Another Mountains Monday has arrived, and as it’s the fourth week of the month, it’s time to share a photo of something in the real world related to Club Penguin! I’ve always found this one quite cool, and it’s particularly relevant with all the musical festivities ongoing on the island currently.
As you may be aware, Club Penguin was founded in Kelowna, which is a city in Canada. In this city, it’s actually possible to find pianos based on the game which people can play, so that’s today’s photo! You can see the puffles on the piano on the left.
The reasoning for this is that the pianos present there were sponsored and funded by Disney Interactive, so among community designs, one of them had a puffle. As such, I thought that this was a pretty cool image to share.
Thank you very much for reading, waddle on!
As usual for today’s Mountains Monday post, I’ll be sharing a photo of something. I’m not quite sure where today’s is from; I found it in the Media Library from several years ago, and I can’t find it online elsewhere, which is why it has a watermark!
It’s a rather exclusive photo of a lightsaber, following the Star Wars Takeover, and has Club Penguin branding on it. My understanding based on an older post of mine is that this item was offered to every team member in the UK office in Brighton.
This is probably one of the rarer pieces of Club Penguin merchandise; it was never sold, and this seems to be the only image left of it online. I wish I had more information to share, but it’s difficult to find! I did think that this was a cool photo worth posting again though.
Thank you for reading, waddle on!
The Kelowna Innovation Centre is a location in Canada founded by Lane Merrifield, who you may know as Billybob, one of the founders of Club Penguin. For today’s Mountains Monday, I wanted to share a wonderful photo from there.
At the end of 2018, when Club Penguin Island had announced closure, members of the team (old and new) held a little get-together there. As part of this event, the staircase was decorated with the different designs of the Holiday Party.

I must say, it’s quite remarkable seeing the evolution of the artstyle with just penguins related to the Holiday Party. You might spot some familiar characters, such as the Merry Walrus, too! If you’d like to see the post from when this event actually happened, you can find that here. But it’s been a while, so I thought it was worth resharing.
Ps. Lane is currently recovering from the coronavirus – just wanted to join the rest of the community in wishing him a swift recovery.
Hello! For today’s Mountains Monday, where a photo gathered from somewhere on the Internet featuring something in real life is posted, I actually wanted to share something from the Club Penguin HQ.
I’ll probably post HQ photos quite regularly, among other photos! For today though, the two images are both elevators! It might seem bizarre, but they actually have some super pretty designs on them.

I always do enjoy seeing the contrast between the older and modern art-styles. Along with those two designs, there were a couple more in the Kelowna HQ as well. For example, this elevator design depicted a variety of penguins having a fun time!
Check it out – it’s super pretty!
Thank you very much for reading, I hope that you enjoyed seeing some of these designs on different lifts!
Happy Monday! Last month, as part of Mountains Monday, I featured a couple of photos of the game at Ski Resorts. As a reminder, on the fourth Monday of the month, I intend to just show some random in real life photos.
This week, as it’s the anniversary of CP Rewritten this month, I thought I’d feature the game at Times Square, located in New York, with three different photos!

There’s something which I find really interesting about Club Penguin at Times Square. It’s the stark contrast between the event in 2008 and the one just under a decade later, in 2017.
The link regarding the anniversary is that Club Penguin celebrated their third anniversary there, on October 24th 2008. As part of the event, Lane Merrifield (who you may know as Billybob, one of the founders of the game) was on stage.
I should note that there was another event in December 2011, where someone dressed up as Rockhopper, though I couldn’t find any photos of this event. This was a charity event, intended to collect coats for the winter.
The other event was on April 25th 2017, intended to celebrate World Penguin Day. There were advertisements, but no big crowd nor stage – just a few penguins, including Megg!
Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed these random photos of the game at the Times Square!
Happy Monday! As part of the Mountains Monday schedule, you may have noticed that I cancelled the initial post to share igloo designs because it would clash with another community idea, however I’m very grateful to the very beautiful igloos that were submitted!
I’ve been toying with what to post on the fourth Monday of the month, and I think I’ve decided: it shall be a photo. It could be a completely one, but it’ll always be related to Club Penguin and it’ll feature something in real life!

Today, I’m sharing three random photos, two of which you can see above. I thought these were really cool adverts located at a ski resort in Canada; the artwork is super pretty, and it’s cool seeing the contrast in the art styles!
The second photo is the same Ski Resort, but it actually features Lance Priebe (or rsnail – the creator of Club Penguin) going down it!

So as you can see, some completely random photos, but that is the point of Mountains Monday! I hope you’ll enjoy this little series!
