Ah, OK. Maybe they're for everyone, not just NC spenders.

EDIT: I wonder why nobody has wanted to comment on the past two Advent Calendar things. Maybe there wasn't much of anything nice to say, hehe.

Today's especially just defies any kind of explanation. Hearing it repeating in the background without seeing it leaves some odd things to the imagination.
Spoiler: open/close
You find 758 Neopoints!!!

You find a Soggy Sewer Gift!!!
Image


You also find a Sewage Surfer Wocky Holiday Action Figure!!!
Image

It's a Sewage Surfer animation, and there's a collision with a Swamp Gas Techo, who is MUCH too happy about the surprise tree and pile of presents...and seems to be wearing a diaper it obviously hasn't taken off since it was a baby.

(spoiler for Day 13)
Spoiler: open/close
You find 958 Neopoints!!!

You find a Feather Wig!!!
Image
(wearable)


You also find a Dreaming of Candy!!!
Image

A Jetsam is sleeping, dreaming of piles of candy, gnawing on them - and waking to find himself gnawing instead on his feather pillow.

Yeah, I agree - day 12's animation was pretty weird. I liked today's gifts, though!
Spoiler: open/close
The wig is so adorable! I don't usually like wearable items (don't have much use for them since I'm not into customization), but this is cute ^^ Hee.

I feel that it's all right to double-post on advent calendar threads if no one has commented on the previous day's items. Mainly selfish, because new posts remind me to pick up advent items. (I may not play, but I like a lot of these items. The wig is weirdly cute!)

Spoiler: open/close
You find 802 Neopoints!!!

You find a Vampiric Christmas Cookies!!!
Image

You also find a Count von Roo Stocking!!!

The animation for this day was kind of weird.. it showed Count von Roo jumping down a chimney, then a weird-looking Blumaroo excitedly running downstairs (thinking the Count is Santa) and offers him some cookies. Heh. Sort of cute in a weird way.
Day 17's prizes:
Spoiler: open/close
You find 648 Neopoints!!!

You find a Pinchit Beanie!!!
Image

You also find a Stuck in the Lost Isle Background!!!

The Habitarium Kougra dude (who was drawn REALLY weirdly owo; ..I think it was him, anyway |D;) and Hugo Fairweather (from the Journey to the Lost Isle plot) exchange Mootixes. I liked this animation! It was pretty funny.
Aaand today's prizes:
Spoiler: open/close
You find 635 Neopoints!!!

You find a Polar Chucks!!!
Image

You also find a Inside a Sandcastle Foreground!!!
Image

Dieter the Polarchuck (from the Snowmuncher game) is hanging around Mystery Island eating ice cubes, then sees a huge block-shaped sandcastle and gets an idea of what to do with it :B Another good animation. I like the prizes, too - the foreground is really nice ^^.

I really liked yesterdays. I thought it was a clever way to compare two characters that had petpetpets in common. :D And a background is always nice.

Today's animation is the best I've seen so far this year (did miss afew last week/weekend though). The first to make me laugh a bit, anyhow.

Oops, I missed Day 14. How did that happen?

I loved the Dieter animation today, the best of the year without a doubt. Also I like that they're trying hard this year to give non-wintery items. I do often find it frustrating that we end up with a glut of wintery wearables and random items because of the advent calendar, which aren't commonly usable year round.

(spoiler for Day 19)
Spoiler: open/close

Image


You also find a Snow Wars II - The Board Game!!!
Image


Animaton:
The Gnorbu on the Lunar Temple sees a big image of Kreludor with snowfall and gets excited, jotting down his findings. Meanwhile, two Grundos are giggling because they're holding a Kreludor snowglobe up to the Gnorbu's telescope.

Ah, another day that's been missed for review. Ah well.

Today's animation really amused me, and we got some nice goodies with it.

(spoiler for Day 21)
Spoiler: open/close
You find 913 Neopoints!!!

You find a Snowager Sword!!!
Image


You also find a Snowager Negg!!!
Image


The Snowager comes up to a pile of neggs outside the Neggery, sniffs it, is pleased, and claims it...Snowager-style of course. A Scorchio and Kacheek approach carrying some wood. The Snowager stares them down, and the two stare back in startled disbelief, yell, and run away.

Wow, the Snowager is sort-of transparent. I hadn't noticed before, but they definitely make him like that in the animation.

I knew from NQII that the Snowager does have the ability to talk, but i never put a voice to him. I'm also a little offput by how he seems to change length throughout the clip, and in part of the animation, the neck has a sharply-bent underside. Someone also goofed with the color of the wood the Scorchio is carrying.

Gah, I keep forgetting to comment on the prizes. I agree, day 21's animation was great :) definitely put a smile on my face.

Here are day 20's prizes:
Spoiler: open/close
You find 625 Neopoints!!!

You find a Who is Number Two?!!!
Image

You also find a Super Size Borovan!!!
Image

Weirdest animation ever - it was of a Warf with a pirate hat jumping up and down in front of a barrel of Borovan while people watch. XD It was kind of charming in its simplicity, if that makes sense.
Day 22's prizes:
Spoiler: open/close
You find 518 Neopoints!!!

You find a Holiday Hanso Plushie!!!
Image

You also find a Stealing Through the Holidays!!!
Image

Brynn walks through the castle (I guess?), past a cross-eyed Skeith guard, then past Hanso (holding a gift), does a double take, then walks back and grins at Hanso. ...Was anyone else creeped out by everyone's eyes in this animation? They looked kind of weird to me, haha.
Day 23's prizes:
Spoiler: open/close
You find 600 Neopoints!!!

You find a Plain Fruitcake!!!
Image

You also find a Stone Christmas Tree!!!
Image

A Tyrannian Kacheek and Nimmo trek off to the Giant Omelette - except it's now the Giant Fruitcake. Very creative animation :D I kinda hoped that the Giant Omelette would -actually- have been turned into a fruitcake.. did anyone else? -silly- :P
Aaand today's prizes :B
Spoiler: open/close
You find 867 Neopoints!!!

You find a Plate of Christmas Kookith Cookies!!!
Image

You also find a Im Not A Gift! A Christmas Kookiths Tale!!!
Image
(I really wish you could use punctuation in item titles)

Today's animation was REALLY FREAKIN' WEIRD. A blue Acara is patting some snow together (maybe making a snowman? I'm not sure), then freezes up. A white Tuskaninny and blue Bruce pop up behind the Acara and also stare like a deer-in-the-headlights.. at a pile of presents on a sledge that begins to slide down the hill. They slide after it.. except it isn't a pile of gifts, it's a pile of Christmas Kookiths.

..I miss the days when the Advent Calendar animations were just stuff like an Asparagus Chia tap dancing XD

Merry Christmas, y'all!

(spoiler for Day 25)
Spoiler: open/close
You find 543 Neopoints!!!

You find a 8-Bit Moehog Plushie!!!
Image


You also find a 8-Bit Snowchomby!!!
Image


For the animation (oddly, the best animation-quality-wise so far), we get sent back to good ol' Mario-style games with an 8-Bit Moehog and Chomby, going through the game dodging snowballs. The Chomby gets face-splatted with a snowball, so the Moehog ultimately wins it and does the now-expected "ha-hee!" happy shout as it reaches a Christmas tree with presents and fireworks.

Spoiler for Day 26
Spoiler: open/close
You find 718 Neopoints!!!

You find a Miniature Gingerbread City!!!
Image


You also find a Grarrl Repellant!!!
Image


The animation is a nice detailed city of gingerbread houses. The red Grarrl from Pterattack stomps on it and roars, happy with his creation and destruction in the kitchen.

With the awesome detail put into this animation, it pains me to see the horribly wonky arms.

Spoiler for Day 27
Spoiler: open/close
You find 774 Neopoints!!!

You find a Cobrall Holiday Tree!!!
Image (wearable)


You also find a Regurgitated Gift!!!
Image

Animation: A Halloween Grundo is dressed up like a morbid cross between Grim Reaper and Santa (i approve!! yay for clever dual customization on a NPP), and the purple Cobrall nearby has an elf hat. As he places gifts on the floor, a baby Hissi gets his attention (with a sighing-growl and halfhearted wave from the Grundo) and then points back to the Cobrall. The Cobrall has swallowed the tree whole and is all bloated and weird. So far, i think this has been my favorite animation this year! :D
