Milk it! It’s delicious AND nutritious 🥛

Hey Poptropicans! Did you know that drinking milk, which contains calcium, helps give you stronger bones? It’s true!

Or, put it another way: Tastes good. Good for you. That’s it… and that’s the premise of Poptropica’s latest ad campaign, “Milk it!”

Head on over to the “Milk it!” ad building on Home Island and you can click into a YouTube channel promoting good old healthy milk.

And this being an ad on Poptropica, there’s bound to be some fun involved! Talk to the first kid you see inside to begin a game. It’s a simple run-and-jump deal, where you click up to jump over people and other obstacles. You get to pick one of two characters to play as, and you have 60 seconds.

If you reach the finish line in time, you’ll win two prizes: a Sports Outfit (press space bar to shoot the yellow basketball) and Milk Bottle handheld item (comes in three colors: regular milk, chocolate milk, and strawberry milk).

That’s all for now. Stay hydrated, Poptropicans!

Map of mighty changes

Hey Poptropicans, it’s Slanted Fish. Let me just check the map real quick to see where we’re going today — huh? It looks like things have moved around! Take a look for yourself at Poptropica’s indecisive GPS:

(Thanks to Quick Fang for the tip and pictures.)

Categories have improved since the last map update in 2017, which had raised a lot of questions. The new categories, which generally make more sense than the previous ones, are as follows:

  1. The Adventures Begin (Home, Monkey Wrench)
  2. Adventures of Time (Time Tangled, 24 Carrot, Mythology)
  3. Adventures of Atlantis (all 3 episodes of Mission Atlantis each with their own “island,” with some new icons)
  4. Adventures of Destiny (Mystery of the Map, Escape From Pelican Rock, Shrink Ray)
  5. Adventures of Survival (all 5 episodes of Survival each with their own “island,” with some new icons)
  6. Adventures of the Mighty (Poptropolis Games, Virus Hunter, Monster Carnival)
  7. Adventures of Heroes (all 3 episodes of PoptropiCon each with their own “island,” with some new icons)
  8. Adventures of the Strange (Galactic Hot Dogs, Timmy Failure, Mocktropica)
  9. Adventures of Nights (all 3 episodes of Arabian Nights each with their own “island,” with some new icons)
  10. Old School Islands (spanning 8 map pages, containing the rest of the islands, which are non-SUIs: not Sound Updated Islands)

Considering the categorization of “Old School Islands” (which simply means they’re older) and how they’re relegated to the end of the map pages, it looks like those islands, because they lack the newer technology that gives other islands their bigger screens and other features, may not be as much of a priority for Poptropica.

It’s not clear whether they’re working on bringing those islands into the newer tech, so that they can be accessed after the end of Flash, so if you like those islands — play them while you can. As for the other, larger-screen islands, it looks like they’ll be around for the future.


In other news, there’s a new ad around for The LEGO Movie 2, which is already in theaters. The game is simple: click to dodge obstacles in your path as you (playing as either Emmet or Lucy) drive an automobile while being chased by a Duplo alien.

At the end, you’ll win a Planty Follower (which bounces!) and an Angry Unikitty Follower.

There is also an ad for Frosted Flakes, but upon trying to hit the slopes, I only get sent back to the main area and can’t play the game. If it works later on, though, this post will be updated.

Check back later for more Poptropica news — we’ve got a post coming about the spring store updates!

Keep on ‘tropping, Poptropicans.

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):

clubhouse update 6


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!
