, and over the years they have become one of Animal Crossing fans’ favorite collectibles and displays.
What are gyroids in Animal Crossing: New Horizons?
Gyroids are cactus-like creatures that you can collect in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. They will then play a particular sound effect depending on which Gyroid family they belong to, and by placing different Gyroids together, you can create unique music that will click, hum or hum in the background.
In addition to combining with other Gyroids to create unique musical combinations, it will also sync with nearby music sources, such as KK Slider tracks that will play nearby.
If you’ve been playing New Horizons for a while, you may already recognize them as friendly creatures that help you raise funds for projects in your city. The gyroids referenced here are pieces of furniture that you can collect and display in your home and around your island, each with their own unique characteristics.
How to get gyroids and what to do with gyroid fragments in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Gyroids can be found on the islands found on the Kapp’n boat tours.
As with fossils, you will find cracks in the ground. Use your shovel to dig them up and receive Gyroid fragments.
These fragments are not yet gyroids and require more preparation. When you return to your island, dig a hole, select the Gyroid fragment in your inventory, and then bury it. Now use a watering can to water the hole. If steam comes out of the hole, you’re all set.
The next day, dig up these holes. The Gyroid fragment will now have matured into a full Gyroid, of which there are dozens of varieties available.
If you want to build your Gyroid collection, repeat this cycle: take a boat tour of Kapp’n once a day, collect a shard, and plant it on your island to mature the next day.
Note that learning about Gyroids is part of the steps to unlocking Brewster, who is apparently on a quest to find some before recruiting him to his island cafe. He even gives you a Gyroid Fragment in the process!
