Happy December! A new month means another chance to collect some freebie foods and Neopoints!


Winter Starlight Celebration
December 1st means the start of the Winter Starlight Celebration, and more importantly, daily prizes at the Advent Calendar! Be sure to go pick up your free goodies.

The pool of random prizes you'll receive when catching Reina popping into the page this year includes... Seasonal Attack Pea! And the Pant Devil isn't here to steal them!

Based on the amount donated, you'll also receive an exclusive 2023 Donation Trophy—only available for the remainder of this month!

Thanks to generous support, JN has reached our goal for 2023! Additional donations are still appreciated, and will earn you this year's trophy.



Contribute to Jellyneo
Not in a position to donate, but want to help out by contributing some of your time? We're always looking for help on different projects! Check out the Contribute to Jellyneo page (also linked on the sidebar) to see what we currently need help with at the moment.

Feature Friday: Advent Calendar Animations
  • Posted by Kenny
  • Posted on December 1, 2023, 1:44 pm NST

This weekend, we're shining the spotlight on a seasonally apropos feature: our archive of Advent Calendar Animations!


Starting in the year 2000, one of the most beloved Neopian traditions has been the Advent Calendar. Each day throughout December, Neopians are treated to a themed animation and some prizes to go alongside of it. Animations typically featured events or characters from the past year, along with completely random vignettes.

From 2000 through 2016, these animations were created using Flash, which (in)famously retired in early 2021. Jellyneo has converted and archived all of the Flash-based animations in a modern movie format so that you may continue to enjoy them each holiday season:


Do you have a favorite animation from years past? Let us know in the comments! Here's one of mine, from December 18, 2011:


Some other staff favourites include December 11, 2012 (featuring an ice skating Aisha on Kiko Lake); December 12, 2004 (featuring some dancing Wockies); and December 12, 2011 (featuring a festive wipeout by Matt, from Sewage Surfer).



And don't forget to start claiming your daily Advent Prize today! Bonus: make sure to click on Reina the Christmas Aisha when she pops out from the side of the screen to get a bonus item—possibly even a Seasonal Attack Pea!

Rubbish Dump Day, Saturday, December 2nd!
  • Posted by Dave
  • Posted on December 2, 2023, 12:00 am NST


Welcome to the 1st Saturday of the month: Rubbish Dump Day!

In April 2022, TNT updated the Rubbish Dump to increase the drop rate of "rubbish" eligible for the avatar. (And we've even seen some Hidden Tower items pop up that weren't previously confirmed as prizes!)

The Rubbish Dump is special in that items dropped there appear after a Neopian refreshes the dump. (In other words, refreshing the page gives you the chance to "donate" some rubbish to the queue.) The more people visiting and refreshing, the more rubbish dropped, and the more opportunities there are for avatar items to appear!

Starting now, and continuing all day, here's how you can gather and participate:

If you DON'T have the avatar...
  • Visit the Rubbish Dump in Meridell and refresh to generate rubbish!
  • Claim up to 8 pieces of rubbish to clear the way for more items to appear. (And make sure not to claim anything from the Money Tree or Second-Hand Shoppe... it's 10 items max from all 3 locations combined!)
  • To be safe from accidental clicks, save your last 2 rubbish claims for when an avatar item pops up. (You can claim up to 10 items from the Rubbish Dump per day.)
  • Review our guide to familiarize yourself with which items are eligible for the avatar.

If you DO have the avatar...
  • Visit the Rubbish Dump in Meridell and refresh to help generate rubbish! Even if you have the avatar, refreshing helps generate more "donations" that will show up later. (And that means more opportunities for avatar items to pop up!)
  • Claim up to 10 pieces of rubbish to help clear the way for avatar-eligible items to appear.
  • Be kind and leave the cheaper avatar-eligible items (like the Fading Bottled Faeries) for those who need the avatar! We won't mind, however, if you try sniping a Dung Catapult.

The more the merrier, so share this post with your Neofriends and guildmates!

As you participate, let us know in the comments what junk—or treasures—you've seen or picked up! And let us know if you get the avatar so we can celebrate with you.


Can't get enough rubbish? Mark your calendars and join us on the first Saturday of next month—January 6th—for our next Rubbish Dump Day!
