It’s time to open the presents! The gift items are as follows: Rudolph Nose (Monday, Dec. 10), Winter Outfit for girls and boys (Tuesday, Dec. 11), and Freeze Ray (Wednesday, Dec. 12). Thanks to Osmium for the pictures below:

If you get a membership before the day is over (in Eastern Standard Time), all 12 of the gifts will be added to your inventory to keep forever.

Now if only Poptropica would remember the non-members among us, too…

🎵 On the seventh day of member gifts, Poptropica gave to me…🎵

Hello, Poptropicans, it’s Lucky Joker here with new stuff to share with you today.

First off, Poptropica has finally updated the Photo Booth since the Halloween update back in October—but, it’s probably not what you’d think. I kind of expected to see some new  holiday props and characters for the season, but I was little disappointed when I discovered that wasn’t the case.

There are 5 new backgrounds that appear to be from a few familiar islands, like Astro-Knights, Mythology, and Wimpy Wonderland (oh look, there’s a winter one!).

It’s safe to assume these new backgrounds will be replacing the good old ones we’re used to since they’re no longer there and these new ones aren’t exactly seasonal. Small update, but still neat in its own right.


Secondly, the third wave of member gifts is coming our way, starting off with some cool Snowboard Gear. Tomorrow (Saturday, the 8th), watch out for the Snowball Toss card, and the next day (Sunday, the 9th), an Elf Follower not too far behind!


And lastly, Home Island has received a full, fun winter makeover! It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas now, wouldn’t you say? ❄️🎄 (Even that LEGO ad tucked away in the corner of the sky, that probably isn’t meant to be visible, is coated in snow… 👀)

So, how are you liking these member gifts so far? And what do you think about the rest of these updates? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section down below. Thanks for reading as always and I’ll talk to you all very soon… pop on!

12 Days of Member Gifts: 6 down, 6 to go

Hey guys, It’s Lucky Joker here with an update on the 12 Days of Member Gifts event going on this month. Thanks to a certain glitcher on the Poptropica Help Chat (PHC), the three next gift items have been revealed!

20181201_180605

If you’re a member, expect a cute Reindeer follower (today’s prize), an Ugly Sweater (12/5), and a super cool Snow Power card (12/6) coming your way! Pictures below courtesy of Osmium:

By the way, if you buy a membership anytime within the month, you’ll get all 12 of the member gifts. How cool is that?

[Update: Sometimes, the body of the Reindeer follower doesn’t quite show every detail. Here’s a pic from PHB reader Shiny B1rd. Still cute, though.]

That’s it for now! Thanks for reading as always, and I’ll talk to you all soon…pop on!

(PS: Why is the photo booth still Halloween themed? 👀)

‘Tis the season to be a member, fa la la la la

How’s it going, Poptropicans? It’s the most wonderful time of the year—the holiday season—and with that, Poptropica has gifted us players with 12 days of all-new gift items, from December 1–12… well, for members anyway.

20181201_180605

We were too late to post about yesterday’s gift, which was an adorable Abominable Snowman follower—but when you login today, you’ll receive a Snowball Cannon. Unfortunately, there have been reports of it causing the game to crash, so use with caution. Pictures below courtesy of Osmium:

Also, thanks to glitcher idk, we know that tomorrow’s gift will be this cool-looking Ski Outfit pictured below along with the previous prizes:

So what do you think of the 12 Days of Member Gifts event? Being a member, of course I’m happy, but I’m hoping non-members will receive some sort of gift as well. Show the non-members some love, Poptropica!

Thanks for reading, and I’ll talk to you all in the next one… pop on!

Community Creations: November 2018

community-creations-logo

Hello once again everyone! Spotted Dragon here bringing you the November recap for Community Creations! November’s theme was food and the featured work is not in any particular order. Be sure to check out all the featured artists!

No clue what’s going on? Go see our intro post.

Top 5 Picks

Happy Turkey Sacrifice Day! by CrazyPaintbrush

CrazyPaintbrush - Happy Turkey Sacrifice Day

Cute scene! For all those living in America, I hope you had a great Thanksgiving Turkey Sacrifice Day! The humor in this piece is really fun and it totally captures the happy chaos of the holiday. These knights just go to show that family doesn’t have to be related by blood. Great coloring! Find her DeviantArt here.

A Classic Flavor! by ArtisticAsianBunny

ArtisticAsianBunny - A Classic Flavor

An adorable personification of popgum! It really is a “classic flavor,” and a classic item at that. I can’t remember a time when it wasn’t in the store! The color scheme of “Poppy” is obviously on point, and her cute simplicity is really that: classic. What’s YOUR favorite flavor of popgum? Find her DeviantArt here.

Ask IJ #5 by Honeybox360

Honeybox360 - Ask IJ 5

Another simple one, but another great one! Ask blogs have become a super cool trend across the Poptropica community, so it was about time we featured one, huh? In this particular one, you can ask Incredible Jumper practically anything! Despite the simple premise of the ask my OC trend, you can tell that this artist puts lots of effort into each answer. Just look at those sweet colors! Anyone else love cotton candy flavored ice cream? Find her DeviantArt here.

Pop-vember Day 2 by BlueShadow1300

BlueShadow1300 - Popvember Day 2

Now this is a unique one! Not directly relating to food, but definitely implying an upcoming… meal. Following happyclonetrooper’s Pop-vember drawing challenge, this piece was based on the prompt “scene from your favorite island.” Though Survival isn’t technically the artist’s favorite island, the scene still turned out great! The Poptropica-styled anatomy of Myron’s chef (dubbed “Clara” by the artist) here is super artistic and simply well drawn. Nice work! Find her DeviantArt here.

Dr. Hare Carrot Cupcakes by Gentle Dolphin

Jordyn Gowens - Dr. Hare Cupcakes.png

Delicious! This entry is super unique and fits this month’s theme perfectly for obvious reasons. Baking is a skill that can take lots of creativity, just like art, except you can eat your masterpiece! These Dr. Hare recreations are super cute and the various expressions show attention to detail. Plus, using carrot cake is a hilarious bonus. I’m really glad we got an actual food submission. They look good enough to eat! Find her Twitter here and check out her posts right here on the PHB!


Honorable Mentions

SlantedFish - 24 Carrot Diner - The Gang's All Back

With the chaos of Thanksgiving and the stress of upcoming exams for a lot of you, submissions were a bit more scarce than usual. So instead of the usual collection of honorable mentions, I decided to feature Slanted Fish’s very own creation! Her “24 Carrot Diner – The Gang’s All Back!” piece is a great “food” related piece, capturing the tone of November with a creative art-style. Check out her DeviantArt here! 😉


December: How do I Participate?

Community Creations is a cool series for anyone in the Poptropica community to join in on. To sum up what it’s about, it’s basically a chance to show off your artwork, creepy fan-fics, Worlds houses, costumes, and anything else that pops into your mind.

If we really like the piece you submit, we will feature it here on the PHB! As long as it relates to that month’s theme. So what is December’s theme? December’s theme is…

Celebration!

December is a month of many holidays across the world, stemming from many different cultures. But no matter what your family celebrates, we want to see what YOU create for it! It’s important to embrace the world’s differences and celebrate what makes us unique, even in a small community like ours.

Soooo, what are you waiting for? The theme is super broad for ultimate creativity! Draw your Poptropican surrounded by friends next to a cozy campfire, make Poptropica themed holiday cookies, write a Poptropica story that starts off with a quiet house (where not even a mouse is making a noise perhaps?), etc. The options are endless. 🙂

Happy Holidays!!!

  • Submitting: Comment below with a link to whatever you’ve created OR share it with me (SydVC aka Spotted Dragon) on DeviantArtTwitter, or Discord.
  • Results: I will feature 5 of the submissions as well as 3 honorable mentions.
  • Limitations: Nothing NSFW, and make sure you relate to the theme.
  • Due Date: I will take any entries before the end of this month. Submit as many things as you’d like!

I will always be sure to let you know I have seen your creation. Bonus points if you make a compelling description for your piece! While quality counts, I’m mainly looking for something to simply catch my eye, so don’t be afraid to join in!

So what are you waiting for? Go make something awesome!

My Place in Poptropica: Silly Socks

This is the My Place in Poptropica story of Silly Socks, who found Poptropica through Diary of a Wimpy Kid and literally dreams about being on the PHB team. See below for details on how to send in your MPIP story to be published here on the PHB!

mpip sillysocks

My name is Silly Socks and I’m sorry if I get off-topica. *eyes roll* My username is epic45. I live in Canada. I belong to the Wildfire tribe. I’m not a great artist, but I try to draw Dr. Hare. He looks pretty good. Speaking of Dr. Hare, he is my favorite villain in Poptropica. I’m a fan of the blog too. *takes deep breath* Okay, here I go.

The Early Years

Many years ago, when I was about 3, I remember my brother playing Wimpy Wonderland Island and even letting me try. I kept on running into the door to the basement were Rodrick was playing.

I later forgot about Poptropica. But I remembered random pieces of it, like the old login screen, Wimpy Wonderland, Dr. Hare, and Greg from Diary of a Wimpy Kid.

Years Later

Years later, I fell in love with the Diary of a Wimpy Kid book series. One day I saw a link to the Diary of a Wimpy Kid website on the back of a book. I checked it out and saw something that looked like the membership symbol, which I clicked on—and it turned out to be Poptropica!

Upon rediscovering Poptropica, I saw things that I had remembered, like the login screen. That’s how I got back into the game.

Me, my friends, and Poptropica vs. Prodigy

My real name is Elizabeth, and I was born in mid-December 2008, which makes me 9, almost 10 today. I’ve tried to bring others to Poptropica.

I have friend named Mikolas who has joined, but he can’t remember how to come to this blog. Mikolas shares a locker at school with another friend, Gavin, who also wants to join Poptropica. Mikolas doesn’t want Gavin to know about Poptropica, but I don’t think that’s fair or nice.

There’s a game I have called Prodigy that I sometimes play. But I also like Poptropica—well, not just like—I love Poptropica! 😊Poptropica is definitely my favorite. It’s my favorite because, unlike Prodigy, Poptropica wouldn’t rub membership in my face (though I still don’t like the idea of membership ☹).

Dreaming to be on the blog

One day I found the PHB because of a YouTube video. The video was about how to do an ASG, and I wanted to do one. So, I went to the help blog and eventually got caught up in the community over here. I comment on this blog as poptropica girl.

My dream is to be a part of the Poptropica Help Blog team. I do, literally, dream about it. Recently, I had a dream about it that started with me in my schools’ playground. I had customized pretty, hot pink, long, blond pigtails. Then the earth became Poptropica. It was night and I had just been invited to the PHB team… but, sadly, it was just a dream.

No matter what, I think I would’ve found my way to Poptropica somehow. I’ve also started to like blogging and I encourage you to write a guest post for the PHB, too. I want to see more “My Place in Poptropica” posts. I’d like to know more about you and your Poptropican. That’s it for now!

Hope you enjoyed this “My Place in Poptropica” story!

If you haven’t already, we invite you to send in your own. Please include your username and a minimum of 500 words, typed with good spelling and grammar, and divided into labeled sections. If you send in your story, we will continue to post new community MPIPs!
