Sidebars 101

This guide is old! The old site sidebars below are from the previous Neopets layout. View Current Site Themes »

An addicting addition to Neopets is Sidebars. Like avatars, they are things you can unlock in special ways to change your sidebar from the default yellow. There aren't all too many sidebars, but one is added every few months or so.

Changing your sidebar:
To change your sidebar, you need to have one of course. Once you do, you'll need to visit your Preferences page, which is linked from the Help tab on the Neopets sidebar.

Below is a listing of all the sidebars in existence, the ways to get them, and what they look like. You can also click each image to get a full view of each section of the sidebar.

Also take note that whoever sends the card on Valentine's Day cannot get it back, and the recipient does not get it either. It disappears. (However, it won't disappear on any other day of the year!)

Winter Sidebar

During February 2005, this sidebar was available as a random event in Terror Mountain. Then, during the Advent Calendar in December 2005, it was available as a prize on December 31, 2005. There are requirements for getting the sidebar from the Advent, but those requirements are unknown. The editorial also says that time of day does not matter.

Event Icons:

Birthday Sidebar

You receive this sidebar on November 15th every year for Neopets Birthday and on the day in which your account is set for your birthday. You cannot unlock it to use all the time. This sidebar removes the advertisements and gives you a higher amount of Random Events.

Event Icons:

Halloween Sidebar

To get this sidebar, you had to either win the first Pumpkin Carving Random Contest or be on Neopets and refreshing at 11:59pm on October 31st.
