Item History - Fancy Top Hats

I'm going to be starting a new series type of thing called Item History. Basically, this is going to be, well, the history of specific items, as well as some trivia about the chosen item. Starting off will be Fancy Top Hats!

Fancy Top Hats were introduced on January 19, 2012 and were only available at the Trading Party in The Claw. Before all of the clothing items got changed to look more 3D, their original item icons looked like this:

The item first appeared on a Jam a Gram that AJHQ sent out to nonmembers advertising membership. Unfortunately, I don't have a screenshot of the Jam a Gram itself, but this was the picture of the hat:

As you can see in the picture, the hat also has "2012" and fireworks on top. This is because Fancy Top Hats were originally going to be special 2012 hats!
Look at this tiger:

It's unknown whether or not these top hats were going to be the monthly member gift for January 2012. It's certainly possible that these hats could have been planned to be member items at some point. But it leaves us with a mystery - why did they change Fancy Top Hats to no longer display the 2012 and fireworks?

Hopefully you found this post at least slightly interesting... I might to a bunch more of these if people like it enough

What item should I make a post about next?


  1. This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.

    1. I guess those will be in the next item history post (even though spiked stuff are like my least favorite items lol)

  2. Maybe 2012 and fireworks from the Fancy Top Hats were removed because
    1. It is no longer 2012 and
    2. 2012 was the last Leap Year and there are usually lots of fireworks in Leap Years.

    1. Pretty sure it wasn't removed because it isn't 2012 anymore. This was in 2012 and the 2012 firework animation only happened on like 2 animals' actions which is why I think they tried to remove it but they didn't remove it completely

  3. i think that is cool, but heck what do i know i only started in 2012 and i never saw that item what is wrong with me?

  4. i never saw that item and i started in 2012 what is wrong with me?

    1. They were only available in the claw at the Trading Party and aren't very popular, maybe that's why
      Honestly I forgot these existed until you commented here

  5. I have tons of fancy top hats, I remember when I joined I collected them which was in 2012. The colors i have are 2 orange, 2 black, 2 blue, 1 green, 1 purple, and 1 white!
