Into the known: what December has in store

Hey Poptropicans, it’s Slanted Fish here to announce a dazzling new homepage graphic, a store update, and the next member gift! Let’s get started.

First, if you head on over to Poptropica, you’ll find a new image on the homepage featuring a host of hyped-up Poptropicans and animals, including an ostrich racer and broom-flying wizard, all on an otherworldly planet with the alien trees from the arcade!

Spectacular, huh? Who knows, maybe the Creators will make another wallpaper out of it…


Log in and you’ll see December’s monthly update laid in store, featuring familiar items like the Realms Builder, Back Lot Island Clapboard, and Hypnotic, as well as old holiday costumes like the Angel, Snow Fall, and Winter Blast PopGum (the latter two are for members only).

A few costumes are repeats from last month’s store update. Oddly, the “Pranks” and Followers” sections of the store have been wiped completely clean this time around.

But the best part is that prices have dropped significantly, even on the repeated costumes! While many items used to be in the 250–350 credits range, you can now snag many from the current stock for about 75–150 credits. Happy shopping!


And last but not least, the next item in the 12 Days of Member Gifts is here, and it’s Penguin Sled Riders to match the cute baby penguins that have popped up in the latest Home Island makeover! Awww.

That’s all for this post. See you next time, Poptropicans! ☃️

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Warmest greetings, Poptropicans. It’s Lucky Joker here with the second wave of members gifts as part of Poptropica’s 12 Days of Member Gifts event.

The three most recent items members have received are a Snow Car, a Santa Beard, and a Unicorn Horn (which looks similar to a couple of unicorn horns we’ve gotten in the past, but still cool nonetheless).

By the way, if you purchase a membership anytime within the month, you’ll get all 12 of the exclusive items. How wonderful!


Also, I’m here to show you the new Home Island makeover! It’s not as decorated as I would’ve hoped for December, but it’s still pretty nice. I quite like the snowfall and the grab-a-snowball igloo station.

But yeah, other than that, it’s not much… just wintery piles of snow, the occasional baby penguin, and even a few remaining fall leaves.

That’s it for now it folks! What do you think of the new Home Island and the member gifts we’ve gotten so far?

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

Not Trolling: It's 12 Days of Member Gifts!

Seasons’ greetings, Poptropicans! It’s Lucky Joker here, and guess what?

It’s that time of year again. 12 Days of Member Gifts is back! This year, if you’re a member, you’ll receive one gift each day, every day, for the first twelve days of December.

The first gift arrived yesterday and it was an interesting hairdo, Ice Hair — but when you login today, you’ll receive a super cute Snow Baby Toy.

And according to the Pop Creators, we have even better gifts to look forward to. Perhaps consider asking for a Poptropica membership for Christmas/the holiday season this year! 🙂


In other news, an ad for the all-new season of Netflix’s Trolls: The Beat Goes On! can be found on various islands. All you’ve got to do to win yourself a Poppy Follower is watch the short video. Woohoo!

That’s all there is for today, folks. Thanks for reading, and I’ll talk to you all in the next one… pop on!

Turkey boy, Frozen decor & more!

Hello, everyone! Gentle Dolphin here with a delicious helping of Poptropica news! Let’s begin today’s story with a warm appetizer before we get to the main course, which is strangely frozen. Hmm…

On the Creators’ Blog, there is a post reminding players that the November member gifts are here! Members will definitely be thankful for this month’s gifts, which certainly fit the Thanksgiving theme: a wearable Turkey Head, a rideable Turkey Rider, and a fireable Gravy Blaster!

Nov_memb_billboard

If you’re an active member, these items will be automatically added to your inventory upon logging into Poptropica this month. If you’re not a member, do not fear. The post also mentions that a shop update will be coming very soon, so keep an eye out for that!


Now that we have finished our Thanksgiving appetizer, it’s time to move on to the main dish. A lot of us expected Poptropica to make promotions for “Frozen 2”. What we didn’t expect, however, is how much they would end up promoting it. Strap yourselves in, folks! It’s going to be a long ride!

Let’s start things simple with a basic island ad. While you are visiting various islands, you’ll come across a Frozen 2 ad block. Watch the short trailer to get your very own Olaf Follower! Now you can explore all of Poptropica with everyone’s favorite talking snowman (just don’t go somewhere too hot, though).

After your adventures with Olaf, you may be in the mood to decorate your clubhouse. Although there are no new furniture items in the store, you will find seven new posters in your clubhouse inventory (six for “Frozen 2”, and one for “Polly Pocket”)! Here is what they look like on the club wall:Frozen2_Posters

As if prizes and posters weren’t enough, the Poptropica team went above and beyond with what is possibly their biggest in-game advertisement this year. Frozen fever must have spread to the cosmos, because the Blast-Off Arcade has been given a “Frozen 2” makeover!

Instead of flying to an intergalactic planet, you will now wander into a scenic autumn forest. You can climb the trees and bounce on leaves as a majestic orchestra plays in the background. Here’s a look at the updated common room in its entirety. Pretty cool, eh?Frozen2_CommonRoom

It’s clear that Poptropica is going all out to promote “Frozen 2”. At this rate, they may as well dedicate an entire island to the film! Anyway, what do you think of this month’s member gifts? Do you plan on seeing “Frozen 2” in theaters, and how do you feel about all of these advertisements for it? Share your thoughts in the comments below!

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!

Spoopy members gifts for October!

What’s up, Spooptropicans? It’s Lucky Joker here and as you all know, October has officially started, and that means the Halloween season is upon us!

What cooler way to celebrate the ghostly festivities with new, awesome members gifts?! The items you’ll get if you’re a member (or purchase a membership any time within the month) this time around are as follows:

  • Bat Attack
  • Witch’s Broom Rider
  • Ghost Followers (three variations available!)

I love this time of year and I absolutely love these new items as well! But what do you think? Sound off in the comments below!

As always, thank you all SO much for reading! I’ll talk to you guys in the next one. Stay awesome, and pop on!

Go wild with flash-y gifts and SUI common rooms

Hey, guys! This is Gentle Dolphin with not one, not two, but three bits of Poptropica news! Let’s get started with a wild set of items!

First, the September member gifts are here! Like last month’s gifts, these items are themed around the latest island, Reality TV: Wild Safari.

During the month of September, members will receive Reality TV Star Followers (featuring, from left to right: Mandy Screams, Torta Piccola, and Bopbop), a Cheetah Head Rider hat, and a baby hippo.

If you are an active member during the month of September, these items will be automatically added to your inventory upon logging into Poptropica. If you’re interested in receiving these gifts as well as having early access to Reality TV: Wild Safari, look into purchasing a membership.


Second, the common rooms have been given the SUI treatment! Not only do these rooms now have bigger screens and sound effects, but they also have the chat feature from the Blast-Off Arcade. Just click on the icons on the bottom-left corner of the screen to either speak with words or express yourself with emojis.

Another similarity to the Blast-Off Arcade is the inclusion of game stations. Each common room is supplied with a game station where players can battle each other in minigames. Have fun!

While checking out the common rooms, I came across a strange character in Timmy Failure Island‘s common room. Clicking on him causes three thought bubbles to appear over your Poptropican’s head, like whenever you talk to NPCs in the game.

Slanted Fish says that the dialogue is used as a stand-in for testing things in the game, as seen in some behind-the-scenes images by some glitchers. We’re not sure why this character is in a common room, though. Anyway, feel free to stop by and strike up a conversation with him in between your adventures!


Finally, there’s a brand new screen for when players need to activate Flash before playing Poptropica. This particular screen stands out from the previous two because it includes a short video demonstrating how to allow Flash to run on the site. Pretty cool!

What do you think of this month’s member gifts? Will you be visiting the updated common rooms sometime soon? Share your thoughts in the comments below!

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!

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.

Lucky Joker looking fabulous

I think all three of these member gifts are pretty cool and funny, but what about you? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Well, that’s all folks! Thank you for reading as always and I’ll talk to you soon. Pop on!
