🎶 It’s the most POPtastic time of the year! 🎶

What’s up, Poptropicans? It’s Lucky Joker here with exciting news! Let’s pop into it.

This just in from the Poptropica Creators’ Blog… there are soon going to be more ways to connect with friends on Poptropica!

For a feature coming soon to the Blast-Off Arcade, you can see in this sneak peek below a wider array of fun emojis as well as a chat icon, indicating a new text chat feature! It’s unclear at this point whether we’ll get to type out our messages or if we’ll at least be able choose from a larger amount of chat options, like before.

A new profile page is showcased in another sneak peek—and it’s completely different from the current one we’re accustomed to! This one is a lot more social media inspired, I’d say. It’s got likes, friends, a display of photos from the Photo Booth, and more. I wonder what the sticker wall is all about… 🤔

I personally think the new profile page looks really cool! As much as I’ll miss the old one, I can definitely say I’m looking forward to this version being put into the game. Both of these updates will be effective sometime this month, according to the Pop Creators.


Next up, we have some new holiday stickers in the Poptropica Stickers app! There are 14 new stickers and they’re all so cute! Check them out:

This app is only for iMessage for the time being. You can find the app in the App Store on any iOS device.


And lastly, you might’ve noticed a blank medallion for a Clubhouse Island (just like the Lego Island one from a few months ago). Thanks to Popular Noodle for the tip!

Though we’re not entirely sure why it’s here, my guess is that it’s related to the “clubhouse link” button on the new profile page sneak peek from earlier. Seems like Pop is going to be introducing personal clubhouses to Poptropica Original—probably accessed through the closed tree house door on Home Island. Pretty neat, huh?

And that’s it for today! I appreciate Poptropica listening to their fans on social media and adding all of these cool updates. Poptropica, if you’d take one more suggestion… I’d really really like a new island in 2019, or maybe even a “Create Your Dream Island” contest if you guys are running short of ideas over at Pop HQ. 😉

Welp, you’ve heard all of my opinions, but what do you think of all these upcoming features? What other stuff would you like to see in Poptropica?

Thanks for reading as always, and I’ll talk to you all in the next one. Pop on!

    I’m not really liking the new friends board. It feels like they’re pandering to ‘modern social media’ audience. I hope I explained that well. Nevertheless, it’s cool that the house feature is being brought to Poptropica Original; a mechanic that in my opinion, should’ve been in Original in the first place. Nice to see the website, Poptropica.com, (and this blog as well), still thriving, despite the flash shutdown looming over us.

    Awesome! I’m liking all these new updates! I do want to point out that it seems the clubhouse is probably going to act as some sort of multiverse thing (Since there is a link to your clubhouse over at the profile page); If not, then my other theory is that it’s going to act as a way for other players to check out your unique clubhouse (it has been said before, but maybe you can customize it?).

    Also, I’m not sure if it’s going to be on the photo board as well, but it looks like the photos obtained from completing islands are missing…
