    [1.00] Introduction
    Hello all you people reading my guide; this is the first guide I have ever 
    written, so I’d love to have anybody at all to help me out in any way possible,
    especially FAQ-writing tips. Please leave a name of some sort like a GameFAQs 
    username so that I can give you credit! ^_^
    If you are reading this FAQ, it is probably winter in your town, or maybe 
    you’re just curious about the Snowmen. I will gather as much information into 
    this FAQ as possible to help you build the perfect Snowman every time you try.
    One more thing. I'd really like some ASCII Art of a Snowman. If you can make 
    one, send it to me! If I use it, I'll give full credit.
    [2.00] Table of Contents
    In this FAQ, I made it so that you can use a “QuickSearch” First, use the 
    CTRL+F command on the keyboard. This will open a search box. It is on the 
    bottom of your window if you are using the FireFox browser. After getting the

    [4.00] Contact Information
    Make sure to read ALL of this section before contacting me. Your message could
    be deleted when it could’ve been something to contribute.
    You can contact me at doublezer0aym@hotmail.com
    open messages without titles. They need a title like “I found an error in your 
    FAQ!” or “FAQ Contribution!” They will be deleted on sight if I see no title. 
    Also, if I know you by a different alias (i.e. GameFAQs username), include that 
    in your message.
    [4.01] You may contact me to:
    1. contribute to the FAQ. Know something I don’t? Tell me! I’ll give credit to 
    you too!
    2. tell me of any errors. I’m one of those guys who absolutely HATE making 
    errors no matter how minor they may be, so tell me so that I can correct it as 
    soon as possible. Credit is awarded for this too.
    3. comment on the FAQ. If you have anything to say about the FAQ, I’d be happy 
    to hear about it. Constructional criticism is accepted too.
    [4.02] You may NOT contact me to:
    1. spam. I hate spam and junk mail. Don’t even joke about it. If the title 
    makes it seem like junk mail(i.e. “Your FAQ SUCKS!!”), I’ll delete the message. 
    If the first few sentences make it seem like junk mail, it will also be deleted 
    without being completely read.
    2. send viruses/Trojans. My ThunderBird e-mail application can detect them, but 
    I really would prefer if you don’t do it at all. It means fewer e-mails to 
    delete. It’d also suck if ThunderBird missed one. It’d be a hassle to remove.
    3. advertisements to your website, message board, or for your products. Sorry, 
    not interested. It will be deleted on sight.
    4. flame me or start arguments. If you want to argue or debate about something,
    then I am sorry. I have no time to spend on you for that.
    5. give false information. I don’t care if it was an accident or on purpose. 
    Either way, you will be blocked because I need you to be 100% sure on your 
    information. If you are not 100% sure, at least tell me that so that I can test 
    it out. Don’t tell me to test obviously bogus information though. You’ll get 
    blocked for that.
    6. ask if you could visit my town. The only people I let visit my town through 
    WiFi are the people on this forum: 
    Join ONLY if you have read and agreed to their rules.
    [5.00] Frequently Asked Questions
    [5.01] How do I make a Snowman? 
    First, you need to find the two snowballs in your town. When you push these 
    two together, they will form a Snowman. When you start rolling, you'll just be
    kicking it around for a bit. Roll a snowball in snow to make it larger, and 
    roll it in dirt to make it smaller. As it gets larger, the snowball will go 
    onto the second stage where you can actually push and guide the snowball. It 
    is important to know that only snowballs in the second stage can be used to 
    make a Snowman. Many people also have trouble because of trees in the way 
    breaking stage one snowballs and blocking large snowballs, so you may want 
    to prepare for the snow season by clearing out some trees. Making one 
    correctly will cause the Snowman to send you a rare gift from the Snowman 
    Series! Read further down for details on how to make it perfect.
    [5.02] I destroyed/lost a snowball! What do I do? 
    No worries. Just enter and exit a building to reset the snowball(s) you lost. 
    They might not be in the same place, so you'll have to go look again. Also,
    if you seriously cannot find the other snowball, then you can save, reset, 
    and come back to look again.
    [5.03] How many Snowmen can I make a day? 
    You can make ONE Snowman a day, not one for each character. Also, a day is the 
    time from 6:00 AM and 5:59 AM the next day. Snowballs will respawn at 6:00 AM.
    [5.04] Where can I make a Snowman? 
    You can make a Snowman anywhere you want outside and still get the present if 
    he is perfect as long as you're not trying to build one on the cement such as 
    in front of the stores, town hall, the bridges, and so on. Also, making one on 
    top of a pattern will erase that pattern, making one on top of a flower will 
    kill it, and making it too close to solid objects will make it disappear once 
    you go in and out of a building.
    [5.05] What makes a Snowman "perfect"?
    Size does not matter when making a Snowman, only proportion. Here are some 
    examples of me standing next to my "perfect" Snowmen:
    That first Snowman is quite large, but it doesn't need to be that big since 
    only proportion counts. Just make the head slightly smaller(about 3/4) of the 
    body. Also, many suggest that rolling the body snowball until it seems it won't 
    get any bigger makes things easier. After that, you would just make the second 
    snowball slightly smaller than the body like you'd usually do. Another method 
    is to make the body snowball as large as your head and then roll the head 
    snowball until you start rolling with your hands and then a little more. One 
    more method is to roll a snowball until it just reaches guidable size. At this 
    point, just roll the other snowball slightly larger. I prefer the "body as 
    large as head" or "just reached guidable size" methods, but you can do what 
    works for you.
    Also, a request from Eyedunno1 was for me to also take a picture of what 
    snowballs looked like before completion. You can compare the two sizes in this 
    picture I took:
    [5.06] My Snowman disappeared!! 
    If your Snowman disappears after you enter and exit a building, you most likely 
    made the Snowman too close to a building, tree, rock, river, bridge and so on. 
    Don't worry. If you built the Snowman right, he will still give you the present.
    [5.07] How long do the Snowmen stay? 
    They'll stay a couple of days (three to four on average) and melt a bit each 
    [5.08] What are the Snowman items? 
    1. Snowman Bed
    2. Snowman Dresser
    3. Snowman Wardrobe
    4. Snowman Chair
    5. Snowman Sofa
    6. Snowman Table
    7. Snowman Fridge
    8. Snowman TV
    9. Snowman Clock
    10. Snowman Lamp
    11. Snowman
    12. Snowman Carpet
    13. Snowman Wall 
    [5.09] When will I be getting my present? 
    You will receive your present at 9:00 AM if you built the Snowman between 
    5:00 PM and 8:59 AM. You will receive your present at 5:00 PM if you built the 
    Snowman between 9:00 AM and 4:59 PM. Also, you can force your mail by 
    having someone come over your town. It does matter if it is DS to DS or Wifi.
    If anyone comes into your town, your incoming mail will be forced into your 
    [5.10] Will I get duplicates before completing the set? 
    You will only start getting duplicates once all the Snowman items have been put 
    into your catalog. However, there have been reports of people not getting the 
    whole set in the catalog before duplicates. These can either just be rumours 
    or actual glitches. However, the majority of people catalog all items first.
    I have an email that may explain this glitch sent to me by someone named Ryan 
    Turowski. Here's the part of his email on the topic:
    "So, it seems when you complete two snowmen within a given mailing cycle 
    (between 5 PM and 9 AM the next day), the Snowman will send two of the same 
    item. For instance, I completed a snowman on 1/22 at approximately 8 PM. Then, 
    early this morning (8 AM or so) I completed the day's snowman. I checked my 
    mail after it arrived at 9 AM, and I had two Snowman letters, both containing 
    clocks. It could be a fluke, but that may explain some of the rumors. That 
    doesn't explain non-consecutive duplicates, but that's what happened to me."
    I would like to confirm whether this is the reason or not. When winter comes 
    again, I want as many people as possible to use a character who does not have 
    any Snowmen items cataloged to make snowmen. Email me your results. If I do not
    get any emails about non-consecutive duplicates, then I will confirm this as the
    reason why people have been getting duplicates.
    [5.11] When will snowballs start/stop appearing? 
    Snowballs appear and disappear with the snow. These days are from 
    December 11th to February 24th.
    [5.12] My Snowman keeps asking for a Snowlady? How do I make one? 
    You can’t make a Snowlady… That’s just some dialogue they put in to make it 
    interesting. You can’t actually make a Snowlady.
    [5.13] How do I make more than 2 sections on a Snowman?
    You can't. You can only make 2 sections: a body and a head.
    [5.14] Where can I find dung beetles? 
    A little off-topic, but it gets asked a lot too. Find a moving snowball, and 
    you'll know you've found the dung beetle. According to Liquefy's FAQ, their 
    times are 5pm to 8am, so you might want to make your Snowman a little later. 
    Just enter and exit buildings until you've found one. Also, this insect won't 
    appear when the gate is open.
    [5.15] My question isn't in this FAQ. 
    Just ask me. Check my contact info to know how. This FAQ is made of questions 
    asked by several people, so ask so I can add it to the next version. 
    I'll probably add the question to the FAQ and give credit for it.
    [5.16] You haven't updated in forever! What's up with that?
    I have a life too and can be quite lazy at times. ~_~
    Just wait. Updates will be made more often when Snowmen are in-season.

    And my face! Oh, this face
    is a true work of art! You,
    little flake, are a genius!
    I shall hereby dub thee...
    "the Snowmaster"!

    me together like that.
    It seems like I've been
    waiting in this brutal
    winter cold forever!
    Just waiting and waiting for
    a nice kid like you to come
    along and finish me.
    I didn't know what was
    gonna come first...
    You or spring!
    I felt like one of them
    hamsters in a wheel! Just
    rolling in place...
    Aw, but seriously! I'm real
    happy you came along
    I'm... I'm... I'm...
    Oh, rhapsodic, glorious day!
    This color!
    This shine!

    [7.00] Imperfect Snowman Phrases
    These are all the phrases that an imperfect Snowman will say that I have gotten
    so far. Each line is shown as one line as the Snowman says it.
    Huh? What in the...
    How did this happen?
    Hey, look, I'm thankful that
    you built me and all, but...
    Boy, do I look goofy!
    There's no way some nice
    Snowlady will ever date
    me now!
    What?! What happened?! By
    the frosty beard of Old Man
    Winter, LOOK AT ME!
    I don't think I could make a
    shape like this if I TRIED!
    Does it even have a name?
    Squarcle? Rectanglyuck?
    You musta really wanted to
    mess me up, kid.
    Bah! I knew I shoulda fallen
    in the next town over...
    Happy Snowman Day!
    Ho Ho Ho
    Yes, today is an auspicious
    occasion indeed...
    It's my birthday!

    mor attention to my
    overall shape and balance,
    it would be the happiest
    birthday ever...Oh well!
    I'm alive, right?
    Yep, I'm just happy to be here!
    Thanks again, kid!
    Phew! Aw, hey! Thanks so
    much for building me!

    my current feelings in one
    word, it would be...
    Sums it up perfectly.
    I look ridiculous.
    Oh no! ... OH NO! Look at me!
    I'm all lumpy and weird!
    But like my pappy used to
    say, a snowman can't choose
    his builder!
    This is my fate, and I'll
    have to steel myself and
    accept it! Sigh.
    Um… kid… you sort of goofed me up…
    Oh, well. Maybe I can still get a 
    nice snowlady to date me. Thanks, kid.
