Fun and games for pets at the clubhouse

Hey, Poptropicans! This is Gentle Dolphin bringing you the latest Poptropica news, so let’s kick things off with a fetching clubhouse shop update

The furniture store over at Poptropica Original has recently been updated with some new items that should please the sports stars and pet lovers of Poptropica.

In this update, you will find sports equipment for games like ping pong, baseball, tennis, volleyball, basketball, and soccer (or football if you prefer to call it that). You’ll also find a few goodies for pets, as well as a new wallpaper just in time for spring.

The new sports and pets items each cost 75 credits, and the wallpaper costs 150 credits. Plus, they’re available to all players so that’s awesome!

Here’s a picture I took of my clubhouse after buying some of the new items (I apologize for the low resolution):

Also, there’s been an update to the Poptropica Stickers app on iOS! You can find some cute critters among the “Pets! Pets! Pets!” and “Spring Favorites” sections, including pet toys, elephants (Dumbo?), and flowers.


In other news, there’s a new ad for Disney’s upcoming reboot of “Dumbo” (yup… knew those elephants came from somewhere). All you need to do is to watch the video in order to get the adorable Dumbo Follower. You can even click on Dumbo to hear him trumpet.

That’s about it for now. What do you think of the new clubhouse items? Will you be seeing the live-action “Dumbo” in theaters next week? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!

A super Island makeover for Spring!

What’s up, Poptropicans? It’s Lucky Joker here along with a new, revamped Home Island and an advertisement!

Upon logging in, you’ll notice the entire island has been made over for spring with green grass, brightly colored bushes, and flowers pretty much everywhere you look.

It’s actually really pretty! Something tells me this is going to be a seasonal thing.


Anyway, next we have a video advertisement for Cartoon Network’s “DC Super Hero Girls” show.

All you gotta do is watch the short ad and you’ll earn two costumes – Batgirl and Wonder Woman.

Welp, those are the couple of updates we have for now. I’ll be sure to keep you posted with more news to come, so stay tuned. Thanks for reading as always, talk to you soon. Pop on!

Sweet gifts with Kim-POP-pible and Fruity Pebbles

Hey again, Poptropicans! It’s Lucky Joker here with the sweet member gifts of February.

If you’re a member, you will receive these five festive items upon logging in: Valentino Outfit, Heartbreaker, Crushing Outfit, Sweet Heart, and Candy Storm. According to the Creators, these gifts “will never be released again,” so get yours while you can.

How lovely. Remember, if you buy a membership any time within the month, you will receive all five of these gifts!


In other news, there are two ads currently pestering Poptropica with four total prizes to be earned. Let’s check them out!

The first one advertises the upcoming Kim Possible Disney channel movie, which premieres on the channel on February 15. To get the goods, all you have to do is watch the short video trailer. What you’ll win includes a cool grappling hook (which functions similarly to the grappling bow tie in Spy Island) and quite possibly the strangest follower I’ve ever seen — a Rufus follower.

The second one advertises America’s fruitiest cereal, Fruity Pebbles; this ad is also just a video. After you watch the ad, you’ll get a Cereal Guitar (I remember making one of these when I was little!) and a neat Robot helmet. Yabba Dabba Doo!

That about covers it for today! What do you think about this month’s member gifts? My favorite is definitely the candy storm power. After all, they’re not going to be available in real life this year… RIP.

Thanks for reading as always, and I’ll talk to in the next one… pop on!

The Gifts That Would Be For Members Only

What’s up, Poptropicans? It’s Lucky Joker here with this month’s wintery member gifts and an advertisement.

If you’re currently a member, you’ll receive three winter styles upon logging in. Boys will receive outfits called Frosty, Ice, and Cool, and girls will receive outfits called MeowToasty, and Snugly.

Remember, if you purchase a membership any time within January, you’ll obtain all the member’s gifts (corresponding to your character’s gender).


Also, an ad for the upcoming movie, The Kid Who Would Be King (which premieres on January 25), can be found on various islands. Home Island or 24 Carrot would be your best bet.

There’s no game this time, but there are prizes. To get them, all you have to do is watch the short video trailer.

The prizes you’ll earn are King Arthur’s Sword and an Owl Transformation.

So, are you going to see The Kid Who Would Be King? What do you think about this month’s member gifts? Leave your thoughts in the comments!

That’s all for now. Thanks for reading, and I’ll talk to you all soon… pop on!

Mary POP-pins returns to Poptropica

Hello, Poptropicans! It’s Lucky Joker here with a practically perfect Photo Booth update for the movie everybody’s talking about—”Mary Poppins Returns.”

It’s just one new backdrop and three new props (including two human characters 🤷‍♂️). Fly a kite with Mary and Jack in front of a neat backdrop in this latest update. Check out my snapshot below featuring a festive Lucky Joker:

In addition to the Photo Booth update, an advertisement for the sequel film can be accessed via the island map. Simply watch the video, and you’ll receive a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Balloon Power which makes everyone around you float.

So, have seen the movie yet? What did you think of it? Let us know down in the comments (but no spoilers!).

Thank you for reading as always, I’ll talk you all in the next one. And to those who celebrate… have a Mary Christmas from the PHB, and from the Creators! Pop on!

Chat about the new LEGO Minecraft ad!

How’s it going, Poptropicans—it’s Lucky Joker here! Let’s pop into the latest news.

Over on Poptropica’s Instagram (@poptropicacreators), which seems to be the primary source of Poptropica news these days, we’ve got a bit of a “sneak peek” (if you want to call it that 😛 ) regarding the Blast-Off Arcade:

As the Creators’ post says, new chat features are coming to the arcade! That’s pretty cool. (Too bad it isn’t an island… it’s kind of been a while…) I wonder what the “gazillion other new things” they mention in the caption will be? Hmmm.


That’s not all. There are also a couple of new advertisements. Let’s start off with the LEGO Minecraft one, which can be found on Home Island.

The goal of the game is to escape the Creepers by dodging obstacles with the click of your mouse—without losing your six lives. (Tip: click multiple times for a higher jump)

Once you successfully make it to the finish, you’ll earn a batty Bat Follower and a Crazy Minecart. Cool!

For the next ad, Disney’s Mary Poppins Returns, you can access it via the island map.  There’s no game for this one; all you have to do is watch the short video trailer to earn a Kite Power card. The movie premieres in theaters on December 19. 🙂

Well, that’s it for now! What do you think the new chat options will be like? Are you going to see the new Mary Poppins movie? Let us know down in the comments!

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

Breaking news: Pets are blasting off to Poptropica!

Hello, everyone! It’s Lucky Joker here along with some huge news — new pets are coming to Poptropica!

In 2016, Poptropica released pet packs—a dog pack and a cat pack—to members only, which weren’t very popular among players. But coming soon, Poptropica will have all-new pets in store for us in the Pet Barn! The Creators posted a sneak peek with five animals: a dog, cat, chameleon, goat, and bunny rabbit.

PoptropicaPets

They’re so adorable! They’re probably the most adorable animals I’ve ever seen in Poptropica… which brings me to my next bit.

They don’t look quite “Poptropica” to me, if that makes sense. Compared to just about every other animal we’ve seen in Pop, they don’t really fit in — they look more suited to Worlds with the extra shading and thicker limbs if you ask me. Not really a complaint though, just an observation. 🙂


Also, the Blast-Off Arcade has been remastered and has officially opened! There are a few differences to be noted since the lase time it was open.

Blast-Off! Arcade

There have been a few minor design changes here and there, but the biggest difference would probably be with the Blaster Crazy game, or should I say, Blaster Attack.

Instead of being an ad game for the LEGO Star Wars play sets, it is now more original to Poptropica (and a little reminiscent of Astro-Knights Island in particular).

The gameplay is pretty much the same as before: first, choose a blaster, then, dodge and blast obstacles by moving your mouse around and pressing the space bar.


Lastly, an advertisement for Disney’s upcoming animated movie, Ralph Breaks the Internet, has surfaced and can be found on Home Island. There are two prizes to be earned, and to earn the first one, you must watch the video trailer. Go ahead and do that now… finished? 😉 Now onto the mini-game!

The mini-game is really easy, and mimics the one you’ve probably seen the little girl playing in the trailers for the movie on YouTube!

All you have to do is swipe the milkshakes to the cat, and swipe the pancakes to the bunny in the allotted time—without making more than seven mistakes. Don’t worry, the bunny won’t explode. 😜

Once you complete the game, you’ll win a Blockhead Transformer card and an awesome Vanellope Glitch Power card! Congratulations!

And that’s about it for now! What do you think about the Blast-Off Arcade? Are you going to watch “Ralph Breaks the Internet” in theaters next Wednesday? Most importantly, how do you feel about these new pets? Share it all in the comments below!

Thanks for reading as always, and I’ll talk to you in the next one… pop on!
