Dressed Designs and Tribe Throughlines

Hey Poptropicans! We’ve got costume designs, throwbacks, tone-twisting tweets, and a fan comic. Let’s pop right in!

January’s costume contest reel has been released, though a winner has yet to be announced. In the meantime, enjoy all the creativity:

Which ones are you hoping to see in the game? Here are a couple of costumes with great color schemes that caught our eye:


The Pop Creators’ Blog recently shared a post from guest writer Golden Crown about the old tradition of Tribes from the Poptropolis Games. By the way, thanks Golden Crown for sharing the PHB’s Tribes page, where you can learn more about each tribe’s personality and even tour their epic common rooms! Which flag will you fly?


Over on Twitter, Poptropica shared a wholesome response to a wholesome meme, featuring a dino-dressed pet:

And in a less wholesome tweet still perhaps with a grain of truth:


Last but not least, here’s a fan art feature from Pop’s Instagram story! If you’re a diehard Pop fan, perhaps you too can relate to the intense passion captured in this comic:

That’s a wrap for this post. Pop on, Poptropicans!

Baron's Airship, Monthly Costume Contests

Rainbow Pup with Reverts on Pop Outfits πŸŒˆ

Hey, is that a rainbow in the skies of Pop?

Just a hair of one β€” the Baron’s back in Home Island airspace and carrying goodies including the free winning costume design, Rainbow Pup by Hamburger Hamburger! πŸΆπŸ”

Also in the Cabin of Curiosities, you’ll find three new clubhouse items: Dino Head (75 credits), potted Cactus (75), and Cards and Candles (75). Enjoy the Baron’s visit β€” it’s only going to last “a short while”!


In other news, the character customization screen has gotten a little update! Now, selecting a costume will bring up its image in larger detail, with a “Costumize” button to begin picking parts from it like before.

This time, though, a new gray “Revert” button will appear when you try something on. You can use it to undo your item selection and go back to the way you looked. Pretty handy! (Thanks to Friendly Feather for the tip.)


We’ve also been graced with a little reminder that Poptropica has been working on bringing back old islands, in the form of a TikTok/YouTube short featuring Arabian Nights, Ep. 1, although the video title references Ep. 2. Either way… yay! Let’s keep the episodes coming for all.

Anyway, that’s what’s up for now. See you in the next one!

Live from the Hive: PoptropiCon rumored rerelease and more β˜„️

Hey Poptropicans, news from the hive coming at you live! Sort of, anyway. Pop in for sneak peeks, costumes, member gifts, and fan art!

The Pop Creators have dropped one last sneak peek for the upcoming Goofball Island side quest, as well as the bomb that it’ll be for members only, like bonus quests of old Pop islands. Meet the Hive News van:

Could Bee Bot from previous peeks be a tool, or even a sentient employee, of this buzzing news organization? We’ll find out soon when this sequel side quest drops! 🐝🎀


Over at Adventure Outfitters, tons of PoptropiCon-themed outfits and clubhouse decor have hit the racks! Among the new outfits are characters from Mighty Action Force, the card game from PoptropiCon Island, Ep. 2: Spoiler Alert. Seems like a hint for the next possible rerelease, as Poptropica has mentioned bringing back more episodes.

For the full rundown of what’s new, check out the Creators’ Blog post.


The start of a new month also brings two familiar traditions: Member gifts for January are the Apple Cider Bottle, Fun Fireworks, and Sparkler accessories. Plus, the call is already out to begin sending in designs for the monthly costume contest, which ends in two weeks on Mon, January 17 at 8 p.m. PST. Keep your spark going! 🌠


Get your inspiration going with the latest fan art features from Pop’s Instagram stories. Maybe even join our Community Creations!

And with that, we’re popping off right into 2022! πŸŽ‰

Searching for Bee Bot and Rainbow Puppy πŸŒˆ

Hey Poptropicans! We’ve got another side quest sneak peek, costume winner, activities away from screentime, a Crazy Club tribute, and cute criminals in the Pop universe. Let’s get started!

Last week, we got news of an upcoming side quest sequel for Goofball Island along with a sneak peek of a mechanical bee. Now, Bee Bot is back on our screens and colored in greens! Friend or foe, we don’t know.


We also have word on the winner of December’s costume contest: Rainbow Puppy by Hamburger Hamburger! This colorful creation will be available for free at the Baron’s when the ship arrives in early January.

Plus, check out all the other fun costume creations in this roundup reel:


For the winter break season, the Pop Creators’ Blog also shared some printable activity sheets, including this new word search puzzle:

They also shared some coloring pages of playing in snow, like last year. You can print them out or download them to color in digitally!


In the mood for something wilder? See if you can match the energy at the Crazy Club on Goofball Island, as in this short vid from Poptropica:

Also on Poptropica’s Instagram are a couple of new stories featuring fan art of villains at their cutest. Even the evil have their sweet spots!

Plus, Pop also posted a throwback of the Snowpocalypse mini game from years past β€” could this be a hint for its return this snowy season?

That’s a wrap for this update! Hope you’re enjoying the Grapple-Pap season on Pop with the Grapple-Gift Side Quest and decking yourself and your halls with Christmas gear. Cheers! πŸ˜„βœŒοΈ

Grapple Gifts and Gear Galore πŸŽπŸŽ

Happy Grapple-Pap, everyone! It’s time to celebrate Poptropica’s latest holiday tradition! Home Island is now a winter wonderland decked with colorful lights and crates, and the Baron is here with Grapple gear to spread some holiday cheer! β˜ƒοΈβ„οΈ

The Baron’s Cabin of Curiosities is stocked with holiday dΓ©cor and costumes galore! On your right, you’ll find some Grapple-Pap goodies such as a Grapple totem (150 credits), a stained glass chandelier (150 credits), a mistletoe garland (50 credits), a Grapple bust statue (150 credits), and a traditional Grapple-Garb outfit (50 credits).

Among these Grapple goods, you’ll find the three winning costumes from last month’s poll: Love Potion Demon, Ice Cream Cat, and Movie Geek. If you missed these costumes the first time around, now is your chance to get them for free! πŸ’—πŸ¨πŸΏ

On your left, you’ll find Maroon Moon’s Dr. Hare outfit, the winning design of November’s costume contest. All players can sport this casual look inspired by Poptropica’s most iconic villain for free! 🐰πŸ₯• The Baron can’t help highlighting her generosity if you talk to her.

Now that this hare-raising look is available in-game, the Pop Creators finally posted a video showcase of November’s costume contest entries.

Among last month’s submissions are awe-inspiring animals, Christmas costumes, and… Rick Astley. Now that’s one that’ll never let us down. Anyway, here are my favorite entries from this reel:

By the way, ask the Baron where her Grapple-wares are from, and she’ll mention a place we’ve never heard of: Kraghorn Island. The Baron says it’s not on our map, but might there be a future adventure there like the Baron’s Crusade? Maybe she’ll take us sometime; we’ll see!


In contrast to the Baron’s festive findings, Amelia added two spooky costumes to the Adventure Outfitters gallery: the bewitching Wicked Wizard outfit and the members-only Dark Wizard outfit. While these villainous vestments appear new to newer players, they actually debuted back in November 2019 during Home Island’s wizard makeover. New or not, both of these bewitching looks cost 350 credits.


Along with celebrating Grapple-Pap, members can celebrate the 12 Days of Member Gifts. On the first day, they received winter garlandsnow globe, and deer decorations to deck their clubhouse halls. Then, on the second day, they received violet, gray, and blue beanies to keep their detachable heads warm.

Day 3’s gifts aren’t here at the time of writing this post, but a strange development occurred. While I was on Poptropica today, I discovered that Day 1’s member gifts disappeared from my inventory. It turns out that these initially free decorations can now be purchased from the clubhouse store for 100 credits each. What’s the reason for this happening?


To end off this extensive holiday post, we have a new ad for the Disney Channel original movie “Christmas… Again?!” Watching the short ad gifts you two prizes with special spacebar actions. You can ride around and rev your engine in Ro’s Race Car, then summon a snowstorm, err, flurry with the Mall Santa Suit. πŸŽοΈπŸŽ…

This was a lot to cover, and there’s always more news popping into our feeds. Stay tuned to the Poptropica Help Blog for all the latest Poptropica news and more!

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!
