Pop Merch Review: Vintage Bandana 🧣😷

Hey Poptropicans! Today, I’m bringing you a quick review of the Vintage Poptropica Bandana from the official Poptropica Zazzle Store.

The product is available in two sizes: kids/small (18″ x 18″) and adult/large (22″ x 22″). Both options feature the classic blue Poptropica throw pattern. It costs US$18.95 and is made of “100% spun polyester,” making it really lightweight and breathable. The material is pretty smooth and reminds me a lot of a cotton bedsheet.

I have always loved this pattern and I’m excited to see it on so many products in Poptropica’s merch store. You can also get it on leggings, a face mask, a puzzle, or a skateboard!

One thing that does disappoint me: the pattern is only printed on one side of the cloth. The back of the bandana is a thin heather white. Though I wish the pattern continued on both sides, it was not a surprise.

I will also say that the pattern’s images are a bit larger than I originally expected! Not a drawback by any means, just something to note. I’m pretty impressed with the quality of the print.

Overall, I’m quite satisfied with this item. Though thin, the feel and quality of the cloth is great, and I obviously love the pattern.

Stay classic, Poptropicans!

Pop Merch Review: Funny Bunny Hat 🐰🧢

Originally published on the Poptropica Creators’ Blog.

Hey Poptropicans! Today, I’m bringing you a quick review of the Funny Bunny Farmer’s Hat from the official Poptropica Zazzle Store.

The cap costs US$14.95 and comes in one style: white/green. Though it comes in one size, there is an adjustable snap strap on the back ranging from 17″ to 24″. The front is made of 100% polyester foam and the back is 100% nylon mesh. It is a trucker style hat, so the mesh back is quite breathable.

The Funny Bunny Carrot Farm comes from 24 Carrot Island and is certainly a recognizable, classic design. Other than this hat, it is also available on a mug. I’m impressed with the quality of the print!

The foam front is a bit stiff, but not too bad. And the adjustable strap works well. The brim is strong, yet flexible, and the hat is overall pretty comfortable to wear.

I’ll be excited to wear my new Funny Bunny hat more this summer and see how it holds up against the brutal summer sun.

New merch coming to boys and ghouls! 👕🎃

Hey, everybody! Yesterday, we received some exciting news from the Poptropica Creators: a new line of Poptropica merch is coming soon!!!

As we’ve seen from their wide variety of products, Poptropica is no stranger to merchandise. Long-time players may remember that Poptropica once offered certain items such as clothing and wall decals, and it looks like this new merch line will provide that and then some.

The announcement post teased a few items that will be available for purchase. We have a sweatshirt with the Poptropica logo, a puzzle of one of the game’s wallpaper, and a blue and white ballcap with the iconic golden blimp. The designs of these items are simple yet recognizable.

Are there any particular products or designs that you would like to see in this new store? The Creators will be taking suggestions until November 4th, so let your ideas be heard!

With Halloween on our front doorstep, many dedicated celebrators are making their costumes. In the holiday spirit, the Creators asked Instagram users to share their in-game Halloween costumes with the hashtag #popghouls for a chance to be featured on the Creators’ Blog! Don’t miss out on this scary cool opportunity!

Whenever we talk about Poptropica and Instagram, we also need to share the cool fan content they highlight on their stories. The Creators featured some spooky and groovy artwork as well as Lucky Joker’s Golden Guerilla costume!

Speaking of costumes, tomorrow is the last day to submit your entries to the PHB Halloween costume contest! Make sure you submit before October 30th 11:59 pm EST for a chance to win a Poptropica membership! Also, feel free to make some spooky stuff for Poptober and Community Creations, which are ongoing until the end of October.

Good luck to everyone submitting, and have a happy Halloween!

PHB Sneak Peeks: Never Shaken, Never Stirred

While looking around, I stumbled upon a picture of these two unseen costumes – Stealth Agent (with super-epic night vision headgear) and Spy Agent (with toilet plunger gun). As it turns out, new Spy Island figures will soon be added to Poptropica’s lineup of 3-inch figurine toys, and come with these!

New Spy Items!

UPDATE: Reader Nicholas (Squeezy Wing) tells us that he messaged Poptropica about these toys and was told that it was buyable for a limited time, and now that the time is over, it can’t be bought again. Strangely, though, they’re still listed as “Coming soon”!

The page for these upcoming Spy Toys is already up, though not yet listed with the rest of the Poptropica toys. Like the other 3″ toys, they’ll probably be sold as an island pack together and only have one actual set of arms and legs (the other is just clothing you can switch on it to customize).

Here’s the official description and picture of the toys:

Spy Island’s top operatives are ready for their next assignment! Disappear into the shadows with the undetectable Stealth Agent, or take center stage with the unflappable Spy Agent. Coming soon!

I have to say, though, the Stealth Agent toy is rather lacking compared to its ultra-awesome-looking online code-redeeming counterpart. 😛 What do you think of these toys? How about the costumes?

Side note: James Bond likes his martinis shaken, not stirred.

Merchandise, Store

We’re in for some merchandise

Just of recent a few new products have apparently been released into Poptropica’s store. For all your viewing conveniences, it could be found here. They got everything Poptropica related for you die hard fans. Shirts, wall graphics, iPhone decorators. Name it, they got it.

These “few new products” include a multiplicity and assortment of posters. There’s only three made, but at least they got ’em so far.

Simple, slick, explainitive…perfect. A picture can explain a thousand words after all. First up we got our Island Map poster. Needed to know any of the island layouts? No prob, bro. This’ll get you up to date with everything. It’s got every island in order and up to exact date, large scaled print size, and some cool looking graphics. Next up we got the medallions. Shiny, gold, and up to date as well. Almost looks like some sorta trophy chest had it not been on printed paper. Finally we have a group pic of all the hotshot characters in the game. Captain Crawfish, Dr. Hare, you name it as well.

For each picture you can select between sizes. You either pick small, medium or large. Prices vary. Then you can choose what kind of paper you want it on – Value Poster Paper, Premium Canvas, etc. Again, prices will vary. You can also see snapshots/images of how this looks on your room framed and all. Lastly, you can even get it framed for a low low price of starting at 85.30 dollars. A little overboard, creators? This isn’t a Nobel Peace Prize xD.

Before I go, some of you may have lost me somewhere upon seeing the guy posting was titled “Rainbow Dash”. Yeah, sounds feminine, I know. That’s because on a quick other note before I end this post: yeah, I changed my name to Rainbow Dash. My old name was EP if some of you remember me posting. And I also changed my profile appearance picture to “Rainbow Dash” from The My Little Pony series. Shock. I know. And very bluntly, that’s because I’ve actually started watching the MLP: Friendship is Magic show. My first question is going to be probably this: why? I don’t know in truth, mainly because ponies are pretty epic, especially when they’re potrayed in some 7 year old’s cartoon. So I guess I’m just saying this to let you know basically that I got my identity and name changed on all my online users, that I won’t be online very much for the next few months mainly because of this and other things like MLP outside of this online community, and I’m most likely not going to be posting in awhile or never so often in truth. Just please don’t mistake me for a new author or something, since RD isn’t. So that’s it, my little note. Thanks for reading.  And before I go, just to put a little happiness and fun into everyone’s day, here’s a MLP gif from online

RD signing off, see you out there.
