Gear up for a Christmas in Haxe 🎄

Heyo, Poptropicans! Yet another week has gone by, and that means another store rotation. The holidays have reached Poptropica in this latest store stash!

Many items have remained the same, although there is a good assortment of new apparel as well. Let’s take a look at the newest fashion in stock:

  • Costumes: Glam Gamer Girl*, Comfy Vibes*, Boss Babe, Neon Rockstar, Pretty Tough, Aqua Rebel, Boho Beauty, Coolin, Cozy Coca, Elf Costume*, Little Candy Cane*, Crazy Candy Cane*, Pop Star, Angel, Robin Hood, Holiday Ball
  • Followers: Dolphin*, Mini Dr. Hare*, Chick, Atlantis Drone, Dryad, Charlie the Choco-Monkey*, Elephant, Deer
  • Powers: Binary Rain*, Bobblehead*, Torch, Cinnamon Fire PopGum, Spark Shower Wand, Electrify
  • Pranks: Sticky Notes, Sneezing Powder, 8-Bit Birthday Pixel Pig Power, Inside-Out Power*, Octo-Prank, Jellyfish Prank, Spitball Shooter

11 items out of the entire store are members-only, with 5 member-exclusive costumes.

Most of the Christmas costumes are for members only, but there’s nothing wrong with sporting a glam pop star look instead! After all, the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear. 🎶

Going caroling on Home Island.

Apart from the store festivities, here’s a little reminder of the little time we have left with Flash came very recently. PHB staffers Gentle Dolphin, Sporty Boa, and Spotted Dragon reported logging onto Poptropica on their Flash accounts and finding themselves in Haxe instead. I logged on and didn’t experience the same issue, as I was still in Flash. Perhaps it has something to do with logging in on the mobile app before I logged in on a computer? Who knows?

The good news, however, is that whether you show up on Haxe or Flash, the old islands (for members only) will still be available until the end of the year! (And will hopefully be open for non-members too in the future.) Make the most of Flash before it’s gone for good!

Maybe the good old classics will be in Haxe one day…

A final tidbit of news is that the Creators, true to their promise, recently shared a second Video of the Week! This one has been dug up from the archives of 2016, and highlights Pop founder Jeff Kinney showing how to draw a Poptropican on Fox & Friends. (Check out the clip in their post.)

That’s the scoop for today! Has your account been mysteriously converted to Haxe? And whichever format you’re in, is your Poptropican avatar dressed for the winter holidays? Tell us in the comments, and I’ll see you soon!

Arabian Nights and YouTube Spotlights 🧞‍♂️

Heyo, Poptropicans! Big news: the Creators recently announced that Arabian Nights will be coming to Haxe in less than a week! And, unlike many islands before it, it’ll be available to all players—non-members included—right from the release! Pretty awesome, huh?

Arabian Nights was one of the most popular islands.

It’s not clear yet whether the Creators plan to remaster Arabian Nights (like they did with Mythology Island) or if they’re keeping it relatively the same as the Flash version. Most players, myself included, weren’t very happy with the lack of challenge in Haxe’s Mythology; but who knows what’ll happen with Arabian Nights? A new island port is progress in itself, and the most we can do is hope that the new version turns out as awesome as the original Arabian Nights!

Speaking of Arabian Nights, this fun island trilogy was the winner of the 2013/14 Create Your Dream Island Contest! It’s not a coincidence that the Creators decided to release Arabian Nights at this time, to commemorate the current Dream Island contest happening right now. (There’s still plenty of time left to submit your island entries!)

Arabian Nights (as seen on the mobile app)

In other news, a second Creators’ Blog post appeared not long after the Arabian Nights announcement, this one sharing a Halloween Poptropica fan video by Invisible Ring (inspired by the Zomberry Hero special event)! Though the post is quite late for Halloween, it’s never too late to be zombified. 🧟‍♀️ Check out the spooktacular video below:

There’s something in the title of the Creators’ post that caught my eye: “Video of the Week.” Hmm… is this another weekly promise? The store rotations that were planned to change every week don’t always live up to the promise, but it would be pretty great for the Creators to recognize their (very creative) fans with weekly videos. Between their showcasing of fan art in place of ads, social media spotlights, and now fan video features, the Creators have definitely been giving the Poptropica fandom lots of recognition lately!

Welp, that’s all for this one! What are your hopes for the new Arabian Nights? Thoughts on the Creators’ fan interactions? Let us know in the comments!

More fantastic features & captivating content 🖌️📽️🎁

Hello friends, hope you’re having an awesome day! I know for a fact that Poptropica sure has been having an awesome month, full of elating events, colorful creations, and of course, beautiful beevs.

Speaking of which, last week the Pop Creators posted FOUR new Instagram story features! Two of these amazing pieces feature our favorite fuzzy doctor, and another was even created by the PHB’s very own Gentle Dolphin.

We love seeing the creators recognizing the fans and community. Which reminds me, 10,000 credits are still on the table as the Dr. Beev drawing challenge ends tomorrow! You can submit your Beev fanart by using the tag #drbeev, where you can also peep some of the submitted works.


The month of September has brought us some great new Poptropica content in the artistic realm. To keep the good times rolling, a new wave of videos have been published from fans! Me and fellow PHB author, Gentle Dolphin, have also been swept along for the ride as we couldn’t help but join in on the fun. Check out our Pop Month videos below:

Though it is a bit sad knowing Pop Month is coming to an end, we gotta give a big thanks to Theo and Isaac of Dimension Bros as well as all of the wonderful junior creators and fans who have helped make this truly a month to remember!

Let us know what you enjoyed most about Poptropica Month! Whether it was the art, videos, Beev Day, or just overall activity, we’d love to hear from you guys in the comments. As always, stay safe and stay awesome!

A commencement address to Poptropicans of 2020

This post is going to be a bit different from our usual news updates and fandom spotlights, but we want to take a moment to toast and encourage you, Poptropicans of unprecedented and tumultuous times. Here’s to you!

To the Poptropicans of 2020,

It’s been a strange year. We’re living in a global pandemic, yes, but that hasn’t stopped us from playing Poptropica. That threat lies elsewhere, in the impending end for Adobe Flash. But more on that later.

In some parts of the world, now’s about that time of the year when students graduate and have ceremonies to celebrate the occasion—gatherings which now, of course, may not happen in person, or at least will look different than usual. So if you’re graduating this year (whether from elementary, middle, high school or college): congratulations! 👩‍🎓 And even if it’s not your turn yet, what follows is still for you too.

Here at the Poptropica Help Blog, we want to commemorate with you with a commencement speech of sorts, to remind you of the times we’ve had, to give you hope, and to send each other into the world to come. So we’ve donned our caps and gowns (from the Graduation costume available now in the store!) and prepared a celebration for you. Let’s roll.

Some of you have discovered this game only recently, and others of you have been around for literally a decade. Either way, we’re all part of the Poptropica fam, and that’s worth celebrating! 🙌

As Poptropicans, we’ve ridden on gryphons, been chased by blueberry-infected zombies, trolled some lumberjerks, and had lots more adventures. (And when you were stuck, we were right here with illustrated island guides to help you through. 😉 ) How many of these moments in Poptropica do you remember?

It’s been a good long run, but things are different now. There’s uncertainty. We know that Flash will not be supported by the end of this year, and it’s resulted in drastic changes for Poptropica as they prepare for this future—it’s meant islands disappearing and cosmetic and structural changes to the game. A fresh, challenging, solid island adventure seems a long way away.

And offline, there’s uncertainty too. Plans have changed, and perhaps you’re not sure what the next year or even the next few months might look like. But it’s okay not to know. What you can hope in is this: the world needs you, noble Poptropican.

Remember your adventures in Poptropica, and all that was gained from them. Love sacrificially, as the Vizier did for you in Arabian Nights. Find joy in wonder, like Salerno with her alien structures in Lunar Colony. Live patiently, as with your grind for the Phoenix Warbird in Skullduggery. Even when these islands fade, their legacy remains. So know that the giants you’ve faced, and the friendships you’ve formed, have prepared you to take on the world with courage, kindness, and yes, even greatness.

Have hope, because you’ve come this far. Have faith, because you are surrounded by people who believe in you. And take heart, brave ones, because you’re just getting started.

Life is made up of the everyday moments, and your part matters.

A new world awaits. Poptropicans, may you rise up to meet it.

Popping boredom busters: bird coloring, word searching

Greetings, Poptropicans! It’s Lucky Joker here.

Have you found yourself overwhelmingly bored in quarantine just needing something to keep yourself occupied? Try these fun little activities — all thanks to the good folks from the Poptropica Creators’ Blog.

First, they’ve shared three downloadable/printable coloring sheets waiting to be brought to life of various scenes and characters:

There’s an ostrich-riding scene from Reality TV: Wild Safari, the infamous Dr. Hare from 24 Carrot, and an extended version of Poptropolis Games Island. I may do one of these myself and add it into this post later on. 😛


In addition to the coloring pages, we have a delightful word search game to complete, and it’s also downloadable for printing. Word searches are definitely one of my favorite pastimes. I’ve actually been doing a lot of them lately, so this’ll be great. Thanks Poptropica!

(Click here for the answers!)

It’s certainly nice of the Poptropica Creators to be doing what they can to cure (or at least lessen) the dullness of this time we’re in.

If you’re in search of any more Poptropica pursuits to engage in, feel free to reference our 101 boredom-busting list, participate in this month’s Community Creations, or consider writing up a guest post — we’d love to have you!
