Catch some Crazy Costumes and Clubhouses 🤪🎩🏠

Howdy, Poptropicans! It’s almost time to goof off because Goofball Island, the second 2020 Dream Island winner, will be released in a mere two days! Get silly and get ready to save this colorful island from a monochrome fate! 🤪🔍

To celebrate, Adventure Outfitters stocked up on some new items ranging from stylish to silly. The costume gallery features a new fashionable fall look: the Frosty Flannel. All players can purchase this grey get-up for 250 credits.

In stark contrast to this subdued look, the rest of the store boasts a wide array of wacky articles fitting for the upcoming release of Goofball Island. Our returning items are the various fast food costumes, the autumn clubhouse décor, and the Pie Pal Follower. There are also three new items: the Rawr-in Hat (100 credits), the Eye See You googly eyes (100 credits), and the Hatters Gonna Hat cuckoo clock hat (250 credits).


Think some goofy gear is enough to build anticipation for Goofball island? Heh heh… WRONG!!! The Pop Creators also invited players to join the Goofy Clubhouse Challenge! Players are tasked with creating the wackiest clubhouse with the only limit being their imaginations and their in-game wallets. The homeowners of the three nuttiest abodes will win an unspecified amount of credits.

Once you’re done decorating, go to the submissions page and enter either a short video of your clubhouse or your account username so the Creators can take a gander themselves. Act fast because this challenge ends on Monday, November 22, at 8pm PST.


While you deck your dwellings with daffy decorations, don’t forget about November’s ongoing costume contest. You can enter your outfit designs until Friday, November 19th, at 8pm PST. Maybe you could design a bonkers costume based on Goofball Island? The possibilities are endless!


Now let’s check out some social media shenanigans! The Creators made a Youtube short all about dressing up our beloved pets, which is appropriately accompanied by “Who Let The Dogs Out” by Baha Men.

Over on Instagram, the Creators shared some more awesome fan content! There’s plenty of cool stuff from Poptropican doodles to Popsona drawings to poppin’ dank memes.

That’s all for now. Are you looking forward to Goofball Island’s release? Do you think it will be a laugh-out-loud joyride or a foolish folly? Will you get into the silly spirit and dress up yourself and your clubhouse? Let us know in the comments below.

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!

Flowers and Fall Furnishings 🍁

Hello Poptropicans! As we await the release of Goofball Island, I have a few small updates to report. Hope you have your pumpkin spice and cute sweaters ready (that is if you don’t live in the Southern Hemisphere or certain exceptionally warm areas, heh)!

This store update brings back some cozy outfits, as well as the new Denim Delight! Mission Atlantis merch is also still available.

The clubhouse has also got some new fall decor, including a Coffee Maker, Fall Wreath, Pumpkin Bean Bag, and Autumn Leaf Garland. If I’ll be honest, I think a fall forest themed clubhouse background would look so pretty with some of these!


There’s also a new ad for the upcoming Disney movie “Encanto.” It can be found on Mythology Island or accessed through the map.

Upon watching the trailer, you’ll receive the Capybara Follower and Flower Power rewards! This Flower Power is slightly different from the OG one though, with the flowers in a similar style as the movie’s.

And that about wraps it up! Have you done any fall decorating in your clubhouses or IRL? And are you excited for Encanto? I haven’t been watching many movies lately, but it looks interesting — and very pretty!

Store styles up for grabs, other surprises Under Wraps 🎁🕺

What’s popping, Poptropicans? We’ve got flannel flair, mummy madness, and sidebar snippets to see. Let’s pop right in!

A new week brings another refresh to Adventure Outfitters, and this time, Amelia’s brought out a new Flannel Tank (200 credits) for the fall vibes. We also have the return of the classic Fairy Queen costume (350 credits, members only). See the full stock on the Creators’ Blog »

But wait, there’s more! *inhale* The clubhouse store is also stocking some new gear, and don’t blink, ’cause we got pink.

New decor includes the Daisy Printed Tapestry (100 credits), Rocking Gamer Chair (150), Square Storage Ottoman (75), Pink School Backpack (75), Inhale & Exhale Wall Prints (100), and a College-Style Electric Scooter (100). Whatchu think? *exhale*

On the subject of store stuff, don’t forget that today’s the deadline for the Baron’s Red October costume design contest! You have until Tuesday, September 14th at 8pm PST/11 pm EST to submit your creation(s) for a chance to get your design in the game. Good luck!


In other news, there’s a new video ad with prizes from Disney Channel’s new movie, Under Wraps! To watch it, click on its icon on the map or hop on over to 24 Carrot Island. After the viewing, you’ll get an I’m A Mummy costume and the Dancing Mummy Follower!

Pressing the spacebar makes two different things happen. Wearing the costume allows you to dance, and using the follower allows Harold the mummy to dance. Use both prizes simultaneously for best results. 🕺🕺


Speaking of video, over on the Pop Creators’ Blog, there’s a new sidebar section dedicated to Poptropica videos! Like the video at the bottom corner of the game screen, this little area loops short clips of scenes from the game that you might also find on their YouTube channel.

It’s certainly an interesting addition, and one that makes more sense being placed here than on the game screen, where there’s already plenty of movement going on. What with TikTok virality and now this, it looks like Poptropica’s popping off with the vids!

One last thing to note: the Creators’ Blog has been dropping some hints about birthday celebrations coming up, including something that involves us, the players. What might it be? We’ll have to see…

Keep an eye out for upcoming news about special events celebrating Poptropica’s 14th birthday and most importantly, YOU!

Clubhouse Tour: Dangerous Shadow 🏡

Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Dangerous ShadowEnjoy!

Hi! The name’s Dangerous Shadow, and imma show you my Poptropica clubhouse!

Let’s do the front entrance. So first, we have a totally awesome skateboard (though I fell and hurt my knee when it tipped over). There’s my diamond skull saying ”Hello” — it’s ever so kind!(lol) And then there’s my bag and cap on that smiley-face-whatever-thing.

Hm, next we have… Oh! The two parts of the living room! There’s the fireplace, which isn’t on right now because it’s summer. Then we have a really nice looking couch. They’re really fluffy, too! And there’s a little stool with a plant cat! Man, it’s cute.

On the other side, I also have a moon chair (I mean I think it’s a moon chair, it looks like one). There’s a very comfy hammock there, and a TV. And then there’s that unicorn thing… I’m pretty sure it’s a pillow, if not, let me know in the comments down below!

Now let’s go to my pets’ room — ugh, what is happening with my eyes there? So anyway, my kitten is named Toast! You can’t see it in the pic, but it’s just a cat with grey fur and a toast head.

My puppy, which you can see there, is named Dino. Here is my dog’s little house. He loves to play with the ball in there. There is some pet food in that bowl, which the pets share, and nearby is my cat’s little home-y kinda thing (I’m not doing well at remembering the names 😦 ). And there is her yarn, which she adores.

Let’s move onto the kitchen now… :OOO Someone hid my chocolate cake behind the bread basket, and I was trying to find it — I wanted my chocolate cake! *jumps up to get it* Almost there! Lol, to tell you the truth, I just never got a table, and I don’t know why! But I do have a fridge, drink machines, and food.

Let’s move onto my bedroom. It’s my favorite part of my whole clubhouse! Okay, I couldn’t get everything into one picture, so I took two. So I have my very comfy bed, with my penguin toy animal holding my phone—hey! What are you doing with it! *penguin just stares* Oh, wait. It’s a toy. Toys don’t talk.

I have a bookshelf. I love love love love to read! I have my grumpy-looking owl lamp there, with a chest full of more books and a couple more toys. I have more books on top of the bookshelf, as well as some lanterns — at least, I think they are lanterns. On the wall I have a pink moon decoration and some pictures of my friends. And I needed those beautiful light-up trees. Okay, onto the other part!

It’s my… gaming station! There’s a gaming chair. It’s pretty comfy. I have two speakers giving off some “Keeping It Loud” vibes. There’s my gaming computer, and you can see there’s that hanging chair with that orange pillow, and of course another one of those light-up trees.

Next we have what is kinda like my chillaxing/calm room. I have my (one) window in here, my music thingy majingy and a huge rainbow beanbag, plus my basketball stuff (okay, basketball isn’t really calming — I just put it there XD). I have my phoenix here too. Say hi, Feather! Oh, he’s in a calm/chillaxing mood. Better close our eyes with him — Dino, I said, “Close your eyes with him!” Hm, Dino ain’t listening to me today.

Well, that’s the end! Also, if you’d like to friend me, my username is: foxamazing1 (you don’t have to tell me, I know it sounds silly). Byeeeeee!

Clubhouse, Glitches

Comebacks for credits, club edits 💰🎥

Heyo, Poptropicans! This week in Pop news: cop some credits, clubhouse vibes, cakewalks, and even a mysterious console. Pop in for a peek!

First off, island completions are awarding credits again! The feature inexplicably disappeared last month, but a little Pop Petition might’ve helped bring it back. The Creators’ Blog announced this in a post that promised more shopping to come and gave tips on how to rack up more credits. (But hey, the PHB’s got you covered with even more ways.)


Next up is a little TikTok on the clock (’cause the party don’t stop). The latest short video to drop from Pop shows a Creator decking out a clubhouse with plenty of homey decor. It’s even got music!

And if you’re like me and live in a country where TikTok is blocked, fret not—you can still view the vid on the Creators’ Instagram story.


Speaking of sweet vids, the Creators also dropped a video playthrough of Disney’s Magic Bake-off ad game! In case you missed it, check out the PHB’s coverage of this cake-making limited time event.


Last but not least, on Wednesday, some intrepid PHB readers shared an odd sighting: the Mjölnir, aka the Realms hammer, made an appearance in the lower-left corner of the menu screen! Clicking on it brought up a small window on the upper-left corner known as the dev console, a tool for game developers that shouldn’t normally be available to players.

Of course, the dev console didn’t reveal any significant findings to us plebes who don’t know how to hack it, and it soon disappeared from view. Still, a strange sight to behold! Now if we could bring back Realms, that would be something…

That’s all for now, though. Keep on popping on, Poptropicans!
