Another Glitched Ring!? + Peculiar Plushies

Hi there, and welcome to the Animal Jam Whip!

In today's post, I will be highlighting, featuring, and discussing a couple of unusual items that have popped up recently, with the first one being a possible other form of ''glitched ring''.

If you are unfamiliar with glitched rings, click here (but I am sure the majority of you know what I am talking about).

There are two glitched rings currently in existence - at least, up until now. Several Jammers have spotted what could possibly be a third variant of the glitched ring. It looks extremely similar to the item referred to as a "first" glitched ring (the one that is blue and sea green), except the color of the gem on the ring is slightly off.

In this picture, the new variant is on the left, and the real first glitched ring is on the right. The color of the ring on the left is a bit more of a grassy green than a sea green, if that makes any sense.

No one really knows for sure how this new glitched ring came to be, but a lot of Jammers assume it was hacked into the game. Let me know your thoughts in the comments.

Moving onto the second part of the post - peculiar plushies!

This Jammer, beansy9, was spotted a few days ago in what I believe is a Portugese server with two never-before-seen plushies on their trade list. One seems to be a big cat of some sort, and the other is either a red panda or a raccoon. Most people believe these plushies are promo items. Another thing to notice is the fact that Beansy is wearing magenta phantom armor. While there are more than enough magenta-glitched items in the game, it is safe to say that the magenta phantom armor Beansy is wearing is the first of its kind.

What's interesting about Beansy is this...

Beansy appears to be banned, yet his player card says that he's online! A bit fishy, isn't it?

That's all I've got for you today. Remember to comment your thoughts, opinions, and ideas on these strange items, and I'll see y'all later! Bye!

The Blinded Masterpiece Challenge

Hello Jammers! Welcome back to the Animal Jam Whip!

Recently I came up with a quick and fun challenge that I call "The Blinded Masterpiece Challenge". Here's how it works.

You must draw at least five masterpieces with your eyes closed or blindfolded - whichever method works for you. You may only open your eyes to switch colors, or you can have a friend change the colors for you. You can use a random noun generator online to choose which things you are going to draw. You could even turn your drawings into fully-fledged masterpieces by actually purchasing and turning them into an item.

I participated in this challenge, and this was the result:

1. Freedom

2. Music

3. Lake

4. Phone

5. Insect

I thought the music one was half decent, but the other four... not so much. Haha!

Feel free to try this challenge out, and if you do, I would love to see what how masterpieces turn out. Post the pictures on your blog, email the pictures to me, or even upload them to a site like Imgur and comment the link.

Have fun, Jammers!

The Jammer Central

Hey Jammers! Get ready for a little blast to the past.

JammerCentralBoardToday's post is going to be all about the Jammer Central. You know, the bulletin board in the center of Jamaa Township? That Jammer Central.

Believe it or not, the Jammer Central hasn't always been around. If you can recall the Beta Days, where the Jammer Central is now used to stand a large stone gong. There were two versions of this gong: one without a big green gem in the middle, and one with a big green gem in the middle. I like to think that green gem is an Alpha Stone and was an early version of the Adventure portals, but that's a whole different story.

Back to the Jammer Central.

In the early days of the Jammer Central, the board looked like this:

This model of the Jammer Central consisted of three main bulletins: a special calendar with events going on during the month(s) or season, a video, and a gallery of artwork submitted by Jammers (keep in mind this was way before Masterpieces existed), as well as a Submit-Your-Work button. If your art was featured in the gallery, you would receive an Artist Plaque for your den.

Oh, and of course we can't forget about HOWLS!

Howls are short messages or shout-outs written by Jammers and handpicked by AJHQ to scroll across the bottom of the Jammer Central like a news ticker. If your howl got chosen, you would receive a Howl Plaque for your den.

Currently, the Jammer Central consists of four main bulletins: the latest Play Wild update, featured Masterpieces, a video, and a Submit-Your-Work button.

Wait a minute...





Have Howls been gone for a long time? Am I late to the party?

Well... I guess since Howls have been discontinued, so has the Howl Plaque, so Howl Plaques have now increased in value ever so slightly.

I can't think of anything else to talk about. Sorry to close the post on such a sad note. You may as well pay your respects to Howls in the comment section, if you really want to.

Bye Jammers!
