Memory Lane

Hi Jammers! Scooter is back for this one time post! ^-^

How has everyone been?! I have't visited Jamaa in a long time, and when I recently logged into my account, a lot of things have changed.

Animal is almost getting... well how do I put this... kiddish? Like, I know it is a kids game, but everything seems more kiddish.

For instance, instead of the old days where you had to run and explore Jamaa to find a game, now you just click the game button at the top and start playing. 

I liked the olden days of Jamaa, when the Alphas were cool, mysterious beings, and not, umm, this..
I liked when more people had to make creative dens with stores, and fashion shows.
I like when the animals were normal sizes *cough* Lynx *cough*
I liked when there were new lands always coming soon.
I liked when the new animals were cool, unlike the llamas. Seriously, we have llamas before zebras..
I liked when you had just enough inventory spots for your great items, now with adventures there are so many items out there that there aren't enough spots.
I liked when nonmember and members were treated the same, and the Diamond shop wasn't the source of every new item in the Jamaa Journals.
I liked the old Animal Jam.

Anyway, that was kind of a rant, but can you relate to my points?

It has been over a year now that I have left this blog. This blog was great, it literally made me laugh, cry, and all the in-between. 
I know that we all miss our friend Blu the Monkey...
But he is doing just fine. You can visit my crowded den to see some of his pals.
I miss the Animal Jam Sky Blog too, but unfortunately I am still not coming back.
It was fun while it lasted.
Remember the Jammer and Pet of the Month?
Remember the Night of the Phantom Fashion Shows?
Remember the Journey of the Wolves movies?
Remember the Easter Egg Blog hunts?
Remember how each month I would make a new wallpaper for the blog?
Remember the giveaways?
Remember the Blu the Monkey posts?
Remember the Jamaa Journal countdowns?
Remember the Contests?
Remember this week in Jamaa's History?
Remember the fun?
Ya... me too ^-^

Below are some of my favorite posts:

Don't worry, you can keep the fun going by exploring the Animal Jam Sky Blog! Look at the Beta page, the Sky dictionary, read some Blu the Monkey comics, see the Jammer of the Month hall of fame, and much more! Enjoy and goodbye jammers! 

Have fun and happy jamming!

Play Wild App

Hey Jammers!
Have you heard that the Play Wild, Animal Jam's new app, is open for Beta Testing?
Guess what, I am a Beta Tester, and it is great :3
Today, I am going to show you a behind-the-scenes look at the Play Wild App!
First off, the Beta Testing s only for Android devices unfortunately, but when the real app is released it will be open for all devices! Hooray (\^o^/)

Images of Play Wild:

The Play Wild app brings the Animal Jam experience in a fun new way, mobile! The image shown on the left is a picture of the Play Wild log in screen.

The famous Mira returns to the Play Wild App! Did you know that if you gather a bunch of wolves, bunnies, or monkeys, the Mira statue actually dances? Jamaa Township is the main section of Play Wild and Animal Jam, which contains the Den Shop, Clothing Shop, Club Geoz, and the Pillow Room.

The well-known Pillow room located in the Northern part of the Jamaa Township is a place to meet with friends or pretend to adopt an animal!

Coral Canyons, is the desert themed land in Jamaa. It contains buildings such as the Art Studio, the Den Depot shop, the Royal Ridge shop, and Epic Wonders. So far, none of these buildings have been released yet, but they are Coming Soon!

You can once again try to break the bridge in Coral Canyons. The fun mini-game Long Shot is available to play for gems.

In your den you can customize, play, and invite buddies over. There are tons of color schemes of flooring and wallpaper, with items available to buy at the Jam Mart Furniture Store. You can fully rotate each item too! So far, there is only one den available.

Sarepia Forest is a the nature center of Jamaa. You can explore mushrooms, frogs, firepits, and slides. It is certainly bigger than the Animal Jam version!

Sarepia Theater is the only open building/game/feature so far in Sarepia Forest. You can only go watch a select few of videos.

The Temple of Zios is an ancient ruin land to explore. In this land, you can currently on play the mini-game Falling Phantoms. Soon you will be able to enter the extraordinary buildings.

Finally, Crystal Sands is the last land available in the Beta Testing Period. You can slide down the waterslides, lay in the sun, and go swimming! The Aquarium and Juice Hut are both coming soon!

Play Wild App -- Beta Part 2

That is pretty much it! It is so much fun and they keep adding stuff. They are thinking of lots of new ideas, such as new animals not featured in Animal Jam! 
Have fun and happy jamming!!

AJHQ Ideas

Hey Jammers!
Scooter here again, with some cool ideas that AJHQ should/could do!
Below are 15 ideas that I have always thought were grrrrrreat!
  1. Switch an Animal: A couple years ago, Sea Turtles turned from member to nonmember. They should do this with a land animal! READ ARTICLE BELOW THIS!
  2. More "Only Parties": You know these types of parties. For Example, "Horses Only Party", "Monkeys Only Party", and so on. AJHQ should make more of them! ^-^
  3. Pets for every species in Jamaa: For every animal in Jamaa, there should be a pet for. For example, AJHQ should make a "Pet Horse" or a "Pet Seal". 
  4. Redo a Building: A couple years ago, AJHQ redid the Club Geoz into a new look. I feel like they should redo another building, such as the Conservation Museum or the Hot Cocoa Hut.
  5. Otter Plushies: AJHQ forgot to make Otter Plushies in the claw machines. We NEED them! 
  6. Open up Passages: AJHQ should open up the ice passage in Mt. Shiveer and other hiding spots!
  7. Make another underwater land: Don't you think the ocean lands are unpopular? They should add a new one, with a new shop, new background, and it would boost popularity of oceans and ocean animals. 
  8. New Animals: Of course, this is a given. They should make cool new animals, such as an armadillo, sloth, snakes, lizards, or even dogs and cats!
  9. New Building: There is room in Jamaa to make a new building. It could be a Music shop, clothing shop, or furniture shop.
  10. New Land: Make a new land, such as a Swamp or a Sky Land!
  11. New Den: Make a new den, not in the Diamond Shop for everyone! It could be a Cottage, Lake House, Cave, or even a Swamp!
  12. New Christmas Adventure: They have made a Halloween, and Thanksgiving one, so lets hope for a Christmas adventure!
  13. Thanksgiving Party: Come on, we have a party for every other holiday, why skip Thanksgiving?
  14. New Game:  Make a new Polar Bear game or something fun!
  15. Make more "Alpha Dens": They made a "Cosmo's Den. Why stop there? Make a "Graham's Factory" or "Liza's Hut".

So, now that we have layed out all the ideas... What now? Now, we take action :D
Here are three ways you can help make these possible:

  • Suggest in Jamaa: Around Jamaa there are purple suggestion feedback buttons, where you can post these ideas. I promise that they look at these!
  • Email AJHQ: This directly sends them your feelings, suggestions, and ideas. Just be careful not to send to many, they are very busy ;3
  • Tell your Buddies: Tell your friends to make suggestions like these, by yelling them in Jamaa, spreading it through Social Media, or telling them to look on this blog!

Thanks for your help, creativity, and support! Lets make Jamaa a better place!
Have fun and happy jamming!!
