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!
Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Dangerous Shadow. Enjoy!
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!
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!
Hello, everyone! It’s time check out some new Poptropica updates regarding drawing, interior decorating, and kidnapping. Need context for that last sentence? Keep on reading!
First, the Creators announced a new mini quest coming to Poptropica. While they didn’t say much regarding the story, they did gladly share a thumbnail sketch. It shows Amelia and a black cat taking a selfie while two other characters are in the middle of a magical baking mishap.
The woman with curly hair and glasses looks familiar. In fact, her likeness is featured alongside Amelia and (formerly) Xavier on a set of statues on Home Island. It looks like we’ll finally get to learn the identity of this studious sorceress. 🧙♀️📚
Five new furnishings have graced the clubhouse store! Players can decorate their virtual homes with a Poptropica flag (100 credits), a set of lighting panels (75 credits), a summer wreath (150 credits), and an oil diffuser (100 credits). Meanwhile, members can make their clubhouses extra colorful with the LED fan (150 credits). Here’s a picture I took of the new items in my clubhouse.
A new video showed up on the official Poptropica TikTok account, but it also made an appearance in Pop’s latest Instagram story. This new video highlights some of the more problematic elements of our favorite villains, particularly the fact that they all share kidnapping tendencies. Here are a few stills as an example.
Last and certainly not least, Golden Wolf returned to the Creators’ Blog to share more of her art. In her latest guest post, GW showcased fan art of myself, PHB founder Slanted Fish, and fellow writer Smart Icicle! Thank you so much, Golden Wolf! ❤️🥰❤️🥰
GW also mentioned that, every month, she will draw an anime character as a Poptropican and share it on her future guest posts. As an example, she drew Sakura Haruno from Naruto, which was featured in Poptropica’s July Costume Contest video compilation. Which anime character do you want to see drawn in the Poptropica style?
That’s all I have for you today. What do you think the new mini quest will be about? Which villains should be called out next? Let us know in the comments below!
Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Invisible Ring. Enjoy!
Hey guys. Just chillin’ against this wall here. This is it. Looks like I made it to the final zone of my Worlds clubhouse: the most mysterious, spookiest, and unpredictable zone that’s been giving me the chills since the beginning. I’ll try to keep it cool as best I can, but on the inside, I’m really freakin’ out. But I guess the only way to face this fear and kill the suspense is to open that door, so here goes nothing…
INVISIBLE RING: Oh no… It’s an invasion! There’s an army of robots in my room! …That’s it, I’m outta here! I shouldn’t have come! …wait a minute, how did all of these robots even get here?
ROBOTS: Scanning… Facial recognition confirmed. Welcome, Invisible Ring. We are at your command.
RING: O-kaay…. What’s going on here?
Robots: Scanners indicate that Invisible Ring does not recognize us. Elapsed time since Invisible Ring’s last visit in this room is three years. Humans are subject to all-but-core memory loss within this time span. Let us refresh your memory and show you around, Invisible Ring.
RING: Ok. Thanks, robots!
RING: Hey… Nice game room! Is this where you hung out all this time I was gone?
ROBOTS: Affirmative. Entertainment levels here are pleasantly high. We could stay in here forever if we wanted to… Do you want to play Space Complainers?
RING: If it’s all the same to you, I think I would rather continue the tour.
RING: Whoa! What is THIS called?
ROBOTS: The hotline center, where we make our most urgent calls. …Hello? Pizza to go?
RING: You’ve been ordering pizzas all this time while I was gone?! How in the world are you paying for them all?!
ROBOTS: We aren’t! The delivery rule is 30 minutes or it’s free. And they never get the pizzas here within 30 minutes!
RING: Ah, that makes sense.
RING: Looks like the kitchen is over here. Wow, that is a LOT of carrots. Is that all we have to eat? No wonder you bunny droids order pizzas all the time.
ROBOT: Quick! Take cover!
RING: What’s going on? …and what are you doing?
ROBOT: Preparing for the battle over on the right. …Take that, Dr. Hare!
RING: A battle? That doesn’t look like a fight, that just looks like a couple of bunnies jumping on the bed over there! …Ooh! That gives me a great idea! Time to hit those drums!
ROBOT: Good thinking. Sound the alarm to attack the carrot fort!
Sound the alarm and attack the carrot fort? …Weird imagination. I guess three years of goofing off in a clubhouse will do that.
It’s drummin’ time! A-one, two, three, four,
Two bunny robots jumping on the bed! One’s about to land on the other’s head!
I am not the doctor, but here’s what I said: No more rab-bots jumping on the bed!
ROBOTS: “Get to the root of the sit-uation, and find Dr. Hare’s top-secret sta-tion…
You gotta find the card keys and all the carrots, to save the good ol’ island of 24 Carrot—”
RING: Ok, where is THAT music coming from?
ROBOTS: Scanning… Rabbit Robots located in the upper hallway.
RING: Oh, yeah… They must have found the musical section in there. I didn’t know the robots liked music!
ROBOTS: The instruments were an exquisite touch. Your decorating skills have amazed us all. We all rate every one of your clubhouse tours as a 100% success!
RING: Wow! I’m glad you feel that way because I was just thinking the same thing! …Wait, how did you know about my other clubhouse tours? …Oh yeah, you guys have a computer in the arcade room!
ROBOTS: I detect that a lightbulb has lit inside your tiny head. Could that mean you are now up to something?
RING: You know it.
ROBOTS: Does this mean you will add more stuff to the PHB?
RING: Maybe… or maybe I’ll get back to arts and crafts and movie-making. I think I’ll stay here and make a plan on what to do next.
ROBOTS: You picked an exceptional place. This is just the kind of workshop that Dr. Hare had!
RING: Interesting… I guess this makes me the next evil genius at work here, huh? WHO’S BAD! Ha-ha, just kidding! …Well, great talk, but I gotta end the tour and get to work on my—
ROBOTS: “Find a crazy rabbit like Dr. Hare, but we gotta warn you that ya better beware!
He’s the funniest villain we’ve ever had, but if you just ain’t careful, he’s GONNA BE MAD…”
RING: UGH… Will someone please make those musicians STOP? I can’t focus like this!
ROBOTS: With pleasure! They are beginning to annoy all of us!
RING: On second thought, how about one last song? Y’know, to wrap things up?
ROBOTS: You heard her, rabbots! A-one, two, three-
“For the last song that we’re gonna sing, Let’s give three cheers for Invisible Ring! All 7 of her clubhouse tours complete, They’re exciting and amazing to the edge of your seat! Thanks for joining’ ‘em all, and we hope you had fun, But our scanners say that it’s just begun! If you have a comment, don’t forget to send! Just let us know what you think! THE END!”
…Well done, Rabbots! Thank you everybody and good night!
Hope this ends my clubhouse saga on a good note. I think it does, both figuratively AND literally!
Hope you enjoyed this guest post by Invisible Ring. If you did, you might also enjoy the rest of her clubhouse tour collection: from Poptropica Original, her regular,Castle, Party, and Dreamy rooms; and from Poptropica Worlds, her Adventurous and Summer rooms, which led to the Hare-y home you just saw. Consider sharing yours, too!
