Hey Poptropicans, pop in for dinosaurs and doodles!
Home Island has a new ad building for the Netflix show Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, with a chase game that’s a bit of a challenge! Your goal is to run away from a dinosaur, jumping over obstacles until you reach the end — but if you hit three obstacles, you’ll start over.
If you’re successful, you’ll win a Camp Cretaceous Merch cap and Camp Cretaceous Raptor Tooth necklace (which comes with an audible roar, and makes you sweat when you tap the spacebar).
Here’s the latest in Poptropica’s Instagram stories! In addition to bodacious fan art features, the Creators also launched a Pop poll with the help of the Little Miss/Mr meme to ask about device preferences for playing Pop. It’s not the first time they’ve popped this question, but just like before, desktop (at 85%) wins over mobile by a long shot.
Last call for voting in the Poppies! 🏆 Polls are open until this Friday, and we’ll be announcing the winners of our Poptropica fan awards this Sunday at 7pm EST in a spectacular slideshow. See you there! 🥳
Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Dizzy Feather. Enjoy!
Dizzy Feather again, continuing with my theory about the Red Baron and Amelia. (Read part one on why the Baron is not the Queen of Fairytale here!) Anyway, in this post I will be discussing how I believe Amelia is a villain. I know it sounds ridiculous, right? But trust me, it’ll make sense.
Let’s start in Amelia’s clubhouse. Right at the doorway lies my first piece of evidence: the deed to Home Island. Although she says she got it to set up her shop, let’s think about it: who else owns a whole island? I can’t think of one in all of Poptropica, and if you ask me, owning an island sounds like something a villain would love.
On the shelf, we see a tea box with a silhouette of E. Vile, the villain from Legendary Swords. It’s probably nothing, but could it also be a hint of its return? Anyway, let’s get back on track…
In her home, we also see a picture of Amelia holding a trophy, with an angry Baron waving a wrench behind her. Another photo shows Xavier and Amelia flying in the plane we rode on in Monkey Wrench Island.
But look the way Amelia’s looking at Xavier and smiling… is it just me, or does she look nervous, like she just did something she doesn’t want him to know about? I think these two pictures are telling a story: Before we came along, Amelia’s co-pilot was Xavier, and one year during the great race, Amelia threw a wrench in the Baron’s plane, which is why the Baron threw one in Amelia’s later on. If I’m right, could that have been what started their rivalry in the first place?
Now over at the Baron’s cabin, there is a picture of the Baron throwing money from a bank down to a group of Poptropicans. If the Baron was a full-on villain, then why wouldn’t she keep the money for herself? Perhaps the bank was stealing money from the people and the Baron was returning it?
My final piece of evidence is in the Baron’s dialogue. After you complete the Baron’s Crusade, you can ask her three questions. When you ask if it’s just her and Ack, the Baron responds, “Mate, when you’ve been in the game as long as I have, you find trust is hard to come by.” I believe she is referring to Amelia breaking her trust at some point.
The Baron has been labeled the villain in the rivalry, but I believe that is wrong. As it once was said in Mocktropica: “There should be an enemy who’s been hiding in plain sight, but who could it be?”

Hey Poptropicans, this is a guest post by Dizzy Feather. Enjoy!
Hello everyone, Dizzy Feather here with a theory on Amelia and the Red Baron. I’m going to split this into two parts. This is part one, where I’m going to be discussing the theory of the Queen mentioned at the end of Rumpel’s Challenge being the Baron. You might have heard that theory, but I’m not here to prove it right. I don’t blame you if you think it is — I thought so too, until I played Rumpel’s Challenge.
Some comments on that post suggested it was showing that the Baron was part of the royal family of Fairytale Island, and possibly was even the queen herself. Both the king and prince are crying, which makes sense considering they are afraid of the queen. Overall, this photo is a solid piece of evidence supporting the queen = Baron theory… or is it?
Let’s look at the photo closer, specifically the background. We see a silhouette of the queen and some cats with red glowing eyes. The queen seems to have long pointy eyelashes, but the Baron only has a few black lines for eyelashes like most female Poptropicans. Also, why would there be a silhouette of the queen with the Baron at the same time if they were the same character? Seems kinda pointless to me.
Let’s move on to our next piece of evidence: cats. A while back, the Pop Creators shared concept art of a character for Fairytale Island. Here it is:
The third picture of the character looks like the statue and the silhouette of the queen. But look at the first one: she’s holding a bunch of cats. In the background of the Thanksgiving photo, she is surrounded by cats. So the queen seems to like cats. As for the Baron? We have never seen her with a cat… in fact we’ve only seen her with one pet, Ack the monkey.
Still, need more proof? How about this golden statue of the Baron wearing a crown in the royal treasury of Fairytale Island?
Looks just like her, though she’s wearing a crown here. Meanwhile, the queen gets her own large statue in the middle of the treasury that looks totally different. Considering that most characters in Poptropica keep the same outfit, they are probably two distinct characters. Truthfully, I don’t see the Baron being an exception to this. So my thought is, the Baron is related to the queen, but she isn’t the queen herself.
I came to that conclusion after considering what I shared above. You’re welcome to believe otherwise, but I have my mind made up.
Next time, I’ll be sharing my theory on how Amelia is a villain…
First off, from the Home Island quest, where did Xavier’s statue go? Did it stay in the pond in our backyard where we confronted Xavier? I have an answer. In the top right corner of the treasury, Xavier’s statue lies half submerged in gold. Did Rumpelstiltskin steal it from our backyard?
What if Rumpel dressed up as Xavier and stole the statue? And what is up with that big bag “Xavier” was carrying — was it gold? Looks like the treasury had lots of gold. What if Rumpel was stealing more?
Next, why is there a golden pineapple in the lower corner of the treasury? Sure looks like one of the starter items from when you first get your clubhouse. Speaking of which, where do those starter clubhouse items even come from? What if Rumpel stole them from the treasury of Fairytale Island and sold them to the clubhouse dealer for profit?
