About the PHB

phb blimp logo2

What’s popping? We’re the Poptropica Help Blog, or the PHB for short. This corner of the web was founded by Slanted Fish on July 26, 2008 and has been serving as a popular Poptropica fansite for over 10 years.

Here at the PHB, our goal is to enhance your Poptropica experience by sharing game tips, secrets, news, walkthroughs, tools, and more. You’ll also find a fun-loving community in the blog comments, our Discord chat server, DeviantArt fan art group, and more.

The PHB is proud to be an Official VIP fansite of Poptropica. Note that we are not Poptropica, but we are players (like you!) who are dedicated to serving this community. Welcome to the PHB, the top stop for all things Pop!

Meet the team

The PHB team is the crew behind the blog that brings you the latest Pop news and more. We are ordinary players, not Poptropica Creators (though we wish we were). We’re teens and young adults, and you can sometimes find us on the PHC, the PHB’s Discord chat server. Thanks for popping by!

    1. Hi Iโ€™m Sisi and slanted fish may already know me but for people who donโ€™t, Iโ€™m obsessed with poptropica even tho I donโ€™t play it much. I like drawing and reading poptropica blogs. Iโ€™m 10 and was born in 2011. I am happy that even tho Iโ€™m young I can post comments on these blogs. And I live in Virginia

  3. I know a few of you are over 13 but is it okay to play when your 13? Cuz im totally not 13 or anything with a poptropica addiction ๐Ÿ˜‰

      1. Iโ€™m part Asian and my mom emigrated south korea when she was little. Way before she married my dad and had my brother, two sisters and me. I really want to visit South Korea and one time me and my family were going to fly to there in 2020 but our trip was cancelled. ( dang you coronavirus)

      1. Btw I forgot I can speak some mandarin and Korean and also Japanese. Xie Xie, gamsa haeyo and Arigato for reading dis

  4. I’m on the poptropica app. My little brother has made 4 characters that I don’t want how do I delete them?!?!?!?!

  5. Hi all! Now I just โค Dolphins, Peacocks, Cats, Deer, Rabbits, etc. So what do you ppl love? Oh, I forgot to include fishes and whales in the list…;)
    Stylish sensations,
    Lucky bird.

  6. Joey, I need you to please let me comment on your blog and I will reason with you on the definition of spamming and trolling so you’ll understand better. I know what you want, you don’t want to be called a spammer or a troll, so let me give you some advice.

    I’m trying to deal with him, Fishy, sorry about this.

    1. Yes, I know that I use bad words in my Tumblr posts. But still, I want you to unblock me on Tumblr so we will speak privately regarding this issue, and if you don’t know how to unblock, you can let me comment on your blog and I’ll show you how to unblock.

  7. Excuse me? Those weren’t “bad words.” About that statement about what you made about “spamming” and “trolling” being bad words, it doesn’t work like that when it comes to the Internet. And if you do know the definition of spamming and trolling, you can unblock me on Tumblr and we can speak privately.

    1. Troll means: “make a deliberately offensive or provocative online post with the aim of upsetting someone or eliciting an angry response from them.” Spam means: “send the same message indiscriminately to (large numbers of recipients) on the Internet.”

  8. Yes. That’s the definition I was going to say to you. And I bet it’s why people called you a troll in the PHC the other day in response to your rude behavior towards me; calling me a “troll”, telling people that I swore when I was going to say something to you, and other stuff which got you kicked and banned. If you want to be unbanned from the chat you need to contact the PHB and apologize sincerely, saying you will never do this again.

  9. Is Sporty Boa and still an author? There hasnโ€™t post from Sporty boa in a year, thatโ€™s the reason Iโ€™m asking.

What's popping, Poptropicans?
