Lawn Chairs & Sneak Peek

Namaste, Jammers! Today's new item is the latest addition to the tiki set, the Tiki Lawn Chair!
Is anyone noticing the creepy faces on all of these items? See if you can spot it on this chair.

A bunch of new videos at the theaters, both Brady and Saripea.

Get this-there's one about CATS! It's su kawaii <3
And educational, but more KAWAII <3

Speaking of cute things, check out this drawing made by MisterChunkyBuddy!
Eeek! Phantoms! Fight them off, little seal!
Wow! That must have taken a long time, but it looks worth it! Great job!

And an exclusive sneak peek at the AJ's Insiders Guide!? I have my own copy, but honestly there were only a few pages about Animal Jam that interested me. There was plenty of fact filled fun though!   This book has some interesting information about the alphas, and tells the stories about how the Phantoms came to be, and about mysterious stones called heartstones'. You jammers should read it!

Now it's time for the Written Wednesday!
How do you jammers feel about AJ's approach to betas? Are you happy you have something marked 'beta'? Do you think marking an item 'BETA' doesn't make it beta in the gaming sense at all? Do you think this is reducing scamming and hacking?

That's all for today, until the beta party opens up in a few hours. Thanks for reading, jammers! Fare thee well!

    Well, the "beta" name doesn't really make sense since they aren't actually beta, AJHQ should have just given them normal names, like "TV" Instead of "beta" TV.
    Yes, it might reduce scamming and hacking because the items look beta, but almost all scammers and hackers like items for their RARITY, not their looks so it's not very effective.
    Im quite happy with the beta items though, they have a "beta" look and i mostly judge items for their looks.

  3. Having something that says beta does not make it beta. AJ is overusing the word. Beta things are the art easel, the blue shag rug. ACTUAL BETA ITEMS!!!!

    I really want the animal Jam insiders Guide! It looks awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  5. Most new jammers might not know that though. I agree they are not beta. AJHQ might have been trying to reduce scamming but I don't think it will work. Beta items were in the testing stage of Animal Jam, and I has been a long time since it. I think some jammers that want the beta days to return need to get out of the past because they wont.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Wow! That drawing probably took along time I really like it :D

    ReplyDelete
  7. The faces on the Tiki Items are... very creepy...
    I haven't bought myself an Insider's Guide, mostly because I'm trying to NOT be on Animal Jam as much, but it is a very cool Guide, as I've seen from all the posts.
    MisterChunkyBuddy did a very splendid job with the drawing. I can't draw that well in the Art Studio! Good job!

    Now, Written Wednesday: I like the new approach that Animal Jam has at betas, but I don't think it will reduce scamming and hacking, sadly. The marking of Beta might just be because these items were built off of original designs that AJHQ had but never released. But putting "Beta" now, so far from the Beta testing, doesn't really make any logical sense.

  9. Good job with the artwork. It looks like it took quite a long time. I can't draw that well on a computer... I have noticed the faces on the Tiki items. O.O The Insider's Guide is very nice, I have to say. It's good to have the site creators' point of view on the world of Jamaa, I think.
    For Written Wednesday, Animal Jam's approach with the Beta party won't really reduce scamming and hacking. Most people who scam or hack go for in demand items, such as Headdresses and Spiked Collars/Wristbands. The items may be designs Animal Jam originally had but never released, you never know.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Written Wednesday: I don;t really like how they put "Beta" on everything when it's really not. I think they should put "Old T.V", or "Old pink jar"

    It would not make it a fake beta, plus all the items in there look really old, so I think "Old" would be better then "Beta" on these items. Also when I ask people to trade me den betas they trade those grrr -.-

  15. Ribonette AJ/ Scorekepper AJAugust 6, 2014 at 6:27 AM

    For Written Wendsday, I feel the beta party isn't even really beta at all. You look around and see items like Bubblegum Machines, Art Easels and Blue Mats. But at the shop down there all you see is fake den betas. Could they at least add clothing betas if they can you these fake den "betas"? It would really reduce scamming. AJHQ made a poor party choice cause it is not even close to a real beta party.

  16. Is the otter update today or Saturday?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Congrats on unsaid 1st

    ReplyDelete
  18. You know, these "Beta" items may not be actual Betas but they could be the designs for Betas that AJHQ never published.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Aw... I was really hoping you'd post the otter art contest results today! :(

    ReplyDelete
  20. Hi it's me peeps! So how're y'all doing? I don't exactly have a written wensday but I wasn't here in the beta times so I don't exactly understand it all.

    ReplyDelete

    Betar

    ReplyDelete
  57. I'm pretty sure the beta furniture was for the looks in dens, not trading. But I do find it awkward for it to have "Beta" in front of it because again, it isn't beta.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I just checked the Beta Party, and there is nothing new there...
    Also, party later today at my den! XDDD

    ReplyDelete
  59. Good point, but I've got to admit, the beta blue rug looks pretty cool. :3

  81. You are right, though nowadays the animal jam spirit comment section feels more like a chat room!

    ReplyDelete

  92. cloudclaws said Rarity :3

    ReplyDelete
  93. Oh dear! The animals have discovered the internet! Also I am a timelord so I suppose only two of these facts would be true?

    ReplyDelete
  94. I have an iPhone iPod nano and a laptop- I have apps on the laptop (it doubled for a tablet because the screen comes off)

    ReplyDelete
  95. You are not cloudclaws...

    ReplyDelete
  96. here is 5 things i no your do :
    1.your reading this
    3.you skipped number two
    4 you just checked to see if there is a two
    5. you will reply on this

    ReplyDelete
  97. It makes no sense to mark anything beta at all because if it came out years after beta than how can it be beta. As owner of a beta meuseum these will not appear anytime soon.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Cloudclaws, Stormclaws, Snowyclaw, Rare claw- so many claws!

    ReplyDelete
  99. I don't really have claws, Idk what crocodiles feet are called.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Only two of them were correct XD the first and last one, I am not one to fall for these things.

    ReplyDelete
  101. I didnt reply, i didnt check to see a two.

    ReplyDelete
  102. The comment section is not a chat room. You are suppose to leave comments related to this post or personal opinions and game play experiences. Having every day conversations isn't the purpose of the comment section and in a way it is slightly abusive. There is a chat box on this website and would be nice if it was used.

    ReplyDelete
  103. You are smart

    ReplyDelete
  104. you did reed that so the first is right!

    ReplyDelete
  105. Sorry I don't understand people who spell incorrectly. I'm used to reading correct grammar instead. Try again CORRECTLY.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Hmmm.. That is right! And I though myself to be a crocodile fanatic! I shall never become a herpetologist if I do not know this! Le gasp!

    ReplyDelete
  107. Yes te first and the last ones are correct

    ReplyDelete
  108. You just got the same idea from EternalMyth.

    ReplyDelete
  109. It seems they are called "claws" or "webs" or just feet i guess.

    ReplyDelete
  110. :) i saw one of those down below and wanted to do one so i did coment down below your thoght please

    ReplyDelete
  111. Again, VERY serious. Though I suppose the world is in need of the stern types of people. Though the world would be a lot more fun if it was "ruled" by fun loving random people, it would begin to get annoying, and there would be a lot more chaos.

    ReplyDelete
  112. lol i just said comment on a comment

    ReplyDelete
  113. I learned something today! Now I may go back to sleep XD (it's only 9:37 AM)

    ReplyDelete
  116. Thats the most stupidest thing i have ever read and makes no sence. Are your a 8 year old?

    ReplyDelete
  117. Your not proving yourself to be any more intelligent.

    ReplyDelete
  118. I would like to ask an open question on why people are saying that these items aren't beta.

    ReplyDelete
  119. No need to be rude! Her joke is better than mine! Go check mine and see how stupid mine is! :D But Spongebob is much more stupid! :3 You can call me stupid everyday and all the time but please don't call any of my friends stupid again! Got it? Good. :3

    ReplyDelete
  120. Please lavender, do have a heart, there is no need to call anything you do not find amusing "stupid".

    ReplyDelete
  121. Minus the tiki faces, I like it as well! Perhaps I could make a tiki themed den for my monkey! Wait never mind I am going through an inventory crisis- I do not have enough room!
