News & More: #WhereIsTheHare

Hiya Poptropicans! I know there hasn’t been a post recently, but I’ve been kind of busy, and, well, Poptropica news is kind of dry right now. However, there is one piece of news I’m particularly excited about! Before we dive into it, though, I’ll recap what’s happened recently (the Creators have mostly just posted about Crisis Caverns/Pop Worlds):

Those are all Poptropica Worlds related posts. I’ll go into more detail about the others!


#MyPopsona

If you don’t know, a “Popsona” is a persona, or full-fleshed character, in Poptropica. They often include backstories and your Poptropican’s iconic look. The Creators have taken to sharing them on their media recently, with several on the Creators’ Blog itself! Here are some featured ones:

Make sure to click the images to enlarge them and see what account they’re from. You can actually check out #MyPopsona on the PHB’s post with some authors’ Popsonas! I tried to be pretty creative with mine, so check it out if you can!


#WhereIsTheHare

This is the piece of news I’m pretty excited about! Maybe it’s just me, but it seems reminiscent of Dr. Hare’s Travels featured from July 22, 2011, to January 5, 2012. We actually have a page featuring all his travels from that sadly short period of time. He traveled all over the globe, including Argentina, Australia, Colombia, England, France, Singapore, and the United States.

Even though it’s now called #WhereIsTheHare and is shared by Poptropica fans rather than a Creator, I hope that it brings back the theme of Dr. Hare’s Travels. Where do you think he is?


The Poppies 2017

I know, I know! Self-advertisement, eh? Well, if you haven’t heard, the Poptropica Help Blog is hosting its annual Poppies, where you nominate in Pop-related categories and vote for the ultimate winner. One of the categories is the best active fansite (outside of the Poptropica Help Network).

I would really appreciate if you guys voted for Poptropica Tips (this blog), as a lot of work has been put into this blog for over 4 years! Although, if you want to vote for another blog, that’s understandable. I just wanted to put it out there!

They prefer a link, so if you want to vote for the PTFP, put poptropicatips.com. If the blog gets enough nominations, it’ll go to the voting round! Anyway, thank you all for visiting the PTFP! 🙂

Poppy Updates: Spring & More!

It’s been awhile since we’ve covered some news about Poptropica. Since we’ve missed a bunch, we’re just going to link to some of the older news but cover the newer ones!


Islands of the Month + Comic

Now on to March! We haven’t been completely out-of-date, as you can see with our widget to the right. March’s Islands of the Month are…you guessed it…Super Power Island and Galactic Hot Dogs Island! Poptropicans actually got to vote between Super Power and Reality TV (it was super close with only a tiny percent difference!) I chose Super Power. 😉 But remember that March is ending soon so another two will be on their way!

Speaking of Super Power Island… The Creators have released an old comic that was from before Super Power was even an island to play! Just click the images to read:

I thought it was pretty funny, but I have two pet rats myself, and they’re not dirty! 😛

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 – 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!

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! 😉

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. 😉

#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! 😀

It’s an HQ Wonderland!

Despite December being one of the busiest times of the year, the Creators Blog has been rather bare. Still, there are some things we have to cover. Before that, though, I just wanted to point out that the beach umbrella is in the header for the southern hemisphere. 😉 It probably isn’t fun seeing all these winter-themed thingswhen it’s summer for you!


Winter Wonderland

If you haven’t popped over to Poptropica recently, you may not have noticed that Home Island’s mainstreet is…snowing! might as well be in the southern hemisphere because it’s been pretty warm where I am recently, but at least Poptropica is keeping up the spirit.
Here’s a GIF (soft or hard g?) for you if you can’t get on Poptropica yet:

As always, the Store is featuring their winter items, so go check it out if you haven’t gotten them yet! Remember that if you complete Wimpy Wonderland and PoptropiCon, you’ll get even more credits to spend!

You may notice some other sp00py changes too…

But the most shocking one has to DJ Saturday Nite’s new hair color, which looks strangely familiar…

So yeah, that’s all for now. Have a happy yet horrifying Halloween, stay sp00py, and make sure to never run with scissors!
