An Animal Jam, Real Life, Mashup Post, And A New AJ 'Toy'!

Hey Jammers! graciepopstar91 here!

Today's post will be a bit of a mashup of my real life, and my Animal Jam 'life'! So without further ado, lets get started!


Today, my Dad went away to a Men's Camp out of state, with some of the guys from our church. We were gonna drop him off at one of the guys house, because the truck he was gonna drive to the camp was there.

After we dropped him off, me and my Mom did a little bit of shopping, and I can't believe all the AJ toys we found 😳.

Our first stop, was Kohl's, and there we found these toys!

A few months ago I found the Adopt-A-Pet houses at Kohl's, but this time there was all of these toys. This is cool that theres now Animal Jam toys at Kohl's, but however, they are super overpriced.

Blocked out the sku for safety reasons, sorry!
$7.99 for one of those koala figurines.. Kinda pricey, but it's neat it's there!

Our second stop was Toys R' Us, because I wanted to see if there was any AJ toys.. Because I had a little bit of money... So I wanted one.... 😉

To my surprise, I found something I really had been wanting.

I completely freaked out. My reaction?


Heh heh..

When I redeemed the code, I got the Masterpiece Token! I wanted this sketchbook so bad, because I knew thats what you would get with the code.

Heres when I redeemed the code..

And me fangirling.. Like always.. Over every little thing..

In the sketchbook, theres a little interview, of one of the Animal Jam illustrators! 

This is the bottom of one of the pages of the interview with the illustrator ^.^. My first though when I saw that there was an interview with an AJ illustrator, I thought it would have been an interview with Taylor Maw, but it's pretty neat to see the other illustrators as well.

Our next stop was Michaels crafting store, and there me and my Mom bought something, that I think Karalee and Crazcatlover might like.

It was a bit expensive, but I hope it will help my drawing skills. It shows you how to make the body, the face, and all of that, to help you be able to draw animals better. You guys should look into it! 

Me and my Mom tried to draw a cat step by step, using this book, and hers turned out good, but mine- not so much 😋. This will take a lot of practice, but in the end, I hope my art is decent 😬.

Our final stop was Target, where I found-

A new AJ 'toy'?

It's not exactly a toy, it's actually a little necklace pack. I was really confused when I saw it.

Heres the display,

Notice the little necklace sample 😱..

My Mom got me one, and inside of it was these,

A necklace, sticker, necklace collectable guide (shown), and of course, a code (not shown)! But I only got 250 gems from the code 😛.

You can buy these at Target, for only $2.99. 

I don't think I would wear this necklace as an everyday accessory, because it is a tiny bit kiddish. But, if I ever ended up going to JamCon, or Animal Jam Headquarters, I would wear it 😉.


And that was my day ^.^. I had a lot of fun, but I have been having some on and off anxiety, because my Dad is away for the weekend. But he's coming home Sunday around dinner time, so hopefully I'll survive until then 😜..

But I have my Mom, so it will be okay for now 😊.

If you can't tell, I have a super strong attachment to my parents.. How I will ever leave home when I'm an adult, I have no idea 😆


Heres todays Bible verse!

Romans 12:12

Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.

Remember, God made YOU!

1,000 Buddy Slot Update, Vol. 195!

Hey Jammers! graciepopstar91 here with the Bi-Weekly Animal Jam update post! So without further ado, lets jump right into the update!


In honor of April Fool's Day this weekend, AJHQ will be releasing some 'Wild Weekend Ridiculous Rares'! Today's rares are,

A Rare Cheese Hat, which reminds me of Babybel cheese..

It has the red wax and everything 😌

And Rare Giant Paws!

You can get the Rare Cheese Hat from Jam-Mart-Clothing for 800 gems, and Rare Giant Paws from the Diamond Shop for 3 diamonds!

Be sure to get yours today ^.^.

Now for the second page!

Theres a new den in the Diamond Shop, called Liza's Garden. I'm not the biggest fan of this den, due to the fact that it's a little too huge.. It will probably take me a lot of time to decorate it 😜.

Now for page 3!

As predicted from recent photo leaks that Famous Jammers have put up, all members now have 1,000 buddy slots! In honor of this, AJHQ has been buddying a bunch of Jammers, including me, Sarah, and Ja 😊. Congrats you two! Hope you have a great time uh- following AJHQ? 😆

Because we now have 1,000 buddy slots, the Buddy List has changed a bit, and now looks like this,

When it used to look like this,

It used to say the players animal-tag-names, but now it just says the username. This is probably incase a lot of buddies come on all at one time, it won't crowd up your Buddy List. 

I'm not sure what I think of the new format. I like the old one, but in the long-run, it would crowd up your list, if you have 1,000 buddies, and half of them are on 😋. 

What do you think of the new format? Is it better, or worse than the new one?

Now for the next page!

On the left side of this page, it says how Cheetahs have returned from their travels! Their now zooming back into Jamaa! <--- Corny joke, please do not listen to those, their very.. Corny 😬.

On the right side of the page, it says that there is a new game in Animal Jam, called Fast Foodies. This game is actually in 'Animal Jam - Play Wild!' and I really liked it. But this one in Animal Jam, is kind of hard to play on a laptop, because you have to use the track-pad. But it still is a very cute game. Heres some screenshots I got of it!

When you click 'Play!' on the Fast Foodies game, this screen will pop up, and you can select a stage to play. The Sarepia Theater stage is locked, and to unlock it, you have to play all the Juice Hut levels.

Heres the level select screen! When you press 'Play!', this screen will come up,

And it tells you how to play it.

On Level 1, your first goal is to get 60 gems total. To reach the goal, you have to give the 'customers' their orders quickly. If the time clock goes in the red-zone, you may get less gems.

The orange will most-likely be your 'customers' first order, and to give them the orange, put your paw 'cursor' over the orange, hold down, and drag the orange to the 'customer'.

Then click on the gems!

In Level 2, you'll have this pineapple bowl, that you have to drag fruit into.

I hope this helps for when you first start playing Fast Foodies!

Now for page five.

On the left side, it says that the Spring Festival adventure is back! I got to play it a bit with AJHQ, so I took a few screenshots so you could see the adventure.

In the adventure, theres a huge giant egg.. Is that the bunny's house? 😜

In the adventure, you really just find the eggs, and get a prize after doing so. Very similar to Lucky Clovers, but spring related, instead of St. Patricks Day related.

On the right side of the page, it says that the April Fool's Day Party is back! I have not yet been to this years April Fool's Day Party, but I'm guessing it will be the same as last year, with the flipped castle, and the wacky item store. I can't wait to go there this year 😄.

Now for the next page!

On the left side of this page, it says that theres a new exhibit in the Conservation Museum! It's called 'Speed In Nature'. 

In this exhibit, you can watch the animated Cheetah video, 'All Tied Up', and see some cool photos! 

On the right side of this page, it says that Snow Leopards will soon be returning from their travels. 

Are you excited for the returning Snow Leopards? Be sure to comment down below!

Now for the last page!

If you get an Animal Jam Retail Gift Card, you will get a Spring Bunny! 

I remember Spring Bunnies came out about two years ago, and I was able to get one then. When they came out two years ago, you only got the Carrot Couch, Carrot Table, and Carrot Chair, but it seems that this time AJHQ will also give you a Carrot Wardrobe, and Carrot Lamp. 


What did you think of this weeks update? I thought it was pretty neat! I can't wait to decorate my new den, and play a bit more of Fast Foodies. 

Heres todays Bible verse!

2 Corinthians 1:3-4

All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.

Remember, God made YOU!

Over Rated Animals and Items, and Animals That Should Be Used MORE+An Update

                      Hey Jammers! Sarahkey8 here with another post!
But ay, they are good for gems

On the old daily spin, I got diamonds a bunch on this member spin, I get gifts, cri!

*clears throat*
Anyways, today we are talking about over rated animals and items!
Spikes are just... over rated.......
Sure they look cool on somethings
Seriously though, if you think about it, its pretty weird, especially sense spikes on some animals glitch into their HEADS.
I mean seriously, I think studded collars are much safer.. 

The 2nd over rated item has got to be a tiki mask. I have NO idea why those things are rare! I mean they are so ughly. Image result for animal jam tiki mask
Who wants to wear that.... ughly ughly UGHLY
Gross, I cant even talk about it anymore!
The third is Elf Bracelets,
Image result for animal jam elf bracelets
They look cool, I'll give you that, but almost every single Warrior Cat roleplayer wears them! 
And now the last overrated thing. 
Arctic Wolves 

They are everywhere.
Literally. Idk why, I mean foxes look good in almost every item, armor looks amazing on them. 
Im not saying its bad to have an arctic wolf,
But there is something in common with all those arctic wolves... I'll leave you to find it! 
Comment Call What do all the arctic wolves have in common?
I didn't even do it on accident XDD
And now we move onto the next subject!
Animals that should be used more! (In no order)

1. Deer 
I made this look in a matter of seconds.
Deer are really cool, but pretty much only used in the Jamaalidays 
 Even though they are really cool (Right Lost? XD)  
#Be a deer!
(Speaking of deer they are leaving today!

2. Otters 
Like deer, otters are amazing! But for some reason they are almost never used! Items fit pretty well on them, and they are just plain cute.
3. Raccoons
Like all of above, raccoons are really cool! When I first joined Animal Jam they were pretty popular, but now not so. I don't why! They are adorable!
4. Foxes 
JUST like raccoons, when I joined Animal Jam they were very popular! But now, they aren't like the 'extinct' animals as I like to call them, (Like Sharks, Dolphins, Octopus, Rhino's, Monkeys, and Elephants,) I see more penguins then I do foxes!
5. Pigs 

This really amazes me, pigs were the first non member diamond shop animal, and the first nm animal AJHQ had released in a long time! There was a GIANT hype about them, and now nobody plays them! And some nms still complain about animals being member.
If AJ released another nm animal, it would end up like the pig, and people would continue to only play bunnies, wolves and penguins.

The reason why Giraffes aren't on this list is because, they made a giant comeback when AJHQ made them non member, I never ever EVER saw them before AJHQ made them nm. Now I see them lots, everywhere!   

As some of you may or may not know, my little brother who is 6 months old, Boo Boo No his name is not actually Boo Boo thats his nickname XDD
is having surgery today, my mom said at like 12:00 in the afternoon. (Central timing) So please pray for him..
Something was bleeding in his stomach, so they have to take out some of his intestines, my mom and Boo might have to stay like a week depending on how much they will have to take out..
My mom said I'll think about it when I asked her if I could show you guys a picture of him! XDDD

And I will not be doing the Blogger Portal, because I need to write chapters for Gracie's Story Contest! So once I'm done with that, I will write it!
So please pray for Boo! 

Well, that's all for now Jammers!  And remember! Stay safe, Jam On, Play Wild, and remember God made you! Byeee!
