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.

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!

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!

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 poppin’ pets have arrived!

What’s up, Poptropicans? Oh, that’s right the Pet Barn is finally open! Looks like the Poptropica Creators really stuck to their promise. 😀

openpetbarn

As previous sneak peeks have told us, there are five pets available. These include a puppy, a kitten, a bunny, a lizard, and a goat the last three being members only.

Disappointingly, there isn’t much else to do in the pet barn other than adopting a pet and using the pet colorizer to change its color (which is available to everyone!). It is really cute though.

Here are my two pets — Clover the bunny and Ivy the lizard!

Well, that about covers this update. I really like the idea of pets… I’m just hoping we get more customization options in the near future; clothing options would be particularly great, Creators. 😉 Also, additional features for the pets would be cool because right now they’re essentially just followers. So, what are your thoughts? Leave them down in the comments!

Thanks for reading as always. Catch you guys in the next one, pop on!
