Animal Jam 4 in 1 Mini Blind Bag Review

Hello there! Welcome to the Animal Jam Whip blog!

Several days ago, my sister went to the store and picked up a piece of Animal Jam merchandise that I had never seen before. Honestly, I wouldn't really call it merchandise, but you get the idea.


It's a mini blind bag with four different prizes in it: a mini poster, some candy, lots of stickers, and a surprise toy, which could either be a lanyard, a bracelet, or a light up charm.


My sister got a wolf poster and the lynx bracelet.

I don't know how much she bought it for since I was gone during the time she purchased it, but personally I think the bag and the prizes inside it were pretty cool!

Thanks for reading, and happy jamming!

New Mysterious Promo Item: Professional Baseball Cap

Hi Jammers! ^.^ Recently a mysterious new item was spotted in Jamaa, and it's called the professional baseball cap.


From what I can see, it looks pretty cool. I doubt this is unreleased, so it must be a promo item of some sort. The question is, what piece of merchandise does it come from?

My guess is that it comes from the Summer 2017 AJ Box that is being shipped to homes all over the country. I still haven't received mine, but when it comes I will be sure to post a review on it!

That's all for today. Thanks for reading, and don't forget to comment your thoughts below!

Bye! :)

How to Play the Computer App Version of AJ

Hi there! :)

As you may know, the BETA computer app version of Animal Jam is now available for all Jammers with either a PC or Mac computer to test. I believe it was released on Thursday, July 27th, the same day that the Jammer Wall was updated.

If you are interested in this exciting opportunity, here are the download links:

PC DOWNLOAD

MAC DOWNLOAD

Unfortunately, there is no Chromebook download for the app at this time, but hopefully in the future there will be.

I apologize for such a short post today. I recently returned from a little camping trip so I'm still trying to get back on track with all that is going on in Jamaa. Bear with me until then!

Thanks for reading, and have a great day!

Animal Jam Computer App

*IMPORTANT NOTICE: I WILL BE GONE FROM 7/26/17 THROUGH 7/28/17. DURING THAT TIME I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO POST OR APPROVE COMMENTS.*

Hi Jammers! Naffy here!

Recently, AJHQ and the Jambassadors made a very special announcement. Soon, you will be able to play Animal Jam as a downloadable computer app!


Don't worry, you'll still be able to play the browser version of Animal Jam, but this is a great option for people who struggle with browser issues.

As of now, BETA testing for the app is closed to Jambassadors only, but according to snowyclaw, soon us Jammers will have the chance to help test it too! In fact, I think she mentioned somewhere that testing would open around July 26th, which is tomorrow!

That's all for today. Have fun in Jamaa, and I'll see you on Saturday!

Kit, the Animal Jam Merchandise Fox

*IMPORTANT NOTICE: I WILL BE GONE FROM 7/26/17 THROUGH 7/28/17. DURING THAT TIME I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO POST OR APPROVE COMMENTS.*

Hello Jammers! :)

Do you remember the Animal Jam merchandise post from several days ago? If you do, then that's great, because today's post will sort of build off of that post. ^.^

Have you ever noticed that on almost every single piece of Animal Jam merchandise, there is this purple and yellow fox somewhere on the packaging?




Above are just a few examples. Apologies for my horrible circling skills. :P

You can even find this mysterious character in the new 2017 trailer for Animal Jam itself. Just look it up on YouTube!

I've always wondered who exactly this fox is, and why I keep seeing it all over the place.

Well, thanks to AJKraft, we've finally been able to receive some information about this character, through the Animal Jam themed version of the classic Top Trumps game.

In the preview pictures for this product on Amazon UK, there is a special card that talks about this sly fox.


According to this card, the fox's name is Kit! She loves everything about Jamaa; playing fun games, meeting new buddies, decorating her den, etc. Apparently she is also very intelligent and adventurous, but doesn't have that much of a sense of style. Interesting...

Well, at least now I know exactly who Kit is. It would be nice to know why she's such an icon on Animal Jam advertising and marketing, but I suppose what little information we've got so far will do.

Thanks for reading. Happy jamming!

Secret Item in Graham's Observatory Den

Hey Jammers! I'm sure you already know what this post is going to be about because of the title, but today I wanted to show you how you can get your very own antique table that is hidden in AJHQ's customized Graham's Observatory, which showcases the all-new den that was brought to Jamaa in the most recent update.

You can enter the den by clicking on the big blue button at the top of the Epic Dens list. Once you've done that, go to the very top floor, and click on the table. A secret shop will open up, and you can now purchase the item!


Thanks for reading, and have a great day!

A Guide to Tiki Trouble

Hi Jammers! :)

Before we begin today's post, let me just say that the new Adventure, Tiki Trouble, is awesome. It's fun, you can collect cool prizes from it, and it brings a whole bunch of new lore into the game for people to theorize about.

Tiki Trouble is for all Jammers (thank goodness!), and it's timed, just like the Forgotten Desert. The main objective of the Adventure is to retrieve the powerful pearls from three tiki statues: Momi, Koa, and Kapena, and bring the pearls to Tavie so she can use them to help the fight against the Phantoms.

To do so, first you must find and bring each tiki statue a specific item that will grant you the authority to speak with them.

Momi wants a Phantom Fish, which you can find by fishing at the fishing docks. There is a total of three fishing docks around the island.


Click the nets to cast them into the water, and about a minute or so later, the nets will come out of the water with an item. Sometimes a net will retrieve a boot, which gives you a rare item.


Kapena wants an Ancient Coin, which you can find in the shallow waters. You'll know you're in the shallow waters when you see lots of rocks around. Often times you will find seashells hiding in the water as well.

Lastly, Koa wants a sparkly Jewel, which you can find by mining the geodes found around the island. Along with the jewel, you can also find fossils and even gold bricks. Yes, gold bricks!

After you've given each tiki their specific item, they'll tell you that they're hungry and want either a coconut, pineapple, or banana. After you've given them three of the different fruits, they will finally give you the pearl. Give the pearl to Tavie, and Tavie will award you with a prize. Two prizes if you're a member. :P

That basically sums it all up. There's a few other little secrets, however.

You can trade in any fossils, cans, or seashells that you find to a Trader for gems.


There is a secret passageway for arctic wolves that leads to a cave with geodes and chest inside. The chest gives you one of three different fruit trees for your den.


Lastly, there are many chests that can be found around the island that will either award you items or gems.






I hope you found this guide useful. Thanks for reading! Bye bye!

Graham's Gizmos

Hey Jammers! The update is finally here after a rather long wait, so let's check it out!


For this weekend only, a bunch of Graham themed items will be for sale in the Diamond Shop!



Cool! I really like those steampunk wings. :D


Additionally, there is a new den called Graham's Observatory, which can also be purchased in the Diamond Shop. ^.^


Pet koalas are here, and they are sooo adorable! <3


And yes, you can turn them into a ''spinnyboi''.

You know, it's kind of weird how AJHQ uses Julian2's character when they banished him from being a Jambassador. In my opinion, that's not really fair to Julian. What do you think?


The Jamaaliday Jam party is back for Christmas (or Jamaalidays) in July, so if you want to pick up some cool holiday items, now's your chance!


*gasps* A new Adventure!? I MUST TRY IT OUT IMMEDIATELY! Tiki Trouble can be accessed through the parties menu, and it already sounds like lots of fun. I'll probably post a little guide to it later on.


We were right, Jammers! Indeed, the gecko was just there to throw us off, but in the end, flamingos are the newest animal that will be coming to Jamaa. I'm pretty excited for them. I wonder if they'll turn out like the leaked pictures.


The mystical armor set is back in the Diamond Shop, and otters will sadly be traveling on August 3rd.


Lastly, Animal Jam backpacks are now available in Toys 'R Us stores. I'm assuming they come with a feature code, and two of them were leaked already, sooo...

There's a few more things to this update, but I'll post about them over the course of the next few days.

Also, do you remember when Clark Stacey made a comment about his anticipation for the new changes coming to the Jammer Wall? A lot of Jammers assumed this update would have to do with that, but clearly they were wrong...


I can't wait!

Well, that's all for today. Thanks for reading, and happy jamming! (Give this update a review in the comments if you'd like!)

Odd Unreleased Item + Funny AJ Meme

Hey Jammers! Apparently the update is taking a bit longer than usual to arrive, so for the time being I will be posting about a weird (and possibly unreleased) item that was spotted in Jamaa the other day, as well as a funny Animal Jam meme I found.

Firstly, someone on Google Plus took this screenshot a few days ago of a mysterious item on another Jammer's trade list.


It looks very similar to the butterfly wristband/bracelet that is currently for sale in the Summer Carnival, but I'm still not quite sure what it's supposed to be. In my opinion, it could very well be an edit. What do you guys think?

Second, this made me laugh...

Heheh.

Thanks for reading. Hopefully the update review post will be up later today.

See ya!

Transions' Adventure Quiz + Fan Art

Hello Jammers! ^.^

Today, I will be taking a short quiz that was created by my friend Transions to see what Adventure is best for me. :) You can check out her awesome blog here. 

Let's begin!

1. What's your favorite land in Jamaa?
       A. Jamaa Township! I love all the people and crowds! 
       B. Sarepia Forest! There's so much to explore!
       C. Crystal Sands! I love to swirl down the slides!
       D. Kimbara Outback! Everyone underappreciates it's beauty.

Hmm... probably Jamaa Township, so A.

2. How do you like to do puzzles?
       A. I do the outer layer first! It's the easiest way! 
       B. Well, it depends how many pieces it has. One thousand works for me! 
       C. I see how many pieces I can put together in five minutes.
       D. I mix multiple puzzles together then separate them by putting the pieces together!

A, I guess.

3. What activities do you usually do with your buddies?
       A. Play games! I'm the best at them!
       B. Roleplay! I can let my inner wolf be unleashed!
       C. Trade! I want to become well known for being rare!
       D. Chat! I love meeting new people!

D!

4. What Eggstraveganza pet is your favorite?

       D. A Chick!

A. Platypuses are awesome.

5. What flying animal do you play with most often?
      A. An owl! It's so cute and fun! 
      B. A falcon! I can do so much with it!
      C. An eagle! It's the bravest and the strongest looking!
      D. A toucan! It's so beautiful, yet misunderstood!

Probably an eagle, because it's the one I most often use when playing the Forgotten Desert, so C.

Mostly As- You're best for the Return of the Phantoms! You love attention so reviving the water and saving the bunnies is perfect for you! 
Mostly Bs- You're best for the Greely's Inferno! You love long adventures that have lots of twists and turns!
Mostly Cs- You're best for the Forgotten Desert! You love racing against the clock so collecting gems on this timed adventure is perfect for you!
Mostly Ds-You're best for the Hidden Falls! You're unique and you always enjoy something different! This 2D adventure usually makes you happy to your heart's content!

I got mostly A's, so the Adventure I'm best fit for is the Return of the Phantoms! Ah, a classic. :P Although, I don't know about the loving attention part. I'm kind of shy IRL, hehe.

Let me know what you guys get! :)

Also, before I end today's post, I wanted to show some awesome fan art I recently received from flowerkitty38!


I love it! It's so cute!

Thank you so much, Flowerkitty!

As always, that's the whip!

Animal Jam Comic: The Ice Cream Angel (Episode #2)

Howdy! Yes, you heard it darn tootin' right - the Ice Cream Angel is back for another episode!

And no, I totally didn't visit southern Jamaa for a little bit while I was gone to hopefully sell some more ice cream. ;)

Anywho, I have some great news! After Gracie's huge donation, I had finally earned enough gems to buy myself an ice cream parlor!

I got me some rad HGTV designers to help slightly spice up the area, and for free, too. My two cousins Larry and Jerry did most of the work, but left quite a mess in the place when they were finished, so I fixed it up. They actually got fired by HGTV because half of their customers hated the designs they came up with, so now they're living in my aunt and uncle's basement with loads of potato chips and Netflix shows to watch. Aren't they the coolest!!???

After that, the guy who I bought the building from gave me the keys to the place, along with some instructions.



And just like that, I was ready to open up shop!



It looks like we're getting business, boys!


What a nice first batch of customers for the day!


They seem to all want the mucus flavored ice cream, don't ya think?




Aww, they're all smiling with their fresh, organic, mucus ice cream!


Thanks for the feedback, Rad Goofycoyote!

Hmm... is anyone up for some chicken wing ice cream?


Okay! *shoves ice cream into Perfect's mouth*



Oh no! I thought all of my customers were having an enjoyable time at my restaurant. :(

Will the Ice Cream Angel get her restaurant back? Find out in the next episode!
