Lottie (タクミ, Takumi?) is a character that made her first appearance in Happy Home Designer. She works for Nook's Homes, and is also Lyle's niece. She works in Paradise Planning in Happy Home Paradise, a paid DLC of New Horizons.


Lottie is a pink otter with a white face, shiny black nose, and small eyes with three eyelashes on each. She has brown hair tied up in a bun with an aqua polka-dotted bow. She wears an HHA jacket, blue skirt, and aqua pumps, which clack on the ground as she walks. On random days, she will be seen without makeup and in slightly different clothes: her bow is now gray, she wears a black skirt and black shoes, and her eyes are now tiny black dots. If the player has designed her house or invited her to the campsite, they can visit her and find her in casual wear: she wears a red Nook's Homes tracksuit, white shoes, and maintains her no-makeup appearance.


In Happy Home Designer

Lottie's provides the tutorial tasks for the player, first teaching them how to design homes using her own house as a testing ground. She later assists them with learning new features and with different tutorial houses.

When the player is done with their first client, Lottie allows them to go outside of Nook's Homes to scout clients out for themselves (though they are select clients at this part of the game, they are not yet randomized).

When all the pre-set clients have had their houses designed Lottie will be done telling the player tutorial information and simply assist them with getting any other client set up. If the player owns Lottie's amiibo or amiibo Card, they can also redesign her house.

In New Leaf

Lottie was added to New Leaf in the Welcome amiibo update. She gives the player a Nook's Homes model if the player owns Happy Home Designer. The day a secret storeroom is added to the player's house, Lottie can be seen standing next to Lyle at the HHA desk. She will then host a seminar that teaches the player how to move furniture around using the touchscreen.

In New Leaf and Pocket Camp, Lottie works for the Happy Home Academy, while in Happy Home Designer, she works for Nook's Homes, similar to how Digby and Lyle started working at Nook's Homes in HHD.

In New Horizons

Lottie was added to New Horizons in the Happy Home Paradise paid DLC on November 5, 2021. Her role in New Horizons remains similar to Happy Home Designer, assisting the player with the design of holiday homes.

In amiibo Festival

Lottie is a playable character in amiibo Festival, available when the Lottie amiibo is scanned on the Wii U. Sometimes when the player playing as Lottie lands on an event square in the Amiibo Festival Board Game mode, a random event specifically related to Lottie may appear.

Lottie has 6 unlockable costumes for the game, unlocked through leveling up the Lottie amiibo:

  • Nook's Homes employee (Level 1)
  • Nook's Homes employee without make-up (Level 2)
  • Red sweatsuit (Level 3)
  • Night out dress (Level 4)
  • Blue party gown (Level 5)
  • East-Asian outfit (Level 6)

  • Lottie coincidentally shares her name with Lottie the Otter, a character introduced in Return to the Hundred Acre Wood.
  • Although Lyle and Lottie have a difference in appearance from Pascal, all three characters are otters. Pascal is a sea otter while Lyle and Lottie are river otters.
  • She seems to have a crush on Digby, as shown when Tom Nook introduces him to the player, Lottie has a heart appear over her head as she turns her head to Digby.
  • The official Animal Crossing Twitter account (under Isabelle's name) was been temporarily changed as though Lottie was using it, since August 20, 2015.
  • On some uncommon occasions, Lottie can be seen without makeup, with a gray bow and black shoes.
  • When Lottie walks around, it makes a sound different than other characters. The only other character who shares this trait is Isabelle.
  • If Digby's amiibo is scanned and the player designs a house for him, the next time they visit Lottie will be there and he will say that they are on a date.
  • Lyle says that he is very proud of Lottie, but he says he does worry about her, "It's all that makeup she wears." This hints that he may think she wears too much.
