“Good evening, (player)! Or should I say "good night"? It's so late!”
― Sandy, Pocket Camp
Sandy (ラン,Ran?) is a normalostrichvillager. Her initial phrase, "speedy," is most likely inspired by the fact that ostriches are the fastest running birds. Her name originates from the rumor that ostriches bury their heads in sand when they are startled. Despite not having an icon like other villagers hidden in the data for Happy Home Designer, textures of her are in the game's code.
As most "ostrich" villagers actually have plumage resembling other bird species (such cranes, an emu, a flamingo, etc), Sandy is the only villager who is clearly based on an true ostrich to appear in any Animal Crossing title to date.
Sandy returned to the series in New Leaf, as part of the Welcome amiibo update. By scanning amiibo cards, this villager can be met via the campground and invited to the town.
Sandy is an orange ostrich with blue eyelids and yellow legs. She has a black and white tail and wings with a red beak. She has four black hairs on the top of her head. She initially wears the Blue Scale Shirt in Animal Forest e+, the Wide-Stripe Tee in New Leaf, and the Wide-Stripe Tank in New Horizons.
Below is a brief description of the normal personality. For more information, click here.
Sandy 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. Sandy may conflict with cranky and sisterly villagers. As a normal villager, Sandy 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.
Sandy's house has a space theme, including items such as the Spaceman Sam, flying saucer, asteroid, and a few construction items. She also has three gyroids that play a very hollow space-like song. When given a stereo, it will play K.K. March.
In Welcome amiibo, Sandy's house has been redone. It now features furniture items from her Amiibo, and has a theme of a coffee shop. She owns green recolors of the Natural Bench and Natural Chair, a Natural Low Table, a Serving Cart, a Cacao Tree, and a Chalkboard Menu. The food items she owns are a Fancy Tea Set, an Afternoon-tea set, and a Cupcake. She does not initially own a stereo, but if the player gives her one, it will play K.K. March. Her wallpaper and flooring are the Modern Wood Wall and the Neutral Floor. Sandy's RV is identical to her house, and she shares her exterior design with Ellie's, Carrie's, Maddie's, Olive's and Stella's RVs.
In New Horizons, Sandy keeps the café theme. The upper half of her home is styled after a condiment station and lounge area. The condiment station is made up mostly of an oak ironwood kitchenette, on top of which sit a white cream and sugar tray, and an orange portable record player playing K.K. Soul. The lounge area consists of a cocoa tree, natural magazine rack with a sports magazine, red tea set, natural serving cart, hanging terrarium, cream double sofa, and resort magazine laid out on an oak ironwood low table. To the lower left of the house are a walnut grand piano and camel piano bench on a red carpet. To the lower right, a dark brown menu chalkboard, a navy blue simple kettle, and an open-frame kitchen. Sandy's wallpaper is the Blackboard Wall, and her flooring is the Rosewood Flooring.
