Hey Poptropicans—it’s remodelling time, and this season’s color, apparently, is pearly white. From knit wall pieces to shiny bikes, there’s plenty to choose from in the latest update to the clubhouse store!
While new players got a set of special housewarming gifts a couple weeks ago (and old players were left out 😢), this update (on both Flash and Haxe) is for everyone—though a little under half of the items (including the “POP”-branded transistor radio) are for members only.
I took the liberty of going on a little shopping spree to showcase some of these slick new furniture items in my crib (including the intriguing head of the mythical jackalope!). Anyway, it turns out the (free) white wallpaper really goes well with a lot of this stuff…
In other news, there haven’t been any new items to the regular store since last week (despite the Home Island billboard’s promises of weekly updates), though some of the items did get shuffled around. But hey, I guess if we’re counting the clubhouse store, then we got some pretty sweet stuff.
If you’re in the mood for some home decorating, consider entering your clubhouse into our Tribal Tournament! Any Poptropica-related works of art, including costumes and clubhouses, can count for points towards your tribe. Plus, don’t miss out on this week’s round of Genius Games! 🧠🏅
That’s all for this post, but plenty more is happening with our ongoing tournament, especially on the PHC. Keep up the flame of the Games! 🔥

If you recently created a Haxe account, check out your clubhouse by clicking the clubhouse icon in your menu. When you arrive, you will be greeted with a welcoming pop-up and a fully-furnished living space. The sleek and modern designs of the furniture remind me of the ones from Poptropica Worlds.
These new items will appear in your clubhouse inventory, which you can access in Decorate Mode. Unfortunately, most of the old default items are gone, including the Poppies-award-winning Poptropica blimp! 😮 The only old item remaining is the green treehouse wallpaper.
If a player already visited their clubhouse prior to this update, they will get the new white wallpaper but not the new furniture. Why leave older accounts out of this special deal, Creators? Anyway, there are still plenty of items you can buy from the clubhouse store, so you won’t be stuck with an empty room.
Next time you visit Home Island on Haxe, you may notice that every character (except Amelia, the ice cream girl, and ad characters) has vanished. In their place, randomized NPCs can be spotted walking around and going in and out of buildings. Among these extras, you can spot some characters from Snagglemast Island, such as the vampire boy and the pink-haired girl.
Now let’s move on from game updates to social media updates! Last week, the Poptropica Instagram page posted a story asking fans what type of videos they want to see in the future. The Creators are probably eager to upload more content to the Poptropica YouTube channel.
This week, the Creators’ Blog released a post featuring a new YouTube video. The post and the video highlight the Upside-Down Magic advertisement, the Dritten Follower prize (which they misspelled in their post as Dritton Follower, though it’s a simple mistake considering it’s a kitten and dragon crossover), and the ice cream stand on Home Island.
That’s all for now. What are your thoughts on this new clubhouse update? What type of videos do you want to see from Poptropica? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
Hey, Poptropicans! This is Gentle Dolphin bringing the latest Poptropica news.
The Creators have been hard at work moving the game and its many islands to the Haxe platform. There’s been exciting development: Escape from Pelican Rock Island is now playable on Poptropica’s Haxe build!
The island is currently in early access, so only members can play it right now. On the bright side, it’s available to all players on the Flash version of the game. (Thanks to PERCY JACKSON1010 for the tip.)
Looking at the map, the next islands coming to the Haxe build will be Mythology Island, followed by Shrink Ray Island, as we previously reported.
Before you start your prison-break escapades, make sure to stop by Bert’s Basement Gym and check out its common room store with your a-droid-able friend Quippy. If cuteness is a crime, then Quippy is guilty as charged. You’ll find them accompanied by a pelican on their head and dressed in a classic striped prison uniform.
Three of the four items—Prisoner Costume, Pet Bird Follower, and Escapee Dr. Hare—were originally made to promote Escape from Pelican Rock’s release, but the Handcuff Toss is new! Equip it and press the spacebar to throw your handcuffs in the air like you just don’t care.
Are you guys excited to return to the near-impenetrable walls of Pelican Rock? If you need help at any point during your stay, check out our Escape From Pelican Rock guide for tips, tricks, and trivia.
Common rooms aren’t the only stores receiving updates. The three other in-game stores received some updates as well.
This week’s Poptropica store lineup is mostly the same as last week’s, but a few items were swapped. In costumes, Dangerous Waters and Mech Pilot have been replaced with Clown and Fierce Lion*. Also, the creepy Zombify ability was swapped with the lovely Love Potion* in the pranks section.
The Pet Barn also boasts a lineup of new and old accessories for your precious pets. Our returning items this time around are Sorcerer Hat*, Flower Headband, Black Pointed Bangs, Round Glasses, Hero Mask, Grey Beard, Zomberry Eyes, Yellow Dead Eyes, Cute Blue Eyes*, and Big Brown Eyes*. We also have five new items: Reading Glasses, Green Cloak, Fairy Wings, Bat Wings, and Bandana.
Finally, the clubhouse store has a new array of familiar furniture and wallpapers. This time around, the decor store features 21 items, 12 of which are members-only.
Don’t forget that the Poppies 2020 nomination round ends tonight, so make sure to fill out our survey and let us know who/what you feel deserves to win an award. Maybe you want to nominate some of the new pet items for Best Pet Accessory, or your favorite furniture items for Best Clubhouse Decor. Get nominating before time runs out!
Hey, Poptropicans! Today, we’re going to talk about a store rearrangement, a Home Island makeover, and the Avatar Studio. Why am I getting a strange case of déjà vu? Anyway, let’s get started with this week’s store lineup!
This week, players can purchase trendy summer fashion and classic costumes. Although the Orange Julius is members-only, the other outfits are available to all players. These items are: Rainbow Storm, Rebel Beach, Spiff Boy, Soccer Player(boys and girls), Mythology Surfer(boys and girls), Pop Star, and Rock Star.
Over the past few weeks, the four items in the Powers section took turns being on sale one week at a time. First was the Bobblehead Power, then the Atom Power, and now players save big with the Binary Rain Power. Maybe the Flower Planting Power will be on sale next week? We’ll see.
Also, some of the sections rearranged the order of their cards, and the Ice Blaster Pistol disappearing from the Pranks section.
Remember Home Island getting a summer makeover on Flash? The Haxe version of Home Island followed suit and welcomed summer in its own unique way. Bushels of apples can be found in the trees and on the ground. If you need a cool refreshing treat, head over to the ice cream stand next to the Blast-Off Arcade to get a free soft serve cone. Sweet! 😋
Instead, you’ll need to click the clubhouse icon in the menu to be transported to your virtual home away from home.
You’re going to need some furniture to decorate your humble abode. Click the store button on the bottom left of the screen, and you’ll be transported to the clubhouse store. So far, 23 furniture items are available in the Haxe clubhouse store, with five being members-only.
Check out the decorator in action. Yup, just like in Flash!
Pretty magical, huh? It’s too bad it’s members only… just like in Flash, non-members only get the first clubhouse interior, which is the treehouse.
Another little cosmetic change in Haxe: the save screen where you create a Poptropica account has gotten a makeover! Now it features some kind of futuristic warrior in a robot suit and a girl waving from the sides.
Ah, the Avatar Studio. A simple application in which players can look up and share their avatars with others online. Former PHB author Purple Claw gave us a tip that something was amiss with the system. Players can still search for their avatars as normal. However, when you view the link to your avatar, you are suddenly greeted by this handsome fellow:
Every Avatar Studio link now directs you to former Pop Creator Vlad the Viking’s avatar, regardless of the username you typed in. It’s a strange glitch, to be sure. Let’s hope this gets fixed soon.
That’s all for now. What do you think of this week’s store lineup? What items do you want to see return in the future? Thoughts on the other updates?
Hey, Poptropicans! This is Gentle Dolphin bringing you the latest Poptropica news, so let’s kick things off with a fetchingclubhouse shop update!
The furniture store over at Poptropica Original has recently been updated with some new items that should please the sports stars and pet lovers of Poptropica.
In this update, you will find sports equipment for games like ping pong, baseball, tennis, volleyball, basketball, and soccer (or football if you prefer to call it that). You’ll also find a fewgoodies for pets, as well as a new wallpaper just in time for spring.
The new sports and pets items each cost 75 credits, and the wallpaper costs 150 credits. Plus, they’re available to all players so that’s awesome!
Here’s a picture I took of my clubhouse after buying some of the new items (I apologize for the low resolution):
Also, there’s been an update to the Poptropica Stickers app on iOS! You can find some cute critters among the “Pets! Pets! Pets!” and “Spring Favorites” sections, including pet toys, elephants (Dumbo?), and flowers.
In other news, there’s a new ad for Disney’s upcoming reboot of “Dumbo” (yup… knew those elephants came from somewhere). All you need to do is to watch the video in order to get the adorable Dumbo Follower. You can even click on Dumbo to hear him trumpet.
That’s about it for now. What do you think of the new clubhouse items? Will you be seeing the live-action “Dumbo” in theaters next week? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
