"Swiftly carries you and your bees back to the hive."
5 minutes

Whirligigs are inventory items added in the Beesmas 2021 update. Using one simply teleports the player and their bees back to their hive. It has a cooldown of 5 minutes.

Whirligigs have a limit of 100. Obtaining any while having more than 100 whirligigs will not add them to the player's inventory, unless they are obtained through quests or codes.

Attempting to use a whirligig without claiming a hive will prompt the message: "You must claim a hive to use a Whirligig."

Ways to Obtain

These methods are no longer possible:

  • As a reward from quests.
    • Bee Bear's Bringing On Beesmas (#1) - x5 Whirligigs.
    • Bee Bear's Very Merry Berries (#7) - x2 Whirligigs.
    • Bee Bear's By Golly, Get Jolly (#9) - x10 Whirligigs.
    • Bee Bear's Merry Mushroom Mania (#12) - x10 Whirligigs.
    • Bee Bear's Cub Buddy Beckoning (#15) - x5 Whirligigs.
  • In secret locations, such as inside the Beesmas Tree.
  • Opening certain Gift Boxes across the map:
    • Beige Gift Box gave 10 whirligigs and other items.

  • Using a whirligig during an Ant Challenge will teleport the player to the starting platform after teleporting to the hive, thus putting an end to the challenge.
  • Using a whirligig is one of the only ways to exit Gummy Bear's Lair other than being killed by Gummy Bear, talking to Gummy Bear with a present to give to him, leaving when having the Gummy Mask/Boots crafted, resetting, or rejoining the game.
  • This is also one of the ways to exit the White Tunnel other than defeating or being killed by Tunnel Bear, leaving and rejoining the game, and using the gray plate at the middle of the tunnel.
  • They are based on maple tree seeds (nicknamed whirligigs), which, when they fall, spin to make them travel further from the tree. This may have inspired the whirligig's mechanic of teleporting or "carrying" you back to your hive.
