Update: Looks like Club Penguin Support was incorrect! Jempenguin emailed Club Penguin inquiring about the merchandise. The reply from Club Penguin Support said it was unheard of. Then earlier my friend Troy7826 forwarded this newsletter from Disney. The code is in the email! You are free to use it on all of your penguins. The code to unlock the Tree Topper Hat is SURPRISE.
Keep in mind that the colour grey for penguins is used to model items, so keep that in mind rather than jumping to conclusions that this colour is coming soon for all penguins.
At last year’s Holiday Party one of the free items everyone could get for their penguin was the Tree Topper head item. Then two weeks ago I posted that this item is also now available as an unlock. Yesterday I started hearing reports about the code to unlock this item. Since I am always hesitant with posting codes (you may have seen me say I do not post codes requiring a purchase, such as book codes and magazine codes) I emailed Club Penguin to clarify how this code is obtained.
To be able to get the code yes you are indeed going to have to purchase merchandise. The specific one that you should be looking for is ‘Christmas 2012 Advent Calendar’. With this you should be able to get the code that you are looking for.
So that, ladies and gentleman, is how to unlock the Tree Topper Hat. Sure, many of you already know the code thanks to word of mouth, however like usual if you post it in the comments on here I will simply edit it out as I like to play fair. I’m sure many of us already have this item already, however. Who knows, maybe the regular version will make a comeback at the Holiday Party 2012 this year? What items do you think we’ll get for the holidays this year in the snowy island of Club Penguin?
