Linking Adventurers & Outfitters 💥🔗

Hey Poptropicans! After a brief hiatus for the holiday weekend (a belated blessed Easter if you celebrate! 🐇🥚), the Pop Creators are back with the next Steam island clue, store updates, and fan art features.

The tenth hint is an ad with some interesting criteria: “Adventurers Wanted! Must be familiar with: Search & Rescue, Fishing, Explosives, Heavy Lifting, Food service experience a plus.” 🧐

Can you think of an island that ticks off this whole list? Following the AS3 islands theory, Tough Spinner put forth a good case for Mystery of the Map: We “search & rescue” Octavian (or the kids), go “fishing” with a goblet, cause a rockslide with “explosives,” do “heavy lifting” with a big fur coat, and even serve food to hungry Vikings.

Whether or not this guess is right, we’ll soon find out. (Btw, keep up with past Steam hints here: 1, 2345678, 9.) 

In the meantime, we’ve uncovered another interesting detail about the upcoming Steam bundle. According to a Pop Creator’s reply to a comment on the official blog, players will be able to link active Poptropica accounts (as in desktop and mobile) on Steam! This could mean connecting credits, costumes, medallions, and so on. Cool!


Speaking of connecting adventurers with their outfits, the latest rotation at Adventure Outfitters on Home Island has sprung some fresh spring looks. Highlights include the Floral Spring Dress (350 credits), Jetpack (300), Fedora for pets (75), and more


Rounding off this update, enjoy the latest displays of fan art from Poptropica’s Instagram stories! (Protip: Click the artists’ names to view originals, including animations for the Friday Night Funkin’ post.)

Come back soon for the final few Steam clues, and pop on!

St. Patropican’s Pies in the Sky 🥧

Happy almost St. Patrick’s Day (this Thursday), Poptropicans! ‘Tis nearly time for the quirky holiday where one puts on green and pinches those who missed the memo. Lucky you who were warned! ☘️

Adventure Outfitters is still stocking lucky greens, and this week they’ve also added green goodies for pets. See it all on the Creators’ Blog »


St. Patrick’s isn’t the only special occasion celebrated by Poptropica this week! Monday, March 14 was Pi Day (3.14…), and Pop marked the event with an irrational graphic of Poptropica pies on their socials.

Also on Instagram, here are the latest character fan art features to grace Poptropica’s stories:

That’s a wrap for this update. Are you sensing a little monotony in the week-by-weeks of Pop life? Don’t miss our recent Open Letter to Poptropica where we discuss the game’s potential for more than our pies in the sky — and share your thoughts in the comments, too!

Baron's Airship, Fan Art Features, Member Gifts, Monthly Costume Contests, Social Media, Store, Uncategorized

Baron’s airship and art are back! ⚓

‘Allo Poptropicans! I am back and so is the Baron’s Airship, with 24 Carrot magic in the air~

Hop aboard and grab the most recent costume contest winner: the De-Man by Striped Thunder. (It’s free as always.) Remember these contests are held monthly, so there’s always a chance for you to join!

On the other side of the Cabin of Curiosities, there is also some memorabilia released straight from 24 Carrot Island. If any of you want to decorate your clubhouse like that classic island, now is your chance! The full set includes the Carrot King Diner’s Booth (50 credits), Table (50), Hanging Lamp (50), Salt-n-Pepper Shakers (10 credits), Exit Sign (50), and Carrot King Sign (100). 🥕

Also off to the side, you can grab the returning Gothic Cheerleader costume for 100 credits. Dark yet alluring.


Over at Adventure Outfitters, we have some new items for the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day, the holiday of lucky green. ☘️

This includes a returning Leprechaun Costume and several green furnishing items for your clubhouse. Does the “wear green” rule count in Pop if your home is decked out in it? 🤔 You can also opt for the Mardi Gras Jester Costume which technically has some green.

Also, here is a whole paragraph just for that lion plush because it is so cute. I’d want one IRL. 🦁


March member gifts have also arrived, sprouting a Flower Crown, Crazy Bee Follower, and Flower Bow. Perhaps Poptropica could have a prettier and less deadly Hunger Games in the future.


The official Instagram also shared more memes, art, and mixes of the two, including my own piece remembering the classic Astro-Knights Island (soon to have its release anniversary in April)!

And that’s all! I’ll get back to working on that Mordred piece now. Do you have any cute or cool ideas for future members’ gifts? And how are you going to “go green” on March 17? ☘️

Until my next news update, The Villain Saga post, or Astro-Knights ramble — see you around.

SomeBUNNY once told me the world… 💌

Aside from those of us whose most exciting part of Valentine’s Day was a cancelled dentist’s appointment, the PHB hopes you had a happy heart day. All the love to you, dear readers! 💖

The Poptropica Creators posted a series of cheesy and punny Valentine’s Cards, featuring many different characters (including some from islands and Realms yet to return).

Some of these are really cute. I love the background colors for the first collection! Too bad poor Balloon Boy has yet to land, even for a holiday!


The Adventure Outfitters shop has also been updated for the season, with the classic Heart Knight (300 credits) for all. Or if you want to be “one in Amelia-on,” try out the members-only Stylin’ Outfit (250): a nice mix between casual and fashionista.


Speaking of old islands, we have an ad that hearkens back to an early one. The Big Nate TV series is now being advertised on Home Island!

After watching the trailer, you get two interactive items: Cheezy Snacks and a Drum Kit. Upon activating each, a cloud of cheese dust covers your character, and the drums can be played! You can actually continue to walk while playing the drums (thanks for the tip, Gentle Dolphin).

Are any of you planning on seeing the Big Nate series on Paramount+? And regardless of your single/taken status, remember there are plenty of people, friends and family, who love you. I for one appreciate every reader here and look forward to your comments!
