2008 | What’s this game my sister keeps playing?

One afternoon in February 2008, I noticed my sister playing a computer game. I recognized it from Funbrain, and from seeing kids at school playing it. But honestly, I had no idea what it was. So I walked over, sat next to her, and just watched her play. After a while, I decided I would play too. At first, I didn’t even know how to save an account, so I just kept re-creating the same Poptropican.

Finally, I made my first account with a character named Sticky Foot, who looked nothing like me or my current Poptropican, but I just thought she looked funny. When I explored the few different islands, I didn’t know what to do. I didn’t know that we were supposed to complete quests, so I’d just hop around on buildings. When I finally figured out that each island had a quest, I began an attempt to complete them right away. I made my current Poptropica account some time in 2009. I played Poptropica a lot for the next few years.

2010–2011 | Mom, Poptropica isn’t working!!

One day, while my computer was getting kinda old and a lot slower, Poptropica just wouldn’t work. I tried to log onto my account, but it wouldn’t let me access the game. Since my mom is really good with computers, I asked her to help me fix it. But it wasn’t a simple fix. In fact, it took her days doing all kinds of stuff to get it to work (probably just because the computer wasn’t so great). She got it working again, but I got a new computer the next month anyway.

2012 | Membership

In April 2012, I began to get tired of all the advertisements for Poptropica membership, because I wanted one. I must admit, I can be a little (or a lot) jealous at times, and I was pretty jealous of all the people who had membership. I beat all the current islands, so I didn’t have any more credits to buy the things I wanted.

So, I decided to just ask my mom. She actually said yes right away, and I got my first membership game card (back when that was still a thing). Once I activated it, I immediately bought a bunch of items from the Store that I had always wanted.

2013 | Making Poptropica Movies

In early 2013, I noticed the Poptropica blogger community, but what affected me more was the Poptropica YouTube community (which is still small). I’m not talking about the people who do walkthroughs, because there are a lot of those, but I mean people who made edited Poptropica movie-like videos. The few of those that I saw inspired me to make my own channel.

On June 1st 2013, I created a channel called PoptropicaPerfectSky. Through my channel and other related accounts, I began to meet other Poptropica players.

2014 | A huge surprise!

On February 1st 2014, just about 6 years after I started playing Poptropica, I made a video that was different than usual. Rather than making a video with a storyline as I normally do, I made a tour of Poptropica Labs (the early version of Realms).

One morning while checking my comment notifications, I saw several people talking about the Creators’ Blog. To my surprise, my Poptropica Labs Tour video was featured on the Creators’ Blog! I was just so shocked, and I immediately emailed the Creators to thank them.

2015 | More Poptropica & More Editing

In 2015, I was very active on Poptropica. I began to catch up on a few of the episodic islands that I forgot to complete.

As far as my YouTube channel goes, I got some really good editing software and began making longer, more complicated Poptropica movies, fashion shows, and a Poptropica cooking competition show. One of my favourite parts out of this whole thing is talking to other Poptropica players.

2016 | Busy, but also not so busy?

Yes, now that I’m older, I am a little busier than when I first started playing Poptropica. But actually, that doesn’t stop me from being active on Poptropica. Many people say that high school keeps them so busy that they can’t do anything they used to do, but it really doesn’t (at least not for me). I mean, who spends 24 hours a day studying? I still have plenty of time to play Poptropica (and other games) and I’m not planning on stopping any time soon.

This year, I also discovered some amazing things like the Avatar Studio Gift, which I used to get some really cool outfits, thanks to the people here at Poptropica Help. Thanks for reading my story!

  3. My Place in Poptropica: Teal Wings
    2010-2012: Early Days
    I was about four or five years old, when I started to play Poptropica. We were at the library, when I saw my sister playing a game. I asked her about what she was playing and she said, “You are a baby! Your tiny brain of yours can`t do anything!” Those words stung like bees. So when I went home I went to start a Poptropica account.
    My first account was called, Messy Speck. I like that name because, it was so…. Me. When my sister saw me playing on Poptropica, she wanted to help me. She showed me what the icons meant, how to make friends and more. Back then, I did not know how to beat a single island! I needed help, and fast.

    2013: Poptropica Help Blog
    I was searching one day for a website to help me beat the islands. Then, I saw my sister looking at a walkthrough. I always studied it, then I found its name, Poptropica Help Blog. I immediately clicked on it. It gave me so much information! I would spend days on the computer, reading its tips and tricks. I was in love!   Now, I used it all the time to do something.

    2014: Not On a Lot
    In 2014, I was super busy, I only played on the weekends. Besides, Poptropica will never disappear. Right? I was on and off Poptropica a lot, playing other games my friends play. Plus my computer had a lot of virus. So, I quit playing. I had lost interest.

    2015: A New Account
    In 2015, I got a new account, Cool Star. I had more interest in Poptropica. I did not use an account a lot. So, I read the PHB a lot. I could not comment about the stories, because I did not have an email account. So, I wrote about them in a journal. Then, I fell in love with writing. I loved the way you can express your feelings with an anonymous name!
    Pretty soon, I had three journals full of my feelings. Writing did not just become a hobby, but a passion. I wrote fiction and nonfiction articles about anything! I became addicted! Then, I stopped playing Poptropica. My other friends were playing new games, so was I. Then, I stopped playing. Forever. At least, that`s what I thought. I became busy in other things, so Poptropica was the least of my worries. I was still writing. A lot.

    2016: A New Way
    In 2016, I actually found time for Poptropica. I had gotten an email account so, IT WAS COMMENTING TIME!! I actually did not comment a lot. So, I kept writing
    Now, I am in 5th grade. It is a lot of fun writing about things you do not want to write about! 🙂
    Anyways, I loved playing Poptropica! My username is Teal Wings, and my name on Poptropica is Calm Star. I am not calm!!! I have beaten 20 islands, but not on the same account. On Poptropica, you can`t say mean things, I LOVE that! Why do you have to be mean to someone? And you might see me in the common rooms! Anyways, without Poptropica, I would not have loved writing and dance.

    The End

What's popping, Poptropicans?
