Poptropica DIY Paper Crafts โœ‚๏ธโœจ

Want a cool IRL Pop prop but can’t splurge on a plushie? ๐Ÿ˜œ Over the years, Poptropica has released a handful of templates for DIY paper crafts, and we’ve gathered them all for you right here!

You can make your own Rabbot and Dr. Hare from 24 Carrot, the Neon Wiener spaceship from Galactic Hot Dogs, the Henchbot from PoptropiCon, and even the Svadilfari hammer from Realms. Download and print them out by clicking on the hyperlinked text below:

If you don’t have a printer, you can try your school or local library for one, or ask a trusted friend or adult to help you print them at their home or office. Once you’ve got the printed sheet, just follow the instructions on them to cut the shapes with scissors โœ‚๏ธ, fold and glue where indicated ๐Ÿ“„, and have a bit of patience so they turn out nicely.

Check out some of the finished products below from the Pop Creators! They’re great as shelf decorations. โœจ Try to collect them all!

You can also find these paper crafts under the Art tab on the PHB, or under the island extras on their corresponding guide pages.

Enjoy the process of creating, and have fun with your new paper pal! ๐Ÿคฉ

Pop 5: Most Underrated Islands

Hey Poptropicans, this is aย guest postย by Silver Shell.ย Enjoy!

Hey Poptropicans! It’s Silver Shell again with a new Pop 5 post.

You’ve heard of Pop 5: Underrated Characters. You’ve seen Pop 5: What would happen if there were no Villains. But now it’s time for a Pop 5 of Most Underrated Islands โ€” a top 5 list of amazing islands that don’t get the attention they deserve.

#5: Wild West Island

I love this island, but it’s not super popular among the majority of the fandom. I think everyone enjoyed riding Elmer, playing Slap Jack, and herding cattle, but like most of the islands on this list, this adventure was overshadowed by the longer, more challenging islands.

#4: SOS Island

When Old Poptropica was brought back for a short while in 2020, SOS Island was the first classic I played, and I loved it. I liked how although you didn’t interact with NPCs all that much, there were a lot of little mini-games, each revealing a little part of what really happened after you complete them. I loved the twist ending as well.

#3: Nabooti Island

This one took me forever to complete. I loved flying around Africa, exploring different regions and collecting jewels. (Spoiler alert: Not gonna lie, though, the part when the totem pole comes to life, talks, and flies away did freak me out.) I had to look up how to play Mancala before I could even do the Mountains of the Moon part because I had no idea what this game was, and I didn’t really understand what I was supposed to do when I was taking pictures for Big Zeke, but this was still one of my favorite islands.

#2: Big Nate Island

I feel like the islands based on comics, books, and other franchises unrelated to Poptropica don’t get as much attention as the more original islands do, but Big Nate Island really nailed it as far as gameplay, storytelling, and humor goes. I really miss playing this one. 

And last but certainly not least…

#1: Great Pumpkin Island

Okay, you gotta love Charlie Brown and this island. Even though I didn’t know what to do when the Red Baron ship was chasing me in Snoopy’s mini-game, and I had a really hard time with the part where you roll the pumpkin over to the Van Pelt house, I loved the simple yet challenging gameplay, the hilarious cutscenes, and the lovable characters. This was an overall fantastic island that feels like it should be more popular.

So there you have it! These are five islands I believe to be underrated and don’t have all the attention they deserve. Hope you enjoyed it!


On another note, does anyone here know about Blooket? It’s a site where you can take random quizzes and play games, and I recently created a quiz about Old Poptropica!

It’s got a range of trivia questions about the game from basic to advanced, and I’m always adding new questions! You’ll need a free account to play. Once you log in, look for my “Ultimate Poptropica Quiz” by searching for it under the “Discover” tab.

Please try it out and let me know what you think of it! You can share your suggestions for new questions in the comments. Thanks for reading!ย

Seasonal Shift for Starter Poptropicans ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Hey Poptropicans, pop in for some fresh looks! ๐ŸŒž

Gone are the old cast of default characters introduced last year with the restructuring of Poptropica to the Haxe engine. In comes a new crew for new accounts! You’ll find them right on the Poptropica homepage.

From left to right in the pics above, the new starters are: Coolin Dude, Snug Vibes, Floral Spring, Summer Vibes, Lightning Knight, Water Fight, Cool Blade, and Pumpkin Smash. You may recognize most of these looks from past store costumes, with Cool Blade also sharing their fit with Fashion Ninja from PoptropiCon’s Mighty Action Force.

Of course, players can customize their looks even further once they get into the game. Fun refresh, and cool to have all the seasons represented in the lineup. Wonder if this switch-up will happen again next year?


In other news, enjoy the latest fan art features from Pop’s Instagram stories, featuring some feisty character designs in fantastic styles! โš”๏ธ

Finally, don’t miss the return of PoptropiCon, Ep. 2 for non-members! For the best gamer tips, keep our PoptropiCon Island Guide close.

Power up, Poptropicans! ๐Ÿ”‹

Fanfic: The Pink Knight, Part 2/4 ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿชถ

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

Hello everyone, Dizzy Feather here with the second part of my fanfiction! (Catch up on part 1 here.) Before we begin, consider checking out my Pop Creators’ Blog guest post Superhero Team Introductions, which includes the Pink Knight as part of the Poptropican Heroes! โš”๏ธ

I’m also glad to revealย the first lucky Poptropican who will be in my story: Gray Cloud. โ˜๏ธ If Iย didn’tย pick you, don’t worry, there is still one more spot for the next part, and it could be you! Now back to the tale…

DIZZY FEATHER is still standing perfectly still. By her feet we see a cup spilling pink liquid onto the sidewalk. A flashback starts: It’s the end of the Legendary Swords action quest. The PINK KNIGHT defeats the robot, a flying golden disc opens, and we see the hologram of E. Vile.

The PINK KNIGHT enters her spaceship, and we hear DIZZY FEATHER’s voice start as the spaceship approaches Pewter Moon.

DIZZY FEATHER (VOICEOVER):
I was determined to find E. Vile and put a stop to his invasion, but I never found him. I only found his first target, Pewter Moon. I got there as soon as I could, but it was too late. 

The spaceship lands and the PINK KNIGHT steps out. The moon is almost destroyed. There are few alien buildings left standing, but badly damaged. Parts of E. Vile’s robots are littered throughout the scenery.

DIZZY FEATHER (VO):
I couldn’t find an alien in sight. All I could assume was that they were able to push back  against E.vile’s army. After that, I decided if I couldn’t find one villain and stop him, I had no business being a hero.

A CONVENTION WORKER shakes DIZZY FEATHER, who is staring off into space. The CON WORKER stops shaking her, takes a half-full water bottle, and pours its entire contents on top of DIZZY FEATHER, who blinks and shakes her head.

CON WORKER:
You OK there? 

DIZZY FEATHER:
Huh? Oh Yeah, I’m good. 

DIZZY FEATHER walks over to the MAN standing beside the spaceship (the same one who was beside the catapult in the first episode of PoptropiCon Island).

DIZZY FEATHER:
W-Where did the Spa-spaceship co-come from?

MAN:
I don’t know. It wasn’t even scheduled to be in the con.

DIZZY FEATHER takes off running into the Facili-tee clothing store. Inside, we see her gasping for air.

DIZZY FEATHER:
(panicked whispering) Not scheduled! It could be him! Deep breaths, Dizzy, deep breaths. If it is him, you need to stay calm. 

Suddenly there is a light blue flash and we hear screaming come from outside. DIZZY FEATHER runs outside, where people are running past her screaming. A man with bright red hair bumps into her.

DIZZY FEATHER:
What’s going on? 

RED-HAIRED MAN:
There’s this giant robot!

He runs off. DIZZY FEATHER reaches behind her and pulls the straps of her backpack. Her backpack disappears as her outfit is replaced with her Pink Knight uniform. DIZZY FEATHER (now the PINK KNIGHT) removes her sword from under her cape and runs towards a gigantic GOLDEN ROBOT destroying the area outside of the con.

PINK KNIGHT:
Hey! Over here! 

The GOLDEN ROBOT turns his head towards his much much smaller opponent and examines her with his three red eyes.

PINK KNIGHT:
Yep, the tiny teenage girl dressed in a pink superhero costume with a sword. Hey, let’s settle this the easy way. You go back to where you came from without any issues, and I won’t hurt you. Sounds good?

The ROBOT growls and swings its large paw towards the PINK KNIGHT. The Pink Knight’s sword starts to glow. She swings it at the paw and the sword cuts it off. The ROBOT howls.

PINK KNIGHT: 
What? I gave you the chance to go peacefully. You didn’t.

The ROBOT swings another paw at the PINK KNIGHT. She tries to do the same with the sword again but the ROBOT pulls his paw away just in time.

PINK KNIGHT:
That didn’t work. I’m going to fail this mission too! Well, of course I will fail with that attitude. I can do this! I believe in myself!

The ROBOT takes the opportunity and swings his paw again. The PINK KNIGHT is unable to dodge it and is slammed into the ticket booth on the outside of the con. She stumbles to her feet and picks up her sword.

PINK KNIGHT:
I need to find another way.

The PINK KNIGHT climbs out and runs towards the costume closet. She leaps onto it and then climbs up to the con balcony. Her sword starts to give off a pink electrical charge. The ROBOT swings his paw, but this time she dodges it; however, the ROBOT is able to grab her cape, which pops off her uniform.

PINK KNIGHT:
I’m so glad I bought one of those smart capes.

The PINK KNIGHT runs and jumps off the balcony towards the ROBOT, then throws her sword into one of the robot’s eyes. The ROBOT falls over as the PINK KNIGHT safely lands on the sidewalk. She climbs onto the robot, pulls her sword out, then runs where we can no longer see her. As the ROBOT explodes, there is another light blue flash.

Back in the Facili-tee, the PINK KNIGHT crashes into a tee-shirt stand. 

QUIPPY:
*Beep* *Boop* *Beep* *Boop*

PINK KNIGHT:
Sorry, I’ll clean it up.

As she starts picking the tee-shirts up and placing them back on the stand, there is  another light blue flash. The Pink Knight’s cape floats down towards her feet. She reattaches it to the rest of her uniform. A FIGURE runs towards the door. The PINK KNIGHT pulls the figure back.

PINK KNIGHT:
I should have known it was you and your little interactive hero simulation.

GRAY CLOUD:
Yep! It was me, and it’s called a separate world, interactive illustration. 

The PINK KNIGHT places her sword under her cape and pulls a string out of her pocket. Her outfit turns her back into DIZZY FEATHER.

DIZZY FEATHER:
Oh yeah, right. You and your sending distressed heroes into a semi-fake battlefield to “help them” has gotta stop.

GRAY CLOUD:
Hey, nothing works better at restoring a hero’s faith in themselves than to send them into a battlefield. Heroes do seem to find faith in themselves when they’re in danger.

DIZZY FEATHER:
You mean I could’ve actually been hurt in there?

GRAY CLOUD:
If you were not careful, you could have been. But nobody has been seriously hurt in the simulations so far.

DIZZY FEATHER:
You really need to learn how to give a better pep talk.

GRAY CLOUD grins before leaving the building. DIZZY FEATHER stands still for bit.

DIZZY FEATHER:
Gray Cloud is right. I lost faith in myself, I can still defeat villains. If E.vile is in that spaceship I’ll be ready for him. 

DIZZY FEATHER finishes placing the tee-shirts back on the stand. She walks out of the store, heads to the con’s doors, shows her ticket to a nearby con worker, and heads inside.

The spaceship sits in the alley, looking as it always has, for a few seconds. Then something behind the yellow glass of the circle window moves. We’re unable to make out what moved…

Props to You: May your legend never fade.
