Finest Piece of Pop Merch Review: Time Tangled Wall Clock ⏱🗽

Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Dangerous Dragon, originally published on the Poptropica Creators’ Blog. Plus, the item being reviewed was just named the “Finest Piece of Merch” in the 2021 Poppies. Enjoy!

Hey Poptropicans, DD here! I was invited by the PHB to do a merch review, and since they had a gift card from the Pop Creators, they sent me a free Time Tangled wall clock. I just want to say thank you!

The clock is available for US$32.95 on Poptropica’s Zazzle shop and matches the time device on Time Tangled Island.

The clock arrived in a parcel and was covered with plastic covering to keep it protected. Looks pretty sweet!

After you’ve gazed at the beautiful clock, you need to get it working. To do that, add an AA battery to the back of the clock. That should get the clock ticking away! You can also adjust the clock hands from the back so that it shows your local time.

Now to display the clock, you just need to get a nail and use it to hang the clock on the wall. There’s your Time Tangled clock!

On the wall

A couple of comments: I think there could be numbers on the clock, since it lacks that. Also, it might be better with a protective covering around the clock so that it doesn’t get dusty.

Overall, it is stylish! That’s the end of this review. Look forward to more merch reviews on the PHB, and be sure to check out Smart Icicle’s Blog where I also write. Bye friends!

Keep Poppin,
DD 💜

Pop Merch Review: Funny Bunny Hat 🐰🧢

Originally published on the Poptropica Creators’ Blog.

Hey Poptropicans! Today, I’m bringing you a quick review of the Funny Bunny Farmer’s Hat from the official Poptropica Zazzle Store.

The cap costs US$14.95 and comes in one style: white/green. Though it comes in one size, there is an adjustable snap strap on the back ranging from 17″ to 24″. The front is made of 100% polyester foam and the back is 100% nylon mesh. It is a trucker style hat, so the mesh back is quite breathable.

The Funny Bunny Carrot Farm comes from 24 Carrot Island and is certainly a recognizable, classic design. Other than this hat, it is also available on a mug. I’m impressed with the quality of the print!

The foam front is a bit stiff, but not too bad. And the adjustable strap works well. The brim is strong, yet flexible, and the hat is overall pretty comfortable to wear.

I’ll be excited to wear my new Funny Bunny hat more this summer and see how it holds up against the brutal summer sun.

Thanks to the Poptropica Creators for sponsoring this post! They gifted the PHB a Zazzle gift card so we could share these reviews with you guys. Check out the PHB’s Merchandise Guide for more product info! 💫

Stay funny, Poptropicans!

Pop Merch Review: Dr. Hare Button 🐰🔘

Originally published on the Poptropica Creators’ Blog.

Hey Poptropicans! Sometimes good things come in small packages, and I’ll be sharing about one that I got: the Dr. Hare button!

The Dr. Hare button is available from Poptropica’s Zazzle merch store for US$2.25 and comes in various sizes (ranging from 1 ¼ to 6 inches) and shapes (round or square). I went for a classic round shape with a small diameter of 1 ¼ inch. Here’s the packaging it arrived in:

For its small size, the button sure came in a large packet. Cactus not included.

And here’s Dr. Hare with Dr. Hare to show off the front and back of the button. The way the distinct goggles and teeth are surrounded by lots of negative space gives the design a nice minimalist feel. Overall, it’s definitely a cute pin of Poptropica’s pinkest punk!

You can stick this button anywhere that the pin can poke through, like your backpack, denim jacket, lanyards, or more. As for me, my Dr. Hare button has found a home among my pin collection.

Can you spot the carrot thief?

Thanks to the Poptropica Creators for sponsoring this post! The Creators kindly hooked up the PHB with a generous Zazzle gift card, so we’ll be sharing more merch reviews here soon. Stay tuned! 👀

Pop Merch Review: Shark Boy Plush 🦈

Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Noisy Snowball (Inking 5). Enjoy!

Hello there, everyone! It’s me again, Noisy Snowball. And I would like to introduce a new post series here on the PHB: Merch Reviews! As the name suggests, it’s about reviewing all kinds of Poptropica merchandise, so if you have some items of your own, consider sharing about them here! More about writing for the PHB below.

To start off the series, let me share with you: the Shark Boy Plush!

I am a huge plush collector, from FNAF to Animal Crossing. So when I heard Poptropica had plush toys as well, I knew I had to get one! 

Poptropica has two other plush toys: Dr. Hare and Cool Boy. But I decided on Shark Boy, because he looked pretty cool, and was the cheapest of the three. Now, onto the official review! Here’s a 360° view of my new friend:

He looks really cool to me! I love how the shark eyeballs pop out of his shark costume, but his actual eyes pop out as well. The suit also has teeth surrounding the open part of his head, and a shark fin popping out of his back. He is also holding a dead fish in his left arm (our right side), which is a very nice touch. It fits with him wearing a shark costume.

I’m no expert at judging plush quality, but it feels nice to me! A lot of areas like his head are filled with stuffing, but his body also has beads in it as well. He has also passed my hug test, and the quality of the fabric looks nice to me. This is an awesome plush!

But that’s not all: He also came with a few tags and a credit coin! These are really from the bygone days of Poptropica, when you could redeem prizes with your toys through promo codes. That’s no longer around, but I thought it’d be worth mentioning here.

One of the tags is fairly simple, just stating the name of the plush. But the other two items are pretty interesting!

The plastic credit coin has a sticker with a code on the back of it, which was meant to be redeemed on the Poptropica website. The prizes for this particular toy were a special “Jump the Shark” power and your own in-game Shark Boy Plush! I don’t think I can enter the code anymore, but at least the credit looks cool!

The other tag is actually kinda interesting. It held the credit coin, and inside, there were instructions on how to redeem the code! But the most interesting thing is that the tag is dated from 2011. Wow, that is old, especially since I really only joined Poptropica in January 2021. Makes me curious about what Poptropica was like back then, and what I’ve missed out on!

As for how I got this discontinued toy, the plush was actually listed on a couple websites. One site was Toywiz, and the seller was Jazwares (the company that made Poptropica’s plush toys), still selling them in mint condition! They only had five left. But I didn’t buy it off that website — I ended up getting it on the Walmart website for $14.94, with free shipping as well!

That wraps up the first post on Poptropica Merch Reviews. Hope you all enjoyed it! This might not become a regular post series, but at least the idea is out there. If you have any Poptropica merch and want to write about it, go for it — I would love to read posts about all kinds of merch!

By the way, Poptropica has tons of merch from over the years, from toys to T-shirts! You can discover more of them on this PHB page under the Pop Plus tab: Merchandise: a guide to Poptropica shopping.

And don’t worry, Shark Boy will fit in perfectly with all of my other plush toys. This is Noisy Snowball, signing off!
