Savage member gifts and a new poppin’ home screen

Hello there, Poptropicans! How’ve you been? It’s Lucky Joker here with the member gift bunch for February and a new Poptropica home screen as well.

January’s over, and we’re on to the second month of the year, which means new stuff! If you purchase or have a membership anytime within the month, you’ll acquire these three exclusive items: Blue Storm Sword, Blue Strom Knight, and Blue Storm Viking.

Pretty cool gifts this time around, if you ask me. Okay, moving on…


As of today, Poptropica updated the main picture on their front page.

To my knowledge, the graphic to grace the home screen has always been a still image, but this time it’s an animated one. I personally love it! All of the characters and islands capture Poptropica’s essence so well — it’s amazing!

So, what do you think of these new things? It’s not much, but I do appreciate even the smallest of updates these days. It’s reassuring knowing the game is still cared for, to some extent.

Thank you for reading as always. Talk to you guys in the next one… pop on!

God save the king

Hello, everybody, it’s Lucky Joker here! Today I’ll be guiding you through yet another advertisement that can be found on Home Island.

The featured ad this time around promotes the newly released Disney Channel comedy horror series, The Owl House — which is about a teenage girl who stumbles into a fantasy world and pursues her dream of becoming a witch. I’ve heard the reviews are great, so you might want to check it out. I think I’ll give it a whirl myself!

Okay, anyway, head inside and talk to Eda. She’ll give you her staff, and you’ll be redirected to the mini game. You needn’t worry, it’s pretty easy.

The mission is to save King. To do that, owl you got to do is move your mouse from left to right, dodging the dive bombing demon attacks without losing all your lives. You have 5 of them, so be careful!

Once you manage to successfully keep King from being stolen, you’ll receive your very own King Friend Follower and Flying Staff. Yes, you can actually fly on it! Pretty neat, huh?

Well folks, that’s all for today. Don’t forget to tune in to new episodes of The Owl House every Friday on Disney Channel and to check up on the PHB for fun posts coming soon.

As always, thank you for reading and I’ll talk to you in the next one. Pop on!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Warmest greetings, Poptropicans. It’s Lucky Joker here with the second wave of members gifts as part of Poptropica’s 12 Days of Member Gifts event.

The three most recent items members have received are a Snow Car, a Santa Beard, and a Unicorn Horn (which looks similar to a couple of unicorn horns we’ve gotten in the past, but still cool nonetheless).

By the way, if you purchase a membership anytime within the month, you’ll get all 12 of the exclusive items. How wonderful!


Also, I’m here to show you the new Home Island makeover! It’s not as decorated as I would’ve hoped for December, but it’s still pretty nice. I quite like the snowfall and the grab-a-snowball igloo station.

But yeah, other than that, it’s not much… just wintery piles of snow, the occasional baby penguin, and even a few remaining fall leaves.

That’s it for now it folks! What do you think of the new Home Island and the member gifts we’ve gotten so far?

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

Not Trolling: It's 12 Days of Member Gifts!

Seasons’ greetings, Poptropicans! It’s Lucky Joker here, and guess what?

It’s that time of year again. 12 Days of Member Gifts is back! This year, if you’re a member, you’ll receive one gift each day, every day, for the first twelve days of December.

The first gift arrived yesterday and it was an interesting hairdo, Ice Hair — but when you login today, you’ll receive a super cute Snow Baby Toy.

And according to the Pop Creators, we have even better gifts to look forward to. Perhaps consider asking for a Poptropica membership for Christmas/the holiday season this year! 🙂


In other news, an ad for the all-new season of Netflix’s Trolls: The Beat Goes On! can be found on various islands. All you’ve got to do to win yourself a Poppy Follower is watch the short video. Woohoo!

That’s all there is for today, folks. Thanks for reading, and I’ll talk to you all in the next one… pop on!

It’s whimsical wizardry on Home Island and in the Pop Store! ✨

Salutations, Poptropicans! It’s Lucky Joker here and today I bring some exciting new updates!

First, Home Island has received its routine seasonal makeover — continuing with the night theme of October, but a bit more toned down this time.

There’s a darker, almost gloomier ambience with the overcast sky, however, with the bright, colorful leaves and wizarding tidbits all around to contrast, everything just balances out evenly. I really like it — especially the free wands booth (and yes, he will give you a free wand)!


The store has received an update for this month too! A few new costumes that fall in with the whole wizard theme have been added along with a multitude of returning classics. Here is the current stock below:

Costumes

New costumes: Student Wizard, Apprentice Wizard, Dark Wizard (members only), Wicked Wizard

Followers/Powers/Pranks

New tricks: Magic Cloud Rider, Levitation Spell, Spark Shower

Welp, that’s it for now. What do you think of the wizarding world of Home Island and store items?

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

Pop 5: Scariest costumes/items

Ghostly greetings, Poptropicans! 👻 It’s Lucky Joker creeping in with a fang-tastic little treat for you all. Today, I’ll be presenting the top 5 scariest costumes/items in Poptropica (based on my personal opinion) and explaining why. Grab your teddy bear and hug it tight because it’s about to get frightening… mwahaha! Let’s get into it!

#5: Skull Pirate

Aarrr! Coming in at the number five spot is the bone-chilling, spine-tingling Skull Pirate costume!

In widespread culture, pirates are known to be barbaric, fearsome, and menacing criminals who will stop at no cost to obtain valuable items or properties – so they’re already pretty scary as it is. Remove all flesh from the face and they become even scarier. Seeing a bare skull as opposed to the normal Poptropican face we’re used to is quite unsettling. Shiver me timbers!

#4: Cyclops

Moving on to number four… we have the Cyclops costume!

This is probably one of the freakiest costumes in the game, period. Just look at it! That gigantic bloodshot eye, the pointy fangs, the unusual green skin – this thing is something I’d for sure never want to run into. And that large wooden club in his clutches doesn’t help either.

I believe this costume has the potential to be in the top 3 (or even number one!) on this list. However, the sluggish face expression takes a away from the scare factor just a bit, so at number four it will stay.

#3: Creepy Puppet

Yikes! Take a look at the Creepy Puppet – the number three spot!

Have you ever watched Dead Silence, Child’s Play, or Triloquist? Well this is Poptropica’s resident murderous doll, and it’s just as terrifyingly eerie. The thought of a toy coming to life – especially one with such a deranged and jarring grin – I’m sure makes everyone’s blood run cold.

#2: Zombify/Pale Zombie

Hide your brains! Back from the dead in second place are these zombified monstrosities! Get ready for an apocalypse…

Zombies are one of the most mainstream monsters in pop culture today, so it makes sense that they’ve made their way into the online world to begin invading Poptropica. The horrifying faces on these guys can send anyone running way in the opposite direction. Both green and pale versions are equally as shriek inducing and definitely deserve this high placement on the list. I’d say they’re number one material if it weren’t for…

*BEEP* We interrupt this message to showcase a few honorable mentions before I reveal my top pick.

Honorable Mentions:

…And now, for the scariest costume in all of Poptropica…

#1: Birthday Candle

The 11th Birthday Candle! Aaah! What is it?! Haha, I’m kidding… that was just a Halloween prank. They don’t call me Lucky Joker for no reason. 😉 Onto the real number one…

#1: Bog Monster

…the Bog Monster!

Okay, this costume is petrifying in virtually every conceivable way, my goodness. Poptropica really tried scaring kids with this one. The slimy, swampy texture, wide grimace, and eyes that look like they’re gonna pop out and land on your lap at any second just make me want to retch. I mean, this costume is straight up nightmare fuel, and that’s why it’s here at number one!


So, what did you think of my list? Anything I missed? I’d love to hear your opinions so leave them down in the comments if you dare. I hope you enjoyed. Pop on and stay spooky! 🦇

A berry bitsy sneak peek…👀

Hey, Poptropicans, it’s LJ again! No need to feel blue, because I’ve got a sneak peek for you! Yep, that’s right — a small but exciting peek into Poptropica’s latest project: the return of Zomberry Island.

This just in a screenshot of what appears to be a new minigame for the  soon-to-be-reborn island was posted to Poptropica’s Instagram, @poptropicacreators. Take a look!

Seriously, every time we get a new sneak peek for an upcoming island release (or in this case, re-release), I’m always excited. Zomberry was never my favorite island or anything, but I’ve always enjoyed it — and this looks like it’s going to be a decently fun game. I particularly like this 8-bit, retro style too.

Poptropica says to keep our eyes out for more artwork “sooooon” and that’s definitely what I’ll be doing!

What other types of sneak peeks would you like to see? What are your expectations for the upcoming Zomberry Island coming back from the undead? Leave your comments below, and stay tuned to the PHB as our Halloween Costume Contest and Community Creations for this month continue.

Thank you for reading as always. Talk to you guys in the next one… pop on!
