SomeBUNNY once told me the world… ๐Ÿ’Œ

Aside from those of us whose most exciting part of Valentine’s Day was a cancelled dentist’s appointment, the PHB hopes you had a happy heart day. All the love to you, dear readers! ๐Ÿ’–

The Poptropica Creators posted a series of cheesy and punny Valentine’s Cards, featuring many different characters (including some from islands and Realms yet to return).

Some of these are really cute. I love the background colors for the first collection! Too bad poor Balloon Boy has yet to land, even for a holiday!


The Adventure Outfitters shop has also been updated for the season, with the classic Heart Knight (300 credits) for all. Or if you want to be “one in Amelia-on,” try out the members-only Stylin’ Outfit (250): a nice mix between casual and fashionista.


Speaking of old islands, we have an ad that hearkens back to an early one. The Big Nate TV series is now being advertised on Home Island!

After watching the trailer, you get two interactive items: Cheezy Snacks and a Drum Kit. Upon activating each, a cloud of cheese dust covers your character, and the drums can be played! You can actually continue to walk while playing the drums (thanks for the tip, Gentle Dolphin).

Are any of you planning on seeing the Big Nate series on Paramount+? And regardless of your single/taken status, remember there are plenty of people, friends and family, who love you. I for one appreciate every reader here and look forward to your comments!

Hearty items and love, to and from fans ๐Ÿ’

Hello, Poptropicans! Gentle Dolphin here with our first pieces Poptropica news in February. Today, we’ll be seeing new items for players and features of fan works. Let’s take a look!

February has a new pack of member gifts all themed around love. Active members will receive the following items: the Lifted in Love power, which makes NPCs float; the Love Bomb, which explodes in a flurry of hearts; and the Love Rocket Scooter, which allows you to zip around in sweet style. How lovely! โค๏ธ


The store now features cozy winter fashion, Valentine’s goodies, and other miscellaneous items! We also got seven new items: Space Bounty Hunter, Slice of Pizza Tees, King and Queen Hoodies, Baby Alicorn Follower, L.E.D. Me, Valentine Minefield, and Heart Bubble Wand. Two of these items remind me of some shows I heard of, but my little brain can’t figure out what they are. ๐Ÿค”

With so many hearty items around, you’re bound to fall in love with something!

Think I’ll name my new baby alicorn “Cool Whip.”

Two days ago, Poptropica featured a bunch of fan content ranging from art to writing. Poptropica’s latest Instagram story showcased a whopping ten art posts from seven different artists! We have art featuring iconic Pop villains, locations, and community members (including the PHB’s resident jokers).


Last but certainly not least, two new guest posts have appeared on the Creators’ Blog! Monday’s post was from none other than the PHB’s own Purple Paw, who details some of Poptropica’s greatest strengths, such as storytelling and visual design. You can read her full post on the Creators’ Blog as well as some of her other posts here on the PHB!

The second guest post comes from BraveSky, a Poptropica veteran (13 years is as old as the game itself!). She wrote a sonnet based on memories from the distant past, referencing classic bits of the game like breaking out of a box (the old account creation process) and hypnotic fried dough (Monster Carnival). The final couplet wraps it up beautifully:

Who says Poptropica is too different; is that truly so?

Ever stop to realize we have again rooms, shoes, pets, my beautiful afro?

If you’re at least 13 years old and want to join the blogging bandwagon, then you can apply to be a guest writer for the Creators’ Blog. But whether or not you meet those arbitrary age requirements, you can still guest write for the Poptropica Help Blog! Details are explained in our Write for the PHB page.

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!
