ICYMI, Neopets is back! If you’ve neglected your virtual pets since the early aughts, now is the time to go check in, as the Neopets brand has returned with new apparel, jewelry, and more featuring your Neopets faves over the past two years. 

Now, JumpStart — owner of the Neopets website  — has inked a licensing deal with sports and entertainment collectibles company Upper Deck to release a new line of Neopets collectible trading cards. (Yep, you read that right.)

Arriving nearly a decade after the first Neopets Trading Card game, this new trading card collection will feature fan-favorite characters, unlockable paintbrush achievements, and more. The cards are designed to appeal to both long-time Neopets lovers and newer generations who are just discovering the brand.
