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!

Photos to Chase after for some Halloween fun!

Hey Poptropicans! Spooky spectacles are afoot!

Black Widow has been hinting at something to come to the Photo Booth: “It might not be a bad idea to start practicing your Halloween photos in the Photo Booth. But perhaps we’ve said too much… for now.” Are the Creators trying to one-up us with a Halloween contest of their own??

Whatever’s up with that, it can’t hurt to make something cool with the Halloween props in the Photo Booth on Home Island, because it might just win you a free membership if you enter the PHB’s 7th Annual Halloween Contest! It doesn’t end ’til Halloween. Check out this PHB post for all the details!


There’s also a Magnus Chase ad on Main Street of Mythology Island. (Magnus Chase is a new book series by Rick Riordan.) To win this mini-game, just run up to the top-right corner and hop into the blue portal! Watch out for the Ratatosk and raven along the way.

When you get there, you’ll win a Ratatosk Follower and a costume (Sam for girls; Blitzen for boys)!

Plus, album photos for Timmy Failure Island (walkthrough here) are now available! The island came out a month ago for members without photos, but better late than never – although, why does only one picture get a caption? 😛

In other news, Poptropica’s Twitter is no longer in the hands of Poptropica CEO Jess Brallier! According to this tweet, someone else on the Poptropica team now manages all their social media. Hmm.

Another tweet from Poptropica tells us that there’s been an update in Realms: “Monsters now eat, can become nicer, and will drop Poptanium when full!” Check out our Poptropica Realms Guide for more tips and tricks about Realms!


Be sure to check out all the recent posts below to catch up on what’s popping! 😉

Hope you’re enjoying the fall & Halloween-themed makeover on the PHB! 😀

Stay popping, Poptropicans. :mrgreen:



Bikers vs. Boards Island is surfing to you soon!

Hey guys! Slippery here. What, Bikers vs. Boards is coming soon?


It’s just an advertisement for the upcoming Disney movie, Teen Beach 2! (Phew!) You may find one of these ads in some SUIs like Mystery of the Map Island. There are no games or anything, you just need to watch the trailer for the movie.


After watching the trailer, you will receive a prize: a Brady follower (for girls) or a Mack follower (for boys). On another note, Brady and Mack are also costumizable, so if you want to have their look, just press the costumize button by the menu!

If you’ll excuse me, I better go to the beach and have Mack teach me how to surf. 😛


The Percy Jackson ad is still on other Main Streets, so check out those prizes before they’re gone! For other recent news and happenings, check out the previous posts! 🙂



Balance the Boxtrolls: ad game

What’s popping, Poptropicans? Blake here — what? Okay, so the title IS a bit lazily written, but so is the novel based on Disney’s Maleficent. Don’t judge.

Anyway, a new ad has exploded onto Main Streets near you to advertise the new LAIKA and Focus Films movie, “The Boxtrolls“! When you arrive on Main Street (I went on Mythology Island), you’ll be greeted by Eggs (who names a kid Eggs? I DO, THAT’S WHO!) and his stylishly-clothed Boxtroll companions, in front of what I suppose is a Boxtroll hole.

Now, you remember that tightrope portion of that old Open Season 3 ad from a few years back? If you do, the inside of this ad building is going to remind both you and me of that same ad. The game is called Balance the Boxtrolls.

To play, just point your mouse left or right to balance the Boxtrolls, and assist Eggs and the Boxtrolls in changing a lightbulb. (hey, hey guys — how many Boxtrolls does it take to change a lightbulb? FIVE, THAT’S WHAT IT SHOWS IN THE SCREENSHOT! HAHAHA *ok, I laugh way too hard at my own jokes…*)

If you win, you’ll be greeted by a little cutscene of the Boxtrolls changing the light themselves (why did we even bother helping), and you’ll get two prizes, the Boxtroll Buddy and Boxtroll Transformer! Before you ask about the name of the latter – no, this is not Hasbro/Michael Bay CCH CHH CHH CHH Transformers; this is something that turns other Poptropicans into Boxtrolls. This is me showing off the prizes in all their.. um… oil and shoe-iness?

Boxtrolls. Boxtrolls everywhere. Stay popping, Poptropicans.

*gets into box*

See? What did I tell you? BOXTROLLS EVERYWHERE.


Power Rangers: Loogie Chase – Poptropica ad walkthrough

Power Rangers loogie chase

There’s a new ad game on Main Streets (such as Zomberry) for Saban’s Power Rangers Megaforce, and the objective is to lead Vrak’s evil forces, the Loogies (those yellow-and-black creatures), to the Power Rangers at the end of the chase! Thanks to Samwow5 for the heads-up.

The mission: don’t let the Loogies catch up to you, but keep running until you reach the end of the city landscape. You’ll be given a weapon, which you can use to shoot small obstacles in front of you (press spacebar). For bigger obstacles, you’ll have to jump over them. When you near the end, you’ll fall into an underground pit – keep running and you’ll reach the Power Rangers, who will take care of the Loogies from there. Go go Power Rangers! 🙂

For your heroic efforts, you’ll receive a Power Rangers Uniform (pink for girls; red for boys) and RoboKnight Power (surroundings flash red for a moment and you wear the yellow RoboKnight suit).
