Animals, which then become pets, are chosen for the students in their second year - Legacy Year - as an aid in the students quest to fulfill their destiny. Wonderlandians already have their pets when they come through the portal to Ever After, just like Earl Grey, Madeline Hatter's pet dormouse, Carrolloo, Kitty Cheshire's pet caterpillar and Shuffle, Lizzie Hearts pet hedgehog.
The students journey into the Enchanted Forest and a ritual takes place in order for them to gain their pets. Maddie explains that the students must do the Animal Call and Maddie teaches the students what to do and what to say.
"Monkey, tiger, antelope
Elephant, Bunny, cantaloupe
Mousey, guinea pig, skunky-poo
Rat, turkey, chicken cordon bleu-
Callooh callay, oh frabjous day!"
But it seems that it isn't necessary and all that is needed for non-Wonderlandian students, is to declare their name and pull spell poppers prepared by Professor Poppa Bear. The poppers are chosen from a bag, so it appears random, and each one has a different coloured star.
