Some achieve greatness – and some have scarves thrust upon them

Hey Poptropicans!

The last prize of the Timmy Failure Island giveaway has been released, and it’s a code! You can enter the promo code LOSTPANTS to receive 75 credits – which you can then use to buy a new item from the Store! The Creators have added two new items you can buy — the billowing Timmy Failure Scarf (for everyone) and the Greatness Flag (members only*).

*Non-members can still get the Greatness Flag for free by scrolling to the end of the Store’s gold card items even though it’s intended for members only. Hurry before this gets patched!

Starting next Thursday, the 17th, members will get to play Timmy Failure Island. Be excited! 😀 Plus, check out our BTS Overview & Theory post for Timmy Failure for a behind-the-scenes look at what to expect, only on the PHB. 😉

Over on the Poptropica mobile app, you can now pick up a free color-changing 8th Birthday Balloon! (Thanks to FairyTale for the tip.) It will be released soon for the online version too, but not until at least September 15th according to a tweet from Poptropica. (Unless you have the Balloons item from the Store – then it’s part of the package! Thanks to Shaggy Tornado for that tip.)


(UPDATE) To pump up the excitement for 8th birthday celebrations, Poptropica also shared this gif of a jumping pixel pig on their blog (you may recognize this creature, but without the party hat and “8” marking, from Early Poptropica Island)!


On a fun note, Poptropica made a little something for fans of the band 5 Seconds of Summer (well, just Luke Hemmings) over on Twitter… the things they do for the fans! 😉


In case you missed it, the latest issue of our PHB fan magazine (#25), The POPCORN, is here! Head over to my last post to check it out. Stay popping, Poptropicans! :mrgreen:

    I’m not very sure why but I got the Greatness Flag for zero credits even though I’m not a member :/ I can’t check if it’s gone as of now since I don’t have Flash on this device but… well, strange happenings.

    Hey guys how ya doin? Headed off to UCLA soon, so that’s exciting! 😛

    The 8 balloon shows up in the Balloons Card, though i don’t know if it will show up in those that already purchased it.

    Hope ya guys are doing well! 🙂

      It’s meant to be members only according to Poptropica’s Twitter, but to be fair, their Twitter has been known to be inaccurate sometimes. You’re right that it doesn’t say members only on it though! 😛

        If it’s gonna to get patched. I’ll probably be on Monday. They don’t do much on weekends. Just to be sure it doesn’t disappear. I saved it into my closet.

What's popping, Poptropicans?
