Illustrative Instagram stories and bizarre bunny memes 🐇

Happy beginning of hot blazing horrible weather, everyone! 🌞

Poptropica’s social media activity has been up this week, with tons of new Instagram stories, as well as an odd Twitter post recalling our dear Dr. Hare. First, let’s turn to the ‘gram…

Among the feature are highlights to the latest Poptropica store update and the nearing end to the first of the new Monthly Costume Contests.

There is also a particularly large number of shares for fan art features:

There’s some really cool art in here! Glad to see entries for the Monthly Costume Contest as well. I personally love the sharp design and dramatic color scheme of the Black Widow piece! 🕷


Meanwhile on Twitter, the Creators tweeted a “Feel old yet?” joke, featuring Dr. Hare and a Snapchat photo of actor Matthew Gray Gubler in pink bunny ears with the caption “I hate it here.”

Wait, what was that?

While memes can be a fun way to spread hype and provide some comedy to a community, this more obscure and random one is a bit out of character for Poptropica’s usual social media antics. Several people were quick to comment with a mix of amusement and confusion.

What do you Poptropicans think? Are there any particular artists or pieces you like from the gallery, and what do you think of this odd addition to the Twitter timeline?

Until next time (yes I do remember the Island Flash-backs, they will be returning!) stay creative, maybe by making some Poptropica memes and joining our Community Creations this month!

Fairy Tale Island, Fan Art Features, Social Media

Fairytale fever and villain fan art 🏰😈

Hey Poptropicans! 👋 Fairytale Island has been out for just over a week now, and with it we’ve gotten a video playthrough from the creators, tons of fan art, and even a spoiler-free official tour page.

In case you missed it, the PHB’s also released resources for the island, with a Fairytale Island Guide containing a written walkthrough, pics, and trivia, as well as our Fairytale Island Review where we shared our thoughts on this new adventure (and enjoyed yours in the comments). The creators even dropped their thanks on our Instagram post!


Speaking of Instagram, the Pop creators have been back at it with more fan art features on their story! Check out the latest gallery:

It sure is fun to see different takes on Poptropica characters old and new, and Rumplestiltskin is fast becoming another fandom favorite! 😈

That’s all for this update. Catch up on more news and other fun stuff in our posts below, and keep on popping, Poptropicans! ✌️
