On This Day In Club Penguin History – March 1

Happy March! On the 1st of March there were updates on Club Penguin in 2011, 2012, and 2014. In 2011 there was construction in the Pet Shop to give it a new design, in 2012 there were several updates such as a new clothing catalogue, and in 2014 a new item was available at the Fair’s prize booth.

There was only one update in 2011. The Pet Shop was going to be given an all new look. (the one you see in-game today, with a few exceptions) To prepare for this overhaul, construction in the room began.

There were multiple updates in 2012. The most obvious one would be Pay Day, as it was the first day of a brand new month. The second update was noticed as soon as penguins logged in – new loading animations! When things are loading on Club Penguin, you see a blue screen and a penguin either cart surfing, shovelling snow, or making pizza. These are the loading animations they added. Before this update it was just a basic white arrow that spun around and progress bar below it.

Another update in 2012 was the Life Vest item being added to the Beach for penguins to pick up, since February’s big event, Rockhopper’s Quest, was still happening. There was also the 71st field op, located on Rockhopper’s ship. The mini-game to complete the field op was repairing the system by guiding the bot. The final update in 2012 was the March 2012 Penguin Style being released. The clothing catalogue contained outfits to match every Puffle colour that existed at the time. The items were available for one month only.


In 2014 a new item was available at the Fair’s prize booth. It was the Cool Down Hat. All players could obtain it by redeeming 1,000 tickets. This was the final item to be released at the 2014 Fair.
