Spirit, spies, and sketches, oh my!

Good day, everyone! The holiday season is still going strong, and Poptropica has been giving nonstop to its players. We at the PHB have been covering the 12 Days of Member Gifts, but let’s take a break to discuss a special gift that gives all year round: ADVERTISING!!! (yay!🙃)

Sarcasm aside, Poptropica recently gave us three unique ads, each with their own cool prizes to offer! Let’s get started with an ad fitting for the holiday season.

Our first ad is a simple one promoting Netflix’s new Christmas special “Spirit Riding Free: Spirit of Christmas”. Watch the short video to earn the Free Spirit power. To activate this power, equip the apple and press the spacebar to see Spirit leap across the screen!

Our second ad also comes from Netflix, this one promoting their upcoming series “Fast & Furious: Spy Racers”. Walk inside and talk to Tony to enter the big race. This minigame is similar to the game Crash-N-Bash from the Blast-Off Arcade: choose your car and race to the finish line without running into obstacles (running into other cars is fine, though).

If you manage to win the race without totaling your car, you will receive the Cool Car Follower as well as Tony’s Car. The latter prize is especially awesome since you can take it on a sweet ride.

The last new ad of the bunch moves from Netflix to the big screen with “Spies in Disguise”. Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to watch the trailer and play a racing game. After choosing your driver, you need to blast enemy robots by pressing the spacebar and jump over hazards by clicking your mouse (or tapping the screen if you’re on a mobile device).

Successfully completing your mission will reward you with the Pigeon Transformer and the Laser Scan Tuxedo. With these devices, you now have the choice to turn into either a suave pigeon or a savvy spy. Good luck out there, agents!


Over on social media, the most recent “Fan Art Feature” puts the spotlight on Instagram user @goldsberrie, who drew her Pop OC in a Disney-esque art style. It’s definitely a unique entry in this series, and you have to admit that this guy’s hair is amazing! If you would like the chance to have your art featured by Poptropica, post your art to Twitter or Instagram and tag it #poptropica or #poptropicafanart so they can see it.

That’s all for now. Out of these three new ads, which is your favorite? What’s your favorite new ad prize? Share your thoughts in the comments below, and tune in for more Poptropica news.

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!
