Milkshakes + Headphones

Hey animals! There are two new items today. One sold in Epic Wonders, and the other sold in the April Fools party "food" shop.


Both are members only, but I'm really liking the milk shake hat. The April Fools clothing shop just seems like a "put food on your head" shop. XD


I really want to add to the wall of photos. Spring is beginning where I am and there are all sorts of insects and birds coming out. :)

A little notice: 1,000th comment contest entries will only be approved once the contest is done. ^^

That's all for now,
see you in Jamaa!

April Fools Party Walkthrough

It's two days until April 1st! Which means the April fools party is just around the corner–

Oh wait. It's already here!

You start out in the yard of a castle ignoring the laws of gravity.



Don't be fooled by the upside down table of milkshakes – those are cakes!


Yes, Happy Windyjammer. We are upside down.


Go around the corner to find the clothing shop, selling hamburgers, fries, huge chunks of cheese... You decide which one you want.



You can find the den shop around the corner from where you first enter.

Have a crazy time at the April Fools Party!

Don't Waste Diamonds on Kangaroos EVER AGAIN!

Here's something you should all know if you're looking to save diamonds:

you don't have to buy kangaroos with diamonds. Buy them with gems!



NEW NONMEM ITEM ALERT! – Cheese Hat?

Hey animals! From the header, yes, there is a new nonmember item in stores today! That store it is sold in is the April Fools party shop, and the item is... 

A cheese hat?


This doesn't really look like a hat. Just a chunk of cheese. Cheese for your head? Head cheese? 0_0

Nonmember Den Tricks – Serene Springtime Yard

New Item + Item Code!

Hey Jammers! I hope you're having a good morning/evening/afternoon/night depending on where you are. Although the news I have to share is news you're going to like no matter where you live! :)

I present to you a nonmember ocean item!


Cool, right?

Aaaand, a brand new item code!


I guess AJHQ changed their minds and phantoms really did have some trouble with Jamaa.

See you in Jamaa!

Odd Day in Jamaa

I just logged on today to see what was going on in Aldan, and I was a little surprised by this:


Ok, first of all, this is Aldan: the notoriously overpopulated trading and scamming server where everyone says "XD" a lot. 
What's wrong with the picture?
Only a few (compared to the normal group) animals are here, and not many people are talking. This may only have to do with the latest update, but still.

If things couldn't get any weird enough, I checked my mailbox and I got two Jam a Grams. A little abnormal, but then I read them and...



umm...


thank you?

See you tomorrow in Jamaa!

Mystical Orb + AJ Maintenance

Hi Jammers! The new item of today is sold in Jam Mart Furniture.


Correct me if I'm wrong, but was this not originally sold in the Leap Year Party? The items sold then were not supposed to come out again until another leap year in 2016. But already we have the lion plushies, this... what's next?

I'll tell you what's next! A D.E. entry from who other than AJHQ!


"...We're doing a little game maintenance to make room for all of our new Jammers and animals."

I really love how AJ is putting digital AJ art into each post. One thing that kept me playing AJ for two whole years was the great graphics that are unique and well done. ^_^

Anyway, what can be interpreted from this is that server or room capacity is being increased! This is great for everyone. Great for AJ because this game is getting so successful that they need to increase server capacity, and great for us because maybe after this maintenance... just maybe we can get into Jamaa Township in Aldan.

I'm going to put up a poll or two on the blog. I've been noticing a drop in viewers, so I want to know what you think I should post! :)

That's all for now,
see you in Jamaa!

Appondale Mystery!

Hey animals! I was at Appondale with a few friends (another mystery: why can't you say 'friend' in a Jam a Gram? Comment your theories!) and went over to the large tree. I clicked the base of it... but I couldn't climb up!

My brother was the first one I know of who discovered this. Click this link to his animal jam blog for more details!



That's all for right now,
see you in Jamaa!

RIM – Rare Icy Shark Fin!

Hey animals! Today is Monday, which means a rare item is for sale today only!

... And it's your job to find it.


I'm really liking what AJ is doing, putting a fact after each RIM. Mostly since the nature facts have mysteriously disappeared a while ago.

I'm assuming these are nonmember land items, so yaaaay!

Have a jamtastic week,

Nonmember Outfit Ideas – Happy Springtime!

After a long, chilly winter, springtime is finally here in Jamaa! Flowers are blooming and the ladybugs have returned to the township. 


Spring is all about a colorful awakening after months of grey. The grey of winter skies can get to us, so when the flowers bloom, you can even feel the color as well as feel your spring allergies creeping up on you! X)

I recently cleaned up the items around my account, and by cleaning up I mean recycling pretty much everything. I do this once things I don't want pile up in my inventory. I send my few rares to good friends and recycle everything else. It's almost like making a new account without all of the hassle and explanations!

For these nonmember outfit ideas, I don't use many items, and the items I do use are inexpensive, non colored, and nonmember. What REALLY makes your animal special is colors! And since Springtime is all about colors, what better way to start than to change up your animal's coloring a bit?

Feel free to use any of these on your wolves, horses, rhinos, or any other animal without credit. ^_^

I even made up cutesy names for each of them. X)


"April showers bring May flowers"


"Driftwood"


"Brine"


"Dewdrop grass"


"Golden lilac"


"Lotus blossom"


"Corn"


"Sunny blue sky"


What's your favorite? ^^

Jam on!

Search for Greely: Screenshots

Here are some screenshots from the new adventure that my brother (who is a member) took.





Did Greely betray Jamaa? Or is there a misunderstanding?
Find out in The Search For Greely!

New Item – Sailor Hats!

Hey animals! The new item of today is sold under the sea in Bahari Bargains.


Of course, this picture isn't mine because I don't have a membership nor do I have enough gems for an underwater animal.

Learn about octopi on the D.E.!


Thats all for now,
see you in Jamaa!

Quick Update!

Hey animals! During this biweekly update, the lucky party decorations have been swept from Jamaa, bringing a small– but fun –update.

Jamaa Journal







Update Summary





Just a simple four paged Jamaa Journal. More attention is drawn to pandas becoming (temporarily?) endangered, which from what I'm seeing isn't raising much concern among others. Anyway, banners are set up around Jamaa with quick facts about endangered animals for you to learn. I dare you to find all of them! ;)

The new adventure, The Search for Greely is out for all members of Animal Jam. Did Greely survive the volcanic eruption of phantom evil? Only you can find out!

With March drawing to a hopefully green and flowering close, the April Fools party is next in line for Jamaa Celebrations. Prepare for new items, upside down castles, and loads of fun!

Extras

Just some quick news about the blog...

  • I'm sorry I skipped this months Den of the Month. I was only getting one entry per month, so I assumed people just weren't interested. Buddy of the Month will resume in April.
  • Berry the Koala updates once a month! You can read the latest entry from the left side bar.


Oh, I almost forgot! Happy first day of spring! It's been cold, so I'm happy that at least in Jamaa it can be warm and sunny. ^^

Have a sunny, green weekend!

Pirate Chest, How Long Were You Gone?

Hey animals! Try to guess what the new item of today is. I'll give you a few hints:

  1. No one notices it's absence.
  2. You just can't get it to open up to you!
Ok, guess.

...

You guessed pirate chest, right?

 Cheater! You read the header! (⋋▂⋌)

...

...Oh, you say you didn't? Well I'm watching you... (¬_¬) 
*whispers quietly from afar* liar...

Okay, now I'll ACTUALLY get to the item.


The new item of today is the pirate chest. It isn't really popular, and no one really openly admits to liking it, but it's in almost every nonmember den. It's a necessity to us, like toothpaste.

At the same time, it's not popular because– I'll word it better. It's not in demand because pretty much no one notices it's absence. Even when it's gone, it's still there. There's no reason to bring this old chunk of wood into your fancy member den, so why bother going all the way to the chamber of knowledge to see and buy it in person? 

The pirate chest is always there, in our hearts...


That's all for now, Jammers,
see you in Jamaa!

Fixing an Eagle's Broken Wing

Hey jammers! I can't find the new item today, but I have found a whole load of clearance items. 




Pick up your favorites while you still can!

On the Daily Explorer, a new video post was made showing people fixing a golden eagle's broken wing.


"These efforts are funded by you memberships. Thank you for helping to make this possible." :)

That's all for now,
have a wonderful wednesday!

RIM – Rare Tuxedo!

Hey animals! I hope you're having a jamtastic monday. I know I'm not!

Today is monday, which means that a new, rare, unreasonably expensive item is in stores... for only one day! 
So you know what that means...
Better hurry up and spend those 1,000 gems before the sun sets!

Modeling this lucky tuxedo is a stunning lavender snow leopard.
Pick this up at Jam Mart Clothing today!

That's all for now,
have a super lucky monday!

Rain Clouds Turned Nonmember?

I was at the diamond shop and saw something peculiar...


The rain clouds and the snow clouds appear to have turned nonmember!

I hope it isn't just a glitch this time. *~*
