Puffles were limbless furry creatures native to Club Penguin Island, they were discovered in November 15, 2005 and became adoptable in March 17, 2006. Adopted puffles stayed at their owner's home or backyard and could be taken for a walk.


Puffle facts shown on The Penguin Times newspaper


Not much is known about puffle language. Their main sound was squeaking, as heard in Puffle Roundup and PSA Secret Missions, and seen in the Penguin Mail postcard. In the book The Great Puffle Switch, it was revealed that puffles could speak to each other without penguins understanding them. Aunt Arctic mentioned in the Club Penguin Times that she had been trying to figure out the puffle language, and that Rockhopper could communicate with his puffle Yarr since they knew each other well.


All puffles had special abilities, like their short range telekinesis, and summoning their favorite toys at will out of thin 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.


While members could adopt up to 75 puffles of all the adoptable species, non-members could adopt up to 2 puffles of limited species (red, blue, rainbow at the Rainbow Puffle Party, and green alien at Operation: Crustacean), however, these non-member limits did not apply to unlockable puffles. Only 10 puffles could fit in an igloo, the rest went to the igloo's backyard.


Puffle Handler in the Puffle Interface

If all the stats of a puffle were empty while its owner is inactive, it would send a postcard to its owner and abandon its owner to return to the wild. That could be prevented by keeping the puffle's stats filled with stat boosts.

As a puffle's owner in its own igloo or backyard, clicking the puffle made a simple menu appear, which showed the puffle's stats and 3 buttons could be picked:

  • Move to Backyard/Igloo button: Sent the puffle to the backyard or igloo. Usable in the backyard and igloo. In the backyard, puffle stats could not be depleted.
  • Walk button: Took the puffle out for a walk. Usable in the backyard and igloo. While out for a walk, puffles could use stations to boost their stats: Eat Stations, Play Stations, Clean Stations and Rest Stations.
  • Comb button: Opened the Puffle Interface. Usable in the igloo and not on Puffle Creatures, however, it contained additional features:

The original 10 puffle species could use Pet Furniture in their owner's igloo to boost their stats themselves when they needed to. Right after a puffle's stats were full while being walked or in the Puffle Interface, it would jump around fireworks.

Each puffle had a different personality and style, so players could find the one that fit them best. More than 25 species of puffle, including real-world animal counterparts, were discovered and recognized.

A chart listing most puffles

  • "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".[3]
    • The penguins that came up with the winning name were Yolam08, Wafflepye, and Gronnie.[4]
  • Screenhog created the original puffles.[5]
  • Postcards sent by puffles and Adoption postcards were sent by sys, along with the rest of automatically sent postcards.
  • Their height is half as tall as a penguin, except white puffles.[6]
  • Puffles had their own trading card game.
  • Players could see the names of other players' puffles in the igloo of their owner; however, this feature was removed.
  • Yarr, The Keeper of the Boiler Room, The Keeper of the Stage, and Aunt Arctic's puffles went missing in January 2010, they were rescued during the Cave Expedition.
  • On most of the Puffle Party logos, the letters had the colors of the original 10 puffle species (red, blue, green, yellow, purple, pink, black, white, orange, and brown). The 'Y' in 'Party' was formerly 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 buried saber-tooth puffle skull.
  • Red puffles were only for members until 2007.
  • When puffles used Pet Furniture, their old look would be briefly used.
  • It is unknown if they inhabited Club Penguin Island before penguins.

  • 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 April 2014, if a player logged off while walking a puffle, the puffle would stay being walked, instead of returning to the owner's igloo or backyard automatically.
  • There were versions of puffles as hand items, although these were not obtainable. They functioned similarly to how Flare did in-game.
  • When puffles first came out, there were signs telling where to go to get puffles and puffles around the island.
  • 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.[9]
  • 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.
