Unreleased Items in AJHQ's Pixel Place Den

Hello Jammers! In AJHQ's pixel place den, there are some more unreleased items hiding around. Here's a few I spotted:


A sailor seal plushie that might be a virtual prize for a soon-to-come AJ toy! :o


An adorable red piggy plushie. ^.^


A new Alpha statue of some sort... hmm, who/what do you think it could be?


A creepily happy caterpillar couch... o-0 I'd better keep my distance.


A fancy golden clock!

Which of these items do you hope come to stores? I really want that seal plushie... :3

NEW Jambassador Plaque

Hello Jammers! :3 In a recent video by wolffeycat, she along with the other Animal Jam YouTubers who went to VidCon were each sent a special plaque as a vote of thanks for their dedication to spreading the word about the game. These lucky players are known as "Jambassadors".


This new plaque must be extremely rare, considering there are only a few existing in the game.

Tell me what your thoughts and opinions are on this plaque in the comments. ^.^ Goodbye!

Animal Jam Spotlight: WisteriaMoon

Hi Jammers! ^.^ Since it was so heavily requested by my buddy elizaboo1104, for today's Animal Jam Spotlight we're going to be talking about WisteriaMoon.

WisteriaMoon is a popular Animal Jam YouTuber who began her channel on March 29th, 2013. Her first ever video was an AJMV of the song "Demons" by Imagine Dragons. Here it is:


Then, on November 30th, 2013, Wisteria published a video that set off her career as a famous YouTuber... Brave. Not to mention it's her most viewed video on her channel.



This has to be the best Animal Jam love story out there in the entire community. It will be remembered by Jammers from all over Jamaa.

Wisteria is also a very talented digital artist, although we don't get to see much of her drawings anymore. She drew those wolves; isn't that amazing!?

Her main animal is her wolf, Sleeping Desertflower. The wolf's outfit consists of a brown and pink top hat, a brown diamond shop spiked collar, a brown sword, pink elf bracelets, and to top it all off, a pink elf tail armor.

Some more facts about Wisteria are:

- Her real name is Mia
- She lives in the eastern part of the U.S.
- She is 17 years old
- She has more than 100K subs

Thanks for reading this Animal Jam Spotlight! I hope you all enjoyed!

See you soon! :)

AJW 4th Birthday Present from cuddly6342!

AMAZING FAN ART


"Hoax" Rares

Hello! Today we're going to be talking about "hoax" rares. :3

You've probably never heard of the term "hoax" rares before, right? That's because I literally just invented it about five seconds ago. xD

Hoax rares are rares that aren't ACTUALLY rare. A lot of times famous Jammers will start collecting a certain item, and then their fan base will jump to the conclusion that this item is now extremely rare. When a random item randomly becomes valuable for no reason, it screws up the trading economy.

Other times famous Jammers will do a prank video that will once again cause the fan base to go haywire and jump to the assumption that whatever item is being used in that video is now extremely rare. Take ibex horns, for example.


In this video, Nemachu is being offered a first glitched ring for some light pink ibex horns by his storage account. Naturally the fan base went ahead and started telling everyone that ibex horns had suddenly risen in value. Once Nemachu confessed that his video was meant to be a joke, everyone got really angry, mostly at Nemachu. People practically trading everything they had for these ibex horns - headdresses, spikes, glitched rings, beta tiaras, beta blankets... you name it. Personally I think Nemachu never intended for this video to be a joke and he wanted to screw up the economy on purpose, but that's a story for a different time.

Do you get what I'm trying to say now? I hope I don't sound too confusing. :T

Some other hoax rares include:






I hope you enjoyed learning about hoax rares. This was an interesting topic to post about. c:

Thanks for reading, happy jamming, play wild, stay safe, and most importantly - keep whipping!

Happy 4th Birthday, Animal Jam Whip!

Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday dear AJW
Happy birthday to you!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANIMAL JAM WHIP!!!


It's been a fantastic four years. When I first started this blog, I never expected to get this far. Thanks to everyone who views this blog, and of course the amazing game called Animal Jam, the Animal Jam Whip gets to celebrate another anniversary. ^.^

Here's a small collection of memories from 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015...


The AJW's 1st birthday!


100K Views!

 

A group photo from the 10K views party!

Seals jumping in sync. o3o

You can check out more pictures like these on the scrapbook page. :)

Since you guys have given so much to me, I want to give something in return. Over the course of the month I've been secretly stalking some of my buddies (just depending on whether they were online at the moment) and making graphics of their animals. Little did they know their animal would be featured in a collage...


Now, I know I have a lot more wonderful buddies than the amount you see in the collage, but I didn't have the time to create a graphic for each and every single one of you. But I hope you enjoy this little gift either way. c:

Well, that basically sums everything up. Once again, THANK YOU! <3

Keep on whipping!

Blog Shout Outs

Hello! ^.^

Let's make this snappy - today I thought it would be fun to give some shout outs. For this shout out post, I'm going to be giving shout outs to a few different blogs. The administrators/authors of these blogs have put in a lot of hard work, pain and sweat into their content and they deserve a lot more attention than they get. :)

I've made a shout out post like this before, but that time I only featured three blogs, including the Weekly Jammer News by swirlshine (which is still an amazing blog that you should totally go check out), but this time I am going to be giving more shout outs.

With that being said, let's get started!


The Animal Jam Friendship Community is a blog run by graciepopstar91. Gracie puts a lot of effort into making her blog a pleasure for all who visit it! Her content is very uplifting and inspiring, too! :) She often includes spiritual scripture verses in her posts. Overall, an outstanding blog run by an outstanding person!


The Animal Jam Jumble is a blog run by lostfairy. Lostfairy is super kind and sweet and does a very good job at making her posts jam-packed with awesome information! Keep up the good work, Lostfairy! ^.^


The AJ Sunshine Blog is a blog run by a number of Jammers, but 2fangwolf is the creator. You can find some great tips and tricks from this blog. The AJ Sunshine Blog is just a fantastic blog overall!


The Animal Jam Legendary Palooza is a blog run by violet86271. This blog has been around for quite some time, and it is still as helpful and awesome as it was when it first started! Violet does an excellent job at making her posts fun to read! c:


The Animal Jam Spring is a blog run by penguin55544. First off, that new crystal template looks EPIC. :o And secondly, Penguin is a great blogger - he often posts consistently, and he's diligent and hard-working, too. Definitely a must-visit!


The Animal Jam Graphic Central is run by awesomepanda868 and a few other authors as well. The AJGC is a wonderful blog where you can find the best graphics for your blog, YouTube channel, or anything Animal Jam-related, really! The template is also neatly set up and the posts are quite tidy too. :3


The Animal Jam Comet is a blog run by Cheetah87516. Cheetah is also a marvelous blogger; she puts in a ton of effort into her blog. The template for her blog is super cute. ^w^ She's an extremely nice person, too. Go give the Comet a look!


The Animal Jam Insiders is a blog run by Plantheart. Planet's a bit new to blogging, so she's only been posting for a few days, but her blog is as awesome as ever! Definitely worth a read!

That's the end of this post. If you didn't get a shout out, leave your blog's link in the comment section and I'll check it out! Thanks for reading, adios!

Meeting Some Fans :)

Happy Birthday lego45! + 3 Favorite Quotes

Hello Jammers! ^.^ Today is my brother lego45's birthday. He doesn't really play Animal Jam anymore, but it would be nice if you could all send him a happy birthday JAG. :)

For some odd reason I've been thinking a lot about quotes lately, and so I thought I would make a post on, well, quotes!

So, without further ado, here are three of my favorite quotes of all time. x3





Argh... now I want to CRYYYY... ;-;

I'd better end this post before I sob myself a stream.

Membership Bonus

Hey Jammers! Guess what!? There's a big membership sale going on right now! :O



6 month memberships only cost $5 per month, and 12 month memberships only cost $4.83 per month! You also get an increased amount of diamonds, too. Get it while you can!

Jamaa Journal VOL. 175: Spike Sale

Hello Jammers! Today is an UPDATE DAY! Woo hoo! :D Let's see what the Jamaa Journal has in store for us this week.


For this weekend only, you can pick up some super cool short spiked collars and wristbands in the Diamond Shop for only three diamonds each! They come in brand new colors, so don't freak out because they aren't the same spikes as the original rare ones. ^.^


My personal favorites are the teal and the purple!


Introducing Pixel Place, the all-new den! This den is pretty much a Minecraft cottage sort of thing. It looks cool though!


Pet Penguins are for sale in the Diamond Shop, and the Freedom Party has returned just in time for Freedom Day (the 4th of July). Can you believe we're already almost finished with June? o.o


Ooh! Rested on a rocky outcropping in Coral Canyons lies the new Wild Explorers Tent, where you can find videos to watch and AJ Academy experiments that you can print out and try for yourself!



Awesome!


You can now save and load masterpieces (thank GOODNESS!), and there is a new Zios frame available for masterpieces, too.


While the Alphas were out and about they sent us a letter, but by the time the letter got to us it was damaged. The three pieces of the damaged letter you see are clues to the next animal! Most people think it's a sloth. I wonder what sloths would look like in AJ!


And finally a hippo advertisement.

That's it for this update. Happy jamming!
