On This Day In Club Penguin History – January 16

On the 16th of January Club Penguin has updated in 2009 and 2014.

In 2009 Club Penguin updated two days in a row. There were updates on the previous day, the 15th of January, which I covered already, and then some more the following day. There second day of updates were to release a new pin and a new furniture catalogue.

The new pin released on this day in 2009 was the Taco Pin. This pin is Club Penguin’s 81st pin overall. It was located at the Snow Forts on the left leg of the clock tower. This is the third pin to be hidden in that room.

As for the new furniture catalogue, it featured fiesta themed items such the Mexican Blanket, Terracotta Sun, Terracotta Pot, Wall Gecko, Mexican Rug, and Piñata.


The updates in 2014 are a mix of big and small. The bigger updates were a new furniture and igloo catalogue, the new treasure book added to the Clothes Shop, and The Penguins That Time Forgot returning to the stage. The minor updates were new igloo music, the featured postcards selection being updated, and the Time Trekker being placed at the Snow Forts to prepare for the 2014 Prehistoric Party.

The January 2014 Furniture and Igloo catalogue was the first of its kind to contain both igloos and furniture in a single catalogue. Previously Club Penguin had two separate catalogues, one for furniture and one for igloos. The furniture catalogue was updated monthly and the igloo catalogue one was typically updated every two or three months. Since it is all now in a single catalogue, it gets updated monthly. Aside from that big change it contained both new and returning prehistoric themed furniture items. Some of the new items were the Dino Dig Site, Slab Sofa, Bone Bridge, and Fish Fossil. Some of the returning items were the Dinosaur Bones, Dinosaur Skull, and Cavern Chair.

Another update in 2014 was the 20th treasure book being added to the Clothes Shop. Even though it was released back in September 2013 Club Penguin never updated the treasure book in the Clothes Shop to display the new one until now. The treasure book was exclusive to new membership card unlocks only.

The third and final big update on this day in 2014 was The Penguins That Time Forgot returning to the Stage for a fifth time. The play is about Chester, a penguin who buys a box and special hat. He’s ends up being brought back in time when he uses it.

There were three minor updates in 2014, too. To match the stage play Club Penguin brought back the Penguins That Time Forgot postcard. They also updated the igloo music for the month with prehistoric themed tracks and added Gary’s Time Trekker to the Snow Forts to prepare for the upcoming Prehistoric Party.
