When Robinson Crusoe appears beyond Monkey Wrench Island

Hey Poptropicans, what’s popping?

Crusoe’s on Home Island! Okay, it’s not the Crusoe of Monkey Wrench Island – it’s Robinson Crusoe from the new animated movie, The Wild Life (but titled Robinson Crusoe outside the US). There’s an advertisement for it on Poptropica, but only on the mobile app (which you can get here – looks like they’ve updated the promo page for that as well!). (Thanks to Friendly Foot for the tip.)

Anyway, I personally found trying to enter the ad room a bit glitchy – you should be able to enter just by tapping the door entrance, but it took me a few tries of logging out. Sometimes an “Action” button would appear in the bottom corner that you could also tap to enter the room.


Once you enter, you can head up to the top left corner of the room to play a game where you have 30 seconds to tap on fruit before they get too close (as indicated by their size). If you experience the glitchiness of some fruit not appearing and causing you to lose like I did, try exiting the game and going back to it – that fix worked for me. The prizes for winning are a Carmello Follower (floating chameleon; pressing the Action button makes him camouflage) and Pirate Costume.

In other news, RedRiderYT recently pointed out to us that the online Poptropica Shop is no longer selling the custom Poptropican t-shirts and hoodies. Searching for “Poptropica” on the third party website that made the clothing, TV’s Toy Box, results in a “forbidden” error.

If you have one of these shirts or hoodies, that means it’s now a (real life) rare item! Treasure it, keep it, and wear it proudly. You’ll be missed, Poptropica shirt shop.

Oh and by the way, there’s a new Poptropica tool for customization around, no download required… those who are interested can check it out on the PHB’s Glitching page. 🙂

Don’t forget, this weekend is the Closing Ceremony for the PHB Tribal Tournament! It’s going to be a lot of fun, so try to make it if you can! Check out this post for all the details.

That’s all for now – thanks for popping in, Poptropicans!

  1. Ooo. The Wild Life ad looks pretty cool, along with a couple of decent prizes. I’d been wondering where the shirts have gone. It’s unfortunate they’re no longer selling. On a greater note, woohoo! It’s time to see which Poptropica Tribe came out on top, of the Tribal Tournament. 😀

  2. I HELPED!!!! I had really wanted a shirt though so now I’m even sadder because it is official and I wanted one for my birthday. 😔

    1. Thanks for the help. 🙂 Yeah, that is unfortunate that they shut it down (my guess is that it wasn’t making enough profit). However, you could try finding a custom shirt printing company and ask to have your Poptropican printed that way.

    1. It can’t be a coincidence, seeing as it’s their newest island, so they would have the clearest memories of it. Total laziness, probably. Anyway, the movie sounds quite interesting. 🙂

    2. Well, it’s still a fitting background, so I wouldn’t fault them for using it here. It saves time that can be used to work on other things, such as New Poptropica. 🙂

What's popping, Poptropicans?
