Mary POP-pins returns to Poptropica

Hello, Poptropicans! It’s Lucky Joker here with a practically perfect Photo Booth update for the movie everybody’s talking about—”Mary Poppins Returns.”

It’s just one new backdrop and three new props (including two human characters 🤷‍♂️). Fly a kite with Mary and Jack in front of a neat backdrop in this latest update. Check out my snapshot below featuring a festive Lucky Joker:

In addition to the Photo Booth update, an advertisement for the sequel film can be accessed via the island map. Simply watch the video, and you’ll receive a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Balloon Power which makes everyone around you float.

So, have seen the movie yet? What did you think of it? Let us know down in the comments (but no spoilers!).

Thank you for reading as always, I’ll talk you all in the next one. And to those who celebrate… have a Mary Christmas from the PHB, and from the Creators! Pop on!

🎵 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!

It’s all tricks & treats in Poptropica!

How’s it going, spooktropicans? It’s Lucky Joker here with a couple of updates to share with you all today!

First off, a new membership benefit has been implemented into the game. Now, members who win items from advertisement games will be able to keep the prizes after the ad disappears!

Not a huge deal, but still pretty cool nonetheless. I find many of the prizes from the ad games quite amusing. 😛

If you’re not a member, though, don’t worry — the creators say that they’re working on some new stuff for all players expected to launch this year! We’ll see if that happens…

In the meantime, we also have the largest ASG collection you can take advantage of to deck your character in retired ad costumes and lots more!


In other news… with Halloween approaching, it’s the perfect time to create a photo with all the new fun options that have recently been added to the Photo Booth! Check out the few that I made:

And there’s plenty more props and characters where those came from… I guess you’ll have to try it out for yourself. 😉

Plus, you can even have the chance to have your creation featured on the Official Poptropica Instagram account; just post it on Instagram with the hashtag #spookypop!

One more thing: If you’re feeling especially artistic in this spooky season, be sure to participate in this month’s Community Creations. The theme for October is Villains!

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

Love becomes Reality this Valentine’s Day!

Hey guys, my name is Brave Tomato, and I have some lovely news to share with you all today!

It appears love is in the air this Valentine’s Day season! Whether you have a special someone to share the season with, or if you’re just here for the chocolate, the Creators now have a little V-Day-themed Photo Booth contest going! Get started with the booth on Home Island:

The objective is to create a Valentine’s-themed photo booth picture. To help with the contest, several lovely Photo Booth props have arrived in the selection, so you can add your own special touch to what you have.

When you’re ready, post it to Twitter or Instagram (with the hashtag: #PoptropicaLove), or post it on their Facebook page. Besides showcasing their favorites on social media, one-month memberships will also be randomly awarded to some lucky participants!

Here are some example Photo Booth creations from Poptropica (the first is a collage of multiple photos):

Hey look, it’s Spotted Dragon! Anyway – have a lovely time creating. 😉

In other news, the awaited video walkthrough for Island of the Month Reality TV Island by everyone’s favorite pirate is now available on YouTube! Check out Crawfish teaching you how to complete the island while not exactly being an expert on the island either, with his usual wit along the way!

Now go for those 500 (for first time finishers) or 300 (for one subsequent time) credits you can get by completing this! Don’t forget- you can also get the credit boost through…breaking out of jail in Escape from Pelican Rock. How romantic.

So what do you think? Will you be participating in the new contest? Did you catch the little joke Captain Crawfish made in the new video? What will be next?

Iiiiiit’s… Wa-Black Widow! Have a nice day.

Until next time, BT out!

In other news, the month of Halloween October is now in full swing, so Poptropica’s begun to celebrate! The Halloween photo booth is back, along with another Photo Booth contest starting next week. Skinny Moon has also gotten into the spoopy spooky spirit, and she’s not the only one – have you seen our Poptropicans lately? 😉

In other spooky news, there appear to be some strange glitches on Home Island affecting hair color and fashion choices. No, oh wait – apparently DJ Saturday Nite and New You lady went to the hair salon together, and even Amelia’s appearance is deliberate. My bad.

In addition to the aesthetic changes, some characters, specifically Amelia Earhart and the wheel-spinny-guy-dude, also have some new dialogue! Seems the creators favor the term “loot” over “prizes” now, and Amelia’s plugging the new Fall Fashion lineup. (Thanks to Happy Lobster for the images!)

Finally, the spooky Halloween-themed items of the Poptropica Store have been moved to the front of the card lineups for easy access! Check ’em out and deck out!

Whoof, this was a long update. Thanks for sticking with me!

Photo Booth for Mystery of the Map!

Hey everyone, Spotted Dragon here with another Poptropica update! Two posts in one week from SD? What??? Yeah yeah, anyway…

Getting straight to the point, a Mystery of the Map themed Photo Booth has appeared on Home Island! Thanks to Slippery Raptor for the pictures. 😛 In case you’re wondering why MotM, it’s because the first installment of the graphic novel is coming on March 1st and you can pre-order it now! 🙂

A whole new set of backgrounds are included… as well as many characters that can join you in your photo! Sadly, Octavian is missing. (If you’re interested, you can click to view the full images.)

But that’s not all! If you visit the Photo Booth now, you will also be greeted with a wide variety of new props! From beach to throne room to Viking fort to dining hall, there’s lots to choose from. 😀

You can pre-order the Mystery of the Map book now almost anywhere books are sold!

Okay, quitting that advertisement voice… *cough* That’s all for now guys! Keep checking in for more Poptropica updates. 😉
