Animal Crossing player’s Polly Pocket style character art is a perfect crossover
An Animal Crossing: New Horizons player this week shared artwork depicting ACNH villagers in classic Polly Pocket clamshell dollhouses.
A Animal crossing: new horizons player shared a piece of art with a brilliant crossover this week, showing Animal crossing characters from the classic Polly Pocket dollhouses. One of the essentials of the game is the creativity of the user, as well as the lush environment and the unique characters in Animal crossing inspire a lot of player art, both inside and outside the game.
Polly Pocket dolls have been around since 1989 and are famous for their little rubber accessories and clamshell dollhouses. While the brand has moved away from this dollhouse design in recent years, the clamshell style is still very nostalgic for those who have known it from childhood. Animal crossing is a series of games focused on the choices and creativity of players, giving them the opportunity to design an entire island however they see fit. Users can also choose the ten anthropomorphic animal characters to populate their city, with the game offering 413 unique villagers for players to choose from. Animal crossing the villagers have 8 different personality types and span 35 different species, each having a home interior with a different themed aesthetic.
Reddit user PeachyLeee shared a collection of their work this week, showing several Animal crossing villagers in different environments, all locked in a clamshell case. Known as lillianimation on other platforms, this artist has designed a total of 45 Polly-Pocket-style villagers so far. Each of these rooms is clearly designed taking into account the aesthetics and personality of the villager, as well as the interior design of their house. For example, Lucky’s somewhat disturbing villager’s clamshell is themed with a graveyard – just like her house – while Flora, the flamingo villager is a relaxing seaside scene much like the interior of her home in Animal crossing (which has a pond). Each piece of art is incredibly detailed, and some even contain Easter eggs for fans of the game: Lucky’s shell stained glass window appears to have been a long-standing feature. Animal crossing the character Rover and the bunny sisters Chrissy and Francine can be seen on a poster in Sylvana’s bedroom.

Using the classic Polly Pocket clamshell design makes these works of art incredibly unique and nostalgic. The time this dollhouse style was most popular – the early 2000s – coincided with the release of the first Animal crossing game, making this work particularly sentimental for those who were fans of both. The artist obviously knows a lot about Animal crossing – the high level of detail in each piece can only come from someone who is familiar with the series and the characters. Although there have been a few Animal crossing toys available for fans to purchase, they cannot compare to the level of detail shown here.
Part of why Animal Crossing is so beloved by fans is its unique artistic style, both in its environments and meticulously crafted characters. The game is about building community, and the fact that Animal crossing: new horizons includes over 400 villagers to choose from, gives players a huge amount of options when it comes to who this community is made up of. This awe-inspiring piece of art shows just how special the myriad of villager choices the game offers are all in their own way.
