Vertical Stripes and Stories Free for All Guests and Pets πŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΉπŸ‘•

Hello, everyone! The Creators gave us a lot of updates over the past few days. We’re seeing fashion fur-ward outfits, hip-hoppin’ story features, and blogging opportunities for all ages. Let’s check them out!

Amelia just stocked Adventure Outfitters with some new items for both players and pets! The latest rotation gives us Poptropicans the 90’s Vertical outfit, a retro style perfect for going back to school or hanging out at the mall. Everyone can rock this colorful look for a price of 200 credits.

While we Poptropicans have one new outfit this week, our four-legged friends can rock five new pet costumes! All players can dress their pets with the Zebra BucketMighty Hero, and Princess Dress. On the other paw, members can buy the Leopard Growl and Princess Hat. Whether member or not, all of these items cost 75 credits. Anything for our cute little critters! 😺🐢❀️


Now enough about clothes, let’s talk about the latest Poptropica Fan Art Features! Instagram user pinklightningmc made a πŸ”₯fireπŸ”₯ OC edit and redrew a Mighty Action Force comic page. Another user named pompadourcoco drew a funny comic about Mademoiselle Moreau’s arrest, and (shameless plug alert!) I shared my Pumpkin Punk entry for the Red October costume contest. Speaking of punk, don’t forget to submit your punk-related entries to this month’s PHB Community Creations!

At the end of the story, the Creators added a small Hoptropica-themed poll asking fans to vote for their favorite doctor. Looking at the results, it seems that Mocktropica meme Dr. Beev can’t outclass the classic Dr. Hare. Speaking of Hoptropica, you can still play the birthday edition of this 8-bit platformer until September 30! Hop to the top of the high score list and wish a hoppy 14th birthday to Poptropica! πŸ₯³πŸ‡πŸ¦«


Are you a Poptropica fan who wants to share that love with fellow fans, but writing for the PHB isn’t glamorous enough for you? You’re in luck because the Creators’ Blog put out a new call for guest writers! Fans who are 13 years or older can head to Pop’s submissions page and answer what they want to write about and why they would make a great contribution to the Creators’ Blog. They also need to include their own or their parent’s email address so the Creators can contact them.

One exciting development is that fans 12 and under can now submit guest posts, although the submission process is different for them. Younger writers can only submit their finalized guest posts through the submissions page, and they can’t include any identifying information or email addresses in their message to the Creators. Due to this, they won’t have direct contact with the Creators.

Speaking of guest writing, you can still submit a guest post to us here at the Poptropica Help Blog. While it’s not as fancy as getting featured on the Creators’ Blog, you can also reach tons of fellow Poptropicans! Check out our Write for the PHB page for more details!

What do you think of the new outfits? Who’s your Hoptropica main: Dr. Hare or Dr. Beev? Do you plan on writing a guest post for the Creators’ Blog?

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!

Jump for joy, Hoptropica is here πŸ°β˜οΈ

Good day Poptropicans! Hope you’re staying safe and cozy as the holiday season arrives. Speaking of arrivals, the retro-style minigame event we’ve been waiting for is here, and it’s finally got a name: Hoptropica!

Hoptropica leaps onto the first page of the island map and is free for all to play. But it’s only here for a limited time, so you’d better hop to it!

As you can see on the title screen above, the first step is to choose your furry doctor: classic Dr. Hare orβ€”what’s this?β€”the delightful Dr. Beev is here too as a playable character. What a welcomed surprise! Once you have selected your character, it’s time to hop into the game.

The game’s premise and controls are pretty simple: just click above your character in the direction you want to hop (or use the left and right arrow keys), and try to go as high as you can before time runs out!

Of course, simple doesn’t always mean easy. Along the way, you’ll encounter both tricky platforms and helpful items. Here’s a guide:

Helpful items to pick up

  • πŸ• Clock – Grants additional time
  • ⭐️ Star – Grants even more time! (more than the clock)

Know your platforms

  • Pink/Green – Disappears and reappears (time your jumps!)
  • Ridged – Think fast, this platform falls if you stand on it for too long!
  • Clear – Can’t jump on this platform, it’s technically invisible
  • Spiked – Avoid jumping on this platform or you’ll get spiked!

Turn up the volume for a jaunty tune as you hop through the colorful pixel heavens! Hoptropica is visually appealing, fairly addictive, and fun to play, so enjoy it while it’s here. And if you’re really good, you might want to post your high score on social media with the hashtag #hoptropica for a chance to be featured by the Poptropica Creators!


Can’t get enough 8-bit Beev and Hare? The Creators also announced brand new stickers on their Zazzle merch store! Joining the handful of stickers from before are our new 8-bit buddies as well as the icons of islands already ported to Haxe, plus fan favorite Monster Carnival and under-the-radar Mission Atlantis.

They’re available for US$4.95 each, and Zazzle is also offering 15% off right now with the code ZHURRY4GIFTS. Browse Poptropica stickers here!

All right, I’m off to play some more Hoptropica. Stay safe and stay awesome!
