Quote of the Week


With his head down and a sad look in his eyes, Gorix wandered around the Space Station... He felt desolated, as he managed to collect almost all of the coins on the Space Station Coins page of his stamps album… almost all of them. One coin was still missing, the most precious one, which he had never even heard of being found by anyone in whole space. Completing this collection was one of the greater dreams of the resistance hero since his childhood times with Parlax, who also shared such ambitions.


The Top Foods in Every All-Star's Lunch Box



With Altador Cup XIV well underway, players all over Neopia are fighting for the big win. It’s common knowledge that practice makes perfect, but people often forget the importance of food. No amount of practice will make up for a poor diet, especially if you want to be an all-star. Weeks before this year’s Altador Cup, I went in search of the foods every champion needs to succeed. After many interviews with past winners, I’m happy to present to you the top foods every champion needs in their lunch box.

Customization Spotlights: Enter Now!



Do you consider yourself a Queen or King of Customization? Do you enjoy dressing up your pets in the most lavish outfits, always paying attention to the newest additions to the NC Mall?

But did you know there are other types of contests where you can create an entry and win a spiffy trophy?

Not so Coconut Shy


Every day, Leeroy has hundreds of neopets and their owners stepping up to the plate to get their hands on his coveted coconuts. “This place is a joke!” some customers have said. “It’s rigged! It never falls down! How can a coconut even stay up like that?!” another one exclaimed. Leeroy hears comments like that all the time, so in honor of Quiggle day, we’ve asked him to talk about his stand and his story, about how he got the idea of the world wide phenomenon, Flaming Coconuts and his Coconut Shy stand.

With his head down and a sad look in his eyes, Gorix wandered around the Space Station... He felt desolated, as he managed to collect almost all of the coins on the Space Station Coins page of his stamps album… almost all of them. One coin was still missing, the most precious one, which he had never even heard of being found by anyone in whole space. Completing this collection was one of the greater dreams of the resistance hero since his childhood times with Parlax, who also shared such ambitions. With no destination, carelessly walking around, Gorix stumbled across his spacial partner Cylara. The little, although brave, cybunny soon enough noticed that something was not right with her dear friend: — Cheer up, Gorix! Try to relax once in a while - said Cylara. — I can’t, Cylara… For years I have been trying to complete my Space Station Coins album, I am only missing one single coin, but I have never even heard of anyone ever finding it. The rare Smiling Space Faerie Coin. — Oh, if that is what haunts you then I will help you, my friend! Come on, let’s search for clues at the Space Station, I am positive that someone or something will be able to provide us with some hints! What do you say?

"It's Just a Game" by vicunas
I’m telling you right now, Roo Island is going to win the whole thing. the bespeckled Orange Blumaroo wrote in her neomail. The Roo Island native sent the message to her friend Jia, who across Neopia in Shenkuu. While waiting for Jia’s reply, Kiri bit into a piece of kiwi; lost in thought about what plays the team could possibly do. Finally done daydreaming and snacking, Kiri discovered Jia already responded. Dude, no way. Shenkuu got second place their first cup, they have been training and now they have to do better so Timu can show the rest of Altador she is just as good as them. I’m confident we’re winning this year. Kiri considered this, but she knew in reality Roo Island was going to wipe the floor with Shenkuu better than the Yurble Janitor in the Hall of Heroes. You know what would be cool..., Kiri began to type, if we could go see the Shenkuu verses Roo Island game together this year. Though the idea sounded far fetched, Kiri wanted nothing more than to see a real live game at the Altador Cup and to meet her best friend from Shenkuu. She first met the Spotted Lupe last year on the Altador Cup boards. Since they acknowledged each other, they found out they both liked the same music

"Varanna" by 579201&issue=869
A tiny babith born just two months ago was making her way to Shenkuu. Ever since the day after she was born she had felt a pull in her heart. Her mother and siblings didn’t seem to know what she was feeling and she stopped trying to explain when she began getting strange looks. Her mother explained the world around them and told them getting painted was one of the best rewards an owner could bestow upon a petpet. Mother was painted Christmas which was nice, the lights twinkled when she smiled and the warmth they gave off was soothing. Percet, a fiery Scorchio, was flying toward Shenkuu. A backpack filled with all his belongings was strapped to his back. He let out a breath of steamy air before descending. He had an appointment to meet with the shop owner of Fanciful Fauna and perhaps obtain employment there. Percet had always been a dreamer, coming up with dozens of ways to earn neopoints but somehow through no fault of his own, his plans always fizzled and he remained broke; usually hungry and broke. Why was it so hard to make a few neopoints?Entering the shop, Percet smiled as he gazed at the various petpets. There were plenty of Dandans, Biyakos, and Jumas frolicking around. He even glimpsed a majestic looking Quilin. He would love working here.
