Home Island

Since we’ve no place to go, let it snow โ˜ƒ๏ธ

Hey Poptropicans, have you seen that Home Island is covered in snow? โ„๏ธ It’s different from last year’s winter makeover โ€” you won’t find any falling snow, random birds, or snowballs to grab.

Instead, you’ll find colored lights, lamps, and garlands on buildings, plus a wicked bearded snowman beside the New You building. Jolly good! โ˜ƒ

And if you haven’t already played it yet, don’t miss out on the new Grapple-Pap Gift side-quest by talking to the old man! ๐ŸŽ It’s only here for a limited time, so enjoy it while it lasts and spread some holiday cheer before Grapple-Pap comes for you!

After you’ve played the side-quest, you might enjoy this fan video from jaekelopterus3 (Perfect Fish) containing an analysis of the visual storytelling with the design of Clareta and her rundown home. (Beware: Spoilers ahead.)

Plenty more is going on around Poptropica, so be sure to catch up on the post below to see what else is new! And check back on the PHB tomorrow for a special post โ€” we’ve prepared the perfect Poptropica entertainment to snuggle up to this Christmas. ๐Ÿ“ฐ๐Ÿฅฐ

Have a merry Christmas Eve โ€” or just a quiet, socially distant day, considering the times โ€” and happy Grapple-Pap! ๐ŸŽ„

Wimpy Wonderland Island

Walking in a Wimpy Wonderland

It’s as clear as black-and-white (literally!):ย Wimpy Wonderland is the next Poptropica island!

Here’s the island description from the official info page:

The kids in town are enjoying a snow day โ€“ all except for Greg Heffley, whose little brother Manny has gone missing! Itโ€™s up to you to find Manny, but before you do, youโ€™ll have to contend with surly teenagers, crabby senior citizens, and those rotten Whirley Street kids. Join Greg, Rowley, Rodrick, and the rest of the Wimpy Kid characters for a snow-capped adventure youโ€™ll never forget!

We also have our own WW island page here and it is also listed on our Island Help. Note that there are more Wimpy sneak peeks from the Daily Pop if you’re interested – the black-and-white ones.

Right now you can log in to Poptropica for a sneak preview of the upcoming adventure and talk to some of the characters, including Greg Heffley and weirdo Fregley (“Wanna see my secret freckle?” xD). You can also chase Greg’s little brother Manny up a tree, but if you try to enter any buildings, it will tell you to come back in mid-March. That’s right, Poptropica members get to play this island this month!

For those who didn’t know: Jeff Kinney is the creator of Poptropica, and also the author of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid book/movie series, which this island is based on. So this is pretty cool, since everyone loves DOAWK, right? ๐Ÿ˜€ (shame on you if you don’t. :c)
