JAKKS Pacific ran a total of 7 series of Key Quest plush and one special Royal series. These hang tags were star-shaped, had a shiny foil border, and were inside a plastic pouch to protect the Virtual Prize Code inside. The tag was both tied with a ribbon and attached to the plushie itself, so unscrupulous shoppers could not peek at the codes inside without tampering the tag even if they removed the ribbon.
Key Quest plushies arrived at retailers in cases of 12 plushies, and each contained 1 of 3 possible limited edition plushies. The tags on these limited edition plushie have a gold trim instead of the standard blue. There were also a number of retailer exclusive Key Quest plushies, and these tags have the retailer's logo on them. Four plushies came with figures attached to them, and these versions of the plushies have yellow stars embroidered under their front feet.
Between series 4 and 5, two limited edition boxes of Royal Neopets were released exclusively at Toys R Us. These royal plushies were sold in 3 packs and could not be purchased individually.
Target exclusive plushies Striped Gelert, Striped Blumaroo, and Striped Korbat were originally planned for this series but were never released in the US. There is some evidence that these plushies were produced to some degree, and at least one of the species may have been released in South America, but even so, they remain realistically unattainable.
An eighth series was in development but was unfortunately cancelled. Series 8 planned to introduce the first Peophin and Tonu plushies.
