― Jambette, City Folk

Jambette (エスメラルダ, Esumeraruda?, Esmeralda) is a normal frog villager from the Animal Crossing series. As a normal villager, she will appear hospitable towards the player and be easy to befriend. Jambette's name seems to derive from the French "jambes", meaning "legs" - frogs' legs being a well-known French dish. Her initial phrase, "croak-kay", is a combination of "croak" (a sound frogs make) and "okay". This may be another French-based pun, as "croak-kay" is pronounced the same as "croquet", a game originating in France. It can also be a tie to another frog villager, named Croque. Jambette is absent in Wild World but returns in City Folk. She has the fashion hobby.


Jambette in Animal Crossing

Jambette is a green frog with lighter green cheeks, thick bright pink lipstick, blue eye shadow and two black eyelashes. She initially wears the Prism Tee.


Below is a brief description of the normal personality. For more information, click here.

Jambette has a normal personality, and frequently acts kind towards the player. Normal villagers generally get along well with lazy, peppy, smug, snooty and other normal villagers. Jambette may conflict with cranky and sisterly villagers. As a normal villager, Jambette will usually wake up at 6:00 am and is easier to befriend than most. Both normal and peppy villagers reference an unseen friend known as Moppina.


In Animal Crossing, Jambette has a playroom or daycare theme towards it, owning a train set and a Kiddie Couch. Five gyroids are in her house, including some sproids and drilloids. She also owns a gelato umbrella. Jambette has the Modern Tile floor along with the Kiddie Wall. She owns no stereo in this game.

In City Folk, Jambette's house has a cabin-like feel to it. She owns two Classic Sofas, with a fireplace in between them. She also has three plants, an Exotic Screen, and a Phonograph that plays K.K. Country. Her wallpaper is the Lattice Wall, and her flooring is the Mosaic Tile.

Jambette's house in New Leaf is very similar to her house in City Folk, with the biggest difference being that she has more items from the Classic Series. She now has a Classic Sofa, a Classic Vanity, and a Classic Buffet with an aroma pot on top of it. She still has her three plants, and her phonograph, which still plays K.K. Country. Jambette's wallpaper and flooring choices are unchanged from the last game.

Profile The rumor around town is that Jambette goes through an entire tube of lipstick each and every week. If that's true, the she goes through over fifty tubes per year! How in the world can she afford that? Fishing? Bug-hunting?
