Ten Advent Calender Toys To Keep Away From Your Pets

by happytimewithmilk


While we all know and love the Advent Calender every year that we are in Neopia, some of the toys that it gives out can be a little... unsafe. So I took the time to put together a list of items that you shouldn't let your Neopets have! Remember, these are only suggestions. If you choose to endanger your Neopet, that is up to you!

1. Scourgies Covered Ixi Plushie

KEEP IT AWAY! It might be contagious! This was given out by the Advent Calendar in Y13.

I'm not sure about you, but anytime that the description warns you away, you should probably stay away. Scourgies have completely covered this otherwise fun Ixi plushie. I'm not sure who decided to hand out this plushie but be sure to stay away, I'm pretty sure it's contagious. Do you really want your Neopet to get sick and then infect others, and perhaps yourself?

2. Pull Along MSPP

This is one toy you might not want following you. This was given out by the Advent Calendar in Y14.

This is horrible. The last thing you want for your Neopet is to have MSPP following after you! Are you aware how malevolent that plushie is? MSPP stand for Malevolent Sentient Poogle Plushie. Malevolent is even in it's name! You really want a likeness of that thing following you around? You do? It's all on you then, pal.

3. Fun Toy Laser Light Gun

So this is how they make the pretty lights. This was given out by the Advent Calendar in Y11.

"Fun"? Really? It is definitely NOT good when "fun", "laser", "light", and "gun" are together in the same name! This is not how they make the pretty lights! The pretty lights are NOT made by firing a laser gun that looks like Sloth himself made it!

4. Adorable Hex Doll

The adorable doll is sure to make your Neopet happy. This was given out by the Advent Calendar in Y10.

Another thing to remember is that when they tell you multiple times that something is "adorable", it's really not. Sure sure, this little hex doll may look adorable on the outside but I am not tricked. It's a dangerous voodoo doll! Don't let your Neopets play with voodoo!

5. Ghosts of Days of Giving Action Figures

Eek, the ghosts of Days of Giving past, present, and future! This was given out by the Advent Calendar in Y14.

Did you know that the main thing these are known for was haunting poor Neopians and forcing them to change their lives? Well, these action figures might not be the real thing, but do you really want your Neopet playing around with something like that? Do not let them play with these.

6. Geraptiku Play Set

This play set comes with miniature traps to throw your Neopets figures into! This was given out by the Advent Calendar in Y12.

This one is just sick. Do you want to know how many days I've been lost in Geraptiku? Way too many. To make a joke, a playset out of this? You can even trap your characters! Sick. Geraptiku is a near tomb that should not be mocked. You'd feel the same way if you've been trapped there for three solid days straight just because you wanted some treasure... Don't let your Neopets play with this cruel toy.

7. Screaming Sophie Toy

Wind it up and listen to the frightened screams of a young Sophie. What a strange toy. This was given out by the Advent Calendar in Y8.

My ears! Once you wind up this toy ONCE, it will never stop screaming! The screams are terrible. This Sophie toy just screams and screams and does not stop! Even if you lock the toy in another part of your Neohome, you will still hear it crystal clear. The best thing to do is to never let it into your life. Trust me, my friend, keep it away!

8. Triangle Ringing Cybunny

This annoying toy will ring its triangle all day. This was a prize from the Advent Calendar in Y6.

Another terrible sound one! Annoying does not even cover this thing. The ringing of the triangle is worse than nails on a chalkboard. Worse than the most horrible sound you know of. I believe the folks at the Advent Calender are actually pure evil and just want to torque the ears of all Neopets.

9. Miniature Wheel of Monotony

We heard you liked spinning the Wheel of Monotony... Now you can spin the Wheel of Monotony while spinning the Wheel of Monotony! This was given out by the Advent Calendar in Y12.

I can't say anything about the description besides this: pure nonsense. No one likes to spin the wheel of monotony! Once you start to spin it, you will literally be there for days and days on end. I've known a few Neopians who started spinning the wheel the first day it came out. Guess what? They are still waiting for it to stop spinning! A miniature version of that monster?! You do not want your Neopet to get involved with something like this. Avoid it.

10. Thief-in-a-Box

Its a trap! This was given out by the Advent Calendar in Y13.

Even the description is trying to help you out! It's a trap! How could a toy named "Thief-in-a-box" even pretend to be good for your Neopet? Please avoid.


Dancing Rosie Doll

Awww now you can watch Rosie dance all of the time! This was given out by the Advent Calendar in Y11.

Last but not least, we have a dancing Rosie doll. This one is without a doubt the worst one. Rosie is known for stealing the spotlight and taking everything for herself. Just look at her! She is more vile than a mutant Gnorbu, ugh!

I tried to warn you, I did. The sake of your Neopet's well-being relies on you. Please be wary of these toys! Maybe one day Neopia will be free of misguiding toys that endanger your Neopets. Thanks for reading!
