Epic Den of the Week: 12/11/17

Hi jammers! It’s Marigold here with the Epic Den of the Week. This week will be visiting Glory888’s amazing den! Enjoy!

When you arrive at the den you are greeted by the tree stump chairs and table and a orange lobster claw.

I like to refer to this as the “beta shelf.” There is pottery, a robot (remember when they used to be only like 25 gems?), a race car, a fancy toy robot, and a sewing machine. I remember when they used to sell the glass shelves, jammers used them as like triple bunk beds in their family role plays.

Next is the stationary desk (you get this with the stationary set you get in real life) and a rocking horse. There are also star rugs, a globe, some plaques (not very visible in this photo), a cami plushie, and some other rare items and plushies.

This is beta shelf number 2. It includes a blue magma lamp, pink vase, emu egg, yarn, and a spiral lamp.

The living room is a beautiful array of couches and plants. There is also a beta computer and art easel. My favorite part of this room though is the bamboo plant on the coffee table.

Right outside is a beautiful spring display. There is a flower waterfall, two cactus plants, a vivid red paw mat, and a beautiful bird feeder.

Ahh.. the gardening set. Do any of you jammers who’ve been playing AJ for awhile remember this? The gardening set used to be sold at Jam Mart Furniture back in 2013. Glory was smart and kept all of this set. 4 years later the gardening set isn’t just beautiful but also seen as a beta (even though it technically isn’t.) I personally only have a strawberry and watermelon plant but the fact that Glory kept the whole set is amazing, considering at the time it wasn’t anything to special.

In the backyard, Glory has the three April Fool’s Day items. You probably don’t want to what the signs say not to do… just a warning… but if you really want to see what happens you can check it out for yourself.

This is just some of Glory’s amazing den! I hope you will check out this den! See you in Jamaa!

Jamaa Journal: December 1st, 2017: Volume 214

Hi jammers! I’m back here with the 214th volume of the Jamaa Journal! Enjoy!

There is a new adventure that has come to Jamaa! It’s called The Mystery Below and it is lead by the alphas Graham and Cosmo. The Alphas recently discovered some strange stones (Trials of Zios Adventure) and they found that it formed a map the showed a  forgotten city. So now in the Forgotten Archive (Temple of Zios) a second portal has opened and you can do this adventure to try and find the mystery below.

December is here and that means the Jamaalidays are here! So everyday in December, you can log into AJ and get some fabulous gifts including Masterpiece Tokens, Diamonds, and Jamaaliday Den/Clothing Items.

There is now Jamaa Alpha Jamaaliday Armor Sets at the Alpha Headquarters (Jamaa Township.) There is an armor set for all 6 of the main alphas (Peck, Greely, Sir Gilbert, Liza, Graham, Cosmo.) The one thing I don’t like about them is that all the sets are red, white, and green (common Christmas colors.) I personally celebrate Christmas, but for people who celebrate other winter holidays like Hanukkah (blue and white/silver) or Kwanzaa (red, green, black) there aren’t armor sets depicting those colors.

This December all AJ Members get a Jamaaliday Member Bundle including an Arctic Wolf, Arctic Fox, Snow Leopard, Pet Lynx, Ice Armor Set, and Winter Palace Den. Could AJ be bringing Monthly Member Gifts?

The Jamaaliday House is back! The Jamaaliday House is a great place to host your winter festivities or you could make it into a candy factory! This den is made completely out of candy and gingerbread. There is even a chocolate pool and s’mores campfire!

Deer have returned to Jamaa for the Jamaalidays! These popular animals are only 1,000 gems! Unfortunately, they are only available to members I think it’d be great if AJ to open up a winter related animal to non members. I think deer would be a great choice if they did end up doing that.

The Jamaaliday Rescue seasonal adventure is back! The phantoms always try to ruin the Jamaalidays  by stealing all the presents. The phantoms are like The Grinch multiplied. Does that make sense? I’m not sure how to write that, but whenever AJ talks about the phantoms trying to ruin the Jamaalidays by stealing presents and such I think of the phantoms being like The Grinch. Anyway, this adventure is personally one of my favorite ones.  You have to find your way to the middle and collect the stolen presents along the way. Good luck!

The awesome (sugary) Jamaaliday Jam Party is back. This party takes place in a Jamaaliday House Den and if your to lazy (like me) to make your own winter party for your friends you can just go to this one. It even has a few more things than the Jamaaliday House does. It has wafer slides and a gingerbread gift cart where you can buy gifts for your friends.

Pet Reindeer are back in Jamaa! You can buy them at the Jamaaliday Jam. The reindeer’s are super fun to play with and love trying to fly around. I defiantly recommend buying these pets!

Animal Jam Apparel is here! There are watches, pajamas, costumes, etc. The designs are definitely geared toward younger kids, which is fine because I don’t think as many  middle school students would wear an animal jam shirt/watch to school as elementary students would.

I hope you enjoyed the new Jamaa Journal! Keep calm and jam on!

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.
