As promised, Poptropica’s big birthday bash is under way! Talking to the Prize Wheel guy (after spinning the wheel) informs you of this news:
There are two prizes that can be obtained through the store for free, rather than any sort of balloon-hunt as in previous years. This year’s prizes are a blue balloon with a green nine on it, and a cat sitting atop a birthday cake as a hat!
Credit to idk for the first two pictures!
Look at how happy Cuddly Eel is over these prizes! You can just see the smile on her face! I’m sure it’s there. Right Cuddly Eel? Right? …I hate it when my avatar doesn’t agree with me.
(Seriously though, this cat is adorable. I love this cat. I want to adopt this cat. Can you tell I’m a cat person?)
Get it? Cats have 9 lives? Poptropica is 9 years old? Sorry, dog people, you can’t deny that the cat wins this round.
UPDATE: In addition, Poptropica has posted photos of the Creators at the big birthday bash, with the original creator, Jeff Kinney himself, cutting the cake!
How many Creators can you recognize in the photo below?
UPDATE UPDATE: There will not be a balloon-popping event, as the Creators have since confirmed both on Twitter and in the comments below. Sorry to get your hopes up!
Thanks for the great nine years, Poptropica, even though I was only around for the last five or so. Here’s to another great year!

FINALLY the birthday items are here!!
And yay my first ever first like and comment
welcome aboard cuddlybrain!
I’m sorry but…I don’t like cats…
A cartoon cat can’t be that bad! 😛
Btw is the PHB gonna have a party for this or not?
We never said we were having one, but anyone can start a party anytime on the PHC if people are interested.
I don’t like cats either, really sorry, it’s just their rude, sassy personalities😠
-throws sparkles on her head-
FEEL MEH WRATH ):3
LOL, but why sparkles?
….IM A FAIRY
-jumps in the air and faceplants, making sparkles fall out of my pockets-
*starts singing it’s possible from seussical jr, sound energy blows away the sparkles*, *uses a very soft tissue to wipe the sparkles from shirt gently and with the greatest of care* there, the sparkles are gone
I have found fairies…
*starts to scream cuz balloon don’t change colors*
Yeah, I’m definitely a cat person. XD It’s a shame Pop didn’t make it a prize hunt, like last year – it would have been much more interesting.
It definitely would be.🎉🎂
What’s the grand prize?
The grand prize is any one of the bronze cards – I got “Robin Hood”. I think I already had it though… 😅
Too bad the birthday hat is a helmet item because my avatar has a cyborg eye.😕
I feel ya. My avatar feels naked without her goggles.
My avatar feels naked without his jester eye… Let’s cry together : (
It used to be those goggles actually.
*puts hat on*
My cat is calico. Can i have a calico hat?
There’s a what tonight that i can’t go too?
I do hope that the creators do something more fun.. as SF said.. THE BALLOON DOESN’T CHANGE COLORS!!!!!
I love kittens!
Look at this!
Meow! I mean happy birthday poptropica lol! 😀
We’re not doing a birthday balloon event this year. Please keep in mind that when people snoop in our files, what they find is not necessarily an indication of anything we are planning.
We have lots of fun things happening for the rest of 2016 on the current Poptropica (we have a ton planned for October!) — plus we’re also working like crazy on the New Poptropica. So get psyched! More to come!
Whoops, our bad. 😅 Can’t wait to see what else you have planned for next month though!
Thanks for giving us the heads up poptropica! Happy B-Day to you guys as well! 🎂
Personally, I love cats, but I like dogs too, for the dog lovers. Anyway Happy Birthday Poptropica! 😀
Happy birthday, Poptropica! Thanks for a great nine years and counting. Although this year has been a little lacking in the islands we’ve expected for so long, I’m optimistic for New Pop. 🙂
Now that’s a Cat-in-the-Hat I’d wear. 🐱
Happy 9th birthday poptropica i have been here since your 3rd birthday!
oh by the way are we going to have a poptropica help blog party on the 9th poptropica birthday?
I was wondering the same thing. 😉
cats are the best but dogs are still good to
This is a cattish bash!
Wow, I’ve been lion around for too long!
Happy Purr-thday, Poptropica! I am thankfur for these paw-some 9 years of fun! I’m feline awesome! I’m too fur-tunate to play a game like this. Stay paw-sitive and wonder-fur!
Amazing cat puns, Slip
Honestly,the actual prizes are atrocious. The balloon doesn’t change colour,and the hat covers your hair. I’m not a fan.
The original birthday balloon didn’t change color either – while that effect is cool, it’s pretty solid (pun intended) without it. 😉 Although I do wish hair didn’t disappear with the hat, the hat itself is a cute design.
Poptropica is turning 9? More like going back to 4..
