Ice cream cat, how about that? 🍦🐈

Hey Poptropicans, are you ready for costumes galore?? 👗

The Pop Creators received tons fantastic entries for July’s monthly costume contest — enough to create a picture slideshow nine minutes long! Just take a look at the fandom’s creativity:

Picking a winning design was “an impossibly hard choice to make,” according to the Creators’ Blog, but in the end they went with the Ice Cream Cat by Silver Flame. 🍦🐈 As promised, the costume will soon be available for free through the returning Baron’s airship. Sweet!

While the video above contains loads more amazing costume ideas (and some copyrighted characters like Bendy, Baldi, Minecraft creepers, and more), I’d like to highlight a few of my personal favorites with a mini slideshow of my own. Which ones caught your eye, and did you have a creation featured? Share with us in the comments!


In other news, we’ve made it to the end of July, which means the login challenge has wrapped up! If you managed to log in to Pop every day for the past 10 days, a bonus 5,000 credits should have automatically been added to your account today. Cha-ching!

That’s all for now! Check back tomorrow for some more fanciful Community Creations. Stay awesome, Poptropicans. ✌️✨

Winter coloring pages with ends of ages ❄️

Hey Poptropicans! It’s mid-December, which means several things: rounding off the flurry of member gifts, some dates to remember, and even a handful of coloring pages when you need a break. Let’s pop into it!

The last of the 12 Days of Member Gifts is here, and it’s a doozy: this Ice Wielder Power is the perfect overlay for a wintry look, reminiscent of the Electrify power but with an animated storm of snowflakes.

Take a look back on the previous 12 Days of Member Gifts here, here, here, and here, and remember, you can get all 12 gifts if you become a member at any point this month. It’s the best time for bonus items!


There’s winter fun for all in other ways too, and the latest comes in the form of these free winter coloring pages from the Creators’ Blog! In addition to Poptropicans dressed for the cold, we’ve also got snowmen (one melted) and a candy cane. Click the images to open in full size!

Once you’ve opened a coloring page image, you could save them to your device and color them with an art app, or print them out and color them the traditional way. Either way, the Pop Creators would love to see your creations — you can share them on social media with the tag #poptropicart for a chance to have your work featured!


Have you been cooking up an idea for the Design Your Dream Island Contest? Keep in mind that the last day for entries is this Friday, Dec 18 at 11:59 p.m. PST! The winner will be announced ten days later, Dec 28.

Intensifying panic notwithstanding, be sure to use Poptropica’s submission form here when you send off your ideas. And you can share it with us, too, although we can’t make your island real.

In the last contest, the PHB shared a closer look at a contest entry from one of the runners-up: House of Cards Island. In a similar vein, if you’d like to share your island idea with PHB readers, we’d love to share what you’ve come up if you send in a guest post!


Time’s ticking for one more thing, too—the end of Flash itself. The end of 2020 marks the end of the Flash era, and we’re sending it off with a bang of a Poptropica party!

Come join us this Saturday at 8 p.m. Eastern on the PHC and Poptropica for a memorial to Poptropica’s longtime engine, as well as festivities for the holidays. See the full invite for our “Gone in a Flash” Holiday Party!

🥳 Pro tip: You don’t have to wait till a party comes along to connect with Poptropicans on our Poptropica Help Chat (PHC) Discord server!

Christmas with Krampus, winter costumes, and horses 👹🐎

Hey Poptropicans, it’s been a long time coming, but a new Poptropica story is finally on its way to our game screens!

The Creators’ Blog put out a sneak peek this week featuring a snowy village scene with a house adorned with holiday decorations, including pillars by the door featuring what appears to be Krampus, the horned Christmastime demon of European legend.

The Creators added that they’ve been “putting in some extra hours to make a fun side-quest experience for all players,” promising an “all-new story and all-new characters.”

While it won’t be a full island, we know fans have been eager for more storytelling from Poptropica, so this is exciting! But like recent adventures such as Hoptropica, this wintry tale will be a limited time experience, so stick around Pop this holiday season to find out what it’s about. What are your theories on these frosted window panes?


Speaking of the holidays, the 12 Days of Member Gifts continue to rain down the goodies with various winter items: Winter PJs (Day 9), Cool Winter Outfit (Day 10), and Cool Winter Boots (Day 11).

Remember that you can get all 12 prizes if you become a member at any point this December. See what else members have been getting on the Creators’ Blog, and stay tuned for the twelfth and final gift!


The Creators have been keeping up with their promise of sharing a “Video of the Week,” and in this fourth week of the series, they’ve shared a video from TikTok that “made the whole Poptropica Creators team laugh pretty hard.”

It’s a 10-second clip that pairs the song “Old Town Road” with Elmer the horse on Wild West Island. Check it out on the Creators’ Blog!

Time for some horseplay.

Last but not least, reminders for a couple big things next week: 1) the deadline for Poptropica’s Design Your Dream Island Contest comes up this Friday, Dec 18; and 2) the PHB is putting on a Poptropica party to pay tribute to the end of Flash and celebrate the holidays this Saturday, Dec 19. Find the details to our “Gone in a Flash” Holiday Party here!

Horseback riding through the snow, with plenty of sweaters to stay warm ❄️ 🐴

Hey there, Poptropicans! First things first: another week has flashed by, and that means another store rotation! There’s not a whole lot of new items this time around, but the costume section has got a few cool outfits added. Let’s take a look!

The newest items added this week include:

  • Sunny Sport, Tie-Dye Hoodie, Rock Star (male & female), Elf Costume*

The Little Candy Cane, which remains in the store from last week’s rotation, is oddly showed in both the Power section and the Costume section. Strange, but the more candy canes, the merrier!

The store isn’t the only place to find fun new gear, as 12 Days of Member Gifts festivities are still going strong! For Day 7, Poptropica members received the fabulous—and ever so slightly ridiculous—Snowflake Costume! Just perfect for winter.

Blend in with your wintry surroundings…

Or, if sporting the giant snowflake look is too cold for you, there’s always the option to take the warmer route and bundle up in a Cozy Seater (Day 8)! (Perhaps they meant “Sweater”?)

…or just cozy up instead.

Once you’ve finished your holiday shopping, maybe pop on over to the newest ad: Spirit: Riding Free is available to play on Home Island, or you can access it through the in-between scenes on any island.

Get ready to ride!

The ad doesn’t involve much; all you’re asked to do is watch a short trailer video, and you’re given two themed prizes. The prizes are Lucky’s Racing Gear and Free Spirit! Check out what happens when you tap the space bar on that second item…

Neat stuff! And that’s not all that’s happening this month; join in on the PHB’s Gone-in-a-Flash holiday party, participate in December’s Fire and Ice themed Community Creations, and even submit your ideas to the Creators for the Create Your Dream Island contest before it closes! Happy holidays, and I’ll see you all next time!
