Hey Poptropicans, it’s Slanted Fish with a few bits of news, most relating to the new Home Island in one way or another. Let’s pop in and see!
First, the countlessly redesigned Home Island has now rolled out its latest update to all players, so you can find it the next time you log in.
In case you missed it, check out our Home Island Guide for the lowdown on the side-quest featuring Xavier the self-statue-stealer!
There’s something else new to this Home update, though: carts on the side. Left of the new store building, you’ll find either a pet cart (which takes you to the pet shop interface) or Herc’s snack truck manned by Aeolus, keeper of the winds, who apparently owes Zeus money. Accepting the god’s offer of a bite will take you to Mythology Island.
You’ve seen Adventure Outfitters, the rebranded store building, but it’s not just about the treasure chest aesthetic on the outside. It’s going to get a shiny new interior too! Check out the sneak peeks from the Creators’ Blog (peep the ice skull from the old Pathfinders tribe common room, as well as displays of the reversible octopus and more):
Plus, it’s the start of another week, which means another store rotation! In addition to stuff featured last week, we have a new Prom Princess costume and several more suit-ups. The Creators also really emphasized that tons of stuff is available for non-members this time (11 out of 14 costumes!), which is quite the improvement from before.
Last but not least, this past Monday, March 8 was International Women’s Day! To celebrate, the Pop Creators posted a tribute to our girl Amelia, whom you might know from Home Island (one of the constants in all its remodels). She’s based on a real life icon: Amelia Earhart, the first female to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean back in 1932.
We have Amelia be the first person everyone meets in Poptropica because she was a true adventurer! She was smart, capable, brave, and willing to try things no one had ever done before.Poptropica Creators’ Blog (read more)
Of course, Amelia is far from the only woman worth celebrating in Poptropica! Here are a few pieces of fan art from the community of various iconic, female-identifying Poptropicans:
Considering the world’s male-dominated past (and sometimes present), it’s especially important to highlight the achievements and capabilities of women. For all the girls out there, you’re capable of greatness! Let us all take notice, regardless of our gender. 💃🏽💪
That’s it for this post. Share your thoughts in the comments and on the PHC. As always, keep on popping on!

the new home island shop doesnt show the inside of it can u fix this problem for me along with the student wizard card collecting problem to cause i dont hv the student wizard card when it was first added ok thnx u
The store interior isn’t here yet—these are just sneak peeks.
And the student wizard card is listed among the item ID list from our Glitching page under Card Collector — remember, you can make use of Ctrl + F to help find specific things on a webpage.
The prom princess is cute! And the art is fabulous! Very good Purple and ray-of-flight
Gotta say, I do like the updated background/sky for home island. Much more eye-catching.
The animations are pretty cool! But the background is rather bright on the eyes.
Quality comment right here 😂👏
hey slanted did u fix the card collector problem with the student wizard card it didnt show in my costume items
I don’t program or manage Card Collector. What you see is what you get.
Are the seasons going to change on the new Home? Because I don’t see any snow. I like thee old version a lot better, so I was wondering how many similarities there will be.
Also where’s the Poptropica logo on the blimp! I really thought that even through conversion, Poptropica’s blimp wouldn’t ever change, even though they had to get rid of the motor that was on the original blimp.
Good eye on the blimp — the Poptropica logo is indeed gone! But to be fair, the blimp is pretty iconic on its own and also appears without the logo on the map.
Also, with the Creators’ great affinity for giving Home Island makeovers, it’s definitely possible we’ll continue to see seasonal changes. But we’ll have to see!
I think there isn’t any snow bcs summer is arriving….the store items are also changing to summer themed…the customizer and the colorizer with the pet barn should be brought back!
cool! This update is something I am really looking forward to!
When is Poptropica Airways coming out? Does anyone know?
Nbdy knows the news about the airways…..
The creators did an interview with Invisible Ring explaining what happened to Airways: https://blog.poptropica.com/2021/02/guest-post-pop-creators-interview-with.html
Thanks! I did read that already, but the post is helpful!
