Snowflakes Counter

Snowflakes was a type of seasonal currency on Habbo, similar to Pumpkins and Hearts due to the fact they were used to reward players for completing various (Snowflake) Quests. They were first introduced to Habbo in 2010 and could be used to buy a limited set of furniture known as Snowflake Gifts. They were an untradeable currency (unlike Credits) so the only way to obtain them was by completing the quests. However, most of the actual Snowflake Gifts are tradeable - typically those that had to be purchased with Credits as well as Snowflakes, as well as some that required a higher amount of Snowflakes alone.

The number of Snowflakes a Habbo had was shown in the top right-hand corner of the screen and they could be spent through December and the first few weeks of January. After that period of time, the Snowflake Gifts section was removed from the Catalogue and a Habbo's Snowflakes were wiped, regardless of whether they had been spent or not.

When Snowflakes (and the gifts) returned in December 2011, Sulake released a new set of Snowflake gifts, the cheapest of which were untradeable while the more expensive items were able to be traded. The 'Wild Boar Head' was purchasable for 10 Snowflakes and no credits, and many at the time wondered whether they were meant to cost Credits too or be untradeable, as this made for a much cheaper tradeable reward.

After a year without the appearance of Snowflakes on Habbo, they were once again used in 2013 to coincide with the Santa's Workshop campaign. Unlike in previous years, all of these newer rewards were tradeable.

Snowflake Shop

Snowflake Shop

The Snowflake Shop was introduced to the hotel in December 2010, reintroduced in December 2011 and returned into the Catalogue for the last time in December 2013 to coincide with the Christmas celebrations. The Snowflake gifts in the shop were available from the catalogue and required Snowflakes to purchase them. To earn Snowflakes, players were required to complete various quests. Users were given the entire month of December to both earn and spend any snowflakes before they were removed at the New Year. With new quests released daily, users were able to build up quite a supply of snowflakes. Although not all items were made to be tradeable, users still continued to use multiple accounts to earn more prizes. Only two gifts released into the catalogue in the first year required users to spend credits along with the snowflakes earned, these were the Cool Club Sofa and Blizzard Dragon. In 2011, half of the Snowflake catalogue items also required credits.
