14th and 15th September
  • The latest issue of the Neopian Times is now live! Packed full of stories, comics and articles, its a great way to start your weekend off with a bang :)


  • We changed it so that message boards don't get auto-deleted as fast as they used to. We put a time limit on them to save our database (and the sanity of our monitors), but it isn't long enough, especially on General Chat.

  • Three extremely rare Haunted Woods stamps have been added to the Stamp Album, including a foil stamp, a holographic stamp, and this one that seems to have a rather bizarre misprint.

    Fifteen quid for a stamp?!?!

  • Usuki Frenzy and Dubloon Disaster now come with 50% extra Neopoints! We do monitor the average Neopoints given per game, and these two were amongst the lowest.

  • Now we will be removing Neopets that have had their owners frozen from the Book Award and the Gourmet Club, it's only fair really.

Friday the 13th - Techo Day
  • For anyone who missed out getting a Doglefox, Babaa, or Noil plushie last month, Claire's is restocking all of their US stores this week!!
