Did the Galagoogoo sit in thorn bushes once too often? Even now, scientists are coming to blows to decide if this animal is nocturnal because it has huge eyes or if it grew huge eyes because it couldn't get up in the day. The Galagoogoo is a reclusive pinata that can only be encountered at night in story mode.


Appear Requirements

Visit Requirements

Resident requirements

Note: A Watchling works well to fulfill this requirement.

Romance Requirements

  • Has eaten 4 orchids
  • Have a Chewnicorn resident in the garden
  • Have a Galagoogoo house in the garden (I don't recommend breeding them due to how over populated the garden can become in just for fun mode)
Species variants for the Galagoogoo

Feeding it a sunflower changes its color to light yellow.
Feeding it a piece of bread changes its color to light purple.
Feeding it poison ivy changes its color to green.

Note: Each of the three color variants has a base value of only 100 coins.

Other Information

With a body shape suspiciously like a Pikachu, the Galagoogoo has eyes that border on serial-killer crazy. Kinda creepy, but very valuable; you won’t see one until you’ve had the garden a long while.

An in-game rumor claims that Galagoogoos like sunglasses and may allow them to be awake in the daytime. Shoes may help the Galagoogoo thrive in daylight.

Galagoogoos can climb trees. To get them down, tap the tree.

Galagoogoos sleep with one eye open when at full candiosity.

Hint: The Galagoogoo won't reside until you have a helper, and they won't even visit until you have a moon-on-a-stick. So get a helper, prepare your Mothdrops and Tulips, and THEN put a moon-on-a-stick in the garden. They are easily obtainable in TIP just for fun mode. Once you plant a tulip, it should appear. Galagoogoos like tulip flowerheads and orchids, but any other flowerhead will lower their candiosity. You must not feed them milk, honey, or any other Cost-o-lot foods. Such as bread. Unless you wish to unlock the purple variant.

Galagoogoo Uses

It can be used to fulfill the Roario romance requirement "has eaten a pinata worth 4500 coins."

Species Conflicts

They don't seem to like lickatoads, they will engage in combat if you tap the Galagoogoo with a shovel 3 times.


Commonly asked questions
When I went to sell my Galagoogoo, it's only worth 100 coins. Anyone got any ideas why?Some variants (Galagoogoos included) are worth less than their non-variant versions. View thread

I've been trying to get a Galagoogoo to become a resident, but it won't stick around.Because it's a high-level pinata, it might take an extra visit or two to get one to have eaten everything it needs, to reside. Also, it's important to keep in mind that you won't necessarily get the exact same Galagoogoo visiting, the next time one shows up.

First, make sure you have far more than 16 Tulips or 8 Mothdrops in your garden, so it doesn't leave early, after eating one or two.

Next, there's one thing you can do to help it along. Once it starts eating something, you can knock off some tulip flowerheads, or break open a Mothdrop, and leave the flowerheads/Life Candy near where it's eating. This will help save time, as the Galagoogoo only lingers until dusk. If you do it quickly enough, the Galagoogoo will gobble up what you're leaving for it, instead of wandering around. Make sure to keep the [Watchling] away from the Galagoogoo or it will be scared away.
