This article is about the furniture item from the Animal Crossing series. For the item that is outside, please see Gyroid (outdoor).
Gyroid
Gyroids (埴輪 Haniwa?) are unusual furniture items that appear in all games.

Though mostly furniture items, gyroids also exist as NPCs. In GCN games, a Gyroid is built on the outside of the player's house; in Animal Crossing: City Folk, a gyroid named Lloid is an auctioneer; and in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Lloid collects donations for Public Works Projects and loans tools to players on Tortimer Island. All gyroids, furniture or otherwise, end with "oid".

Furniture gyroids are buried like Fossils and randomly generated each day at 6am, though they are only found after rainy or snowy days. There are many gyroids (127 in Animal Crossing: Wild World), and each is unique in sound and shape. All are part of a family of similar-sounding gyroids. If one of K.K. Slider's songs is playing on a stereo, all active gyroids will adjust tempo to match. The word "gyroid" comes from the word "gyrate" or "gyre", a term relating to spinning.

There is a limit to how many gyroids can be on at a time in a single room. Turning on an additional gyroid will cause one of the other gyroids to stop automatically. This limit is 14 gyroids in Animal Crossing, 8 gyroids in Animal Crossing: City Folk, and 4 gyroids in Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

If a player sells a gyroid to Tom Nook or Reese (Animal Crossing: New Leaf), it is worth 828 bells. If the player places one in their house, it is worth 828 HRA points.

Brewster

Brewster is known for his liking of gyroids. Gyroids can be seen on the shelves behind him in The Roost. In Animal Crossing: City Folk, once he warms up to the player, he will offer gyroid storage.

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, gyroid storage has been eliminated, but Brewster will eventually allow the player to work for him. He will pay the player in coffee and various items from the Café Series, including special Brewster-themed gyroids, called Brewstoids).
