07/21/11 - Invaluable Ice got a much needed overhaul. The layout has pretty much stayed the same, but I went with a new color scheme and tried to bring the graphics a bit more up to date.

03/02/10 - The Bori images in the directory section weren't displaying properly. Not sure what broke them exactly, but they should be showing up again.

01/01/10 - I just came back from a two month hiatus to find that I won the Site Spotlight! Woohoo! Thank you to everyone that has mailed to congratulate me. I very much appreciate your kind words!

10/03/09 - Submitted Invaluable Ice for the Site Spotlight. Wish me luck!

10/02/09 - New layout and new sections for lookups and matching petpets added.

02/14/09 - Site is finally up and running.

Would you like to see your Ice Bori featured in the directory? Feel free to neomail me on my main account. Please include your Bori's name and I'll get him or her added as soon as possible! :)

Add one of these banners to your Bori's lookup to show that they will never be UFT!




Tired of trying to zap an Ice petpet for your Bori? Don't get frustrated! There are plenty of other petpets that match Ice Bori well. Why not try one of these?

Invaluable Ice is best viewed in Firefox, Opera, Safari, and Chrome. There might be some issues in IE, but I blame that on the browser. :P


On September 30th, 2004, Neopians noticed a new link on their sidebar that took them to a page where they could download a Neopets/Yahoo Toolbar. The best part about downloading this toolbar was that it would grant you the ability to create a pet of a new species, the Bori. After waiting a bit over a week, there was a note in the news letting users know that they could finally create their new Bori, if they had downloaded the toolbar. Those lucky users could choose which color they wanted their Bori to be from the following options: Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, and of course, Ice! They also had the choice of whether they wanted to create a brand new pet, or turn one of their existing pets into the Bori.

You cannot make an Ice Bori via painting, labbing, Fountain Faerie Quest, or any other method. Downloading the toolbar was the only way to get one. Also, if you try to abandon an Ice Bori in the pound, they will automatically convert into a Blue Bori, this makes Ice Bori very rare today.

Note: Ice Bori can be moved between accounts via transfer without converting to blue, so they can be traded.

If you downloaded the toolbar all those years back, but never created your Bori, you can still create your own by clicking here. Users who can still create an Ice Bori will see the following page:

Thank you to uniquecat for this  screenshot!
Note: According to my sources, the "Create a Bori" page will give you a 404 error, so you must Morph an existing pet into the Bori.

After selecting "Morph a Current Pet!", you'll will be brought to a page asking which pet you'd like to morph:

Choose "Ice" from the dropdown menu and you will be brought to a page congratulating you on your new Ice Bori! It's that simple!

Thank you to uniquecat for the above screenshots! :)

Week 160

I downloaded the toolbar and I got it. I was wondering how do I get the chance to adopt the Bori? It's so cute! And how does getting the frozen paintbrush work?

Everyone who has downloaded the toolbar will get the chance to create their own Bori in a week's time. The frozen Bori will be one of the colour choices you can create. For example you can choose to have red, green, blue, yellow or ice. There will be no paint brush. Note - you wont have anything in your account as yet.


I was wondering, if we downloaded the toolbar, we get an ice Bori, but what if we already have 4 pets? Would we need to abandon one of the pets we already have for the ice Bori? Or... could we PLEASE be allowed to have 5 pets? Hopefully? Please? Pretty Please? 0=)

I am afraid you will need to have just three Neopets if you want to create an Ice Bori, or in fact create any other Neopet. We couldn't let you have five Neopets, that just wouldn't be fair to anyone else. On the bright side if you really cant bear to part with any of your existing Neopets there will be Bori Morphing Potions released later on. You just won't be able to get an Ice Bori.

Note: See Editorial Week 161 below.

Week 161

Will you be releasing an ice bori morphing potion?

Not for general release now, but if you do have four pets and you are eligible for the Ice Bori you will be given the option of changing one of your existing pets. I know we said this would not be the case last week, but due to popular demand we changed our minds :)

Week 162

Will lab ray users be able to get a ice bori by using the ray, or will it be a color you can only get if you downloaded the toolbar?

No, you can only get an Ice Bori if you downloaded the toolbar. We will be adding many more colours for Bori though so don't be too sad if you didnt get a chance to get the Ice one.

Week 167

I think there should be a morphing potion or a chance from the lab ray to get and Ice-colored Bori. My friend who does Neopets said he got an Ice Bori the day they were released to the public! You didnt say that was gonna happen! Oh, and I wont stop nagging till you give in ;)

Well, we really don't want to devalue the prize of getting an Ice Bori for the people who took part in the offer, but maybe we could make it a super super super rare lab ray thing. I said maybe though, I will need to check with Adam about this.

Note: It is not possible to zap an Ice Bori.

Week 169

I have an ice bori, and it is REALLY boring. It can't fight well, it is picky, and it is always getting sick, but there is no way to get rid of it, is there? If there is, I would like to know, and if not, then I really think that there should be!

Well if you are sure you want to get rid of your EXTREMELY rare and expensive Neopet that very few people own, you can always drop him off in the pound. I am sure he will find a good owner in seconds.

Note: Do NOT pound your Ice Bori! It will turn Blue!


Why isn't the Ice Bruce made of Ice like the Ice Bori?

That is because we thought it would be cuter as a Brucicle :)


Do Ice Boris melt in the summer time?

Nope, they are guaranteed not to melt. Same as the Ice Bruces.

Week 285

Hi TNT, if you recall, back when the toolbar (I think) came out the first people to sign up were able to get an ice Bori. I could have sworn there was an ice paint brush for this, but ice paint brushes seem to have disappeared off the face of Neopia now. Did you guys delete or replace the item? If so, is there any possibility of the brush coming back? Thanks.

Sorry, but Ice Paint Brushes do not exist, nor have they ever. Aside from the unique ice Bori offer for the toolbar way back when (which was a completely different toolbar than the one currently available, by the way), the only way to turn a Neopet ice is through the Secret Lab Ray. The toolbar ice Bori was available through a special area of the site. You could create a new one or morph one of your current Neopets into one. No paint brush was needed.

Week 288

Hi TNT. I was wondering if you could tell me why nobody can paint their Neopet ice? I have an ice Neopet named Syleaf and I was wondering... if you pound an ice Neopet, will it turn blue? I was told that on a board and I wasn't sure if that was true or not because I got my Neopet, Syleaf, from the pound and he was still ice when I got him. Thanks.

With the exception of the ice Bori, ice Neopets are created via the Lab Ray. Ice Bori were awarded to those who participated in a special offer and will not remain ice coloured if they are pounded. This does not happen to any other species of ice-coloured Neopet.

Week 342

Okay, I know I already submitted a question once today, but I really need both of these answered. I know that, once you abandon an ice Bori, it turns blue. If I were to transfer mine, would it still turn blue or stay ice?

Transferring your ice Bori will not turn it blue.
