Hi, its Cerise here and this post is short because of two reasons, one, I am not getting very much material to post on and two, I have just realized how crazy the Animal Jam Community on Youtube has become and I am still digesting it. No, this is not a rant. It is just to tell you guys that tomorrow, Animal Jam will have an update that the center of it will be a new den. I will give you guys the link and it was on Instagram. You do not need an account to view it. Happy Hump Day!
Hey Jammers! Graciepopstar91 here! Today is August 30th, which is a very important day! Today is the day I will be announcing the winner(s) for my Commenting Contest that I started on August 9th 2016! (Click here to see the post) It took a while, but I finally counted out the comments. It had been a race between commenters Sarahkey8 and Swirlshine! But in the end, Sarahkey8 won with about 174 comments! Her prize is this Raccoon Hat!
Swirlshine came in close second with about 148 comments! She did and incredible job, so I wanted to give her a second place prize. Her prize is a Sapphire Ring!
And to keep all fair, the Sapphire Ring costs less gems then the Raccoon Hat because the Sapphire Ring is a second place prize.
Now, as you can see in the title, I am going to be starting another AJ contest! This time its a little bit different. Its going to be a Back-To-School-Fashion-Show-Contest! Heres how you enter:
Dress up your AJ Avatar with Back To School clothes, like Nerd Glasses, Backpacks, etc. Then comment below with your username, what animal your AJ Avatar is, and the name of your AJ Avatar. Entries are due by September 6th (one week from today), at 9:30 AM Pacific Timing.
How you vote in the Fashion Show:
On September 6th, Ill make a collage of all the animals in the fashion show. Then I'll post it up here on AJC, and in the comments, you will vote for the AJ Avatar you want out. And to keep everything fair, only I will know the usernames of these Jammers that enter. So to vote someone out, you will have to comment with the name of the Animal Jam Avatar. (Like Dancing Zanypet, Little Cooljammer, etc). Then Ill count up the votes, and whoever gets the most votes out, gets an X on their AJ Avatar in the collage, and is no longer in the contest next week.
You can only vote someone out once per round. And when you vote someone out, please use kind words only. No language, cruel humor, and no bullying.
Only enter ONE AJ Avatar into the contest.
If your in the contest, you can vote out other people. But remember, only vote out one person per round!
I hope you all have fun with this contest!
Heres this weeks Bible verse!
14 For this reason I kneel before the Father,15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name.16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being,17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love,18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Until next Tuesday, this is Graciepopstar91 signin' out!
Hey, Jammer's! CoolCat here with another post! And yes, It's Monday. Witch also means for a lot of people its back to school. But on Animal Jam it just means its time for another Rare Item Monday!
So todays rare is in the Medical Center again! Before I checked there, I checked Jam-Mart Clothing for the rare item Monday, and it was nowhere to be found! So I thought, oh great.... Then I checked Epic Wonders and it wasn't there either. Then I remembered last week, and checked the Medical Center and there it was!
So todays rare is the Rare Head Bandage. It is being sold in Kimbara Outback's Medical Center for 900 gems. That seems pretty high to me! Its also members only. The color scheme is also light purple with a dark purple paw print. I tried this item on before I bought it and I didn't really like how it looked. But that could just be the animal I used and the color. *I used a black and gray koala* If you make an outfit based on this rare I'm sure you can make a really cool outfit!
Even though I really didn't like this item I bought it anyways. I was curious to see if this rare had a low recycle value like last week, and it did! It only would only give 270 gems if you recycled it. The Medical Center rares don't seem to have a good return value, considering what they cost. I don't suggest buying this item in hopes of recycling it for quick gems when you need them.
I also want to thank Arctic for helping me post pictures! I sadly couldn't make it to the phone company last week. My mom had several other important things to do, but she told me she can take me this week! So by next Monday I should have it fixed. Thanks again, Arctic! :) And thank you everyone else for your patience!
Greetings Jammers, Arcticstar here! I've got a special sort of Jammer Sundae today, and so, it will only be the Jammer Sundae for this week (rather than both the Sundae and the post). So, without further hesitation, let's get going!
A few weeks ago, Swirlshine suggested that I did a Jammer Sundae based on funny things I had seen happening in Jamaa. This was a great idea, but I didn’t have a story to share… until now. May I present to you: A Meeting With the Princess of Jamaa (based off a true story - names, characters, and certain lines will be changed/added for both privacy and enhancing the story)
One day in Jamaa, Pouncing was in her den, chatting with Little. It was a peaceful, relaxing day, showing no signs of being odd or exciting (excluding Pouncing’s shenanigans, of course). Suddenly, a loud crash came from downstairs ~ somebody had broken down the door!
"What was that?!” Little cried
"It’s probably just a-"
Pouncing was interrupted mid-sentence by a loud, bossy voice, and the sound of footsteps coming up the stairs.
“I am the DJ Princess” Declared the voice from the other side of the room.
Standing in the doorway was a fox dressed in a confusing outfit that looked as though someone had tried to mash a DJ and a Princess costume together.
“ I am the DJ Princess” the fox repeated.
" I think we got it the first time, thanks” Pouncing stuttered.
“I’m sorry, but who exactly are you? You know, other than the DJ Princess?” Little asked dryly.
“I said I’m the DJ Princess” repeated the visitor, again.
“I don't know how I got this idea, but I think you may have mentioned that part already” Pouncing said nervously.
It didn’t look as though their “royal visit” was going to end anytime soon, so Little and Pouncing did their best to keep up their conversation. This was difficult as the fox took a seat the table and listened in as though this were completely normal for her.
“I really think that stores should go on sale more...” Little said, his voice trailing off.
The fox helped herself to one of the muffins on the table.
“Heh Heh, yeah..." Pouncing agreed uncomfortably.
Pouncing spread a large glob of frozen ketchup on a strawberry muffin. Little chuckled nervously as the “DJ princess” continued to stare at the two of them, as though waiting for them to serve her.
“Anyway, I’ve been wanting to buy this Amelia statue for a while and -”
Once again the 'Princess' interrupted.
“She’s my sister because I'm the princess of Jamaa.” She declared.
“I thought you were the DJ Princess though” said Pouncing, not understanding the logic.
“I’m both.” Stated the Princess, as if it were quite obvious.
Pouncing stopped trying to get mustard onto a pancake and stared, not knowing what to say.
Several more awkward minutes passed. Little got up to take a mental health break for himself. Pouncing's mouth hurt from trying too hard to smile politely.
“Alright this is getting too weird, this needs to stop.” Little spluttered, coming back in.
Little began pushing the strange fox toward the exit
"Really, truly appreciate the visit ma'am"
"But wouldn't you like to come visit my castle?"
"No, no thanks, I have been at faaaar too many castles lately and anything remotely fancy makes me cringe."
"Yes, yes, thank you. I'm certain, yes. Thanks your highness, I'll be seeing you around, thanks, good day, goodbye."
He heaved a sigh of relief and locked the broken door once he had successfully gotten rid of the odd guest.
“Sorry, but enough is enough” He said to Pouncing.
“She seemed nice!" Pouncing said, giggling.
Little took one look at Pouncing and simply sighed.
And that is the basic story, which I sincerely hope you guys enjoyed! Please tell me if you like this kind of Story Sundae every once in a while - I really like hearing what you guys have to say!
See you next week!

Today, I'll be talking about the magenta glitch! This new glitch has caused an uproar in Jamaa! The glitch essentially allowed you to purchase items that were colored the famous magenta color (which usually means "glitched"). Unfortunately, the ability to purchase these glitched items has since been patched, but you are still able to preview these glitched items on your animal!
You can watch this video by Skorm for detailed instructions on how to preform this glitch:
And here are some of the results that I got by doing this glitch!
Pretty nifty, eh? But as I said earlier, you can't buy these items, which is kind of a bummer. >.<
I'm sorry for the short post--I've been super busy this past week, and I'm afraid that my busy-ness will continue for the rest of August and the first week of September. I might not be able to post for the next 2 or 3 weeks, so of you don't see me around here in awhile that's why!
1) If you could only have one clothing item on AJ, what would it be?
Hmm.. I'd have to say orange pigtails. My main look always has them on!
2) Whats your favorite AJ feature? (Such as masterpieces, buddies, etc)
Buddies for sure! I do love masterpieces, but no item could replace a really good friendship.
3) What animal would you like to see on AJ?
Thats a hard one! Probably an aye aye, or a lemur. Although an extinct dodo bird may be cool... I cant decide!
4) AJHQ just granted you 100 diamonds. What do you spend them on?
First, I would get myself the tail in the Princess Armor set, then I'd get some big plushies, then give my friend items too!
5) If you could create your own world on AJ, what would it be?
Probably another beach, but this one is just surrounded by ocean, and the music in the world is calm, and their is palm trees everywhere. You can also lay out beach towels and try to spot dolphins and whales.
And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
Remember, we are all brothers and sisters in Christ!
Remember, God made YOU!
Until next Tuesday, this is Graciepopstar91 signin' off!
Hey, Jammer's! CoolCat here with another post! Today is Monday, and you all know what that means. Its time for another Rare Item Monday!
So I log on Animal Jam and go to Jam-Mart Clothing to see the rare. And its not there! I thought huh that's strange, its always there! So then I go to Epic Wonders and check there. And its not there either! So then I check Jam-Mart Furniture, then the Diamond Shop. And its not in any of those places either! Then I proceeded to check my phone to make sure it really was Monday, which it was. So then I decided to take a shot in the dark and check the Medical Center. And there it was! So after that long story of find the rare....
Todays Rare Item Monday is the Rare Arm Brace! The color scheme is tan and green. It is 850 gems and is members only. I'm not really a fan of this item. I like the original color better. But I'm sure it will come in handy for Medical Center role players!
I remember hearing throughout the game that if you bought one of the rares, and recycled it, you got more gems back then what you paid for it. So I decided to try it and see if it would work! So I bought one and went to recycle it. Then it only gave me 255 gems! I thought that was a rip off! I wasn't expecting it to be more then what I paid for, but I was at least expecting it to give me back at least 400 gems!
I would also like to say that my pictures and still not working and I'm very sorry! I sent Arctic an E-mail and asked for her help with pictures until I get it fixed. I will be heading to the phone company tomorrow to see if anything can be done to fix it. Thank you for your patience! :)
In all honesty, I feel awful today. I'm not feeling well, and I can't possibly write a good post in this state. I'm terribly sorry about this, and I don't wish to disappoint any of you, but I'll have to take the day off today. Don't worry, though! I'll be back next week with a proper post, so stay tuned!
Again, very sorry about this- I hope I'll feel better as soon as possible so I can get right back onto Animal Jam!
See you soon, Friends!
Feel free to contact me at email@example.com !
Well, it's me again. It's Penguin. The one and only Penguin. Today we have another post and there have been quite a few authors added to this blog, and I haven't welcomed them yet. I'd like to welcome Graciepopstar91, CoolCat and awesomepanda868. In fact, awesomepanda868 is one of my buddies, too, so it's nice to be working with her! Anyways, let's start the main part of today's post- the daily updates. Here is the new item.
Then, here is the Daily Explorer update.
Lastly, here are 3 unrealistic features that AJ animals can use. In real life, I don't think you'd find animals doing these following things.
Animals playing pool? Ha.
Animals using teleportation? Another ha.
And animals having an inventory of clothes- this calls for a third ha.
So, what do you guys think about the new set of Origami Items? Do you like them? Also, I know there are more unrealistic features, but can you spot them? Thanks for reading this post, I'll see you guys later.
Hey AJC followers! ^.^ It's Panda here (a.k.a. awesomepanda868 on Animal Jam), one of AJC's newest authors! I'll be posting on most Fridays, unless I get busy or something.
Before we get started on today's post, I'll tell you about myself in 5 words so we can get to know each other!
I am... fun, awkward, energetic, shy/quiet in real life (<-- Does that count as one word? Just go with it, K?) and creative. Boom! Super speedy-fast, am I right?
Ooh, I have an idea! How about you guys leave 5 words describing yourself down in the comments down below! That way we can all get to know each other! Plus, it's kinda fun to think of 5 words to describe yourself--I would know, 'cuz I just did it a few paragraphs ago. :P
I'm not quite sure if any new items were released today, because I forgot to log onto AJ yesterday. (Oops!) So, I can't really give you an accurate report on the new updates today... but do you know what I can do?
Give you some free-to-use graphics!
Pumaa made a ton of graphics and den overviews (that are currently posted on the Graphics page, FYI) awhile back, but since the page hasn't been updated in a bit, I decided I'd create some of my own!
I love making graphics, edits and den overviews, by the way, so this was super fun for me. I actually have a graphics blog, called Animal Jam Graphic Central (shameless plug, lol) where I post all of my graphics.
But enough rambling by moi--let's get into these graphics!
^ please give credit if you use this den overview ^
I hope you liked them! :) You can use them for YouTube thumbnails, channel arts, edits, blog headers etc. for free. (Yay for free-ness!)
Now, to add a bit more substance to this post, I'll be reviewing some of the newest Animal Jam updates and giving my thoughts on them. Yipee!
First, let's take a look at the new head feathers. I personally think this item isn't AJ's best work. It seems like a pretty obvious copy of the original head feather item, with only some slight pattern and color changes (plus the addition of another feather). For 3 diamonds, it seems like they perhaps should have changed up the item a bit more from the original? I don't know... what are your thoughts?
(Psst! Comment "OMG AN AARDVARK!" if you like my seal's #onfleek outfit in the picture above. Pretty snazzy outfit skills, eh? ;D)
Time to check out these nifty new pet bees! I'm pretty sure these came to Jamaa last year as well, which is pretty cool. I think these lil' buggers are so adorable and kawaii--don't you agree?
Now for my thoughts on the new pet trading feature. I think that this is a pretty cool features, and will sort of liven up of the pet feature of the game. People had sort of forgotten about pets for awhile, I think, and this new feature will probably make people notice and care about their pets a bit more now.
However, I have to ask--is it really ethical to be trading away your own animal for a new animal? Doesn't that sound kind of... I dunno... weird?
I'd personally never trade away any of my pets, but I'm sure that others will love this new feature!
Well, I hope you enjoyed that post! Remember to comment down below:
a five-word description of yourself
the secret message hidden in this post somewhere (OMG so mysterious!)
I loved making this post--lemme know what you'd like to see in future posts from moi! I promise to pay more attention to the updates so I can give you guys a proper updates post from now on. :P
Hey Jammers! Graciepopstar91 here with a late fill in post for Cerise! Today I was super busy watching my niece, and completely forgot to post! Since this is a late post, this post is going to be kinda short. Anyways, today Im going to be talking about some Sloth facts! Heeeere they are!
Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and that the Master you are serving is Christ.
Remember, God made YOU!
Until next Tuesday, this is Graciepopstar91 signin' out!
Hey Jammers! Graciepopstar91 here with this weeks post! Today, I wanted to talk about a subject that really needs to be talked about. Keeping your account safe. Scamming and hacking for some reason, seems to be happening a lot lately around Animal Jam. So I'm going to be talking about 2 tips to stay away from scams, and 1 tips to not get hacked! Here they are!
Trust-Trading: One of the most common scams, is Trust-Trading. Trust-Trading is when someone will stand in a township, and say: "Best trade wins my ____!" The blank space could be any high value item. The Trust-Trader will normally have a low value item on trade. Such as a necklace, bat glasses, etc. Sadly, people fall for this scam. Sometimes this will happen in dens, and people will lock their den after they get a trade they like. Its best to never trade these people, and not go to Trust-Trading events.
Borrowing Items: Sadly, this is a scam that got me. A girl whom I thought was my friend, wanted to "borrow" my pink Rare Bow And Arrows. I believe she traded me a clover blanket for my bow, and I accepted the trade. She ran off with my item! I cried. Thankfully, one of my buddies gave me their pink Rare Bow And Arrows. From that day on, I learned my lesson!
Hacking Prevention: Lots of people seem to be getting hacked lately. Sometimes people just get hacked for no reason! But sometimes, they will exchange passwords with a friend. Sometimes you may think you can trust that friend, but its really a bad choice. I recently read about someone getting hacked from sharing their password, and a friend recycling their items! Its always best just to tell your password to a trusted parent or guardian.
I hope these tips help you keep your account safe!
Heres todays Bible verse!
Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers. But they delight in the law of the LORD, meditating on it day and night.
Remember, God made YOU!
Tomorrow I'm filling in for Cerise, so you will see another post from me then!
Hey, Jammer's! CoolCat here with another post! And its time for another Rare Item Monday post! And today's Rare Item Monday is a Rare Guitar! It can be found in Jam-Mart Clothing for 950 gems. That seems pretty high for Jam-Mart clothing.. It's also members only. And the color scheme is mainly red and purple. I like this item! I don't love it, but I like it! My personal favorite musical instrument AJHQ has released was the Drums. For the past three weeks AJHQ has released three different musical instruments. Could this possibly be a sign that something new is to come with music on Animal Jam? Hmm.... And I wish I had better news, but posting pictures is still not working for me. But I do have some good news! I will be going to the phone company in the middle of this week too see if anything can be done. I will see if it worked when he is finished helping me. If it doesn't work I will contact Arctic later that day for help. Now, onto the next part of this post!
Last summer on my friends blog I did a summer challenge. That didn't work out to well! The goal was to get one million tickets before the end of summer. I only got to 250,000. So since summer is drawing to a close, I thought why not do it again! But with a smaller goal of course. So that's what I'm challenging all of you to do! I challenge all of you to get 75,000 tickets before the end of the summer carnival. Comment down below if you will be doing this!
It's me, the great and powerful...
Wait just a second! I forgot who I am. Oh wait, never mind. I remember now. I'm Penguin. And I was being sarcastic. I didn't really forget who I am - or did I? Nope, I'm just kidding. Anyways, last week I didn't get to post because I was on a little vacation with my family in a hotel. I had to spend time with them, and I didn't get the chance to be on my laptop. But now I am back and ready to post again! Let's begin the post. Here is the new item, found in Jam Mart Furniture:
It seems to me that AJHQ is releasing a set of Pirate themed items. What do you think?
Next, here is the Daily Explorer update.
The third thing I'd liek to talk about is the Popcorn Machine in the Sarepia Theater.
I think this popcorn machine should become a den item and still be available in the theater and be a den item. It would have the path the Claw Machine took. Understand what I mean?
Lastly, you all know about the Den Shop in Coral Canyons? Well, there used to be a different shop there called Coral Corner. I am going to show you the evolution of that area.
Back in 2011, the shop looked like this. It was called Coral Corner.
It sold items such as these.
And now, today, this shop is now called the Den Shop. It looks like this currently:
The shop currently sells dens.
So, what do you think about these shops? Do you wish the old one never left, or are you happy it sells dens now? Comment your opinion below!
Before I finish this post, I want to announce that I'm hosting a special party tomorrow in my den. It's for reaching 30,000 views on The Animal Jam Spring. I've been supported so much and I'm happy that all of you are my friends and view every blog I make posts for. I'd like to give back to you guys and thank you for supporting me so much! So, in celebration, I'm hosting a 30,000 views party tomorrow for the AJ Spring and everyone, including you, is invited. It will be at my den tomorrow; my username is penguin55544.
I hope to see you there! If you can't make it, however, it's okay. I'm just hoping everyone has fun there.
That's all for this post, I hope you enjoyed it! Once again, I'm terribly sorry for not posting last week. Anyways, I'll see you in my next post.
Hey guys, its Cerise here. Before I continue, I will be gone for the next 2 Wednesdays so unless I can get another author to publish my drafts on those days for me, there will be no posts. Ok, on to the show!
Let's talk about Greely's Hideout first. We all know that Greely is a different alpha then the rest of the others. For example, he likes the phantoms and admires them. So, in his den, there are a lot of phantom-inspired places like the pipes and the lava. However, if you find your way to the top, you can see Jamma Township on the very left and what seems to be the Phantom King's palace on the right.
In Township, it is starting to become morning and the sun is rising. However, in the palace, it is night and it looks all mysterious and dark. These two places with Greely's Hideout smack-dab in the middle isn't a coincidence. It shows Greely's character, being torn/neutral between two completely opposite sides. Interesting, right?
Now, let's take a look at Peck's den. We all know that she is a creative Alpha with a lot of drawing and maybe hyperness within her. Her den reflects that with the splattered paint and the bouncy drums. However, if you don't know, there is a "secret" lava part near the crystal cave. It is lava like and it resembles a dungeon.
Again, it reveals a part of Peck's character. I did some reading up on the Animal Jam Wiki and it said that Peck was a feisty and hot headed Alpha. Yet, from her appearance you can't tell that, which might bring us to the conclusion that the dungeon represents that part of her and it is hidden because that side of her is some what hidden as well.
So, I believe that the dens are living representation of each alpha. It is amazing how much detail Animal Jam has in it. That is all for today. Happy Hump Day!
Hey everyone! Graciepopstar91 here with another Tuesday post! This weeks post is going to be a little different, because I'm hosting a contest!
