Shrink Ray Island Guide


A young genius has invented a ray gun that shrinks anything it touches – including you! But when the scientist and her invention go missing, you’ll have to keep the shrink ray from falling into the wrong hands, and find a way to bring yourself back to normal size. To solve a problem this big, you’ve got to think small!

When you arrive on Shrink Ray Island, go directly to the school and into the room where the science fair is taking place. All the other science fair displays are up, save for one: turns out, the star student, CJ, is missing! Talk to CJ’s father next to the empty stand on the right and ask how you can help. He’ll tell you to go check in on their apartment in Avenue A.


CJ’s Apartment

Now head down right to Avenue A. Go to the house at the far end. A cat will get in the house, and you will have to shoo it out! Chase the cat around the house, until it enters the bathroom. When you come out of the bathroom, the cat will have mysteriously disappeared, but his paw can still be felt if you pass by the front door – so every time you do pass that door later on, be sure to jump!

To solve a problem this big, we have to think small…

Now we’ll have to check the house for clues on CJ’s disappearance. Go to CJ’s bedroom to the left and click on the microscope, where CJ has left you a note saying that her invention has been stolen and you will need to think small to find it.


And then a man will come with a gun and shoot you. You will be shrunk down to miniature size!

Now, travel through the house to the kitchen on the right. Along the way you will see drawers, pieces of fuzz, books, and all sorts of big things (but that’s because you’re tiny now).


Inside the kitchen, your goal is to reach a scrap of paper with clues sitting unreachably on the table at the far right. First, enter the right area of the kitchen (there are two parts; left and right).

Push the brown rolling pin towards the kettle, and the kettle will start steaming. The steam of the kettle should push you onto the top right shelf, containing flour, sugar, and oil. Tip the can of oil over, and it will drip oil down to the ground.


Jump down to where the cat food bowl is, and push it to a spot where it’ll be directly in the path of the bag of cat food above. Next, hop over to the bag of cat food and click on it to drop the food into the bowl.

When the cat food bowl is full, move it towards the bottom of the table, get on top of the food bowl, and jump! You should land on the farthest right table and pick up the Piece of Paper. Move the cat food bowl again, this time placing it under the grapes on the table, and jump again to grab a grape – which you will now be carrying.


Now go back to the left side of the kitchen. Jump up to the open drawers and pick up the Screwdriver. Next, take the toaster’s cord and plug it into the outlet. Carrying the grape, you’ll now have enough weight to jump onto the toaster switch – wait a moment as the toaster gets heated, and you’ll be flung up to the shelf above.


Push the salt shaker on the shelf to the far left end until it rests on the bottom of the spatula. Next, jump on the other side of the spatula, and it will fling you to the top of the fridge, where you can grab the Remote Control!

Dumpster Diving: Into the Trash Can

Jump back down to the kitchen floor and up the drawers to where the sink is, then click down to enter the trash can below. Inside, it’s a bit of a mess, as well as a bit of a maze – to get to certain areas, you will have to click on objects to move them. Scroll down below for help with this maze.


Follow these steps carefully (careful, one false move and you’ll be squished!):

  1. Right at the start, move the can of tuna to the right.
  2. Jump down and move the next piece of cheese to the left, so the column does not collapse on you.
  3. Jump up through the top and keep going! Move the next can of milk to the right and follow it down.
  4. Next, go left and push the cheese left out of the way.
  5. Jump over to where the tuna can is, and push it right so it falls down. This gives you something to stand on.
  6. Stand on the tuna can and pull the next can of tuna out left. As you do so, run right so you don’t get squished!
  7. The column should collapse, allowing you to walk over the top of it to a new area.
  8. Go right, pull out the final can of tuna to the left, jump on it, and jump up to grab the Torn Page.

Once you’ve grabbed that slip of paper, you can allow yourself to get squished to bring you back to the beginning, where you can then exit the trash maze.

Living Room

Head to the living room (left of the kitchen) and use the Screwdriver while standing near the toy truck to unscrew the battery case. Take the Battery and stick that into the TV remote on the table just above the toy truck. Now go to the remote and press the big green button. It should turn the TV on.

Go up to the top of the TV and collect static from the antennas. Once you’ve got static clung to your body, jump over to the green balloon, and the static will allow you to stick onto it as you float over to the pictures on the wall.

Jump onto the picture frame, then jump left to reach the shelf with fish food.

Pour the fish food downwards, and it will fall into the fish tank below to mollify the fish. Turn off the tank’s aqua filter, jump into the tank, and grab the Diary Key in the treasure chest.


CJ’s Bedroom

Now jump down and exit the living room, through to the next room, and reach the diary on the top shelf by jumping up the bookshelf to the plant on top and then to the top shelf to reach it.


Use the Diary Key to unlock CJ’s diary. Inside the diary, you will that one of the pages has been torn out – which matches the Torn Page from the trash can!

Use the Torn Page where you’re standing to reveal this message: “The thief is right out the door! I’ll shrink myself to get the shrink ray and then get him later.”


There will be a simple formula below that: lemon + paper + light. Jump down to where the lamp is on the desk and place the Piece of Paper under the lamp light. Jump on the lamp a few times so the light is shining on the paper completely, and click the switch on the lamp to turn it on.


A message will reveal itself on the page: look for me at the school coordinates.

While you’re in the computer area of CJ’s bedroom, jump up to where the thermostat is and run on it until the setting is pointed at the red spot, heating up the room.

Go to the telescope at the far end of the room and jump onto the X/Y switches. On the X switch, run right on top of it and set it to 87. On the Y switch, set it to 16. The school coordinates are X87, Y16 – this information can be found on CJ’s cork board in the bedroom.

For this part, you’ll also need the Morse Code Key, which you should get from on top of CJ’s bed. You’ll also need the thumb drive from under CJ’s bed. To get that, jump onto the fan so it goes lower so you can reach the switch. Hit the switch, and the fan will turn on and blow away the dust under CJ’s bed. Turn the fan off and grab the Thumb Drive.

Go back to the computer and plug the thumb drive in. The password for the laptop is the name of CJ’s hero, Marie Curie, with numbers in place of certain letters for added security. Type in m4r13 cur13 – with the space – and upload the data on the thumb drive to the laptop.


Now, go back to the right side of the bedroom and tip the trash can over on the way. The rubbish scraps should float up because of the heat coming from the vent, and you will be able to get across. Go back to the telescope and look through it.

From the school, CJ will flash you a message with her flashlight. A morse code translation mini-game will occur, but if you don’t want to analyze the codes she’s flashing, just wait for her to flash each letter and then select the right one, spelling out the message: flush the thumb drive. She wants you to flush it… literally.

Bathroom Break

Now, head left, all the way until you reach the half-open bathroom door (you can see the green tiled walls beyond) and enter. Jump up the half-open drawers to get onto the countertop, run past the sink, and keep going until you reach two switches. Jump down on the switch to the right to turn off the ventilation fan.

By the way, if you do stop by the sink and turn on the hot water faucet, you can let the mirror steam up, revealing hints for CJ’s password. But we already told you that (above).


Anyway, run over to the hair dryer on the rack left of the sink. Jump onto the red switch to make warm air come out. Then, jump on the right of the hair dryer to make it tilt. Now, jump directly in front of the hair dryer. The heat should push you up and into the shower!


Once in the shower area, go to the water dispenser in the bathtub and turn the warm knob. Water will start to fill the tub. You’ll also need to push a soap bar into the tub from a fixture on the wall.

Now, jump onto the bar of soap, then onto the rubber ducky, and finally out of the tub to the left where the toilet is.

Standing on top of the toilet bowl, use the thumb drive to drop it in. Then jump on top of the toiler paper and click on the flush handle. As soon as you flush, a voice will come from the living room calling, “Drat, where did she hide that darned thumb drive?”

Never too young to be driving a toy car!

Go back to the bedroom and head for the telescope, making sure the dials are set to the school coordinates: X87, Y16. CJ will flash you another message: Thief is Mr. Silva.


You will see a dark figure pass through the science classroom where CJ is flashing you the message! You have to get back to the school to save her.

Now, get back to the toy car in the living room. Take the battery out of the TV remote and put it back into the toy truck so you can power it. Hop into the toy car and drive it all the way to the bedroom, until you see a stack of books blocking the way. Climb up to the bookshelf and push the book titled Tess’ Tree down. That will act as a ramp for you to ride over!

shrink ray car ramp

Then, a short cutscene will play – you’ll jump across the ramp and break straight through the window. Like a boss!

Now it’s time for another mini-game. Keep driving the car through the streets, but as it goes, watch for things that you should avoid like sewer drains, leaky fire hydrants, and shoes – but do hit the ramps for an extra boost! Eventually, you’ll make it to the public school, PS101.

Shrinking Silva

Inside the school’s science room, CJ will tell you that while Mr. Silva has always been a great teacher, he’s betrayed her and stolen the shrink ray for himself.


A mini-game will begin. You must run from the evil teacher, Mr. Silva, who’s holding the shrink ray and threatening to make you and CJ even smaller! For the final showdown, hide behind any object that will cover you, so that when the shrink ray is pointed at you, it will shrink the objects instead.

While hiding whenever the shrink ray draws near, make your way to the far end of the room and climb up the shelf. Then, jump up to the table and run right, hiding behind the earth globe. When the shrink ray hits the globe, instead of disappearing like the other objects you hid behind earlier, the globe will simply get smaller. Push the globe to the chair in the middle of the room, and jump on it to reach the chair.

Climb up from the chair to the table, then hide behind the lunch box for cover. Once Mr. Silva’s ray shrinks that, quickly dash right and hide behind the mirror. Your next move will be the winning move! Wait for the ray to fire again, and… this time, because it hits the mirror, the laser will bounce back and shrink Mr. Silva instead! He’ll land inside a nearby ant colony container – tiny as can be.

Now, go down and flip the switch on the shrink ray device to “grow”, bringing you and CJ back to normal size. She will award you the Island Medallion and credits to spend at the Poptropica Store. As for CJ’s science project, it’s a prize-winning display starring Mr. Silva as “The Incredible Shrunken Man”!

    hey dudes! Theres an awesome glitch i found out!
    Wear the shrink ray gun from the despicible me ad, and it will look like the shrikray island shrink ray 😀
    CREDIT TO THIRSTY LIZARD ( ME ) for the glitch!!!

  2. SuperThunder says:

    Great guide, Elmo! Remember when I told you to just relax and finish it when someone else wrote it on the PHC? Well, I was wrong. It’s too bad I wasn’t patient. I could have finished it this morning with your guide, but I have a thing where I MUST finish the island the day it comes out. 🙂

  3. Shaggy Peanut says:

    I love that shrink ray glitch! It may of been put there on purpose…if it was just a glitch, I saved it onto my magic mirrors anyway, so it dosn’t matter.

    • cphelpbymintycocoa4 says:

      The fan part isn’t to far from the beginning. Just use an island restart! Plus, I do island restart and set up a timer to see if I can finish it REALLY fast! So click on the map, and click the button on the bottom left. It will ask you if you would like to restart. And next time, here’s a tip, BE CAREFUL. Haha. I hope this helped you popropicans!

      • Roziela says:

        actualy if you do this it will work

        go to the temperature change thing on top of her computer and then turn it to the red,hot part…then go back to the room!!!!

    • jjrox4life says:

      you have to turn the thermometer to red (its over the computer) then you push the trash can over so its on top of the heat vent and the trash will float up. then you jump on the trash to get to the bed

      hope i helped:)

      • muddy eagle says:

        Go to the hair dryer and click on the blue and red buttons then jump onto the air currents. If you’re reading this two years after it was posted, I hope maybe we can friend each other? Please;0

  4. kittykatswell001 says:

    Blue Paw, to get the grape, you need to click on it. You can’t always depend on running into it to move it; you must click on it, then your Poptropican will pick it up. You can carry it around from there.

    • jjrox4life says:

      you jump on the cat bowl when its filled and you jump on the table. then you click the grape. then go to the toaster and plug it in. then pick up the grape again and jump on the thing to push it down. wait and it will fling you up. then push the salt onto the spatula handle and jump onto the other side. it will fling you up and you have to put your mouse toward the might take a few tries

  5. cphelpbymintycocoa4 says:

    The correct password for the laptop is m4r13cur13. You forgot about the I. I used the guide (slightly, to feel a sense of accomplishment) for the password, and I thought I did something wrong on it. Fix it soon please, so that other kids won’t have the same problem I did using it.

    – Another blogwriter

    Hijuyo: Thanks for pointing it out.

  6. lili says:

    I Can’t Do The Jump On Da Green Balloon Thingy :/

    Hijuyo: Hang onto the TV antannae to collect static on your body, then jump and reach for the green balloon, which will set you adrift.

    • Prickly Dolphin says:

      Currently, there is not another way. Just keep trying or watch a video. (my opinion is shrink ray island is great island)

    • Not telling anyone says:

      I think I can get into thew fish tank, sink down, hit a fish that will boost me up, then jump to the right a little and land on the shelf. Wish me luck!!!!!

    • k3000 says:

      I had the same problem too! Then I figured out that you are supposed to jump to the balloon from the top of the TV, not the antenna.

    • braybray says:

      get the screwdriver from the drower in the kitchentchen then go unscrew the truck put it in the remote then jump on the green butten go 2 the top of the tv on the antennas then get off the antennas but on the top of the tv and jump 2 the green balloon go on the frame 2 the ledge and dump the fishy food 2 the left then jump 2 the tank and so on.

  7. DizzyDee says:

    If anyone needs help with the “Escape The Evil Science Teacher” game, here’s a tip. When you’re running towards to shelf, don’t hide behind the grape soda. Hide behind something else. It’ll come in handy when rolling the globe.

    • Xara says:

      you have to get the grape from near the fruit bowl (next to the note of clue witch is supposed to smell like lemon juice) then take the end of the black cord (behind the toaster) and plug it in. Then take the grape and then jump on top of the handle. This will heat the toaster and you will be flinged to a shelf. Go back down, pick up the grape and repeat what you did )jumping on top of the handle thingy) untill it flings you on top of the fridge =D

    • Austin Dane Hull says:

      How to do the toaster part: Bring Whisker’s food bowl exactly to where the cat food will fall. Fill it all the way up, and bring it below the table and-hop! you’re on the table.(It started glitching when i was filling up the bowl, so be prepared) you’re on the table.

      THE TABLE:

      Get the piece of paper that you’re poptropican wanted on the table. It smells like lemon juice (the lemons are cut up) and get the grape. Then get off the table. Hope this last one helps, because i really wanted to help. So please don’t say i’m a wimp…


      Hop to the toaster and let go of the grape. Then it will make the toaster thing go down…down… and-HOP! you go. But wait-i’m gonna help you ALL complete the island, so since you see more steps, do them. You’ll never know if you complete the island…


      Basically put the salt on the end of the spatula and as you jump on the front, the salt will jump-it’s basically like a seesaw. The salt lands and you jump-even further, since you’re small. That is how you get…


      Put the salt on the spatula. Hop on the the front. After the salt hops you hop. KNOW HOW FAR YOU GO: Hop from the spoon-holder(Above the spatula) and you hop not that far. Sorry. It’s happened with me too. But i hopped in 24 carrot island, reality TV island and Night Watch island(I liked the mall). Anyway, when you finally get on top of the fridge, just get it by clicking it. Yayy!


      Follow these steps carefully (careful, one false move and you’ll be squished!):
      Right at the start, move the can of tuna to the right.
      Jump down and move the next piece of cheese to the left, so the column does not collapse on you.
      Jump up through the top and keep going! Move the next can of milk to the right and follow it down.
      Next, go left and push the cheese left out of the way.
      Jump over to where the tuna can is, and push it right so it falls down. This gives you something to stand on.
      Stand on the tuna can and pull the next can of tuna out left. As you do so, run right so you don’t get squished!
      The column should collapse, allowing you to walk over the top of it to a new area.
      Go right, pull out the final can of tuna to the left, jump on it, and jump up to grab the Torn Page.

      Once again, on wrong move and you get squished! 🙂


      Head to the living room. use the Screwdriver while standing near the toy truck to unscrew the battery case. Take the Battery and stick that into the TV remote on the table just above the toy truck. Now go to the remote and press the big green button. It should turn the TV on.
      Go up to the top of the TV and collect static from the antennas. Once you’ve got static clung to your body, jump over to the green balloon, and the static will allow you to stick onto it as you float over to the pictures on the wall.

      I just wanna say that this was awesome to write, but my finger is hurting 😦

    How do i get to the other side of the fan when i flush the thumb drive? D: I cant pass the fan cuz its lowered

    • Golden Typhoon says:

      Go back to the computer room, and turn the thermostat all the way to the red part. Then go back to the bedroom, tip over the trash can and jump on the scraps of paper. They should rise up high enough for you to jump on the bed.

  9. says:

    yea this is one of my fave islands. p.s. the guide by the toilet talks about making a good password, that might help

  10. Rory dosen't care if WordPress chose not to log him in automaticly today. says:

    I’m on the bit where you hide from Mr. Silva. I know what to do, but I just can’t do it. 😦 It’s like it’s timed!

  11. izzati says:

    how to flush the thumbdrive??? i use it and it says “i should back up this data before destroying it!” help!!!!!!

    Hijuyo: You need to ‘back up the data’ by going to the computer and entering the password (m4r13cur13), then use the thumb drive there to upload the contents to the laptop.

  12. Yellow Fox says:

    Hi, I just finished the island, beat Mr.Silva, and grew back to normal size. However, I didn’t get the medallion or the 100 credits. In addition, it doesn’t show the island as completed! What do I do?

  13. Hicoga says:

    when I tried plugging in the thumbdrive my character just jumped on the key boards. what shall I do? I tried and tried and tried but it just didn’t work.please help me!

    Hijuyo: You need to type in the password using your actual keyboard. [Spoiler alert: the password is m4r13cur13]

  14. Erickaster says:

    I’m trying to flush the thumbdrive, but when I click “Use” to drop it in, I keep saying “I should probably back up data before destroying it!” HELP!!

  15. Erickaster says:

    I’m TRYING to push the globe to the chair, but it’s moving SOOOO slow!! I got shrunk. WHA!! How will it go faster?

    Hijuyo: You don’t have to push it that far. As soon as you see it nearing the chair enough to be able help you jump to it, hop on the globe and then up the chair and move quickly.

  16. I am So Bored I Am So Bored I Am So Bored I am So Bored I Am So Bored!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 says:

    fun island:)

  17. sam says:

    I’m stuck. I flushed the thumb drive without reading the lemon juice letter and now I can’t get the message saying that Mr.Silva is the thief!

    Do I have to restart the island?

  18. Llama Lover says:

    Hey, just a tip, when you’re trying to get on the fridge to get the car remote, it’s a LOT easier when you just go to the shelve above the toaster, and then if you move the salt shaker to the left of the spatula, then go on the right and jump, it will propel you to the top of the fridge. i just found this was a lot more efficient, so yeah.

  19. Magic Moon says:

    this is a cool cheat i just figured out! 😀 swim in the fishtank when the fish are eating and then turn the filter on. you’ll be walking on the bottom!!!

  20. strangecrumb says:

    Yah, Llamalover is right. I think you’re SUPPOSED to use the spatula as a catapult. I did that cuz I used the guide on Super Thunders blog.

    But to be fair, BT forgot to mention that you ride on the trash. Wait you did too. Ah well, thats why I love ya. 😀

  21. Magic Moon says:

    on the computer the sticky note isn’t her password, its telling you that her password is her hero, Marie Curie which I found out by looking on the giant poster by knocking over the trash can and jumping on the trash. on the poster, there was a sticky note very much like the one on her computer that said “my hero” on it. the real password as we all know is m4r13cur13 which has her name in it! M. Cur. <:D

      • Alex (Icy Catfish) says:

        And the bathroom holds two more clues: a magazine article by the toilet that talks about making passwords be the names of people you admire, but changing some letters into numbers to make it harder to guess.
        And the other clue is a message hidden on the mirror which only appears if it gets fogged up( turn on hot water for steam, turn off the second switch so the fan doesn’t remove it), which says:
        A=4 E=3 I=1

  22. Alex (Icy Catfish) says:

    I’m disappointed that we never get to look at anything else through the telescope even if you can make out the obscured coordinates. Fun island, though.

  23. Erickaster says:

    While you were hiding when Mr. Silva tries to shrink you, you hid behind the first pile of books, and it is titled “RUN”. Ironic?

  24. White Ring says:

    Why did my character say ‘I need to back up this data before destroying it!’ when I tried to flush the thumbdrive down? Now I’m stuck in the bathroom.

    Hijuyo: You need to get out of the bathroom and go over to the computer to upload the data from the thumb drive onto it. There is more information in the guide; please use it.

    • Not telling anyone says:

      I had the same problum. What you do is climb the anatana, then climb down it. Next you move jump up northwest with your arrow thingy, and then you are on! 🙂

  25. anastasia says:

    you get the screw driver unscrew the battery of the car and put the battery in the tv romote then press the green button and go the tv and the antena will have little white lines so you jump on those then jump toward the balloon

  26. Prickly Dolphin says:

    Its been a long time since I wrote on this guide full of comments. When I said Lazy Fish was my friend, I meant was I am her. Sorry about that. Any ways, I like Cj’s clothes. I can costumize her blue thingy. I completed the island in 45 seconds. I never loss on the escape from the shrink gun game on the island. This island is so easy!

  27. Not telling anyone says:

    I cant jump on the green balloon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE TELL ME THAT THERE IS ANOTHER WAY TO GET ON!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you, or tell me how to exactly.

    • Prickly Dolphin says:

      Go get the screwdriver, then use it on the truck. Get the battery. Next, jump on the table and click use on the battery and it will get inserted the romote. Then jump on the green button on the remote. Then the TV will turn on. Then jump to the top of the TV. Climb on the atenia or watever you spill it (the thing hat is sparkling). Jump on that and climb that up. Then climb down. Then jump onto the green balloon to the pictures. Hoped I helped!

      • Prickly Dolphin says:

        Go on top of the TV. Get yourself fuzzy. Then climb down. Then jump high and jump to the green balloon and then you land on a picture. Hoped I helped!

      • Not telling anyone says:

        Yeah! I did it because of Prikly Dolphin! Thank you! You see what I was doning was going to teh very top of the antana and trying to jump! Thank you so so so so much!

  28. Prickly Dolphin says:

    I had the same problem too. What you do is you click the refresh button and click cancel. Then jump around so many times. Then click on the door. That is how you do that. Hoped I really helped!

    • analol123 says:

      At the bottom of the fish tank. You have to feed the fish food to the fish by turning the tv on, climbing on the antenna to get yourself all static, jump on the green balloon from the edge of the tv, and ride the balloon to the picture frame and jump to the shelf with the fish food and push against the fish food a few times to feed the fish and go in the fish tank and get the key at the bottom of it

  29. Patty says:

    HELP!!! My fan won’t work (like the vent with the papers) no matter how many times I try, I can’t get to the telescope!! I’ve turned the vent on and off like 1,000 times, anyone no how to fix it?

    • wolfbrotheryeahh says:

      I had this too, until I figured out you’re meant to jump on the little pieces of floating paper. 🙂

  30. Joe says:

    k this game is really fun but seriously i don’t want to know the whole story on how this works i just want to know what i need ok got that good you know this page is useless and know one wants to read this long on such a boring page like at least make it exciting like come on dothanks alot

    • Yellow Comet says:

      Look, the staff of the PHB try their hardest to make these guides for you. If you aren’t happy, you don’t need to insult them. I love reading through these guides and I’ve been getting my Poptropica Walkthroughs from the PHB since the day Skullduggery Island came out for non-members. (Incidentally, the day I joined Poptropica.) So, as my teacher says: “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” There’s no need to verbally assault Slanted Fish and the other people who make the PHB what it is.

  31. Dangerous Fire says:

    OMG! how do you get to the fish food! help!!!!!!!! i tried jumping on the pictures, but i can’t get to the… wait… AHA!

  32. ineedhelpnoww!!please help please!! says:

    i did everything i needed to (even thought it was in weird order) and now it looks like i never like fed the fish but the diary is still open and i allready read it and read the lemon paper and flushed the jump drive!! also becuase the tv isnt on and i never turned it off even though i fed the fish!! now i cant get the message that mr. silva is the stealer! help pleaassee!

  33. PeetaMellark says:

    Okay so I did everything i needed to do, but somehow i lost the remot to the car so I cant drive the car ot the window!!! HELP ME PLEASEEE!

  34. catnipeverdeen says:

    I can’t get past the part were you have to run from the shrink ray and are you supposed to jump over the chair because I keep tryng but I can’t.

  35. Speedy Tiger says:

    Grrr where do u get the battery u didn’t tell us I cant get it done! 😡

    Slanted Fish: It IS in the guide. Ctrl+F and search the word “battery.” It’s in the toy truck on the living room floor. Use the screwdriver to unscrew the battery case.

  36. BoredSushi says:

    Oh my frickin gosh! Everytime I try to flush the thumb drive in the toilet, it keeps telling me, “I should back up this data before destroying it!”. What does that even mean?!

    • Slanted Fish says:

      It means you need to back up the data by going to CJ’s laptop and uploading the contents of the thumb drive. There is more information in the guide, please read it. 🙂

    • Slanted Fish says:

      Depends on where you are in the quest. If you’re in CJ’s apartment, there’s a little blimp in CJ’s bedroom that acts as the regular blimp. If you’re done with the island or haven’t gotten to the apartment yet, the blimp is on Main Street by the swingset.

      • daddysgirl says:

        Thanks. Now i need help with another part……sorry:) But, i used the blow dryer to get on top of the shower curtain and i fell down into the bathtub. I can’t get out of there, and i keep turning the water on, and it dosen’t fill to the top so i can get out, and so i am kind of stuck there. I tried EVERYTHING.

  37. daddysgirl says:

    Thanks. i didnt use that, but i have a little way if i don’t want to get through all the hard stuff all over again, i just click on home, then click on go to supervillian island. Ta-da!

  38. Skye says:

    At the part with the toaster and the grape, I can’t jump onto the toaster! Maybe there’s something I’m not doing right…? HELP!

  39. Perfect Sky says:

    in first when i was at the flushing part my poptropican said i should get the data out first before destroying it i was confused so i look at this guide and it help thanks so much!!!!

  40. Ian says:

    I cant see the shadow of Mr. Silva? Can anyone tell me what i did wrong?

    Slanted Fish: Why do you need to see his shadow? Which part are you referring to?

  41. Haniya says:

    um…..i accidentally left the grape on the shelf above the toaster and fell down….. now i dont know how to get back on top…. somebody please help me…..

    • Comical Turtle says:

      Click on the map in the top right-hand corner of the screen, then in the bottom left-hand corner of the map screen is the restart button. Hope that helps! 😉

  42. Gracie says:

    When I try to put the battery back into the truck , its telling me that I might be able to use it somewhere else first ? I don’t know where else to use it ? Help ?

    Slanted Fish: Use the battery with the TV remote’s battery on the table and turn the TV on. 🙂

  43. says:

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got
    to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
    it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  44. the magic snowball (from poptropica) says:

    i got the shrink ray gun from store, and i shrunk the man who shrunk me! i like shrinking everyone on poptropica.

  45. the magic snowball (from poptropica) says:

    easy way to jump to the ballon : collect static, jump of the antenna and jump on the green ballon Easy!

  46. purple socks says:

    I accidently dropped the grape at the cereal box, like all the way at the end of the table, and now it won’t let me pick it up again D:

  47. ZamiceShadowLord says:

    I’m stuck from trying to get from the TV to the green balloon, I can reach the red but u can’t get off it yourself. I need help -_-

  48. Keishya says:

    yay thanks to this help blog i completed my third island Shrink Ray Island, it was soo awesome to see my character be shrunken down

  49. rapidashrocks524 says:

    I accidently got on the other side of the fan while it was going, so I couldn’t get to the other side or raise the fan. Even after I went to a new area, it was still low, so i had to restart 😦

  50. smexymermaid says:

    when I get to CJ’s room, it won’t let me click on the microscope? Is there somewhere in particular you have to click?

    • coolpaw99 says:

      Happened with me too. First collect the static. Then slip down for antenna then jump to stick to the balloon.

  51. coolpaw99 says:

    I just hate it when I don’t know why but when I need to flush the thumb drive my character says, I should back up this data before destroying it! I hate it!

  52. Princess Katia says:

    Help! when I put the paper under the lamp, and I jumped enough, nothing showed up! I made sure that I did everything else, and I did everything but nothing is showing.

  53. laura says:

    You forgot about loading the thumb drive onto the computer. But everything else, GOOD JOB AND THANK YOU!!!!!!!:)

  54. emily says:

    grrr i followed all the rules on this thing and i cant get past the globe poptropican is to slow to push it then i tryed to do it a couple times.then i just started running for my tiny little life.then i left the island.think noodles is does he do it?

  55. xxPopgirlxx says:

    Everytime I go on top of the spatula and get the salt on it, when i jump, it doesnt fling me on top of the fridge. why is this?

  56. #tocoolforyou says:

    thanks for this website it is awesome! seriously who do they even expect us to do some of the stuff? i mean who here would think of the quordinates 87 and 16? like what even?????

  57. random poptropican says:

    Hey I need help In the trash can I got stuck I don’t know if it saved the game but I will check
    Thanks poptropica help

    • random poptropican says:

      Ok I restarted the trash can part and I have another part messed up The tuna that I pull out so I won’t get squished won’t come out!!! Someone tell me what I’ve got wrong please

      • I'mABookworm says:

        Hey! I got the same problem before too. I don’t really remember what I did, but I’ll tell you, just try to move everything you can and maybe you can find a way out. That’s what I did. I hope this helped. (I don’t think this helped.)

  58. Silver Paw says:

    It seems like after the island was updated the trash can puzzle was changed.I can’t move the tuna can without getting squished x.x.I can’t even click on some things that should be able to move and my character just gets stuck and repeatedly jumps up and down in the same place.It frustrates me. -.- Can somebody tell me how they got the piece of paper (please) if they did? And remember,Nationwide is on your side! 🙂

    Slanted Fish: For some of the tuna cans you pull out, you will need to run away before you get squished.

  59. Sleepy Club says:

    yesterday I was running away and trying not to get even more shrunk by mr silva, but he kept getting me so I went to a different island but today when I went to shrink ray I looked in my backpack, i had all the stuff from when i was small, because i was big now!!!! but i didn’t have the island medallion yet WHAT THE HECK!!!!!!!

  60. junie17125 says:

    The toy truck part with the ramp and crashing through the window like a boss doesn’t show for me. Like, I did everything and I got the toy truck to the room and the yellow ramp doesn’t show and the stack of books were there without the ramp. I don’t know if I’m supposed to restart or something. Is this a glitch or did I do something wrong?

  61. Bony Bite says:

    I can’t see the piece of torn paper when I’m in the trash maze. Do I even need it to finish the island?

    Slanted Fish: Yes, you need the paper, which is to the very right of the trash maze.

    • Liz says:

      The first three steps are right, but after that I did this:
      1. Pull the milk that is next to you over to the left.
      2. Push the cheese all the way over to the right.
      3. Now hop onto the straws to the right of you.
      4. Then hop onto the water bottle to the left, and the
      5. And then onto the straws to the right and above you.
      6. Now push the tuna to the right and jump down after it.
      7. Push the cheese on the left over to the left once more and run quickly out to the right.
      8. Now push the tuna on your right over to the right again and run out of the way (back to the left. then go back up to the higher straw platform and hop up to get the paper from there.

      Hope I helped 🙂

  62. Gh0stiEleven says:

    THe trash can one is flawed. Either they updated this island, or he didn’t do the walkthrough of the maze correctly.

  63. Gabby griffin says:

    Ok so the bathroom part it was to hard because when u jump in front of the hair dryer it just pushes u back

  64. Cheerful club says:

    When i was in the toy car trying to go in the ramp it said i will have a good reason to do something crazy like that

  65. Amy Hope says:

    i cam not get on to the top picture frame from the balloon for the life of me, can someone help make it sound easier please

  66. Silver Fang says:

    when i try and place the paper under the lamp my character says: ‘i’m not sure what to do with the paper’. what do i do?

  67. Silver Fire says:

    I did Shrink Ray Island again, but this time I have to do almost everything twice to complete it once. At first I thought it was just me being forgetful, but then I went to the toilet to flush the thumb drive and I didn’t have the drive! I know I got it but– POOF! — it’s gone! So I went to get it again, brought it to the toilet, used it, but then it said I should download the contents onto the laptop first. I ALREADY DID! It did this with 9/12 of the stuff before that. PLEASE, please, please, please, PLEASE fix this!

  68. Peyton says:

    May someone help me please drop the thumb drive in the toilet? It won’t let me do it. It always says, ”This is not the right place to use a thumb drive.”

  69. Peyton says:

    Try quickly jumping on the pictures. And flying down gives you more room to jump on the picture without bumping into anything.

  70. Peyton says:

    Poptropica Help Blog, I read your whole guide and it is very helpful. But I am having issues with one thing. When I get to the toilet, and I go to my backpack and click ”Use” on the thumb drive icon, my character always says, ”This is not the best place to use a thumb drive.” What is going on with it? Please tell me the answer ASAP

    • slantedfish says:

      You need to first back up the thumb drive on CJ’s computer, then get the message from CJ through morse code to “flush the thumb drive”. More details are in the guide. 😉

  71. Esther says:

    Nevermind… I got it. Plus, I when I already finished the island, it took me back to the part where I was running from Mr Silva… But I just had to manage it. Please tell me what happened!!!

  72. Mini Minotaur says:

    I can’t get through the garbage can and I feel dumb. I’m stuck at the part when you use the tuna can a a stool. Somebody help please!

  73. Mary says:

    I didn’t use the globe this hilarious and not fair to the rest of u guys but I died then saved my game and left poptropica and came back later then I landed on the table ( without restarting) and ran straight behind the mirror and won

  74. DjLemonz says:

    Can someone please help me with the part where you have to fly out the window with the toy truck, because it says Jumping off this ramp will land me strait through the window! I need a pretty good reason to do something crazy like that.

  75. Bailey says:

    How do I jump from the green balloon to the picture frame? It goes down so fast that I don’t have an opportunity to get to it.

    • Magnolia White says:

      Just jump on the flush thing. Even though I didn’t drop it, the story went on and the thumbdrive was gone from my inventory.

  76. Bobbi says:

    Help guys! When I first enter the trash can, there is a big can of tuna blocking my way to the right, and a piece of wood blocking my way to the left. I tried pushing the can of tuna, but it won’t budge. The piece of wood won’t move either. How do I get out of the fishy-stick trap thingy?

  77. FoxgirlLauren🐺🐺🐺 says:

  80. HAHA says:

    idk why but i have done everything before the telescope part. so i turn the -x and -y thing, but when i looked at it, it just a science room??

  81. Shadow_×.c says:

    I’m trying to put the piece of paper under the lamp and all my character says ” I’m not sure what I should do with the paper ” and it’s getting annoying …

      • Bial says:

        I have the same problem. It keeps saying, “I’m not sure what I should do with the paper.” I’ve already switched on the lamp and jumped down on it as far as it will go.” I refreshed the page, logged in and out but it still didn’t work.

  82. kate says:

    BTW Thanks for making the poptropica cheats! You may call me a cheater but I don’t try to do the island all by myself I just use the cheats cuz I’m too lazy haha. 🙂

  83. Adelle says:

    it won’t let me put the thumb drive in the toilet! How did you guys who won get it in there? HELP! I’ve only got one medallion, and I NEED this one!

  84. Red Hopper says:

    is it just me or does anyone else think that the end where you have to hide from mr silva is hard i just cant go fast enough

  85. Prickly Catfish says:

    What have you about glitches? The green balloon takes me to the floor by the armchair…. goes through the floor, then rises back up…
    Can’t continue.

  86. Prickly Catfish says:

    Well got past the balloon issue, but now theres an issue that definately attributes to game design. Hit the globe and you’re stuck forever.

  87. Calyx Amethyst says:

    Hey, the salt shaker is not getting on the spatula. It keeps really slowly moving to the right. I think that it’s a glitch.

  88. sarahsue001 says:

    I want to say thank you for doing this i mean you have a guide for every single island and you guys put so much time into this, and im so grateful that someone basically is helping strangers, again thank you to the whole poptropicahelp staff for putting all this together.
    It really helps us even though we have problems sometimes its really helpful and great, thank you. 🙂

  89. Molly says:

    I’m stuck on the balloon part. When I get on it from the end of the tv it puts me on the table or the bottom of the picture frame PLEASE HELP ME.

  90. WhimZ says:

    whats the point of the computer? CJ’s hero is Marie Curie. But when i typed that in, it said the name was right, but it wouldn’t log in, then in the bathroom is a newspaper saying how to have an uncrackable password is to have the password be someone you admire and change some of the letters to numbers

    slantedfish: Her password is in this guide – it involves her hero’s name with some numbers mixed in. 😉

  91. persiaRR says:

    how do you get on the picture I can’t do it

  92. Golden Tiger / Add me at meganiscooler says:

    Help me please! I’ve been climbing up and down the antenna for 5 minutes but, I don’t see static around me! For:Slanted Fish

    slantedfish: Try watching a video guide to see what should be happening!

  93. Spunky Mouse says:

    Help!! I accidentally went in the car before I found the note that says me Silvia is the bad guy and I am stuck in the car.

  94. Don't Hug Me I'm Sprocket says:

    One time my sister got stuck on the green balloon. She was just right in the middle of it. We had to log out just to get off of it. It was golden in terms of funny.

  95. Ky says:

    I have tried the ballon to the picture frame tons of times and it hasn’t worked. I go straight to the floor every. Single. Time. What should I do?

  96. Anonymous says:

    I’m not sure if either of these are glitches, but maybe they are (No, i’m not talking about the shrink ray from the despicable me).
    You can remove the battery from the truck while you are inside it. Also, in the trash section, sometimes if I time it just right, I can just go straight through the trash, making the maze easier… Any ideas?

  97. HELP says:

    Im playing on my phone not sure if that’s why but when I jump on the balloon it doesn’t let me jump off until I’m no longer static and it doesn’t even float by the top painting. How do I get the fish food?

  98. help plssss says:

    when i try to flush the thumbdrive my character tells me this is not a good place to use it. I then figured out its cause i was lazy and never did the telescope message things, so i set the coordinates and looked but all i saw was a window of the school, and it still wont let me flush the dang flash drive

    • Slanted Fish says:

      The thumb drive is under CJ’s bed. See the guide above for more details. You can also do Ctrl+F (Command+F on a Mac) on your computer to find key words on any web page like this one, so if you’re looking for something, it’ll highlight it for you.

    • Isabella says:

      I keep coming just short of the fridge. When I try and jump high, I go right through the spatula and land on the ground, and it’s really annoying. Have any ways to fix it? If so, please tell me! I love this island, but I can’t seem to get past this stupid part!

  99. The Golden Fighter says:

    Uh, usually it seems I do these steps out of order but the truck s stuck to the left side of the bathroom for me. Will it reset if I just do the other steps I guess like th truck isn’t needed until the very end and I wish the creators would try and patch a lot of these so we don’t need to try and fix them…

  100. The Golden Fighter says:

    Ok, I don’t think I can progress here unless I ge tthat battery out of the truck which is now stuck on the right side of the bathroom. I mad ethe msitake of using the truck too early before I needed it. Is there any way to fix this glitch and reset it cause I alrady tried reloading the page? Thanks for any help in advance and sorry if I take a while to respond to you all!

  101. chantel says:

    i cant get past the part where you use the salt and the spatula to catapult yourself on the fridge. Ive restarted the island several times to see if i had just glitched the game but it doesnt work for me. As Soon as i jump on the other side of the spatula, my feet are on the shelf as if i just bypassed the spatula and nothing happens. Ive followed the steps very precisely but im going to see if i did glitch and i just need to reset my island again. Could i be doing something wrong?

What's popping, Poptropicans?
