The Glee Spinner (たましいの石?, lit.: "Stone of Soul") is a treasure in Pikmin 2. It is actually a GameCube Control Stick. It is found in the third sublevel of the Dream Den, inside the body of a Spotty Bulbear. The player should defeat any Dwarf Bulbears and Careening Dirigibugs that may be in the way when transporting it to the Research Pod. An easy way to obtain it is to simply make the Spotty Bulbear fall down a hole in the level, which can be easily done by moving the leader so that the gap is between him and the Bulbear. Once the Bulbear falls through, the Glee Spinner will materialize nearby.


Olimar's journal

When I get near this captivating treasure, I can't stop myself from spinning it over and over again. I shouldn't spin such a valuable treasure, but it's so hard to have self-control. From now on, instead of actually spinning it, I'll imagine I'm doing it instead. Wow... This is so much fun!

Sales pitch

This produces a mysterious, shape-induced mental effect in all living creatures. You simply MUST rotate it! Spin, spin, spin, spin... What fun it must be!
