The Wheelchair in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is one of the many items you can collect throughout the course of the game. Though it doesn’t have a certain use as a tool for gameplay, it’s still nice to see. With all of the customization options like hair dye in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, it’s good to see those who need such mobility aids who wish to represent themselves in their games getting a nod of recognition. You can decorate the wheelchair in the character customizer, so that’s pretty cool too. The only downside is that it’s a pure furniture item, so it cannot be used to get around in-game.
There are three ways to get a wheelchair in the game, luckily you only need to find it once in most cases.
The Floating Balloon Presents are a source that some players have reported finding the wheelchair in. Just equip your slingshot and shoot the presents to see what you get.
From the store
You might find the wheelchair for sale as one of your daily furniture options. It’s a random spawn, but the price is pretty reasonable, with reported prices for the wheelchair floating around 2,700 Bells.
From a Friend
The final option for getting the Wheelchair in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is to use a friend. You can gift items to any players who join your game, and yes that includes both local and online. If you don’t have any friends with the game, there is a growing online community, like the Animal Crossing subreddit, where players share their friend codes looking for a fun time together exploring each other’s islands. If you have an item that you don’t want and someone has a wheelchair, consider trading.
