Howdy Poptropicans! It’s LJ here with a couple news and updates.
So Poptropica is on TikTok now (@poptropicacreator)… interesting. I’m wondering what they’re going to share other than what we already see on Instagram or the Creators’ Blog. Perhaps some nostalgic content? They announced their arrival to TikTok on their Instagram story with a slideshow of scenes from old islands:
Update: This video later became their first TikTok post, including a slightly chipper voice reading out the text shown on-screen. (Thanks to paris for the news!) The text reads: “If you know, you know. 2000’s kids definitely remember. Poptropica is still putting out new islands!!”
Next, another week has passed which means there a few new items on sale at Adventure Outfitters including a couple of classic costumes like the Rock Star and Little Demon. You can see the newly available items indicated below:
In more exciting news, Fairytale Island is practically here! The highly anticipated Dream Island contest winner launches for all players tomorrow (April 22)! I hope the creators will bring back the World of Champions map. I really liked that feature because it was cool to see where you ranked in terms of how fast you were able to beat the quest.
In spirit of the new island, Poptropica has yet again featured another set of amazing entries for the Fairytale Fan Art Challenge over on their Instagram page — by various artists (some of whom we’ve featured here on the blog as part of our Pop Fan Artist Spotlight series). You can check out some more of the awesome submissions by viewing their Fan Challenges story highlight on IG.
Don’t forget that time is almost up to submit your art for the contest. The deadline is tonight at 8PM PST (9 hours from now), so hurry it up if you want a chance to win those credits!
Thanks for reading as always and I’ll talk to you in the next one. Pop on!
