How to Find the Stardew Valley Strange Doll


Did you know that you can find an item called Stardew Valley Strange Doll when walking around the map? It is a rare and interesting thing, but it’s not always so easy to find. That’s why some players spend hours looking for it in various places.

In this guide, you will learn the best tips for finding the Strange Doll in this game. Of course, some luck will be needed, but there is always some useful information that can help along the way.

Let’s take a look at how you can start collecting these rare items.

How Many Strange Dolls Are There?

If you’re thinking that this will take forever, no need to be afraid. There are only two Stardew Valley strange dolls (yellow and green). You will need to find their particular locations, but yes, finding these rather small items will be quite a task. Especially if you don’t know where to dig.

Now that we know what we’re looking for, let’s take a look at how you can get your hands on the dolls in Stardew Valley.

Looking for Secret Notes

Yes, the main way to find these items is by finding the secret notes in Stardew Valley. Of course, it’s not going to be that easy without any additional steps.

First, you will need to find the magnifying glass. It will allow you to start finding secret notes all around Pelican Town and beyond. They can be quite anywhere, so be prepared to travel a lot! Of course, you can find various guide which will tell you where to find what exactly, but sometimes wandering around can make the game even more exciting.

If you want to be sure that you will find a note, start growing giant crops! They always give at least one secret note, so you can start working on your collection. If you haven’t managed to get your hands on giant crops, there are other ways as well.

Also, do some fishing, check around the map, check artifact spots. All these things and places have a possibility of having a secret note somewhere.

Stardew Valley Strange Doll Secret Notes

If you’re looking for the dolls, you will have to find the notes 17 and 18.

Secret note 17 will give you the green doll. Just go to the north of JojaMart and start digging on the most northern tile on the eastern part of the road. This will start your strange doll collection!

If you get your hands on secret note 18, you have a chance of finding the yellow doll. This one can be found in the Calico Desert. Don’t forget to have a hoe with you and just start digging the sand in the southwest of the beach in the desert. This shouldn’t take much time at all.

What Can You Do With a Stardew Valley Strange Doll?

Now that you have spent quite some time finding them, what can you do with these items? Other than selling for some gold, there are a few things you can do.

If you want to refresh your wardrobe, you can use the dolls to create new t-shirts (Wumpus and Bobo shirts).

You can also donate these dolls to the museum and help this place to become even more interesting. If you’re having issues with the donation and wondering “why can’t I donate the strange doll”, then there might be a simple explanation. Check if you haven’t already donated it to the curator, as you can only do that once in the game.

Of course, you can also gift them, but only Dwarf and Penny will thank you for the strange dolls. Other NPCs will dislike the gift, and this will make you lose friendship points with them. This might be an interesting item, but not everyone can and will appreciate it for what it is.

You might be better off just giving most of the characters a universally liked or loved gift and using the doll for other things!

Now you’re fully ready to find a Stardew Valley strange doll and start collecting all the secret notes in the game! Just choose wisely what you will do with them because your inventory might have a limit.
