I maintain a Neopets account. Although I am not so actively working the account, I maintain it for my grandson. He enjoys playing the games. The games are fun, I will tell you that. I love playing Web of Vernax. I have gotten quite good at it. There are so many games to play. Kids of all ages enjoy it.

Oooohh! I love Neopets too! I'm 23 and been playing for about 6 years now. I also think the games are really fun. That is the main reason why I play. I also love Web of Varnax. Some other of my favorites are Faerie Bubbles, Hasee Bounce, Freaky Factory and Destruct-O-Match. I do play lots of other ones, though. I recently got my boyfriend addicted to it, too, and now he loves to play the games and we see who can get a higher score.

Yeah, I started out playing pyramids, too. And solitaire. But, eventually I got into the other ones.

wow, I have not heard of these guys for a while. Both of my kids used to be into these when Pokemon was really hot. But have gotten out of both sence then. That is cool that they are still around. I didn't realize they were!!!

Yeah, they are still around. lol. I think they will be for a while, too. Kids and adults still seem to love them. I think they tried selling stuff in store and I think it didn't go so well, though. Last time I seen any of their products, they were in the clearance section. :) And I haven't seen any since. Oh well, they are better just staying online, I think.

Heard of it and i tried the game. It's nothing special, and i don't really like it so i don't think its for kids although they do allow adults to play. Kids all enjoy this game because they love virtual pets. It's obvious! Tamagotchi is back... And so is a new product 'furrealpets' That also makes tamagotchi. It's really surprising :) Anyways alot of kids like it but on my side it's totally different i don't like it and so do alot of other people hehe. Whenever i go to the library kids use the computers to play neopets. This makes me mad because alot of people want to use the computers to do some research but can't because of that...

I no longer play neopets actively either. I played on that site for a good two years solid before I retired. Once in a while I will go on and trade things at the trading post but that is about it.

I've been there for five years now. My pets are all currently in the Neolodge because it's getting into convention season and I don't have the time for it right now, but I love Neopets. And I've worked hard to get the pets I have on there - an Island Ixi, a Darigan Hissi, a blue Koi and brown Lupe.

Oh, I'm so glad that you reminded me about Neopets! I was a really active player there a few years ago. I got really addicted to looking through the auctions and selling things on them for awhile there. I also loved the games. But the Web of Vernax must be pretty new. I haven't heard of it *laugh* But then, I haven't really been on the site in ages. You can check out my pets under my username of shywolf. I use that name pretty much everywhere on the web *laugh* Most of my pets are painted, and they all have petpets! I *love* Neopets! I really should spend more time there, but hey, I'm too busy having fun posting here at Mylot now! ^_^ If we could get paid for playing Neopets though, man.. I would be back there in a second! ^_^

I had a neopets account way back when. When I was 15, I think. Or 16. I can't remember. Anyway, I used to love it. I loved some of those games they had on there as well =)

Neopets is a great site. It can be used as a teaching tool for real world things like managing a budget. Checking your account balance and collecting interest at the bank is a great way to teach kids about responsibility. Hey, I'm an adult and love the site!

i am glad to see i'm not the only one playing neopets and to finally meet people who joined them. when i started it, i had alot of free time on my hands and i used to play alot of games and took really good care of my neopets. i also got my boyfriend to play which is a miracle i think, but he is really found of his Acara and each day if he has a little time he feeds her and plays a little with her. it's a very cute site and i totally love it

I have two neopets accounts, one main and one side account. I try to get there everyday but it doesn't always happen. I have over 5.5 million neopoints in the bank. Before myLot, I was playing games all the time. My favorites are pyramids,destructomatch and snow muncher. I am brendalee6485 over there if you ever want to check out my store or house. I have 41 rooms in my house but my store isn't as stocked as it once was. Also, this is the site I try to use daily...... http://petpages.neopets.com/~Neo____Zafara
