Frosted Smallfoot, LEGO mammoth (three ads)

Hey Poptropicans! Brace yourselves for a chill, because right now Poptropica is hosting three pretty frosty ads! (Unless you’re also counting that ever-obtrusive ad for Poptropica on Poptropica, which really needs to just go. Anyway…)

You can find all of these ads with their own icons on the map. (There are also a couple other ads we covered earlier: Next Gen and Froot Loops.) Let’s take a look!


Smallfoot is an animated movie in theaters September 28, and for the ad, you can win a Snow Ball handheld item (with space bar to throw) by first watching the video, then playing a game. To beat the game, simply move your cursor to help Smallfoot avoid crashing into anything as he makes a long descent!


Frosted Flakes is a cereal by Kellogg’s, and its ad takes you to an area where, once inside, you’ll be wearing a bike helmet (not a separate item, though). The gist of the game is to click-and-hold to jump over various obstacles strewn along a suburban street as you cycle through as Tony the Tiger.

At the end, you’ll be awarded a Tony Follower and Cereal Toss (power and handheld). If the cereal box hits a Poptropican when thrown, it’ll bounce off of them.


LEGO City is a line of LEGO products that includes a helicopter mammoth mission—the focus of this ad, earlier rumored to be made into its own island. To play the game, head inside the building and hop into the chopper. The rules are simple: avoid the obstacles, but pick up the green batteries for an energy boost.

Once you reach the legendary mammoth, you’ll win two prizes: an Explorer Suit (which can send down snow with the press of the space bar) and Helicopter Follower.


These aren’t the only games around on Poptropica! As mentioned in the post below, Dr. Hare’s Secret Lab is also back for a limited time, from now until Monday, September 17. You can find it on the map, or access it through its item card if you grabbed it before it left the store several months ago with the store update. There’s a new Rabbot costume to be had—though it’s not an item card, just something you can Costumize. 🤖

Browse below for all the latest happenings on Poptropica! Keep popping on, ‘tropicans.

nextgen1

The game is super easy, and I mean super easy. All you have to do is press your space bar to blast the bots in your path until you get to the finish line. That’s pretty much it. For completing the task, you’ll win a Mai Outfit and a 7723 Follower.

What items would you like to see added to the shop next month? Are you going to watch Next Gen? Sound off in the comments section below!

Thanks for reading as always and I’ll talk to you soon… pop on!

Thrown for a Loop: the return of Realms and more

What’s up, Poptropicans? It’s Lucky Joker here, and I’m very excited to share some uplifting news with you all today.

If you’ve been keeping up with the Creators’ Blog and Poptropica in general, you’ve probably noticed they’ve been pretty silent and stagnant as of late. Well, the silence has been broken with the announcement of several things.

Most notably, Realms will be back! As the official blog put it: “We know, it never actually left the map, but now it will work!” (Read more about this feature on our Realms Guide.)

poptropica realms

It’s been down due to technical issues for over a year, to the frustration and disappointment of many Poptropicans. We surely doubted Poptropica would ever do anything about it, but boy did they prove us wrong!

Realms was definitely one of Poptropica’s most popular features, so perhaps this rebirth will bring back a lot of players who enjoyed the sandbox creation world, which was sometimes known as Pop’s version of Minecraft.


Also on the Creators’ Blog, the Creators have posted a bit of an explanation as to why they’ve been so quiet. Here’s the gist of it (our emphases added):

pop_constructionLet’s just say, Poptropica has been “under construction.” All the great people who work on Poptropica got together this month to plan a bunch of updates to Poptropica and Poptropica Worlds! We’ve been super busy behind the scenes fixing things, building new things, and working on bringing back some fan favorites! We’ve gone through all your amazing feedback from this year and have a lot of great stuff in the works!

The rest of that post promises some of this “great stuff” we can look forward to:

  • monthly updates (which will be inclusive to all players, not just members)
  • more contests (with an all-new contest coming up next week!)
  • a behind the scenes look every week at what they’re working on

Very exciting to hear! The PHB will be following right along as always, so keep checking in with us to see what’s new!


I’m also here to walk you through a Froot Loops advertisement, which can be found on Home Island of Poptropica Original. It’s pretty self-explanatory — just run, jump, and grab all the Froot Loops cereal!

froot loops 3

You’ll have four minutes to grab all fifty Froot Loops. (Don’t worry, it only took me around a minute.) One you do so, you’ll win a fun Froot Loops Blaster (press spacebar to throw Froot Loops) and a Toucan Sam Follower!


Last but not least, don’t forget to enter our PHB Header Design Contest and our Community Creations for August. 🎨 You have until the end of this week!

So how are you feeling about the upcoming contests and updates? Oh right, we don’t know exactly what they are yet... Still, I’m feeling hopeful and quite happy about them. What about you?

Comment below, thanks for reading, and I’ll talk to you all soon. Pop on!

Lego Island: not yet completed

Hey Poptropicans! Leggo see what’s goin’ on with Pop…

Checking in on my friends, polishing my island medallions—wait, hold up. What’s this? A new medallion?? That I don’t have yet??? Are we getting a… Lego Island????

lego

Thanks to Massive Monster for the tip-off about this!

Well, sort of. Our resident glitcher, idk (who also recently made a tool for the ASG), went poking behind-the-scenes into Poptropica’s files to see what was going on.

lego island

Here’s what he told curious Poptropicans on the PHC (our emphases added):

Poptropica will soon be advertising many different types of Lego products. So instead of creating disconnected ad rooms for each one, they’ve created a separate island to contain them all. And because every product line’s ads probably won’t be released simultaneously, it makes sense to create something which can be updated after its launch.

Lego Island just consists of a Main Street scene containing a door to an ad scene. It currently only contains an ad for Lego City, but there are a couple of unused item cards for Lego Star Wars. It doesn’t have a medallion so [I don’t know] why it showed up in the medallion list. The Main Street scene has an asset from [the canceled] Water Thrill Island though, so that’s neat.

Water Thrill Island

The asset from Water Thrill Island, for the unreleased Lego Island

So, that’s all we know so far about Lego Island: it won’t be a full-fledged official island like we know of them, but just a series of ads lumped together on one (probably temporary) island, to come in the near future. And there might be a water slide.

In other news, don’t forget you have until the end of this week to enter our PHB Header Design Contest and our Community Creations for August! Leggo!

A gram of Hare and ad-ception

Hey Poptropicans! It’s Dr. Fish—uh, Slanted Hare—uhh, whatever; somebody with a funky animal name and honorific that only #RealPoptropicans would understand.

For those of you on the ‘gram, you might like to know that the PHB is now on Instagram, too! Well, sort of. We’re letting our fluffy friend Dr. Hare run the show:

insta

Dr. Harvey Hare, as any #RealPoptropican can tell from the profile, holds a PhB degree in Poptropica help, so I daresay he’s qualified to post his hare-y selfies while offering Poptropica updates and other tidbits on our new PHB feed. Plus, he just won “Best Poptropica Worlds Character” in this year’s Poppies, and he’s pretty proud of the fact!

Charming, is he not? Give him a follow on Instagram @PoptropicaHare!


In other events… while enjoying some good old Poptropica Multiverse at the Poppies party last weekend, I came across something a little odd… are you seeing it, too?

adception

Ads for Poptropica… while playing Poptropica! And not just one, or two, but three of them! Now I’m not sure whether this is desperate, or sad, or funny, or perhaps a mixture of all three… but it does seem rather excessive.


Anyway, these are the latest shenanigans on Poptropica. Let us know what you think in the comments, follow us @PoptropicaHare on insta, and as always, keep on popping!

Gasp, the Wasp in Ant-Man ad

Hello, everyone! It’s Lucky Joker here, firstly, with an advertisement tutorial from Poptropica Original. The ad is for Marvel’s “Ant-Man and The Wasp” which premieres in theaters July 6. Let’s pop into it!

I was only able to find the ad billboard on the main street of Escape from Pelican Rock Island, so I suggest heading straight there to save some time. 😛

Ant-man Poptropica ad 1

Now here’s what you have to do: first, watch the video trailer; second, pick a character (Ant-Man or The Wasp); third, play the game — dodge all of the floating objects (which includes fruit, frying pans, and other kitchen items) by moving your cursor up and down.

Ant-Man Poptropica Ad

Once you do all of those things, you’ll win an Ant-Man Costume and a Wasp Costume! Who would’ve guessed, right? Anyway, if you tap the space bar while wearing either costume, you’ll shrink!

Ant-man Poptropica ad 3

Update: There’s an “Ant-Man and The Wasp” ad on Poptropica Worlds too. With this ad, just watch the video to get the prizes: an Ant-Man helmet and a Wasp helmet.

Ant-Man Poptropica Worlds Ad 2.png


Also, yesterday on Twitter, a Poptropican called Rough Bird reached out to the Poptropica Creators about wanting another “Create Your Dream Island” contest for the newer players. And guess what? Poptropica liked the tweet!

It’s a far reach to say there’s going to be another CYDI contest happening this year, but perhaps the Creators will at least consider it for the future!


Do you want another Create Your Dream Island contest? Are you going to see “Ant-Man and The Wasp” in theaters? Sound off in the comments!

Thanks for reading and I’ll talk to you soon… pop on!

The incredible inauguration of monthly member gifts

Hello, everyone! It’s Lucky Joker here with news from the worlds of Poptropica.

Over on Poptropica Original, the Creators have started something called Monthly Member Gifts. Every month starting now, active paying Poptropica members will receive some fun item cards. This month, those nifty items are a Cute PuppyUnicorn Head, and Shrink Power! If you’re a member, they’ll be automatically added to your inventory.

Poptropica_June_Member_Gift

The Cute Puppy is reminiscent of a hand-carried dog from the original app’s Pets Pack,  while the Shrink Power was formerly known as the Minimizer (and available not just for members, I might add). The Unicorn Head is new, though.

If you’re not a member, you can still buy a membership within the month and these items will automatically be added to your account. Great if you want to get them!


Over on the Poptropica Worlds app, a Jack-Jack machine has been added on Home Island. Like the previous Zomberry machine, it offers more picture-taking fun.

incredibles AR.gif

As you can see in the GIF from the Poptropica Creators’ Blog post, there are three Jack-Jack filters to choose from. You can even take pictures with other people—and pets too!


Well, that’s it for now. What do you think of these little updates? Leave your thoughts in the comments!

Thanks for reading as always! I’ll talk to you soon… pop on!
