Shell Collector XX.
Seashells were a type of currency, similar to Pixels and Credits, that were awarded to users who completed Shell Quests during Summer 2011. Quests ran daily during the 60-day event, with new quests becoming available every 20 hours upon completion of the previous quest. They were introduced as a tertiary currency and could be used to purchase a limited furniture series called Shell Gifts. Seashells, similar to Pixels, were untradeable and could only be obtained through the completion of the quests. Like Snowflakes, Seashells were displayed in the top right corner of the screen and could be spent for the duration of the promotion.

After the promotion ended on October 17th, 2011, the Shell Gifts section of the Catalogue was removed and users' shells were wiped, even if they were unspent. During the event, new Achievements was created for users who completed the daily quests. Habbos who completed the majority of the Shell quests were eventually awarded the level 20 Shell Collector badge.

Shell Gifts

Seashell Gifts were rewards redeemed with seashell points of the promotion during summer 2011. The season included furniture, quests and competitions. There were numerous items you could redeem with your seashells and you gained them by completing the everyday quests set.

Some items only cost Seashell points which indicated that they wouldn't be tradeable if bought but some such as the Rare Sea Throne and Ice Cream Trolley were tradeable in the range. They were available for purchase over the duration of summer and many speculated whether or not the Rare Sea Throne would be worth the value in the future. With it being one of the most popular Shell Gift and one that is the most valuable the players saw that this was a good furniture to invest in.
