Get Crazy Cozy and Vote for Vestments 🧣🗳️

Hey, Poptropicans! Let’s take a look at the latest in Pop fall fashion and revisit some contest-winning classics. After that, we’ll check out a special review of Goofball Island as well as some fun fan art features.

With temperatures dropping IRL, Adventure Outfitters is debuting some cozy fashion for both Poptropicans and pets. Players can buy themselves the oversized Cool Autumn outfit for one easy payment of 250 credits. It’s a simple look that goes well with many different accessories such as a pair of glasses. 👓

Pets get three new items to match their owners’ outifts. All players can keep their pets warm with the Sweater Buddy sweater and Snug Bean hat, which pair nicely with the Snug Vibes outfit. On the other paw, members and their pets can be extra sweet together with the Slice of Pie costume, which matches the Sweet as Pie costume. These cute and cozy critter costumes cost 75 credits each.


While the Creators are choosing the winner of November’s costume contest, players can vote for which of the previous winning designs should return during the Baron’s next visit! If you missed one of these costumes the first time around, here’s your chance to have it return next month. Head over to the Creators’ Blog and let your voice be heard!


Have you had a chance to play through the newly released Goofball Island? Because we’ve got a special review of the island from none other than Emperor Thirsty Flame himself!

In this Twitter thread, the designer of Goofball Island, who also goes by the name Blank Slayte, talks about being pleasantly surprised by the visuals, the gameplay, and his being immortalized as Goofball Island’s founder. It must be exciting and surreal to become a part of Poptropica history. You can also read about how Thirsty Flame designed Goofball Island in this exclusive PHB interview! 🤪🏝️

By the way, we’re loving how much detail is in the new island. Check out our Goofball Island Guide to see if you caught them all!


Speaking of goofy, only a couple hours remain in the Goofy Clubhouse Challenge. You have until tonight at 8 p.m. PST to submit your hilarious homes to the Pop Creators. Good luck, peculiar Poptropicans!


Last but not least, we have five features from Pop’s latest Instagram stories. This particular batch not only has fan art for the new Goofball Island, but even an NFT meme from the official Coolmath Games account. Make of that what you will.

That’s all for now! What do you think of this week’s Adventure Outfitters update? Which of the 10 winning costumes do you want to see make a comeback? What are your thoughts on Goofball Island? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!

It’s time for a Poptropica showdown! In this guest post by Smart Icicle, vote for the best Poptropica villain and see how they stack up with the rest.

Of course, Poptropica has had many more villains since the Pop Creators’ Blog’s great Poptropica Villain Showdown of 2011…

Hello! I’m Smart Icicle and I want to share a poll with all of you! You may not know me, but I’m also known as Target1051 on Poptropica and DeviantArt. I am a big fan of Poptropica. I decided to create this poll because I want to know what villains you like. Whichever villains come out top, I’ll write about them in a future Pop 5 post here on the PHB!

The poll will close two weeks from now, on Feb 13 at 11:59 PM EST.

That’s it for now. Smart Icicle out! 📚❄️

New Pop, New Pad: Voting Time!

Hello everyone, Spotted Dragon here again with a Poptropica update!

As you already know, Poptropica will be experiencing some big changes in the upcoming future. We aren’t completely sure what this “New Poptropica” has in store yet, but we do know that we will be getting pets, shoes, and more cool stuff. And ya know what else? We’ll also be getting houses!

bachelor pads

Yep, you heard right! The Pop Creators have shared a few cool designs with us that we get to vote on. And houses are only the beginning!

“The Poptropica Creators are hard at work on the New Poptropica that’s coming later this year — and we need YOUR help! Over the upcoming months we’ll be asking for your opinions on a bunch of different exciting things that relate to the New Poptropica.”

Now that’s some big news. First, New Poptropica is still on track to be released this year! There aren’t too many more months to go in 2016, so this big update seems to be coming very soon! Or at least before 2017, which is something I guess. Maybe some new islands will be released soon after the update?

Second, this isn’t the only part of New Pop that we get to help decide on. Aside from houses, apparently we get to vote on many other features over the next couple months! Of course, they’ve casually asked our opinions on some features, like shoes, over on Twitter before, but we actually are starting to see what they’ve been working on!

So, be sure to vote on your favorite house design by clicking here. From top left to bottom right in the image above, we have Landmark, Rustic, Beach, Tudor, and Castle to choose from. Personally, my favorite is Tudor. 😛

Remember that the poll closes this Sunday, the 28th, at midnight EST. Vote before then! 😀

Astro Knights Island Is Out!

If you haven’t heard the hype, Astro Knights Island has been released! But, not to the general public, of course. You have to buy an Astro Knights Early Access Pass to get in. The island will be released to everyone on June 10th, so you don’t have to wait that long to play it! Personally, I have bought the pass, but will you?

Also, I know that most of you have experienced difficulty logging on Poptropica the past few days. Dr. Hare has properly addressed this problem:

Q: What’s going on with Poptropica right now?
A: With the launch of Astro-Knights island we’ve experienced an overwhelming surge in traffic. We are working on a solution to handle the increase in traffic to the site.

Q: When will Poptropica be back up?
A: We’re expecting to have the site ready within the next 24 hours.

Q: Is my account information lost?
A: No. The increase in traffic has caused temporary glitches that have made registered accounts unavailable. This is part of the fix we are working on. When we are back up and running, you will have full access to your account.

In fact, they fixed it right in a jiffy! It should be readily working now, and you are able to log in without the stupid machine constantly telling you that your name is forever nonexistent or to check on it later only to find it still repeating the same message like a broken record. 🙂

Oh, yeah; you might see something on the Poptropica website like:

  • ALERT: We’re currently making upgrades to the site. If you have trouble logging in or playing, please try again later. Thank you for your patience.

Just ignore it. Ignore it and walk away. Don’t let peer pressure get the best of you, kids.

ANYWAY, they have made updates to the map to suit the newly debuted Astro Knights Island as well as Reality TV Island. It does note that it is coming Summer 2009! Very cool!

It sure is getting quite crowded on the map. It would be cool to have a huge Poptropica Planet, and you could rotate it to see all of the islands. 😀 That reminds me… how are you able to travel to all of these islands all over the planet in just a simple blimp?

Next on the agenda, we are now able to sign up to be E-mailed when Reality TV Island releases! Yay! Unfortunately, we haven’t gotten the E-mail for Astro Knights, but predictably, we will get it on Wed., the day it releases for everybody.

^ ^ ^ Hippie Man is so awesome that he can say long phrases while he is smiling!

Also, on the Poptropica website you can now see that the little Astro Knight and Reality TV Island buttons have been updated based on the recent news:

The last piece of news is that there is a new poll on the PCB! It asks, “Do you plan on getting the Astro-Knights Early Access pass?

  • I already have it! [14%]
  • I will be getting it soon! [39%]
  • I haven’t decided yet. [12%]
  • No, I think I’ll wait. [33%]

I obviously voted that I already had it, but what did you vote? =O

I think that’s about it! I will try to get a guide up maybe this weekend for people who have bought the pass. We have also hit the 1,100,000 hit mark! Woot! =] What a great way to celebrate my B-Day which is in 2 days! ^-^ Merry Astro-Knight Island playing to all!

UPDATE: Whoops! I accidentally forgot something. Vlad the Viking has posted a new video on YouTube! It’s sort of a trailer/gameplay video of Astro Knights Island. Enjoy!

Wallpapers, Web Development

Winter Wallpapers!

Well, it looks like the Poptropica Creators’ Blog has released their 3rd wallpaper! This time around it is winter-themed!

Also, the poll on the Creators’ Blog asking you what your favorite island was is closed. Nabooti came 1st (with a whopping 75% of the vote!), Spy came 2nd, Super Power came 3rd, Time Tangled came 4th, Early Poptropica came 5th, 24 Carrot came 6th, and finally comes Shark Tooth with 7th.

New guides have came out for Hoops and Sky Dive! Please check them out!

Also, I know Christmas is tomorrow! We hope you all get great gifts and presents! I probably won’t have access to Internet because I’m going over to my cousin’s house to celebrate Christmas. So, I wish you all a merry Christmas in advance! =D

Whoops! Apparently, they added another wallpaper to their post after I made this blog post. Thanks Shaggy Tornado for letting me know!

By the way, they added a new poll asking you what you think is the best thing about the holidays. Having no school is so far leading. LOL!

And finally, we’ve also got a new poll:
Which Poptropica wallpaper do you think looks best on your desktop?

Some of you may remember the other 2 wallpapers the Poptropica Creators had also released earlier this year: the Shark Tooth Island one and the classic blue! We also had this poll when the Shark Tooth wallpaper was released, so you could say this is an “updated” version!

For those of you who like numbers, our previous poll, Who is your favorite Poptropica Creator?, had exactly 2,400 votes! Here’s the results:

They’re all cool!
1,133 47%
I don’t have a favorite…
361 15%
Director D.
208 9%
Shark Boy
