The Merry Walrus Party was a party on Club Penguin. It began on December 17, 2014 and ended on December 30, 2014. The Merry Walrus Party was the tenth annual Christmas-themed party and the last party of 2014. Like preceding Christmas-themed parties, Coins for Change made a return. This party was created to celebrate Merry Walrus, the "Santa Claus" of Club Penguin. Members were able to adopt a Blue Crystal Puffle. There is a TV special about the party called "We Wish You a Merry Walrus".

History[edit]

Development[edit]

The party was first confirmed on November 24, 2014 in the Factory website[1]. It was also revealed details about the party and the Coins for Change 2014. On December 1, Polo Field posted on the What's New Blog three sneak peeks for December and said that everyone will get an exclusive first-edition hat[2].

On December 10, Megg revealed details about Coins for Change 2014, saying that there will be 4 projects to unlock (Schools, Libraries, Playgrounds, Animal Homes) and all the coins the players spent from the December 2014 Penguin Style catalog will go to Coins For Change from December 18-29[3]. She also posted a sneak peek of the donation meter. One day later, on December 11, Club Penguin Russian's Twitter account posted a draft of the Forest[4]. On the same day, advertisements on the homepage, the login and exit screens were added.

In-game development[edit]

On December 4, two weeks before the party starts, the Merry Walrus Parade started. On December 11, in the issue #477 of the Club Penguin Times, Aunt Arctic said that she learned about Merry Walrus after she found a storybook.

Coins for Change[edit]

See main article, Coins for Change

2014 was Coins For Change's eighth year. It was confirmed in issue #475 of Club Penguin Times. It was the second time that Club Penguin supported projects which were unlocked as players donated coins. This year, there were 4 projects (schools, libraries, playgrounds, and animal homes). For the first time ever, coins spent in the December 2014 Penguin Style were donated to the cause.

Free Items[edit]

A total of eleven free items were made available for this party. Items marked with a badge (Memberbadge.png) indicate that the item can only be obtained by member players.

Trivia[edit]

  • It was the first Christmas-themed party in five years to feature a normal sky.
  • It was the Christmas-themed party with less decorated rooms since 2005.
  • It was the first party since the Muppets World Tour that not changed the map.
  • This was the first and only year Club Penguin has used the tradition.

Appearance in Other Parties[edit]

The 10th Anniversary Party saw the return of the Merry Walrus-decorated Mall. A few changes had been made to it since its original appearance: The fountain was replaced with a robotic tour guide saying "Get your last minute shopping done at this Merry Walrus 2014 party room! This was such a popular spot that the Mall became permanent in 2015. Penguin Fact: These are the first (and only) escalators on Club Penguin Island!". Two Christmas trees on the top floor were also partially cropped out.
