Clubhouse Tour: Silver Tiger 🏡

Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Silver Tiger. Enjoy!

Hello Poptropica fans everywhere! My name is Silver Tiger. I am a newer player to Poptropica, but have learned a lot and been inspired by the Poptropica Help Blog… so I decided to contribute to it. Here we go, welcome to my first Poptropica clubhouse tour!

Alright, how about we start this off by taking a quick right to my puppy playland. This is where my slightly spoiled husky puppy named Jet spends his time! Let’s see, he has his own special puppy bowl, puppy food, puppy bone, spacious puppy mini house, puppy night light, and pretty much everything in my house! Maybe slightly spoiled isn’t the right word…

Okay, now to the left! Over here is my ice cream machine, also known as: sugar rush, anyone? Also my comfy chair and my pictures of my invisible friends are located here too. Basically this is where I go to hang out. WHAT IS THAT?! Oh, yeah, my collection of super villain action figures are here too. Phew, just action figures! But just in case they come alive, I have my camera and Amelia to keep an eye on them.

Above me is my bedroom. My warm pink bed and my collection of Harry Potter books are here, so I can just sit in bed and binge-read all night! Also notice my three stylish night lights. No scary night monsters are sneaking up on me!

If you go up again, you come to my workout area. I can play football, basketball, volleyball, and soccer. Oh, just in case you’re wondering, I have a basketball hoop over to the left but it was hard to include it in my screenshot. My punching bag is here too, so I can get super buff. To stay hydrated, I have my own water dispenser. And last but not least, Steve, my warrior suit of armor is here to remind me that when playing sports, you must be valiant!  

Here is my garden! Does anyone know the names of these plants? I only know the cactus and palm tree. One thing I wish is that Poptropica would have more jungle-like plants for sale in the clubhouse shop because it would be fun to add a rainforest feel to the place. It would be really cool. And I am not just saying this because I want to yell “Tarzan?!” every time I walk in!

So now our last stop is my gaming floor. Here I can play Poptropica or blog to my heart’s content. Then I can take a break by staring at my fake jellyfish named Strawberry and Blueberry, or by riding on my hoverboard. If I get thirsty, I can grab a cup full of ice cold slushie to soothe my thirst. 

Well, that’s my tour! Since I have never blogged before I would really appreciate feedback. If you all have any tips or ideas to make my future blogs better, feel free to tell me in the comments! Thanks!

Hope you enjoyed this guest post by Silver Tiger. If you did, you might also enjoy other Poptropica clubhouse tours we’ve shared here on the PHB!

Adventurous Poptropica Worlds House Tour: Invisible Ring 🏡

Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Invisible Ring. Enjoy!

Hey everybody! Surprised to see me? After my complete collection of Poptropica clubhouse tours, I wasn’t sure I was going to post anything else here. But when I looked at the comments section of my last tour, I was suggested to try Poptropica Worlds next, so here I am! 

Like with Poptropica Original, I gave my Worlds clubhouse a recent makeover. I made a video of what my Worlds house looked like before I changed it, so it can be compared with my tours. What do you think?

It’s time for me to get down from this swingset and get into my clubhouse!

So this is what my clubhouse on Poptropica Worlds looks like, huh? Hmmm… I like the lighthouse painting and aquarium, but I wonder about that map. I can’t quite put my finger on it…but I think it looks just like the map of Skullduggery Island!

Speaking of skullduggery, I think I want to watch a pirate movie!

…oh no, not again! Do I not have a remote for this TV either?? I have a bone to pick with whoever is in charge of all the clubhouse TVs. If we don’t get remotes, there should at least be an on/off button on our TVs. Otherwise, how the heck are we supposed to watch ‘em?!

Oh, well. Moving up to the second floor… hey, it’s dark up here! …wait a minute, it’s dark out there, too! This place is REALLY giving me the creeps…

Oh, look, a door. Normally, I wouldn’t think twice about going in that door and seeing what’s inside, but not this time! I’m NOT looking for trouble around here. I’ll use the rope over there and move up to the third floor instead.

Holy smokes! Is this the top floor of my clubhouse? It’s incredible! It looks just like an ancient fortress or the inside of a warship or… something that’s mysterious and awesome. It feels like I just traveled back in time!

I like how that Athena statue is pointing right at that map! I can almost hear her tell me, “Go forth, young warrior!”

Ok, I’m ready to go forth and open this door — Aw, snap, it’s locked! Open Sesame! …Doggone it, it won’t open! Maybe these musical instruments will help… no? Too bad I don’t have my reed pipe with me, I bet that would’ve opened the door!

And on this side of the museum… it doesn’t feel like that adventure hallway over there.

I think this feels more like a warrior hallway. There sure is a lot of Viking stuff on the walls, and it looks like this knight won’t let me through that door. Not that it matters, though, it’s locked anyway. Perhaps I’ll just sit here for a minute and finish sightseeing. Then I’ll keep exploring!

I’ll just drop down like a ninja and… GERONIMO! Woohoo! Perfect landing right on the bouncy chair! WHEEEE!

That was fun. Hey, wow! Look at that! This is COMPLETELY different than that dark hallway over there. I bet whatever is behind that door is gonna be just as great as what’s out here! But I’ll have to come back to it later. I’m not quite done with my tour yet.

Another garden? Cool! If I buy more plants and trees, I can make another indoor jungle to explore! It seems sort of controversial to pair it with the skyline painting and rocket lantern up there, but then again, I can pretend I’m on a cross-country adventure! Yeah!

…This could make a great movie. I should’ve taken the movie director from my first clubhouse tour with me.

I’m back where I started already? Wow. That was quick. But why am I surprised? I know for a fact that Poptropica Worlds’ clubhouses are years older than the Poptropica Original clubhouses. I bet that’s why these Worlds clubhouses are that much smaller.

What am I going to do with my two bonus rooms on the second floor? I’d better root through my closet and think of something quick! …um…

Thanks for joining me, hope you enjoyed my tour, and I’ll be back soon to share the other two parts of my Worlds clubhouse tour! See ya!

Hope you enjoyed this guest post by Invisible Ring. If you did, you might also enjoy her many other Poptropica clubhouse tours, such as this dreamy one!

Brand new screen with character and a Costumizer controversy

Hey there, Poptropicans! Yesterday, the Creators gave us a sneak peek of a new “Character Screen” coming to Poptropica, and it is officially here!

With this update, you can mix and match individual costume elements from any costume. Though this may seem similar to how costumes already worked, this new feature allows it all to happen in one place without having to find a new costume each time.

There are three tabs that you can browse: your costumes/items, your closet (members can save up to 30 outfits), and your pets.

Have a lot of items? You can also sort through those items by outfits, powers, pranks, followers, misc, prizes, and gifts if you don’t want to see them all at once. A similar sorting system for your pet includes pet, body, eyes, facial, and hat.

More than that, the Colorizer is now easily accessible on the same page! With it, you can change your hair and skin color without the extra hassle. And it even works on your pet!

The character screen can be found in your drop down in the top right, just above your map. And, as you can see, the items option has been removed.

Messing around with the new features so far, I will say it is nice to have everything in one location. People generally seem to view this update in a positive light, particularly regarding the return of the Colorizer, but it is not without flaws.

First off, the character screen has already been very glitchy for me. For example, most of my closet items beyond the first page are inaccessible, despite them showing up as available when first loading. The screen has also frozen for me numerous times already, and some of my items are totally blank. Was this update rushed like other projects have been in the past? Has anyone had similar issues?

It is also frustrating that some of my most recently purchased items appear at the very bottom/last screen of my inventory, making them difficult to find.

Another grievance I have is the lack of a “cancel” button when choosing accessories. Often times, I will accidentally click on an outfit part or dislike how it looks, but when I take it off I am also missing the accessory I was previously wearing. This wasn’t a big problem for me in the past.

That brings me to another big concern for fans: What about the Costumizer? Will we ever get it back? Unfortunately, chances are looking slim. In their announcement post, the Creators explain that they “were receiving many complaints about the feature,” so it will not be returning. Here’s why:

Older players had to spend the credits to purchase a costume or they may have had a discontinued outfit from the early days that is unavailable in the store. Meanwhile, a new player would be able to instantly copy and wear the same items from any older profile, sidestepping the other player’s efforts.

Alas, some fans are not content with this explanation…

It is true that this reasoning doesn’t feel fully justified. Even when the Costumizer was available in the past, some items were still not fully customizable (such as store costumes that cost other players credits). Was this failsafe not enough? Similarly, what if they just made NPCs customizable and not other players?

Either way, the Costumizer has always been a fan favorite despite whatever drawbacks the Creators may see regarding fairness, so I am sad to see it left behind.

Pop HQ also claims to have “a few special projects in the works,” so maybe we can look forward to other updates in the near future.

In other news, the Creators also announced two new costumes available in store. They include Loose Twirl (250 credits) and Soccer Champ (200 credits with membership, in yellow, green, and blue).

Oddly enough though, these aren’t the only two new outfits I see in the store. On my end, there’s also an Acidic Dinosaur, Volleyball Allstar (in teal, grey, and red), Overall Shorts, Striped Romper, Choose Love Shirt, and Hedgehog Head Rider: all for 0 credits! Is this a mistake on their end?

I also wonder if the “choose love” shirt a subtle nod to Pride Month. Though that’s what comes to mind when I hear that phrase, the shirt is not the colorful spectacle I would expect if that was their intention. Am I reading too much into that?

I also see some returning outfits, and a glitch where the Slice of Pizza Tee and King & Queen Hoodies appear much larger than the rest of the costumes. Moreover, the 5th screen appears completely empty for me aside from a Zomberry character peeking out on the right side.

Such glitches leave me unsatisfied with these rushed updates, but maybe that’s just me.

Lastly, we have a few new clubhouse items to share. For non-members: a hammock chair, instant camera, LED bonsai tree, and LED photo clip. Looks like the Overall Shorts outfit is in this picture too? For members: a Popcorn Maker, Indoor Tent, Egg Chair, Punching Bag, Figure Display, and Salt Lamp.

Not gonna lie, these items do look super cute. I’m totally jealous of the members-only figure display! Who wouldn’t want a little Rumpelstiltskin in their home?

And with that long post, our updates come to an end. How do you feel about this new feature? Do you miss the Costumizer as much as I do? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!

Dreamy Clubhouse Tour: Invisible Ring 🦄

Howdy Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Invisible Ring. Enjoy!

Hey, it’s me, Invisible Ring! Remember me from my first, second, and third clubhouse tours? Well, get ready for the grand finale, because my final clubhouse tour is ready!

Wow, look at this place! I’ve never seen so many flowers and — *GASP* Oh my gosh, UNICORNS! This is a dream come true! Is this a dream room?

Me: What else is in here? Ooooh, what a forest! It’s even better than the one in my room! 

Tourist: I know, right? 

Me: Huh? Oh hi! I didn’t know there was someone else here.

Tourist: Yeah, these woods remind me so much of Twisted Thicket.

Me: You wanna explore these woods with me?

Tourist: Whoa, dude, I don’t think going any further is a good idea. Dangerous things always go on in forests just like this one.

Me: I’m not afraid. I mean, this is all part of my clubhouse!

Tourist: Oh, ok. So that means you already know what goes on in here, huh?

Me: Well, I uh…. 

Tourist: Oops, gotta go! Great talkin’ to ya!

Oooh boy, I suddenly have a bad feeling about this. Maybe that guy was right. Maybe rushing in there is a bad idea, but what should I do? I’d better slow down and set up camp around here somewhere and figure this out. 

Ok, so I knew what I was doing in the rest of the rooms in my clubhouse, but I don’t know what I am doing in this last room. That’s a scary thought, but then again, figuring out what you don’t know along the way is half the fun of exploring. Ok, It’s decided. Back to the forest!

Me: Oh my gosh! Who are you? And where did these flowers come from? It’s as though the whole forest instantly bloomed! Did you do this?

Fairy: Indeed. Welcome home, Invisible Ring. Much has happened since your last arrival here.

Me: Yeah, It’s been a busy year, y’know?

Fairy: Yes. You have come a long way. Please continue. I will be here if you need my help. 

Gnome: Hey, you! FREEZE!

Me: Everybody clap your hands!

Gnome: Don’t try to smooth-talk your way outta this, trespasser! You’re comin’ with me! 

Me: Trespasser? I know I haven’t been in here for a long time, but this is my clubhouse! But since you seem to know your way around this place, I’ll come with you.

Gnome: That’s more like it. Don’t try anything funny now, ya hear me?

Gnome: Your majesty, I found an intruder in the woods. What should I do with her?

Gnome King: Mango, put that squirt gun down. That’s Invisible Ring! She owns the place!

Me: Your name is Mango? Haha! *ahem* I mean… Told ya.

Me: It’s nice to meet all of you, but I have some questions here.

Gnomes: And we got answers! What’s up?

Me: Has anyone noticed this place keeps changing? First, the unicorns ran and hid somewhere, then the trees themselves moved around! What’s going on?

Gnomes: This room is your creation, right? And don’t people describe their favorite art as “moving”?

Me: Ohhh, I get it! That makes a TON of sense, thanks a lot! Now I know exactly how this place works.

Ooh, this is just beautiful. Look at all of the stars in the sky tonight! I have such a good view of ‘em from here. This room really is a gem!

And speaking of gems, this tree is covered with ‘em! It’s so colorful, no wonder these butterflies like this spot so much! 

Me: What’s up here? Oh, It’s a giant! Um… hello. I come in peace

Giant: So you’re the Invisible Ring that the gnome guards were talking about, huh?

Me: Uh, yes sir! …Oh look! The unicorns! So that’s where they went!

Giant: They’re with me, kid. We guard the place. If you run into any trouble, call us. Got it?

Me: Gotcha! Oh by the way, what’s that stuff the gnome is drinking?

Giant: It’s an enchanted elixir. You should give it a try. There’s an extra bottle over on the right.

That’s a lot of treasure! And that dragon is one heavy sleeper. There it is — The elixir bottle! I should find a good place to try it. 

I think this is my favorite clubhouse room! Why don’t I come here more often? I must remember to come here every time I need a creative inspiration! Ok, this looks like a good place for a drink break.

What the? Where did this helicopter come from?!

Lumberjerks: Well, what do you know! I didn’t think we would run into a second magical forest. Hey, wait! We know you! You’re the brat who stopped us last time over at that twisted thicket! But it doesn’t matter now, because you’re not wearing a magical necklace this time. You’re in big trouble now!

Me: What are you doing?! Why are you here? You’re scaring away all the inhabitants! Guards, get down here quick! It’s an emergency!

Giant: Leave here at once or I’m gonna smash your chopper and take you to jail.

Lumberjerks: Not if our chopper smashes you first, you overgrown gorilla!


Me: NO, What have you done?!

Lumberjerks: Oh don’t worry. They’re not dead. But now they won’t be able to get in the way when we rip this forest down to the roots!

Me: You’re gonna destroy this place?! But why? You’ve got no right!

Lumberjerks: Look, kid. This is how we, as people, make a living. Getting rid of this rubbish is all just part of natural selection. Now, there are two ways out of here, kid. The easy way and the hard way. And you do NOT want to leave the hard way! 

Me: So this is what the tourist meant. This is the kind of danger that happens in a forest like this. 

Lumberjerks: This is your last chance. Either you go away or we have no choice but to MAKE you go away!

Me: NO! Nobody threatens me like that! This is MY clubhouse! This is MY work of art! And if you think I’ll let you take it all away, you’re DEAD WRONG!

Lumberjerks: HAHAHA, What are YOU gonna do about it, little girl?

Me: Blast it! I don’t know. Oh wait, my magic juice! Now’s the perfect time to drink it and see what it can do! Behold — the power of this enchanted forest!


Me: I did?… I mean, that’s right, I did! And if you think that’s surprising, behold the most powerful magic of all in this forest — my imagination!

Lumberjerks: Holy fricassee! Who’s moving all those stars?!

Me: I am! Now begone you intruders! Run away and never return!

Lumberjerks: AAAHHHH! RUUUUN!

Me: Hey, you all came back and you’re all ok!

Giant: Way to show those jerks who’s boss! You made us all proud, young warrior.

Me: Warrior?…Oh yeah, my sword! I remember now that I had it concealed in my ninja suit for emergencies!

Gnomes: Forget the sword, lady! Did you even notice that you transformed into some sort of flaming angel? That was incredible! And you saved the forest, for Pete’s sake!

Me: Yeah, the seraphim has always been my favorite tribe, and I couldn’t have saved the forest without you guys. I’m sorry I hadn’t visited for so long.

Gnomes: You don’t have to be sorry. You wouldn’t be much of an adventurer if you just stayed put inside your house all day, would you?

Me: Hehe,I guess not. Oh my gosh, why do I feel so tired all of a sudden?

Fairies: Nothing surprising there. An imagination as powerful as yours takes a lot of strength to use. You should go and get some rest. 

Me: Well, ok. I guess I’ll be going now.

Fairies: Keep on adventuring! We’ll be here whenever you’re ready to visit!

Me: Alright. Bye, everybody!

Home, sweet home. That tour was a big job, but it’s done now.

Hey, did my garden grow while I was gone? Cool! Now I know what I’m gonna explore tomorrow!

Looks like my laptop is still on. What’s it say?… Aw, sweet! I can see all four parts of my clubhouse tour on the PHB now! So glad I took up the offer, and it felt great to finish the job.

That’s all, folks! Thank you so much for joining me on my whole tour, and I hope it was an adventure for you as much as it was for me. I’ve got no plans to post anything else now, but if you really want more from me on the PHB, just let me know in the comments section. Until then, I’m taking a breather. I sure won’t have any trouble falling asleep tonight!

Ride the Hawk Wings before the sunset 🌅

Hey Poptropicans, it’s the start of a new week, which means another store update on Poptropica! Let’s pop in for a peek. 👀

Over in the costumes section, there’s a new casual outfit: the Sunset Tee! Also, though these have been around for a while, the Creators’ Blog recap of this week’s update highlighted the elegant Prom Princess and Prom Party looks in time for prom season. Promtropica party time?

As for the other costumes, they’ll probably look familiar if you’ve been playing Pop for a while. Even some older costumes have made a comeback, like the Baseball Uniform and Lightning Knight!

Not covered in the Creators’ update are some new styles for pets. Most notably, there’s a cool set of The Hawk Wings for members’ pets. For non-members, you can pick up a simple yet chic Halter Neck Dress for your little one or some of the other fashions from before.

But wait, there’s more! The clubhouse store also rotated its stock, with a few shiny new things among them — including a Brilliant Baby Dr. Hare poster, glowing little bunny lamp, and desk lamp for members.

Modeling some new interior items.

Don’t worry, there’s quite a bit for non-members too. Here, browse the entire store down below and see how it compares with last month’s:

And if you’re needing credits to fund this shopping spree, be sure to check out the Lost Cubs Mini Quest released last week! 🐻 You can replay this quick game to get 50 credits for each subsequent run-through.

Last but not least, remember that the Fairytale Fanfic Challenge is open until this Friday at 8 pm PST! Take that bundle of straw of an ending that the Creators left us with, and turn it into a pile of literary gold à la Rumpelstiltskin. Plus, consider sharing your story with the PHB! ✏️

Keep on popping on, Poptropicans!
