You Better Watch Out, You Better Not Pout….
Happy Valley - Well, Halloween is over and that means has Bruces are testing their
ice skating skills, and Usuls are gathering fruit. Christmas is closer then you
think. Neopet Owners are cleaning out their closets and the decorations will be
up in just a few weeks. So, that means Santa will be awaiting those cookies and
milk, and then for a few months afterward yell at anyone who dares to stick a
crumb of cookie in his dinner. However, this doesn't stop the price for gifts
to increase rapidly, and if that means saving your money now that by all means…
do! I've complied a list of what's hot and what's not this holiday season, and
what to do if your low on dough.
What's going to be hot this holiday season:
Paint Brushes: Always a favorite, and always very expensive. It's all
the rage in Neopia right now and don't forget that the paint brush collection
isn't complete! Upon observation of the increase in Neopoints, I found that
the cheapest price for the baby paint brush was around 10000 NP. I bet I know
someone who could purchase that (points to Adam). The hottest paint brushes
right now is the baby paint brush, Christmas paint brush, and Darigan paint
brush. Each ranging anywhere in price from 10000 to 60000 NP. I would suggest
that you get going and saving up your NP if you want a Christmas paint brush.
Last year, I wanted my Bruce to be a Christmas Bruce so bad. I knew that the
price would be very high so I did everything I could to gain NP, anything from
playing the free games daily to putting up things in the Auction House. I found
a good price on one and bought it right away! I even had enough money to buy
a transformation potion, and if you can't afford a paint brush, those potions
are the next best thing!
PetPet Paint Brushes: Yet, another favorite for the Holiday season.
Last year's Advent Calendar we (or more along the lines of those who went to
collect their daily goodies) received a PetPet paint brush. The whole concept
of allowing your PetPet to change looks is very trendy! But, the point being
if your PetPet doesn't have the Christmas feature yet then it's not worth it.
Those little paint brushes cost almost as much as a regular paint brush! I wouldn't
recommend you try and purchase one this Holiday Season if want your PetPet to
look good, it's not worth the saving, and if you don't like the Christmas look
for your PetPet, then you've just wasted money! Of course you can always give
it to a Neofriend for the holidays, because believe it or not, they care about
the holidays too and it's just as nice to give something, then get something.
Codestones: Yet, there are still very much in style. They are excellent
little collective stones and are very useful when you want to help your pet's
stats. But, they are very high in price. Ranging in price from 200,000 to around
300,000 NP. I would suggest you try and play Tombola as much as you can, try
for everyday. Because if your lucky enough you might just win! Try spending
some time in and around Mystery Island, sometimes you can find them on the floor!
Jelly: What is up with jelly these days? More, and more people are
hooked on this food that jiggles! If you find yourself in Jelly World one day,
don't be surprised! If you have some money to spend for the holiday you can
buy anything that is in jelly form! Cheese, Cereal, Rats oh my! This is a great
way to get your pet happy, and most importantly healthy, it's very creative
idea for a holiday gift (or Secret Santa)! So, head on over to Jelly World (insert
hyperlink here), yeah like I was going to tell you where it is! Or may I'm just
not telling the truth, and there is not Jelly World out there! The world of
Neopia will never know!
Snowballs: Still very famous, and a must have for any Battledome Player
out there. I still don't understand why some people who want to throw a mixture
of mud and snow at their enemy, or why a rainbow effect on your Pet would be
a honor in it's self. But, however these snowballs shoot up in price, sure you
have find them at the Advent Calendar, but it's still crazy how many people
go and purchase them! I own a few Snowballs, and believe you me it comes in
handy, but still be forward what the price will sky rocket to. Anywhere from
1000 NP and above, if you see a price that is below 1000, then do buy and stock
up! They don't last very long!
Bottled Faeries: One of the best gifts anyone could ask for! These
little Faeries come in Dark, Light, Fire, and Earth. They give your pet special
abilities that help in the Battledome and more. These little gifts sent from
heaven only last once, and you can only use them on ONE pet. They are very high
in price and you don't get them to often. They can range in price from about
4450 and above, and be as high as 5000 NP! So if you have one to spare, do give
it to a Neofriend as they will do amazing things and help in the long run!
Bottle of Sand: The point is that this hot item is just for show. They
come in red, black, blue, invisible, and I wouldn't think twice about having
one that is jelly sand (*tries not to think about it*) They are a must have
if you are looking to make your galley better, and you find them along the shore
of Mystery Island. They can however be cheap, if you find the right time to
purchase them. You can also keep it as a friendship "trinket", if anything.
Adopting another Pet: If you have one-three pets, this might be a good
idea. For the holiday season just take some time out of you busy schedule to
go and take a look at the Pound. Why not take in a pet for the Holiday season?
Every Christmas so far I've gone to the pound and adopted a pet! Just think
of how sad they are because their pervious owner left them? How cold they must
be! Think about the little one's and adopt a pet today!
What's not so hot this holiday season:
Sludge: What is up with this gray pile of, well whatever sludge consist
of that many Neopet players like? On, any typical Neopet day that you log in
and move your furniture into your home you see that most of the sludge based
furniture is taking over one's home. So, my question to all of those Sludge
fanatics out there, why do you like this gray slab of smelling rotten piece
of , well whatever this thing may be made up of! Sure, it's a neohobby in it's
self, but why spend countless amounts of Neopoints picking up Key Rings, Sludge
based drinks and Pie! I don't think that your Neopet wants to eat anything that
contains of sludge, and I don't think that your Neofriend wants anything to
do with it either. So I say to you today, for the holidays don't go as low as
handing over a pile of sludge, because it is not worth anything and it's not
going to get you any more money, because Sludge is just gray, dull, and you
can't make a living off of it.
The Neo "holiday" Blues: Nothing is worse then having your pet get
sick right before the big Holiday happenings! So be careful where you ponder
this holiday season. If one of your pets does happen to catch something, head
straight over to the hospital and look up what your pet has. You can easily
find what your pet caught by doing a quick reference and scrolling to the bottom.
There you will see a red cross and it says Warning: (Insert your pet name here)
is suffering from (disease name is said here). After you look up the name of
the disease it will list what medication will help your pet. So head on over
and look for it, because being sick for the holidays isn't anything anyone likes!
Neither is giving a disease either! NEVER give your Neofriends anything that
looks damaged, mucus driven, glowing, or mummified. Because, if they are a newbie
to the Neopets world, they'll feed it to their pet and then cry when they can't
afford the medication. Or else, you'll be a bowl of hot water very soon!
Pile of Dung: This is the one that started it all, dung! This is not
a good idea when buying something for you pet. The good thing about this pile
of dung is that it can be molded into furniture for your NeoHome. But, considering
the fact that a dung arm chair can be 253 NP, your thinking that it's going
to make your life much easier and you won't have to give your first born Neopet
to Santa Adam in exchange. However, this pile of dung isn't going to keep your
NeoHome very happy and healthy, I bet it is known to even have your pet's get
a little sick. I'm not sure either one of pet's want to sit down or go to bed,
so you better start thinking about demolishing your house! This is not very
good, as one may see. So, do your Neofriends and yourself a favor, don't give
or buy anything that is dung!
What to do when your low on dough:
Free Games (daily): If your low on dough and it just want to make your
holiday a little more pleasant this holiday season, start going to the free
games every single day! The main games that are free to play are Coltzan's Shrine,
Tombola, Healing Springs, and The Fruit Machine. If your lucky you can win anything
from Codestones, to money, to increased status for you pet!
Make a Neofriend: Either someone who can you trust, or someone that
goes to your school in real life. That way, you can do a Secret Santa! You can
keep the item, or auction it off for a nice amount of Neopoints.
The Giving Tree: Even though it is hard to grab anything from the Giving
Tree, you might be extremely lucky one day and grab something! Keep try, don't
Well, that seems to be it for this Holiday tip-up! As one may find this very
useful, I suggest you start getting those cookies all ready! Happy Holidays
to one and all!
Author Notes: This is just simple a fun article, and it is here to help
you! Don't be offended if you like sludge or dung and feel that it is worth
something. The comments here are my personal opinion. I would like to thank
Neopets and the Neopian Auction House, I would also like to thank my pets, and
I would like to thank my computer for dealing with all the time it had to stay
awake, for me to type this.
