This is the My Place in Poptropica story of Brave Hero, who first found Poptropica through the app earlier this year but loves playing online too. See below for details on sending in your own MPIP!
Hi everyone! It’s me, Brave Hero. Since a lot of people have been sharing their stories, I’ve decided to send in my own. I haven’t played Poptropica for a really long time like others have, but I still would love to share my story with you. I don’t know about you, but I think it’s actually quite interesting.
My username is smartcute5, for those who are wondering. So, without further ado, let’s get started on my story…
February 2016 | Discovering the Poptropica App
It was an average Tuesday at school. I was at art class, just drawing some random stuff. While I was drawing, I overheard one of my friends say something about “Poptropica” and something about “credits.” “What is Poptropica, an app or something?” I wondered. I was filled to the brim with curiosity, so after school, I grabbed my tablet, searched up “Poptropica,” and found the Poptropica app.
After downloading it, I opened it, and then I saw little people running across the screen. I clicked on “New Player,” and created my character. Her name was Silly Sun, and she looked just like me, except the clothing choice. After creating her, I started a tutorial, where I had to collect some missing shards to make my first medallion.
When the tutorial was finished, I started playing some of the islands. I immediately fell in love with that game, but then realized that some of the islands were hard. I needed help, so I used video guides (mostly Thinknoodles) to help me complete the islands. I thought this phase would never end until…
March 2016 | Hiatus
I’m not sure why, but Poptropica just got away from me by the following month, in March. Maybe because some parts of certain islands seemed impossible to complete, or Poptropica just got more boring to me as time progressed. Also, since I had school, I really had little free time.
I thought I was going to be off forever, but soon, something made me want to go back on…
April 2016 | The PHB & Brave Hero’s Beginning
I was just going on my computer, when I suddenly remembered Poptropica. I searched it up and found the website for it. But before I clicked the link, something else caught my eye, something called “The Poptropica Help Blog.” I went on the blog, and found out that the blog was like a Poptropica guide and fun place. It brought back so much nostalgia from my previous Poptropica-playing.
After scrolling around the blog, I went on Poptropica, and created an account online. After selecting my age and gender, a little person busted out of a box. Finding the perfect name was quite hard and took a long time of clicking, but I finally found one: Brave Hero! Then, I landed on Home Island, and I completed my very first island, Monkey Wrench Island, which gave me my first medallion.
May 2016 | Finding Fashion!
Nothing really happened in May, except for me just completing islands and getting new costumes and all of that stuff. I was looking for some way for my Poptropican to look nicer, instead of wearing a classic pink shirt and skirt and a bare smile.
That’s when I found out that the PHB had two posts, one with loads of cute outfits, and another with a mountain of ASGs with awesome and rare costumes. It was perfect! Now, my Poptropican usually wears a pink one-shoulder shirt and belt, a white skirt, coral sunglasses, and a pink cape (to empathize my name, Brave Hero).
June 2016 – present | PHC and Beyond
I was just scrolling around the blog when I came across the PHC, which is the PHB’s chat hangout area on Discord. I created an account and started to chat with others. At first, I wasn’t that active on it, but over time, I met other Poptropicans and became friends with them. Now, I’m basically always online.
Right now, I’m very thankful for joining the community. I have been on Poptropica a lot, and as of now I’ve completed somewhere around 24 islands. My favorite island is Super Power Island, mostly because of my name, Brave Hero. I’m also excited about the New Poptropica, but also sad because it de-emphasizes the Old Pop. I’m mostly hyped about the shoes, which I find weird.
And that’s My Place In Poptropica! If you want to friend me, my username is smartcute5. Bye for now!
