Long live the pony

Hello, everyone β€” it’s Lucky Joker here! We’ve got little ponies and large cats in this update.

Poptropica announced the release of a new pet that I’m sure many of you will love: the pony! You can find it in the Pet Barn right now. Take a look at this adorable artwork by Pop Creator, Blue Tooth, showing the little stallion:

I got one and made it my own by coloring it pink and adding a rainbow unicorn horn on it. I haven’t decided on a name yet, so feel free to leave any suggestions in the comments! πŸ™‚

Unfortunately, the new pony pet is only available to members, so non-members still only have the puppy and the kitten as options. Maybe we’ll get some new pets in the future that will be available to everyone soon!


Moving on to the advertisement, a new video stand can be found on Home Island for Disney’s upcoming live-action feature, The Lion King β€” which hits theaters July 18.

To get the prize, all you have to do is, well, watch the video. Tada! A Simba Mane & Roar just for you. Are you gonna see the movie?


Well, that’s it for today, folks. New pet, new island β€” wow, July’s looking to be a good month for Poptropica.

We actually have our own shenanigans going on here on the PHB too β€” like our annual Poppies event (we’re currently in the Nomination Round!) and our new Poptropica Yearbook series that debuted today. Check them out!

Stay popping, Poptropicans!

Let’s be friends with Messy Crown and Lizard Wizard

Hey, friends! This is Gentle Dolphin, resident pop blogger and social media sleuth, here with some pop news! Poptropica was pretty active on social media yesterday, so let’s get started with a post regarding Poptropica’s in-game social media: the player wall, aka the friends page.

Yesterday afternoon, the Creators turned to the internet to ask players for their thoughts on the player wall. On the Creators’ Blog, they wrote, “We’re wanting your feedback on the player wall – what do you love, what do you think we should add, what do you want removed!?!”

Players replied to their Instagram post and gave some good feedback on the player wall. A lot of people asked for the return of previous features such as island photos, pop quizzes, and tribe common rooms. A couple others requested for more customization options for non-members. However, one comment from Instagram user ben_246 stood out from the rest. There, he sent a clear message to the Creators:

“Where πŸ‘ is πŸ‘ the πŸ‘ poptropican πŸ‘ of πŸ‘ the πŸ‘ week πŸ‘ or πŸ‘ house πŸ‘ of πŸ‘ the πŸ‘ week πŸ‘ or πŸ‘ even πŸ‘ realm πŸ‘ of πŸ‘ the πŸ‘ week πŸ‘”

The Creators heard his cry and and responded, “Coming tonight, we promise!!” True to their word, a new entry in the “Look of the Week” series was posted on Instagram later that night; it was then posted on the Creators’ Blog and on Twitter earlier this morning. The second “Look of the Week” winner isΒ Messy Crown:

On the Creators’ Blog, Blue Tooth wrote, “Messy Crown caught our eye with her ears and headphones combo!” Congratulations, Messy Crown! You have the honor of joining Young Turtle in the “Look of the Week” Hall of Fame!

If you’d like the chance to be featured in the next “Look of the Week”, put on your best outfit and head over to the Blast-Off Arcade. Who knows, one of the Creators may notice you and give you a spot.


But wait, there’s more! Earlier today, I went to the Creators’ Blog to see the new “Look of the Week” post and found another postΒ that was made today! This post contains a picture of a lizard wearing a wizard hat and a pearl necklace. A small note in the picture states that you can get these items if you check out the pet shop updates.

pet shop update-may19

Sure enough, there are four new pet accessories in the pet shop: a sorcerer hat, a pair of pink sunglasses, a pearl necklace, and some cute blue eyes. These are really nice items to give pets; it’s a shame that they’re all members-only.

That’s all for now (unless the Creators decide to post something else tonight). What are your thoughts on these Poptropica posts? Thoughts on the player wall (friends page)? What do you think of the new pet accessories? Let us know in the comments below!

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!

Suspicious bunny alert: pink, male, wears goggles

Blue Tooth over on the Creators’ Blog thinks we should be wary of some rabbit situation, but it’s not totally clear what’s going on. Somehow, though, a picture has surfaced of a bunny that doesn’t quite look like all the rest, and the captionβ€”“infiltration day 4”β€”garners some suspicion.

In response to an accusation from Instagram user @chloe.muncy saying, “Dr. Hare is a furry confirmed,” the Creators responded:

why would you say this on our very nice photo of what is quite clearly 3 bunnies πŸ‡πŸ‡πŸ‡

The bunnies at the Pet Barn still had plenty of carrots, and nothing seemed out of the ordinaryβ€”although I did notice a pair of Round Glasses for sale that we hadn’t reported on before. And they’re for everyone! πŸ‘“

So, what’s up with these furry animals? Are the Creators hinting at more adventures with Dr. Hare? We’ll keep you posted if we hear more.

In the meantime, you can supposedly watch some video to earn credits over on the Home Island billboard, but all I got was a “try again later.”

Catch you later, Poptropicans!

Accessorize your pet and your clubhouse!

Hello, everyone! It’s Lucky Joker here with some cool news for you all today.

Firstly, the Pet Barn’s got some cute new accessories for your little companions! You can now buy: a pink afro (members only), a grey beard, a blue bow,(members only) and big brown eyes β€” which are really adorable, by the way.

To commemorate the new pet stuff, Pop Creator Blue Tooth posted this drawing of Pop pets Dorf and Pepper with the beard and bowtie:

“Did you know that bunnies loaf just like cats? Here’s Dorf and his best friend Pepper modeling some of the new items available in the pet barn.”

Now moving on to the more exciting stuff! Blue Tooth has announced that every other week (the Fridays in between “Look of the Week“) the Creators will be recognizing and featuring a Poptropican’s clubhouse on Twitter, Instagram, and the Creators’ Blog, so get customizing, folks!

Will your clubhouse make “Clubhouse of the Week“?

Thank you all for reading, and I’ll talk to you guys soon. Pop on!

Shops poppin’ up: pet accessories and store accessibility

How are you, Poptropicans? It’s Lucky Joker here with TWO incredible updates! Let’s pop right on into it.

Firstly, pet accessories are here! There’s an array of cute and funny accessories for your pet(s) in the all-new pet store. You can access the pet store by going into the Pet Barn and clicking the green credit icon at the bottom left-hand corner of your screen.

The items are divided into four categories as seen below β€” head, face, body, and eyes. Here is the current stock:

Also, Poptropica recently brought us a new store format so that it lasts past the pulling of the plug for Flash in 2020. Like the pet one, there are also categories to divide the items β€” costumes, followers, powers, pranks, and miscellaneous.

I’m totally a fan of this new design, but there are a few small issues I take with the update in general. One, items cost even with membership β€” unlike before, when they were free. (I guess that wheel update from last month is going to be coming in handy after all.) Two, a lot of items are members only. Like, A LOT. More than half as a matter of fact. I think both members and non-members deserve a little better.

To close out this post on a positive note, Poptropica teased at the possibility of a couple of islands coming our way in their latest post. I’m super excited about it!

So what do you guys think of all of this? Likes, dislikes, ideas β€” whatever it is, leave it down in the comments below! Talk to you guys later, thanks for reading.

The poppin’ pets have arrived!

What’s up, Poptropicans? Oh, that’s right β€” the Pet Barn is finally open! Looks like the Poptropica Creators really stuck to their promise. πŸ˜€

openpetbarn

As previous sneak peeks have told us, there are five pets available. These include a puppy, a kitten, a bunny, a lizard, and a goat β€” the last three being members only.

Disappointingly, there isn’t much else to do in the pet barn other than adopting a pet andΒ using the pet colorizerΒ to change its color (which is available to everyone!). It is really cute though.

Here are my two pets β€” Clover the bunny and Ivy the lizard!

Well, that about covers this update. I really like the idea of pets… I’m just hoping we get more customization options in the near future; clothing options would be particularly great, Creators. πŸ˜‰ Also, additional features for the pets would be cool because right now they’re essentially just followers. So, what are your thoughts? Leave them down in the comments!

Thanks for reading as always. Catch you guys in the next one, pop on!
