Hey Poptropicans! 🎁

It’s time to open the presents! The gift items are as follows: Rudolph Nose (Monday, Dec. 10), Winter Outfit for girls and boys (Tuesday, Dec. 11), and Freeze Ray (Wednesday, Dec. 12). Thanks to Osmium for the pictures below:

If you get a membership before the day is over (in Eastern Standard Time), all 12 of the gifts will be added to your inventory to keep forever.

Now if only Poptropica would remember the non-members among us, too…

🎵 On the seventh day of member gifts, Poptropica gave to me…🎵

Hello, Poptropicans, it’s Lucky Joker here with new stuff to share with you today.

First off, Poptropica has finally updated the Photo Booth since the Halloween update back in October—but, it’s probably not what you’d think. I kind of expected to see some new  holiday props and characters for the season, but I was little disappointed when I discovered that wasn’t the case.

There are 5 new backgrounds that appear to be from a few familiar islands, like Astro-Knights, Mythology, and Wimpy Wonderland (oh look, there’s a winter one!).

It’s safe to assume these new backgrounds will be replacing the good old ones we’re used to since they’re no longer there and these new ones aren’t exactly seasonal. Small update, but still neat in its own right.


Secondly, the third wave of member gifts is coming our way, starting off with some cool Snowboard Gear. Tomorrow (Saturday, the 8th), watch out for the Snowball Toss card, and the next day (Sunday, the 9th), an Elf Follower not too far behind!


And lastly, Home Island has received a full, fun winter makeover! It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas now, wouldn’t you say? ❄️🎄 (Even that LEGO ad tucked away in the corner of the sky, that probably isn’t meant to be visible, is coated in snow… 👀)

So, how are you liking these member gifts so far? And what do you think about the rest of these updates? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section down below. Thanks for reading as always and I’ll talk to you all very soon… pop on!

12 Days of Member Gifts: 6 down, 6 to go

Hey guys, It’s Lucky Joker here with an update on the 12 Days of Member Gifts event going on this month. Thanks to a certain glitcher on the Poptropica Help Chat (PHC), the three next gift items have been revealed!

20181201_180605

If you’re a member, expect a cute Reindeer follower (today’s prize), an Ugly Sweater (12/5), and a super cool Snow Power card (12/6) coming your way! Pictures below courtesy of Osmium:

By the way, if you buy a membership anytime within the month, you’ll get all 12 of the member gifts. How cool is that?

[Update: Sometimes, the body of the Reindeer follower doesn’t quite show every detail. Here’s a pic from PHB reader Shiny B1rd. Still cute, though.]

That’s it for now! Thanks for reading as always, and I’ll talk to you all soon…pop on!

(PS: Why is the photo booth still Halloween themed? 👀)

‘Tis the season to be a member, fa la la la la

How’s it going, Poptropicans? It’s the most wonderful time of the year—the holiday season—and with that, Poptropica has gifted us players with 12 days of all-new gift items, from December 1–12… well, for members anyway.

20181201_180605

We were too late to post about yesterday’s gift, which was an adorable Abominable Snowman follower—but when you login today, you’ll receive a Snowball Cannon. Unfortunately, there have been reports of it causing the game to crash, so use with caution. Pictures below courtesy of Osmium:

Also, thanks to glitcher idk, we know that tomorrow’s gift will be this cool-looking Ski Outfit pictured below along with the previous prizes:

So what do you think of the 12 Days of Member Gifts event? Being a member, of course I’m happy, but I’m hoping non-members will receive some sort of gift as well. Show the non-members some love, Poptropica!

Thanks for reading, and I’ll talk to you all in the next one… pop on!

Something to be thankful for… D.C. Diner is BACK!

How’s it going, Poptropicans? It’s Lucky Joker here, back with Poptropica news!

The classic MiniQuest, D.C. Diner, has returned to Poptropica for a limited time with a new exclusive prize to be won!

Play between now and “16” (perhaps they mean 26?) to win a Magic Hat (that’s the prize 😉 ), and reference our guide if you need any help along the way.


In other news, it looks like Poptropica is having a little Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale of their own! Currently, the 3- and 6-month memberships are discounted by about 20%, going for $8.99 (instead of $10.99) and $15.99 (instead of $19.99) respectively.

In the announcement, Poptropica also hinted at several new updates coming our way (including clubhouses and a revamped friends page!) which might have members-only perks—so all the more reason to get one, right?

This offer will be available until 11:59 PM EST on Monday, November 26, so take advantage of it as soon as you can!


And lastly, the Poptropica Stickers app has received an update with five new stickers for fall and Thanksgiving. (The Halloween ones are still in the app though. Interesting.)

Still, it is only available for iOS devices. To get the app, just head to the App Store and search “Poptropica Stickers” to download it for free!

And that looks to be about it for now. Thanks for reading, as always, and I’ll talk to you all soon… pop on!

Lego Island for all, new gifts for members, and costumes for the dead

Hey, guys! It’s time to leggo of our worries and gift ourselves with the knowledge of new updates. I promise you won’t feel dead after hearing about these!!! 😀 (I’ll see myself out… just kidding.)

The Creators have been busy updating Poptropica with new features and perks for all players. For example, Home Island was given a complete redesign less than two weeks ago, and the Blast-Off Arcade was accidentally released a mere two days ago! And now:

Lego Island has officially been released on Poptropica Original!

lego island map

It’s been almost nine months since the previous island, Greek Sea Odyssey, was released to players on Poptropica Worlds. Now, for the first time in forever, a new island has appeared, and on Poptropica Original nonetheless. We showed you unofficial sneak peeks before, and now you can access Lego Island from the map on Pop Original.

At this point, Lego Island consists of a Main Street scene containing three ads, each advertising a different Lego product. The three ads that are currently on Lego Island are for LEGO Boost, LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu, and LEGO Friends. The ads for Boost and Ninjago have already appeared before on Poptropica Original.

On the far right, you will find the ad for LEGO Boost. All you need to do is watch the video to get a Robot Cat Follower.

The ad to the right is for the LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu series. Go inside and talk to Zane to start the mini-game. Repeatedly click your mouse to jump over the obstacles on the ground, and release to avoid the ones from above.

After completing the mini-game, you will win two awesome prizes: a Shadow Ninja costume and a Dragon Follower!

The ad on the far right is for LEGO Friends. Enter the building and talk to Stephanie to start the mini-game, which is a scavenger hunt. Your goal is to find the eleven items on your checklist.

After finding all eleven items, you will receive two items of your own: a Wind Surfboard and a Wave Runner.

These are the only ads on Lego Island at the moment. A recent post on the Creators’ Blog encouraged fans to check the island often as new items are added. It’s likely that more ads will appear and replace already existing ads on the island as updates come and go. If you’re paid member, you get to keep your prizes even after the ad campaigns end.


Speaking of paid members, new trio of member gifts have arrived just in time for November! As always, members will automatically receive these gifts upon logging into Poptropica Original. This month, members will receive a Wolf Costume, and Sheep Costume, and a Scarecrow Costume.  

november_member_gifts

One thing I want to mention is that these costumes are accessed through the Costumizer. This time, members can pick and choose what pieces of the costume they want to wear, as opposed to the whole costume being put onto the player. (Don’t worry, non-members. You can get the Wolf Costume by using this ASG😉 )  


Last but not least, the Creators’ Blog celebrated Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) with a celebratory post on November 2. The post contained a brief description of the Mexican holiday along with its origins and traditions.

diadelosmuertos

If you like the costumes shown in the picture, you can get them for free in the store. The girls’ costume was designed by our very own Lucky Joker, the winner of Poptropica’s Halloween costume design contest! Be sure to get these costumes before the next store update comes and takes them away to the afterlife…

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!

It’s all tricks & treats in Poptropica!

How’s it going, spooktropicans? It’s Lucky Joker here with a couple of updates to share with you all today!

First off, a new membership benefit has been implemented into the game. Now, members who win items from advertisement games will be able to keep the prizes after the ad disappears!

prizes

Not a huge deal, but still pretty cool nonetheless. I find many of the prizes from the ad games quite amusing. 😛

If you’re not a member, though, don’t worry — the creators say that they’re working on some new stuff for all players expected to launch this year! We’ll see if that happens…

In the meantime, we also have the largest ASG collection you can take advantage of to deck your character in retired ad costumes and lots more!


In other news… with Halloween approaching, it’s the perfect time to create a photo with all the new fun options that have recently been added to the Photo Booth! Check out the few that I made:

And there’s plenty more props and characters where those came from… I guess you’ll have to try it out for yourself. 😉

Plus, you can even have the chance to have your creation featured on the Official Poptropica Instagram account; just post it on Instagram with the hashtag #spookypop!

One more thing: If you’re feeling especially artistic in this spooky season, be sure to participate in this month’s Community Creations. The theme for October is Villains!

That’s all for now, and I’ll talk to you all soon…pop on!
