Do you love pets but canít have them because of allergies? Well, it doesnít matter now, because you can get a loving online virtual pet for free! A virtual pet is an answer to all your dreams. Have all the fun of an actual pet with none of the nuisance. Sometimes I even think a virtual pet is better than a real one! Itís a lot of fun and pleasure for all ages.
Raise and breed a virtual pet for free on Neopets.com. This site offers a variety of Neopets to choose from and all Neopets are made up animals. Some of the Neopets look like a dog, tiger, and cow. Once you create a Neopet, you can pick a color and name for your Neopet. Now you are ready to enjoy all the features of the site.
Earn Neopoints by playing games, investing in the stock market, and winning contests. Spend them in shops to buy clothes, toys, furniture, presents and food for your Neopet. You can also be very generous and donate some of your Neopoints to the Money Tree, where people who donít have as much Neopoints can take it. Isnít it cool! You are able to raise a virtual pet without spending any money from your pocket. Neopets.com is very easy to navigate, is kid friendly and an imaginative web site. My daughter just loves this site. I think it also teaches children how to take care of pets.
All Neopets are so cute. You can own up to four Neopets and play hundreds of cool games. The Neomail is just like regular email. When you play games, you play against another Neopet and if you like that Neopet you can add him or her to your Neofriendsí list. Explore the Neo world by visiting the Map of Neopia. You will be surprised at how much more fun you can have with a virtual pet.
They keep on adding new games and thatís another plus. Neopets require regular feeding. The Neopet will complain about starving if you miss a few days of play. Neopets premium, offers extra features and benefits for a monthly fee of $7.99. The only drawback I see that itís so addictive. Parents should set a time limit for children to play with their Neopets. Create your very own virtual pet whenever you feel bored. I know you will have a wonderful time!
