On This Day In Club Penguin History – January 4

On the 4th of January in Club Penguin’s past there have been updates in 2008, 2011, and 2013. In 2008 there was a new wig catalogue, a new clothing catalogue, and Club Penguin’s 50th pin was released. In 2011 the results for Coins For Change 2010 were announced. Finally, in 2013 there were many updates such as a new clothing catalogue, Coins For Change 2012 results, and so much more!

In 2008 there were three different updates. The wig catalogue was updated. For the the newer players, the Gift Shop, now called the Clothes Shop, used to have two different catalogues: the penguin style that was updated every month, and the wig catalogue that was updated every other month. The final wig catalogue was released in November 2008, when Club Penguin announced that beginning in January 2009 they would be discontinuing it and wigs would then be for sale in the penguin style instead.


The wig catalogue released in January 2008 featured two new wigs, The Flutterby and The Sunstriker. The new clothing catalogue had new winter wear items such as the Snow Shovel and Fuzzy Boots. It also contained some fiesta themed items including the Winter Poncho, Matador Outfit, and Flamenco Dress.


The final update in 2008 was the 50th pin being released. It was the Snow Shovel Pin, now called the Red Snow Shovel Pin. It was hidden in the Boiler Room. This was the second pin to be hidden there. Look how tiny pins used to be!

Moving on to 2011! That year there was one update. The Coins For Change results for 2010 were posted on the billboard at the Beach. In total 12,261,193,800 coins were donated.


In 2013 there were many updates. Since it was the first Friday of the month (Club Penguin used to update on Fridays instead of Thursdays) a new Penguin Style catalogue was released. There was not any specific theme to the new items, it was more of miscellaneous wear. It is also worth noting that this was the first clothing catalogue to contain the Arctic White colour, the page of items for all players, and a new modern penguin design.

Another clothing related update on this day was the 19th treasure book being released. Unlike past treasure books, this one featured no new items. Instead it was a combination of items from past treasure books.

Moving on from items to other updates, also on this day Club Penguin announced their results from Coins For Change 2012. In total penguins donated 13.7 billion coins.

Another update was The Penguins That Time Forgot returned to the Stage. This was the fourth time the play was shown. Slightly related, Club Penguin updated their homepage to advertise that month’s party, the first ever Prehistoric Party. Login screens were also added to advertise the party.

There were two other updates. The postcards were updated, as the featured postcards were now “Let’s Explore!”, “Find the Pin”, and “Penguins Time Forgot”. The final update was that the Agent Rookie’s Secret Mission book was now unlockable.
