Hey Poptropicans, it’s Slanted Fish! 🐠 If you’ve been checking the Poptropica Creators’ Blog lately, you may have seen my first guest post shared there this week. And if it’s your first time here, perhaps because of that post: welcome! Here on the PHB, we’re all about Poptropica. 😄
You can see the post for yourself over on the official Pop blog, but it’s basically about creating your own Popsona, or Poptropica persona for your game character. It’s a fun activity that’s been part of the fandom for years, and you can find even more Popsonas from the PHB team here.
Of course, the PHB is a big part of Slanted Fish’s Popsona story, so I had to include it in there as well — and am grateful that the Creators included a link here, to the “Poptropica fan publication known as the Poptropica Help Blog.” Still, the PHB is bigger than just my story — it includes all of you who read it and follow along with us! 📰🏝
Speaking of Pop blogging, don’t miss out on the other fantastic guest posts from this week! Purple Paw (a fellow PHB writer) blogged about what makes Poptropica special to her, while BraveSky waxed poetic about the game’s many adventures. And if you’re feeling inspired, you can also share your musings about Poptropica here on the PHB! ✏
In other news straight from the Creators’ Blog, the Video of the Week series continues with a two-part walkthrough of Timmy Failure Island by Siblings Ahoy! Check out part 1 below and part 2 on the Pop blog:
By the way, the PHB has walkthroughs for every island listed on our Island Help page! Each of our guides comes with video and written walkthroughs, as well as other fun stuff like the lowdown on Quippy’s store items, trivia, album photos from the old days of Pop, and more.
That’s it for this update! Share with us in the comments: What’s your Popsona story? What do you want to read about next on the Creators’ Blog? And any theories as to why Timmy Failure so brazenly walks around without pants??
Be sure to check out the posts below to know what else is happening in the Poptropica fandom, from Island Flash-backs spotlighting the classic islands from the Flash days to free membership giveaways! At the PHB, we’re always busy cooking up ideas inspired by Poptropica. 🌤
🌟 Keep on popping on, Poptropicans! 🌟

I love this! Thanks Slanted Fish of should I say FRIENDLY?
Thanks! My Poptropican’s name is Friendly Fish, but I like to go by Slanted Fish since the name has special meaning to me. 🙂
I think your next post should be that what you love about Poptropica and you can survey the other staff writers too!
That’s a cool idea. Purple Paw’s recent guest post was about what she loves about Poptropica, so be sure to check that out!
Starting with Hamburger Hamburger this guy travelled islands and became from a loose stinky hamburger to a Dangerous Dragon… that’s my name! Completing Time Tangled before it turned to membership was a huge task. That the end and do you like it. Pls do
Interesting 😜 Curious as to how one goes from being a hamburger to a Dangerous Dragon!
Thank you for Replying!
Timmy is bold like that bro ⚡
Congrats on your first guest Post! 😍
Thanks, hope you enjoyed it! There’s more where it came from.
Here’s my popsona:
Young, wide-eyed Icy Crown was born and raised in Survival, so she was very used to the cold! Eventually when she grew up, she decided to escape the cold and traveled to Arabian Nights, and to the Wild West. She still to this day follows back to her roots and enjoys revisiting her homeland! (Even though she at this point knows every inch of the place!) ❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️ She’s thought many times of changing her name, maybe. But she just can’t get over the thought of ditching her icy oasis 💞.
Cool Popsona! (literally too ❄️) I like how the name matches her island identity. She might consider a new nickname for when she’s on the desert islands!
Yes! Thanks for the reply
Wow, what a throwback! Looks like not much has changed. I am still an INFJ-T, plan to be a veterinarian (two more years to go until vet school, hopefully), and enjoy reading and playing video games. I have to say, I wish I had a private island of pets like my Popsona.
Nice! A private island of pets would be pretty cool irl… 🐺
Timmy loves freedom!
Good job slanted fish!
Here’s my popsona from an au!:
Name: Noisy Snowball, but called Snowy for short.
Home Island: None!
Snowy lives in a word where Poptropica is a computer game, and was always a fan of it when it launched, and always wanted to work there, especially after making her own island called Opposites Island. When she graduated from a random university, she applied for a job, and got it! She became one of the best employees because of her skills and creativity. However, one day, people from Mega Fighting Bots.com tried shutting Poptropica down, but she managed to stop them. Thinking that this was over, she noticed one if the villains called “Slash” hiding in alley way. Slash told her that she wanted to do harmless evil things, not the stuff that happened in the headquarters. Snowy helped her get a job, and they worked on Mocktropica island which was inspired by the attack, making them good friends. But their adventures are only just beginning.
(I know Slash is from Mocktropica island, but I changed her for this au a bit.)
