Tarla's Non-Toolbar Treasures

Heads up! Even though the prize animation is Flash-based, you do not need Flash activated to collect the prize. Simply visiting the Tarla page will reward the item prize straight into your inventory, so you can do this from your phone.

Tarla's Non-Toolbar Treasures is a giveaway page on Neopets hosted by none other than Tarla the Ixi. For short periods of time throughout the day, Tarla may be "in" and if you visit this page at the same time that she is in, you will be awarded an item prize!

Back in the day, this giveaway worked in conjunction with a downloadable Neopets toolbar that you could install on your Internet browser. An icon on the toolbar would blink to alert you when Tarla was issuing prizes. This toolbar is no longer available, but the giveaway page still functions and gives away prizes at various times throughout the day on random days.

What will you win?

When is Tarla In?

Tarla will only be good to give prizes on some days, and will give no prizes on other days. When you navigate to the giveaway page while Tarla is not in, you will see one of two messages: one that says "Tarla is at the prize warehouse right now. Check back later to see if she's here!" which means she is good to award prizes during every prize period that day; or a page that says "Tarla is busy with her other chores today. Check back tomorrow to see if she's back!" which means she will award no prizes for that entire day.

Tarla is at the prize warehouse right now. Check back later to see if she's here! - or - Tarla is busy with her other chores today. Check back tomorrow to see if she's back!
Will Tarla will award prizes today, or is she hiding?

On days that she is good to appear, Tarla will be available once for 15 minutes each within 4 different intervals. Within these designated time periods, she will come starting no sooner than :10 minutes into a random hour, and first appear no later than :45 minutes into the hour. If she appears later in the hour, she may remain available through the end of the hour only. The time frames during which Tarla can appear are listed below, in NST - with the exception of the first 10 minutes of any hour.

  • 1:10 AM - 5:45 AM
  • 7:10 AM - 11:45 AM
  • 1:10 PM - 5:45 PM
  • 7:10 PM - 11:45 PM

Prizes

Tarla awards a variety of prizes, including books, Petpets, toys, weapons and more. Most prizes are not very valuable, but you may occasionally find a Paint Brush or Lab Map piece being given away. Tarla also awards a few r90+ items that are useful to save for Charity Corner.

Tarla issues two types of prize: referred to as the "main" and "drop" prizes.

Main Prize

The main prize is only awarded during the first 3 minutes of Tarla's appearance, and this main prize is the same for everybody, across all prize periods for the whole day.

Drop Prize

The drop prize, also known as the "secondary" prize or just not main, is the prize that Tarla awards for the 12 minutes following the main prize issuance. When you catch Tarla during the drop period, she'll appear to be walking away.

Lucky you. Tarla dropped a few things on her way out. Wuzzle
So lucky.

The drop prize can be any of the following items, and unlike the main prize will be randomly issued from the pool for everybody who catches it.

Prize Limit

If you receive a prize from Tarla, regardless of whether it's a main or drop, she will refuse to give you any further prizes that day, even if you manage to catch her again. If you have already received a prize for the day but visit the page again while she is awarding prizes, you will see a message where Tarla instructs about the prize limit: "I can only give you one prize per day!"

Tarla says: I can only give you one prize per day!
Don't get greedy, now!

Strategy

To catch Tarla when she's awarding prizes, a common strategy is to simply refresh the prize page every three minutes after a time period starts. Some say that Tarla is most likely to appear towards the beginning of each time period (approximately the first hour or hour and a half), so you may be more successful focusing on refreshing consistently during this time as opposed to later in the time period.

You can also hang around on the Games Neoboard. Sometimes (but not always) there will be a helpful Neopian who posts a new topic alerting others that Tarla is currently awarding prizes.

Sometimes, Tarla's drop prizes are more valuable than the main prizes. If you find out what the main prize for the day is before actually collecting it yourself and learn it's very low in value, you may want to consider purposely delaying your visit to Tarla's prize page by a few minutes in order to receive a randomized drop prize instead of the main. You may just get a better prize... or not!
