Shadow in the Kadoatery

Top 5 Baby Neopets for Beginners

So, you've finally saved up enough Neopoints for that ever-elusive Baby Paintbrush, or maybe you got a lucky visit from Jacko the Phantom Painter! Whatever the case may be, you have your Baby Paintbrush ready to go, and your goal in mind- get one of those adorable, angelic-looking Baby Neopets, stat! But wait! Have you stopped to consider which Neopet species will be the best choice for you and your Neo-family? Did you know that each Neopet species, ESPECIALLY as babies, requires vastly different amounts and methods of care? Well fear not, dear reader! As the proud owner of several Baby Neopets myself, I'm here to let you know the top six Baby Neopets for beginners! 6.) Baby Kiko Baby Neopets can be fussy, picky, and they're notorious for getting into everything! At the very least, however, you won't have that last problem with the oh-so-adorable Baby Kiko, as they don't even have legs! As long as you and your Baby Kiko stay on dry land, you'll never lose track of your new Pet. Enter the water with your Baby Kiko, however, and all bets are off... 5.) Baby Kougra You may have heard the stories of Baby Kougras being difficult, particularly when it comes to their destructive tendencies, but I'm here to tell you that that is not the case UNLESS you let your Baby Kougra stay bored for a long period of time, and I'm sure you wouldn't do that, dear reader! Regular nail clipping is an essential part of Kougra grooming, and Babies are no exception. Keep your Baby Kougra's nails trimmed and make sure to provide them with plenty of toys and mental stimulation (same as you would with any Baby Neopet!), and you'll soon find a Pet that is not only ludicrously adorable, but curious, smart, and a lightning fast learner! I've known several Baby Kougras to be brainiacs who read hundreds of books a day, even going on...
