Rare Item Codes

by saddlehag

Since winning a trophy last year in the Poetry Contest, I have had a number of inquiries about Rare Item Codes and I have seen a continuing interest in them on Chat boards. This article will explain what they are, how they are available, and how you can get some yourself.

What are Rare Item Codes?

Rare Item Codes are alphabetical codes which are on NeoPet-related items sold in Southern California. Originally, the NeoPet-related items were sold only on November 10, 2001 at only four stores. Items available for purchase included stuffed animals (also known as plushies), T-shirts, stickers, jewelry, and notebooks. In most cases, the Rare Item Codes are located within the packaging of the items, or in the case of notebooks, within the front cover. On November 10th, if you went to one of these four stores, you could also receive a postcard which contained a Rare Item Code.

How Do I Redeem a Rare Item Code?

Once you have your code, go to Grundo Warehouse at the Space Station. Type in the code as instructed. The Rare Item Code, once activated, will give you an item for use in Neopia. The Rare Item Code can only be used one time for one item. These items are rare because they are only available from the merchandise. The items are not for sale in any of the stores in Neopia, including the Hidden Tower. The items are varied and include plushies, amulets, books, posters, weapons, and even some clothing. Have you seen a Snowager plushie or a Mystery Island poster? These are but two examples of the items redeemed from a Rare Item Code.

How Can I Get a Rare Code?

Luckily, the four stores that were part of the original sale in November were allowed to sell out of their inventory. They are: Aah's in Torrance and Santa Monica, Puzzzlezoo, also in Santa Monica, and Sanrio Surprises in Northridge. They can be contacted by telephone and you may be able to make arrangements for sales in that manner. Or you can wait. Yes, wait. NeoPets has promised a new release of merchandise later this year in more locations, including Asia. Then maybe you too can be lucky enough to have your photo taken with a giant Scorchio.
