In Animal Crossing: Wild World (ACWW), you can receive letters, with gifts 
attached, from Nintendo!  To get them, you must enable downloads using the 
Telephone in your attic bedroom.  Connect to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection (WFC) by 
either opening your Gate or attempting to visit another town.  If you connect 
during the time period that the letter is being distributed, it will appear in 
your mailbox.

The following lists the beginning date of distribution, the gift attached, the 
name of the stationery used, and a transcript of the text for each of the WFC 
letters distributed so far.

This first WFC letter was reported by some of the IGN ACWW Contest winners, who 
received copies of ACWW about a week prior to its North American release date.

15, 2005.

I hope you are enjoying
your Nintendo DS. Please

********** Date:  January 26, 2006
Gift:  glitched Red Tulips
Stationery:  Butterfly Paper

"Dear [name],






From Nintendo"

This WFC letter was accidentally available only for several hours on January 26,
2006.  It was the result of a temporary internal error with the communication 
tool used to upload the letters onto the network.  The Red Tulips could be 
planted anywhere in town (including plazas and bridges), creating a permanent 
spot where anything else could be planted or buried.  Also, the Red Tulips 
could be dropped in your house, creating a permanently unusable spot.

A notice in Nintendo Power Magazine said to look for a WFC letter on October 20,
2006, with a very rare gift.  Instead, the letter above was distributed, 
obviously a week late because the Acorn Festival ended earlier in the month.  
The WFC letter with the "rare" gift never arrived.

Nothing livens up a house
like a shiny gold trophy.

One animal's trash is
another's treasure, so

The Flea Market does not occur for another two weeks, so it is not clear why 
Nintendo of America would release this letter so early.
