Blazing Hot Red Day!

Hey Panda Pals!

The Harvest Festival is going strong! The Scarecrow at Harvest Grove has some super Harvest Fest prizes for you. Just collect the caramel apples you see around Pandanda, then trade them for the prizes!

If you have pet dragons, you will want to make sure to get the Dragon House to put in your treehouse. You can even get more than one, if you want (and if you collect enough apples!)

In case you haven't heard, the clothing catalog was updated on Sunday with some end-of-summer items. Summer is winding down, and the weather will be turning cooler soon, so take advantage of the hot summer Pandanda days to show off some new warm-weather fashions!

Speaking of hot, I've decided that Thursday is Blazing Hot Red Day! Go through your closet and put on your red Panda Paint, and all of the red clothes and accessories you can find. Then get together with all of your friends and raise the temperature with all of that red-hot redness!

If you take a cool picture of the fiery fun, send them to me at screenshots@pandanda.com with RED DAY in the subject line. I'll choose some of the reddest to feature on my Blog!

Be Red Hot but don't lose your cool!

And you can even buy a Horse Companion from Questy, if you have reached a high enough Quest Level! 

Free Elite Member Day, and the second day of Harvest Festival! It's going to be a great day!

 **Non-Elite pandas will get to keep all the Elite items purchased Saturday but will not be able to use them after Saturday without an Elite Membership )except on future Free Elite Member Days).

Fall into Harvest Fest!

Pandanda's 3rd Annual Harvest Festival has begun! When you log in today, you will see harvest decorations all over Pandanda land. You will also notice caramel apples popping up. Make sure to click on every one you see, so you can add them to your collection.

When you have at least 25 caramel apples, pay a visit to the Scarecrow in Harvest Grove to trade them for his prizes. You can even visit the Scarecrow before you have any apples, if you just want to check out what his prizes are.

And make sure you have your music turned on, so you can hear the cool tunes that are playing especially for the Festival. If the music makes you want to dance, head on over to East Market Street. There is a dance-floor set up there, and fresh apple cider from the apple press if you get thirsty!

Get out there and have fun!

You can earn coins for shopping by collecting fruits, veggies, coconuts, mushrooms, gemstones, and recyclables, then selling them to the vendors around Pandanda. You can also catch fish and sell them to Fishy Joe. You can even earn coins by completing Quests!

Free Elite Member Day is for one day only, starting this Saturday at 12:01am PST and ending Saturday at 11:59pm PST, so mark your calendars! And don't forget - the Harvest Festival starts on Friday!

Harvest Festival Begins on Friday!


It's almost here, it's almost here!!! What am I so excited about? Well, the Pandanda Harvest Festival, of course! It begins this Friday, August 24th and goes until Monday, September 10th.

During the Harvest Festival, Pandanda will start to look and feel a bit like my favorite season of the year - Autumn. The leaves will be turning gold, and the Pandanda citizens will decorate with scarecrows, bales of hay, and banners. There will even be an outdoor dance floor set up at East Market Street, just right for some dancing with your friends!

And let's not forget the most fun part of Harvest Fest - collecting Caramel Apples to trade for exciting Harvest Fest Prizes! You can collect Caramel Apples all over Pandanda (except in treehouses), then visit Scarecrow at Harvest Grove to trade your apples for his prizes.

Pssst......here's a bit of news that I know everyone has been anxious to hear - there will be a Clothing Catalog update sometime this weekend! Get ready to go shopping!

Party on, Pandas!

Big Fun Next Weekend!

Hi Friends!

I know a lot of you have either already started back to school, or you soon will be. I hope you all will have a wonderful school year, and will learn lots of new things that you can use for the rest of your life!

I wanted to make sure everyone has marked their calendars for two exciting events next week. On Friday the 24th, the annual Pandanda Harvest Festival begins! The temperatures in Pandanda land will start to cool off, and the beautiful colors of autumn will be seen all over the island (well, except for Coconut Beach - it's always tropical there!) You will start to see yummy caramel apples appear on the ground, but don't eat them! You'll want to collect them to trade for exclusive Harvest Festival prizes!

On the the very next day, Saturday the 25th, another fabulous Free Elite Member Day is planned! Free Elite Member Day (or as we like to call it around here, FEMD) is a day where everyone who logs in has full access to Pandanda's Elite Membership features for that day. You can buy anything you want from the catalogs, decorate your treehouse and have friends over, and even adopt a pet dragon from the Pet Shop.

It's gonna be fun!

New Pandanda Forums on Toontask!


Hey Panda Pals!

I’ve got some cool news for you! There is now a special Pandanda Forum on the Toontask.com site!  You can check it out by clicking here. You can also find it listed in the Blogroll.
You will need to make an account for yourself on Toontask.com before you can post in the Pandanda forums. You can use your Pandanda name if it is available, but make sure that you do not use your Pandanda password.

After you log in, you can even change the theme of the whole Toontask site to Pandanda! Just scroll down to the very bottom of the forum page and look for Change Theme in the left corner.

Once you have registered, make sure to add your panda to the database. You can find it in the top menu of the blog, where it says Characters. You can include your Quest Level and the number of Quests you have completed. You can use the database to search for other members of the forum. That’s a really cool feature of the forum!

Of course, make sure you read the Policies and Guidelines and Posting Rules for the forum. The ToonTask.com site and forums are geared towards young children so, just like on Pandanda, all content posted on the site must be appropriate for young children, even if you are older!

I will be making an account there very soon, and so will a Moderator or two. I hope to see lots of my friends on the Toontask Pandanda Forums!

Party on, Pandas!

Wacky Wednesday Tomorrow!


So far this year, we have had a Winter Wacky Wednesday and a Spring Wacky Wednesday. I think it is absolutely time for a Summer Wacky Wednesday!

What is Wacky Wednesday? It's the day to wear your craziest, weirdest, wackiest clothes! Mix and match items from your closet until you have the most outrageous outfit you can find. Then get together with your friends and have a Wacky Fashion Show at the Purple Door or your treehouse. Maybe you can even make up some wacky new words!

If you take a picture of you and your friends being wonderfully wacky, send the picture to me at screenshots@pandanda.com. Put WACKY in the subject line, and make sure to include your panda name. I will choose some pictures to feature in my Blog.

Make sure to mark your calendars for two super events coming up this month. Free Elite Member Day is on Saturday the 25th, and the Harvest Festival begins on Friday the 24th. I can't wait!

Party on, Pandas!

Farewell Zing!

Zing Ballyhoo has packed up his suitcases and is preparing to leave Pandanda for another of his journeys. He loves his visits to Pandanda, but he is a traveling panda at heart. He really enjoys scouring the globe for cool new prizes to give when he returns to Pandanda!

There are only a few hours left to get Zing's final prize. Just visit him at Treehouse Lobby to trade your 10 Golden Tickets to him for his prize. Once he leaves, you won't be able to get the prize, so don't wait!

Party on, Pandas!

Ancient Games Day Pictures

Hi Friends!

I sure had a great time with you all on Ancient Games Day over the weekend. It was really cool seeing so many of you in your togas, running all over Pandanda competing in different games. I hope you all earned lots of Pandanda Coins for your efforts!

The Mods and I awarded Panda Gold to over 300 different pandas during Ancient Games Day on Saturday for special Bunny Chase and Ghosts of Misty Hill games. I love it when everyone is playing and cooperating! It makes the games so much more fun!

Here are some pictures I took during my visits on Saturday. Maybe you can spot yourself!

All smiles at Shady Glen
Panda Gold and Togas - an awesome combination!
You still have several days to collect 10 Golden Tickets to exchange for Zing Ballyhoo's last prize. He has really been in the Olympic spirit! Zing will be leaving Pandanda again late Sunday evening, so don't wait too long before you get his last prize. Once Zing leaves, you can no longer get his prizes. He will go adventuring again, looking for new and spectacular prizes for his next visit!

Party on, Pandas!
