Baron witness to firing squid stories ๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿ”ฅ

Hey Poptropicans! We’ve got news of a side quest, a Squid Game takeover, Cinder’s punk rock glory, and fan art stories. Let’s fire away!

It seems the Halloween surprise we’ve been waiting for may not be the return of Zomberry Hero, but something completely new and involving the Baron! According to the Pop Creators’ Blog, “The Baronโ€™s headed on an adventure and rumor has it, youโ€™re the prime candidate to come along.” They even shared this stunning Pop portrait of the Baron with Ack, the monkey and first mate! Nice touch with the monkey wrench.

With the Baron here only until the end of Red October, and the mention of the Halloween surprise, it seems likely we’ll get to play this upcoming side quest sometime this month. Plus, unlike Rumpel’s Challenge, the adventure will be available to all players!

Stay tuned for more news of the Baron’s latest tricks and treats. For now, enjoy the Red October skies and all the fun stuff aboard the big airship!


Turns out there are bloodier shenanigans than the Baron on Poptropica, and they involve a much-hyped Netflix show! The Pop Creators have advanced from simple Squid Game memes to recreating its deadly world in the game itself, as seen in their latest TikTok clip:

While Squid Game with its firing squads is not made for children, Poptropicans of all ages can still appreciate this kid-friendly tribute that takes the Gamer Clubhouse to a whole new level with its stacked beds and coffins. As for the prize: how about 45.6 little glowing bunnies?


Speaking of fiery tales, remember Cinder’s iconic transformation from Fairytale Island? Poptropica shared a clip of the punk rock princess on TikTok a couple months ago, and now, it’s available as a YouTube short:


Wrapping up this post is a series of posts shared on Poptropica’s Instagram stories, including an answer box to share about your Halloween ‘fit, as well as tons of fan art. Enjoy!

Remember: Two more weeks until the PHB’s Halloween Costume Contest closes on Friday, October 29! Get your grim grooves and whimsical whooshes going strong, and see you in the next one! ๐Ÿ‘ป๐ŸŽƒ

Grins and grooves for Goofball Island ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŒณ

Hey Poptropicans! We’re not goofing around with this announcement โ€” we’ve got sneak peeks for the next Poptropica island!

Poptropica’s been busy lately with side quests and other specials, but they haven’t forgotten about making islands. The latest one in the works is Goofball Island, which was announced as a winner of the 2020 Dream Island contest. Take a look at their wavy wonders!

As we see in this first ever sneak peek, the “land of Goof” is lined with curving everything, from trees to lampposts โ€” and even slanted fish on the Crazy Club? We’re not sure what this grinning building is all about, but we get another look at it through this sketch (sans “Toof”-paste):

Are the dancing creatures and poofy trees giving anyone else Dr. Seuss storybook vibes? In any case, that silly energy fits in here, as the plot is all about an unusually cheery town that’s about to have all its color wiped out by mad scientist Dr. Blandston.

Back to that first picture, we find some curious things of note, like the fact that our boy Ned Noodlehead from Super Power Island is hanging out by the Crazy Club, likely just as a stand-in for scale. We also see a building for Boskos Car Fixing and Embroidery, which seems a strange combo. And wacky faces are everywhere, from the clouds to the gate gnomes and birds (real and inflatable). ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿคช

Besides the announcement of this winning island idea back in January, this is the first time we’re hearing about Goofball Island, and it seems to be shaping up to be quite the adventure! Stay tuned for the latest news on this upcoming island, and let’s hope they (don’t) goof it up!


Poptropica’s Instagram story has been busy too, with last calls to enjoy Hoptropica birthday goodies and a slew of fan art, including a couple of drawing process videos. Hippity hop before they drop!

That’s it for this update! How hyped are you for Goofball Island? Have you made the most of Hoptropica’s birthday visit? Share with us in the comments, and keep on popping on, Poptropicans! โœŒ๏ธ

My Little Art Features: A New Challenge Rumbles ๐Ÿฆ„โœจ

Hear ye, hear ye! We will soon be returning to the fantastical world of Fairytale Island in the upcoming side quest: Rumpel’s Challenge!

The Creators’ announcement goes on to explain that the quest will continue the island’s story and answer some of our burning questions. The promise of tying loose ends reminds us of the Fairytale Fanfic Contest, in which fans wrote their own endings to Fairytale Island. How closely will the official tale match fanfiction? We’ll have to wait and see.

However, this story has a dark twist: only members can take on Rumpel’s challenge. This news may remind some players of Poptropica’s members-only bonus quests, which were extra quests added to the endings of islands during the early 2010s. It’s disappointing that not everyone will be able to end Fairytale Island on a satisfying note. We can only wish that the Creators will eventually give every player the chance to finish the tale…

To tide us over until the release, the Creators graced us with some concept sketches for a new character! The image name is Queen Ideas_2, so it looks like we’ll be meeting the queen of Fairytale Island! Judging by the art shown below, she appears to be regal ruler who loves cats and knows how to use a sword. She also has a curly updo similar to Cinderella, so could they be related? Where was she during the main story? Theorize away, Poptropicans!


But wait! We have more news for you, though prepare to feel some dรฉjร  vu.

Some of you may have already played the ad game for My Little Pony: A New Generation. In a surprising development, there is now a second My Little Pony ad on Poptropica! It’s not often that Poptropica hosts two separate ads for the same product at the same time. There is no game in this particular ad, though. All you need to do is watch the trailer to win two new pony prizes: the Zipp Outfit and the Hitch Outfit.

Here’s a neat tidbit about these prizes: if you press the spacebar while equipping one of the prizes, that respective pony’s cutie mark will pop up on screen for a second. Stop by both ad spots and win all five prizes, one for each of Gen 5’s Mane 5. Gotta befriend em’ all! ๐Ÿ’ซ๐Ÿงถ๐Ÿ›ก๏ธ๐ŸŽคโšก๏ธ


The official Poptropica Instagram account shared eight pieces of fan art in yesterday’s stories. Among them were spooky and silly entries for the now closed costume contest, and they all look like they could be great additions to the game. There is also art of original characters and airships, as well as some Rumpelstiltskin fan art just in time for the announcement of Rumpel’s challenge.

That’s all for now! Are you looking forward to the follow-up to Fairytale Island? How do you think the tale will end? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!

Spellbinding sketches, dazzling dรฉcor, and famed felons โœ๏ธโœจ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

Hello, everyone! It’s time check out some new Poptropica updates regarding drawing, interior decorating, and kidnapping. Need context for that last sentence? Keep on reading!

First, the Creators announced a new mini quest coming to Poptropica. While they didn’t say much regarding the story, they did gladly share a thumbnail sketch. It shows Amelia and a black cat taking a selfie while two other characters are in the middle of a magical baking mishap.

The woman with curly hair and glasses looks familiar. In fact, her likeness is featured alongside Amelia and (formerly) Xavier on a set of statues on Home Island. It looks like we’ll finally get to learn the identity of this studious sorceress. ๐Ÿง™โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ“š


Five new furnishings have graced the clubhouse store! Players can decorate their virtual homes with a Poptropica flag (100 credits), a set of lighting panels (75 credits), a summer wreath (150 credits), and an oil diffuser (100 credits). Meanwhile, members can make their clubhouses extra colorful with the LED fan (150 credits). Here’s a picture I took of the new items in my clubhouse.


A new video showed up on the official Poptropica TikTok account, but it also made an appearance in Pop’s latest Instagram story. This new video highlights some of the more problematic elements of our favorite villains, particularly the fact that they all share kidnapping tendencies. Here are a few stills as an example.


Last and certainly not least, Golden Wolf returned to the Creators’ Blog to share more of her art. In her latest guest post, GW showcased fan art of myself, PHB founder Slanted Fish, and fellow writer Smart Icicle! Thank you so much, Golden Wolf! โค๏ธ๐Ÿฅฐโค๏ธ๐Ÿฅฐ

GW also mentioned that, every month, she will draw an anime character as a Poptropican and share it on her future guest posts. As an example, she drew Sakura Haruno from Naruto, which was featured in Poptropica’s July Costume Contest video compilation. Which anime character do you want to see drawn in the Poptropica style?

That’s all I have for you today. What do you think the new mini quest will be about? Which villains should be called out next? Let us know in the comments below!

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!

Be our guest for this sweet new quest ๐Ÿญ๐Ÿฌ

Hey, Poptropicans! The Creators suddenly announced a brand new mini quest coming soon to Poptropica.

Go crazy for the Candy Crazed Mini Quest! Here’s a sweet peek at the upcoming quest which supposedly ties into Fairytale Island:

The announcement also revealed two new characters who will be making their debut in this quest. Meet chewy chums Dot and Gummy! While they may not be major characters in the story, they are cute faces who help liven the sugary atmosphere. Who wants one of these guys as a follower?

It’s strange that a new mini quest was announced just one week after the release of the Lost Cubs Mini Quest. The promo art is super cute and colorful, but how will the finished product play out? Will it be a sweet surprise or a terrible toothache? We will find out for ourselves when this mini quest comes out next week on Thursday, May 27!


The Creatorsโ€™ Blog also put out another call for guest writers. Do you love Poptropica and want to share your love with other fans? This time, the Creators are allowing guest writers to submit more than just their writing. Guests can also submit their fan art and fan videos, too!

If you are at least 13 years old, feel free to apply through Pop’s official Submissions page. Let the Creators know what you can contribute to the official Poptropica Creators’ Blog. You can submit anything as long as it relates to Poptropica.

If writing for the Creators’ Blog isn’t your thing, then you could submit a guest post to us here at the Poptropica Help Blog! There’s no age limit for writers, and your work will reach a similar audience of Poptropica players. You can learn more by visiting our Write for the PHB page.

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!
