Balloon presents can be seen drifting through town. They appear as a white present tied with a red bow, hanging from a balloon. These can be shot down with a slingshot and sometimes captured with a net or shovel (explained later).
Where to find balloon presentsEdit
More of a when. It happens whenever the time on the clock ends with a four. If your sound is on, you will hear the wind blowing, indicating that a balloon is nearby.
Catching a balloon present with a net or shovelEdit
If the player does not have a slingshot, there's still a way to knock the presents down from balloons. First the player should find a balloon. If it's drifting towards a cliff (depending on the layout of the town, there will be a cliff to the east or the west) he/she is in luck. Wait for the balloon to reach the cliff.
As it passes the cliff, the balloon will lower. The player should get within range of it with a net or shovel out, and use the net or shovel as if he/she was hitting a villager. The balloon should pop, and the present will drop to the beach below. If the player misses, he/she will have a moment or two to try again.
This strategy will not always work, as the balloon may be heading in the direction away from the cliff. If so, the player will have to wait and try again with a balloon heading the other way. ￼
After you pop a balloon with a present and not a slingshot attached then you can pick it up and open it but when you do you get either a piece of the balloon set or a random piece of furniture. You may even get one of the silver or golden slingshot.
