What Are Pixels?
In December 2008, Habbo released a new currency, 'Pixels'. The only way you could earn pixels was by earning achievements etc. They could not be purchased. To redeem pixels, the Pixel Shop was opened, with special kinds of furniture and effects e.g, Rentals, Effects and its own set of collectibles. Also, the "noob furniture" was integrated and further to be known as Hello furniture! They were removed from Habbo in late 2012, and the whole section of the catelogue was removed, though some speculate it to return.
There are 3 items you can rent for your room to make it look that bit more awesome! They are Explosions, Bubbles and a Flamethrower!
Automobile effects/rentals were released not long after Room Rentals. You could now purchase roads, signs and even cars!
With effects, you could make yourself shine with sparkles, or even make yourself fall in love with love hearts. User effects to this day are still frequently used by Habbo users! After the removal of pixels, these were made buyable along with the automobiles for credits instead.
