Acorns are items that appear in Wild World and New Horizons.

In the games

In Wild World

Acorns will appear under trees during the Acorn Festival. Giving certain amounts to Cornimer will result in him giving the player an item of Mushroom Furniture. Acorns, Large Acorns, Round Acorns, and Small Acorns won't rot when they are kept in the player's pockets, unlike turnips. Tom Nook will pay 400 Bells for an acorn. However, Cornimer won't accept Rotten Acorns. It is sensible to sell Rotten Acorns to Tom Nook, as he will take them for 2 bells, like any other acorn. It is also smart to send them in letters to villagers. They will treat it like any other gift.
