A sneak peek into the safari

What’s up, Poptropicans? It’s Lucky Joker here with some incredible news!

Another sneak peek for the upcoming island has been released in the movie theater on Home Island for our enjoyment. You heard that right — Poptropica just dropped a thirteen-second video clip of the highly-anticipated zoological adventure, and it’s pretty great! Don’t believe me? See for yourself:

In the snippet, we can see a giraffe (from the previous sneak peek), a jumpy camera crew member, and most notably, a large tree with various markings on it. I wonder if those will have any significance in the island at all. I’m guessing not, but hey, you never know. 😛

(Oh yeah, HUGE detail: if you hover over the video with your cursor, you can see in the upper left hand corner that the video is titled “Reality TV Sneak Peek” — so that pretty much confirms all the speculation about this being a sequel to the Reality TV of nearly a decade ago!)

And over on Instagram, Blue Tooth has been teasing us about how you might just find the upcoming island in alien territory…

Another thing worth mentioning is this silly little clip of a Zomberry dancing in the Game Show Island lounge, also new in the theater. Check it out:

Looks like this guy has had a few too many blueberry smoothies from the Berry Delicious Smoothie Shop, am I right?

So what do you think about all of this? I’m a little shocked (and majorly happy!) at the fact that the creators are giving out sneak peeks again; it just feels a lot like old times.

That’s it for now, folks. Don’t forget to vote in this year’s Poppies Awards before the 24th and make sure to stay tuned for our continuing yearbook series popping in each and every week.

Thank you all for reading and I’ll talk to you guys in the next one. Pop on!

Hola, Poptropicanos! It’s Lucky Joker here, popping in with some news.

First off, seven all-new items have been added into the store! The new inventory consists of four costumes (Boho Chic, Fruity Cutie, Lazy Days, Dangerous Waters) and three other fun extras (Dolphin Follower, Octo-Prank, Coconut Drink). Here’s everything pictured below:


Also, there’s a new advertisement on Home Island for the new Dora movie, Dora and the Lost City of Gold — coming to theaters August 9!

There are two prizes to be collected, and to do so, all you have to do is watch the short video trailer. Afterwards, you’ll receive two Adventurer Outfits (on one card) and a slightly creepy Boots in the Backpack!

Welp, that’s it for now. Thank you all for reading and I’ll talk to you guys in the next one. Pop on!

Poppies 2019: It’s voting time!

Welcome back, Poptropicans, to more Poppies fun! Now we’re getting into the full swing of things as we commence the second round…

The voting round!

Not sure what’s going on? Catch up on what the Poppies are all about!

We’ve read and tallied up all of your nominations and narrowed them down to the most popular for each category.

This round will determine the winners of the 2019 (5th annual) Poppies, so cast your votes before Wednesday, July 24 in our survey!

We’ll be announcing the winners live at our PHC party later this month on Friday, July 26, the PHB’s 11th birthday! We’ll let you know the rest of the party details next week, so stay tuned. For now…

Keep calm and vote on!

Long live the pony

Hello, everyone — it’s Lucky Joker here! We’ve got little ponies and large cats in this update.

Poptropica announced the release of a new pet that I’m sure many of you will love: the pony! You can find it in the Pet Barn right now. Take a look at this adorable artwork by Pop Creator, Blue Tooth, showing the little stallion:

I got one and made it my own by coloring it pink and adding a rainbow unicorn horn on it. I haven’t decided on a name yet, so feel free to leave any suggestions in the comments! 🙂

Unfortunately, the new pony pet is only available to members, so non-members still only have the puppy and the kitten as options. Maybe we’ll get some new pets in the future that will be available to everyone soon!


Moving on to the advertisement, a new video stand can be found on Home Island for Disney’s upcoming live-action feature, The Lion King — which hits theaters July 18.

To get the prize, all you have to do is, well, watch the video. Tada! A Simba Mane & Roar just for you. Are you gonna see the movie?


Well, that’s it for today, folks. New pet, new island — wow, July’s looking to be a good month for Poptropica.

We actually have our own shenanigans going on here on the PHB too — like our annual Poppies event (we’re currently in the Nomination Round!) and our new Poptropica Yearbook series that debuted today. Check them out!

Stay popping, Poptropicans!

The Poppies 2019: Om Nom Nominations

Hey Poptropicans, the pop-arazzi are here… and that means the Poppies!

🏆 What are the Poppies? 🏆

The Poppies are an annual Poptropica community awards event, hosted by Poptropica fans for Poptropica fans. This will be our fifth year celebrating, and as always, we welcome you to participate in the festivities and tell us where you think the spotlight deserves to shine in all things Poptropica.

First, we begin with the nomination round where you get to nominate your favorite picks for certain award categories. This round starts today (Saturday, July 6) and will end next Friday, July 12. It’ll be followed by a voting round, then culminate into a PARTY on the PHB’s birthday (July 26) — more details to come! But first, the om nom nominations…


Part 1: The Nomination Round

Today marks the start of the nomination round. Each award category will be announced below and followed by a brief description.

To keep the nominations a surprise, you’ll be putting your choices in our survey anonymously. However, you’re welcome to leave a comment in support of your choices. Maybe you’ll convince people to pick your faves, too!

This year’s 11 categories (to celebrate 11 years of the PHB!) are…

Poptropica Gameplay Awards

Funniest Character: Whether it’s a random NPC, a villain, or a hero, there have been many instances where a character cracks a joke that makes you chuckle just a bit. Who made you laugh out loud?

Worst Character: Poptropica is full of iconic characters, but not every character was great. Whether they brutally betrayed you or their personality just fell flat, which, in your opinion, was the worst of them all?

Most Underrated Island: We hear about our beloved Astro-Knights, Mythology, and Mystery Train Islands a lot, but is there an island with a great story and adventure that you feel just doesn’t get the attention it deserves? Nominate it!

Most Overrated Island: On the flip side of the above, what are the islands you think get too much praise that weren’t really all that great? Throw in your nominations!

Best Store Costume: Of all the amazing costumes Poptropica has released over the years, which one do you think was the best? There are hundreds to choose from, so make this count!

Cutest Pet: At the beginning of the year, the Pet Barn had its grand opening and we were introduced to five of the cutest critters in Poptropica: the puppy, kitten, bunny, lizard, and goat. And now just recently the pony has made it’s debut! (Note: Because of the limited options, all of them will automatically be nominated.)

Best Sidekick: Throughout our Poptropica adventures, we’ve had our fair share of sidekicks to help us along the way on our quests, Poptropican or not. Who was the most helpful and loyal by your Poptropican’s side?

Community Awards

Popular Poptropican: Many awesome Poptropicans make up our community, whether they’re frequent commenters, fan artists, fan bloggers, or just someone well known in the online Poptropica world. But who should we recognize as this year’s Popular Poptropican?

Best Fan Art of 2019: Many astounding masterpieces have been made throughout the year so far, but which one do you think deserves the title of “best”? We suggest searching for your favorite pieces of fan art in our DeviantArt group and Community Creations posts! (Please only nominate works created/published in 2019.)

Best Fan Video of 2019: Whether they’re personality-fueled playthroughs, helpful walkthroughs, or nostalgic discoveries, the internet has its share of Poptropica videos made by creative people. Which videos stand out to you? (Please only nominate videos published in 2019.)

Best Guest Post of 2019: The PHB staff encourages fans and readers to share their ideas on the blog by guest posting. In 2019, there have been a collection of great guest posts on the PHB from Poptropicans like you! Which ones did you most enjoy?


Once again, the nomination round starts now, so be sure to fill out our survey and let us know who/what you think is deserving of the awards! Please limit your nominations to a max of three per award. Also, you’re not required to nominate for every category, though it is encouraged! 😉

Remember, the voting round starts next Saturday on July 13, and next week’s poll options will be made up of this week’s most popular nominations. So, be sure to check back in a week to cast your votes, but for now…

📝 Make your nominations on our survey! 📝

Keep popping in to keep up with Poppies events throughout this month! 😀

School’s out, member gifts in

What’s up, Poptropicans? It’s Lucky Joker here, and even if out you’re not out of school quite yet, June’s member gifts are here and it’s time for the summer fun to begin (if you’re in the northern hemisphere, that is 😛)!

This month, if you’re a member, a Skater Outfit, Ice Cream Cone, and Water Balloon Prank will all be added to your inventory upon login. Pretty rad. 😎

Over on the Instagram post announcing the new items, Poptropica received a few comments asking about the future state of Poptropica.

One user asked, “Are you shutting down due to Adobe Flash shutting down?…” to which the Creators replied with “Nope, We’ll still be here! Our devs are working on porting to a new platform.” That’s a great relief! I’m sure most of us thought Poptropica Original would be no more in 2020.

The same Poptropican also asked, “…Also are new islands ever going to come?” The Creators responded, “We’ll see! 👀” Could this mean we’ll be finally getting a new island adventure soon? I certainly hope so! It’s been quite a while now, to say the least….


In other news, there’s a new video ad for the upcoming Toy Story 4 movie on Home Island. All you gotta do is hit play, watch the trailer, and voila! — a Forky Follower just for you.

So what do you think of this month’s member items? (I think they’re pretty cool.) How do you feel about new islands coming to Poptropica? I’m excited just thinking about the possibility! I’m sure it’s something we’ve all been waiting for. Also, are you going to see Toy Story 4? Let us know all your thoughts down in the comments section below.

Thank you all for reading and talk to you all in the next one. Pop on!

Under the Sea: Clubhouse Store Update

Hello, everyone! I’m Lucky Joker here presenting the latest clubhouse store update!

The clubhouse shop has gotten a lot of under the sea themed decorations all for your buying pleasure this month. We’ve got everything from a blowfish to an axolotl, and even an underwater shipwreck wallpaper.

Of the 11 new items, 6 are available exclusively for members, but if you’re a non-member there are still 5 fun options to choose from! 🙂

The items from this month’s update combined with last month’s update full of mythical creatures could definitely make for an awesome clubhouse. You might even have a chance at being featured on “Clubhouse of the Week”, so get creating, Poptropicans!

Well, that about sums up this post! Once again, thank you all for reading and I’ll talk to you in the next one. Pop on!
