Snow Cannons and Sleds

Hey jammers! Thanks for letting me take a little break, I had a late night with sports and homework. Do you guys enjoy reading the blog or are your lives too busy for Animal Jam?

Anywho, yesterday's item was the very popular Snow Cannon, and today's is the returning winter Sled. Both of these are available for purchase in the Jam Mart Furniture.

 AJHQ has also posted some new DE articles!





I also have some fun Animal Jam background to share. My friend supermonkeys sent it to me a while back, but I, for some reason, haven't posted it until now. There is a really interesting article about Animal Jam, Smart Bomb's CEO Clark Stacey, and the future of Jamaa. Click here to read the info about Alphas and more! There is also this really neat interview Stacey does, and there's some mentioning of how AJ is influenced by the players (perhaps, in part, our Jamaasian Movement?).


Some fun things he talks about are the fact that games are a "storytelling medium" that need characters (the Alphas!). Though this was a few months ago he speaks of Alphas having a larger influence in the game. Exciting right? Anyway, hope you enjoyed the inside scoop on AJHQ. Happy jamming!

  3. Nice post! I like looking at Daily Explorer posts, especially awesome jammer art! I also love the two items! Also that video you posted is interesting.

  4. All of the famous AJ people left.. Animal Jam isnt animal jam anymore... It's so boring now, people dont know what is rare and what is not rare. Also everything and I mean EVERYTHING is coming back(items)...plus there arent any scammers anymore, like yes I and everyone else hates scammers, but lets face it, when there were scammers everything was exciting...oh and how about trading parties? ...or just...Parties... It's all dead and gone now.

    1. All you care about are items! I play Animal Jam because of the friends I meet.
      With real friends Animal Jam will never be boring!

    4. Well, sometimes Animal Jam does get boring, but I think no scammers is a good thing. And Animal Jam is never boring with friends. But that's my opinion, and everyone is open to their own one.

    5. AJ never gets boring for me, but I think that they're missing out on Mythology. Games like MonkeyQuest have a ton and are playgrounds, but Animal Jam is about friends now... Yes, that is good but I think that it would be more popular with alphas, a story, reviving Mira and Zios, quests, battling phantoms, and multiplayer quests. There are still scammers, and therare item mondays are clouding up what's rare and what's not, but overall I think that AJ is an awesome game. It is defined by roleplays and true buddies, not rares and scammers. Smart Bomb is trying to make alphas, and we should wait.

    6. @the SECOND anonymous
      I agree! All the first anonymous cares about are items. AJ isn't about the items. I mean...honesty...there just pixels.....And worn blankets are just worn blankets....I mean c'mon guys...I play animal jam because of friends, and other various reasons, not because of rares, or even items. If there were no such thing as items, I would still play AJ. >.<


      Sorry for the long comment.

      AJ says they will bring in the Alpha's more. They said that in the video. I believe them.

    8. Yeah. I hope they add more of the alphas to animal jam. When I get bored of Animal Jam I play monkey quest.

    9. When I get bored I play minecraft or wolf quest

      That's EXACTLY what I meant, although they might want to tell us ingame, like the Jamaa Journal. They could say that the alphas are aproaching, and every update they could include an alpha tracker to tell us where in the uncharted lands the alphas are, and start up quests where you interact with the alphas through hologram calls. I hope that they really think about considering weather reports, and maybe altering some alpha fan fictions on blogs such as Snowyclaw's story blog and mine, as some can only be thought of by fans. Anyone agree?

  5. A few posts ago snowy had about 300 comments, now it is getting smaller and smaller. I think it is time to advertise your blog snowyclaw. I watched the video and it is very interesting! I love the artwork! The problem is, when to go to aldan then the bridge, nobody's EVER there anymore. It makes me sad. We usually sat down and talked and laughed. Not anymore. Where is everyone ?

    3. I agree with Imani Apple, because some of the posts just don't ask people to discuss(I mean that there aren't enough topics) and besides, there are still loyal fans out there. Let's hope that we can endure this shortage of comments, although I have no idea what effect it may have on Animal Jam Spirit.

    4. well for some people @TheDreamSchool it is really hard for people to find the time to comment on certain days and i just am lazy :P (sorry if that comment was offensive or anythin')

    1. I can't believe that Smart Bomb targets the game at 5-10 year olds! Most of the players are over 11. I think that they should bring back lore and weather reports, changing the weather every update, such as heavy snow in Feburary, then rain in the next update. That way, AJ has more variety to it. I like the video too, I didn't know that Smart Bomb liked Animal Jam so much!

      Delete
    2. I am way older than 10 and I play AJ. Yeah, it would be cool if they added that stuff.
      Also I think it would be kinda cool if AJ had day and night times! Maybe not in real time though, since people from all over the world play AJ at different times. But like 3 hours day 3 hours night. That would be awesome!

      Delete
    3. Yeah, they should have more varied weather and maybe a time zone that is Central, like CP time is Pacific. Also, we created fan fictions about the alphas because we wanted to fill in the holes about them, and I think that it's awesome that Smart Bomb is reading our fan fictions. Besides, the snow leopard "play" action is a step towards extending the range of ages the game is appropiate for.

      Delete
    4. that would be awesome but i think it would be a bit confusing with all the time zones and stuff it is kinda annoying coz when i go on aj there is like no people because our day is americas mdnight :P so i can never really find any of my friends,

  11. I love your blog! Even though I am sometimes too busy to go on AJ, I make it a point to try to visit your blog each day. I read the link, and I think it is so cool! They said the alphas would become a bigger part of the game in the next few months, and we would interact with them! Awesome!

    Ok, i need a member's help...
    Can someone please trade me all colored hat and curly wigs and all colored 2013 banners? (except for their default colors)
    Because every member i keep asking just ignores me.
    I will be trading their default colors for them, so i will trade the green hat and curly wig for the other colors, and i will trade the blue 2013 banner for other colors.
    I don't want people asking me to give rares for them because the things i need are STORE BOUGHT. I just need them colored. My username is pielover4ever, reply to me if you are able to trade me. Thx :)

  19. Smart Bomb looks like a great company, and they actually listen to player feedback, unlike other sites. Also, they have less inappropiate actions(in CP you can fart) and they only do advertising for their own site. However, they need to do a better job to start up the Animal Jam journey, and maybe some new lands. We don't have a Temple Of Mira or a meadow yet, and I want to see what's up at the peak of Mt. Shiveer.

    1. Farting isn't that bad. On Animal Jam you can jump on other animals. That's way more inappropriate.

      Delete
    2. You can dance on penguins in CP, too. Sheesh4, that is unavoidable in many cases. Besides, what is you were trying to do CPR? Another thing, the kids on AJ know it's mean to jump on animals, and people scam on Animal Jam all the time. I see some fraud salespeople coming up... Look, there is no way to get rid of inappropiate stuff, and most games let you do that because you might be trying to jump behind them, and two avatars close together isn't that uncommon. No offense, but next time could you consider the programming?

      Delete
    3. You're the one who mentioned farting as being inappropriate. I was just saying that that is not nearly as inappropriate as jumping. At any rate I'm perfectly aware of programming and some things are simply unavoidable as you said. What I don't like is that you kinda were just a hypocrite there. You criticized farting and I criticized jumping and you told me to consider the programming.

      Delete
    4. Could we end this conversation? This is getting as uncomfertable as my conversations with Sir Tiny Tiger. Yes, both are inappropiate, and one last thing: farting is inappropiate for manners, jumping safety. So sure, maybe jumping is more inappropiate, but you don't have to use the word "hypocrite." It is a word that really hurts my feelings. Being called a hypocrite can be disturbing for me.

  22. No that's just suggestive if someone does that. How can jumping ever be an inappropriate action?
    But how about the new snow leopards? When they "play" it looks as if they are fighting. Now that could be considered inappropriate.

    1. if someone jumps on another person... urm.. well i know there are kids on here, but... if you don't know what i'm talking about i guess you'll learn it when you're older. and people fight all the time in AJ. have you ever seen clans?

      Delete
    2. Animal Jam is about roleplay right now, and older kids are free to fight. Seriously, I think that Snow Leopards are a progression toward AJ being a Jamaasian website. People fight because they disagree or they are angry, but wars can occur if they are very, very angry. Besides, Snow Leopards are big cats, and they don't roar. So why not give older players a chance and have it do ninja moves? Besides, most kids on Animal Jam already know what a fight means. Besides, everyone gets into a fight in their life, and not all clans fight much, just the die-hard fans. Besides, most kids know what a "fight" means by age 4, so that remark wasn't necessary, the anonymous above me.

    1. Look at a previous post's comments for my description of a good revamp of the beta den. Beta clothing was already brought back, new lands is agreeable since they haven't made new lands for over a year, but we still do have a lot of shops, so that would be with new lands, and new animals are a must. I agree that I want to make a difference, although it would be more efficent to email her even though she recieves an email every time someone comments.

    3. Maybe you should go on Animal Jam and start a roleplay, or maybe stroll through Snowyclaw's blog. Also, you could search "Gardevoir Goes To The Convenience Store" for a funny pokemon video on Youtube. If you are suspicious that you will find an inappropiate video, just watch some videos on Snowyclaw's art blog. I hope that I helped.
