Poptropica Pup, Contest Idea, and Code Winner!

Hey Poptropicans!

Last week, Skinny Moon posted several pics on Poptropica’s Snapchat (@PoptropicaSC), which you can check out below. Unlike Poptropica’s other social media, snaps disappear after 24 hours (as do Instagram Stories, also below), so we’ve saved them for more permanent viewing!

Of special interest is Toby, Skinny Moon’s pet dog, and the designated Poptropica Pup! The last two pics are from the Stories feature on Instagram, and the one of Toby is captioned: It’s tough being a Poptropica Creator’s dog and having to stay inside while she works. #Toby #bored #walkme #sorrybuddy

Cute right? The other is a reminder that if you’re entering the #MyPoptropicaCostume contest, your account needs to be public, not private.

Keep up with the latest by following them on the ‘gram (@poptropicaCreators)!

Speaking of Skinny Moon, earlier today, she popped into the PHC for a quick chat with those who were around! It started around 4pm Eastern time and she started with a “Hi everyone!” and “What’s going on with you guys? USA Poptropicans getting excited for Thanksgiving break?”

Some people shared their plans for the holiday, to which she responded, “Yay for vacation!!!” Here are a few more fun Q&As that occurred:

idk: Do the Poptropica creators get time off for Thanksgiving/Christmas? There are some jobs that don’t allow it. (Well, unless they gather vacation time earned from working.)
Skinny Moon: We do! Lots of people take extra days off, too. I am taking the whole week off!

idk: It was said somewhere in a Creator’s blog post that the New Poptropica would release “by the end of this year”. Is that still going to happen?
Skinny Moon: I can’t get into specifics, sorry! I really wish I could!

(Hmm… looks like the Creators are no longer positive that New Poptropica will be ready by the time originally planned. Hopefully the wait won’t be too long…)

idk: In your opinion, who is the meme king/queen?
Skinny Moon: Oh, jeez, I don’t know!

(The PHB declares Ultimate iPad Expert our resident Meme King. Of all other Poptropica spheres and female cultural image monarchs, we cannot comment.) 

jester noveenʳᵉᵏᵗ: skinny moon what did you have for lunch today
Skinny Moon: I realllllly need to go grocery shopping so I had boring leftovers from dinner last night. :ill~1:

But the main point of her visit came in the form of an idea she proposed: “So here’s a question. If I launched a contest where you had to record your gameplay in Poptropica (for like 10 seconds), would you do it? Would you know how to do it?” adding, “If you have a Mac you can use Quicktime.” People gave mixed responses, but personally, I think it’s a creative idea to integrate into a contest!

She also asked, “Are you all going to enter the #MyPoptropicaCostume contest?” – implying that yes, you should! You can find out more details about the contest in this post.

Skinny Moon stayed for about 20 minutes, wrapping up with, “Okay, I have to run. Have a great rest of the day everyone!” So, everyone, if you like chatting with Poptropicans and getting surprise visits from a Creator, you should definitely join the PHC! 😉

In other news, it’s time for me to announce the winner for my Dr. Hare toy code giveaway from my Poptropica Package post! The randomly selected winner is MariotropicaX, who said his favorite Store item was the Legendary Swords card, which is a mini-quest that was sadly removed earlier this year.

Mario, be sure to check your email for the prize code. Thanks to everyone who left a comment on this giveaway! 😀 Be sure to check out the #MyPoptropicaCostume contest as well for even more fun.


Keep on popping on, Poptropicans!

  1. Wow, interesting pics! I wish Jess would pop in the PHC when I’m actually online, and not when I’m asleep during 1:00 am. I guess that’s one of the bad things about 70% of Poptropicans living in the U.S.

    And wait, LS went from the store?? I didn’t notice that till now. Shame, it was probably my favourite minigame (with the exception of Shrink Shot). 😦

    1. Well, Jessica herself lives in the US, so it makes sense that she would pop in at a time that works for her. Don’t worry, we’ll recap on the PHB if anything interesting happens. 🙂

      1. Yeah, which was what I meant. 😉 I’d be surprised if you guys didn’t recap interesting. 😉

    1. Hey Vampi-
      I have to delete my email (really long story why) and I will also be deleting the rekt clan server as well which means there will be no more rekt clan. Sry I’m doing this but I think I should now so I don’t worry about what’s going on there. I’ll delete it after u respond. Please respond to this message so ik you’ve read it. (Also I’m sry for doing this via comment PHB staff) Thanks for your hard work tho Vampi! Rly rly appreciated it! 🙂

      1. Well, although that sounds like a good idea and all, I wouldn’t like giving up my ownership 😛 I hope you understand dude. Anyways have a happy thanksgiving! 🙂

What's popping, Poptropicans?
