    Dead Rising 2 Logo   A zombie apocalypse is rough on anyone, but it especially plagues the psyche of an innocent little girl. Chuck Greene has to take his daughter Katey's mind off the outbreak somehow; what better than a cavalcade of extravagant gifts? It's not entirely without self-serving gain however, as delivering gifts to Katey earns Chuck PP rewards of 10,000 points or greater. Even better, securing all 11 Dead Rising 2 gifts for Katey unlocks the Father Of The Year achievement. Fortune City is a big place; luckily our guide is here to show you where and when all the gifts are obtainable.

    Dead Rising 2: Gifts for Katey List

    • Robot BearChuck & Katey  
      Location: Royal Flush Plaza 1st Floor - Astonishing Illusions
      Description: An animinatronic bear that is found in a store right across from the safe house. It is a very large item that cannot be held in Chuck's inventory, so you'll have to hike this item back to Katey while holding it.
    • Bag of Marbles
      Location: Royal Flush Plaza 1st Floor - Ye Olde Toybox
      Description: Ye Olde Toybox is a toy store found near the entrance to Slot Ranch Casino. The Bag of Marbles is found on the counter there, and is small enough to be carried in Chuck's inventory.
    • Beach Ball
      Location: Royal Flush Plaza 1st Floor - Ye Olde Toybox
      Description: The ball can be found right next to the counter where you found the Bag of Marbles. It is also small enough to be stowed.
    • Stick Pony
      Location: Royal Flush Plaza 1st Floor - Ye Olde Toybox
      Description: A display of Stick Ponies is found against the wall opposite the counter. This item is also able to be carried in Chuck's inventory, so all three gifts found in Ye Olde Toybox can be delivered to Katey in one trip.
    • Giant Stuffed Elephant
      Location: Royal Flush Plaza 1st Floor - Stylin' Toddlers
      Description: This elephant is too big to be stowed and must be held.
    • Giant Stuffed Donkey
      Location: Royal Flush Plaza 2nd Floor - Small Fry Duds
      Description: The donkey is too large to be carried in Chuck's inventory.
    • Giant Stuffed Bull
      Location: Royal Flush Plaza 2nd Floor - Children's Castle
      Description: Break the window in front of the shop to get to the bull. The Giant Stuffed Bull is too big to be stowed away.
    • Water Gun
      Location: Platinum Strip - Moe's Maginations
      Description: This gun is small enough to be stowed, so I recommend nabbing this and the Giant Stuffed Rabbit in the same trip.
    • Giant Stuffed Rabbit
      Location: Platinum Strip - Moe's Maginations
      Description: Must be carried back to the safe house.
    • Funny Painting
      Location: Palisades Mall - The Cleroux Collection
      Description: Only obtainable during the "Art Appreciation" case that occurs during Day 3, around 11 a.m. in-game time. A distraught painter will want you to buy it from him for $3,000.
    • Snowflake
      Location: Yucatan Casino
      Description: During Day 1, head to Yucatan Casino to encounter the psychopath Ted. Once Ted is defeated, his pet tiger named Snowflake can be tamed by feeding it three steaks. After taming Snowflake, lead the tiger back to the safe house. Once there, examine Snowflake to give it to Katey.

    Congratulations on collecting all Dead Rising 2 gifts and earning the Father Of The Year achievement!
