Merchandise: a guide to Poptropica shopping

Are you looking for the perfect Poptropica gift to treat yourself or the Poptropica fan in your life? Over the years, Poptropica has released tons of stuff to go along with the game. This guide to Poptropica’s merch covers it all!


Pop Shop on Zazzle ✨

The official Pop merch store is hosted on Zazzle, which means “they make and ship all the products for [Poptropica].” Costs of items range from US$2.15 for the lowest-priced stickers to $91.90 for Dr. Beev pattern high tops (our beloved Beev has quite a bit of merch here!). And there’s plenty to choose from: clothes, stickers, notebooks, phone cases, and plenty more…

Items are sorted as Apparel and Accessories (hoodies, T-shirts, party glasses, socks, hats, and more), Stickers (blimp, Poptropica logo, and more), and Vintage Distressed Pattern (with a jigsaw puzzle, face mask, and more — also, you might recognize this as the PHB’s background!). Browse the Pop shop »


Toys 🧸

Bring the world of Poptropica to life with various toys! Although Poptropica doesn’t actively make these anymore, you can still find their old toys on sites like Amazon and eBay. Because of their rarity, be prepared for marked up prices!

Poptropica toys used to be sold at Toys R Us and would come with a code that you could redeem for exclusive in-game costumes and powers. The exclusive items can no longer be redeemed, but are noted here for posterity.

Action Figures

Poptropica action figures came in 3-inch and 6-inch sizes, and each purchase came with a code for unlocking the figure’s costume on Poptropica.

Inflatable Blimp

Travel to the edges of Poptropica and beyond with your own inflatable, 30-inch Poptropica blimp. Players who got the Poptropica blimp would have unlocked an exclusive in-game Blimp Adventure (no longer playable).

Plushes

These plushies are soft and huggable little companions ~7 inches in size.

  • Cool Kid – came with (in-game) camera power and handheld Cool Boy plush
  • Shark Boy – came with “Jump the Shark” power (summon the Booga Shark) and handheld Shark Boy plush
  • Dr. Hare – came with Hare Club power (put rabbot ears on everyone) and handheld Dr. Hare plush
From the Poptropica Creators: “Some of our Poptropica merchandise hanging around our office. Now we just need to build a ball pit and fill it with plush toys.”

Pocketeers

Pocketeers are 2″ figurines that are perfect for taking your Poptropica adventures with you anywhere you go. Each Pocketeer came with a code for a mini-Pocketeer follower, but these in-game prizes are no longer redeemable.

  • Dark Astro-Knight Pocketeer
  • Cowardly Lion Pocketeer
  • Hamburger Pocketeer
  • Dr. Hare Pocketeer
Pocketeers — they fit in your pocket, but why would you put them there?

Poptropica Adventures (NDS video game) 🎮

In Poptropica® Adventures (for the Nintendo DS), the Poptropica museum is in ruins and needs your help! Explore three amazing Islands and find missing artifacts to help restore the museum to its former glory and bring along the PHB’s Poptropica Adventures Guide for help.

Goodies gone for good 🚫

Some of the merch Poptropica has peddled in the past is no longer available, but we’ve listed them below to preserve their memory.

  • 😜 Personalized clothing was once available through Ty’s Toy Box. You could enter your username to get T-shirts and hoodies made with your character on them. The clothes came in light blue, royal blue, hot pink, white, gray, and black, as well as various options for background graphics to accompany your Poptropican.
  • 👕 Certain pre-made T-shirt designs (such as a ninja with the text “I’m Awesome,” pictured above) were available in Poptropica’s first run on Zazzle back in 2009–2012. Poptropica returned with new T-shirts on Zazzle in 2020, but the designs are different.
  • 💳 Game cards were once sold for US$10 at major retailers in the US and Canada. Players would scratch off and enter the 10-digit PIN number found on the back of the game card to redeem their choice of 12 weeks of membership or 1,000 credits.
  • 📱 Decorative skins for electronic devices like iPods and laptops were once sold through SkinIt.
  • ❇️ Wall decals with repositionable self-adhesive fabric were once sold through LTLprints (Larger Than Life), with characters like Dr. Hare and Spy Island secret agents as well as accessories like bushes and palm trees.

So, what should I get? 🤔

Everyone has their own individual tastes. If you’re shopping for someone, think of what they’d enjoy most — a nice book to read, fun toy to play with, or a clever tee to wear? Or better yet, a combo of the above?

If you’re looking for a nice gift for yourself, have fun with whatever you pick, but don’t go overboard — especially if you’re spending your parents’ money!

  1. Finally I can find all the Poptropica merch that’s out there! (At least the good kind 😛 ) Maybe my family will now know what to get me.

  2. Lol I’d like to say just one thing and one thing only.. I KNEW IT! So the creator(s) HAVE seen this site! 😀 Anyway, if we can’t get rid of the items we buy from the store (and the rocker girl costume #1 has disappeared btw :o) then I wonder if the issue is if the credits we spent are eturned or not. If so, there should be a ‘costume removal’ (for 250 credits) to rid of things we bought to make room for more or if we no longer have any interest (but instead, no credits are returned after removing it). I don’t know if you can buy credits (like how you can buy membership) but if you can, then the costumes you’ve returned should be converted to credits, then converted to real money, and donated to charity :v good idea?

    If not, I’ll think of other ideas.. .-.

  3. Ahh! What are the sizes? Please don’t tell me they’re all only 6-year-old sizes 😡

    Slanted Fish: Check the website when you’re ordering your custom shirt to see what size fits.

      1. Poptropica wins. Tough Spider, you can get them at Toys R Us and other places, though! 🙂
