Good day Poptropicans! I’ve got some uplifting news that’ll make you jump for joy! So without further ado, let’s hop to it, shall we?
Poptropica is celebrating its 14th birthday all month long, and with celebrations come surprises. Nonetheless, I was pleasantly surprised to see the return of the colorful, arcade-style minigame, Hoptropica!
Hoptropica first hopped onto the scene for a limited time back in December of 2020, and now it’s back and birthday-ified for players to relive or play for the first time! Either way, this version is still out for only a LIMITED TIME so hop now or forever hold your piece… of cake. 🍰
Last week, the Pop Creators hinted at minigame re-releases, free store items, and easy opportunities to earn credits — I just didn’t know we would be getting all at once! Right now, you’ll win14 credits (for Poptropica’s 14th birthday) every time you play Hoptropica!
But wait, there’s more. After you hop, pop into the store and acquire your FREE birthday Bit-Beev and Bit-Hare followers!
I personally am really hyped to see Hoptropica return — and have the swag to show for it. Thanks to the Pop Creators’ gift card to the PHB, Slanted Fish even hooked me up (no pun intended) with the 8-bit Hare & Beev stickers from Poptropica’s merch store.
That’s all from me. Be sure to hop to celebrate Pop and take advantage of the bound-iful rewards available! I’ll see you next time, this Boa’s gotta bounce!
Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Giant Dragon, with screenshots from the PHB’s Slanted Fish. Enjoy!
Hel-lo Poptropicans! GD aka Giant Dragon here. A brand new mini-quest just dropped — let’s take a look!
First, we have to talk to Amelia on Home Island. She’s got a question mark on her head. When we talk to her, she says she hasn’t introduced herself properly, and invites us to tea at her house, which is on the floor above Adventure Outfitters. (Wow, two floors!)
Excuse all the Paw Patrol: The Movie ads you’re going to see along the way. Inside the store, to the right, you’ll see a secret doorway leading to the second floor. Go on, click enter. Then…
Ta-da, she has her own clubhouse! (And I have to admit, it’s cute.) But first, breaking news: Amelia owns Home Island! According to her, she bought the deed to Home Island with the money she got from her adventures. Oh wow!!
Have fun exploring her place — it’s lore galore, so let’s talk about some of it! Noteworthy parts include the magical lipstick from Fairytale Island, a cute kitchen, and photographs of flying with Xavier and defeating the Red Baron (the rivalry runs deep!). Does anything else seem a bit familiar to you here? Looks like she’s been to Escape from Pelican Rock Island and gotten her own dummy head made!
Now as for the mini-quest, Amelia will tell you she’s missing some cargo that got lost on Survival Island, just a short ride away from Home Island on the map. Apparently she’s afraid of a certain sky pirate…
Make your way to Survival Island and head right to the second scene. There, you’ll find a box overstuffed with unicorn goodies on one of the snowcapped rock ledges. Take the Lost Cargo and return to Amelia’s!
Realizing you saw what was inside (I mean, girl, it is overflowing), Amelia will blush hard in an anime-like, sweat drop animation sequence never before seen in Poptropica. UwU or OwO? 😅😊😳
Anyway, she’ll give you 1,000 credits and a unicorn plushie décor for your clubhouse. Look, how cute!
And have a look at Amelia’s bedroom! Unicorns galore! You can tell her whether you think they’re cute or dorky, but either way, it’s now our little secret. For now… wonder what the Baron would think?
Remember the first sneak peek we saw of this mini-quest? We now get to see the final version! Too bad the identities of the others featured remains a mystery. Or is the one on the right the Baron?
Did you see the Crisis Caverns trophy from Poptropica Worlds? It seems your character doesn’t know what that “thing” is, so what do you think is the reason? The comments section is all yours…
That’s it from me today. Keep your eyes popped for my future posts. Bye!!!

Hey, Poptropicans! Time to check out the newest stuff Poptropica has to offer. We have costumes, comics, stories, and even quests. Let’s go!
Last week, Poptropica made an Instagram post featuring a costume that had yet to grace the Pop store. Now, with the latest store update, the Forest Druid costume is available for purchase! This magical costume has a little bit of everything for everyone — if by “everyone” you mean members. 🤑🙃
The end of the store update post added, “Does the latest costume remind you of anything?” As far as I can tell, this costume appears to be based on Devoted Druid from the card game “Magic: The Gathering.” Both have similar cloaks and headpieces, but the Poptropica version has more foliage. Is this the right costume, or is there one more identical?
Next, Part 3 of Muddy Kid’s fan comic The Adventures of Ruby is now up on the Pop Creators’ Blog! Check out the first twoparts to catch up on the story. In this month’s issue, Ruby sets off on a quest and earns her first pretend medallion. Click to enlarge the comic panels:
Finally, the Creators shared some new stuff on their latest Instagram stories. The first two stories highlight some great clips of Black Widow as if she were in an Ace Attorney game, and the third story shows a sneak peek of the Dimension Bros’ Poptropica Month video upload schedule.
Hey Poptropicans! We’ve got a little sneak peek and a load of fan art features coming right up — let’s pop right in!
Remember the sketch of the wild baking sesh from a couple weeks ago? According to the Creators’ Blog, it’s almost time for this mini-quest involving Amelia and her friend who also has a statue on Home Island!
As the event looms near, she’s looking plenty calm sipping her tea, despite the chaos of a plane dropping boxes in the background…
Meanwhile, the Creators have been dropping a few hints for the forthcoming experience, saying: “you may have to go to freight lengths as a favor to Poptropica’s leading lady.” Considering that freight pun and the sneak peek we just saw, we may be having some transport trouble delivering goods in the skies! Either way, prizes are promised. Stay tuned!
That wraps up this post! What are your speculations for what we might be facing in Amelia’s mini-quest? Who’s the mysterious fellow statued figure immortalized with her on Home Island? What tunes would you pair with Poptropica islands? Share with us in the comments!
Stay awesome and keep poppin’ on, Poptropicans! ✌️
Happy weekend, Poptropicans! We’ve got a few fun updates in this post: a video and more behind-the-scenes from the Candy Crazed Mini Quest as well as some fan art features. Let’s pop into it!
First, a small nod to the LGBTQ+ came through in the latest Creators’ Blog post, which begins, “HELLOOOOO all you guys, gals, and non-binary pals!” 🏳️🌈 The post includes a playthrough video of the Candy Crazed Mini Quest from Silent Frog, Poptropica’s social media voice:
“Do you think Hansel and Gretel are the villains of the story?” Silent Frog asks. As the video is part of YouTube Kids, comments are turned off there, but you can share your take in the Creators’ Blog comments!
The blog also shared some BTS (not a K-Poptropican group, but behind-the-scenes) of the making of the mini quest’s decadent designs. 🍫 Take a look at the candy palace pics below and read more about this tasty treat tower with juicy puns and alliterations on the official blog:
In other news, earlier this week, the Pop Creators shared some fan art features on their Instagram stories! Check out these peachy portraits:
