What’s New On Actual Bunny Day & Everything You Should Do In Animal Crossing: New Horizons

8 months ago 37 Comments

While the Bunny Day Event as a whole began in Animal Crossing: New Horizons last month on March 28th, the actual Bunny Day has arrived today on April 4th, 2021 with Zipper T. Bunny back on your island for some more fun!

Now that everyone’s favorite Easter Bunny is back on our islands, he’s got a few extra tricks up his sleeve for new content that wasn’t previously available until today. In this mini-guide, we’ll cover everything that is new to discover on the actual Bunny Day and what you should do!

Note: This article has been refreshed for the 2021 version of Bunny Day. The content is the same as last year with nothing new for veteran players who experienced it already.

Get Bunny Day Arch DIY Crafting Recipe

You can find Zipper T. Bunny in front of Resident Services with a set of festive balloons on April 4th! When you first speak to him today, he’ll give you a brand new Bunny Day Arch DIY crafting recipe that wasn’t previously obtainable during the event.

To craft the Bunny Day Arch, you need to use the following crafting materials:

  • 2 Earth Eggs
  • 2 Stone Eggs
  • 2 Leaf Eggs
  • 2 Wood Eggs
  • 2 Sky Eggs
  • 2 Water Eggs

Can’t find Zipper T. Bunny near Resident Services? Make sure you are playing on April 4th and your version number shows Version 1.9.0b with the ‘b‘ activating this part of Bunny Day. You will need to link to a Nintendo Account and connect to the internet for this to be unlocked.

Trade In Easter Eggs To Get Bunny Day Basket

After you’ve learned the Bunny Day Arch DIY crafting recipe from Zipper T. Bunny, there’s a few more options that become unlocked with him!

First of all, you can get another new item by trading in one of every Easter Egg type. If you can bring him one Earth Egg, one Stone Egg, one Leaf Egg, one Wood Egg, one Sky Egg, and one Water Egg, he will reward you with a special Bunny Day Basket!

Unlike every other Bunny Day item in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the Basket is not a crafting recipe and doesn’t need to be crafted — you get the complete item! Maybe this Zipper guy isn’t so bad after all?

Exchange Easter Eggs For A Different Type

If you happen to need any help with getting more of a certain Easter Egg type, Zipper T. Bunny can help you out with that problem now too!

In exchange for three of the same Easter Egg type, he’ll give you one Easter Egg back of your choosing. The 3 for 1 exchange rate isn’t great, but if you’ve got a huge surplus of certain eggs and have few of another egg, this can be a good solution especially as many Bunny Day items require every Easter Egg.

Since Water Eggs and Sky Eggs tend to be some of the most common, it’s likely you would use the exchange to trade in those Easter Eggs for rarer ones like Earth Eggs! But you can trade any type of eggs you wish.

Craft All Furniture To Get Wobbling Zipper Toy DIY Crafting Recipe

After crafting the Bunny Day Arch, and all of the other Bunny Day furniture items from balloons and egg bottles, speak to Zipper T. Bunny again to unlock yet another item! For a full list of items, check out our complete Bunny Day Guide here.

This time around, he’ll teach you the Wobbling Zipper Toy DIY crafting recipe giving you yet another Bunny Day item to make. We hope you’ve grown to become a big fan of this bunny, because the item is literally a toy version of him!

Keep in mind that you only need to craft all of the Bunny Day furniture items in Animal Crossing: New Horizons to be eligible for the Wobbling Zipper Toy recipe. You should be able to skip crafting all of the clothing and hat recipes and still unlock the Wobbling Zipper Toy!

To craft the Wobbling Zipper Toy, you need to use the following crafting materials:

  • 4 Earth Eggs
  • 4 Stone Eggs
  • 4 Leaf Eggs
  • 4 Wood Eggs
  • 4 Sky Eggs
  • 4 Water Eggs

Craft Wobbling Zipper Toy To Get Bunny Day Wand DIY Crafting Recipe

Finally after crafting the Wobbling Zipper Toy, the gleeful Zipper T. Bunny has one final trick up his sleeve! The final Bunny Day prize for all of your effort is revealed to be the Bunny Day Wand DIY crafting recipe and given to you completing your Bunny Day collection.

Like all of the other wand items in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the Bunny Day Wand allows you to store multiple clothing outfits into the tool allowing for quick and easy changes.

To craft the Bunny Day Wand, you need to use the following crafting materials:

  • 1 Wobbling Zipper Toy
  • 3 Star Fragments

The Wobbling Zipper Toy you just crafted earlier to unlock the recipe can be used to create the Bunny Day Wand, alongside 3 Star Fragments that you find on your beach after wishing upon shooting stars at night.

Note: If you participated in Bunny Day last year and already received this recipe, Zipper appears to give you the direct item this year.
