Contest Winners, a shout-out to Cloudclaws, a minor blog update and a new llama!

Hey guys! It's finally Saturday :D Woohoo! So the first thing I want to tell you is that yep, someone found the secret image hidden around Jamaa. You know, of the new animal? People found it surprisingly fast too, some videos were posted an hour after AJHQ told everybody about it. And so I have a picture! Cloudclaws actually showed it on her blog first and that's where I found it, so credit goes to her. Her blog Animal Jam River is awesome, so click here to go to it! Now, the actual image! It's in Canyons Pathway (as it shows in the picture).
Oh cool, it's a llama! Remember back in March when there was a big deal about 1231? Well it turns out that WAS a hint to the next animal, and I think AJ was just testing it out and accidentally released it, because it doesn't look finalized.
Nice! I bet they'll be in the Diamond Shop (as usual) but I think I will buy one because they are amazing!! If Dan played Animal Jam, I bet he would like these. I wonder what they'll look like? Will they be anything like the Crossy Road llamas?
Dear goodness, I hope not! XD The colors are pretty on the unreleased one, but have you ever seen a turquoise and blue llama?! AJ usually sticks to the actual colors of the animals for their base colors (like when you buy a fox it's dark red/white, like foxes in real life) so I doubt those will be the base. Tan or brown would be a better guess. But who knows? I assume they'll be out on the 11th, the day of the next update. I'm so excited!! Anywho, you might remember I had a giveaway waaaay back (on the first day of 2014) and then reopened that earlier this month. And it ended yesterday! So I'm sorry if you didn't enter it in time. But anyway, I am finally announcing the results, after almost exactly a year and a half! So without further ado, the winners!
  1. Birthday cake- RonenTheGamer

So yeah! Congratulations, winners! Enjoy your gifts! That was a fun giveaway. All right, next up our uopdate today has to do with my spin today! I got the presents x3, which is pretty cool. Let's see what I got!
A Clover Blanket, nice, I already own that color but nice...
A Bunny Hat, not the most exciting item, and...
The Freedom Bunny Hat. Well, it's like two birds of a feather! Except more like two bunnies of a...tail. Hmm, it doesn't have the same ring to it. Oh yeah! By the way, I changed the blog header! It used to just be the regular font, but I changed it to Coming Soon, my favorite font (is it weird that I have a favorite font?). Do you like it? I do! Okay, I'm going to wrap up this post with the new items in the Summer Carnival!
Awesome!! With the silly Cotton Candy Hat you now can have 2 different desserts on your forehead! It goes along great with the Rare Cupcake Hat.  
Also the Carnival Lights look amazing. I love the way the artists animated the item, it looks authentic to a real carnival. That would go on the side of a ferris wheel or a drop zone ride. Or any ride, really. They're both really cool items! Okay, I'm going to leave this post here. I hope you enjoyed! I will open another contest soon, so keep an eye on my contest blog (link in the sidebar) for that. But until then, I will see you next time! Bye!

THE SUMMER CARNIVAL NUMBER FOUR!

Hey Jammers! When I first signed into Animal Jam this morning, the first thing I noticed was the NEW LOADING SCREEN!
I think you know what that means! Anyway, iiiit's Thursday, and you aslo know what that means! UPDAAAATES!! And yep! We were right! THE SUMMER CARNIVAL IS HERE!!
WOOOOHOOO!!! THE SUMMER IS BACK IN SESSION!! YEEE HAW!! Sorry, I just get reeeally excited about this thing :D In my opinion, it's one of the most fun events of the year. Like last year, it doesn't appear in your party list but you have to click the signs around Jamaa.
So let's get in and explore a bit! The music of it is awesome. It sounds like a real carnival (except not the exciting thrill of waiting in hot lines for an hour!) Let's check out that podium in the middle with all the bags to see if it does have performing lions and bunnies in suits.

Nope. No it doesn't. Just boxes and bags. It would actually be hard to perform on that if someone doesn't clean those off. What's in those anyway? More phantoms? They definitely seem to have a lot of those at the Carnival. Well anyway, is anything new? All the games are the same, all the shops seem to be the same, and there's definitely no roller coaster, so I guess there's nothing new this year in the SuHOLD UP. WAIT A SECOND. HOLD YOUR FACE. IN YOUR TOES. HOLY CRAP.
A SLIDE?! IN THE SUMMER CARNIVAL?! AND I HAVE BEEN HOLDING DOWN THE SHIFT KEY FOR 3 MINUTES SO maybe i should stop now. But seriously!! This is amazing!! SLIDES FOR EVERYONE!!! You know what I always say (actually you probably don't because I don't say it that often on this blog but meh whatever)...
Tbh, I do love slides though.
There's a bounce house up there too! So cool. Also, right next to it, there's a little camping bench where you can go camping with your snake! Or other pet I suppose.
You wouldn't believe how long it took me to take this picture, first there were people in the way and then AJ marked the things I wrote as "inappropriate" XD
Cool! So they added an entire new back section this year. Nice! Let's see if there's anything else different.
NEW ITEMS! Right from the get-go! I spent almost all of my tickets on this cute but ridiculous Hummingbird Balloon Hat:
I'm so dorky in my hummingbird balloon hat :3 It's expensive though. The only thing I can buy now is this Bundle of Balloons, which I already have:
Speaking of balloons, there's a red one on top of Candy Catch. Is that new or did I just not notice it before?
Wow, I got so caught up in talking about the Summer Carnival that I forgot to talk about anything else! There are other pages of the Jamaa Journal, you know. So let's get to them!
Oh. New questions and we already talked about the Summer Carnival. A lot. SO NEXTPAGE!!
Oh cool! A new theater! I was wondering if they were going to show all those animated videos (to commemorate new and returning animals) that AJ has been making recently in the game. They have had at least 11 so that's cool that they have their own theater... I actually made a blog about this theater! Mostly because it's called The Huge Appondale Theater and the initials are T.H.A.T. So it's #THATblog! :3 I'm so immature. Click on the picture or here to visit it.
thatblog.blogspot.com
Okay, onto the next/last page!
Yep, another animal out and gone. But hey, when the otters come back, they can join the rest in T.H.A.T! Also I'm stumped with that "secret image" thing. Where is it? If you find it, please let me know! Jamaa is a big place and it just keeps getting bigger so it's hard to find a specific thing... Eh, I'm sure it will be all over the Animal Jam blogs by tomorrow. Okay, next...ah, well, the last page is just yet another ad for the Spring Bunny so I won't repost it. Speaking of Spring Bunnies, I saw one in Crystal Sands today!
So if you haven't seen one actually in Jamaa, there it is. Well that's it for this post! It was very long. Sorry about that. Long posts are fun once in a while! :D So goodbye, and I will see you next time!

Exploring!

Hello everyone! Counting down the days until school ends? It seems like the school year just started, now it's almost ending! It's been an interesting year for me, and now we can get ready for another summer!! But right now it is Tuesday, and we all know that I rarely post the Rare Item Monday on a Monday (rarely HAHAHAHA JOKES FOR DAYS) so let's call it RIT! Rare Item Tuesday!
I stole this picture from somewhere, I can't remember sorry...
The Rare Woven Shoes! Nice! I don't think that's already an item... is it? *checks Jam-Mart Clothing* Nope! But wait, it's warm so it might be in the Hot Cocoa Hut...hmmm... *checks there* Oh by the way, the Yeti Mask will be gone in 2 days... nope! Not there either! Can you believe it?! Animal Jam is actually releasing an original Rare Item Monday!!
YEAH!!! Eh, I didn't buy that though. I wonder if they'll make more? Well, let's move on to some other items! I think AJ is giving us a discreet message with their items, hmmm, I wonder what it could be...
Exploring items!! Yaay!! I like how everything else is brown/green and those binoculars are pink... Way to fit in with everyone else, binoculars! And there I go again with the talking to inanimate objects. Also, was this mentioned in the Jamaa Journal? Sometimes I just completely skip an issue because I'm procrastinating on reading them or something like that. I did that with the Bouncy Party, I posted it like it was such a new thing and then went back yesterday and found out that it was in the Jamaa Journal. Anyway! Speaking of the Jamaa Journal, I can't wait for the Summer Carnival!!! They talked about it in the JJ 2 weeks ago, and I think it will be released on Thursday!
I really hope so. The Summer Carnival is one of the best parts of Animal Jam, in my opinion! It's really fun and there are a ton of games to do and things to buy. Maybe they'll have a new carnival game! Let's hope so! National Geographic Kids posted this beautiful drawing of the fair in their June/July 2015 magazine.
sorry it's sideways :P Just tilt your head! :D
SO COOL. I wonder what that stage is about, are lions and bunnies going to randomly start performing on those boxes and bags in the front or something? Also that roller coaster looks promising! That would be AMAZING if we got to ride a roller coaster in Animal Jam!! Although that wouldn't be as exciting as in real life, of course. Do you like roller coasters? I like small ones, those are super fun, but the big ones scare me... :P Anyway, I will wrap up this post with a message from Animal Jam Headquarters!
Oh. Just an ad for ToT. Darn. It's fun but I don't play it that often. But anyway, that's it for this post!! See you later!

An Abundance of Mechanical Items

Click here to enter a rare item giveaway! 
Hi guys! Sorry if the many jumping potatoes in the background are distracting you from the post. BUT IT'S AJP'S BIRTHDAY TOMORROW!!! Yeah, I know it's not that big of a deal, it's only a small blog, only the 2nd birthday blah blah blah.... But I'm kind of known for taking small things ad making them EXPLOSIVE. That means huge, not actually exploding... though some things do explode! Mostly on 4th of July. I am also known for getting really off topic, as you can see! So let's get back to the post. The Jamaa Journal for last week came out on Tuesday! TUESDAY?! WHAT HAPPENED TO THURSDAY?! COME ON, DON'T BE CHANGIN' EVERYTHING!! Random fact: Every other Thursday has been the day for the Jamaa Journal ever sice 2010, with only a few exceptions. SO WHY CHANGE IT NOW?! Anyway. Let's actually look at the Jamaa Journal instead of just yelling about it.
See, it says May 12th instead of May 14th... what's with the Tuesday AJHQ??
Ah! Cheetahs are back! Yay hooray I missed you so much! (I didn't even know they were gone XD) And, with the traditional AJ customs, right after they bring back an animal....
...They just get rid of another one. Goodbye otters! No one will know you're gone! Unless, of course, they try to create a new one during the time that you are gone. That will suck! But I already have an otter so it doesn't apply to me... I have a lot of the animals except for some of the diamond ones. It's not like I couldn't buy them! I have PLENTY of diamonds to spare...
:P I wish I could give away gems and diamonds. Because I have a quarter of a million gems on AJ too... it's mostly because I never spend them and I keep geting more. I just feel greedy!! I'm sorry all y'all out there who need currency! Anyway. Onto the rest of the Jamaa Journal. NHEXITPAOGE!!1!1!!
Ooo a new 2-player game!! Bowling, that sounds fun! ALthough I don't really get how it works. Here's how it looks:
Pretty cool! I like how there's a coconut for a ball. But the scoring is a bit weird, when I get 8 pins down, I get 8 points, but if I get 9 pins down I get 17 points.
Hmm. Weird. But anyway, onto the next page!!
Yaaay! The Summer Carnival!! This will be Animal Jam's 4th Summer Carnival in a row. It seems like it just started... I wonder if they'll add any new carnival games this time. That would be interesting instead of just the original 3 games from 2012. And a new exhibit about cheetahs!! They're my favorite animal so that's nice that they're making a virtual exhibit dedicated to them! Anyway, onto the last page.
WOAH!! A MECHANICAL PINK DRAGON!! I like this new series of items, they look amazing and they all transform when you click the big yellow button (all of them, including the Mechanical Couch)! Here is all of them so far, the newest being the Mechanical Wall Light. There's a lot of them!


That Mechanical Dragon Egg is my favorite!! For one, it's nonmember. And two, it does THIS!
It's so adorable!!! <3 It is my squishy and it shall be mine and it shall be my squishy.
I LOVE IT SO MUCH I WANT TO GIVE IT HUGS!! I love that movie. Did you know they're making a Finding Dory? I'm gonna go watch that when it comes out! But for now, I have to leave. Tomorrow AJP will be 2 and I will be happy :D Goodbye!!

Pet Rules

Oh hey, you've made it to the bottom of the page. Well, now that you're here, it's now your responsibility to make sure the pets get fed. So:
1. Feed Pete 2 or 3 fish. DON'T FEED HIM MORE THAN THAT!! He'll fall over!
2. Over on the Fun Stuff page, feed the fishes about 15 pieces of food (5 clicks) Don't let the red one eat all the food! She's very greedy.
3. And finally, feed Rosie who is also on the Fun Stuff page. She needs about 2 apples and 1 piece of broccoli every day. She loves being brushed, so you should pet her with the brush too!

That's all! Now go feed them. THEY'RE HUNGRY. Oh, and by the way did I mention they need these daily?
