This article is about the items distributed in City Folk from the Animal Crossing series. For the items distributed in New Leaf, see Downloadable Content.

Distributed Items are items sent to the player from Nintendo in City Folk. They are sent to the player using the Nintendo WiiConnect24 system, which enables the Wii to connect to the internet, even when it is in stand-by mode. The items are linked to real-time events in the real-world which do not exist in game, such as St. Patrick's Day which exists in the real-world but doesn't appear in City Folk as a celebrated event.

WiiConnect24 needs to be enabled both on the Wii and in the game to receive the items.

Below are the items distributed in City Folk.
