Puffles were small limbless furry creatures native to Club Penguin Island. Puffles were first discovered in November 2005, then first adoptable in March 2006, being sold for 800 coins, which had since been reduced to 400 coins. Adopted puffles stay at their owner's home or backyard until they are taken out for a walk. More than 25 types of puffle, including real-world animal counterparts, were officially discovered and recognized. Puffles ate O' berries and other foods native to Club Penguin.

All puffles were only for members, except blue puffles and red puffles, however, everyone with an unused Treasure Book code or an unused puffle toy code could adopt the original 10 for free, with a limited amount of puffles per code. Only twice, a member puffle became a non-member puffle for a limited time at a party. Tasks that required a puffle had to be completed to adopt rainbow puffles and gold puffles (Puffle Tasks and Quest for the Gold Puffle respectively).

Puffle Parties were held in either February, March, or April since 2009, at said celebrations, each puffle had their own decorated area and/or new species were discovered and/or it had puffle themed exclusive items.

Description

Physical Appearance

Puffles originally appeared with rough cut fur and generic facial expressions. They had eyes and a mouth, but did not have noses. In 2011, they were updated with a new look both in-game and on the Puffle Card. In 2013, the puffles were shown in a somewhat mix of their original artwork and the 2011 artwork (when coming out of animations they may occasionally flash back into their original artwork).

Language

Not much was known about puffle language. Their main sound was squeaking, as seen (heard) in Puffle Roundup and by mousing over the puffles in Aunt Arctic's igloo in Secret Mission 1. Puffles also seemed to be able to communicate with each other in some way because in many secret agent missions and/or EPF missions, puffles worked together without making any sounds. In the book The Great Puffle Switch, it was revealed that puffles could speak to each other without penguins understanding. It was also mentioned by Aunt Arctic in the newspaper that she had been trying to figure out the puffle language and that Rockhopper could communicate with Yarr since they knew each other well.

Species Abilities

All puffles had special abilities, mainly involving their short range telekinesis. Each species could summon a toy (varies from species to species) at will from mid-air. All puffles could summon hair brushes, bath tubs, and some puffles could summon color specific objects like a sleeping mask. Puffles had a keen sense of treasure hunting and could perform tricks too.

Limitations

Members could adopt up to 75 puffles, with no limit on the quantity of each type, while non-members could only buy up to 2 puffles of either red or blue (or rainbow at the Rainbow Puffle Party) (or green alien at Operation: Crustacean) (It didn't affect unlockable puffles). Puffles were the only type of pets penguins can own. Only 10 puffles could fit in your igloo, the rest went to your igloo's backyard.

Care

Main article: Puffle Interface

When you clicked one of the puffles in your igloo, a full screen interface would show up with five different tabs, PH would guide you in using the menu's features when it was opened for the first time. Each tab had corresponding options for the type of care. The options were as follows:

  • Food Tab: It was used to select what to feed your puffle to boost its food stats. Food could be bought in the Puffle Catalog and dug up by your puffle(s). Each puffle species had different reactions to the food selected and different eating animations.
  • Care Tab: It was used to select the bath and brush features to boost your puffle's care stats.
  • Rest Tab: It was used to select the sleep feature to boost your puffle's rest stats.
  • Dress Tab: It was used to put hats on your puffle(s). Hats could be bought in the Puffle Catalog, unlocked with codes, obtainable at parties and in the Introduction to Club Penguin. All puffle creatures couldn't wear hats.
  • Pet Papers: Although not a tab, the puffle menu would show Pet Papers. Here, you could see your certificate of ownership, tips for Puffle Digging, or send your puffle back to its natural habitat.
  • Walk Tab: It was created since puffles could dig up food. It appeared at the left side of the interface and had a picture of a puffle on a leash.
  • Puffle Handbook: Although not a tab, the puffle handbook told you how to care for your puffles, information on the puffle color, and told you about their features. This handbook was also at the Pet Shop.

If you were inactive with your puffle for a while and/or all its stats got depleted, it would send you a postcard and abandon you to return to the wild.

Right after all your puffle's stats are full, your puffle performed a special animation:

  • If it happened in the puffle interface, fireworks (placeholder)
  • If it happened while walking your puffle, shine (placeholder)

In-Game Care

When you clicked one of your puffles, a simple menu appeared. You could see your puffle's stats and choose from 3 buttons. In it you could choose:

  • Walk Button: It was used to take your puffle out for a walk. It could be used in your backyard and igloo.
  • Care Button: It opened the puffle interface. It could be used in your igloo and only on the original 12 puffles.
  • Move to Igloo/Backyard Button: It moved your puffle to your backyard or igloo. It could be used in your backyard and igloo.

Playable/Main Game Appearances

Pink Puffle with a snorkel.png

Some puffles can help you play games.

All puffles, even those which didn't have a specific game, could participate in Puffle Launch and Pufflescape, whether you were a member or not. You also did not need a puffle to play; red puffles were default for Puffle Launch and white ones in Pufflescape. Rainbow Puffles, Gold Puffles and all Puffle Creatures can't participate in either game.

Cameo Appearances

  • Some of the power cards in Card-Jitsu involved puffles. There was a Card-Jitsu deck themed on puffles, which was called the Puffle Deck.

Trivia

  • "Almost 3000 submissions" were received from players suggesting a name for these creatures in the "Name That Critter!" contest in issue 7 of The Penguin Times. The Club Penguin Team eventually decided the winning name, "Puffles".[2]
    • The penguins that came up with the winning name were Yolam08, Wafflepye, and Gronnie.[3]
  • Screenhog created the original puffles.[4]
  • When players adopted a puffle, they would receive a postcard from sys saying "Thank you for adopting (puffle's name). It needs a lot of attention. Puffles will return to the wild when they are left alone for too long".
  • Most puffles were almost exactly half as tall as a penguin. The only exception was the White Puffle.[5]
  • There was a Card-Jitsu deck of trading cards with all cards about puffles.
  • Players used to be able to see the names of other players' puffles in their igloo; however, this feature was removed.
  • Puffles might have had telekinesis, because they seemed to be able to make items appear and pick them up without arms or hands.
  • If a member bought a puffle, but their membership expired, some puffles that were not red or blue would stay, which meant non-members could own member puffles.
  • Yarr, The Keeper of the Boiler Room, The Keeper of the Stage, and Aunt Arctic's puffles went missing during early/mid January 2010 due to the Cave Expedition. They could soon be seen in a rock slide, but soon they returned due to the new game Puffle Rescue where penguins saved puffles from the seas and in caverns.
  • On most of the Puffle Party logos, one could see that the letters had the colors of all the puffles (Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, Purple, Pink, Black, White, Orange, and most recently, Brown). The 'Y' in 'Party' was a Magenta/Fuchsia color.
  • It was likely that puffles were mammals, as they had fur and other features that made them mammal-like.
    • However, real life dinosaurs were reptilian, likely meaning Dinosaur Puffles were also reptilian.
  • In the 2010 Coins for Change results video, as the coin is traveling through the pipe, there is a Pre-Historic Puffle with two large teeth at the front of its mouth; however, this is just a statue.
  • When the Red Puffle was first released in the Pet Shop, they were only for members, but in 2007, Club Penguin let the Red Puffles be for Non-Members as well.

The Puffle power card.

  • When puffles tried to use Puffle Beds, Puffle Igloos, etc., their old look would be used in the animation briefly.
  • It was unknown if they inhabited Club Penguin Island before penguins. Sensei might have brought puffles to Club Penguin, because he was supposedly the first penguin on the island.
  • There was a Card-Jitsu power card that featured every puffle released before White Puffles. The owner of the card rang a Bell which then caused a stampede of puffles onto the opposing player.
  • On September 29, 2006, penguins were able to walk their puffles for the first time.
  • Screenhog was originally not going to give puffles mouths, but Billybob and Rsnail convinced him to add them.[6][7]
  • Since Red Puffles came from Rockhopper Island, and Blue Border Collies and Orange Tabby Cats came from an unnamed island, it was possible that puffles were also found on islands nearby Club Penguin Island.
  • In May 2013, the price to purchase a puffle was changed from 800 to 400.
  • On June 20, 2013, Puffle Digging was added, which allowed puffles to dig for coins. Later, in July 2013, puffles could also dig up certain items and furniture.
  • 2013 was the first time multiple puffles were discovered in one year since 2006.
    • Multiple puffles were discovered again in 2014.
  • Before, puffles counted as a hand item so the owner could not hold a hand item while walking a puffle; however, a few years before Club Penguin shut down, it became possible to walk puffles and carry a hand item at the same time.
  • As of January 2014, if a penguin had more than 10 puffles, they could move the rest of them to the Igloo Backyard. If a puffle was in the backyard, their stats remained the same.
  • As of April 2014, if you logged off on Club Penguin while walking with a puffle and login again, your puffle would be with you, and would not go to the Backyard or to the Igloo.
  • There were also versions of puffles as hand items, although these were not obtainable. They functioned similarly to how Flare did in-game.
  • As of May 2014, owners could've made their puffle dig anytime. After digging once, the player had to wait for roughly two minutes before a puffle could be made to dig again.
  • When puffles first came out, there were signs telling where to go to get puffles and puffles around the island.
  • The Snowman Puffle was the first puffle to be artificially created by penguins themselves by finishing quests.
  • At one point, elemental variants of puffles were considered, but were ultimately scrapped. They had the working name "Gloopies" and appear to have resembled a water droplet, snowball, and fireball.[8]
