We have -- count 'em -- five new User-requested Hidden Avatars today!

First up is the Peace and Love to You All Hidden Avatar to give you the warm-fuzzies, funded by @Kirsty.

Peace and Love to You All

We also have a set of squishy fluffy Plushie-related Hidden Avatars funded by @IcePrincess. In order, you can see Plush-O-Matic, Plushie Fan, Plushie Connoisseur, and Twinsies!

Plush-O-MaticPlushie Fan

Plushie ConnoisseurTwinsies

Good luck puzzling these all out. That ought to keep you busy for a while! In the meantime, you can add one more thing to your Plushie hoard -- the Plushie Ducky funded by @Silvy! Don't let it fool you, because it's actually a Toy, not a Plushie, so it will be stocking in the Toy Store and requested by the Space Quest one week from now! You can also find it as a reward from the Book Quest.

Plushie Ducky

User-funded Hidden Avatar requests are temporarily closed, but you can still fund Items and Pet Colours! Check out the Support Site to see the options.

Item Requester Trophy

In other news, we have posted a new poll in the voting booth regarding changing the name of Firebreathing -- we would love to have your vote!

Oh, and it looks like some more crystals have showed up somewhere... never mind those, it's probably not important.

Turquoise Wulfer

There's been a little ripple in the time continuum, and while nothing major has happened, it seems anything that used to be named Bluegreen is now Turquoise. Pets, Morphing Potions, Plushies, you name it.

Turquoise Cobron PlushieTurquoise Dabu PlushieTurquoise Trido PlushieTurquoise Zabeu Plushie

A few of the Turquoise Items have been shined up, as well. You may notice a slight colour change to the Turquoise Cobron, Dabu, Trido, and Zabeu Plushies as well as the Turquoise Trido Morphing Potion. Don't worry, the rift has stabilised, and everything should be settling now. But you never know...

All participants will receive a full set of the 2019 Pinatas shortly. All participants have also been listed on the Colouring Contest information page. Thank you to everyone who submitted artwork -- we love seeing so much creativity! We hope 2019 continues with as much colour and vivacity in all areas of everyone's lives.

Additionally, we have not forgotten about you, winners of December's Poetry Contest -- your book will be released and issued out to you soon!

This time of year, it's hard to come by fresh fruits and vegetables. Fortunately, the Food Mall has received a shipment from the lush mid-continental farms and jungles south of Draga!

Eat healthy this winter with the new Peach, Pear, Pomegranate, Tomato, Iceberg Lettuce, and Yellow Onion, all stocking in the Food Mall. These will be awarded by the Candy Quest, and starting one week from now will be requested by the Space Quest!

Oddly, a few crystals seem to have started growing on the Arcade Games page. Don't mind that. If you can't see them, however, you might want to try pressing Ctrl-F5.

60s Novyn Pinata 2019

Don't forget! Today is the last day you can play Pinata Mania, find Pinatas in Quests and Stores, and vote for your favourite in the Colouring Contest. All of these activities will end at 23:59:59 IcePets Time tonight!

Tech Cobron

There seems to be something glowing off in the distance. It doesn't look like party festivities... Oh! It looks like the Tech Cobron has arrived to Terrafrost, funded by @POURRITURE!

Tech Cobron Morphing Potion

You can get your very own sleek friend by using a Tech Cobron Morphing Potion, now available over in the Snow Jar Igloo. If you don't want to wait to restock one, you can purchase the Morphing Potion from the I.C.E Shop until the end of the month for 500 IceCash (450 IceCash for Gold Account Users)!

New Years Divider

Have you been enjoying the New Years events? This Cobron sure has been! So much so, they have tweaked the end time for all Pinata-related festivities, causing them to be extended for 24 hours. Pinata Mania will now run until January 18 at 23:59:59 IcePets Time and all restockable New Years Items, including Pinatas, will remain in shops until that time as well.

Colouring Contest Voting has not been extended, however, and will end at the same time on the 18th.

The Colouring Contest has ended, and our incredibly artistic IcePets Community has submitted some fantastic entries!

Party Dovu

The Party Pets have been enjoying the pinata festivities, and for them it's been like one big party. Several Pets stayed up late last night giving each other makeovers. They had so much fun, they decided to keep the new look, particularly the star of the evening, the Party Dovu.

Party Dovu Morphing Potion

Their friends the Party Makoat and Party Jakrit have also donned a slight adjustment to their facial features, though not a full revamp.

In the spirit of cycles and rebirth, it's out with the old and in with the new. Say goodbye to last week's Pinata Mania consolation prizes, and from here on out you can pick up a brand new set of Items.

Don't forget, you can use a UHD from the I.C.E Shop on any feature, and it will also reduce the cooldown between pinata clicks. Happy smashing!

Ori SoapBaby Lugra Plushie

We also have two User requests today. The fragrant Ori Soap now available from the Grooming Parlour was requested by @Megrim, and the little sea cucumber that is the Baby Lugra Plushie can be found in Plushie Mania, requested by @IcePrincess. The Plushie will be requested by the Plushie Quest in one week, and rewarded by the Book Quest immediately.

Confetti 2

Confused Code Monkey

A small bug fix has addressed a long-standing issue with the Plush-O-Matic where it had not been awarding Plushies correctly. Its results are now affected by the Pet that is chosen for scanning, though you can still receive a random Plushie by choosing to scan yourself. This change may help to alleviate the issue of some of the Quest Plushies being prohibitively expensive in the economy. Based on feedback from Users who already noticed the change, we have adjusted the percent chance of receiving a random Plushie of the same species as the scanned Pet. We are continuing to monitor the economic effects of this change and welcome any feedback.

Chocolate Pencil CrayonsColouring Book

I hope you haven't forgotten about our colouring contest. The fearsome Ori is in need of some vibrant colours. A reminder your image must be uploaded and sent to Quil by January 12th, 23:59:59 (IcePets time).

Confetti 1

In one final note, we are temporarily closing Hidden Avatar requests. You may still see a few being released in the coming weeks that were requested prior to this closing, but we will not be taking any new ones in the near future.

Pirate Audril Pinata 2019Angelic Trido Pinata 2019

Pinata Mania is open once again! A new game starts every 30 minutes, giving you a chance to search for one of the 5 new Pinata Items, or at least pick up some consolation prizes.

It's all up to chance -- as soon as one person finds the hidden Pinata, the game ends. However, you'll have a lot of opportunities, because Pinata Mania will stay open until January 17. You may notice the consolation prizes are a bit familiar; you'll have the chance to collect these old Items for about a week, and then it will swap over to an all-new set of Items, so get them while you can!

If you use a UHD from the I.C.E shop on any feature, it will reduce the wait cooldown between pinata clicks!
