Quote of the Week


Being a baby Pteri is risky business; more risky than zapping your dream pet! For example, one day my owner decided to take me restocking with her. BIGGEST MISTAKE OF MY SMALL, UN-LIVED TO THE FULLEST, LIFE.


Ink Frames: Style



Four new foregrounds are hitting store shelves across Neopia (or, well, trading post shelves), and they're sparking fashion sense—and empty-wallet sense—in everyone who sees them. Use them right, and they'll spice up any outfit. Use them wrong, and you'll end up with what looks like a giant paint splatter. Ink Frames, of course. They're expensive, as anything this popular would be, with the cheapest ones being around 180k. But the price is well worth it...

Usukis: More Love?



Finally! It's the day every Usuki Lover dreams of. While everyone is off at the Annual Usuki Doll Convention, staying in line for over twelve hours just to buy the newest and greatest member of the Usuki Collection series, a Solid Gold Usuki Doll with a matching solid gold tiara and necklace wearable* for your special little neopet, don't forget to dig deep inside your toy box and give a little love to those Usuki Dolls that aren't on every little Usul's birthday list...

"One Usuki Fanatic, One Important Lesson" by thediractor
Usukis. Tallie lived for them. Every inch of her room was painted, wallpapered, or carpeted Usuki pink. "Usuki Frenzy" and other doll-themed posters covered her walls. Her bedspread was printed with Usukis. Boxes for her Usuki sets were stacked neatly in a pyramid. All of them were empty - that was because inside her walk-in closet they were all being used...

"Floating is the First Step" by vortex_paula2
"You stop that right now or I'll drop you in the water," I threaten her as convincingly as I can, narrowing my turquoise eyes. This is enough for her to stop struggling, but she continues to blubber like a baby. "I- I- you can't- I want... Waaaah!!!" Nothing attracts more attention than a crying Neopet, and sure enough, strangers on the beach are quick to give us funny looks. "Fine," I sigh...

"A Day in the Life of a Larnikin Soldier" by 1335512
I can barely keep my eyes open anymore. I don't know how much walking I could do between all these purple gems anyway. But wait! Yay! My owner just put me and the other Larnikin soldiers in the hospital and collected the gems. Oooh, that feels really good. They've got the most comfy beds in here, and really scrumptious food. Some mornings I wish I could...
