Liza the Panda Alpha

Hi jammers! We have two posts today, one was the Jamaa Journal Volume 203 and the second one (this one) is a post about Liza the Panda Alpha. Liza is personally my favorite main alpha. Enjoy!

Liza is the leader of the Alphas and the alpha of the pandas of Jamaa. Liza is very adventurous, and is often the Alpha who finds new lands such as Coral Canyons (2010), Mt. Shiveer (2011), and Appondale (2011.)

Animal Jam’s bio of Liza is below…

“Liza is pretty well known to the animals of Jamaa, since she personally welcomes everyone that arrives here and helps them get started on their adventures. Liza has always been a traveler and explorer too, and she vividly remembers the day her travels first took her to Jamaa.
She found a land besieged not only by Phantoms, but by internal conflicts as well. Rabbits and monkeys were always bickering, while koalas and tigers wouldn’t speak to each other at all; and it seemed as though the wolves didn’t get along with anybody. Even among the Alphas there was tension and suspicion. Liza has a talent for helping animals understand each other better, though, and she was the peacemaker who brought the Alphas together as friends. Their example soon spread to the other animals, and for a long time now Jamaa has enjoyed peace both inside and outside its borders. After the last major battle with the Phantoms, the rest of the Alphas set out to track these mysterious invaders back to their point of origin and learn more about them. Liza stayed behind, however, both to safeguard our home against further attacks, and to help the thousands of animals arriving here every day find their way around Jamaa Township.”

Liza is named after Eliza Scidmore, who was the first female member of the NGS (National Geographic Society.) Eliza Scidmore was an American writer and photographer who visited many different countries, just like how Liza the Panda visits lots of different Jamaa lands! Conicidence or not?

Fun Facts About Liza

  • Throughout 2010 and early 2011 Liza had a part of the newspaper called “Liza’s Answers” where Jammers were able to send in questions and Liza would answer them.  Neat, right?
  • Her favorite color is pink!
  • She is a Giant Panda.
  • Liza’s den is called Liza’s Garden.

Thanks to Animal Jam Wiki for more information about Liza! See you in Jamaa!

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!

Celestial Tea Shoppe

Hi Jammers! I hope you had an amazing 2016 and are ready to have an amazing 2017. Today, I will be talking about a store I made at my den called Celestial Tea Shoppe.  Enjoy!

Celestial Tea Shoppe has a pretty common cafe/restaurant design. When you enter screen-shot-2017-01-01-at-5-17-28-pmthere is an open sign.  Once you enter the shoppe there is a masterpiece that says “Celestial Tea Shoppe.” If you take a right screen-shot-2017-01-01-at-5-16-14-pmturn you come to the main area. There is a clover table, a paradise table, a lily pad table, and a carrot table. The clover and paradise table are inside while the lily pad and carrot table are outside on the patio. On the walls inside are three different masterpieces. One says screen-shot-2017-01-01-at-5-15-53-pm“East To West”, another says “Titanium”, and the final one says “Limitless.” There is a cafe counter that has log benches you can sit on and watch your tea being made. In the area where your tea is made there is a 1 cocoa machine and 2 smoothie machines. The Cocoa Machine is made to make a regular tea. The smoothie machines are used to screen-shot-2017-01-01-at-5-16-27-pmto make an iced tea. We have a kitchen also that has another cocoa machine in it. On the walls hang two masterpieces one has rainbow lines another says “Courageous.”

Every week at Celestial we have 14 different unique flavored teas you can choose from. For example this week from 1/1/17 – 1/7/17 our flavors are:

  1. Apple
  2. Blueberry
  3. Chamomile

  10. Peppermint
  11. Pumpkin
  12. Toffee
  13. Vanilla

You can order your tea by going on my jammer wall. To order your drink you can either oscreen-shot-2017-01-01-at-5-27-54-pmrder while you’re at my den or outside my den in other parts of Jamaa. If you are outside my den I will jam – a -gram you when your tea is done. To order your drink on my jammer wall you first choose a flavor that is being featured that screen-shot-2017-01-01-at-5-31-35-pmweek. Then you type what size (small, medium, large) and what type of warmth (cold, warm, hot) you would like your tea to be. The picture on the right is a good example of what your order should look like.

Thank you for reading my blog post! If I keep blogging weekly and I keep doing Celestial Tea Shop I will make sure to add the flavors of the week at my shop into my posts. If not I will always having the weekly flavors on my jammer wall! Thanks again!

Feast of Thanks

Hi! I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Feast of Thanks [Thanksgiving.] Today, I have a post on some fun things you can do with your buddies and friends, today! Enjoy!

One idea is to do Twist and Turns or another Jamaa adventure with your buddies. Together in the spirit of Thanksgiving you can try and solve puzzles to save the land of Jamaa, from the phantoms!

screen-shot-2016-11-24-at-6-06-58-pm

Another idea, is that you can decorate your den for Feast of Thanks, then invite all of your buddies over for a party. You can eat lot’s of good food and have lot’s of fun. Together, you and your friends can be thankful for all your blessings.

screen-shot-2016-11-24-at-6-08-46-pm

I hope you all have a fantastic Feast of Thanks!

 

The Phantom Badlands

Hello jammers! It’s Marigold here with a post on the newest adventure in Jamaa called The Phantom Badlands. This post might contain some spoilers. Enjoy!

The Phantom Badlands is really fun but it takes a lot of thinking. Just like in the Hidden Falls Adventure, I used the written walk through. If I hadn’t used the walk through I probably wouldn’t have made it to the end of the adventure. Here is the link to the walk through.

In  the Phantom Badlands there are 3 paths you can take, the blue, red, or purple. So far I’ve only done the blue path. My least favorite part of the adventure is probably having to get through the Phantom Tar. My favorite part of the adventure is exploring the shrine at the end. The Phantom Spouts in this adventure reminds me of the Flame Spurts in the movie The Princess Bride. The Flame Spurts have a popping sound before it shoots fire, and the phantom spouts have bubbles before it shoots phantom goop.

One thing I found interesting about this adventure is the Mechachompers. The Mechachompers are the chomper plants that destroy phantoms in this adventure. In past adventures chomper plants have been called Underground Chomper from The Hidden Falls Adventure. In underwater adventure they are called Chomper Calms. Another interesting thing about this adventure are the Bounceshrooms. The Bounceshrooms are basically mushrooms that bounce you higher. The Bounceshrooms were also used in the adventure The Front Lines.

Here is a photo gallery of this adventure:
