Store styles up for grabs, other surprises Under Wraps 🎁🕺

What’s popping, Poptropicans? We’ve got flannel flair, mummy madness, and sidebar snippets to see. Let’s pop right in!

A new week brings another refresh to Adventure Outfitters, and this time, Amelia’s brought out a new Flannel Tank (200 credits) for the fall vibes. We also have the return of the classic Fairy Queen costume (350 credits, members only). See the full stock on the Creators’ Blog »

But wait, there’s more! *inhale* The clubhouse store is also stocking some new gear, and don’t blink, ’cause we got pink.

New decor includes the Daisy Printed Tapestry (100 credits), Rocking Gamer Chair (150), Square Storage Ottoman (75), Pink School Backpack (75), Inhale & Exhale Wall Prints (100), and a College-Style Electric Scooter (100). Whatchu think? *exhale*

On the subject of store stuff, don’t forget that today’s the deadline for the Baron’s Red October costume design contest! You have until Tuesday, September 14th at 8pm PST/11 pm EST to submit your creation(s) for a chance to get your design in the game. Good luck!


In other news, there’s a new video ad with prizes from Disney Channel’s new movie, Under Wraps! To watch it, click on its icon on the map or hop on over to 24 Carrot Island. After the viewing, you’ll get an I’m A Mummy costume and the Dancing Mummy Follower!

Pressing the spacebar makes two different things happen. Wearing the costume allows you to dance, and using the follower allows Harold the mummy to dance. Use both prizes simultaneously for best results. 🕺🕺


Speaking of video, over on the Pop Creators’ Blog, there’s a new sidebar section dedicated to Poptropica videos! Like the video at the bottom corner of the game screen, this little area loops short clips of scenes from the game that you might also find on their YouTube channel.

It’s certainly an interesting addition, and one that makes more sense being placed here than on the game screen, where there’s already plenty of movement going on. What with TikTok virality and now this, it looks like Poptropica’s popping off with the vids!

One last thing to note: the Creators’ Blog has been dropping some hints about birthday celebrations coming up, including something that involves us, the players. What might it be? We’ll have to see…

Keep an eye out for upcoming news about special events celebrating Poptropica’s 14th birthday and most importantly, YOU!

Birthday salutations and celebrations to come 🎉

Smart Bubbles here, with another Poptropica news and store update! As many of you know, this September marks Poptropica’s 14th birthday!

The Creators made this blog post marking the event. It’s odd to think so many players are younger than the game itself (though I can’t relate)!

Along with the expected hype, the Creators also announced that “players will have access to exclusive, FREE costumesgenerous credit opportunities, and rereleased mini games from Pop’s past.”

It will be interesting to see how far back they go with the last one. I never really got a chance to play the previous Hoptropica. Or perhaps they might even bring back true classics like the Haunted House, just in time for Halloween!

The Creators also encouraged submission of fan creations to social media, of any form (as long as it’s age appropriate). Work sent through the submissions form or tagged to the Creators will also be submitted for a chance in the birthday exhibition! (And if you’re into video, fans are hosting Poptropica Month as well.)


Along with birthday announcements, we also have some store additions: Three new costumes have arrived at Amelia’s Adventure Outfitters: the Oversized Polo, Navy Cardi, and Cool Denim, all of which are currently members-only (and none of which beat the Acidic Dinosaur*). They also restocked some older costumes for non-members: Coolin, Biker, Natural Breeze, and Vibes.

*This is a statement made by Maryann/Smart Bubbles only and does not represent the views of all the PHB, despite being objective fact.

There is also a comeback of some furniture and accessories for the clubhouse, such as a trampoline, wall butterfly, skateboard, and a music speaker.

The September member gifts were also announced and added for premium players: the Scooter Rider, Squishy & Pink, and Karaoke Sparkles. Perhaps we’ll see more cute stress balls resembling other Pop Icons in the future? 🤔

The Creators also promoted membership at the end of the post, giving members a… familiar title.

If you’re interested in the members’ only perks, including monthly gifts, premier costumes, and exclusive access to upcoming releases, join in on the fun and become a Very Important Poptopican (VIP)!

Poptropica Creators’ Blog

The VIP (Very Important Poptropican) title has been used in the past, for a program created by former Pop social media manager Skinny Moon. It was intended to reward fans who were especially dedicated to the game through blogging or art or social media.

Sadly, beyond identifying some members and an exclusive beta preview of Poptropica Worlds (now defunct), the program never really took off (though the PHB is proud to retain its VIP badge in our sidebar). Now, the VIP name seems to have taken on a whole different, capitalistic meaning.

Do any of you Poptropicans plan on submitting creations to the birthday exhibition? And what minigames would you like to see be re-released?

Until next time!

We quest in “dru” time 🧝‍♀️🛩️

Hey, Poptropicans! Time to check out the newest stuff Poptropica has to offer. We have costumes, comics, stories, and even quests. Let’s go!

Last week, Poptropica made an Instagram post featuring a costume that had yet to grace the Pop store. Now, with the latest store update, the Forest Druid costume is available for purchase! This magical costume has a little bit of everything for everyone — if by “everyone” you mean members. 🤑🙃

The end of the store update post added, “Does the latest costume remind you of anything?” As far as I can tell, this costume appears to be based on Devoted Druid from the card game “Magic: The Gathering.” Both have similar cloaks and headpieces, but the Poptropica version has more foliage. Is this the right costume, or is there one more identical?


Next, Part 3 of Muddy Kid’s fan comic The Adventures of Ruby is now up on the Pop Creators’ Blog! Check out the first two parts to catch up on the story. In this month’s issue, Ruby sets off on a quest and earns her first pretend medallion. Click to enlarge the comic panels:


Finally, the Creators shared some new stuff on their latest Instagram stories. The first two stories highlight some great clips of Black Widow as if she were in an Ace Attorney game, and the third story shows a sneak peek of the Dimension Bros’ Poptropica Month video upload schedule.

However, the fourth and final story is the big one, announcing that Amelia’s mini quest is out now!


That’s all for now! What do you think the Forest Druid costume is based on? Any guesses for what the Dimension Bros are planning for Pop Month? Let us know in the comments below!

Stay tuned for our post covering Amelia’s mini quest. Thank you for reading, and have a good day!

Contests, Monthly Costume Contests, Store

Outfitted for adventure and designed for victory 👕⛰️

Hello, you fashion forward Poptropicans! The Creators gave us a short and sweet store update today, so here’s an equally short and sweet PHB post covering it as well as some costume contest news.

Another Monday, another Adventure Outfitters update! All players can dress for first day success with the returning Bookworm Kid and Fashionista Prep, but members can go trailblazing with the all-new High Adventure outfit. Along with the new outfits, don’t forget that you can still purchase Tokyo Olympics gear for a short time. These items will definitely cost a bit of fictional currency, but you can start earning credits by completing islands and many other means.

But wait, there’s more… sort of. A new Instagram post advertising Adventure Outfitters features a new costume not yet seen in Poptropica. This woodland elf costume pictured below definitely gives some Twisted Thicket vibes. We should be able to purchase this costume in the near future, likely sometime next week.


Those are definitely some nice fits, but is there a particular look that you wish to wear in-game? Why not enter the August costume contest? All you need to do is design an outfit or three then submit them through Poptropica’s submissions page. You oughta act fast since the contest ends tonight at 11 p.m. Eastern/ 8 p.m. Pacific. Good luck, designers!

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!
