Bunnies and chickens and friends, oh my!

Hey there, Poptropicans! It’s the middle of April, spring is on its way, and Easter is coming faster than a quick-footed hare. To celebrate, the Creators have updated the Poptropica Store with some new items.

Head over to the store on Poptropica Original and check out 6 new spring-themed costumes and 3 new fun items:

  • Good Bunny
  • Spring Fling
  • Unicorn Girl (members only)
  • Shady Pockets
  • Cool Green
  • Cheesy Slice (members only)
  • Chick Follower
  • Egg Launcher (members only)
  • Bunny Wand

Blue Tooth must have been inspired by these new items, since they posted this cool artwork featuring some of the new stuff. I look forward to seeing more art like this from the Creators in the future!

Speaking of new blogger Blue Tooth, they also wrote a post about making friends in Poptropica. They gave tips on how to befriend other players in the Blast-Off Arcade.

To friend another player, just click on them and select the “Want to be friends?” option. When they agree, you’ll get a confirmation bubble; all you need to do after that is click “OK”. With this information, you’ll become a social butterfly in no time!

That’s all for now. Which new store item is your favorite? Is it the colorful Egg Launcher or the magical Bunny Wand that gives people pink bunny suits? Please tell us in the comments below!

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!

Shops poppin’ up: pet accessories and store accessibility

How are you, Poptropicans? It’s Lucky Joker here with TWO incredible updates! Let’s pop right on into it.

Firstly, pet accessories are here! There’s an array of cute and funny accessories for your pet(s) in the all-new pet store. You can access the pet store by going into the Pet Barn and clicking the green credit icon at the bottom left-hand corner of your screen.

The items are divided into four categories as seen below — head, face, body, and eyes. Here is the current stock:

Also, Poptropica recently brought us a new store format so that it lasts past the pulling of the plug for Flash in 2020. Like the pet one, there are also categories to divide the items — costumes, followers, powers, pranks, and miscellaneous.

I’m totally a fan of this new design, but there are a few small issues I take with the update in general. One, items cost even with membership — unlike before, when they were free. (I guess that wheel update from last month is going to be coming in handy after all.) Two, a lot of items are members only. Like, A LOT. More than half as a matter of fact. I think both members and non-members deserve a little better.

To close out this post on a positive note, Poptropica teased at the possibility of a couple of islands coming our way in their latest post. I’m super excited about it!

So what do you guys think of all of this? Likes, dislikes, ideas — whatever it is, leave it down in the comments below! Talk to you guys later, thanks for reading.

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!

Shop Update: Brand-New Winter Fashions

What’s up, Poptropicans? It’s about time! We didn’t get a shop update last month, so after two months of waiting, did Poptropica deliver? Well, kind of…

This month’s stock isn’t very non-member-friendly in fact, 17 of the 28 cards are exclusive to members, which is a large majority. The current stock includes:

Gold Cards

  • Male Rock Star 2 (members only)
  • Female Rock Star 2 (members only)
  • Male Wrestling Gear – Poptropolis 2013 (members only)
  • Female Wrestling Gear – Poptropolis 2013 (members only)
  • Gamer Dude
  • Gamer Girl
  • Multiverse
  • Biome Hats – Poptropica Realms (members only)
  • Mini Dr. Hare Follower (members only)
  • Dr. Hare (members only)
  • Fairy Queen (members only)
  • Realms Builder – Poptropica Realms (members only)
  • X-Ray Visor – Virus Hunter Island (members only)
  • Shrink Ray (members only)
  • Snow Fall
  • Winter Blast PopGum

Costumes

  • Winter Boy 1 (members only)
  • Winter Boy 2
  • Winter Boy 3
  • Winter Boy 4 (members only)
  • Winter Boy 5
  • Winter Boy 6 (members only)
  • Winter Girl 1
  • Winter Girl 2 (members only)
  • Winter Girl 3 (members only)
  • Winter Girl 4
  • Winter Girl 5 (members only)
  • Winter Girl 6

Despite the fact that most items are members only, I do appreciate the brand new winter outfits and the integration of the gender-specific costumes for all genders (i.e. all of the above winter outfits are available regardless of your character’s gender). Just like Worlds, it offers more customization options for certain handheld items and accessories.

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

We just missed announcing the Black Friday-only deal of $1.99 on 1-month membership (sorry!) but you can still get the 3- and 6-month membership deals until just before midnight Eastern time on Monday!


And there you have it, folks—the November store update. What do you think of the current stock? Are there any costumes, followers, or powers you’d like to see added to the store?

Feel free to leave your suggestions down in the comments of this post, or on Poptropica’s Instagram—they just might listen!

One more thing: Still about a week left to enter some delicious artwork into Community Creations! This month’s theme is food. 🦃🥔🌽

The “Lucky” Poptropica Halloween Costume Contest Winner!

Hello, everyone! It’s Lucky Joker here with the result of the Halloween Costume Design Contest on Poptropica’s Instagram! As previously mentioned, the winning costume will be added to the store in October, in the next store update.

Without wasting any more time, the winning costume is… Day of the Dead” by… well… myself, Lucky Joker! 😀

(Flattering picture, am I right? I apologize for the not-so-good quality. xP)

Although the Mexican holiday is its own tradition apart from Halloween itself, I thought it would be the perfect time to shed some light on another culture, since they both share the same date.

But enough about my costume—I also wanted to show you guys some of my favorite entries that also would’ve made great costumes in the store! Here they are:

And there’s plenty more where those came from! Check out the rest at the #PoptropicaHalloween tag, and I’ll talk to you all soon. Pop on!
