Animal Jam Stickers: App Review

Hi jammers! I’m here with a review of the new Animal Jam Stickers App! Enjoy!

You can get the Animal Jam Stickers App, for free on the App Store. Once in game though, you only have access to a certain amount of the stickers. To receive all the stickers, you must pay $1.99. I think this can be a little unreasonable because when you first download the stickers you think that you can receive all the of them for free.  That is the main thing I dislike about this app.

For the most part though, I like all the stickers. For the most part I like the emotes and the animals. I think the graphic quality is really good and I wish they would add some of the emotes that are just seen in the app, in-game as well.

Here is a picture I took of some of the stickers! (Sorry, it’s kind of blurry.)

I give this app 3 out of 5 Mira’s (this is how I rate things!) Thanks for reading jammers! See you in Jamaa!

Pixel Place

Hi jammers! Today, I have a post on the re-released Pixel Place den. Enjoy!

Pixel Place was originally released on June 23rd, 2016. It left for a short while and returned very recently on August 31st, 2017. This two-story den is completely made up of colored cubes representing pixels. Everything is made up of pixels from the grass to the staircase!

Here is what it looks like inside the den. (Please mind all the items.)

The den is very colorful and pretty. I think it is a good den for someone just starting AJ. It has a moderate amount of indoor and outdoor space. The den as I mentioned before is 2 stories and an outdoor patio deck on the 2nd floor. Outside there is a river that cuts through the left side of the property, with a bridge that leads across it. There is also a mysterious stone – like structure in the den that can be seen in some of the AJ Seasonal Adventures. A pixel forest surrounds the property.

The river outside the den.

I think in all this den is very bright, airy, and beautiful and I believe that it’s one of AJ’s most creative dens.

Jamaa Journal: Volume 203

Hello jammers! Sorry, I haven’t blogged in awhile, I’ve been very busy with camps and vacations this summer. Today I have the newest AJ update to show you guys. This update is really cool, personally. Enjoy the post!

The new updates to the jammer wall, are the main new thing in this new update. The new features Animal Jam added to the jammer wall are pretty neat. You can add emojis to your wall and you can also add your animal’s picture. The best part about the picture is that it moves. Cool, right? You can also like people’s walls now, just like how you can like people’s masterpieces. Sadly, you can only add 3 masterpieces to your wall, though.

Everyone is on their jammer wall now!

 

 

 

 

 

 

This weekend only in Jamaa, you can get portals in the Diamond Shop for only one diamond that lead to the different worlds of Jamaa like Jamaa Township, Sarepia Forest, Mt. Shiveer, Kimbara Outback, Appondale, etc. So far, I have gotten the Jamaa Township, Crystal Sands, and Appondale portals. Which ones have you gotten?

One of the final Alpha den’s (not sure if Tavie is going to have one) is Graham’s Observatory. This den definitely reflects Graham the Monkey Alpha’s personality. There are piles of bananas and tools everywhere! I like the den though, I think Animal Jam did a great job with it overall. I just wish the rooms were a little bigger.

Pets Koalas are here, finally! I think this pet is so adorable! I have three already; WaterCrystal, EarthPebble, and FireTree. I also like how you can make the koala look like you, with some of the accessories that AJ provides.

Jamaalidays in July! Hooray! From July 24 – 28th this year you can go to the Jamaaliday Jam party. You can adopt pet reindeer, buy Jamaaliday items, and have fun in the snow!

Tiki Trouble is a very fun adventure that is available to both members and non members.  The objective is to find three pearls that have the power to drive away the phantoms from the oceans of Jamaa. Each pearl is guarded by one Tiki Statue. You have to get the pearls from all three tikis before the tide comes in (15 minutes.) The prizes in Tiki Trouble are really good! I got Rare Nerd Glasses once! I definitely recommend this adventure.

The Alphas have found a new heartstone and soon Flamingos will be available in Jamaa. Hooray!

Mystical Armor has returned to Jamaa and is available is the Diamond Shop in Jamaa Township. If you want to get the whole set of Mystical Armor it costs 9 diamonds (Mystical Armor, Mystical Gauntlets, Mystical Amulet, Mystical Helmet, and Mystical Tail Armor.)

Otters will be traveling on August 3rd, so make sure you can get an otter while they are still available. You have 7 days!

You can now get Animal Jam Lunchboxes and Backpacks at Toys’R’Us! I think this is a really cool addition to Animal Jam’s Merchandise Line. They look really well – made as well.

Pandas are back! Hooray! Non members and members can now both buy pandas again, for 1,000 gems.

You can now adopt a pet panda at the Diamond Shop in Jamaa Township for only 3 diamonds. You can dress them up in some pretty cute accessories including Hypno Glasses, a Asian Conical Hat, a Red Panda Hat, and a Bee Costume.

Now when you get an Animal Jam Retail Gift Card (at stores like GameStop, Toys’R’Us, Walmart, Winn.Dixie, CVS Pharmacy, and Target) you can also receive four exclusive falcon items. A Falcon Archway, A Kestrel Armchair, A Peregrine Sofa, and A Falcon Perch.

Jammers (both non member and member) can adopt up to 1000 pets! I’m kind of wondering where you would put all of them though, it would probably be pretty laggy if you put them all in one den…

If you enjoy holding clans, you definitely want to consider picking up Greely’s Hideout for 7 diamonds from the Diamond Shop in Jamaa Township. This den is also fantastic for hide and seek!

There is a new pet available in Eggstravaganza! Buy eggs (3 diamonds each, available to all jammers) from the Diamond Shop today, to try to figure out what it is.

The new Call of the Alphas party is now available in the Party List. If you are impatient (like me) you can buy the book Call of the Alphas, and find the code in the book. The code gets you a smaller version of the book and you are able to join the party at all times. If you can’t get the book try to find someone who has the book in their den.

I hope you enjoyed this new post. See you in Jamaa!
