My Thoughts on the Wild Weekend Items 2019

I realize this is a love bug now, looking back at it. Please forgive me. LOL


Hello, everybody! I am back from camp and have been for a few days, now! All I got to say is... It was AMAZING, but very tiring, but AMAZING!

I know the Wild Weekends are not done yet, but this year Animal Jam has released some pretty crazy things. I mean, I guess it is called "WILD weekends" for a reason, but still. I wanted to show everything that has come out so far, and my thoughts on the them, so without further ado, let's get right into it!

So, on June 27, 2019 the Wild Weekend items came back, these are items that are only available for 4 days, (Thursday-Sunday) every week during the summer. This event has been coming back every year, since 2017, when it first started.

June 27-30, 2019 - The Forgotten Accessories Collection, these were a set of unreleased clothing items, and were sold in the diamond shop. 

Personally, I give these a 4 out of 10. I like the wheels, but the healing staffs and Capricorn necklace is kind of far fetched for me. I feel that these items are well, kind of against the Christian beliefs, as the healing staffs are kind of witch-crafty. The Capricorn necklace, which I didn't know until I read Gracie's post about it, is actually a horoscope sign, which has to do with examining the stars and such. Which, again is against Christian beliefs, so yeah. I am not thrilled about this Wild Weekend items, however I do have the whole collection, but as for me personally. I'll never be wearing the Capricorn necklace, or the healing staffs. 

July 4-7, 2019 - The Forgotten Den Items, which was a bunch of random unreleased den items, which were also sold in the diamond shop. 

I give this one a 6 out of 10. I really like the "For Sale," and "For Trade" signs. The Automobile Sofa is pretty cool, though I feel it's awfully big! And then we have the Blue Wold Mecha, which is just really big and well, VERY scary! If you click on the paw print on his shoulder, he lights up and strikes up lighting from his...arms? I really, don't know he is just creepy. The For Trade sign is the only non-member thing is this bundle and the Crab Throne and Automobile Sofa were the only things available in different colors. 

July 11-14, 2019 - Shops 'Til You Drop, was a collection of 4 shops, based on dens that are in Animal Jam. These were also sold in the Diamond Shop, and all 4 were member only.

I give this one a 8 out 10, I like them all, but the Haunted House one. (Top left) My favorite one is by far the Bounce House Shop. I wish they all came in different colors, as the Beach House Shop is the only one that came in different colors. However, if they all did come in different colors; I would be VERY broke...ahem... I already am! 

July 18-21, 2019 - Crazy Hair Days, was a collection of different styles hair, which have already been released, but this time they released them in different colors. These were released in Jam Mart Clothing. 2 out of the 12 were for non-members, (Dyed Spiked Hair and Dyed Hat and Curly Wig). All were sold for gems, between 300 and 1,000. Each of the styles came in 4 new colors.

I really liked this collection, therefore I'm giving it a 9.5 out of 10! The only reason why I am knocking .5 of a point off is because it's a lot at one time! I think for everything I spent like over 21,000 gems, which I didn't have many to begin with. It was crazy, my sister was nice enough to buy me what I didn't have though. Thanks my sista!! 

July 25-28, 2019 - Jamaaildays in July, collection. This was a bunch of both clothing items (gems) and den items (diamonds) that are from the Jamaailday collection. They released all of the colors of each items (including the Jamaailday socks, but these were taken out soon after being put in). I honestly couldn't tell you how long they were in there for, because I was at camp. I couldn't get on until Saturday of the sale. However, I saw that Gracie talked about it in her post. 

THIS WAS EXPENSIVE! I bought every color of the den items. I started off with like 86 diamonds, I ended up with like 6 or 7. :-( I was really sad, but overall I really enjoy the Jamaailday items, so in my opinion it was worth everything I spent on them. The clothing items make really good looks. I really wish I was able to get the socks, but I guess whatever. It is what it is. The Black and Red Jamaaiday Head Bow literally looks like a Minnie Mouse bow! I thought is was so cute! Overall, I give this one a 10 out of 10. I LOVE Animal Jam's Jamaailday items, and probably always will. 


It looks like that's all for today's post! Let me know what your favorite Wild Weekend Collection was so far in 2019. Thank you all for reading, and I'll see you all next weeeeeeeek! 

I also wanted to give a special thanks to Animal Jam Wiki for posting all the dates and Items, because I wouldn't have been able to remember when and what came out when. So, thank you! 

Today's Encouraging Quote:

Forgiveness is unlocking the door to set someone free and realizing you were the prisoner. - Unknown

Man, how much truth is in this quote. You may think the unforgiveness you're holding toward someone is affecting them, but in reality it's affecting you. You've locked yourself in a prison without even knowing it!

Today's Bible Verse: 

Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. - Jeremiah 33:3 (KJV) 

Remember, the best friend you have is Jesus Christ.

📙 History of the Trading System 📙

Hi Guys! :D
Welcome back to another blog post!
I hope y'all are having a wonderful week!
Currently I am writing this on the Saturday before this blog post gets published, because I will be at youth camp during the 22nd-27th!
So, I hope you guys enjoy this little post. :D
Today, I am going to be telling you the history of the trading system!
We all know, or well- most of us know, that the trading system is a huge part of Animal Jam!
Why? Because people can get their items that they want, by exchanging one of their items, for another item!
But I'm not sure if a lot of people know the history of the trading system! 🤔
Before we start, I'd like to give credit to the Animal Jam Wiki, because that will be my source I am using for today!
So now, enough talking, let's get into the blog post, shall we? 😊
Animal Jam had beta testing anytime around May or July 2010 - September 2010.
Believe it or not, trading did not come out during the beta testing!
The Trading System came out on March 31st, 2011.
So how did people trade items before March 31st, 2011?
Well, they used gifting instead!
So the trading system basically has always been here; but in a different way. 
This may surprise you, but there was actually once a real trading party!
It was called "Trading party" and it was one of the first parties in Animal Jam.
However, once Animal Jam introduced Jammer parties, they took it away.
Here's a picture of the Trading party!
Credit to the Animal Jam Wiki

Now, people refer to the trading party as one of the Jammer parties, which is really cool to me, but I think that it would be awesome to have this party back! It looks so cool!
If they wouldn't bring it back, I think it would be cool for them to 'display' it when animal jam does the beta party!
In March 2015, a huge change for all Jammers happened.
They used to not have a box that would pop up asking if they wanted to trade their items or not.
But in March 2015, they did!
This helped with 'Flash Trading' 
Flash trading is when somebody trades something very quickly, but declines as fast as they could.
Back then when they didn't have that box that popped up, the other person could scam them if they would accept quicker than the other person.
Trading has always caused drama, because people find out ways to scam.
Let's watch this video by Animal Jam to see how to trade!
 Okay, I have to admit, the voice is a little weird but...
So as you could see, there was never a box that asked you if you really want to trade that item or not.
You also had a smaller limit of items to trade!
Don't quote me on this, but I believe that there was only a limit of 4 items that you could try trading to another player.
On September 17th, 2015, they allowed you to trade up to 20 items!
That's a huge difference. :o
Did you know that trading pets wasn't always a thing?
On August 18th, they finally allowed you to trade pets.
Now, let's get onto glitches!
There was once a glitch where if a Jammer decided to trade somebody, and the other person declined after confirming the trade, the person that tried trading them would get the item they wanted anyway!
Luckily, this glitch was fixed.
There is/was a glitch that displayed/displays an incorrect item in the trade window that prevented/prevents someone to be able to trade.
I am not sure if this glitch still happens because it hasn't happened to me lately, but I might be wrong.
According to the Animal Jam Wiki, they said,
"There was an exploitable glitch where a Jammer would have their previous trade attempt sent in the next completed request instead of the item that was requested. This happened when the player received a message stating that the other Jammer "no longer has that item" when attempting to trade that other Jammer; then when the other Jammer sent a trade request to the player and they accepted it, the player's items from their previous trade attempt would be sent to the other Jammer instead of the item that the other Jammer requested. This glitch has since been fixed."
Well, I guess that's it for today guys!
I hope you enjoyed learning about the trading system!
It was really interesting for me to learn and read about this.
Also, credit to Graciepopstar91, she gave me the idea to do this blog post!
When I publish this blog post, I will be coming back the next day!
Bye guys! :D
Here's today's bible verse!
2 Corinthians 10:4
(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

Jamaalidays In July Update - 7/25/19

HELLOOOOOO JAM JAM'S! I'm here! I'm posting! But I am so so so so so tired. We went shopping for all the food we need for camp. Which means we had to buy food for like 50 people. And haul it all. It literally took 6 hours. I am so pooped, therefore I'm gonna try to make this post snappy. XD



The Jamaalidays in July are here at last! This year it's featured as this weeks wild weekend event. This means that the Jamaaliday Party is also back, which I'm pretty sure is making some people quite angry, and you'll find out why in a minute...

Here's the entrance to the party, which is the same as it always is, except I think that snowman in the corner is new.

Here's the den items that are in the shop! They're all the Christmas items that came last year in the Diamond Shop, which is pretty cool. But uhhhh- if you're a trading enthusiast, brace yourself for the next picture.

This is the clothing shop... And people are mad. All colors of the candy cane socks and the scarves are in stores. Yes. All the colors. A L L  O F  T H E M .

(don't hurt me for telling you this. it's not my fault. send all your complaints to the purple question mark. ty have a nice day)

The black socks.

The orange socks.

And I forgot to take a screenshot, but even the tan scarf is back in stores.

Somebody says "oof" somebody says that they're dust item. What does that even mean?

Someone says they hate AJ. (what???)

Meanwhile, Gracie acts overtly happy.

While someone is in distress about how much they traded for the their tan scarf, Gracie screams about the chocolate. Ohhh it's just so typical of her.

Moving on.

Pet goats are back! And AJ isn't KIDDING. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Get it????

Moving on again.

Battle for the Beacon is going to be leaving soon. And honestly... I have not even played it once. I also forgot to play Graham's Workshop. Oopsy daisy. On the other side of the page, it says that for the next two Mondays, there's going to be rare black knight armor in stores. I wonder what that's going to look like! I'm excited to see this new armor set come out.

Just an advert (as us British peeps say because I'm totally British ok I'm just a tiny bit British) for the refer a friend thingy. I've never used the refer a friend system, so I don't know a whole lot about it. I do know that if you refer a lot of people and they become members, you can get armor, or you could get a legendary eagle. I don't think I've ever even seen a legendary eagle around Jamaa which is interesting.

Another advert (hehe I'm too lazy to spell it the American way tonight) for the claw machine and phantom invasion... which is... interesting. The claw machine has been around for so many years, I wonder why they had to advertise (there I did it) it in the Jamaa Journal.


What did you think of today's update? Are you happy or mad about the Jamaalidays in July event? Let me know in the comments beloooow!


Here's todays Bible verse!

Galatians 5:13

For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters ... use your freedom to serve one another in love.

God made you. Uniquely. Beautifully. Intentionally. Purposefully. Wonderfully.

EDIT: It turns out that Animal Jam has deleted the candy cane socks from the Jamaaliday Jam party, which is pretty interesting. I'm glad I got to the Jamaaliday Jam party when I did so I could get some socks!

Oh the WonderFULL World of Glitches


Hello, everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday! Currently, while you read this (assuming you're reading on Wednesday) I'm at camp! It's currently Saturday, as I write this! So that's fun!

In today's post, I am going to be going over some weird glitches. I've been collecting pictures of glitches for roughly a month now. So, that's what you are going to be seeing today! I have 5 to show you, shall we get into it?

"You SHALL!"

1: Orange Galoshes

In this glitch I had rare high top sneakers on, which is why the galoshes are orange, but it showed up as I was wearing "green galoshes." Seeing this, really makes me want orange galoshes to exist. Are you hearing me AJ? I would totally were them!

2: Skirt on, or is it off?

Here, I was trying to dress up like Gracie. Well my outfit that I had on before hand had this skirt. I cleared my animal, using the "remove items" button. Well, apparently it glitched some how, and I got this! Whenever I would do an action; I would get this skirt on/off glitch. It was visible to the other people too! Kind of creepy. XDDD

3: Dead Flower Crown?!

THIS IS GROSS! I HAVE DEAD FLOWERS ON MY HEAD! Okay, okay. So this is the freedom flower crown. It showed up perfectly normal on my animal...until I changed the color of my animal. I played around with it, I figured out every 3rd color I picked this glitch worked. I'm not sure if it still works...:Goes and looks: It doesn't. 😭 OH SO SAD!!! The good news was...I was the only person who could see this! When I got out of it, it showed up perfectly normal. It's just interesting. Maybe it's a sign that our freedom is dying?

4: Double Tail

I can't remember what I was doing here, but apparently I was adding something to my trade list. Here, it says I have both the blue and the green tail on. I obviously didn't, and it didn't show both tails, unlike the skirt glitch. But I thought it was interesting and needed to show y'all.

5: Wrong Item Woman

So, this one happen as I was writing this post, so it's active. I got in here and immediately switched to head items. This happened, I said I wanted the fairy princess hat on, and it put this leaf necklace on. I've had this happen to me many times before, but when I tried to duplicate on purpose...I couldn't do it. LOL


Well that's all have for this week. I hope you all enjoyed this post. Let me know in the comments what your favorite glitch was, or if you have a glitch happen to you. Let me know! I would love to hear about the glitches you've experienced.
