There’s been a lot mixed opinions about Marapets, a virtual pet website almost identical to Neopets. Some call a cheaper knockoff of Neopets, but despite the similarities, Marapets offers some fun advantages.


Similarities

These are some of the most obvious similarities between Marapets and Neopets. Both sites let you:

  • create pets using the same four colors (red, blue, green and yellow)
  • adopt or disown pets
  • style your pets with themed clothing or colors
  • train your pets for battle
  • build homes for your pets
  • play games for points
  • buy and sell through an auction
  • sell items through your shop
  • explore a world of different lands
  • invest in the stock market
  • send mail and make friends
  • pay real money to access extra site functions

  • Human Character

    One great feature that only Marapets has is the human characters called dolls. You can create your own doll and style him or her with different hairdos, facial features, skin colors, clothes, shoes and accessories. You can even create a doll based on 12 different celebrity styles, including Zac Efron, Miley Cyrus, Rihanna and more. Use your marapoints to shop for outfits, or buy coupons for a trip to the salon or plastic surgeon!


    Pros of Marapets

  • You can score 1500 marapoints per game (Neopets caps you at 1000)
  • You can own up to 12 different pets at once (Neopets limits you to 4)
  • Pets can get full time or part time jobs
  • Shops restock faster than Neopets’ shops
  • Shop items are listed alphabetically instead of randomly
  • Under "Shops", you'll find a list of all the shops and quests
  • Lots of easy quests and missions

  • Cons of Marapets

  • More technical problems with sending your game scores
  • Poorer quality graphics
  • More ads getting in the way
  • Games aren’t as fun or challenging
  • You have to enter a security code every time you buy something and finish a quest
