Loving the heart details on the Kacheek (hair) and the Draik (tail + chest)!
mavegibson, February 14, 2023 11:03 AM NST
All the subtle heart shapes throughout these. The scales along the Draik's back, the inside of the Aisha ears, the noses, the scales on the Draik's belly, the outline of the Kougra's eye, the Kacheek's hair, the tip of the Draik's tail....

I love that they put a heart around the eye of the Kacheek as well.

How am I going to decide which one!? And I need that collar for my alien Aisha!

Also can we talk about how cute that spyder is?!

Lol i was about to say that. I have not paid much attention to spyders but that's just...awwwww
mavegibson, February 14, 2023 11:05 AM NST
I can't wait to see the Valentine Vandagyre. That will likely be the winner for me, if they don't go too far overboard with it.
1jediboy, February 14, 2023 11:06 AM NST
That Spyder is on a cuteness-level of “Miss Spider’s Sunny Patch Friends!” 🥰🕷️
mavegibson, February 14, 2023 11:08 AM NST
Also I just noticed the outline of the Kacheek's belly and the outline of the tail tip are also heart shaped.

They did a good job of not making the heart motifs subtle enough that they aren't 'too much'.
parody_ham, February 14, 2023 11:09 AM NST
Awww these are so CUTE! I love that Draik and Kougra ahhhh
xamem, February 14, 2023 11:09 AM NST
They are all SO CUTE!!! I have a fountain quest I've been saving and I know what I'm using it for now!
glowrider, February 14, 2023 11:29 AM NST
"Oh they're SO CUTE!" "Oh, I love them!" "I've wanted this for so long, I'm so glad they did this!"

I guess the weather's fair today.

glad they put the brush in the hidden tower, would've been hell to get right away otherwise
biediep, February 14, 2023 11:44 AM NST
I was just thinking about this last night!!! How it was a color for petpets but not pets and OH MY GOSH I LOVE THEM! T_T And in the HT so no ridiculous prices and inflation. ♥
apophis324, February 14, 2023 12:00 PM NST
Time to unValentine this. This looks like it could be a very boring Paint Brush. It looks fine now, but it won't stop them from just pasting a bunch of hearts on a pink pet and call it a day.

But hey, what do I know? *eats a box of chocolates by himself*
fluffymcgerbilpants, February 14, 2023 12:06 PM NST
The mad lads actually did it, and thank goodness it's in the Hidden Tower.
biediep, February 14, 2023 12:11 PM NST
Oh man, I'd LOVE to see an "un-Valentine" PB that goes with all the "Gothic Valentine" and broken heart items XD
lasergu, February 14, 2023 12:14 PM NST
The Valentine Faellie is AMAZING :o
kisha, February 14, 2023 12:40 PM NST

Absolutely adorable! I want a Uni in this color
alphashadow, February 14, 2023 1:19 PM NST
this is such a good color, wow!
purplebin, February 14, 2023 1:29 PM NST
I was not interested in a Valentine Paint Brush, I'm not a huge fan of pink, but I think they did an amazing job on these!

Best Valentine's EVER, it's too hard to choose!

And big props to tnt for making this a buyable pb!

very cool! not my style but I know people have been asking for this for ages, and the colours themselves are very well done!

Super cute! Remember that discount day is tomorrow at the Hidden Tower! Wait if you can!
twocue, February 14, 2023 2:45 PM NST

monster__madness, February 14, 2023 3:49 PM NST
Do you think it will only be available on 14/2 every year or all throughout the year?
yekith, February 14, 2023 3:54 PM NST
I don't want a valentine pet...but I might have to get the PB just to add that Aisha collar to my collection...

Holy crows, they did it!! I love the subtle pink shading that looks kind of like blushing, it really accentuates the cuteness
candyplague, February 14, 2023 4:59 PM NST
THEY FINALLY DID IT...I LOVE THEM i instantly painted one of my kougras but they all look SO good ;o; i think the draik looks especially nice!!

A Colour long requested (especially after Petpets got their version of it last year), in-line with the Halloween & Christmas Colours, finally the day dedicated to love gets its due; The Valentine Colour is here!
From the four example Neopets we can figure out some traits that'll probably be shared among most, if not all, Valentine Neopets. For the most part its a simple palette pattern: a pink body with other pink hues (and white) hearts spotted around. How much of the body is covered with hearts will vary, looks like generally the entire body will be, though there will be exceptions like the Draik where they got more decorative and decided to limit the heart pattern to certain parts of the body.
That's pretty much the general aesthetic I see, so now we get into the details. From what I see so far, all the Neopets have additional traits to them, be it how the hearts are used around their body and/or slightly adjusting the line art. We'll go into each Species going from least changed to most changed:

* Kougra: Kougra & Kacheek actually demonstrate another thing some Valentine Neopets likely will have in common for those who have them: Noses will be re-shaped into a heart. Speaking of heart re-shaping, the Kougra gets a unqiue one with th patches around its eyes. Interestingly they removed all the Kougra's stripes, which has been done before for certain other Colours when the stripes would get in the way of a pattern or certain look they were going for, such as here. A final addition: the Kougra was given a cute pink bow around its neck, the only Valentine Neopet of the initial four to get unique clothing. With how little they changed with the Kougra, I imagined the bow was added to give it something notable about it; something which may very happen to other Valentine Neopets that TNT couldn't really do much else with (it may also not be a neck bow each time). For the first simple Valentine Neopet I'll give the Kougra a pass.

* Kacheek: In addition to its n
pikachu315111, February 14, 2023 6:00 PM NST
* Kacheek: In addition to its nose, the Kacheek gets two other changes: the chest line has been heart re-shaped, as well as the tail line, and finally the two hairs on the top of its head and curled into a heart shape. A few bits more than the Kougra (surprised the Kougra's ear clip wasn't heart re-shaped), though I do feel the Kacheek may have also been a Neopet needing a unique piece of clothing to give it something extra; like a bow tail. TNT likely thought the hair heart was enough of a standout feature (and I'm going to guess other Neopets with pieces of hair like that will get a similar treatment).

* Aisha: Aisha & Draik do something slightly different with the heart pattern. While the Kougra's and Kacheek's have a solid outline, the Aisha and Draik are dotted line, like the hearts are patched on. It's more obvious with the Aisha, who's face was specifically designed to have a (dotted line) hear on the forehead and cheeks. They left the patches around the eyes alone, though the antenna ears were heart re-shaped. And of course we can't forget about the Aisha collar, some Colours do something special with it, other's don't; Valentine is thankfully the former, changing the "A" tag into a heart with "XOXO" (higs and kisses, or is that kisses and hugs?) written on it. It's the standout detail here which I feel brings the entire look together.

* Draik: Now didn't they get fancy here! The segmented chest & undertail scales have been heart re-shaped, notably having a heart on the center of the chest. The back spikes and tail spade have also been heart re-shaped, a change I feel more notable than the segemented scales. My eyes are always drawn to the heart on the end of its tail before the face, which doesn't look to have been given any changes (not the ears or the hairs on its head). Also, since it breaks away with having the heart pattern all over its body, it's body is a pale pink as the other parts of its body are the darker pinks (thus where you eye

Also, since it breaks away with having the heart pattern all over its body, it's body is a pale pink as the other parts of its body are the darker pinks (thus where you eyes go to when you look at it); on its own nothing special but when with other Valentine Neopets looks pretty unique. The Draik gets two thumbs up from me!

Not really much to say about the Valentine Paint Brush, it does the job. It being placed in the Hidden Tower is a bit of a surprise, not unwelcomed as it means people will immediate access to the Colour, though I do feel they should have removed another PB. I think Baby Paint Brush's retirement is long overdue.

Valentine Faellie is alright though kind of hard to tell its meant to be Valentine (though ideal if you wanted a magenta Faellie). Valentine Spyder is funny and clever, I like it!

The Valentine Armor actually looks pretty cool, reminds me of the Yu-Gi-Oh! monster "Queen's Knight".
roshchodesh, February 14, 2023 6:04 PM NST
Why do the Aisha's hearts look stitched on?
pikachu315111, February 14, 2023 6:17 PM NST
@ roshchodesh:
Gives it a plush-like appearance which makes it look cute. A lot of things done with this Colour is going to be done for cuteness sake.
_moonlightsparks_, February 14, 2023 7:01 PM NST
I really hope the brush is available tomorrow on half price day......
roshchodesh, February 14, 2023 7:46 PM NST

oshichi, February 15, 2023 10:19 AM NST
I'm glad that this is a Hidden Tower item and hope that this color is as great as all the Baby neopet versions.
nobody, February 15, 2023 10:38 AM NST
I pumpkin spice cannot even, in a good way.
faellie_ridiculous, February 15, 2023 11:06 AM NST
Well, I suppose I will get one, but I was hoping for a slightly brighter color palette.

Why doesn't the Valentine Faellie look more like the Valentine Faellie Plushie? I love faellies though.
big_dee, February 15, 2023 11:07 AM NST
They need to do a blumaroo and reintroduce heart feet
faellie_ridiculous, February 15, 2023 11:26 AM NST
Well, I just purchased a PB from the HT at the discount and put it in my SDB awaiting other species.

I agree with you @big_dee - the blumaroo heart feet are darling!

Has it been decided whether it's a lab ray color?

@stracer I bought it last night.
pasqui - JN Staff, February 16, 2023 7:21 AM NST
@stracer We have seen one screenshot of someone getting it through the lab, yes! And while these can be faked, we have reason to believe it is a genuine screenshot, so yes, you should be able to get Valentine through the lab!
galifan, February 16, 2023 8:09 AM NST
@Dave -- URGEHT, PLEASE ADD A NOTE that the Fountain Faerie does NOT offer Valentine as an option-- yet. Maybe it's an oversight but there's nothing between Tyrannian and Water this morning, NO Valentine.
galifan, February 16, 2023 8:20 AM NST
@Dave -- OOPS! Never mind, please. My active wasn't one of the four species that *can* be painted Valentine so the option didn't appear for me. *Doh!*
stracer, February 16, 2023 2:11 PM NST
@nugget I ended up buying a brush too, I just was curious whether I should hold out for a lucky zap or not
