THE SACRED MIDAS TOUCH!

Have you ever wanted to channel King Midas’ famous power — turning everything into GOLD?

Of course! It's my biggest dream to have that power albeit the detrimental side effects that would render me uncapable of communicating as I couldn't touch anything or anybody!

You do?Β  Well, that works out handsomely, because you can just waddle into the Poptropica Store right now, and pick up your very own Midas Touch for the low price of 250 credits. Of course, if you’re wise like myself, you can get it for absolutely FREE!*

Speaking of Poptropican membership, here’s a video of me testing it out:

Pretty sweet, eh?Β  After you’ve seen this video, does your opinion change about membership in Poptropica at all? Do you find yourself on the verge of insanity unless you get your membership? Or, are you not impressed, thinking that you could spend your money on something more useful?Β  Let us know in the comments! ^_^

I know this doesn’t have much to do with Poptropica, but I would appreciate it if you guys took the time to vote in the Best Virtual World for Kids poll on About.com.

http://familyinternet.about.com/od/resources/ss/readerschoice10-voting_4.htm

Shamefully, Poptropica isn’t on there, but another great virtual world, The Travels of Wiglington & Wenks, is!Β  Hijuyo, Coderkid, and I all have accounts on there… so it’s bound to be good, right? πŸ˜€ I urge you guys to check it out for yourself (CLICK HERE! You know you want to move your cursor over here. ;D) and to vote for it!Β  We’re in 2nd place right now only bested by… *thunder crashes* WEBKINZ WORLD! UGH (no offense to Webkinz World players)! Of course, I don’t want to force you to vote for The Travels of Wiglington & Wenks; make your best judgment on what virtual world you want to pick (hint: The Travels of Wiglington & Wenks ;)).

Thanks again, everybody!

Winners & Updates!

Hey readers!

There’s PopToolz to address, new Creators’ blog posts, new side ads, and last but not least the WINNERS!!!…so lets hit it! XD

#1 – New Side Ads! – Credit to Johnny!

Check out these new side ads, advertising the upcoming movie, The Tooth Fairy. Interesting thing to note that it stars Dwayne Johnson, The Rock. OK I admit it – I used to watch WWW or WWE or whatever it was called… Don’t shoot me. And it wasn’t like I was a hardcode (lame joke I know) fan or anything…I was kinda forced to watch it. Don’t ask.

#2 – New Creators’ Blog post! – Credit to…well…me. XD

“Fish, my favorite kind of fountain…”

You’ll never believe what I saw on my adventures recently. A real fountain in the shape of a fish! Have I ever told you how much I love fish? I think I will like this new island a lot!

#5 – An awesome game!

I wanted to tell you guys about an awesome new game I found – it’s called Wiglington and Wenks. Inside of Wiglington and Wenks, you can interact with other players, battle each other in “Balloon Warz”, throw and participate in parties, travel all over the world to places like Singapore, Madagascar, Australia, The Amazon Rainforest, and The Grand Canyon!

The main goal of the game, however, is to find and restore the memories of historical persons who have been accidentally placed in the present. Also, the evil Count Cannaregio has stolen Carto’s Magic Maps from Wiglington, who is the rightful owner of them. The Magic Maps are powerful tools, by which the barer can travel and see back and forth through time. Obviously, in the wrong hands things could go terribly awry.

So if it sounds like your type of game, go ahead and check it out! Hijuyo and I already have account there, called…well, Hijuyo and Coderkid. πŸ˜› Here’s a screenshot of me hanging out in Wiglington Town.

See you there! πŸ˜‰ Click here to sign up. Oh, I should also mention that in a few days I’ll be throwing a party there, so be sure to come! I’ll post about it on the PHF. Can’t wait to see you guys there! πŸ™‚
