Club Penguin again is working hard to make the “Music Jam” occuring on July 25, 2008 a success. Here is a sneak peek of what’s in store. The stage shown below looks to be taking place at the forest, a country music theme? Also, if you haven’t noticed the construction going on at the stage in the night club, go and check it out. The box in the center of the stage gives us a clue of what the next new game will be like.
Well, the new features are here. It looks like Club Penguin has upgraded there standards dramatically. However, there are still a lot of glitches in the system that needs to be fixed. Some people are happy with the new change but there are some that are not too keen about it either. Here is a walk through of new features and glitches that I found:
If you haven’t noticed already, there are new additions and changes to your screen:
Spy phone: The spy phone is now located on the bottom left hand corner of your screen, above your map.
Penguin Mail: All postcards are now retrievable via “Penguin Mail” (Don’t forget to pick up your “Your Mail Bag-Free Item).
Friend Request: what was once the postcard is now the “friend request”.
Friends Online: This little “smiley” now informs you which friend just logged on.
Sending postcards has just gotten easier. It’s now a flip of a book and scrolling through your buddy list offline and online. Also if you haven’t notice, there are also new postcards added as well as the old postcards with a different look.
Player Card Improvement
This is actually one of my favorite upgrade. This feature now makes it easier to find your clothing item without having to scroll through eacha page. Definitely a keeper!
Instead of the usual list of open igloos that you normally see, igloos now show as the image above. Three Negatives about it is that:
- Not all the open igloos will be displayed.
- It is now more difficult to look through the igloos. You actually have to go through each and every igloo to find out who it belongs to.
- The worse: With the new upgrade of the “Come to my party” postcard. If you cannot find an igloo on the list, not a friend, and they send you a card, there is NO “GO THERE” box that can take you to a non-buddy igloo.
Remember the green puffle located at the night club? Well, he can now be found playing hockey at the ice rink. If you stand “ON” the left side of the red circle in the middle of the rink, he will do his little hover trick, it looks like he’s hovering over you. Try it out.
Other upgrades also include the new snow forest background around your igloo and the new “save” button (disk) to save your igloo design.
The Mountain: The mountain on your map is now called “Ski Hill”
Finding Friends: Click on the “question mark” on your friend’s player card.
Penguin change: You are now able to see how your actual penguin looks like when you are changing. You can also view others as they change their clothing items.
Puffle Stats: You are no longer able to view the names and status of other penguin’s puffles.
Glitches and Bugs
Now here is the fun part, with every new upgrade, feature added there are also glitches and bugs that needs to be worked on. Here is what I have discovered so far:
Read your paper sideways or backwards: Simply face sideways or backward and open your paper. Others can see this.
Talk in “non-chat servers”: Yes, you can actually talk in non-chat servers now. (May be fixed soon)
Blank bubble chat: Click on your chat bar (make sure line is on chat bar-do not type anything) and press enter:
- Unlimited Buddies: You can now accept as many buddies as you want without the 100 buddy limit. One drawback is that, all your buddies will not show on your list. My buddy list only goes up to the letter “S” anyone else below that will not show on my buddy list. But don’t worry they were not deleted there names just does not show.
Strange Puffle in my igloo/Missing Puffles
Some of you may have found a puffle in your iggy that you did not purchase. I found this black puffle in my igloo on the first day of the upgrade. When clicked on this is what it showed. It will not allow you to feed, play, or bathe it. I left and came back and it changed into a different color. Some of you may have noticed your puffles missing or with this name as well.
When looking for friends: Status shows as “In their igloo” when they are not.
Rugs in igloo out of place: No longer able to place under table.
There are the glitches that have been fixed with the new upgrage. Sorry guys, I knew one day Club Penguin will get rid of it:
Nubbing: You can no longer nub. Well, sort of, you cant still walk behind your chat bar by walking pass it.
Dance with diffferent clothes glitch: You can no longer do the robot dance, or other dances. Club Penguin fixed it.
That’s all my posting for today, I wanted to post this earlier but did not have the time to do so. I will keep updating this post and new findings arise. I hoped you all are enjoying the new upgrades as well as finding new bugs, lol!

New Club Penguin Video Game
Another video game promoting Club Penguin, yes, another way to earn there money’s worth in my opinion. But if you enjoy playing Club Penuin then here you go. This new game will be available to Nintendo DS and will also be available for purchase during the holiday season. It’s a great gift idea for the Club Penguin addict. Click on the image below for the full article:

The new or should I say the return of the stage play “Squidzoid” has been released July 11, 2008. What to expect in the catalog are:
- Gamma Gal Costume, Superhero Pink Mask, and Cape
- Shadow Boy Costume, Superhero Blue Mask, and Cape
- Squidzoid Costume
- Reporter Camera
- Director’s Hat
- Cityscape Background (New and available to non-members)
Check out the Costume Trunk catalog without logging in below:
And don’t forget the Super Hero Costumes do have a “special move”: You can perform this move by putting on your costume (suit, cape, and mask: remember it must be those particular ones…it does not work for the old capes or mask) and pressing your wave button next to your chat bar. See below:
If any of you were there during the premiere release early this morning you may have noticed a glitch in the system. The items were unretrievable:
Only after Club Penguin disconnected everyone’s connection were we finally able to purchase our items.
This concludes my posting for today. Enjoy the new play! If you still have not completed the Club Penguin Mission 8, click here: Mission 8 guide.

CPIP: Penguin Mail Design Update
Penguin Mail is almost ready to launch. Club Penguin is predicting its debut to be sometime this month and even as early as next week? Penguin mail is a great addition to giving and receiving mail, imagine your own mailing system. Receiving mail when you are not online, deleting, ignoring and even being notified when you receive a mailer. This little mailbox will be placed on the left side of your screen. Below is a preview of what we are to expect:
