Today Only: Wimpy Kid / Poptropica Flash Giveaway!

Hey guys! SD here with some flashy news!

giveaway

Today and today only, Poptropica has teamed up with Abrams, the publishing house of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, to bring a cool giveaway to us.

As you may know, the Wimpy Kid inspired islands are April’s Islands of the Month and that of course is because April is Wimpy Kid Month! Right now, these islands are open to everyone, not just members as they usually are the rest of the year – so take advantage of that while you can! 😉

But more on this giveaway, right? By entering on WimpyKid.com today (April 12), you might just be able to win a Poptropica-Wimpy Kid prize pack! In this pack, you’ll get:

  • A 6-month membership to Poptropica.
  • Copies of Cabin Fever and Dog Days, the books that inspired the Wimpy Kid Poptropica games.
  • The first three books of the NYT bestselling Poptropica graphic novel series: Mystery of the Map, The Lost Expedition, and The Secret Society.
  • A Dr. Hare plush toy.

To enter, go to the Wimpy Kid Giveaway page and click on the 12, which is today’s date. Just fill in the information, and you’ve entered! But if you’re under the age of 18, remember to get a parent or guardian’s permission first. 😛

If you’re a huge Wimpy Kid fan, the site is having other giveaways this month too, but this one is currently the only Poptropica-related one, so you better act fast, Poptropicans! Good luck to everyone! 😀

In other news, the PHB is sad to announce the departure of one of our staff writers, Perfect Sky. PS leaves us with a brief word, posted below:

The main reason I made this decision is because I just don’t have enough time to keep up with blogging and everything that’s going on in the community. With other priorities in real life, I don’t think I’ll have time for everything here, nor will I have the time to start my own blog.

I haven’t necessarily lost interest in Poptropica itself – while there are definitely recent updates with the game that I’ve been disappointed by, I’m sure I’ll still log on to Pop occasionally and replay classic islands in the future. After all, it’s hard to immediately totally forget about a game you’ve had over 9 years of memories with.

For now, you can still find me on Discord and Twitter, and I’ll continue to read and support blogs in the Poptropica community.

In addition to her blogging endeavors, PS is also known among the community for her super creative Poptropica movies, which you can find on her YouTube channel, PoptropicaPerfectSky. You will be missed around here, Perfect Sky! ✨

Contests, Photo Booth

The PHB’s 7th Halloween Competition (and 20M Hits Bonus!)

7thPHBHalloweenCostumeContest

Boo, Poptropicans! Halloween is approaching, and that means… it’s time for another Halloween costume competition here on the PHB! This will be our 7th year in a row, but we’re adding a special twist: with the recent Photo Booth added to Poptropica’s Home Island, you can enter a picture creation for a chance to win a membership from the PHB! Sound spooktacular?

Part I: Costume Competition

Traditionally, Poptropicans submit their best Poptropica Halloween costumes in the comments section by giving an Avatar Studio link and/or posting their username. Keep in mind the following tips:

  • Be original! Mix and match to create your own unique costume(s).
  • There are some great Halloween costume parts at the ghoul gathering from the end of the Haunted House quest from the Store, as well as the collection of free costumes in the Store, but be creative and search in other places too!
  • Keep your costume intact until after the winners are announced, or we may not see it! If you don’t want to keep the costume on your main account, create a new one and post that instead.
  • To post your entry, go to the Avatar Studio, type in your username, click Load, click on the Link to highlight it, right-click and choose Copy, go to the comments section on this post, right-click and choose Paste, type in your comment and submit so we can view your costume by clicking the link! Name your costume and post the username if you want.

PRIZES: On Halloween (October 31st), we’ll make a post featuring the winning costumes, plus they will also be immortalized on the PHB’s Costumes page, where you can also see examples of past winners. We’ll have 10 winners for the costume portion, but wait, there’s more…

Part II: Photo Booth Competition

This year, to celebrate our recent milestone of 20 million views here on the PHB, we’re adding a new portion to the competition: the Photo Booth, where we’ll pick another 10 winners for a total of 20!

If you haven’t checked out the Photo Booth on Home Island yet, now’s the time! Poptropica recently added lots of Halloween props to the feature, and you can check out the PHB’s Photo Booth guide here. The objective of this competition is to create the best Halloween picture with your character in it using the Photo Booth, which means you’ll need a snazzy Halloween costume on (see part I)!

For anyone entering this part of the competition, you’ll also need to complete Part I and share a link to your Poptropican to prove that you own the character you use in your Photo Booth pic. This part is optional, but like the first part, we’ll be selecting 10 winners, and the PRIZES get better…

  • First place: 6-month membership
  • Second and third place: 3-month membership
  • 4th to 10th place: 1-month membership

That’s right, you can enter for a chance to win a membership paid for by the PHB!

Important: If you are selected to win one, you must be comfortable in privately contacting us with your login credentials (username and password) so that the membership may be awarded. If you have a currently active membership and are selected, keep in touch with us about when it expires and we will work something out (or, you can donate your membership prize to an honorable mention entrant). 🙂

How to enter:

  1. Create your picture with the Photo Booth on Home Island, being sure to include your character wearing a spooktacular Halloween costume somewhere in it.
  2. Press the green checkmark button to save the image to your computer.
  3. Upload the image somewhere on the web (for example, tinypic) that will give the image a URL.
  4. Copy and paste the image URL into the comments section along with the instructions from part I (Avatar Studio link of your costume and/or username). This will allow us to see the image online.

Note: For both competitions, you can submit as many entries as you like, but you can only win a maximum of one time. Have fun! You have until Halloween.

Happy Halloween, Poptropicans… 😈

May the spookiest rise from their graves.
