Valentine’s Day in Poptropica: 2017

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Whether you think this is just a lame commercial holiday or not, it’s still a good day to spread love to the people you care about. Aaaand in some cases that love comes in the form of cruddy Valentine’s Day memes.

But anyway, since the PTFP cares about all of their viewers, I am writing this guest post today to bring you all hilariously cringey Poptropica cards! I do say guest post because while I do still help out with the blog at times, I don’t consider myself a full time author.

Click on the images to see them in their full glory!

Yes, yes, I know those were all very cheesy and obscure, but then again so is this entire holiday. Still, send them to your fellow Poptropicans if you want to spread the love!

Plus, keep a lookout for other people in the community getting into this celebration in a ton of different ways! Shaky Skunk has made some Valentine’s Day cards in the past, DeviantArtists like BlazingAngel123, Slippery Raptor, and SmileyFaceOrg have made some as well, and there of course has been a ton of shipping going on lately. Not to mention the lovey-dovey Poptropica store items you can buy and the sweet photos you can make in the photo booth.

Mashup Mondays: Supernatural

mashup-mondays-header

It’s been awhile, but another Mashup Mondays is here! This time it’s on one of my personal favorite TV shows: Supernatural. Although, it’s rated TV-14, so make sure to get your parents permission first to watch it! Along with this post, I’m hoping to make a news one and maybe another random one soon. ūüėČ Also, there are some¬†creature spoilers.


Direct Creations

I’ve found a couple of creations directly related to Supernatural, but there are plenty that indirectly relate¬†too! Seriously, from Greek mythology to vampires and wraiths, the show has it all. Here they are:

To the left is a motivational poster made by 1313cookie (better known as Brave Tomato) on DeviantArt. Make sure to read the description or else you might not get the reference! To the right is Castiel, a character from Supernatural, on the Poptropica Fashion Wiki. Pretty good if I say so myself!

What’s Poppin’

Hey guys, longtime no post. Recently in the glitch community, my friend Idk has discovered a way to add custom files to a character. Currently, the only available parts are hats,marks, and overshirt/overpants.

Here’s a sample of what we are up to.

Anyways, feel free to request a certain hat and I’ll do my best to design in Illustrator and have my friend Idk generate a custom asset.

Poptropica Worlds: Coming Spring!

Hey guys, Shaky Skunk here. Sorry for not posting for so long.

About a week ago, Skinny Moon submitted a post on the Creators’ Blog that shocked the entire community¬†‚Äď Poptropica Worlds (aka New Poptropica) was announced!

Currently, only “test dummies” are allowed in Poptropica Worlds, but we’ll be able to play it in Spring 2017! (Who knows, maybe it’ll be like 24 Carrot BETA and we’ll get to test it too.) Isn’t this exciting?

According to Skinny Moon,¬†Poptropica Worlds will be hosted on Poptropica.com. Not to worry though, all of our old stuff (names, looks, items, etc) will be carried over. Along with our old accounts, we’ll also be getting:

  • A new look!
  • New, exciting Worlds to explore
  • Favorites from the original Poptropica, remastered for Poptropica Worlds
  • One account for everything Poptropica! (I assume this means we’ll be able to use the same account for both mobile and desktop?)
  • Your very own customizable home
  • More costumes than ever
  • Daily prizes and awesome games
  • And more to come…

More of our questions were answered in this Q&A, so give it a read if you haven’t already. I think we should wait a while before we judge Poptropica Worlds, or at least until we get more information about it. SS out!

January IOTMs: The Time Traveling Genie

Hey, guys, Vampi here.

Skinny Moon released a post last week about this month’s Islands Of The Month, or IOTMs for short. This month is Time Tangled Island and Arabian Nights Island. Due to this, normally you’d get 500 for a first-time finish and 300 for a repeat finish, but since Arabian Nights is an episodic island, you’ll get 1500 for first-time finishes and 900 for repeats.

Also, Captain Crawfish, being the captain he is, decided to make the walkthroughs for Time Tangled and each episode of Arabian Nights.

For Time Tangled, click here, and for the Arabian Nights episodes, click here for Episode 1, here for Episode 2, and here for Episode 3.

That’s it on my side. If you need me, I’ll be watching charity speedrunning marathon Games Done Quick. Keep poppin’ it!

Costume Wonderland!

Despite a bit of inactivity in the first couple of weeks in December on the Creators’ Blog, there have been three posts in the past four days! The two subjects? Wimpy Wonderland Island and the #MyPoptropicaCostume contest.


#MyPoptropicaCostume Updates

If you’ve read our¬†post about some upcoming “very¬†interesting stuff,” then you’ve probably wondered, like most of us, exactly what that meant. Well, it seems as if it was about the #MyPoptropicaCostume contest (although I was slightly hoping for¬†news about the ‘New Poptropica’). But, who knows, maybe something will be announced tomorrow on New Year’s Day! ūüėČ

First of all, like the image above shows,¬†today¬†was supposed to be the last day for entering your costume, but it’s been extended to the second of January! A little gift from Poptropica, I suppose. Although, that’s not even the fun part.

stuffThere will be 2 grand prize winners!¬†That means not just one, but¬†two Poptropicans will get a 6-month membership, and — to me, most excitingly — their costume will be able to be purchased from the Store! Along with all these great goodies, it will be featured on Home Island on one of the Poptropicans.

We get to vote on costumes! Yes, you read that right. There will be 20 costumes that we can vote on, and the 10 with the most votes will win. The prizes of being one of the runner-ups are nearly just as good; you get a 3-month membership and your costume will still be available in the Store later in 2017!

Good luck, Poptropicans!


Wimpy Wonderland Peeks

If you’re interested in what goes on behind the scenes of islands, here’s another¬†batch of some animations and drawings, this time of Wimpy Wonderland! Since it’s one of December’s IOTMs, it’s fitting, and what’s more, it will¬†still be open to everyone until January 2nd!¬†I don’t know about you, but does it seem like a lot of important things are ending the second? Why the second, when Wimpy Wonderland is featured as a¬†December¬†island? Maybe there will be an update that day…or the day after…hmm. Still, here are some of the behind the scenes peeks:

This animation is of Greg and Rodrick, the two feuding brothers:

A Happy Snapshot!

Snapshot!

Since it would be hard to keep up with updates on a page, I figured I could post whenever a new Snapshot was updated! You can either guess which island the Snapshot is from on this post or on the Snapshot! page. A little holiday present from me. ūüėČ

#124 – Guessed by Bendy Flyer!

Make sure to read all the rules, and if you guess correctly, you are emailed my Poptropican’s username and you get put on the Hall of Fame page! Pretty cool. You can also see (almost)¬†all¬†the Snapshots ever guessed on the Previous Snapshots! page.

Have fun!


Happy Holidays!

Poptropica, as always, wanted to send a happy holidays to all you Poptropicans out there! Despite in my last post saying the Creators didn’t seem that busy, Skinny Moon¬†and¬†Captain Crawfish have made a post about how there would be an update next week.

Very¬†interesting,” they called it. Perhaps updates on the New Poptropica? I won’t get my hopes up, but it’s still a possibility that it could be a holiday present for us.

Speaking of holidays, exactly what holidays are there nearby?

  • Hanukkah (evening of December 24th – evening of January 1st)
  • Christmas (December 25th)
  • Kwanzaa (December 26th – January 1st)
  • New Year’s Day (January 1st)
  • Three Kings’ Day (January 6th)
  • Lunar New Year (January 28th)

So, happy holidays! ūüėÄ
