April Fools Jokes

Why this page?
Every year on April 1st The Neopets Team tries to pull everyone's leg by changing something to the site that is rather radical. For example in 2006 they told everyone they would have to start paying taxes for every page load. We decided to start making a log of TNT's April fools jokes, starting April 1st, 2007. From the years before 2007 we've tried to gather some information to give you insights in the older jokes.

With the navigation below you can go through the April Fools of previous years.

NC Mall joke
Like the previous years, the NC Mall came with it's own prank mystery capsule. This year, it was the TNT Mystery Capsule

TNT used this chance to make a Mystery Capsule dedicated to how awesome they are. Or, like they put it themselves in the capsule's description: TNT is dynamite!

Premium Joke
All premium members also got tricked by this neomail:


You may be thinking this Neomail has come early, and you'd be totally right. See, all of our programmers will be out of the office during the regularly scheduled Premium Collectible delivery time so we have to send it out now instead. Because of the change, we made sure this month's collectible was super awesome. So awesome you'll weep tears of joy. So awesome you'll have to explain to everyone around you that the sound you're making is called a "squee". So awesome your hair will spontaneously catch on fire, but like in a good way you know?

Anyway, please check your inventory for your collectible. We think your non-Premium Neofriends will be totally jealous. Enjoy!

- The Neopets Team

They then received a Premium Collectible: Ultimate Cloud Bow, which is supposed to be the Premium collectable for April. But you be the judge, is it really that awesome your hair will spontaneously catch fire?

Facebook joke
On Neopets Facebook the following was posted. Which is a joke as well.

We have been getting so many questions lately about what the Tiki Tack Man's face looked like underneath his mask. So finally, we decided to talk our artists into updating the Tiki Tack Man's look. Once we get enough Likes, we will be revealing his face here on Facebook before we add it permanently to the site!

Later the joke was revealed:

The mask is off, and the Tiki Tack Man's face has finally been revealed! What do you think?
