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!

The Gifts That Would Be For Members Only

What’s up, Poptropicans? It’s Lucky Joker here with this month’s wintery member gifts and an advertisement.

If you’re currently a member, you’ll receive three winter styles upon logging in. Boys will receive outfits called Frosty, Ice, and Cool, and girls will receive outfits called MeowToasty, and Snugly.

Remember, if you purchase a membership any time within January, you’ll obtain all the member’s gifts (corresponding to your character’s gender).


Also, an ad for the upcoming movie, The Kid Who Would Be King (which premieres on January 25), can be found on various islands. Home Island or 24 Carrot would be your best bet.

There’s no game this time, but there are prizes. To get them, all you have to do is watch the short video trailer.

The prizes you’ll earn are King Arthur’s Sword and an Owl Transformation.

So, are you going to see The Kid Who Would Be King? What do you think about this month’s member gifts? Leave your thoughts in the comments!

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

Rudolph, the richest reindeer, has some very shiny gifts 🦌🔴

Hey Poptropicans! 🎁

The last of the “12 Days of Member Gifts” are upon us! In case you missed it, check out the first, second, and third waves of gifts in our previous posts. And now…

20181201_180605

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 now, all 12 of the gifts will be added to your inventory to keep forever. (Update: This is still applicable even after Dec. 12! Perhaps it’ll last the whole month?)

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!
