Hop up top with Paws of Fury ๐Ÿคบ๐Ÿพ

Heyo Hoptropicans! We’ve got a lot of leaping to do today!

Two limited edition games have popped up on the map. The first one is familiar: hello Hoptropica! In this game, pick a furry doctor to play as, then hop your way through the platforms, careful not to fall. ๐Ÿฆซ๐Ÿฐ

Everything you need to know is in our Hoptropica Guide! โญ๏ธ Just replace stars with cakes, as this is the birthday edition, which first appeared for Pop’s 14th birthday last September. We’re not sure whose birthday they’re celebrating this time, but we’d like to believe it’s the PHB’s, as our blog birthday is coming up in July. ๐Ÿฐ

You’ll also get 14 credits for each play! Whether you’re Team Beev or Team Hare, be sure to take advantage of the opportunity while you can.

There’s more jumping to do over at the new Paws of Fury minigame! ๐Ÿถ You can find the ad building for the upcoming movie on Fairytale Island or directly on the map. Anyone getting Red Dragon Island vibes? Anyway, enter and talk to Hank the dog to begin the obstacle course.

With just two minutes to make your way up to the top, it’s short and sweet. For your efforts, you’ll win a Hank Outfit and Emiko Follower, with space bar actions to swing their samurai swords. โš”๏ธ

And here are the latest fan art features from Poptropica’s Instagram stories, both honoring villains of old. Click the links for the original posts!

Hop & Pop to the top!

Lightyear of Looks for the Books ๐Ÿ’˜๐Ÿ‘€

Hey Poptropicans, have a look at the latest looks!

It must be Poptropica Fashion Week, as guest writer Pink Crush returns to the Pop Creators’ Blog with a second part to her Poptropashion fashion forward series. In case you missed it, check out part one here!

We’re so awed by this self-proclaimed Poptropica fashion advisor’s collection we’re even featuring it in our Pop Look Book. โœจ

As Pink Crush shares, the “Royal Princess” costume could be “glam enough for theย PHB’s Poppies!” ๐Ÿ† Speaking of which, our annual awards show is coming up next month, so stay tuned and get ready to vote!

We also appreciate the shout-out to the PHB at the end, where she notes that we’re “named the official Poptropica Fansite.” It’s trueโ€”in some ways! We’re not the only fans Poptropica awarded the Official VIP badge to back in 2017, but we’re one of the few still active in the fandom today.

In other news, here are the latest fan art features from Pop’s Instagram stories! Among them, we’ve got to plug our own Stranger Things Pop-over, which we brought back to celebrate the release of season 4. ๐Ÿ‘ป

As the last story shares, there’s something new on Home Island! Watch the video trailer for Lightyear, the upcoming Pixar film about Buzz Lightyear, to earn some free credits. Plus, you might still be able to find the Rainbow High ad game in other spots to snag more prizes. Enjoy! โšก๏ธ

May Costumes vie with Rainbow High ๐ŸŒˆ

Hey Poptropicans, pop in for fashion, ads, and art โ€” all at once!

May’s costume contest fan submissions reel is out and ready to be admired! ๐ŸŽž Although the Baron hasn’t yet picked a winning costume to bring to virtual life, her airship is expected to land soon, as it often does at the beginning of a month. In the meantime, enjoy the creativity:

Over on Home Island, there’s a new ad building for Rainbow High fashion dolls! Enter and talk to the nearest doll to help out with getting ready for their fashion show by collecting 8 outfits in 3 minutes. With surrounding sparkles, they’re pretty easy to spot all over the venue!

When you start the game, you’ll get to choose which team you’re helping: Rainbow High or Shadow High. After you win, you can play for the other school to get both prizes, the Emi Outfit and Heather Outfit.

Speaking of rainbow styles, remember to stop by Adventure Outfitters for colorful threads this Pride Month! ๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆโœจ

There’s more art to admire via Poptropica’s Instagram stories! From the Baron’s next great costume candidate “Boxing Barb” to a minor Monster Carnival character, check out the latest fan art features below. (Tip: Click the artists’ names to visit the original posts!)

March of Outfits: Oscars to Fraggle Rock ๐ŸŽŽ

March on in, Poptropicans, before March is on its way out!

Entries for the monthly costume contest are in, and while a winner has not yet been selected, the showreel for March’s costume designs is now available below. We’ll find out which one gets made in-game when the Baron docks again in early April!

This past weekend also saw the 2022 Oscars hosted, and Poptropica’s pop-arazzi got in on the buzz with some red carpet looks on their Instagram. ๐Ÿ†โœจ Check out their recreations of big night outfits worn by celebrity singer Beyoncรฉ, actor Simu Liu, actress Jessica Chastain, and actor Kodi Smit-McPhee (swipe to see them all):

Of course, if you’ve been on the internet lately, you might know that the stars of this year’s Oscars weren’t all the glitzy fashion, but the face slap moment that quickly became a meme. ๐Ÿ’ฅ Poptropica’s Instagram might only show a pretty side, but Poptropica’s Twitter gets real with a retweet of one such meme from Coolmath Games, and even their own surprised tweet when the moment occurred. Seems like Pop’s social media might have split personalities across platforms… ๐Ÿค”

Onto the game itself: on Home Island, there’s a new ad for Fraggle Rock: Back to the Rock (now streaming on Apple TV+)!

Head inside for an obstacle course mini-game to get Gobo’s backpack while avoiding hidden Gorgs and other dangers. After two minutes, if you make it, you’ll win a Doozer Follower and Be Red! outfit.

Still a better game than Unicorn Frenzy, perhaps? If we’re going to be playing lackadaisical mini-games, at least this one’s got Pop style.

Speaking of which, if you’ve been wondering what’s up with Poptropica’s Roblox game (or couldn’t get a game going), Poptropica recently released footage of the candy-colored collect-a-thon in action. ๐Ÿฆ„

Rounding off this update are the latest fan art features from Pop’s Instagram stories! These characters are really rockin’ their pink. ๐Ÿ’–

Keep on poppin’ on!

SomeBUNNY once told me the world… ๐Ÿ’Œ

Aside from those of us whose most exciting part of Valentine’s Day was a cancelled dentist’s appointment, the PHB hopes you had a happy heart day. All the love to you, dear readers! ๐Ÿ’–

The Poptropica Creators posted a series of cheesy and punny Valentine’s Cards, featuring many different characters (including some from islands and Realms yet to return).

Some of these are really cute. I love the background colors for the first collection! Too bad poor Balloon Boy has yet to land, even for a holiday!

The Adventure Outfitters shop has also been updated for the season, with the classic Heart Knight (300 credits) for all. Or if you want to be “one in Amelia-on,” try out the members-only Stylin’ Outfit (250): a nice mix between casual and fashionista.

Speaking of old islands, we have an ad that hearkens back to an early one. The Big Nate TV series is now being advertised on Home Island!

After watching the trailer, you get two interactive items: Cheezy Snacks and a Drum Kit. Upon activating each, a cloud of cheese dust covers your character, and the drums can be played! You can actually continue to walk while playing the drums (thanks for the tip, Gentle Dolphin).

Are any of you planning on seeing the Big Nate series on Paramount+? And regardless of your single/taken status, remember there are plenty of people, friends and family, who love you. I for one appreciate every reader here and look forward to your comments!
