Pride Fabrics and Wide-Eyed Comics ๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ‘€

Happy Pride Month, Poptropicans! ๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€โšง๏ธ

To kick off the festivities, Adventure Outfitters has restocked their rainbow gear, featuring lots of the LGBTQ+ Pride-themed costumes and clubhouse items from last year, which will be around all month.

In case you missed it, the store has also made more of its pets available to non-members! Plus, the pet wear has been refreshed, bringing back the Mustache, Pink Wig, and Pink Sunglasses (75 credits each). ๐Ÿฅธ๐Ÿ˜ป

Also, a new month means more prezzies for members! June’s member gifts are Succulent Seeds (equip to spread succ seeds!), Gardening Hat, and Succulent Follower โ€” all wearables. ๐Ÿชด

Over on the Pop Creators’ Blog, guest writer Muddy Kid is back with another installment of her Pop fan comic, The Adventures of Ruby!

We can’t miss mentioning the PHB cameo that appears as Rubyโ€™s Flight Academy friend Syd (based on Spotted Dragon) shares a site she’s working on with โ€” well, us ๐Ÿ˜œ โ€” which has all the guides she needs to be a proper adventurer. Catch up on parts 1, 2, and 3 before diving into part 4!

Also, check out all these fan art features on Pop’s Instagram stories lately! There’s some really special stuff in here, from sidewalk chalk to blimp earrings (that you can buy!). Talented as always! ๐Ÿ’™โœจ

Hook: Survival Ep. 2, Sinker: For Members ๐ŸŽฃ

Yay to you for surviving another week in this weird world! ๐Ÿฆซ

Pop drop: after an earlier teaser, Poptropica has re-released another episode for the map. Survival Island, Ep. 2: Hook, Line, and Sinker is back in business for desktop and mobile โ€” but only for members.

Episode 1 of Survival is currently free for all, but beyond the newly re-released follow-up, the rest of the story is still stuck in limbo. However, the full island (with all 5 episodes) is expected to be included in the Steam bundle releasing next week, so stay tuned for that!

In other news, guest writer Young Rider on the Pop Creators’ Blog has been speculating that Sir Howard Diggory from the new Jade Scarab Island might be a reincarnation of construction leader Burt Diamond from the missing classic Twisted Thicket. ๐ŸŒณ Between their pale English looks and nefarious tendencies, they sure share some similarities. What do you think? (We think we want Twisted Thicket back!)

Episode’s Return Trip by Limp Blimp ๐Ÿต

In this episode of Poptropica updates: a partial island, blimp shenanigans, and fan art features. Tune in for a ride!

Wondering what’s next after Jade Scarab Island? ๐Ÿฑ Poptropica just announced that another installment of an episodic island is being converted for re-release โ€” but as for which, that’s left for us to guess.

Bloon: We feel lighter than air.

Based on what’s still awaiting return, the next episode could be the third and final part of Arabian Nights or PoptropiCon, or the second episode of Survival or Mission Atlantis, which currently only have their first episodes up. ๐Ÿค” Since some of the episodes are members-only right now, the possibility remains that the next one could be, too. We’ll see…

Also on the Creators’ Blog, guest writer Invisible Ring has returned from her hiatus to deliver commentary about the evolution of Poptropicans’ iconic yellow blimp. She traces how the blimp has gotten smaller on newer islands like Fairytale, while remaining their original bigger size with the Pop logo on older islands like Mythology โ€” and are completely missing from episodic islands, beyond the crash landing in Survival. โšก๏ธ

Poptropica’s also been spotlighting fan art on social media, including Zomberry rocks from the PHB’s LJ, which we also featured in our Community Creations this month! Enjoy their Instagram stories below and more in this Creators’ Blog art appreciation post. ๐Ÿคฉ

Plus, check out these island-inspired IRL fits from @sockf00ted.books on IG (@poptroppy on TikTok)! Swipe for video, and if you like what you see, there’s more on their profile. So much talent! โœจ

Pop on, Poptropicans!

YouTube Gaming remembers Poptropica

History repeats itself โ€” Poptropica’s once again trending on Twitter!

Similar to when this happened last May, mentions of Poptropica picked up steam from an image post that asked people to pick their favorite out of a list of nostalgic kids’ virtual world games from the 2000s. This time, the tweet came from YouTube Gaming, a subsidiary of YouTube.

Plenty of Poptropicans weighed in, including a torn Thinknoodles, Poptropica itself watching the scene unfold with a tea-sipping Amelia, and sister site Coolmath Games, whose support garnered extra bestie points from YouTube Gaming, the original poster.

Meanwhile, Poptropica is putting their best foot forward on their Twitter profile with another one of their odd memes โ€” walking slouched is now “Poptropica posture syndrome.” Watch your back!

Over on the Pop Creators’ Blog, guest writer Golden Horse shared part one of a fanfiction story set after the events of Fairytale Island, before Rumpel’s side quest happened. The fanfic weaves together heroic unicorns, old and new characters inspired by other legends, and a quest to gather items to defeat a great Evil. Read it here!

Rounding off this post, here are the latest fan art features from Pop’s Instagram stories this week. Enjoy! (Protip: The PHB always links to each original IG post, so you can click on the artists’ names to view their work in detail, Poptropica’s comments, and bonus pics if any!)

Keep on poppin’ on!

Poppin’ threads of Poptropica threads ๐Ÿ‘˜

Hey Poptropicans! Perhaps it’s time to brush up your Pop fit game? Tune in for Poptropica fashion made with a healthy dose of Poptropassion!

Beyond the PHB’s Costume Lookbook, a recent Creators’ Blog post from guest writer Pink Crush covers 10 poppin’ styles, with promises of 11 more to come later. You can read more about the thought behind each one on the blog, but here’s an overview of the fits:

For more inspo on the coolest drip, pop on over to this poppin’ fit check thread on Poptropica’s Twitter! Tons of Poptropicans have been sharing their current and favorite outfits from the game.

And here’s a selection of them, including one “2 kewl 4 skewl” from Poptropica’s bestie Coolmath Games! Check out the thread replies for even more creative thoughts on threads.

In addition to the latest store items, the Creators’ Blog also celebrated St. Patrick’s Day with a special sighting of Amelia beholding a unicorn. The eagle-eyed might notice that they recycled a previous pic from Amelia’s home to create this one (thanks for the tip, Tough Spinner!).

While there haven’t been any unicorns frolicking in-game (besides our pet customizations), could this be a hint for something to come?

Rounding off the tour of new sights are a collection of Poptropica’s Instagram stories from this past week. Enjoy!

Thanks for poppin’ by! Like what you see? See if it fits!
