Greetings Hawk-tropicans! This is Giant Hawk speaking, and today, I have some rather maddening news for you all.
In all of your minds, what was the worst thing that ever happened to Poptropica? To some, it’s the onslaught of unoriginal islands that were released recently. For others, it’s the game’s departure from Pearson Inc. But for quite a large number of people in the community, it was the idea to make sponsored islands members only.
After all this time, the Creators have not only listened, but are responding to that bit of criticism. Introducing… March Madness! (thanks to PHC user AAA for the tip)
From now until the end of the month, March 31, you as a player can choose one members only sponsored island to be released for all again!
These choices, and you may have realized, are Nabooti Island, Big Nate Island, Great Pumpkin Island, Wimpy Wonderland Island, Red Dragon Island, Wimpy Boardwalk Island, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Island! (By the way, courtesy of Charlie the Chocomonkey, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Island is currently open to all for a limited time!)
To enter, simply go to any of the common rooms (or multiverse rooms) on Poptropica, click on the poster you’ll find inside, and cast your vote. Best yet, you can vote indefinitely – so choose your favorite and get to voting!
Bonus points: What island’s common room am I inside for the picture above?
In other news, Pi Day is almost upon us! And Poptropica is celebrating with a not so mathematically inclined new card. Simply log on, and you’ll collect this Cream Pie Toss item power. (Special thanks to WimpyKidFan for the heads up and the pictures coming up!)
UPDATE: Poptropica commented on this post to inform us that the pie item card was not supposed to be released until Monday, March 14 (Pi Day – 3/14). But hey, if you have it sooner, enjoy it! 😋
With it equipped, simply press spacebar to unleash your creamy vengeance upon Poptropica!
So, I can already tell you, my votes will be going towards Red Dragon Island – because honestly, I want to do cool ninja stuff again. But what about you? What island will get your support this month?
Until next time…

Charlie and the chocolate factory
For the bonus points
Then you are correct! 😉
No problem Giant Hawk! 😉
Also vote for Red Dragon!!!
Red Dragon gets my vote. 🙂
I vote for Red Dragon! 🙂
Red Dragon definitely deserves to return. It doesn’t have a different art style and is really fun to play!
Yes, I’ll vote for Red Dragon Island snd Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Red Dragon hands down
Red Dragon island!
Second choice for me would be Nabooti. Just like how these islands don’t fell very sponsored when you play them.
Hey everyone — I’m not sure how WimpyKidFan got his Pi Power. It’s not live for everyone until Monday!
I got it too!
I guess those who have it are pretty lucky then! 😉
I didn’t get the pie.
Well at least you don’t have Double Pi Powers in your inventory.
Red Dragon FTW!
Red Dragon! 😀 But then again, I liked Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, too.
Everyones voting for red dragon but I actually voted for wimpy Wonderland for the paper style 😛
One of my childhood favorites
as a true otaku I only watch red dragon island subbed
Yeah, invite me over 😀 I’ll bring the cosplaying stuff~
“true otaku” gg
I’m gonna vote for Red Dragon
I can’t find the pie ad, do u have to be a boy to get the card?
You shouldn’t have to be a boy. However, the Creators themselves said that now the card shouldn’t be out until Monday.
Hmm… well, Id have to choose between Nabooti and Great pumpkin, since I grew up with them and, besides, they are originals.
I’m voting for Red Dragon too! 🙂 It was a fun island.
Same with the Red Dragon, GH! Grrr, I got so mad when I couldn’t do ninja training! Or Nabooti… But notice, how these are all non-SUI sponsors…
You’re in the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory common room, @Giant Hawk
VOTE BIG NATE ISLAND PLEASE
