Plaid Patterns Battle Bionic Bee Blitz πŸ§΅πŸ

Hey there, Poptropicans! The Pop Creators gave us new items to buy, new videos to watch, and new teasers to ponder. Let’s take a look at what they shared today, starting with a preview of a loading screen advertising the upcoming Goofball Island side quest!

This screenshot confirms the quest’s title to be “Blitz on the Fritz” and gives us a better idea of the storyline. It seems that Blitz, a red robot bee, is wreaking havoc across Poptropica and causing various islands to either go goofy or become bland. Players might need to do some island-hopping to complete this quest, much like they did during Rumpel’s riddle hunt in Fairytale Island’s side quest.

Is Blitz acting alone or is it working with its bee buddies? Is Katie Dare the mastermind of this island-transforming spree? Members can tune in to stop this byte-sized pest and return Poptropica to normalcy! πŸ€–πŸ


Before a bionic swarm hits Poptropica, let’s see what new items are in store this week. Do Mondays get you in a shopping mood? This drawing by Friendly Feather sums up our mood whenever Pop updates its in-game shops. No Amelias are available for purchase yet. πŸ›οΈβœοΈ

Adventure Outfitters continues Pop’s winter fashion trend with the Frosty Babe outfit, which boasts super cute red plaid flannel vest and earmuffs. Everyone can purchase this flannel-tastic outfit for 250 credits. β€οΈπŸ–€

The clubhouse store added five new winter decorations and two returning classics. All players can buy the Pinecone Garland (100 credits), Hanging Snowflake (75 credits), Scented Candle (75 credits), and Tea Set (200 credits). Members can also buy the all-new Honeycomb Shelf (150 credits) as well as the returning Pop Star Poster (75 credits) and Stained Glass Window (250 credits).


Two new videos have been uploaded to Poptropica’s Youtube channel. The first video is a nostalgic lookback at Nabooti Island‘s mancala minigame. What are your thoughts on this classic game of stones and strategy?

The second video is admittedly more interesting. This video confirms that PoptropiCon: Episode 2 will be returning soon! While this video is basically a reupload of the original PoptropiCon trailer from 2014, the news of another PoptropiCon episode returning to the game is exciting. 🦸


Last but not least, the Pop Creators recently featured a costume contest submission in their latest Instagram story. IG user clovermulo aka Curious Heart designed a stylish Thrifty Girl costume complete with preppy plaid threads, caramel highlights, and sparkly heart earrings. If you want to enter this month’s costume contest, submit your designs before January 17th at 8pm PST.

Frosty Fashion with your Friendly Following Fox β„οΈπŸ¦Š

Hello, you pretty Poptropicans! The Creators just revealed a new winter outfit as well as the last member gift of 2021. Let’s check them out!

Adventure Outfitter’s latest ensemble is the Cool Flake outfit, a curly afro and a cozy hoodie with an icy snowflake graphic. Members can purchase this chill look for 250 credits.

This new outfit is cool and all, but let’s not forget about AO’s new holiday layout. There’s plenty of festive fashion and furniture to get you in the spirit of the season! You can read LJ’s post for more details about these limited-time items.


🎢 On the twelfth day of member gifts, the Creators gave to us… one Arctic Fox Follower~ 🎢

Musical reference aside, this last gift is a cute companion any member should like to join them on their virtual adventures. If you want any of this month’s member gifts for yourself, you can purchase a Poptropica membership and log in at any point this December to have them automatically added to your inventory.

Pair Arctic Fox Follower with White Fox Mug for best and cutest results

We have one new story feature today. Instagram user brittscarlet1 designed an outfit for December’s costume contest: a casual hoodie based on Binary Bard from Astro-Knights Island. It has a similar vibe to the Dr. Hare Fan outfit, which won last month’s costume contest. Imagine fans creating a whole line of casual fashion inspired by Pop’s most iconic villains. I’d pay to see that.

Before I sign off, reminder that the PHB is hosting a Grapple-Pap holiday party on the PHC Discord server this Saturday, December 18th @ 8 pm Eastern / 5 pm Pacific. Come join us for common room games, Discord chats, and holiday shenanigans. We hope to see you there!

Get Crazy Cozy and Vote for Vestments πŸ§£πŸ—³οΈ

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. πŸ‘“

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! πŸ€ͺ🏝️

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!

Catch some Crazy Costumes and Clubhouses πŸ€ͺ🎩🏠

Howdy, Poptropicans! It’s almost time to goof off because Goofball Island, the second 2020 Dream Island winner, will be released in a mere two days! Get silly and get ready to save this colorful island from a monochrome fate! πŸ€ͺπŸ”

To celebrate, Adventure Outfitters stocked up on some new items ranging from stylish to silly. The costume gallery features a new fashionable fall look: the Frosty Flannel. All players can purchase this grey get-up for 250 credits.

In stark contrast to this subdued look, the rest of the store boasts a wide array of wacky articles fitting for the upcoming release of Goofball Island. Our returning items are the various fast food costumes, the autumn clubhouse dΓ©cor, and the Pie Pal Follower. There are also three new items: the Rawr-in Hat (100 credits), the Eye See You googly eyes (100 credits), and the Hatters Gonna Hat cuckoo clock hat (250 credits).


Think some goofy gear is enough to build anticipation for Goofball island? Heh heh… WRONG!!! The Pop Creators also invited players to join the Goofy Clubhouse Challenge! Players are tasked with creating the wackiest clubhouse with the only limit being their imaginations and their in-game wallets. The homeowners of the three nuttiest abodes will win an unspecified amount of credits.

Once you’re done decorating, go to the submissions page and enter either a short video of your clubhouse or your account username so the Creators can take a gander themselves. Act fast because this challenge ends on Monday, November 22, at 8pm PST.


While you deck your dwellings with daffy decorations, don’t forget about November’s ongoing costume contest. You can enter your outfit designs until Friday, November 19th, at 8pm PST. Maybe you could design a bonkers costume based on Goofball Island? The possibilities are endless!


Now let’s check out some social media shenanigans! The Creators made a Youtube short all about dressing up our beloved pets, which is appropriately accompanied by “Who Let The Dogs Out” by Baha Men.

Over on Instagram, the Creators shared some more awesome fan content! There’s plenty of cool stuff from Poptropican doodles to Popsona drawings to poppin’ dank memes.

That’s all for now. Are you looking forward to Goofball Island’s release? Do you think it will be a laugh-out-loud joyride or a foolish folly? Will you get into the silly spirit and dress up yourself and your clubhouse? Let us know in the comments below.

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!

Flowers and Fall Furnishings πŸ

Hello Poptropicans! As we await the release of Goofball Island, I have a few small updates to report. Hope you have your pumpkin spice and cute sweaters ready (that is if you don’t live in the Southern Hemisphere or certain exceptionally warm areas, heh)!

This store update brings back some cozy outfits, as well as the new Denim Delight! Mission Atlantis merch is also still available.

The clubhouse has also got some new fall decor, including a Coffee Maker, Fall Wreath, Pumpkin Bean Bag, and Autumn Leaf Garland. If I’ll be honest, I think a fall forest themed clubhouse background would look so pretty with some of these!


There’s also a new ad for the upcoming Disney movie β€œEncanto.” It can be found on Mythology Island or accessed through the map.

Upon watching the trailer, you’ll receive the Capybara Follower and Flower Power rewards! This Flower Power is slightly different from the OG one though, with the flowers in a similar style as the movie’s.

And that about wraps it up! Have you done any fall decorating in your clubhouses or IRL? And are you excited for Encanto? I haven’t been watching many movies lately, but it looks interesting β€” and very pretty!
