Quote of the Week

"Oh, it's just a little trick I picked up on my home planet; the art of telekinesis. Moving objects with your mind. Quite tricky to master, but it comes in very handy for us Mallow Grundos!"

Quintessential Quiggles

As we celebrate Quiggle Day, I thought it would be interesting to take an in depth look at the Quiggle species. Quiggles were originally known as Frogstomps and were introduced to Neopia on the 18th Day of Eating, Year 2. Just a few months later the Frogstomp evolved into the Quiggle.

We buried him in one of these graves when we were playing hide and seek. He never came to find us. Do you think he's still here?"
