August’s wacky, wild member gifts

What’s up, Poptropicans? It’s the start of a new month and you know what that means — all new member gifts are here — and it looks like Reality TV: Wild Safari Island had an influence on them. The exclusive prizes this time are:

  • Ostrich Rider
  • Sparkle Shades
  • Monkey Follower

Remember, if you’re a member, these items will be added to your inventory automatically when you log on. If you purchase a membership anytime within the month, you will also receive these special items.

New island and member gifts premiering this July

468x60pop

Hey, Poptropicans! This is Gentle Dolphin here with the latest Poptropica news!

Last week, the Creators announced that a new island is on its way, and now they decided to share two more behind-the-scenes drawings on Instagram.

The first picture shows three primates holding various objects: a monkey with a microphone, a chimp with a camera, and an orangutan with a drum stick. The second photo shows two Poptropicans who seem to be part of a film crew, since they have a microphone and a camera (which look similar to the ones owned by the primates from the first picture).

Fans on Instagram are already speculating what this new island will be about; some notable theories include wildlife documentaries and animal transformations. A couple people have joked about this island possibly being a sequel to a previous island, proposing titles such as “Monkey Wrench 2: Electric Boogaloo” and “Back Lot Island 2: Monkey Business”. Funny thing is, they may not be far off with the sequel idea…

Poptropica glitcher idk dug into some files and found that the island is looking like it will be a second season of Reality TV Island.

RTV Hippie

It’d be pretty cool to see a follow-up to another classic island (Greek Sea Odyssey, anyone?), but we’d certainly appreciate the Creators putting old school islands (including Reality TV Island) back on the maps of newer players. (If you aren’t able to access older islands like RTV, try updating Flash and/or playing on a different web browser or computer.)

Blue Tooth also took to Instagram to answer a couple questions regarding the island’s release. In a post about the Poptropica app, she answered a fan’s question by stating that the island will be released on desktop and mobile at the same time. Also, in a post about membership, she mentioned that the island will be coming later this month! 


Speaking of membership, July’s member gifts are making a splash with some beach-themed items: a unicorn floatie, a surfer outfit, and a shark hat. Active members will automatically receive these gifts any time they log in during the month of July, so act fast!

July is looking to be a great month for members. Not only do members get exclusive monthly member gifts, but they also get early access to brand new islands! If you’re interested in getting these cool perks and more, look into purchasing a membership.

That’s all for now! What do you think this upcoming island will be about? What do you think of these member gifts? Leave your thoughts in the comments below! Stay tuned to the Poptropica Help Blog for more Pop news, and be on the lookout for upcoming events here on the PHB. 😉

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!

School’s out, member gifts in

What’s up, Poptropicans? It’s Lucky Joker here, and even if out you’re not out of school quite yet, June’s member gifts are here and it’s time for the summer fun to begin (if you’re in the northern hemisphere, that is 😛)!

This month, if you’re a member, a Skater Outfit, Ice Cream Cone, and Water Balloon Prank will all be added to your inventory upon login. Pretty rad. 😎

Over on the Instagram post announcing the new items, Poptropica received a few comments asking about the future state of Poptropica.

One user asked, “Are you shutting down due to Adobe Flash shutting down?…” to which the Creators replied with “Nope, We’ll still be here! Our devs are working on porting to a new platform.” That’s a great relief! I’m sure most of us thought Poptropica Original would be no more in 2020.

The same Poptropican also asked, “…Also are new islands ever going to come?” The Creators responded, “We’ll see! 👀” Could this mean we’ll be finally getting a new island adventure soon? I certainly hope so! It’s been quite a while now, to say the least….


In other news, there’s a new video ad for the upcoming Toy Story 4 movie on Home Island. All you gotta do is hit play, watch the trailer, and voila! — a Forky Follower just for you.

So what do you think of this month’s member items? (I think they’re pretty cool.) How do you feel about new islands coming to Poptropica? I’m excited just thinking about the possibility! I’m sure it’s something we’ve all been waiting for. Also, are you going to see Toy Story 4? Let us know all your thoughts down in the comments section below.

Thank you all for reading and talk to you all in the next one. Pop on!

Not a member? Deal with it! (just kidding)

What’s up, everyone! This is Gentle Dolphin saying that the May member gifts are here! Remember, members, these items will be automatically added to your inventory upon logging in at any point in May.

This month, the member gifts are going retro! Active members will receive some pixelated goodies: a hat, a donut, a rainbow mohawk, and a familiar-looking pair a glasses. Pretty cool, right?

On social media, the Creators posted a GIF of Dr. Hare sporting these pixel glasses, complete with the iconic drop animation! 😎 This is the icing on the cake — er, donut in our case.

April’s “bazaar” Member Gifts have blossomed

Hello, Poptropicans!

It’s Lucky Joker here with the member gifts for April! If you’re a member, these items will be automatically added to your account’s inventory upon logging in.

The special gift items this month are:

  • Blossom Power
  • Daisy Pot Hat
  • Bunny Car

I quite like these items as they’re perfect for the season, well… for those of us living in the northern hemisphere that is. It’d would’ve been really cool, though, if we got a Dr. Hare car instead of just a generic bunny, haha! What do you think? Are you a fan of these items? Sound off in the comments!


In other news, over on the Creators’ Blog, new author Blue Tooth gave some sound advice on how to get past the palace guards on episode 1 of Arabian Nights: “How Bazaar.” They also shared this cool artwork to go along with it. Pretty neat!

If you need help on completing the entire episode, or any island for that matter, be sure to check out our full island walkthroughs right here on the PHB! 😉


Also, don’t forget to fill out our reader’s survey! The deadline is Saturday, April 6. Thanks for reading as always, I’ll talk to you soon…pop on!

Got a membership? You’re in luck. If you don’t? It’s your monthly pet peeve…

What’s up, member-tropicans? It’s Lucky Joker here along with the excusive member gifts for March! (And even if you’re not a member, at least check out the sneak peek to come…)

If you’re an active member or purchase a membership anytime throughout the month, these items will automatically be added to your inventory:

  • Leprechaun Follower
  • Green Power
  • Pie Day Pie Toss

I love that the items resemble the festivities this month. (It would’ve been cool to see a green and purple jester hat and mask for Mardi Gras too!) The Green Power and Pie Day would make great sabotages in multiverse parties, hehe.


In other news, Poptropica just released a sneak peek on Instagram of some accessories for pets that are coming soon! Take a look:

They’re really cute, but unfortunately—from what I can tell—most of the stock will be member exclusive. But hey, you never know, right?


And one more thing: Poptropica has a new screen for when players need to activate Flash in order to play Poptropica, featuring the likes of Shark Boy and other Poptropicans (and even a pet chameleon) surrounding him!

So, what do you think of these member gifts? How about the upcoming pet stuff or the new Flash screen? Sound off in the comments!

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

Wonderful Valentine’s Vêtements!

How ya doin, Poptropicans? It’s Lucky Joker here, and today I bring you the latest cards and costumes added to the Poptropica store for February, and more! Let’s pop into it!

Unlike last month’s new items, most of this month’s new, Valentine-themed stock is available to all players — not just for members. Please note, this is not a full a store update, so the previous stock is still here. The new additions to the store are:

Gold Cards

  • Garlic Breath
  • Love Potion (members only)
  • Bouquet of Roses
  • Heart Balloon
  • Cupid Follower (members only)
  • Box of Chocolates (members only)

Costumes

  • Little Demon (Boys)
  • Little Demon (Girls)
  • Big Hearted

Also, Poptropica is giving members a new benefit. If you’re a member, you can count on getting double the amount of credits on the Wheel of Loot from now on.

I find this update a bit odd and useless since, as a member, the amount of credits I have doesn’t affect my gameplay whatsoever. Everything in the store is free for me, so… can I like, donate credits to friends? (New idea Poptropica, get on it 😉 )


And finally, a new ad for Paramount Picture’s upcoming movie, Wonder Park, has surfaced and can be accessed via the island map. Just enter and click on June to start up the game.

It’s a simple click and dodge kind of game — we’ve seen it before. All you have to do is click your mouse to jump and dodge the “chimpanzombies” and other obstacles in your track. (Tip: continuously click your mouse as you would if you were playing Boulder Push on Reality TV Island to stay atop the entire time.)

Simple, right? Once you finish the game, you’ll win a Boomer Follower and a cool Roller Coaster Cart!

Well, that’s it for now! What do you think of this new stuff? It’s not much, but at least it’s something. Thanks for reading, and I’ll talk to you all in the next one… pop on!
