Jolly Redd is a new NPC in Animal Crossing New Horizons. He’s a fox, and he visits your island in order to sell artwork. However, he’s a sly one – many of the paintings and statues he sells are fake. Thankfully, there’s a way to tell which ones are real and which aren’t before spending your hard earned turnip money. If you’re wondering on which days Redd appears on your island, this guide will show you Jolly Redd’s spawn time in Animal Crossing New Horizons.
What day does Jolly Redd appear on your island?
It’s random. Like a lot of other vendors, Jolly Redd will appear on your island on random days. He’ll park his treasure trawler in the same spot every time, and it’ll be marked on the mini map, so you won’t have trouble checking if he’s there immediately. If he isn’t, and you feel a burning desire to buy some artwork, you can time travel until you get him to show up.
How to manipulate Jolly Redd’s spawn time
Since he appears randomly, you’ll want to exploit his presence as much as you can. You could just wait for him to appear again, like the developers intended you to, but where’s the fun in that? If you want it all and you want it now, you’ll first have to wait for him to appear naturally. When he does, buy what you want, then turn off “synchronise clock via internet” and time travel to tomorrow. After the game loads up again, go back to the settings and turn on “synchronise clock via internet”. It’ll turn the clock back, and Redd will be there once again. This time, his inventory will be different, and you’ll be able to buy new stuff again. You can keep doing this until you run out of money or art to buy.
