Dead Rising 2 Achievements

Father of the Year

Give Katey every possible gift.    

Bring back the following items to her to obtain this achievement. This must be done in one playthrough.

  • Bag of Marbles
  • Beach Ball
  • Funny Painting – Only obtainable during side mission ‘Art Appreciation’
  • Giant Stuffed Bull
  • Giant Stuffed Donkey
  • Giant Stuffed Elephant
  • Giant Stuffed Rabbit
  • Robot Bear
  • Snowflake the Tiger – Only obtainable at the start of the game, see ‘The Skill to Survive’
  • Stick Pony
  • Water Gun

Make sure to examine Snowflake once you tamed him in order to ‘give’ it as a gift, so if you’re sure everything’s there besides the achievement, chances are you haven’t examined Snowflake yet.

1. Snowflake (see "Tame Snowflake" achievement)
2. Marbles - Palisade's Mall - Ultimate Playhouse
3. Beach Ball - Palisade's Mall - Beach Body Swim House
4. Water Gun - All Over
5. Pony Stick - Royal Flush Plaza - Children's Castle
6. Elephant - Royal Flush Plaza - Children's Castle
7. Bull - Royal Flush Plaza - Children's Castle
8. Donkey - Royal Flush Plaza (2nd floor) - Small Fry Duds
9. Rabbit - Palisade's Mall (2nd floor) - Kid's Choice Clothing
10. Bear - Royal Flush Plaza - Astonishing Illusions
11. Painting - Palisade's Mall - The Cleroux Collection

The stuffed animals are all heavy items, so you can only carry one at a time. Also, the painting can only be obtained when you save the art gallery guy. I easily obtained everything but the painting while waiting on case 3

Snowflake is one of the gifts you can give Katey? XD

I'll admit, you have to be one helluva father to give your child a tame tiger for a pet.

just work out which ones are stackable... this works out pretty well at the end becuase you get a bunch of extra pp for the gifts you give katey. :)

All the gifts can be found off the Royal Flush Plaza except Snowflake, the Water Gun and the Funny Painting!!

Stuffed Rabbit - Americana Casino, got to BBQ restaurant and jump across the lights to get a Zombrex stash and the Rabbit!!

Stuffed Bull - Upstairs in Children's Castle, store where you do the "Short Sighted" side mission!!

Stuffed Donkey - Upstairs in Small Fry Duds, which is next door to Children's Castle!!

Stuffed Elephant - Stylin' Toddlers, right next to the Americana Casino or Children's Castle!!

Robot Bear - Astonishing Illusions, next door to Stylin' Toddlers!!

Ball, Marbles, Stick Pony - All found in the same store. Ye Olde Toybox, which is downstairs near the Escalators!!

Seriously! What kind of a father gives his daughter a 'pet' tiger?! Even if it is apparently tame, this is a frickin' tiger we're talking about here! If the tiger went beserk and ripped her face off, it will be Chuck's own damn fault. What an idiot! Lol.

But #3 I did laugh so much at your comment. xD
