Member Gifts

Bear with the Snowflakes, my Reindeer ❄️🦌

Hey Poptropicans! As we enter into the new week, December’s 12 Days of Member Giftswhich began with the Fox Outfit — continue rolling on. Let’s pop open this advent calendar and see what awaits us…

Day 2 continued the fuzzy friend trend with a Bear Hoodie designed by Got School, while Days 3 and 4 (first announced on Instagram) brought along a kawaii Snowflake Follower by Scary Sword and Reindeer Onesie by Silver Fox respectively. (Thanks to Dizzy Feather for the tip!)

Today, on the fifth day of gift-mas, Poptropica gives to its members a Sleigh you can carry on your waist, designed by Shiny Flyer.

To get these items, you’ll need to be a member and check your inventory. If you aren’t one, you can try your luck in the PHB’s Free Membership Giveaways. Or, if your design from the Holly Jolly Holiday Design Contest gets chosen, you’ll win your item regardless of membership status.

We’re almost halfway through the gift giving! Stay tuned over the next several days as we continue to unwrap these prezzies, and fingers crossed for more holiday celebrations in-game this season.

Happy Grapple-Pap! 💝

Welcoming Winter with Fox Fits and Hare Brains 🦊❄️

Hey Poptropicans! Blink and it’s December — the holiday season is upon us, and with it comes a plethora of gifts!

The 12 Days of Member Gifts annual tradition has kicked off, this year with items imagined by players via November’s Holly Jolly Holiday Design Contest. We begin with a flair for the furry: a Fox Outfit designed by Perfect Heart, or Joey, as some in the Pop community may know him.

Stay tuned over the next couple of weeks as more prizes drop into members’ inventories! If you haven’t had the taste of the bougie Pop life yet, why not try your luck in the PHB’s Free Membership Giveaways?


Fret not, non-members… Amelia’s got you for holiday goodies too. Pop over to Adventure Outfitters and you’ll find tons of winter wonders and Christmas cheer on the shop floor, including a little baby penguin! 🐧


Guest writer Invisible Ring has returned to the Pop Creators’ Blog to bring us a throwback to an old project of Poptropica’s — the Dr. Hare LEGO set. Though the campaign did not succeed to make the Rabbot lair into a real toy, it did bring us a lot of fun Dr. Hare-themed items along the way. Still, Ring readily admits, all the “hare-brained” talk is really just a way to keep pushing her Poptropica fan movie, “Battle Morale.”


Last but not least, enjoy the latest fan art features from Pop’s Instagram stories — including a royal sighting also seen in our latest Community Creations. By the way, our new art theme is Pop’s winter celebration, Grapple-Pap — just in time for all this holiday spirit! 💝

Clubhouse

Castle Clubhouse Tour: Dizzy Feather 🏰

Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Dizzy FeatherEnjoy!

Hello everyone, Dizzy Feather here and today I’ll be giving you a tour of the castle room in my clubhouse. Welcome! Let me just pull this lever down and here we are.

Follow me to the left, where we have the armor of the great warrior Steve, and his original sword and shield below it. Moving on, we have a handcrafted stained glass window, and an ice cream sundae. An ice cream sundae? That’s not supposed to be here! Sorry, whoever was eating this, but it can’t be in here.

Anyway, if you look over there, you’ll see the castle ghost, rumored to live in Steve’s armor, when he’s not looking for people on a clubhouse tour. Wait! Come back! It was a joke, the ghost isn’t real! It’s just a plastic one hanging on the wall! Bad joke, sorry. 

Anyway, onwards and upwards, literally. Just right above the room with the fake ghost is an old artifact a group of knights returned with long ago. The knights refused to tell where it was from, but it was recently discovered that it’s almost exactly like something from the underground caves of Goofball Island.

On the chandelier, you’ll find the throne room — every castle has got to have one. Yes, that is a hammock below me. This position is exhausting, though; I need a break every now and then.

Over to the left of the chandelier is a bedroom. This is the one I sleep in the most when I spend the night in the castle room. The yarn should be in the basket, but I must have forgotten to put it away.

Right across is yet another bedroom! The bed in this one has a few more blankets than the other one, and there are a few balls piled up in here. You can play with them, just please be careful.  

Let’s head down. The fireplace is normally lit, but it’s way too warm of a day to light it today. The skull is actually made of gold, for the record. 

Finally, we have a cozy corner with a couch and a mermaid statue. The torch is just for decoration — after all, it’s the 21st century, we have electric lights now. Anyway, the painting above us was donated, because of the rumor that this place is haunted.

You’ll have to pull the lever to exit, hence the door sign. Hope you—

—oh, almost forgot about the attic! Trust me, it’s worth the extra time for this visit. Let’s see here: we’ve got a lamp, a fake shark, some figurines, some Egyptian artifacts, a Dr. Hare paper weight on a stack of maps, and a unicorn plushie that should be in my normal clubhouse.

Well, that’s it for now. I’ll be back with another room of my clubhouse before you know it!

Sad Blues with Ad Clues 🌀🐾

Hey Poptropicans, pop in for a big blue ad and little sketches! 🌀🖌

A new ad is popping up in the ad spaces between scenes, though not (yet?) on Home Island. Tap into the movie poster for “Blue’s Big City Adventure” — no ad building design this time — to enter a bright city park. Then click on Blue, the dog, to start a game of hide-and-seek.

Run around the park in search of the five items, and for your efforts, you’ll win a Blue Rainbow Follower and Blue Paw Prints. Enjoy! And if you’re interested, this live-action/animated movie based on the show Blue’s Clues is now streaming on Paramount+. 🐶


Speaking of ad spaces between scenes, the one from Amelia’s mini-quest has been popping up outside of visits to Adventure Outfitters. Now, you might also encounter this extra scene while heading off on your blimp to get to the map! Poptropica sure knows how to squeeze in their ad spots… and we’re stuck walking through them. 🙃


Rounding off this update, enjoy the latest fan art features from Poptropica’s Instagram stories full of villain vibes! 💥
