Contests, Fairy Tale Island

A fairy whimsical walkthrough with fashionably late fan art 🧚 🖌️

Hey there everybody! Purple here with a couple tidbits of news on Fairytale Island; and the long-awaited winners of its own fan art challenge. Let’s pop to it!

As you’ll see on their official YouTube channel, the Poptropica Creators recently posted a brand-new video spotlighting none other than good old Fairytale Island itself! In this video, Silent Frog from Poptropica HQ brings us on a full walkthrough of the newly released island. (For a written walkthrough, check out the PHB’s Fairytale Island Guide!)

It’s the first time we’re hearing the name Silent Frog, but it’s possible she’s posted for the Creators before without using a screen name, since her character looks familiar. 🐸

If you watched all the way to the end of this YouTube walkthrough, you’ll find something especially exciting waiting in store. As it turns out, the Creators didn’t entirely forget about the Fairytale Fan Art Challenge, and decided to showcase three promised winners at the end of the video! Congratulations to criahacesium, v.a.m.p.y.r.a, and elisabethian1912 for winning the art contest. (And check out more fairytale fan art features here, here, and here!)

Silent Frog tells us that there was so much talent in the art submissions that the Poptropica team ended up having to randomly pick three winners from a hat, which brings up some suspicions about the delay in announcing the winners (which were originally meant to be revealed on April 23). How did picking names from a hat take such a long time?

We get an answer from an email that the Creators sent to one of the official blog’s guest writers, Invisible Ring, who asked them directly. Ring shared the message with us on our Discord server, the PHC:

As it turns out, they waited to release the winners in their walkthrough video instead of posting it on the date they’d promised. This isn’t the first time they’ve deserted us and only bothered to explain why after a fan directly asked them about it, but at least they apologized for their mistake and are aiming to do better!

Finally, to wrap up this post, the Creators mentioned briefly on their blog that a new fan challenge will be making its appearance sometime soon. I wonder what this one could be? 👀

Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you all next time!

Mystery Train Island

I can’t wait for freight…

Because freight is great! It’s easy to rate (as great)! Whenever I see the freight(train) I run out the gate! If it comes late, then I hate (it)! Why do I love freight? I guess it’s just a family trait! Now enough talking about this great freight. There’s a new post, so let’s skate over! I can’t wait!

What’s in the freight car?

 
Eagle-eyed Poptropicans may have noticed some familiar items in the freight car on Mystery Train. It seems that the World’s Fair organizers brought along a lot of items from other Poptropica Islands!

Can you look at this picture of the freight car and guess which Islands the numbered objects came from?

We’ll give you the weekend to puzzle over it. Then we’ll post the answers next week.

In the meantime, if you haven’t had a chance to take a ride on the Mystery Train yet, visit Poptropica now to play! Mystery Train is open to all.

CAPTAIN CRAWFISH

Why, we’ve posted this a bit late!  The things will be revealed on the 17th, what a great date! We’ll find out, it’s our fate! There are some things from Time tangled, nabooti, mythology and reality TV islands in that great freight. That tiki looks heavy, it must have a large weight! OK everyone, I have to go, I’m in a pretty sickly state. (no really I’m pretty ill) I’d better hurry, for an ill person I’ve got a lot on my plate.

Big Nate Island, Comics, Sneak Peeks

Don’t be tardy!

Don’t be tardy! The school clock says it’s time for class.

You probably guessed it – a Big Nate sneak peek! Thanks to Grumpy Wolf for the reminder! Anyway, this sneak peek is obviously showing a school clock, probably from Nate’s school. Blog picture below:

Blog Post Title: Time for Class
Description: Oh no! I better get to school!

On closer look it seems that the material around the clock is a little broken…

Also, here’s a Big Nate comic from the Creators to keep us all in the spirit of Big Nate. Thanks Blue 6254 for the reminder first.

Special Note: It is not a race to be the first to tell everyone about a new post on the Creators’ Blog. We’ve had many comments saying the same thing (“New post on Creators’ Blog!!!!”) and it is very annoying. If someone has already mentioned it, don’t bother to say it again – it’s not necessary. If people continue to spam and repeat the same thing over an over again, it will show us that you cannot handle this and we will stop giving out credits. Please comment appropriately. Thanks!

Anyway, remember to check the other sneak peeks below when you’ve got the time! 😆
