Jump to: navigation, search
The children system in Animal Parade is like no other Harvest Moon we've seen before! Not only can you have TWO children, you can customize each one's personality to fit your liking, have two girls, boys, or a combo of both.

Though it may seem completely random at first, there is a method to getting your perfect child.

Requirements For Having Children

  • Must be married
  • Must have house upgraded to level 3 or above
  • Must agree to having a child when your spouse prompts you to have children

Once you've gotten you spouse to 14 hearts (15 for the witch and wizard, and 16 for the King or Goddess) They will ask you if you want to have a child. A short while after this your spouse will alert you of their pregnancy. You will be able to choose if your child will be a girl or a boy, but your spouse will also have a preference to which gender child they want to have! You can have two of the same gender of children, or you can choose to have one of each. The older brother, older sister, younger brother, and younger sister all have very distinct appearances. Example using Jin's children:

In short, you can choose two of these types of graphics to be your children. The first two are the older set, and the last two are the younger set. You can choose one of each to compile your family.

Though the child's hair style and face will be exactly the same no matter who you marry, their hair and eye color will change depending on your spouse (Example: Selena's children will all have red hair and magenta eyes). For the collection of the children images pertaining to spouses, please find the section below.

Personality Types

There are four possible personality types for children in the game. They are as follows:

Romanticist: A carefree child full of imagination and dreams. Will often place musical notes, hearts and stars in their conversation towards you. These kids are good at milking, watering and foraging.

Hot-Blooded: This child is the most energetic of the bunch. They are spunky and full of life. The Hot-blooded child will be most skilled at weeding, brushing, and foraging.

Shy: Shy children and quiet and reserved. Children who are shy will always be good at milking, collecting eggs and silk, and fishing

Studious: The studious type of child will be always ready to learn. They are serious about their goals in life. Studious kids excel at watering, foraging and harvesting.


You can attach any one of these personality types to any sort of child, younger or older, but there is a catch. Each spouse only allows for three out of the four types of personality types to be chosen. For example, Candace cannot have a hot-blooded child, and Calvin can only have the hot-blooded, studious or romanticist types.

Choosing Your Child's Personality

The personality of each of your children is determined with four questions your spouse will pose to you as your child grows from newborn to toddler to their full-grown form. The first question occurs at birth, and then there are questions every two weeks (14 days) when your child crawls, walks, and talks for the first time. Two weeks after the final question, your child will be full grown.

Here are the questions:

#1 - Question at Birth:

How to raise the Child?

1st Option: Energetic

2nd Option: Gentle


#2 - Question at Crawling:

What Do You Think [will the baby start talking soon]?

1st Option: It's a smart baby

2nd Option: There's no need to rush


#3 - Question at Walking:

How should kids be raised?

1st Option: They should be diligent

2nd Option: They should be carefree


#4 - Question at Talking:

What will we talk about?

1st Option: About our passions

2nd Option: About our dreams


Now, the formula changes for each spouse, so here is a list of which options to choose for getting the child of your choice depending on who you married. The options are presented in the order in which the questions are asked, so for example "1st, 2nd, whichever, 2nd" means answer the #1 question with the first option, the #2 question with the second option, the #3 question with whichever, and the #4 question with the second option.
