My Little Art Features: A New Challenge Rumbles ๐Ÿฆ„โœจ

Hear ye, hear ye! We will soon be returning to the fantastical world of Fairytale Island in the upcoming side quest: Rumpel’s Challenge!

The Creators’ announcement goes on to explain that the quest will continue the island’s story and answer some of our burning questions. The promise of tying loose ends reminds us of the Fairytale Fanfic Contest, in which fans wrote their own endings to Fairytale Island. How closely will the official tale match fanfiction? We’ll have to wait and see.

However, this story has a dark twist: only members can take on Rumpel’s challenge. This news may remind some players of Poptropica’s members-only bonus quests, which were extra quests added to the endings of islands during the early 2010s. It’s disappointing that not everyone will be able to end Fairytale Island on a satisfying note. We can only wish that the Creators will eventually give every player the chance to finish the tale…

To tide us over until the release, the Creators graced us with some concept sketches for a new character! The image name is Queen Ideas_2, so it looks like we’ll be meeting the queen of Fairytale Island! Judging by the art shown below, she appears to be regal ruler who loves cats and knows how to use a sword. She also has a curly updo similar to Cinderella, so could they be related? Where was she during the main story? Theorize away, Poptropicans!

But wait! We have more news for you, though prepare to feel some dรฉjร  vu.

Some of you may have already played the ad game for My Little Pony: A New Generation. In a surprising development, there is now a second My Little Pony ad on Poptropica! It’s not often that Poptropica hosts two separate ads for the same product at the same time. There is no game in this particular ad, though. All you need to do is watch the trailer to win two new pony prizes: the Zipp Outfit and the Hitch Outfit.

Here’s a neat tidbit about these prizes: if you press the spacebar while equipping one of the prizes, that respective pony’s cutie mark will pop up on screen for a second. Stop by both ad spots and win all five prizes, one for each of Gen 5’s Mane 5. Gotta befriend em’ all! ๐Ÿ’ซ๐Ÿงถ๐Ÿ›ก๏ธ๐ŸŽคโšก๏ธ

The official Poptropica Instagram account shared eight pieces of fan art in yesterday’s stories. Among them were spooky and silly entries for the now closed costume contest, and they all look like they could be great additions to the game. There is also art of original characters and airships, as well as some Rumpelstiltskin fan art just in time for the announcement of Rumpel’s challenge.

That’s all for now! Are you looking forward to the follow-up to Fairytale Island? How do you think the tale will end? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!

Store styles up for grabs, other surprises Under Wraps ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ•บ

What’s popping, Poptropicans? We’ve got flannel flair, mummy madness, and sidebar snippets to see. Let’s pop right in!

A new week brings another refresh to Adventure Outfitters, and this time, Amelia’s brought out a new Flannel Tank (200 credits) for the fall vibes. We also have the return of the classic Fairy Queen costume (350 credits, members only). See the full stock on the Creators’ Blog ยป

But wait, there’s more! *inhale* The clubhouse store is also stocking some new gear, and don’t blink, ’cause we got pink.

New decor includes the Daisy Printed Tapestry (100 credits), Rocking Gamer Chair (150), Square Storage Ottoman (75), Pink School Backpack (75), Inhale & Exhale Wall Prints (100), and a College-Style Electric Scooter (100). Whatchu think? *exhale*

On the subject of store stuff, don’t forget that today’s the deadline for the Baron’s Red October costume design contest! You have until Tuesday, September 14th at 8pm PST/11 pm EST to submit your creation(s) for a chance to get your design in the game. Good luck!

In other news, there’s a new video ad with prizes from Disney Channel’s new movie, Under Wraps! To watch it, click on its icon on the map or hop on over to 24 Carrot Island. After the viewing, you’ll get an Iโ€™m A Mummy costume and the Dancing Mummy Follower!

Pressing the spacebar makes two different things happen. Wearing the costume allows you to dance, and using the follower allows Harold the mummy to dance. Use both prizes simultaneously for best results. ๐Ÿ•บ๐Ÿ•บ

Speaking of video, over on the Pop Creators’ Blog, there’s a new sidebar section dedicated to Poptropica videos! Like the video at the bottom corner of the game screen, this little area loops short clips of scenes from the game that you might also find on their YouTube channel.

It’s certainly an interesting addition, and one that makes more sense being placed here than on the game screen, where there’s already plenty of movement going on. What with TikTok virality and now this, it looks like Poptropica’s popping off with the vids!

One last thing to note: the Creators’ Blog has been dropping some hints about birthday celebrations coming up, including something that involves us, the players. What might it be? We’ll have to see…

Keep an eye out for upcoming news about special events celebrating Poptropicaโ€™s 14th birthday and most importantly, YOU!

That’s a wrap for this post. What do you think of the store stuff, birthday surprises, and more? Share your thoughts in the comments, and see you next time, Poptropicans!

My Little Art Features ๐Ÿด

Howdy Poptropicans, it’s LJ here with a bit of news for you today. Let’s pop into it!

Over on the Poptropica IG, the creators shared some stories which include a recent TikTok (which hit 200K+ plays) and a couple of fanarts โ€” one by yours truly and one by Barefoot Knuckle (check out her feature in our Pop Fan Artist Spotlights!).

On the game itself, a sparkly new ad has emerged on the third page of the map for the upcoming My Little Pony: A New Generation movie! Go inside and talk to either Izzy or Sunny to start the race.

The game is pretty simple: all you have to do is jump over obstacles by clicking your mouse without losing your six lives. (Tip: you can double click to jump higher if you need to!)

Once you finish, you’ll win Sunny and Pipp (misspelled as ‘Pip’, grr) followers as well as a stellar Izzy outfit.

Dang, I think I look pretty gorgeous if I do say so myself. ๐Ÿ˜ Anyway, the kickstarter film for MLP g5 premieres on Netflix in just over two weeks on Sept 24! Will you be watching? I definitely will. โœจ

Thank you all for reading, friends. I’ll talk to you soon as I have something to address. Until then, pop on!

Jivin’ with JoJo at Clean Sun’s Clubhouse ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐ŸŒž๐Ÿก

What’s up, Poptropicans! We’ll be checking out a sweet clubhouse along with the latest ad that has players moving to the music. Let’s go!

A new ad spot arrived advertising JoJo Siwa’s movie: The J Team. You can find this particular ad on the map or on various islands. The ad spot features Ruby D and Jojo Siwa herself, though it would be funny if the Creators reused BopBop‘s design for JoJo. While it appears to be a simple video ad at first glance, watching the trailer takes you to a JoJo-themed ad game.

This is a simple memory game. JoJo will perform some dance moves, then you need to repeat the moves in the correct order. Each playthrough will randomize the order of moves, so pay attention to what JoJo does on the screen.

Successfully repeating the routine rewards you with a JoJo Siwa outfit and a Sparkle Mic. If you press the spacebar while holding the mic, you can perform a song and dance routine under a blue spotlight. ๐ŸŽค๐ŸŽถ

A few days ago, the Creators released the second installment of the new Clubhouse Crawl series. This week’s randomly chosen interior decorator is Clean Sun, who decked their virtual home with exotic wildlife and tasty desserts. This Instagram video gives us a quick glimpse into Clean Sun’s clubhouse, but you can read the full tour on the Creators’ Blog.

That’s all for now, although there hasn’t been any news regarding the September member gifts. Where are they, Creators? Please let us know. ๐Ÿฅบ

Anyway, we hope you all liked this Poptropica news flash. Thank you for reading, and have a good day!

POP it in the oven and bake it off ๐ŸŽ‚

Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Dangerous DragonEnjoy!

Hi Poptropicans, DD here with the new Pop advertisement! Itโ€™s for an upcoming Disney reality TV show called Magic Bake-Off. Head there through the map or the ad building.

Once you enter, youโ€™ll be paired up with a team to bake a cake, facing off against another team. There are two rounds.

Let’s get baking! The instructions for round one will pop-up. Follow the steps, and soon the cake will be ready to bake in the oven.

Then comes the second round. Again, follow the instructions, and your cake will be done and decorated. Thatโ€™s your cake!

For your efforts, you’ll win two prizes, a Sprinkles Cannon and Icing Blaster. Here’s me modeling the giant sprinkle gun.

Thatโ€™s the end! I wonder… is this the real recipe they use in the Disney show? Thatโ€™s it for today, now you try it!

Keep Poppin,

DD ๐Ÿ’œ
