Appondale is a land area in Animal Jam Classic that was first hinted at on March 31, 2011. It was officially introduced to the game on April 16, 2011. This land is modeled after a typical savanna. Appondale is located on the far left side of the World Map, next to Jamaa Township.


There is a mud pool in Appondale. When a Jammer stays in the mud for a long amount of time, they are covered in variable amounts of mud depending on how long they have been in the pool. To wash the mud off, the Jammer has to move around, complete an action, or wash off in a body of water (i.e. Crystal Sands.) 


  • Claws N' Paws - A pet shop where Jammers can buy many different pets and items for their pets. It also contains a physical version of the pet stop and the Pet Den Item Shop. Everything available at Claws 'N Paws is available on the animal customization screen. All of the normally available pets in Jamaa can be found here. This does not include seasonal pets. In the first draft, Claws 'N Paws was going to be Peck's home and Guardian Land. The tree housing Claws 'N Paws can be climbed and sat on.


Games Description
Icon of Fruit Slinger Fruit Slinger Each fruit has a different ability and advantage. You drag your mouse to aim and release by letting go. Destroy the phantoms in the fort to win! (Hint: If there are structures in mid-air, try aiming at an angle).
Icon of the Pest Control Pest Control A game sort of like Bloons Tower Defense. Place the defenders, or animals on the path. Upgrade the most important predators to improve their performance. If you let them escape, your health will decrease. Extra tokens equal an extra gem bonus!
Appondale Disc-Toss Disc Toss Click the "jump" button to catch as many frisbees as you can. The golden discs give you bonus Gems! You are allowed only three misses.

  • Based on its Journey Book entries, Appondale seems to be based on the African savanna.
  • There is a glitch where if a player fully covers themselves in the mud in Appondale, then goes to the lava in the Wolves Only Party or Greely's Hideout, their animal will turn solid red.
  • It is possible to climb up the giant tree.
  • This is the first land to be released on Play Wild outside the beta stage; it was released in Play Wild on February 1, 2016.
  • The Giant Tree hosting Claws 'N Paws was originally designed to be Peck's home.
  • Clicking below Appondale, about next to the Adventure Button, players can enter the Basement of Secrets.
  • The mobile game Play Wild did not have this land until February 1, 2016, despite the game being released several months prior.
  • With the release of Balloosh, a tree similar to those in Balloosh was added in the top left corner of Appondale. However, this tree is not in the regular undecorated version of Appondale.
  • Appondale was made dark in August 2017 as part of the Jamaa Eclipse.
  • On September 28, 2023, following the resurgence of the Lines of Power, Appondale was reverted back to its former appearance during the Jamaa Eclipse. Night of the Phantoms decorations were also added during this time.
