On This Day In Club Penguin History – January 4

On the 4th of January Club Penguin has updated in 2008, 2011, and 2013. In 2008 there was a new wig catalogue, a new clothing catalogue, and the 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, the Coins For Change 2012 results were announced, plus so much more!

The first update in 2008 was the wig catalogue being updated. Back in this time period the Gift Shop (now the Clothes Shop) had two different catalogues: the penguin style, which was updated every month, and the wig catalogue, which was updated every other month. The wig catalogue released in January 2008 featured two new wigs, The Flutterby and The Sunstriker.


The new clothing catalogue contained new winter wear such as the Snow Shovel and Fuzzy Boots. It also contained some fiesta themed items such as 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 at how tiny pins used to be!

Moving on now, in 2011 there was only one update. The Coins For Change 2010 results were posted on a billboard at the Beach. In total 12,261,193,800 coins were donated.


As for 2013, a whole lot of updates occurred. 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 just miscellaneous wear. It is also worth noting that this was the first clothing catalogue to contain the Arctic White colour, the pages of clothing for all players, and a brand new penguin design.

Another clothing related update on this day in 2013 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.

Also on this day in 2013 Club Penguin announced the Coins For Change 2012 results. In total penguins donated 13.7 billion coins.

Another update was The Penguins That Time Forgot returning 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.

The final updates in 2013 were the postcards being updated and the book “Agent Rookie’s Secret Mission” was now unlockable. The featured postcards now listed the “Let’s Explore!”, “Find the Pin”, and “Penguins Time Forgot” postcards.
