Polly and Tony (Squared!)

Feb 24, 2010
Polly, Tony, Mischief, and Phil the cheetahs recently received a visit from the real Polly and Tony (the people!). It was quite fun to watch Tony cheetah playing with Tony human, and to teach the real Polly and Tony how to tell all four of the cubs apart. When you know the cats, it is very easy to tell them apart, but when you are just meeting them, it can be very difficult to know who is who!

This morning all four cubs were chasing round and round their dirt mound, and then they all climbed on top and sat for some time looking out across the distance. They were looking very cute!

Sifaka World Cooks!

Feb 22, 2010
Hi there!

In Sifaka World your avatars get to eat some really great foods, so we thought it would be fun for us to start giving you recipes for some of them here so you can make them at home (with an adult of course!).

At the North Pole my character, Chef Holmes, is handing out some yummy treats, including Hot Chocolate, so this week I got together with some of my real world friends and we made a video for you about how to make hot chocolate. This recipe has a twist to it--we've added cinnamon and a little chili powder to give it a Southwestern flair, but if you're not feeling adventurous you can just leave those things out and you'll still have a really great cup of homemade hot chocolate ready to go in just a few minutes!

Here's the video!

Here's the recipe:

Southwestern Hot Chocolate

4 cups milk (make it skim if you're using whipped cream as a topping)
2 Tablespoons agave syrup
4 ounces dark chocolate, chopped
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 cup whipped cream
grated milk chocolate

1. Combine milk and agave syrup in a saucepan and heat on the stove (get an adult to help you!)until hot, but not boiling. Remove from heat.

2. Add chopped chocolate and allow it to sit for a minute before stirring.

3. Add cinnamon and chili powder and whisk until the mixture is bubbly.

4. Ladle hot chocolate into mugs and top with a small amount of whipped cream and grated milk chocolate OR marshmallows.


Note: If you're not a fan of chili powder just leave it out of the recipe.

And the Winners Are...

Feb 17, 2010
Hello everybody! We have chosen the winners for the 6-month membership giveaway! Before I tell you who they are I want to say how amazed and impressed we all were with the number and quality of the entries. Great job, everyone!

It was hard to choose just five out of the entries we received, but we worked together and narrowed it down to the following users whose accounts will be automatically upgraded to full 6 Month Memberships:



When the five winners log in tomorrow they will see that they have full memberships and will begin receiving Sifaka Cash daily as part of their memberships.

Speaking of Sifaka Cash, as I said, we had so many great entries that it was hard to choose only five. Because of that we have also chosen two runners up who will receive 1,500 in Sifaka Cash in their regular accounts. Those two users are:


I wonder what they'll buy with all that Sifaka Cash?!

Thanks for all your hard work, and if you didn’t win this time, don’t despair, we’re going to be offering more giveways in the near future. Hint: If you’re allowed to use Facebook or your parents use Facebook, be sure to become a fan of Sifaka World!!
