Spring blooms with costumes 🍀

Hey Poptropicans — new lines, same story. Pop in for store switch-ups, fan art features, and the questionable meme of the week!

Over at Adventure Outfitters, both pets and players get to enjoy a new rotation of costumes, in addition to the “green stuff” on the shop floor.

Though the Pop Creators might not be doing much lately (where are you, Baron?) , the fan community is keeping the flame going with lots of creative work recently featured on Pop’s Instagram stories. 🔥 Be sure to click the artists’ names to check out their full posts, including a short story about a Pelican Rock prisoner!

Also on IG, Poptropica welcomed in the spring season with a meme featuring Home Island icon, Amelia. And that’s the tea this week… ☕️

Villainous Fashion: Dr. Hare in Designer 🕶🥕

Poptropica’s been in quite the dry spell these past few months, but every so often, the Pop Creators still throw us a few crumbs of entertainment.

A new meme on Twitter showcases how to mimic Dr. Hare’s style IRL with a collection of refined items, from a hot pink Valentino jumpsuit to… Walmart bunny ears. 🐰 Thanks, Poptropica Fashion Week!

Leave it to Poptropica to dress Dr. Hare in designer…

It’s been a while, but this week Pop finally popped back into the Instagram game with a host of story highlights. Enjoy!

And no, unfortunately so far this little spike in activity hasn’t translated to the game or the official blog, which hasn’t offered any updates in a hot month. Yes, we’re here in the middle of March, still waiting to hear about January’s costume contest winner and the Baron’s disappearance, with the airship last seen in December. All the fancy styles on social media can’t make us forget the missing substance of the game…

Fanfic: Story of Smart Lightning, Part 1/6 ⚡️

Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Young Rider. Enjoy!

Hey everybody! It’s me, Young Rider, and I came up with my own fictional Poptropican, Smart Lightning. Her story will be composed into six parts, and will be featured here on the PHB. Hope you enjoy!

The phone rings. “Hello, it’s Smart Lightning, how can I be of service?”

A cheerful voice answers on the other end. “No need to be so formal! Just me, your fabulous bestie!”

“Oh, sorry, I didn’t know it was you, Brave Star!”

“No problem, I know you make, like, twenty calls a day! But listen, I know it’s storming, but I’m in a bit of a pinch. Can you come over to my place?”

“Ok, see ya in a few!”

Smart Lightning heads out the door, despite the storm raging outdoors. We see her walk down the busy streets of New Tropican.

“Geez, maybe I should have brought an umbrella!”

Lightning strikes a few yards away, and Smart Lightning jumps backwards.

“Ack! I gotta be careful!” 

“Hey! Watch it!” an angry citizen shouts, bumping her away. She falls down into a construction site that has signs warning: Keep out! High Voltage zone!

“Ugh, that hurt. Wait… What’s that?!”

A lightning bolt heads straight for Smart Lightning, giving her no chance to escape. A flash of light appears before it strikes, and Smart Lightning disappears.


Hope you enjoyed this guest post by Young Rider. If you did, you might also enjoy her My Place in Poptropica story or other fanfictions we’ve featured.

The Poptropica Help Blog welcomes interesting Poptropica insights from anyone in the Poptropica community with thoughts to share. Interested in writing for the PHB? We’d love to hear from you!

Green Sights and a Quiet Heist

Hey Poptropicans, pop in for shop drops and gems for mems!

March-ing into St. Patrick’s season, Adventure Outfitters is right on trend with a section of “green stuff” for your clubhouse. 🍀 Also on the shop floor, you’ll find Leprechaun and Jester costumes, as well as a cute lion plush. And in the middle are some cozy fits. Lucky you!

Shhh… members get more! March’s member gifts have stealthily arrived, equipping would-be thieves with a Quiet Heist Grapple Hook, Quiet Heist Boots, and Quiet Heist Outfit featuring a beanie with long hair, sunglasses, puffer jacket, and dark pants. Happy heisting? 🥷

While opening up your menu, you might continue to encounter “Daily Questions.” Besides the pop culture questions seen earlier, we’re now starting to see more general questions, such as this one about winning contests — though we’re still without a place to show our answers.

Meanwhile in meme land, the Pop Creators continue to be fixated on 24 Carrot Island, and in particular its magical drink dispenser. Seems they’re too busy to give us any other kinds of updates these days…
