Rares are items in the game that are marked with a gold RARE tag. Most rares have been Rare Item Monday items while others are previous Monthly Member Gifts or Adventure prizes. They are among the most popular and coveted items in Animal Jam. They sometimes use them as prizes for various purposes but are rarely seen to do so. A majority of items have a rare version, usually clothing items. Rares can usually be obtained by either purchasing them as a Rare Item Monday item or by playing certain Adventures. Although the most common way to get a rare item is by using the Trading System.
