“Like, g'morning! I just love mornings! Always so full of...morning...stuff?”
― Puddles, Wild World
Puddles (チョキ,Choki?) is a peppyvillager who appears in all the games in the Animal Crossing series. Her name relates to her species, a frog, which are known to sit in water bodies known as puddles. Her initial phrase, "splish," is the word associated with the sound of jumping in water. Her new picture quote, "Look before you leap," is a reference to the moral "Look before you leap" in Aesop's fable, "The Fox and the Goat."
Puddles is a frog with different shades of pink coloring her body. Most of her body is dark pink, but a lighter pink color surrounds her eyes and mouth. She has deep-blue eyes and a wide smile. Her initial clothing is the Lovely Tee, which matches her body color. Her appearance somewhat resembles Gayle.
Below is a brief description of the peppy personality. For more information, click here.
Peppy villagers appear to be in a good mood often and are easy to become friends with. As a peppy villager, Puddles will have the tendency to over-react in conversations about trivial subjects, and will usually be over-excited to see the player or other villagers. This villager, like other peppy villagers, will rarely be discouraged from doing anything, including the usual hobbies. Peppy villagers dream of becoming famous in the future and read Ms. Nintendique, an unseen magazine read by snooty, normal, and other peppy villagers in the Animal Crossing Series. Peppy villagers will also have a very short attention span, which means they soon forget some arguments or tasks given to the player which were not completed. Puddles may easily get upset in conversation when the wrong things are said. She will get along well with other villagers, particularly lazy, normal, jock, sisterly and other peppy villagers, but she may annoy and upset cranky and snooty villagers, whose personalities differ to hers. Due to the nature of peppy villagers, she may mention how "old" or "boring" cranky villagers are compared to her opposing, upbeat personality.
Puddles' house in Animal Forest has a small fruit theme. She owns a watermelon table, a juicy apple TV, and two lemon tables. She also displays five shirts in her house, as well as a Simple Love Seat. Her wallpaper is the Citrus Wall, and her flooring is the Kiddie Carpet.
Her house in Animal Crossing has more of a backyard cookout theme, as she owns a refrigerator and a stove, in addition to a lawn chair and a gerbera plant. Puddles also owns two Cabana items and a toilet. Her wallpaper is the Lunar Horizon, and her flooring is the Daisy Meadow.
Puddles' home in City Folk keeps the backyard theme, as she owns a picnic table, a beach chair and a lawn chair. She still owns a refrigerator and stove, but she now lacks her Cabana furniture. Her Tape Deck plays K.K. Ballad. Puddles' wallpaper and flooring are the same as in the previous game.
In New Leaf, her house is quite similar, but with a few minor tweaks. Namely, she now owns two cupid benches, as well as a Minimalist Minitable that displays a Cassette Player. This item plays K.K. Ballad. Her wallpaper has changed to the Dotted Wall, but her flooring is still the Daisy Meadow.
