A walk through PoptropiTikTok ðŸ“±ðŸŽ¬

Hey Poptropicans, tune in for a little show of Pop-ular TikToks curated by the Pop Creators! Here’s a peek at what we’re getting into:

(Note: If TikTok is blocked in your country, the embedded links below may not work. However, you can find more screenshots on the Creators’ Blog!)

First up is a Dr. Hare cosplay from @gokuostrich! Seductive and amazingly alike with the real deal. Peep the plushie in the shot, too. 👀🐰

Next up is a clip from @basicbutstillvibin remixing the meme-able line, “don’t make me choose between you and her.” The battle is fought between homework and Poptropica — and the winner is clear. 📚🤺

Then we’ve got a mini painting from @violetmasque (previously @toothpick_with_eyes), who shows the process of converting their computer keyboard’s “P” key into the Poptropica letter logo, complete with the iconic yellow blimp. Epic! ⌨️🖌

Another artistic twist comes from @binarybard, who shares transformations for several Pop characters: Mademoiselle Moreau, Binary Bard, Black Widow, and even one of the governor’s men from Skullduggery Island. Looking expressive—and impressive!

Wrapping up the showcase are a couple recent TikTok clips from the Pop Creators themselves, which you might’ve seen here on the PHB. One goes dark with the madness of various Pop villains, while another shines a light on decorating Pop clubhouses. Tok about what makes Pop tik!

That wraps up this walk through Poptropica TikTok! If you make Pop TikToks, you can tag the Creators @poptropicacreator or drop a link on their submissions page. Who knows, it might get featured next!

Clubhouse, Glitches

Comebacks for credits, club edits ðŸ’°ðŸŽ¥

Heyo, Poptropicans! This week in Pop news: cop some credits, clubhouse vibes, cakewalks, and even a mysterious console. Pop in for a peek!

First off, island completions are awarding credits again! The feature inexplicably disappeared last month, but a little Pop Petition might’ve helped bring it back. The Creators’ Blog announced this in a post that promised more shopping to come and gave tips on how to rack up more credits. (But hey, the PHB’s got you covered with even more ways.)


Next up is a little TikTok on the clock (’cause the party don’t stop). The latest short video to drop from Pop shows a Creator decking out a clubhouse with plenty of homey decor. It’s even got music!

And if you’re like me and live in a country where TikTok is blocked, fret not—you can still view the vid on the Creators’ Instagram story.


Speaking of sweet vids, the Creators also dropped a video playthrough of Disney’s Magic Bake-off ad game! In case you missed it, check out the PHB’s coverage of this cake-making limited time event.


Last but not least, on Wednesday, some intrepid PHB readers shared an odd sighting: the Mjölnir, aka the Realms hammer, made an appearance in the lower-left corner of the menu screen! Clicking on it brought up a small window on the upper-left corner known as the dev console, a tool for game developers that shouldn’t normally be available to players.

Of course, the dev console didn’t reveal any significant findings to us plebes who don’t know how to hack it, and it soon disappeared from view. Still, a strange sight to behold! Now if we could bring back Realms, that would be something…

That’s all for now, though. Keep on popping on, Poptropicans!

Clubhouse, Creators' Blog Guest Posts, Sneak Peeks, Social Media

Spellbinding sketches, dazzling décor, and famed felons âœï¸âœ¨ðŸ˜ˆ

Hello, everyone! It’s time check out some new Poptropica updates regarding drawing, interior decorating, and kidnapping. Need context for that last sentence? Keep on reading!

First, the Creators announced a new mini quest coming to Poptropica. While they didn’t say much regarding the story, they did gladly share a thumbnail sketch. It shows Amelia and a black cat taking a selfie while two other characters are in the middle of a magical baking mishap.

The woman with curly hair and glasses looks familiar. In fact, her likeness is featured alongside Amelia and (formerly) Xavier on a set of statues on Home Island. It looks like we’ll finally get to learn the identity of this studious sorceress. 🧙‍♀️📚


Five new furnishings have graced the clubhouse store! Players can decorate their virtual homes with a Poptropica flag (100 credits), a set of lighting panels (75 credits), a summer wreath (150 credits), and an oil diffuser (100 credits). Meanwhile, members can make their clubhouses extra colorful with the LED fan (150 credits). Here’s a picture I took of the new items in my clubhouse.


A new video showed up on the official Poptropica TikTok account, but it also made an appearance in Pop’s latest Instagram story. This new video highlights some of the more problematic elements of our favorite villains, particularly the fact that they all share kidnapping tendencies. Here are a few stills as an example.


Last and certainly not least, Golden Wolf returned to the Creators’ Blog to share more of her art. In her latest guest post, GW showcased fan art of myself, PHB founder Slanted Fish, and fellow writer Smart Icicle! Thank you so much, Golden Wolf! ❤️🥰❤️🥰

GW also mentioned that, every month, she will draw an anime character as a Poptropican and share it on her future guest posts. As an example, she drew Sakura Haruno from Naruto, which was featured in Poptropica’s July Costume Contest video compilation. Which anime character do you want to see drawn in the Poptropica style?

That’s all I have for you today. What do you think the new mini quest will be about? Which villains should be called out next? Let us know in the comments below!

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!

TikTok, threads, and more!

Howdy Poptropicans! It’s LJ here with a couple news and updates.

So Poptropica is on TikTok now (@poptropicacreator)… interesting. I’m wondering what they’re going to share other than what we already see on Instagram or the Creators’ Blog. Perhaps some nostalgic content? They announced their arrival to TikTok on their Instagram story with a slideshow of scenes from old islands:

Update: This video later became their first TikTok post, including a slightly chipper voice reading out the text shown on-screen. (Thanks to paris for the news!) The text reads: “If you know, you know. 2000’s kids definitely remember. Poptropica is still putting out new islands!!”


Next, another week has passed which means there a few new items on sale at Adventure Outfitters including a couple of classic costumes like the Rock Star and Little Demon. You can see the newly available items indicated below:


In more exciting news, Fairytale Island is practically here! The highly anticipated Dream Island contest winner launches for all players tomorrow (April 22)! I hope the creators will bring back the World of Champions map. I really liked that feature because it was cool to see where you ranked in terms of how fast you were able to beat the quest.

In spirit of the new island, Poptropica has yet again featured another set of amazing entries for the Fairytale Fan Art Challenge over on their Instagram page — by various artists (some of whom we’ve featured here on the blog as part of our Pop Fan Artist Spotlight series). You can check out some more of the awesome submissions by viewing their Fan Challenges story highlight on IG.

Don’t forget that time is almost up to submit your art for the contest. The deadline is tonight at 8PM PST (9 hours from now), so hurry it up if you want a chance to win those credits!

Thanks for reading as always and I’ll talk to you in the next one. Pop on!
