NeoPens are digital pens that were available only in Toys R Us' in Australia and New Zealand. They were produced by Tiger Electronics and Hasbro and released March 29, 2004.


Variaties and Appearance

The Neopets are character toppers to the pens and are removable.


It served as a game as well as a functional pen. Ink cartridges could be changed. Above the nib the pen would twist to select options or control direction. Right above it is a cancel button. The top of the characters pressed down as a confirmation button. When creating your Neopet you could set their name along with their gender, a hobby, and greeting. The pen track the time and date.


  • Neopet Face - This shows your pet's profile (including name, age, gender, likes, greeting, strength, defense, movement, height, and weight).
  • Book - Allows you to check your Neopet's health, happiness, and intelligence stats.
  • Trophies - Shows which trophies you have and your highest scores on games. A trophy is earned by completing the highest level of a game.
  • Food - Neopets like to eat food purchased from the food store 3 times a day, from 7-9 AM, 11 AM-1 PM, and 5-7 PM. Feeding on time will result in 50 HP if fed healthy food or 50 Happiness if fed sweets. Feeding your neopet outside of these times will result in only gaining half the points. Feeding extra teats will add 10 Hapiness, but cause them to lose 30 HP due to gaining weight. Not feeding neopets results in losing 40 HP and 40 Happiness, as well as weight loss.
  • Burlap Sack - This is the game's inventory. It holds a maximum of ten items.
  • Shopping - Use neopoints to buy items from the Food shop, Toy shop, or Petpet shop
  • Hospital - Use neopoints to buy medicine to treat a sick pet. If left untreated, neopoints will be lost every day your pet remains sick.
  • Games - The NeoPen features 6 games.
  • Bank
  • Sleep - Neopets sleep from around 9 PM to 7 AM. Going to sleep late will resault in a loss of Happiness points and waking up early will result in a loss of Happiness and Intelligence points.
