Very Important Memes for Comical Peeps ๐ŸŒŸ

Hey Poptropicans! Pop in for a stop at the shop, self-proclaimed cursed memes, a new VIP, and a round of fan art, including comics. Let’s go!

First up, Adventure Outfitters has restocked with rain gear and florals for the spring season, along with matching fits for pets. ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒธ

This week on Instagram, Poptropica’s been popping with memes. Here’s one of a good pink bunny… not at all like the mascot we know! ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿฅ•

Another one features a UFO โ€” oh wait, we do know what this wild object is in the sky: the Poptropica blimp! ๐Ÿ›ธ As the tags say, #cursedmemes.

More strange shenanigans are happening on social media: Poptropica just awarded a Very Important Poptropican (VIP) badge to Pop fan Mighty Rock (who’s active on Instagram and Twitter) โ€” reviving the VIP program that hasn’t been touched in over 5 years!

The Official VIP program launched in 2017, offering the right to display a spiffy badge, sneak peeks to share of then-upcoming Crisis Caverns Island, and promising more perks that never materialized, such as VIP sites being linked to from Poptropica’s website. With this development, will we see more of the VIP program in the future? As one of the OG VIP sites, here at the PHB, we certainly hope so! ๐Ÿคž

Last but not least, here are the latest works of fan art featured on Poptropica’s Instagram stories. Click on the artists’ names to view posts in full โ€” especially for the comic adaptation of Early Pop Island! ๐ŸŽฉ

April Fashion Brings Woodworks Clashin’ ๐Ÿชตโš”๏ธ

Hello, everyone! Time to check out the latest Pop updates. But first, a word from our sponsor: ME! Don’t worry, Slanted Fish gave me permission.

This week, I have been hosting a “Favorite Poptropica Character Tournament” on Twitter! In spite of the public outcry regarding certain matchups, it has been fun watching the votes and tears pour in. Round 2 is currently underway, and you reading the PHB can participate! You can vote for your favorites via Twitter, or this Google Forms poll! ๐Ÿ—ณ๏ธ๐Ÿ†

Now we return to our regularly scheduled blogging. Adventure Outfitters welcomed a new display just in time for April. Out with the green stuff, and in with the stylin’ fits. Paired with the chic fashion are a few random goodies like a smiling cloud, a reversible octopus plush, a jetpack, and a rideable bug.

As pointed out by Dizzy Feather on the Poptropica Help Chat, this month’s selection of items is near identical to last April’s display. While recycling monthly displays isn’t new for Poptropica, it gets old for players itching to collect new gear. It’s almost like they’re saving the new stuff for members, “wooden” you think?

Speaking of which, April’s member gifts have flown into paying players’ inventories. Members can now don the Woodworks Outfit, Woodworks Sword, and Woodworks Wings. While the wings won’t carry you through the wind, they can pop in and out for a cool visual effect.

“Wood” you like a membership? Enter our monthly free membership giveaway for a chance to win one! ๐ŸŽ

Finally, here are some fan art features from Pop’s recent Instagram stories. As per usual, we have art of fan-favorite characters along with oodles of OCs! Click the artists’ names for the full posts.

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!

Green Sights and a Quiet Heist

Hey Poptropicans, pop in for shop drops and gems for mems!

March-ing into St. Patrick’s season, Adventure Outfitters is right on trend with a section of “green stuff” for your clubhouse. ๐Ÿ€ Also on the shop floor, you’ll find Leprechaun and Jester costumes, as well as a cute lion plush. And in the middle are some cozy fits. Lucky you!

Shhh… members get more! March’s member gifts have stealthily arrived, equipping would-be thieves with a Quiet Heist Grapple Hook, Quiet Heist Boots, and Quiet Heist Outfit featuring a beanie with long hair, sunglasses, puffer jacket, and dark pants. Happy heisting? ๐Ÿฅท

While opening up your menu, you might continue to encounter “Daily Questions.” Besides the pop culture questions seen earlier, we’re now starting to see more general questions, such as this one about winning contests โ€” though we’re still without a place to show our answers.

Meanwhile in meme land, the Pop Creators continue to be fixated on 24 Carrot Island, and in particular its magical drink dispenser. Seems they’re too busy to give us any other kinds of updates these days…

Wearing Cats and Comparing Islands ๐Ÿ˜ป

First up: With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, the shop floor of Adventure Outfitters is filled with all things romantic, though nothing truly new. Many of these lovely items are available to all, though the “Crushing” head and a couple costumes are for members only. ๐Ÿ’

As Instagram shows, there’s also a new rotation of costumes with cats in the spotlight. Check out the cat hoodie and backpack in stock! ๐Ÿฑ

Over on the Pop Creators’ Blog, guest writer Invisible Ring is back with a part two to her previous post comparing the fan-designed, contest-winning “Dream Islands” of Poptropica. This time she focuses on Goofball and Jade Scarab, concluding both to be easy yet exciting.

Finally, here’s a whole bunch of fan art features from the past couple of weeks on Poptropica’s Instagram stories! From costume designs to a redraw of a scene from Survival Island, there’s plenty to behold. Be sure to click the artists’ names to view their original posts in greater detail!
