The Alien Aisha Vending Machine is a game run by a small army of Alien Aishas.

For a small (or perhaps large) price - a single Nerkmid - you can try your luck at winning a prize and some Neopoints. If your Neopoint reward is large enough, you may even qualify for a trophy! The first time you play the Vending Machine you will also receive an avatar.

How To Play

To play the Vending Machine, simply travel over to the Neopian Plaza, or the Vending Machine directly. Once there, click the button that says "Press me to Continue!". Make sure that you have at least one Nerkmid in your inventory, as this is required to play. The machine will ask you to select a combination of levers and buttons - your selection will not have an effect on the prize that you receive.

Obtaining Nerkmids

There are currently four confirmed methods for obtaining Nerkmids:

Types of Nerkmids

Below is a list of the different types of Nerkmids. You can also view more details about them in our Item Database by clicking on the item image.


There is a large prize pool for the Vending Machine. The different prizes are listed below. Chances of winning each type of prize are:

  • Gross Food - 70%
  • Nerkmid - 15%
  • Fading Bottled Faerie - 10%
  • "Paint Brush" Item - 5%

There is no conclusive data about whether or not different Nerkmids give out different prizes. That being said, using expensive Nerkmids is no more likely to earn you a Paint Brush than the cheapest Nerkmid available.

Please note that you will always receive Neopoints in addition to one item when you play the Vending Machine.


You may be awarded anywhere between 1 NP to 86,000 NP or more, but the majority of NP rewards are under 2000 NP. The chances of higher NP rewards are exponentially lower for every 10,000 NP extra.

High Scores and Trophies

Your score on the high score table is equal to the amount of Neopoints you receive from the machine using a single Nerkmid (which, of course, is based on luck). Using additional Nerkmids only changes your high score if the Neopoints you receive is higher than your previous highest trial. (In other words, it is not accumulative.)

It's advantageous to spend Nerkmids at the beginning of the month after the table has been wiped for the beginning of the month, as later in the month there will have been more lucky people with large amounts of NP that came through already.

Fading Bottled Faeries

You may receive any Fading Bottled Faerie.

Other Prizes

You may receive any Gross Food item that is rarity 98 and below, any Nerkmid, and any item up to rarity 150 with the word "Paint Brush" in it.

Rarity 150 and Below "Paint Brush" Items »

On July 5, 2019, twenty-seven non-Paint Brush items had their names updated to either "Paintbrush" or "PaintBrush" so they are no longer part of the Vending Machine prize pool.


There's also an avatar that you will earn the first time you play the Vending Machine.
