What are Club Penguin Pins, and how do you get them? Club Penguin Pins are a free accessory obtained simply by finding them in the game. This is not always easy, as they are hidden throughout the game. They are displayed on a player’s penguin card and are collectible, and many players look to get all of them.
While other items such as clothing and igloo accessories are purchased with “coins” that each player wins playing games, pins are a free offering and finding and getting all of them is a common desire among players.
The Pins are all images of familiar objects, such as a beach ball, pizza slice, the sun, a butterfly, tent, vinyl record, and a rowboat. Many fan sites on the internet give clues, or cheats, on where to find the hidden pins. It is a challenge to find them, so players enjoy wearing them once they find them.
Sometimes the pin visually and thematically goes with its location. For example the vinyl record is in the nightclub, the anchor is in the cove, and the spider is in the cave. Others are not so direct. For example the jellyfish can be found in the ski lodge, the starfish is in the mine, and the shrimp is in the dance lounge.
