How To Meet Snowboy

Appears When Snow Piles Up


You can meet Snowboy by combining two large snowballs together on a snowy day. Note that snowballs won't appear if your island is not covered in snow!

Months Snowboy Appears

Roll The Snowball To Make It Larger


In order to encounter Snowboy, you'll need to roll a snowball on top of the snow to make it larger.

Snowball Breaks When It Hits A Tree

Carefully roll the snowball so that it won't hit a tree. If the snowball hits a tree or falls in the water, you'll have to find new snowball and roll again. In order to make new snowballs spawn, enter and exit a building.

Combine Two Snowballs


Roll 2 snowballs to a large size and combine them together to make Snowboy. In order to get rewards from Snowboy, you need to make two snowballs the perfect size. Read the section below on how to make the perfect Snowboy.

Snowboy Will Melt In Few Days


Sadly, Snowboy will melt in about 3 days. If you made perfect Snowboy, he will give you new Large Snowflake everyday until he melts away.

How To Make Perfect Snowboy

Make 2 Snowballs' Size Perfect

Click to Enlarge

In order to make a perfect Snowboy and get a reward from him, you'll need to make the two snowballs' sizes just right. The head should always be slightly smaller and the body should be maximum size. Refer the size of the snowballs above.

▲Snowboy will complain if the size is not right

How Do You Know If The Snowball Is Max Size

When you successfully make the snowball at the maximum size, your character will slow down when you start to push the snowball!

Crush Snowball To Start Over

If you overdo the rolling and make the snowball too big, crush it and make a new one spawn.

Reset The Software Before Saving

If you accidentally make imperfect Snowboy and don't want to wait till next day for new snowball to respawn, reset the game without saving.

You Can Make More Than 2 Snowboys

If you made an imperfect Snowboy by accident, you can try again on the next day and make another snowboy. Note that more than 2 Snowboys can exist in your island.

Reward You Can Get From Snowboy

As a reward for making a perfect Snowboy, you can get snow-related DIY recipes which use Large Snowflakes as a material.

I got a frozen partition

The snowballs don't spawn if there are visitors on the island, and they only spawn late in the day.

The rest of the recipes I got were: Frozen-treat set, Frozen counter, Frozen table, Frozen arch, Frozen pillar, Frozen sculpture, Frozen tree, Ice wall, and Snowperson head. Snowboy isn't giving me any more, so I think I have them all now.

KamaSupra 3

And given that they take three days to melt, ***uming you make a perfect one each day, the max large snowflakes you can collect per day would be 4.

KamaSupra 2

You get a large snowflake per perfect snowboy you have on your island, you have to talk to them once a day until they melt.

As far as rewards, so far I have gotten: Frozen Bed, Three-tiered snowperson, Frozen Chair, Frozen Partition, Frozen tree, Ice flooring, Ice Wand, and Snowflake wreath
