On the 5th of April there’s been updates in 2007, 2008, 2012, and 2013. In both 2007 and 2012 the April Penguin Style and an Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt began. In 2008 Aqua Grabber was updated. Also in 2012 there was a new pin, a new treasure book, and a new field op. In 2013 Operation Hot Sauce began, the Spy Phone was given a new design, there was a new pin, and so much more.
In 2007 the April Penguin Style was released and the second ever Easter Egg Hunt began. The theme of the April Penguin Style was musical instruments. Items such as the Tuba, Electric Guitar, and Violin were released for the first time ever. At the egg hunt, eight well decorated and camouflaged eggs were hidden around the island. If you found them all you would be able to collect a prize, the Blue Bunny Ears.
In 2008 Aqua Grabber received an update. You could no longer salvage pieces of Rockhopper’s ship. Instead you could collect the pearl treasure.
Just like in 2007, in 2012 there was a new clothing catalogue and an easter egg hunt. That wasn’t all the updates, however. There was also a new pin hidden, a new field op, and a new treasure book.
The main theme of the new items in April 2012’s Penguin Style was different environmental items for Earth Day as well as some casual springtime wear. For example, one of the items in this catalogue was the Green Recycle T-Shirt.
Another big update in 2012 was that year’s Easter Egg Hunt. The prize that year was Bunny Ears again, except this time they were yellow.
Also in 2012 a new pin was released. This pin is the 200th pin to be released. The pin I am referring to is the Easter Basket Pin. It was the eighth pin to be hidden at the Forest. There was also a new field op, the 76th one. You had to go to the Dance Lounge (arcade) and in the mini game you had to match your data with the firewall to break through the system.
The final update in 2012 was a new treasure book. It was the 16th one to be released. It contained exclusive items that could be unlocked with a code obtained from specific Club Penguin merchandise.
Moving on to 2013, the most recent year to have updates on the 5th of April. The biggest update that day was Operation Hot Sauce, or as it was known to non-EPF agents, Fun at the Cove. Operation Hot Sauce was a two week long EPF mission. This operation marked a new chapter of the EPF, as along with the mission, agents received a new spy phone that had an all new look and features. Fun at the Cove was a pizza party that got cancelled due to there being no hot sauce. The no hot sauce scenario happened because Herbert stole it all, which was what the operation was based on. Penguins had to collect evidence at the Pizza Parlour, track Herbert, and stop him.
Also on this day in 2013 the April edition of the Penguin Style was released. The theme of the new items was superheroes, in preparation of the 2013 Marvel Superhero Takeover. Login screens advertising the upcoming takeover were also updated.
Another update in 2013 was a new pin. It was the Bunny Rabbit Pin. It was located at the Dojo. It is Club Penguin’s 241st pin and was the second pin to be hidden in that room.
The rest of the updates in 2013 were rather minor. The featured postcards were updated, rooms such as Plaza and Mountain given sound effects, Squidzoid vs Shadow Guy & Gamma Gal returned to the Stage again, Club Penguin launched their Instagram account, the Snow Beta Hat was released, and finally Club Penguin tweaked their chat. It was given a slight new look, the prewritten suggestions were updated, and you could now type apostrophes.
