Petpet park, like Habitarium, is an exciting new world to explore within Neopets. The Petpets within the park are not found on the regular site. There is so much to do there that new players may feel a bit lost. Petpet Park has its own lands, quests, collections, daily freebies, and games to play inside the park. Learning the basics of Petpet Park can be easy if you take it step by step.
Neopets Petpet Park: Create a Petpet
The six species of Petpets in Petpet Park are Pinixy, Dipni, Hifflo, Oukin, Drym, and Kassegat. At this time there are no quests based on species so just pick the one you like the most. You can choose between four basic colors and male or female. All of this is just for your personal preference and will not effect Petpet Park game play. Choosing a name can be difficult if you want something without numbers or punctuation. Try going for unusual names that most people won’t think to name there pet. I was able to find Sorrowfully available without too much trouble.

You will be able to choose a themed freebie pack. The items inside match the theme of the box. It is just some nice starter items to outfit your Petpet, 150 Park Points (the in game currency also known as PP), and a NC goodie bag to receive freebies at the in game Petpet Park NC mall.

Neopets Petpet Park: Basic Navigating
After choosing a server you will be transported to Petpet Park. You begin in Park Point Square which is a beginner area. You use your mouse to click the ground where you would like your Petpet to move in Petpet Park. There are Non-player characters( NPCs) and real life players like yourself. NPCs are always in the same spots for you to find easily. They will have yellow exclamation point over their heads if there is a quest you can do for them.
At the top of your screen is a bar that has useful information available. You can easily see how much Neocash and Park points you possess. The hanger icon takes you to your closet where you can dress your Petpet in various clothing options.
The bar at the bottom of the screen has the Petpet News which tells you new additions to the park and any world events. There is a map icon which works as a teleporter to transport you to the twenty-six different lands in Petpet Park by simply clicking where you want to go. You can also keep track of any pals you have made. Make friends by clicking another player and sending a pal invite. The tricks option is movements your Petpet can learn from quests. They start with a few basic movements to show off that are just for fun. Toward the right of the bar is badges and collections which is one of the best most addicting features of Petpet Park. It is a user lookup of your Petpet showing what they have accomplished. Your user lookup keeps track of current and completed quests, Badges obtained, and collections. The bag icon is your backpack which holds current inventory of items. The last icon takes you to the Petpet NC mall where you can spend any Neocash you have on amazing items.
Neopets Petpet Park: Harvesting freebie items
You can collect free items from trees and bushes in Petpet Park by having your Petpet stand next to them and clicking the tree with your left mouse button. This will cause your Petpet to shake the bush or tree and retrieve any fallen object. Certain dark spots in the water can hold junk you can salvage by clicking the spot. You can harvest mushrooms, snowflakes, popcorn, flowers, fruit, berries, shells, salvage, noodles, chokato foods, cherry apple foods and pumpkins within Petpet Park. The item you receive is relating to the harvest spot.
To harvest fish from water sources you will need to buy a fishing pole from Petpet Emporium and stand next to the shadow of the fish underwater. Click the shadow while your Petpet is equipped (the hanger icon is the changing room) with the pole and he will grab a fish.
If you would like to mine for gems buy a mining pick from Petpet Emporium and stand next to stalagmites in underground tunnels and click the rock. You can mine a whole variety of gemstones for quests and collections.
Certain harvest areas are only available during certain holidays. It pays to play Petpet Park on Easter, for example, you get rare eggs!
Blizzard Mountain has a Cocoa Cafe were you can collect a free cup of cocoa each day!
If you have too many items in your backpack you can deposit them in your vault which is located in Park Point Square.
Neopets Petpet Park: Lands
Each land has its own shops, games, and NPCs to give you quests. Completing quests gives you park points as well as playing games. Park points can be used to buy items in the various Petpet Park shops. You can make fifteen thousand PP a day maximum from the games. Completing quests often score you some nice items like clothing in addition to Park Points.
Sometimes as the Petpet Park world develops lands that were previously available become closed. A prime example is when aliens were first discovered in Petpet Park you had an Area 51 you could go and visit. Now that Lutaria is open that area can no longer be accessed by anyone.
Neopets Petpet Park: Collections
This is my favorite park of Petpet Park. Some collections become retired so its best to finish new collections as quickly as possible. The Halloween collection is a prime example of this. Collections can be completed by harvesting items, finding treasure, crafting items, or buying a certain type of item from shops such as “mask.” Having a retired collection on your Petpet lookup is a way to show you are dedicated in developing your Petpet in Petpet Park.
Neopets Petpet Park: Quests
Every land in Petpet Park has a few quests you can receive from clicking on a NPC that has an exclamation point over their head. Sometimes one quest can lead to many others and make the rewards far greater then you expect. If you forget what you are supposed to do you can click on “current quests” on your Petpet lookup for reminders. It can get hectic when you start picking up multiple quests. It can also be time saving when you have two or three quests in the same land you can complete them in a quick fashion.
Neopets Petpet Park: Badges
The park citizen badges can be completed from following an entire Petpet Park quest line from start to finish. The collector badges are great for those who love to harvest mass quantities of items from trees, bushes, flowers, mining and fishing. The gamer badges are for doing certain tasks with the Petpet Park games. The crafter badges are for crafting certain rare items. The special badges are often for a limited time so you have to finish before an event in Petpet Park ends.
Neopets Petpet Park: Crafting Tree
Once you learn some crafting recipes you can take items to the Crafting Tree and he will create a new item from your unwanted pieces. Creating items will sometimes complete Petpet Park quests and collections so it is a good thing to experiment with different crafting items. The talking flower that stands next to the Tree sometimes has recipes for you to learn as well as other NPCs.
Neopets Petpet Park: Neocash
You can play Petpet Park without using NC. Neocash simply opens up more quests, crafts, harvest items, collections, clothing and paint options for your pet. If you tried to do every NC quest and collection you would probably be poor in real life. There are far to many options so it is best to pick and choose the best ones for you. I spent NC on getting the jewelled fishing rod, jewelled pirate hook, and jewel mining pick to be able to receive different types of harvest items.
Neopets Petpet Park is a huge game with an amazing array of things to do. It is good to check the news once in a while to see what has been added to make it more enjoyable.
