Neopets 24th Birthday Celebrations
  • Posted by Kenny
  • Posted on November 15, 2023, 3:57 am NST

UPDATE, 6:00 PM NST: The AMA code has been shared! You can redeem it at Grundo's Warehouse.

According to the AMA, this code will only be valid for 72 hours! (We do not know precisely when it will stop working, so we recommend to redeem it by the end of the Neopian day on Friday, November 17th, to be extra safe!)

Redeeming the code will award you the item 25 Recipes for 25 Years. Although it appears to be a book, it is a No-Trade item of category Gift with no interaction options.

We also now have a recap and links to rewatch the stream on our Monthly AMAs article:

Neopets is celebrating its 24th birthday today!

A variety of celebrations are happening throughout Neopia:

  • Need the "Happy Birthday!" avatar? Visit the New Features page today.
  • The Swashbuckling Academy is offering free training to all pets all day. If you've already enrolled for a course you haven't paid, just cancel and re-enroll to get the free course.
  • Treasure of the Black Pawkeet is free today and costs 150NP (half price) for the rest of November.
  • Neopians have increased chances of a good result at Coltzan's Shrine today.
  • The number of tickets for sale at the Ticket Booth is increased to 25,000 (instead of 5,000) today.
  • All users have access to the Birthday Site Theme on both the classic layout and the mobile revamp. This site theme increases your chances of Random Events.
  • For the next three days you may submit 5 scores for Neopoints on Flash games instead of the usual 3 until the end of Friday (17th). This applies to classic games only, not those on the beta site.

FREE NEOCASH! Make sure you visit the Neopets homepage to claim your free 750 NC. It will take awhile for it to show up on your account, as it needs to be processed and many folks are claiming it.

We wanted to celebrate our 24th Birthday by giving you 750 NC! We would have sent a birthday cake, but the frosting might give some a case of the neezles. Thank you so much for making Neopia such a special place!

Your gift will be added to your account shortly. Go spend it on something nice!

A free goodie bag is available at the NC Mall, available to claim on your sides as well. Inside, you'll find a foreground wearable:

Additionally, there is a limited time discount code available at the NC Mall through the goodie bag. Use Y25BIRTHDAY at the checkout to get a discount of 150 NC off any total purchase over 1,000 NC. This will last until the end of November 30th.

Neopets will also be hosting a live AMA with CEO Dom, support staffer Alice W, Art Advisor Anthony Conley, and Jellyneo staffer macosten tonight at 5pm NST. For more information, check out our guide:

Social media banner listing details of the livestream

Additionally, to celebrate the birthday, a new Poogle colour is available:


This is based on a design by Neopets user eyries_forever.

Happy Birthday, Neopets! Here's hoping this will be a good year..
woodstocki, November 15, 2023 5:37 AM NST
I hope that anniversary item code will be something you guys can share later. 5PM NST is 2 AM here, and I very much intend to be asleep.
debgil, November 15, 2023 6:06 AM NST
JN says 23rd birthday celebration in this post, then in next line says 24th. I see that has been corrected, but
TNT post says 25th Anniversary.
This old granny is confused.
kenny - JN Staff, November 15, 2023 6:52 AM NST
@debgil: we fixed the 23rd typo just before your comment!!

As for TNT, they are starting the "countdown" to 25, which definitely one way to think about a 24th birthday!
dillpickles, November 15, 2023 7:46 AM NST
*cough* Thursday (17th) should be Friday.

I'm wondering if they're going to do free NC again this year or not. IIRC last year, it didn't come out until partway through the day, so I guess that remains to be seen? Also hoping they do a pet slot discount again here soon.
hexen, November 15, 2023 9:06 AM NST
Hope they give out NC like last year... I just want that side-account claimable NC so I can buy more pet slots on my alts since it's the only way to legeally do so and I am currently aware of and am maxed out on pets otherwise.
caosmuerte, November 15, 2023 9:50 AM NST
so there won't be free NC?
myriamele, November 15, 2023 10:04 AM NST
I just received 750 NC, so it must just have been delayed.
myriamele, November 15, 2023 10:08 AM NST
Well, I should say I received a notice of a 'grant' for 750 NC, but it hasn't shown up in my account yet. So, be prepared to wait a bit
purplebin, November 15, 2023 10:37 AM NST
I can't get the mall to load at all now.
liontiger4states_06, November 15, 2023 10:51 AM NST
I just wait, so i just explore neopia currently.
annw, November 15, 2023 10:55 AM NST
The mail for the 7.50 didn't load for me on either my main or side account. Hoping I will still get it anyway since everyone is supposed to.
annw, November 15, 2023 11:30 AM NST
Took awhile, but the nc showed up, thanks tnt, what a nice surprise
dave - JN Staff, November 15, 2023 11:59 AM NST
The free NC grant will take a long time--possibly hours--to be granted. NC stuff just moves a lot slower, and now 10s of thousands of people are claiming it.
serpentshrine, November 15, 2023 12:00 PM NST
It's been awhile since I played neopets. We're able to collect NC on sides, yes?

More pet slots here I come!~
jweb, November 15, 2023 12:10 PM NST
inposible to clame
glopixi, November 15, 2023 12:26 PM NST
fun event, as always! Glad to hear the free NC will be delivered in time
fihyn, November 15, 2023 12:37 PM NST
Are we allowed to choose an account to claim the NC on? :0 or does it *have* to be the account that we consider our “main” account?
pasqui - JN Staff, November 15, 2023 12:51 PM NST
@serpentshrine @fithyn You can claim it on your main AND on your side accounts, yes!
chocolatjellopudding, November 15, 2023 1:01 PM NST
I love how they can't decide if its their 24th or 25th anniversary
rosi, November 15, 2023 2:00 PM NST
@jweb : The mall is currently undergoing maintenance ù___ù
smaragdeidechse, November 15, 2023 2:19 PM NST
@woodstocki Same here but this excerpt from the news page doesn't give me high hopes: "Secret hint: ALL viewers who join us live will receive an EXCLUSIVE anniversary code item!"

Really, REALLY not a fan of the ongoing trend of off-site events. If I wanted to visit Twitter or Twitch I'd do so. Same with IRL/time sensitive stuff. Like it used to be maybe SDCC where you'd miss some cool exclusive item that you couldn't get by playing online; now it feels like there's something happening every week where if you don't live in the US you're poop outta luck. :/ Maybe I'm just bitter idk
woodstocki, November 15, 2023 3:05 PM NST
@smaragdeidechse, I don't think they'll go through the trouble of sending every participant a personal code though, so I am hoping this will be a later redeemable thing.

There are multiple fandoms I have that have a tendency to look no further than Planet America for their fanbase, and while you sort of get used to that, it also gets old.

I am happy that I thought to do a quick check before bedtime and not miss out on the 750 NC which wasn't there earlier today yet, though
1jediboy, November 15, 2023 3:05 PM NST
Congratulations, Saige!
surferboard_girl, November 15, 2023 3:07 PM NST
Kind of in love with that Toy Poogle! What a fun birthday release.
topaz644, November 15, 2023 3:27 PM NST
Is the Mall being down why the notice on the homepage isn't showing up now? I figure they're linked so....
phantompearl, November 15, 2023 3:45 PM NST
The Toy Poogle looks great. I saw the artist's proposed design on the boards back in August and it was a good choice.
gabistar, November 15, 2023 4:00 PM NST
I liked the poogle toy, and after all, do you know how long the live will last? here it will be at 10pm and I can't sleep too late (my parents don't let me) but I want the item code
powerwingamber, November 15, 2023 4:37 PM NST
Happy birthday to Neopets! I can't believe how old it is! (Makes me feel old, too. LOL)

That Toy Poogle is soooo amazing!
fozfyre, November 15, 2023 5:04 PM NST
For some reason the streams do not load in Firefox. Like, when I try to load the stream (be it through twitter, facebook or youtube) it says that my browser cannot play it. Which, it's a video?????
It loads fine in Chrome but, not in Firefox for some reason which I feel should be noted here.
lilytora, November 15, 2023 5:24 PM NST
I didn't get the pop up for the neocash on my main but I got an alert about it, hopefully that means I still get it.
rosi, November 15, 2023 5:25 PM NST
I can't get the Mall to load
alex, November 15, 2023 5:56 PM NST
If that's the Toy Poogle, where's the Standard Poogle and the Miniature Poogle?
hugsandtugsbear2, November 15, 2023 6:09 PM NST
OMG! I had some of those toy dogs that danced to music, even had a dalmatian one!
caosmuerte, November 15, 2023 6:13 PM NST
kiriska, November 15, 2023 6:13 PM NST
lol, the prize is a book that can't be read.
faellie_ridiculous, November 15, 2023 6:14 PM NST
A book that is Rarity 500 (no trade) and cannot be read? Is that correct?
tomboy3603, November 15, 2023 6:15 PM NST
Idk where to post to where it would be seen, was Zac also on eggcave? I recognize that username haha.
purplebin, November 15, 2023 6:23 PM NST
I was okay with a book, until I realized it's actually a GIFT and can't be read!
paige7390, November 15, 2023 6:39 PM NST
do we know yet - are we allowed to collect the item on side accounts? they didn't specify in the AMA. it only said 'only one redemption per account' - so i assume... we would be able to......?
topaz644, November 15, 2023 6:46 PM NST
Book that's not a book- Dom said it was a throwback item- so like old clothes that couldn't be worn? Or when the best things were useless and stocked in the gift shop? lol jk

They will probably make it readable.
nightshadeswiftswing, November 15, 2023 6:49 PM NST
The book has one interaction. Feed to pet. (Do not recommend haha)
remy, November 15, 2023 6:53 PM NST
There really needs to be a "Keyquest" and "Habitarium" filter on those chat feeds... Jesus. They addressed why they can't do them in a previous AMA. And you've seen the roadmap... again.

Trying to read anything between the KQ spam is like trying to catch salmon from beneath a waterfall.
topaz644, November 15, 2023 6:53 PM NST
If the book becomes readable and stays no trade they should also make it non-consumable. That would be amazing!!
liontiger4states_06, November 15, 2023 6:58 PM NST
I get my prize tomorrow. I wait.
powerwingamber, November 15, 2023 7:20 PM NST
Well, this explains why the site won't load again. ^^;

Speaking of, has anyone managed to get their free NC yet? I know it said that it would 'take awhile to process', but does that mean 12 hours? 24 hours? Maybe longer?
purplebin, November 15, 2023 7:24 PM NST
My free NC took between 3 and 5 hours to arrive.
gabyblack, November 15, 2023 7:24 PM NST
One of my sides had the free NC almost immediately even though I only logged in for a minute to put those pets back into lodge. But my main where I've been restocking & playing games still doesn't, so it seems kind of random.
powerwingamber, November 15, 2023 7:27 PM NST
Ah, thank you! Guess there's nothing for me to do but keep waiting for now.
1jediboy, November 15, 2023 7:30 PM NST
@alex - *ba-dum-TSSS* 😂
alkhemystt, November 15, 2023 7:43 PM NST
There really needs to be a "Keyquest" and "Habitarium" filter on those chat feeds... Jesus. They addressed why they can't do them in a previous AMA. And you've seen the roadmap... again.
Hard disagree, I think we need to be reminding them when their priorities are in the wrong place. Given the demand for it, I'd be recreating both of them from scratch before even thinking of dedicating resources to reviving the mobile games no one cares about.
digresser, November 15, 2023 8:03 PM NST
I got the NC event, clicked the event and then the event deleted. I'm fine with waiting, but I didn't miss a step, did I? I just want to make sure there wasn't anything to open or whatnot.
snowbunny, November 15, 2023 8:19 PM NST
I clicked the alert for free NC, but I didn't get a popup and the alert didn't get deleted. But then I clicked the alert on the old site layout and it went away. I hope I get the free NC because nothing popped up for me.
contessa, November 15, 2023 8:30 PM NST
Drat! It looks like a book, but when I went to go read it to Pretty Blue, turns out is a Gift.

More junk.

I still have not been able to get he item from the NC Mall yet either and no extra NC either. I got a popup on one of my sides when I went to feed my pets but no extra NC showed up.

TNT: stop just releasing new stuff and FIX THE SITE!! Today has been all Bad Gateway pages at every turn and the Lag is HUGE
berriganify, November 15, 2023 9:06 PM NST
Does anyone know if you can use the discount code on side accounts?
dave - JN Staff, November 15, 2023 9:59 PM NST
@paige7390: Since this isn't a Neocash code, traditionally you are not allowed to redeem it on sides. It's no trade, which makes it a little odd, but I wouldn't risk it by redeeming. Just stick to claiming free NC stuff on sides.
alierah, November 15, 2023 10:44 PM NST
I'm so happy to see the Poogle design was accepted for the Toy Poogle. It looks awesome ^_^
apophis324, November 16, 2023 12:12 AM NST
Sooo.. Is this the 24th or the 25th anniversary? Is it a "we are turning 25 but are celebrating our birthday for the 24th time" kind of situation?
shadowfrost, November 16, 2023 1:42 AM NST
how long does it take to get the nc? i got the notification like three hours ago, but it's still not there
fen, November 16, 2023 2:08 AM NST
Alice's last name starting with W is perfect, cause she's a certified win for the company with how helpful she is.
stormmonarch, November 16, 2023 4:01 AM NST
It's the 24th anniversary but Neopets is now 25 years old. Both are correct. For example, if you have 1st wedding anniversary, it means you are already in the second year of your marriage.
gabistar, November 16, 2023 4:02 AM NST
I don't care that the code item doesn't have interaction, in real life it's like that too, what we receive isn't always useful 😂, and when we read the book for the pet it disappears, and I don't think it's cool to receive a rare thing to disappear with her 😅
vellen_, November 16, 2023 4:15 AM NST
I feel bad for those people who are out of our time zone that stayed up for the code only to find it available for 72 hours and the item unusable (at least for now).
I suggest Dom prerecord his next speech and submit a transcript for those of us who are hard of hearing or deaf. As I understand it, the interview was less than smooth.
vellen_, November 16, 2023 4:19 AM NST
Lastly, why doesn't Dom or TNT acknowledge DTI (Openneo) Matchu's site has generated so much money for Neopets
I wouldn't have spend a quarter of what I have without DTI, not even close. As I understand it, no one has contacted him. That's crazy. Work with him people!!
neolikepets, November 16, 2023 4:20 AM NST
@stormmonarch: That’s not how birthdays work. You turn 24 on your 24th birthday, so Neopets is 24. What you’re saying would be like if babies were considered 1 year old when they’re born. We’ll be going into year 25 as of January though, which is part of it, but most of this is “Counting down the 1 year until we’re the big 25”
neolikepets, November 16, 2023 4:23 AM NST
*we are in, not going into. These posts really could use edit functions lol
stormmonarch, November 16, 2023 4:33 AM NST
@neolikepets: No, the norm works differently for human birthday though. For companies, anniversaries and so on, they don't count like human birthday. For example, when a company has their first anniversary, they consider themselves as being in the second year of operation. If a couple is having their first wedding anniversary, they are in their second year of marriage. Neopets is having its 24th anniversary, and that means it is already in its 25th year of operation. That's why both the code and the item refer to 25 instead of 24.
neolikepets, November 16, 2023 5:01 AM NST
The code and the item are in anticipation of next year's birthday. From the new features: "Happy Birthday Neopians! We're 24 years old today!" The goodie bag and NC Mall goodie bag are also for the 24th birthday.

The original question that was asked was if this is the 24th or the 25th birthday/anniversary, and it's the 24th.
stormmonarch, November 16, 2023 5:18 AM NST
Nah, it's 24th birthday, and that means Neopets is in its 25th year of operation. It's the same every year. Last year was 23rd birthday and the code has number 24.
galifan, November 16, 2023 6:24 AM NST
@vellen_ -- you are absolutely right, TNT needs to work with DTI! It's an incredible resource! I like the static item previews JN has added to their wardrobe, but DTI lets you see an ensemble so you can see if things work together. Yes, I also wouldn't waste nearly as much RW to buy NC -- or maybe I'd waste more because I'd buy things that can't work together.
missdood, November 16, 2023 6:49 AM NST
Me too! Mine was white just like the toy poogle and I even bought a little sweater outfit for it! In fact, it may even be in a closet somewhere....
So now I guess I will have to go back to doing the daily quests again so I can maybe snag a toy paintbrush for my poogle.
ohdatguy, November 16, 2023 6:53 AM NST
I had the option of my Yinsent the Mara Grarrl eating 25 Recipes for 25 Years, but obviously didn’t try to feed it to him.
premium17, November 16, 2023 7:26 AM NST
Great interview and was good that Dom mentioned the LAG and steps are being taken to improve it.
super_neopets, November 16, 2023 8:17 AM NST
Is it normal for the NC to still not show up even after 8h, got the popup around 1140PM last night
topaz644, November 16, 2023 12:34 PM NST
I enjoyed hearing (and seeing mac OS ten! ) Learned a few things about Jellyneo! JN has more ppl than neopets. It shows.

Too bad about the only BD talk being about new weapon releases. Don't think we needed an ama for that. They love love love to make weapons, but no fixes to the Dome itself.

Did I hear Dom say Zac and he should 'communicate' directly when Dom heard what Zac does for a living? Zac did say 'you got my addy'. (paraphrasing)
galifan, November 16, 2023 12:56 PM NST
I kinda wish they'd give some love to the Lost and Pound. Another great resource!

And my brother beat me to the Rhinestone Cowdog. Sigh.
mavegibson, November 16, 2023 1:22 PM NST
@galifan Yeah, if you can get DTI to load it can be useful, but it's almost always down.

JN has a huge role to play in the community beyond clothing and dressing up (although they definitely provide those tools as well). There are so many resources. When the TNT team is frequently using JN as a resource, you know the JN team is doing something right.

starstop, November 16, 2023 3:59 PM NST
This is most likely a really stupid question, but where do you enter the discount code for buying NC? I cant seem to find a place to add the code
topaz644, November 16, 2023 4:10 PM NST
@starstop Do you mean the code that is in the free NC Goodie Bag? That code is not for buying nc, but spending it.

Spend over 1000nc and get 150 off.
starstop, November 16, 2023 4:21 PM NST
@topaz644 wow I am dumb sorry about that thank you for answering me.
paige7390, November 16, 2023 5:00 PM NST
@JN dave, thank you for the response! only redeeming on my main account just to be safe.
hopsulla, November 21, 2023 4:35 AM NST
The toy poogle is amazing. I love it!!
pupybref, November 21, 2023 10:53 AM NST
what are the rules for having the neocash on your side accounts? can you use it to buy stuff on your side? are you allowed to send bought nc items to your main or do they have to stay on your side account?
pupybref, November 21, 2023 10:57 AM NST
** the free 750 neocash specifically
