Puffles were round, energetic, furry creatures native to Club Penguin Island, they were discovered in November 2005 and became adoptable on 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 on the Penguin Mail postcard. Puffles could speak to each other without penguins understanding them, but they were able to indicate with gestures or drawings to penguins.


All puffles had special abilities, such as seemingly short range telekinesis, and summoning their favorite toys at will out of thin air. Each puffle species could summon its preferred objects, including a sleep mask. Puffles had a keen sense of treasure hunting and could perform tricks, too. Sometimes, puffles rushed together to the same destination, forming a mighty stampede.


While members could adopt up to 75 puffles of all the adoptable species, non-members could adopt up to 2 puffles of limited species (blue, red, rainbow at the Rainbow Puffle Party, gold at the 10th Anniversary Party in the Club Penguin App, 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 filling the puffle's stats to keep them balanced.

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 for a walk alongside its owner. Usable in the backyard and igloo. While out for a walk, puffles could use stations to fill 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 options:

The original 10 puffle species could use Pet Furniture in their owner's igloo to fill 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.

  • Screenhog created the original puffles.[5]

  • Playing cards in Portuguese with puffles on them were released in real life.
  • 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, and the Keeper of the Stage went missing during March 2010, they were rescued underground and then Puffle Rescue released.
  • On the logo for the Puffle Party 2009, each letter had one of the colors of the original 10 puffle species, except for the 'Y' in 'PARTY', which had a magenta or fuchsia color similar to the one of a rainbow puffle's tongue.
  • In the 2010 Coins for Change results video, as the coin is traveling through the pipe, there is a buried saber-tooth puffle skull.

  • 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.
