A snowball.

In Club Penguin, players have the ability to throw snowballs. This is done first clicking the snowball icon in the toolbar (or by pressing the T key), aiming at the target and then clicking it with the left mouse button. When a snowball hits something, it makes a "squish" sound. In addition, some objects around the island can also be interacted with using snowballs in certain ways, such as the Clock Tower.


Snowballs are often used in snowball fights, or when a penguin is annoyed or mad at someone. Another possible usage is to "point" or show other penguins where an object is, such as a pin.
Snowballs are also used to operate certain devices, such as the Island Lifter 3000, the Snowball Power Generator and the watering system which used to be at the Mine Shack. Some of these devices have a main usage in parties, such as the machine at the Cliff, which was used to proceed in the quest of the Wilderness Expedition 2011.

Snowball types

In several rooms or during certain parties, snowballs turn into different items (such as food, bubbles, water balloons, paint balloons, trash, etc.). During Marvel Super Hero Takeovers, snowballs thrown while wearing Super Gloves were given special properties, such as freezing certain targets.
In addition, snowballs thrown by Herbert and Sam the Sasquatch have a unique sprite. While Herbert hits a penguin with a snowball, the player would be buried in a pile of snow.


  • In almost all the rooms during the Water Parties, the snowballs turned into Water Balloons.
    • This was one of the first times where a snowball had special type.
  • If you throw a snowball in the Box Dimension it will bounce up and down in the air before it touches the ground, which could mean that the Box Dimension does not follow normal physics laws.
  • The Underwater replaces the snowballs with bubbles.
  • The Recycling Plant replaced the snowballs with a variety of recyclable items.
  • In the Water Dojo, snowballs turn into Water Balloons.
  • In almost all the rooms during the Adventure Party: Temple of Fruit, the snowballs turned into fruit.
  • During the Star Wars Takeover, if you wore the Stormtrooper Helmet and Stormtrooper Costume while you were in another Planet, snowballs were laser shots.
  • The School replaces the snowballs with paper balls (if thrown in the classroom) and Pizza (if thrown in the cafeteria).
  • If you throw a snowball in the Puffle Hotel Spa, you throw a soap bubble. If you throw it at a penguin it will be covered in bubbles.
  • If you threw a snowball at the fountain inside the Puffle Berry Mall, it would turn into a coin, a reference to how you "make a wish" and toss in a coin.


Club Penguin App

Players who have the Club Penguin App can throw snowballs at their online friends- which is displayed as a big snowball on the screen. When clicking the snowball, a message pops up and asks if the friend wants to throw back a snowball.


  • There was a bug in the Mine Shack, when you threw a snowball it would be round at the tracks. This bug was later fixed.


  • The maximum amount of snowballs in a room is 10. If another snowball is thrown, the earliest one will be removed.
  • Snowballs can be used to rotate the target at the Clock Tower.
  • When Rockhopper throws a Snowball, Yarr pulls out a mini-telescope and looks after it.
  • Bouncer, the Elite Puffle, is specially trained to throw snowballs.
  • Third-party cheating programs allow penguins to throw snowballs off-screen.
  • The F.I.S.H. says not to report penguins for throwing snowballs at you.
  • There is a server named 'Snowball'.
  • The icon of the snowball changed on April 17, 2014, as part of the toolbar update that took place during the Puffle Party 2014.
  • If a penguin is in a certain position on a chair or an item, when hit by a snowball, they will go through it.
  • If you hold T and you rapidly click, you can throw snowballs extremely fast, though this is only client side.
  • In an unknown update, if a player gets hit by a snowball, they cannot perform any action such as waving or dancing. To do so, the player needs to move to another point of the room first.
