Whodat say day create dem own island?

You might be wondering, “Why did Angry Wing name his post in such a strange way?” Well, the answer to that is, well, um, next question.ย You remember the Poptropica books, right? In particular, there’s the Island Creator Kit – which may come in handy for theย Create Your Dream Poptropica Island Contest!

Here’s the real story. Starting August 1, anyoneย  can “create” an island and send it to the Creators for evaluation. One lucky winner, just one, will have their island created and put on the map. (Literally, on the Poptropica Map.) Buying the Island Creator Kit might help you get started with some ideas.ย After seeing a few comments, I am clarifying: there is no purchase necessary.

How exciting! I will be partaking in the contest, but if anyone needs a little inspiration or help as well, so to speak, here’s my card. (I don’t really have a card.)

You can find the entry form here.

Black Widow finishes off with “Keep an eye out for more information about the rules and how to enter. And for the inside scoop on how to design a winning Island, check out the Island Creator Kit, coming on August 1!”

Any questions, class? ๐Ÿ™‚

On another note, my blog Just Cuz Its Fridayย needs your help deciding on a new logo. The candidates and the voting can be found here. Please help us out by voting!

Thank you, and goodbye!

    1. it’s weird, on the websught, your poptropicans age can go all the way to age 15, and start on age 6, but in the contest, it’s only 8-12. I DON’T GET IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. You don’t have to buy it to participate – according to the official rules, “No purchase necessary. A purchase will not enhance your opportunity to win.” However, having the Island Creator Kit might give you some inspiration or at least insight into the creative process of making an island. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. I already have mine. But none taken. You don’t know me and don’t know if I would take it or not. But they prob. wouldn’t pick it if it was the same as urs.

  1. That means I win because I’m the only one who can do it!!!! Well, they prob need at least 11 people to participate. PARTICIPATE 11 OTHER PEOPLE! Please! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I just noticed in the eligibility section of the rules: “Open to residents of the fifty United States and the District of Columbia, ages 8-12.”

    Aw, man!

    1. What? Uh oh! People saying they can’t participate! (Looks at rules) whew good thing I’m turning thirteen in may!

  3. I saw your update and now I’m pretty excited, but the form doesn’t really make very much sense because usually the centerpiece of the island is not on the main street. Such as vampire hunter island or cryptids island.

  4. Well, I’m too old to participate so here’s some great ideas:

    1.) Monster Carnival Island
    – you know what this one is about

    2.) Skyscraper Danger Island
    – a skyscraper is on fire and it’s your job to save the citizens and discover who the criminal is

    3.) Jungle Safari Island
    – there’s a temple in the jungle with a sacred artifact; it’s your job to find the temple and protect yourself from the animals and evil curse that surrounds it

    4.) Journey to the Center of Planet Poptropica Island
    – you are in a cavern and fall 50 miles down in a hole and wind up in a new world where unicorns and mystical creatures thrive – a world that’s in Poptropica; but how are you going to get out?

    5.) Cyberspace Island (or Computer Virus Hunter Island)
    – You get zapped into a computer and experience a world like Tron – but in this version, the bad guy is a virus and you have to stop him

    1. Oooh and I have another good idea –

      6.) Where am I Island
      – A guy takes you and next thing you know you are in a locked room, and you get out and there are more rooms, then you help the people get out and you all discover you are in a deserted town, and if you try to escape, you get hurt

  5. I think I am going to go with Elphangor’s Journey to the Center of Poptropica Island idea, but with a few tweaks.

  6. In addition to not being in the 8-12 age range, I also don’t live in the US, so I can’t participate either. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ If you do qualify, I’d encourage you to give this a try! Hopefully the winning island will be full of awesome. Plus, you can win a full set of Poptropica books. ๐Ÿ˜›

    1. How about Sleeper XD Maybe you can make it that you have to wake them up by ruining their dreams XD

      1. Dream Master is good, maybe you’ll need help from a scientist, he’ll teleport you to different Poptropican’s dreams like the Mayor’s, Police, Maids and assistants ๐Ÿ˜€

  7. I’m totally going to enter! ๐Ÿ˜€
    I just think it’s unfair that only people 8-12 can enter and they have to live in the US. That is just unfair! People in England and Australia speak English too! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    1. People in every country speak English! Obviously, if you’re on Poptropica, a site where there is no sound and ALL of the dialogue is in English, people understand and speak English. But yes, that’s absolutely ridiculous.

      1. Well, there WILL be sound. Plus, Captain Crawfish lives in Barbados!

      2. Well, it may seem that way on a computer, but most of the time the computer translates the text to english.

  8. awwww…I can’t join T_T
    I live in another country and I’m too old but oh well, I’m rooting for anyone whoever participated :))

  9. I’m Bane, yes, that’s my name.
    When you hear the name Bane, I guarantee the pain.
    I’m coming after you, Bruce Wayne.
    I’m stronger, smarter, and clinically insane.

    I’m Bane, yes, that’s my name.
    Bruce Wayne and the Batman are totally the same.
    I broke his back mortal comBAT smack,
    then I cracked my ’28 Krug champagne.

    I’m Bane, yes, it’s a shame.
    I declare martial law, and you all complain!
    I laugh when you ask why I wear the mask.
    I’ll explain. It’s because…..

    I’m Bane, yes, that’s my name.
    You say it too much, the name becomes inane.
    Of course! Some think my plan lacks gain.
    If you say it too my face, I’ll crash your plane.

    1. Oh….. Bane!!!!! Why did you- wait, i myself will save the world and stop Bane! Here is my idea!
      Dc comics island
      All the bad guys broke out and are putting a bomb in the earth. Its up to you to disarm it and save the world! And superman is helping too! Bonus: the baddies are gone, but loads of Kryptonite were found in superman’s house, and the police want you! Can you save yourself and find who did it? Spoiler: it was Bane.

  10. hatersloveme2490/hatersloveme4897/hip hop lover/17-time winner of Reality TV island/Poptropica girl with 2576 friends with membership/has all 35 medals/knucklehead5249 call me any of that. says:

    I’m 9…

  11. I’m 12 and I live in the US, except I’m pretty sure everyone’s already taken the best ideas…!! I have one that I think is a great one, but I need to think about it ๐Ÿ™‚ Plus I can’t draw so the character sketches will suck ๐Ÿ˜›

  12. I sadly can’t enter, because I’m older than 12… My cousin is in the age requirements though, so I’m hoping to ask her to enter for me, and just split the books with me ;p

  13. and my brother where late for this contest i think????????
    but we would not be able to do it any way where not in the age limit
    i’m still buying the kit for fun

What's popping, Poptropicans?
