Rarity is a measure for items that are exclusive to a group of players. An item is defined as rare if it is old and has not been reintroduced. The definition of "rarity" and when an item becomes rare is changed among different players. For this wikia, the definition for rarity is an item that hasn't been reintroduced in at least 4 years. Therefore, the items listed on this page are items that were last available in 2010 or before.
A player who joined Club Penguin 4+ years ago (in 2005-2010) usually owns many rare items, and is generally looked up on by newer players. For example, the Party Hat given out during the server testing party - 1 month before the public release of Club Penguin - is considered rare because many beta testers have stopped playing the game or were banned, leaving a small amount of players still with it and rendering it rare to come by. Players usually demonstrate their "rareness" by wearing their oldest clothes and showing their ability to match the clothes of any penguin they come across, leading to competitions where players try and match each other until one fails to do so.

Rare items are either old, making them not always available, which makes it "rare" or one-time items (Anniversary hats, pins, etc.). Rarity is a long sought after goal in new penguins.
The items listed below are "rare" because they're only available in some parties, they have not been in a catalog for a while, or it has been confirmed by the Club Penguin Team that it will never come back.
