Were you looking for the Backyard Igloo?

The Igloo Backyard was an additional area to the player's igloo, where puffles could be moved to and from the igloo. The feature was added on January 23, 2014, and was confirmed by Polo Field on January 9, 2014. The area of the backyard was determined by the Igloo Location of the player's current igloo.


The Igloo Backyard could hold up to 75 puffles. Puffle's statistics remained frozen while they were in the backyard, meaning that they would never run away as long as they were there.


  • All igloo backyards shared the same gate, but their background was determined by the selected Igloo Location.
  • The music of the room you last visited would be the background music of your backyard.
  • If you had any kind of Puffle Creature in your igloo when your membership expired, they would be placed on your backyard and you would not able to walk or bring them back into your igloo unless you renewed your membership.
  • Other penguins could not access your backyard.
  • The original limit of the backyard was 40 puffles. After Snowman Puffles were adoptable, the limit increased to 45, and after Ghost Puffles were adoptable, the limit increased again, to 50. After Puffle Wild was released and Blue Crystal Puffles became adoptable, the limit increased yet again, to 75.
  • On the Club Penguin App, it was a menu instead of a room.


  • There was a glitch that prevented you from leaving the backyard unless you used your map or EPF Phone to go to another room.
  • Sometimes, music that you currently had in your igloo would not play when you waddled in the backyard.
