Man I've been saving neopoints too and now I gotta get one of these 😭
by zaitoutau on October 13, 2021 1:38 PM NST
ok, this is cute :')
though i think it's kinda weird that the claws and..tail tuft especially? are still just yellow? seems like they should be the same blue as the inner ears

okay ONE good thing to come out of current neo

d'awww, I'm so glad this was the idea they went with. It's so adorable!

As a reminder if you're feeling down about the lack of any real movement from JS on NFTs - remember that Armin was a little Bori that no one really cared about and he managed to take down the Bringer of Night

Toy is starting to become my favorite Neopian color!

This is so smart and adorable!!! I love it when there is actual thought put into these designs, because this is just on point!
by targoefista on October 13, 2021 2:41 PM NST
I love this design, it's so cute

I am mad about everything else, but this Toy Bori is pretty adorable.

Woah, that's a nice design for my favorite species. I take it the bone mallet in its mouth is a wearable. And as I suspected, an Armin clothing set, mostly because he's the most notable Bori that comes to mind.
And also, nice comment from Herdy. Get in loser, we're gonna embarrass some techbros.

Noooo i can’t love another pet i have no room lol this is too cute!
by tpandai on October 13, 2021 3:27 PM NST
Oh its so cute!
by dolchay on October 13, 2021 3:42 PM NST
It looks like the bone mallet is not a separate piece, it's always there in the mouth.
by purplebin on October 13, 2021 3:57 PM NST
Well that's just the cutest thing ever <3

I have two Boris already and it looks like I'm going to have to get a 3rd
by alex on October 13, 2021 4:01 PM NST
We've confirmed that the mallet is not a separate piece of PB clothing. It is in fact part of the Bori's mouth!
by dave on October 13, 2021 4:08 PM NST JN Staff
Can anyone confirm if the Armin outfit is wearable by Baby Bori? Generally pet day clothings aren't compatible with Baby/Mara/Mutant but Armin is literally a Baby Bori, they can't be doing him like that
by mortychichi on October 13, 2021 4:20 PM NST
A toy I'd like to play with, but not if they're still doing that NFT stuff. Aww.
by galifan on October 13, 2021 4:34 PM NST
Awwwww... That toy bori is so cute it almost makes me want to forget everything else that has been going on. Almost.
by thecrazyoo on October 13, 2021 4:37 PM NST
nevermind I take it back, the fan artist was uncredited
by thepapercutjellyfish on October 13, 2021 5:03 PM NST
Nah, this is a completely different design to that artist.
by herdy on October 13, 2021 5:29 PM NST JN Staff
@herdy yeah I now see it is based off the Fisher Price Puppy Xylophone, but it's still very similar to the fan version for sure, I feel bad for both artists.
by thepapercutjellyfish on October 13, 2021 6:29 PM NST
this is truly ADORABLE and like...clearly now I need a Bori?!
by surferboard_girl on October 13, 2021 6:45 PM NST
Oh my goodness it's so cute????? I should get a Bori on one of my sides because I love them and this color is a perfect incentive!
by maggma99 on October 13, 2021 6:45 PM NST
My ear hurts
by roshchodesh on October 13, 2021 7:10 PM NST
Huh, interesting about the bone being permanent. Wonder if that'll conflict with any wearables.
by gordy_777 on October 13, 2021 8:57 PM NST
I played around with a bunch of different face/mouth wearables. Pleasantly surprised by how well the bone plays with them. It actually looks a-okay with all the lipsticks and facial hairs I tried. Only looked weird with "full-face" mask-style wearables.
by howdareyoufreezeme1 on October 13, 2021 9:14 PM NST JN Staff
@mortychichi He seems more like a very small Yellow Bori to me, but I could be wrong
by clock_flower on October 13, 2021 11:33 PM NST
Oh my god the Armin outfite, I need it!
by zeelink on October 14, 2021 12:48 AM NST
This is so adorable!!
by contessa on October 14, 2021 7:21 AM NST
(I do have to say though, as cute as this is, I am rather disappointed we didn’t get anything for Eyrie day, since that is one of my top two pets this Bori’s cute as all get out but I was really looking forward to something for Eyriea)
by surferboard_girl on October 14, 2021 8:29 AM NST
I just heard that the Toy Bori design was STOLEN. In other words, they didn't credit the Neopian who drew the concept. WTF? -_-
by jessalynn on October 14, 2021 9:01 AM NST
"We've confirmed that the mallet is not a separate piece of PB clothing. It is in fact part of the Bori's mouth!"
Gross. I really liked the Toy Bori until I read this. Thanks for confirming!
I do really like they've been releasing a lot of character clothing lately!
by biediep on October 14, 2021 9:08 AM NST
That Toy Bori is beyond cute.
by claytonskitten on October 14, 2021 9:55 AM NST
AAAAAH ITS SO CUTE
by 1mimi290 on October 14, 2021 10:08 AM NST
I love Armin! And finally a creative use of the toy color LOL
by serpentshrine on October 14, 2021 10:44 AM NST
The Toy Bori design is very clearly based on a famous Fisher-Price toy, and that idea was recently suggested by at least two users on the Monthly Request Board. While those users may have seen the fanart in question during the years it's been around, it in turn looks quite a bit different from this Bori (other than the Xylophone aspect). We know TNT has been good about reaching to fan artists they directly get inspiration from (as recently as the upcoming Korbat Day), so it'd be odd that they would not do that this time.
Most of the issues going on with Neopets do not seem to be the fault of TNT, but the higher ups; while imperfect, many members of the current TNT have been longtime players and do seem to care about the site and the user experience. I don't think this is a case of stolen fanart.
by suzuka on October 14, 2021 11:27 AM NST JN Staff
so it seems like my theory is correct, as jumpstart and other high head honchos won't let TNT drop this partnership like a plate of hot wax
by themeepit32 on October 14, 2021 11:29 AM NST
While I hate the fact people have not been credited....this Bori is EXQUISITE! Never was a Bori fan til now :heart:
by chocolatjellopudding on October 14, 2021 2:06 PM NST
@surferboard_girl: We did get stuff for Eyrie Day! It was just buried under all the NFT news. But we got a lovely Water release and a Talinia outfit.
by i_love_latin on October 14, 2021 3:19 PM NST JN Staff
@i_love_latin: oh wonderful! Thanks for letting me know. I thought I'd scrolled far enough and apparently I had absolutely not.
by surferboard_girl on October 14, 2021 4:25 PM NST
i hate the fact that ppl jump on bandwagons to dogpile tnt on subjects before they actually do their due research first. they read a headline and just immediately assume it's true.
