My Little Art Features πŸ΄

Howdy Poptropicans, it’s LJ here with a bit of news for you today. Let’s pop into it!

Over on the Poptropica IG, the creators shared some stories which include a recent TikTok (which hit 200K+ plays) and a couple of fanarts β€” one by yours truly and one by Barefoot Knuckle (check out her feature in our Pop Fan Artist Spotlights!).


On the game itself, a sparkly new ad has emerged on the third page of the map for the upcoming My Little Pony: A New Generation movie! Go inside and talk to either Izzy or Sunny to start the race.

The game is pretty simple: all you have to do is jump over obstacles by clicking your mouse without losing your six lives. (Tip: you can double click to jump higher if you need to!)

Once you finish, you’ll win Sunny and Pipp (misspelled as ‘Pip’, grr) followers as well as a stellar Izzy outfit.

Dang, I think I look pretty gorgeous if I do say so myself. 😍 Anyway, the kickstarter film for MLP g5 premieres on Netflix in just over two weeks on Sept 24! Will you be watching? I definitely will. ✨

Thank you all for reading, friends. I’ll talk to you soon as I have something to address. Until then, pop on!

Fan Art Features, Social Media

Top tier cheers from your Pop peers

Hey Poptropicans! We’ve got fan art features, Poptropica Month inspo, and more β€” let’s pop into it!

Poptropicans have been hard at work creating as always, and besides the usual OCs, we’re also seeing Pop Month plans and entries for the Baron’s Red October costume design contest in the latest batch of stories from Poptropica’s Instagram. Take a look:


Speaking of Pop Month, the fan-run festivities have only just begun, but they’re already gaining traction!

If you’re looking for some participation ideas, TheOrangeHelium just released a 2021 updated top tier list for Poptropica islands, where you can categorize all the islands (including individual episodes, mini quests, and more) according to your preferences. Enjoy!


We’re wrapping up this post with a vintage-style Poptropica bandana! This versatile sheet is available IRL through Pop’s merch store, and it’s a beauty. The PHB’s Spotted Dragon recently shared her review here, and her review also just came out on the Creators’ Blog this week.

And even if you can’t get your hands on the real thing, we have a lovely Wild West Island ASG for you!

Keep on popping on, Poptropicans!

Baron's Airship, Social Media

Baron’s back with birthday bounty, and fans kick off Poptropica Month πŸ°

Hey Poptropicans! The Baron’s back, and so is Pop Month! With Poptropica turning 14, let’s pop into the September celebrations!

The much-hyped return of the Red Baron’s airship is finally here, and inside this sky pirate’s temporary Home Island landing, you’ll find the costume contest winner, the Shooting Star Hero, freely up for grabs. The arrow really does shoot a star! πŸ’«πŸΉ

Beside this outstanding otherworldly outfit, you’ll also find a call to the next costume design contest, which is already underway! This time, there’s a twist: this “Red October” contest will have 6 winners chosen to be made into the game for the Red Baron’s next pop-up. Check out the Creators’ Blog for more details Β»

Also on the shop floor, you’ll find various other goodies for sale: the Old Cheese (50 credits), Elf Queen costume (50), Hero Fountain (150), Bit-Pig (50), Bit-Cake (50), and even a free Big Cake costume! 🍰

The total bill if you’re grabbing everything is only 350 credits, which is much lower than previous Baron visits and can easily be settled with the 1,000-credit reward from Amelia’s mini quest. Seems like our Pop Petitions have paid off once again!


In other news, September means it’s Poptropica Month! Pop Month, if you haven’t already caught onto the hype, is a month-long fan-run event of sharing Poptropica-themed videos to a common playlist hosted by the Dimension Bros on YouTube. Check the deets:

Besides YouTube, you can also participate on Instagram by tagging @dimension_bros. The PHB’s Gentle Dolphin has already come up with a fun little reel showing off colorful Pop outfits with a jam! 🎨πŸŽ₯

For more Pop Month ideas and inspiration, or just ways to show support even without making your own clips, check out the Dimension Bros’ PHB guest post on video-making tips and keep up with the Pop Month 2021 playlist here.

While this event isn’t sponsored by the PHB, we encourage all Poptropicans to have fun with it and celebrate Poptropica’s legacy. Happy birthday, Poptropica, and here’s to a poppin’ month! πŸ₯‚

Clubhouse Crawl, Fan Art Features, Social Media

Knock knock, Clubhouse Crawl πŸ πŸŒ™

Heyo, Poptropicans! Today on the docket we have one clubhouse crawl, two TikTok tapes, and three fan art features. Let’s pop that door open…

…and step right into this cozy crib from Golden Moon! This fuchsia furnished home is the first to be featured in a new series from the Pop Creators called “Clubhouse Crawl.” You can find all the sweet snaps on the official blog as well as a quick video on their Instagram!

The Clubhouse Crawl feels somewhat like the PHB’s Clubhouse Tours, but instead of Pop homeowners showing off their own spaces, the Pop Creators are randomly picking places to pop into and write about! According to the blog, no submissions are necessary to be featuredβ€”just work on decorating your dwelling and you never know when someone might pop in for a peek. For now, check out Golden Moon’s!

(Though if you do want to share your hangout in your own words, you can always send in a guest post for the PHB!)


Next up on the clock are two clips from Poptropica’s TikTok! First, for International Dog Day on August 26, we get a neon green pupper trying on various pet items to the classic jam “Who Let the Dogs Out”:

And the day before, the Creators popped in with this strange filtered face meme with a voice saying, “Yes I game, I know I don’t look like your typical gamer but look…” followed by a player sneaking her way around the Pelican Rock prison. (You can also catch the clip on Twitter!)

For more TikTok talents, check out “A walk through PoptropiTikTok“!


Finally, we have a few fan art features over on Poptropica’s Instagram stories! Enjoy some classic villains and a now-completed Popsona:

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

Fan Art Features, Social Media, Store

Sporty and artsy costumes in time for August! β˜€

Hello Poptropicans! We have a bit of store-related news, as well as some more fanart features on Instagram and the August costume contest!

Naturally with the Olympics hype there is bound to be some sports-related goods up, and this month in the Poptropica Store is the new Speedy Cycler costume. There are also several classic costumes and more recent ones, including the Spring Floral Dress, Barbarian Warrior, and the epic Acidic Dinosaur!!! πŸ¦–

The Creators also included a reference to a certain… let’s just say a speedy cycling incident in their blog post.


On the subject of costumes, the Monthly Costume Contest has returned for August! So, if you ever get a good idea that you would like to see in-game, don’t be afraid to show off your creativity! It’s quite epic to see fan-made creations in game, and it’s always good to practice your drawing and design skills!

In case you missed it earlier, Creators also posted a video on their official YouTube channel featuring past submissions from July’s contest:


To conclude, here are four fantastic fanarts shared on the Creators’ Instagram stories. We have one very impressive Pop OC, and three great colored pages from the Poptropica fan-produced coloring book!

Do any of you plan to enter the costume contest, perhaps to make more giant epic dinosaurs for me to review? Let us know!
