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!
