Beta Hat 101


If you pre-register Club Penguin Island and subscribe to a membership before the 28th March, you’re officially a Club Penguin Island beta tester. According to a blog post by Megg, you will earn a beta hat.

Hi, penguins,

For those who’ve always wanted the most legendary item–NOW’S YOUR CHANCE! Everyone who pre-registered for CPI on by March 28, and subscribes to a CPI membership will be receiving…




I’m sure most of you know all about the Beta Hat. It was awarded to some of the very first Club Penguin players and became the most sought after item ever since.

For those wondering what the big deal is about pre-registering for the Beta Hat, here’s some history:

  • The Beta Hat first appeared in Club Penguin over 11 (!!!) years ago on September 21, 2005.
  • The item’s official name was actually the Party Hat. Players called it the Beta Hat, and now even The Club Penguin team refers to it as that.
  • Party hats became a tradition. Different colors have been awarded to players for Club Penguin’s anniversary ever since.
  • Though not as rare, there are other beta hats out there: The Snow Beta Hat was given to some of the earliest Card-Jitsu Snow players in 2013, and the Prehistoric Beta Hat is the caveguin version of the Beta Hat, first available during the 2014 Prehistoric Party.
  • Sam the sasquatch wears his very own Beta Hat. How’d he get it? Apparently, a friendly penguin in a green jacket gave it to him. Hmmm…

I don’t think there’s any other item with so much history! Want to be a part of it? Just remember to pre-register for your beta hat by March 28!

Waddle on,

-Club Penguin Team
