Ads: Odd Squad & BoxTrolls, plus new pop quizzes

Hey guys! PHB commenter Cuddly Knuckle recently gave us a heads up on two new ads on Poptropica, which can be found on Main Streets such as those on Spy Island and Early Poptropica.

Let’s look at the Odd Squad ad first. All you have to do is watch a quick video to earn your prize! Boys get the Agent Otto costume and girls get the Agent Olive costume.

The other ad is for the BoxTrolls, and again, all you have to do is watch a quick video! Afterwards, you will get the BoxTrolls Transformer. When you click “transform”, all the Poptropicans near you will become BoxTrolls!

Also, remember those new pop quizzes that HP mentioned? Well, they’re finally popping up! This one here asks if you would ever join the circus, and the other one shown in HP’s sneak peek asks if you like poetry. For a list of all the pop quizzes available, check out the PHB’s Pop Quizzes page!


That’s all for now!



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.
