How to get a froggy chair in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

First of all, make sure to have downloaded the 2.0 update to your Nintendo Switch in order to be up to date. (You know this will be the case when Isabelle discusses ordances when you first log into your island.)

Then, before you storm into the game looking for froggy chair everywhere, know that since the froggy chair is technically just a regular item of furniture, there is no guaranteed way to find one, and instead you must rely on having it being sold or gifted to you.

This means you can get a froggy chair in Animal Crossing: New Horizons by:

  • Purchasing from Nook's Cranny or Redd when it is in stock
  • Found passing in a balloon (it's possible to farm balloons by entering a building to have a conversation with a villager, then leaving before the clock reaches a minute that ends with "4" or "9", such as 2:44 and 2:49.)
  • Found from shaking a tree (you are guaranteed two random items per day)
  • Received as a gift from a villager

Ultimately, all you need is a spot of luck. Players are already out there finding them - whether it's on sale at Redd's...

...or found from a balloon...

So it's just a case of patience. Another option, of course, is to trade or receive one from another player, if they are willing to give it up.

The Animal Crossing 2.0 update and Happy Home Paradise is here! We can help you with the new additions - including where to find Brewster, Gyroids, new villagers, ordinances, new fences, storage shed, new hairstyles, Froggy Chair, group stretching and Kapp'n boat tours. Cooking is now unlockable, so you need to know how to make both flour and sugar, as well as how to grow carrots, potatoes and tomatoes. Meanwhile, if you're new to Animal Crossing, our New Horizons tips can help with the basics. From the off, there's fish and bugs to catch, flowers and fruit to grow with. One long term goal is building your Happy Home Academy score. Finally, you need tools such as the new ladder and vaulting pole to fully explore.
