11 Club Penguin Facts You Probably Didn't Know

Written by: || Tags:
So you think you know Club Penguin? Well, you may... but do you know these 11 Club Penguin facts?

Let's put your knowledge to the test. I have been surfing the internet to find some interesting facts and information about the famous MMORPG that has changed the world since 2005. The legitimacy for some of the CP claims that you find on the web are questionable, but I've looked through all of them and it seems that they are all accurate, so no worries. Let's get on with the Club Penguin facts you probably didn't know, shall we?

    1) The first red puffle was discovered on Rockhopper Island, and was named Yarr by the island's very own Captain Rockhopper. He is still alive and well to this day!

    2) The most decorated party of all time was the 2012 Holiday Party.

    3) Club Penguin did not advertise at all until they were bought by Disney―it was all simply word of mouth. Their first TV ad, "Disney - Club Penguin" aired for the first time in December 2011.

    4) The theme song for the popular mini-game Thin Ice was created by former Club Penguin moderator, Screenhog.

    5) Club Penguin was originally going to be to launched in 2010. Thank goodness the date was changed to five years earlier!

    6) The first original Club Penguin party, excluding the Beta Test Party, was the Halloween Party of 2005.

    7) There were no free items during the 2005 Halloween Party, and only two decorated rooms. Boring! But luckily, the game knew what it lacked, and free items and other interesting features were added in later parties.

    8) On July 13, 2011, the membership prices were officially raised to $7.95 a month, $39.95 for 6 months and $59.95 for 12 months. This would be the first time the game would alter their membership prices.

    9) Club Penguin's original newspaper design took over 100 hours to make, due to only ONE artist working on it and the complex design.

    10) The Christmas Tree pin from December 14, 2006 was the first pin to cost money! It cost 50 coins and it was not found on the island, only the newspaper, dubbed Penguin Times at the time.

    11) And finally... Club Penguin have had a grand total of five different logos from October 2005 - present, and only one logo in a different language: Russian!
