“Unless you hangout with me a lot, you might not know that the following furni were rares in the past. Many fansites claim that these items are part of furni lines but that is not entirely true. There is one furni in this list which was released as a rare but eventually became part of a furni line! #shocking
Pssst click the furni titles to find out more!
Many people wrongly believe that the Unholy Ground is part of the Habboween furni line. In actual fact, the rare was released in 2007 for the “Monsters of Habbo” campaign. It resembles the grass patch, however, the grass patch was released later than the Unholy Ground. When you rotate the Unholy Ground it reveals stones and leaves!
The catalogue page claims “The Unholy Ground is the ultimate room decoration item”, but it has never reached the status of the Petal Patch, and has somehow been forgotten over time. Awww.
Or, as some of our UK Habbos might know it, the Power Globe. It was a rare released in 2008 during two campaigns. Players from Habbo.com might have faint memories of an event called the “Executive Challenge”, where you had to start your own Habbo business and could win some pretty cool “Pen Badges”.
On 21 January 2008 it was released in the catalogue for 25 credits. Big letters read: RARE Executive Globe! UK players faced another release of the Executive Globe (then called Power Globe) in a campaign called “Heroes And Villains Of Habbopolis”. In this competition you could choose to be a Hero or Villian, or you could just sit back and let the Nifty Nine do the job for us..
Christmas inside Habbo was not really Christmas for a long time. Sure, we had Christmas trees, candles and holy garlands, but where were the sleighs and reindeer? Luckily in December 2007 Habbo extended the Christmas furni line! Not only did they add a sleigh for us to ride in, but we could also build snow castles. Additionally, competition after competition entered the hotel because of our wonderful Christmas Contenders. (Read more about them here). The final Christmas Contender was Larry. Larry brought a rare with him into the hotel:
The Stuffed Reindeer. Complete with glowing nose!
Move over Club Massiva!
To find real Habbo love we all had to climb aboard the Habborella. Remember our very own Habtanic? But without the iceberg? Habbo Staff became “Cruise Staff” and suddenly we had to build love cabins and engine rooms.
In February 2008, during the Habborella Campaign, Habbo introduced the Love Randomizer.
With just 2 mouse clicks this furniture decides who your next lover will be!
(If only we had this furni in real life eh?)
Warning! This may shock you! Yes, you read it correctly.
The Pink Shutter was a rare on Habbo.com “For when you need a bit of privacy…”
It is unknown why this furni was released as rare on Habbo.com, and not in the regular Iced line like it is now.
Released for a shocking 25 Credits you could own it for yourself and, since it was 2007, you didn’t even get a badge with it! 10 years later it was added to the normal Iced line for just 10 credits.. The cheek of it!!”
