It’s time for the 2019 PHB Readers’ Survey!

How’s it going, Poptropicans? It’s Lucky Joker here, and this year, we’ll be continuing the tradition of connecting with our readers with our annual PHB Readers’ Survey!

This year’s survey will contain questions similar to those from previous years to help us see the changes that have transpired in our reader base over the year.

There are 14 questions in this year’s survey, all pertaining to your experience with Poptropica and its online community. Your identity is kept anonymous, unless you choose to share it in the comment box at the end.

The survey is up now and will remain open for three whole weeks (till Saturday, April 6) so be sure to fill out before then! We’d really appreciate it. We want to better serve YOU!

The results will be posted here on the blog probably sometime in April as well (no exact date is definite yet), so stay tuned for that! Now go take that survey! You can click the button banner at the top of this post to get started. 😉

Shops poppin’ up: pet accessories and store accessibility

How are you, Poptropicans? It’s Lucky Joker here with TWO incredible updates! Let’s pop right on into it.

Firstly, pet accessories are here! There’s an array of cute and funny accessories for your pet(s) in the all-new pet store. You can access the pet store by going into the Pet Barn and clicking the green credit icon at the bottom left-hand corner of your screen.

The items are divided into four categories as seen below — head, face, body, and eyes. Here is the current stock:

Also, Poptropica recently brought us a new store format so that it lasts past the pulling of the plug for Flash in 2020. Like the pet one, there are also categories to divide the items — costumes, followers, powers, pranks, and miscellaneous.

I’m totally a fan of this new design, but there are a few small issues I take with the update in general. One, items cost even with membership — unlike before, when they were free. (I guess that wheel update from last month is going to be coming in handy after all.) Two, a lot of items are members only. Like, A LOT. More than half as a matter of fact. I think both members and non-members deserve a little better.

To close out this post on a positive note, Poptropica teased at the possibility of a couple of islands coming our way in their latest post. I’m super excited about it!

So what do you guys think of all of this? Likes, dislikes, ideas — whatever it is, leave it down in the comments below! Talk to you guys later, thanks for reading.

Got a membership? You’re in luck. If you don’t? It’s your monthly pet peeve…

What’s up, member-tropicans? It’s Lucky Joker here along with the excusive member gifts for March! (And even if you’re not a member, at least check out the sneak peek to come…)

If you’re an active member or purchase a membership anytime throughout the month, these items will automatically be added to your inventory:

  • Leprechaun Follower
  • Green Power
  • Pie Day Pie Toss

I love that the items resemble the festivities this month. (It would’ve been cool to see a green and purple jester hat and mask for Mardi Gras too!) The Green Power and Pie Day would make great sabotages in multiverse parties, hehe.


In other news, Poptropica just released a sneak peek on Instagram of some accessories for pets that are coming soon! Take a look:

They’re really cute, but unfortunately—from what I can tell—most of the stock will be member exclusive. But hey, you never know, right?


And one more thing: Poptropica has a new screen for when players need to activate Flash in order to play Poptropica, featuring the likes of Shark Boy and other Poptropicans (and even a pet chameleon) surrounding him!

So, what do you think of these member gifts? How about the upcoming pet stuff or the new Flash screen? Sound off in the comments!

Thanks for reading as always, I’ll talk to you all soon…pop on!

A super Island makeover for Spring!

What’s up, Poptropicans? It’s Lucky Joker here along with a new, revamped Home Island and an advertisement!

Upon logging in, you’ll notice the entire island has been made over for spring with green grass, brightly colored bushes, and flowers pretty much everywhere you look.

It’s actually really pretty! Something tells me this is going to be a seasonal thing.


Anyway, next we have a video advertisement for Cartoon Network’s “DC Super Hero Girls” show.

All you gotta do is watch the short ad and you’ll earn two costumes – Batgirl and Wonder Woman.

Welp, those are the couple of updates we have for now. I’ll be sure to keep you posted with more news to come, so stay tuned. Thanks for reading as always, talk to you soon. Pop on!

Wonderful Valentine’s Vêtements!

How ya doin, Poptropicans? It’s Lucky Joker here, and today I bring you the latest cards and costumes added to the Poptropica store for February, and more! Let’s pop into it!

Unlike last month’s new items, most of this month’s new, Valentine-themed stock is available to all players — not just for members. Please note, this is not a full a store update, so the previous stock is still here. The new additions to the store are:

Gold Cards

  • Garlic Breath
  • Love Potion (members only)
  • Bouquet of Roses
  • Heart Balloon
  • Cupid Follower (members only)
  • Box of Chocolates (members only)

Costumes

  • Little Demon (Boys)
  • Little Demon (Girls)
  • Big Hearted

Also, Poptropica is giving members a new benefit. If you’re a member, you can count on getting double the amount of credits on the Wheel of Loot from now on.

I find this update a bit odd and useless since, as a member, the amount of credits I have doesn’t affect my gameplay whatsoever. Everything in the store is free for me, so… can I like, donate credits to friends? (New idea Poptropica, get on it 😉 )


And finally, a new ad for Paramount Picture’s upcoming movie, Wonder Park, has surfaced and can be accessed via the island map. Just enter and click on June to start up the game.

It’s a simple click and dodge kind of game — we’ve seen it before. All you have to do is click your mouse to jump and dodge the “chimpanzombies” and other obstacles in your track. (Tip: continuously click your mouse as you would if you were playing Boulder Push on Reality TV Island to stay atop the entire time.)

Simple, right? Once you finish the game, you’ll win a Boomer Follower and a cool Roller Coaster Cart!

Well, that’s it for now! What do you think of this new stuff? It’s not much, but at least it’s something. Thanks for reading, and I’ll talk to you all in the next one… pop on!

Sweet gifts with Kim-POP-pible and Fruity Pebbles

Hey again, Poptropicans! It’s Lucky Joker here with the sweet member gifts of February.

If you’re a member, you will receive these five festive items upon logging in: Valentino Outfit, Heartbreaker, Crushing Outfit, Sweet Heart, and Candy Storm. According to the Creators, these gifts “will never be released again,” so get yours while you can.

How lovely. Remember, if you buy a membership any time within the month, you will receive all five of these gifts!


In other news, there are two ads currently pestering Poptropica with four total prizes to be earned. Let’s check them out!

The first one advertises the upcoming Kim Possible Disney channel movie, which premieres on the channel on February 15. To get the goods, all you have to do is watch the short video trailer. What you’ll win includes a cool grappling hook (which functions similarly to the grappling bow tie in Spy Island) and quite possibly the strangest follower I’ve ever seen — a Rufus follower.

The second one advertises America’s fruitiest cereal, Fruity Pebbles; this ad is also just a video. After you watch the ad, you’ll get a Cereal Guitar (I remember making one of these when I was little!) and a neat Robot helmet. Yabba Dabba Doo!

That about covers it for today! What do you think about this month’s member gifts? My favorite is definitely the candy storm power. After all, they’re not going to be available in real life this year… RIP.

Thanks for reading as always, and I’ll talk to in the next one… pop on!

Somebunny made some printable Pop valentines 💕

Hello, Poptropicans — it’s Lucky Joker here! Valentine’s Day is coming up on Thursday, and it looks like Poptropica has taken notice.

You can celebrate by printing out these 6 adorable Poptropica valentines. To print, right-click below to save the image to your computer, and then go to print the file.

They’re the perfect gift to give to your friends or that special someone on this lovely occasion.

Also, be sure to update your Poptropica Stickers app to see the 6 new Valentine-themed stickers that have been added.

You can download the stickers app in the App Store of you don’t have it yet. (By the way, will the app ever be available for Android, Creators?)

I wonder if Poptropica’s got anything else planned for Valentine’s Day this year. They did however mention that there will be “new updates coming out for pets later this month.” (Though they never actually announced the arrival of pets on the Creators’ Blog…)

Thanks for reading as always, and I’ll talk to you in the next one.
