Frosty Fashion with your Friendly Following Fox โ„๏ธ๐ŸฆŠ

Hello, you pretty Poptropicans! The Creators just revealed a new winter outfit as well as the last member gift of 2021. Let’s check them out!

Adventure Outfitter’s latest ensemble is the Cool Flake outfit, a curly afro and a cozy hoodie with an icy snowflake graphic. Members can purchase this chill look for 250 credits.

This new outfit is cool and all, but let’s not forget about AO’s new holiday layout. There’s plenty of festive fashion and furniture to get you in the spirit of the season! You can read LJ’s post for more details about these limited-time items.


๐ŸŽถ On the twelfth day of member gifts, the Creators gave to us… one Arctic Fox Follower~ ๐ŸŽถ

Musical reference aside, this last gift is a cute companion any member should like to join them on their virtual adventures. If you want any of this month’s member gifts for yourself, you can purchase a Poptropica membership and log in at any point this December to have them automatically added to your inventory.

We have one new story feature today. Instagram user brittscarlet1 designed an outfit for December’s costume contest: a casual hoodie based on Binary Bard from Astro-Knights Island. It has a similar vibe to the Dr. Hare Fan outfit, which won last month’s costume contest. Imagine fans creating a whole line of casual fashion inspired by Pop’s most iconic villains. I’d pay to see that.

Before I sign off, reminder that the PHB is hosting a Grapple-Pap holiday party on the PHC Discord server this Saturday, December 18th @ 8 pm Eastern / 5 pm Pacific. Come join us for common room games, Discord chats, and holiday shenanigans. We hope to see you there!

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!

Wacky Winning Clubhouses and Frosty Fashionable Gifts ๐Ÿ โ„๏ธ

Hey, everybody! Gentle Dolphin here for another round of Poptropica news!

The Creators just announced the winners of the Goofy Clubhouse Challenge. Without further ado, let’s give a crazy congratulations to Incredible Flame, Lucky Star, and Pink Crush! We have some images of these loony lodgings below, but you can watch the full clubhouse tours on Pop’s Instagram post. ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿ 


Over on the Creators’ Blog, the Creators also confirmed that there will be a Grapple-Pap mini quest available this December! The announcement post is accompanied by an image of a snow-covered house, which was used to tease last year’s Grapple-Gift mini quest. Will this year’s quest be a brand new experience, or will it be the same as last year? We’ll have to wait and see.


The 12 Days of Member Gifts is reaching its end, so let’s highlight some new exclusive winter wear. We know that players received Crystal Couture on Day 8; however, unbeknownst to us, pets also received a matching shawl that day. Day 9 brought on the Cabin Cozy PJs. Members got the Snowy Supreme and Stay Frosty outfits on Day 10, and their pets got a red Winter Outfit on Day 11.


Let’s wrap up this post with a short and sweet edition of Fan Art Features. Pop’s latest batch of Instagram stories spotlights two OCs and a character from the classic S.O.S. Island.

That’s all for now. Any predictions for the upcoming Grapple-Pap mini quest? What do you think of the new member gifts? What will this year’s final member gift be? Share your thoughts in the comments below!

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!

New costumes! New gifts! New… island?!

Howdy Poptropicans, it’s LJ here with some celebratory updates!

In Adventure Outfitters, lots of festive outfits and clubhouse items ornament the room. On the left, we have a snowman costume for 300 credits, a holiday light outfit for 375, a candy cane costume for 300, and a mistletoe bushel for 75 just over the doorway.

Over to the right, a holiday bauble costume and two elf costumes are available for 300 credits each. Also, snowflake wall decals are for sale for 150 credits, a penguin stuffie for 75, and a snowboard and Santa mug both for 100.

In the middle section, a Santa outfit and an abominable snowman suit are notable new additions. Here is the rest of the current stock (prices range from 150-350 credits and 7/24 outfits are members-only):

As for the 12 Days of Member Gifts, we’ve been getting several little merry items to amp up our holiday cheer over the last few days. They include a light-up sweater outfit, a snowman buddy, poinsettia flowers, and three adorable animal mugs (deer, penguin, and white fox). What do you think of this month’s gifts so far?


Once again the time has come to brainstorm some ideas for the monthly costume contest! You can submit up to 3 designs anywhere from now until Sunday, December 19 at 8pm PST.

The fact that it takes place every month really gives a lot of players the chance to have their dream come true of getting their outfit idea into the game! ๐Ÿฅณ Just don’t forget to use #MyPoptropicaCostume and tag the Pop creators if you’re entering via Instagram. If not, you can use their submissions page. Get more details here.


On Instagram, the creators shared some amazing fan creations on their story which I always love to see! There’s so much talent. Check ’em out:

Also on Poptropica’s Instagram, it looks like the creators could be hinting at a new island arriving! At least I hope so (and not a hint for some random mini-quest). It seems unlikely with Goofball Island only being released a minute ago that this possible new quest would be the anticipated Secret of the Jade Scarab, which was the third winner in the Create Your Dream Island contest from earlier this year.

Poptropica’s reply to one of the comments seems to tease the likelihood of an old island making a comeback. (screenshot below) I would be SO thrilled if that were true. It’d be a great Christmas present, right? Drop your guess of which island could be returning in the comments below, hehe. ๐Ÿ˜‰

And that wraps up today’s news. Lots of stuff going on this time of year. Be sure to keep an eye out for more news here on the PHB. Thank you for reading as always and pop on!

Grapple Gifts and Gear Galore ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽ

Happy Grapple-Pap, everyone! It’s time to celebrate Poptropica’s latest holiday tradition! Home Island is now a winter wonderland decked with colorful lights and crates, and the Baron is here with Grapple gear to spread some holiday cheer! โ˜ƒ๏ธโ„๏ธ

The Baron’s Cabin of Curiosities is stocked with holiday dรฉcor and costumes galore! On your right, you’ll find some Grapple-Pap goodies such as a Grapple totem (150 credits), a stained glass chandelier (150 credits), a mistletoe garland (50 credits), a Grapple bust statue (150 credits), and a traditional Grapple-Garb outfit (50 credits).

Among these Grapple goods, you’ll find the three winning costumes from last month’s poll: Love Potion Demon, Ice Cream Cat, and Movie Geek. If you missed these costumes the first time around, now is your chance to get them for free! ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿจ๐Ÿฟ

On your left, you’ll find Maroon Moon’s Dr. Hare outfit, the winning design of November’s costume contest. All players can sport this casual look inspired by Poptropica’s most iconic villain for free! ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿฅ• The Baron can’t help highlighting her generosity if you talk to her.

Now that this hare-raising look is available in-game, the Pop Creators finally posted a video showcase of November’s costume contest entries.

Among last month’s submissions are awe-inspiring animals, Christmas costumes, and… Rick Astley. Now that’s one that’ll never let us down. Anyway, here are my favorite entries from this reel:

By the way, ask the Baron where her Grapple-wares are from, and she’ll mention a place we’ve never heard of: Kraghorn Island. The Baron says it’s not on our map, but might there be a future adventure there like the Baron’s Crusade? Maybe she’ll take us sometime; we’ll see!


In contrast to the Baron’s festive findings, Amelia added two spooky costumes to the Adventure Outfitters gallery: the bewitching Wicked Wizard outfit and the members-only Dark Wizard outfit. While these villainous vestments appear new to newer players, they actually debuted back in November 2019 during Home Island’s wizard makeover. New or not, both of these bewitching looks cost 350 credits.


Along with celebrating Grapple-Pap, members can celebrate the 12 Days of Member Gifts. On the first day, they received winter garlandsnow globe, and deer decorations to deck their clubhouse halls. Then, on the second day, they received violet, gray, and blue beanies to keep their detachable heads warm.

Day 3’s gifts aren’t here at the time of writing this post, but a strange development occurred. While I was on Poptropica today, I discovered that Day 1’s member gifts disappeared from my inventory. It turns out that these initially free decorations can now be purchased from the clubhouse store for 100 credits each. What’s the reason for this happening?


To end off this extensive holiday post, we have a new ad for the Disney Channel original movie “Christmas… Again?!” Watching the short ad gifts you two prizes with special spacebar actions. You can ride around and rev your engine in Ro’s Race Car, then summon a snowstorm, err, flurry with the Mall Santa Suit. ๐ŸŽ๏ธ๐ŸŽ…

This was a lot to cover, and there’s always more news popping into our feeds. Stay tuned to the Poptropica Help Blog for all the latest Poptropica news and more!

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!

Walking with wolves and our creatively festive pets

Hello, everyone! We’ll be checking out one magical advertisement, two wild prizes, three festive accessories, and four creative illustrations. But enough counting, let’s get reporting!

We have a new ad game for the Apple Original film “Wolfwalkers.” To start your adventure, go inside the tree and talk to apprentice hunter Robyn. You have three minutes to explore a dark woodland maze and hunt seven wolves as well as one wolfwalker (a human who can turn into a wolf). When the creatures pop out of their hiding places, walk over to them to capture them.

Once you find all eight creatures, you will be rewarded with the Wolf Follower and the Wolf Transformation. In order to transform, equip the Wolf Transformation item and press the spacebar to (temporarily) become a wolf.


We received a tip from PHB reader PercyJackson1010, who told us that members have received three new holiday items for their pets: Red Plaid Scarf, Reindeer Antlers, and Cozy Sweater. How could we have missed these adorably festive outfits!?


To wrap up this post, let’s take a look at some awesome creations that the Creators have featured on Instagram. We have pet designs by capax_infini aka GEAR, Game Show Island art by PHB author Lucky Joker, a Christmas illustration by happyclonetrooper, and Baby Dr. Hare drawings by adventurersnhunters.


That’s all for now, but there’s still a lot more to come! The new Christmas side-quest is promised to release later today, the Create Your Dream Island contest will be ending tomorrow at 11:59 p.m. Pacific, and we at the PHB will be hosting our “Gone In a Flash” Holiday Party on the PHC this Saturday at 8 p.m. Eastern time. We hope to see you guys there!

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!
