Poptropica Store, Social Media

The magical art of fashion 🧙‍♀️✨

Hello, everyone! We have a short and sweet news update for you today!

Yesterday, the Creators released the newest store update and gladly shared photos of this week’s roster in their recent post. For the most part, not much has changed from last week’s roster except for a few items being switched out. However, one brand new costume can be found in the sea of familiar fashions…

Our newest addition to Poptropica’s clothing collection is the Violet Witch costume, which appears to be inspired by Scarlet Witch’s outfit in “WandaVision”. This spellbinding look can be purchased by members for 350 credits.


The Creators also featured two pieces of fan art on their recent Instagram story, as well. The first picture is a fun crossover starring Dr. Hare and Reimu Hakurei from “The Touhou Project”, and the second picture shows a cute canine Poptropican.

That’s it for now. What do you think of the new Violet Witch costume? Are there any new costumes that you would like to see in Poptropica? Let us know in the comments below!

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!

Getting our bear-ings on store and more 🐻

Hey Poptropicans, we come bear-ing a few bits of news: a mini-quest release date, a store rotation with a highly hyped item, and several works of colorful fan art. Let’s pop in for a look!

First, the Creators’ Blog announced a new mini-quest coming soon, and it’s coming up fast: this Thursday, May 13! The official sneak peek bearly gives you a hint for what’s to come, but in case you missed it, this little game had an accidental early release—so have another pic:

According to the official blog, this special event will be for all players and can be replayed for more credits, so get ready to rack them up!


Next up, the arrival of another week means another Adventure Outfitters store rotation! We’ve seen most of these at one point or another, but the Pastel Hoodie is new to Amelia’s store.

So iconic is the Pastel Hoodie that blue-haired Silent Frog, who appears to be Poptropica’s social media manager now, showed up on Pop’s Instagram with several stories hyping up the new look:


Speaking of IG stories, Poptropica also recently shared another round of vivid fan art pieces from the community, including a couple of interesting gender and sexuality-related headcanons for Black Widow:

That’s all for this post! Now go forth and bear Thursday in mind for that special event coming up, pick up your very own pastel hoodie in the store, and keep on popping on, Poptropicans. 🐻✌️

Fairy Tale Island, Social Media

Fairytale fever and villain fan art 🏰😈

Hey Poptropicans! 👋 Fairytale Island has been out for just over a week now, and with it we’ve gotten a video playthrough from the creators, tons of fan art, and even a spoiler-free official tour page.

In case you missed it, the PHB’s also released resources for the island, with a Fairytale Island Guide containing a written walkthrough, pics, and trivia, as well as our Fairytale Island Review where we shared our thoughts on this new adventure (and enjoyed yours in the comments). The creators even dropped their thanks on our Instagram post!


Speaking of Instagram, the Pop creators have been back at it with more fan art features on their story! Check out the latest gallery:

It sure is fun to see different takes on Poptropica characters old and new, and Rumplestiltskin is fast becoming another fandom favorite! 😈

That’s all for this update. Catch up on more news and other fun stuff in our posts below, and keep on popping, Poptropicans! ✌️

Member Gifts, Membership, Social Media

A new mini-quest?! May we bear witness? 🐻👀

Hey, Poptropicans! Gentle Dolphin here with news surrounding our favorite computer game. We’ll be taking a look at May’s new member gifts, some Instagram art features, and a mysterious new mini-quest. Let’s dive in!

A new month means new member gifts! The members of May will receive a colorful Rainbow Kite, a soaring Pump Rocket, and a somewhat dated LED Fidget Spinner. If you’re interested in owning these items, you can become a member by purchasing a membership or entering the PHB’s Free Membership Giveaway!


On April 30th, a new mini-quest appeared on Home Island but was deleted later that day. Where did it come from, and where did it go? Our theory is that the Creators accidentally released the quest too early then swiftly deleted it when they realized what happened. This is supported by a notification on the Messages app, teasing an upcoming mini-quest.

Here’s what we know about the quest so far: you encounter poor Ishmael on Home Island, who is being crushed by a sad momma bear. You offer to help the two by finding the bear’s five lost cubs in a snowy forest reminiscent to the wilderness of Survival Island.

It seems that you would receive something after completing this quest, but the game gets stuck on an infinite loading screen after you collect all five cubs. It’s good to know that the Creators are now taking the time to remove bugs for the final release, but it’s still strange how the quest got accidentally leaked in the first place. We’ll have to wait and see what the full quest has in store.


Last but not least, the Creators featured some more art on their Instagram stories. We have a dozen creative pieces ranging from Poptropica edits to illustrations. Look, there’s also some fan art for the new Fairy Tale Island!

That’s all for now. How would you rate this month’s member gifts? Do you have any thoughts about the upcoming mini-quest? Let us know in the comments below!

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!

TikTok, threads, and more!

Howdy Poptropicans! It’s LJ here with a couple news and updates.

So Poptropica is on TikTok now (@poptropicacreator)… interesting. I’m wondering what they’re going to share other than what we already see on Instagram or the Creators’ Blog. Perhaps some nostalgic content? They announced their arrival to TikTok on their Instagram story with a slideshow of scenes from old islands:

Update: This video later became their first TikTok post, including a slightly chipper voice reading out the text shown on-screen. (Thanks to paris for the news!) The text reads: “If you know, you know. 2000’s kids definitely remember. Poptropica is still putting out new islands!!”


Next, another week has passed which means there a few new items on sale at Adventure Outfitters including a couple of classic costumes like the Rock Star and Little Demon. You can see the newly available items indicated below:


In more exciting news, Fairytale Island is practically here! The highly anticipated Dream Island contest winner launches for all players tomorrow (April 22)! I hope the creators will bring back the World of Champions map. I really liked that feature because it was cool to see where you ranked in terms of how fast you were able to beat the quest.

In spirit of the new island, Poptropica has yet again featured another set of amazing entries for the Fairytale Fan Art Challenge over on their Instagram page — by various artists (some of whom we’ve featured here on the blog as part of our Pop Fan Artist Spotlight series). You can check out some more of the awesome submissions by viewing their Fan Challenges story highlight on IG.

Don’t forget that time is almost up to submit your art for the contest. The deadline is tonight at 8PM PST (9 hours from now), so hurry it up if you want a chance to win those credits!

Thanks for reading as always and I’ll talk to you in the next one. Pop on!
