CPIP Item!! + New Book

Sorry I’m a bit late, I injured my hand badly so it’s hard to type & stuff.

Anyway, the CPIP item has been released! It’s a cool red Builder’s Hat! When you dance with it you drill with a red jackhammer! 😀


I’m satisfied with it, but a few people are complaining about it. 🙄

It suits CPIP perfectly. Clean, new, updated. Not some ugly t-shirt with CPIP all over it in big letters (although that’d been cool too 🙂 ).
It really reminds me of the test servers…

A new book also came out today. The three winning stories have been added to the newest addition to the the Book Room, Penguin Tales Spring 08.

The stories are ok. Not as good as last year’s, but still worth reading.

Don’t forget to read yesterday’s post too!

That’s all for now, I’ll keep you updated. 😉

New Newspaper

The new newspaper came out today.

The Book Room Writing Contest winners were announced. There are also sneak peeks of the three stories inside.

The Igloo Contest winners were announced too.

I’ve decided to post a picture from the Aunt Artic column as well, because… I want to. 😛

I know I said I wouldn’t be posting the user-written articles anymore, but I just had to post this one. It’s set an all new level of boredom for me. Go ahead, read it & weep.

While reading the other user-written article, I noticed the strange illustration above it. It would be cool if there was a giant book you could stand on in CP. Maybe they could add a new room to the Book Room for a party, like they did with the Treetop Forts.

Talking about the Treetop Fort, I would like to correct myself. On a certain post, I talked about the party room. I have since learnt that for the Medieval Party, it’s real name was the ‘Treetop Fort’. I didn’t bother updating it, but now that I found some old pictures I decided to add this pic to the post:


Now that I’m fixing my errors, I’d also like to point out that it wasn’t only yellow puffles that appeared in that tree. Every type of puffle could come out.

Anyway, back to the new newspaper.

This week’s lame tour section was about igloos.

This week’s artwork is pretty good.

The illustration for the poem is awesome. 😆

The timetable looks pretty empty, but I’m sure there are more surprises in June waiting just around the corner. The CPIP item & the new book are coming out tomorrow too, so we won’t have nothing to do. 😉

And last, but not least, I’d like to show you a picture I never published. I took the picture on my aunt’s computer, but I forgot to send it to mine. The next day CP deleted this article, so I couldn’t get a picture. I was on my aunt’s computer again today, and I remembered to send the picture this time. It’s a bit late, but what the hay. Behold! The best April Fools prank ever! (This article is authentic. CP played a prank on all of us. If you don’t get the joke, just comment and I’ll explain.)

Don’t forget to read the CPIP item post below this too!

That’s all for now, I’ll keep you updated. 🙂

Panfu

I know I haven’t been doing game reviews lately, but I just found a new game & wanted to share it with you guys.

Name: Panfu

Website: Click here!

Notes:

  • To move, click on the spot you want to walk to & your panda will go there. You can also wave, sit, use animated emoticons (which make sounds too) & throw water balloons. It’s a bit like Club Penguin, but you’ll grow to like this game after a while.
  • Some words like Club Penguin & Runescape are blocked for some reason, so I don’t recommend using them in case you get muted.
  • There are lots of fun games to play hidden around Panfu. Have you found them all?
  • You get your own tree house, but you can’t customise it without paying for a Gold Package.
  • If you buy a Gold Package you can buy clothes for your panda to wear. There is a wide variety of clothes to choose from.
  • There’s a new event every day! Check the notice board under the game screen to keep up-to-date on what’s going on.

My thoughts:

This game does need some getting used to. I remember at the start I was really angry about them “copying CP”. But it gets fun after a while, & I find myself already addicted. 😛

Important: There is also a Panfu forum. I’m a moderator there. It’s just starting off, but it’d be great if you joined! Click here to go to it. Remember to read the rules! 😉

That’s all for now, I’ll keep you updated.

New Catlogs, New Pin, New Item

Three new catalogs came out today.

The puffle furniture one was a bit of a letdown, but I like the koi fish.

The furniture catalog is cool. There are around 6 new items & a few returns.

The igloo catalog has a new pink castle igloo available.

A new pin has also come out. You have to make it with Gary’s latest invention, the Anvil Maker 3000.

Have you found the hidden free item yet? CP have brought back the Wizard Hat. It’s at the Lighthouse.

In other news: I met one of the judges for the igloo contest in my igloo. They don’t say much, just walk around the room & leave.

Don’t forget to read the post about the new newspaper below this too!

That’s all for now, I’ll keep you updated. 😉

New Newspaper

A new newspaper came out today.

There’s more information about the igloo contest inside. Speaking of igloos, have you seen the sneak peek of the new furniture catalog yet? If not, look below (click to enlarge).

The Medieval Party has also been extended, and the Book Room Writing Contest winners will be announced in  next week’s paper, then will then be published in the Book Room the day after.

This week’s lame tour section is about the Coffee Shop & Book Room. The only interesting bit was the ‘Did you know?’ section. One of Gary’s first ever inventions was the coffee machine in the Coffee  Shop. He programmed it to play music & make coffee.

There’s a weird comic strip on Aunt Artic’s page:

There’s also a picture of a penguin with the Beta Hat on the next page. It’s strange that CP went for so long without even mentioning that hat, and now ever since the 2005-06 yearbook was added to the Book Room they’re putting it everywhere.

The user-written articles stink this week. I find myself wondering why I’m posting them.

This week’s puzzle is like sudoku, except with puffles instead of numbers. I find it too hard (I never was good at these kind of puzzles).

Does anyone know what happens when you complete it? (A picture would also be appreciated.)

In other news: I’ve updated the Rare Flower Pot Journal again. Go check it out!

That’s all for now, I’ll keep you updated!
