Happy Thanksgiving from Poptropica!

It's the Thanksgiving holiday once again in these here United States, so the Poptropica Creators are taking a well-earned break to gorge ourselves on various fowl, root vegetables, and buttered rolls. A normal Thursday, in other words, except we don't have to work.

We are thankful to all of the longtime Poptropica fans who have stuck with us through thick and thin, and to new players who are just discovering what awaits them in both Poptropica Original and Poptropica Worlds. You're the best!

Remember you have through this weekend to find the three new followers on Poptropica Original. Just like Thanksgiving leftovers, they'll be gone by Monday!

Three new followers on Poptropica Original -- limited time only!

We've got ourselves a dilly of a pickle on Poptropica Original. We made three new Thanksgiving-themed followers to give away to our players -- but they all ran away!

Here's what we know: they're all hiding on Main Streets somewhere within the Poptropica Original website. If you see one, just give 'em a click and they'll be added to your inventory. Sweet Tato, Cran Barry, and Punkie Pie are all waiting for you to give them a good home. Find them, and they'll follow you wherever you go.

But you've got to act fast! Like Thanksgiving itself, these guys will only be around for a short time. Don't miss your chance to grab these three-of-a-kind followers. They'll be gone when the holiday is. Find them on the Poptropica Original website now!

(Want a hint? Sweet Tato didn't go far from Home.)

Get unlucky this Friday the 13th

Today is Friday the 13th, the unluckiest day on the calendar. Well, we at Poptropica laugh in the face of superstition. Here are some of the places in Poptropica where you can really try your luck.

Cross paths with a black cat on 24 Carrot Island

Okay, so Whiskers is really more of a pale gray color, but that's kinda like black. Besides, when you cross paths with this fickle feline, you will definitely feel as though you've been cursed. Why won't he just follow you?

24 Carrot Island is free to play on both Poptropica Original (web and mobile) and Poptropica Worlds!

Walk under a ladder on Twisted Thicket

When you walk under a ladder, do you think the bad luck is more for you, or for the person up on the thing? On Twisted Thicket, we sure wouldn't mind placing a hex on the lumberjerks and their plans for the enchanted forest.

Twisted Thicket is free to play on Poptropica Original!

Break a mirror (or several) on Monster Carnival

They say breaking a mirror is worth seven years' bad luck. But we think that getting hypnotized and turned into a monster by Ringmaster Raven would be a lot worse than that -- so smash away!

Monster Carnival is free to play on Poptropica Original!

Throw some salt over your shoulder on Ghost Story Island 

This is one superstition that has never made any sense to us. We're totally down with the idea that spilling salt is bad luck. That just makes sense. But for the remedy to be spilling even more salt? That's simply absurd.

Ghost Story Island is free to play on Poptropica Original!

We're willing to be there are even more unlucky places on Poptropica. Let us know what we missed!

The joys of a joystick

Now that the beta version of Dr. Hare's Revenge is available for Poptropica Members, we thought you'd all like a look at the new control scheme we're trying on mobile devices. Here's how it looks:

The first thing to notice is the virtual joystick in the bottom left. This is how you'll move your Poptropican. Place your thumb on the big white dot in the center, and then slide left or right to make your character move.

Just as with the original controls, if you move just a bit, your character will walk, and if you move more, they'll run. But you won't need to move quite so far now.

In the bottom right is the jump button. This should be self-explanatory. Press it to jump. Tap for a short jump, and hold for a longer one.

Last is the smaller button above the jump. There won't always be a button here. It'll appear when you're able to accomplish an action such as entering a door. If there's no context-sensitive action available, then there won't be a button.

So that's it! What do you think? How does it compare to the classic Poptropica controls you're used to?

If you want to get your hands on the new control scheme, become a Poptropica Member today and download the latest update of the Poptropica Worlds app. Then get playing!

The saga concludes in Poptropica: The End of Time -- now available!

Poptropicans, rejoice: the epic conclusion to our graphic novel series is now available!

When The End of Time begins, Mya, Oliver, and Jorge are stranded in the ruins of Poptropica. After causing a cataclysm at the end of the previous book (uh, spoiler alert?), they're alone and seemingly out of options.

The kids may have one chance to return home. If they can reach the legendary "Nexus," a place through which all time flows, then it's possible that they can return home to the instant they left -- or even further back.

Faced with the opportunity to rewrite their own histories, our heroes will have to make the most difficult decisions of their lives. And so will Octavian...

Poptropica: The End of Time is now available from Amazon and other fine book sellers. Get your copy today!

Escape to Cryptids Island

If you have yet to explore Cryptids Island, an incredible mission awaits: a million dollar reward is at stake to prove the existence of Cryptids- urban legends that have remained myths for centuries. It’s up to you to dive into the mystery and provide evidence while conquering obstacles that pop up along the way!


Cryptids Island is full of mystery, and will test your skills through countless riddles and puzzles to solve. Only the smartest and most daring Poptropicans will be able to advance and succeed in finding never-before-seen evidence of the Cryptids: the Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot, Chupacabra, and the Jersey Devil. Locating each of these mythical creatures is a perilous quest, but in my opinion, the hardest to find is the Loch Ness Monster!

The Loch Ness Monster is hidden deep within Lake Loch Ness, and one of the most famous urban legends in history. Your task at Loch Ness is to snap a photo of Nessie- if you can find the real one, that is! The locals claim those who have spotted this monster are crazy and not to be trusted. Your mission will be to prove them wrong! You will soon find out who the true believers are and who is really on your side. Be careful who you trust!



Pro Tip: Playing darts at the pub can be tricky at first, but when you win, you’ll receive an exciting surprise.

·      Male Elk have been known to purposely get their antlers caught in bushes, so they can tear out shrubbery to take with them as camouflage.
·   The modern domestic dog has less in common with the wolf than you’d think -- about as much as you do with the chimpanzee
·      The grizzly’s latin name is ‘Ursus horribilus’, which literally translated means “terrifying bear”.

There’s been a #NewPopDrop in Poptropica Worlds and IT IS BIG!  Some of the most requested features by you- the Avatar Colorizer AND color-changing outfits are now available in Poptropica Worlds! Explore islands in style with your fully customized Poptropican.

Is summer your favorite season? Well we also put out 8 summer- themed outfits so you can make sure your style is in season.


House Expansion— Many of you have been wondering what lies behind the mysterious locked doors in your Poptropica Worlds’ Homes. It’s time to let you all in on the FIRST secret...


A Beach themed House expansion! Now you never have to “really” leave the sunny shores of Home Island. First, find the key that unlocks this new room by going to the Décor Shop and selecting the farthest right tab with a key symbol on it.

Once you gain access to this oasis of a room, it also gives you access to 19 new beach-themed décor items. Look for the decorations marked by the blue banner and key symbol in the store.

Hot Off the Shelves: So far, some of the most popular items are the pineapple wallpaper, potted palm trees, the hammock, exotic ceiling fan, and the porch beach chair. Although personally, I am stocking up on beach balls. I am also OBSESSED with the beach window looking at Palm Trees. The view’s so clear I think can almost see 24 Carrot Island from here!


Poptropican Colorizer— Thanks to the expansive new Colorizer, your Poptropican can now rock any vibrant color you could hope for! Head straight to your Closet and just tap the new, rightmost tab with the paint-bucket symbol. From here you can change your skin and hair color at any time to anything! Now your Poptropican can truly be customized just as you want them to be! The Colorizer allows you to truly have endless options!


Pro Tip: Heads up, if you do select a new color, you will not be able to return to the original one, if it is not supplied in the basic color scheme you have available to you.

Color Changing Outfits— Speaking of crazy colors, don’t miss the sleek and dazzling new threads in the Poptropica Worlds Clothing Store. Head to there today to check out these eye-catching outfits. First off, how cool is it that these outfits change color? Really are a must have. Second, regardless of your Poptropican gender, Pop Worlds allows you to buy either outfit!


New Avatar Store Releases— Discover 8 ALL-NEW summer-themed clothes for your Poptropican! Whether you want to have some fun in the sun, enjoy a picnic or show off your style, there’s something for everyone! My Poptropican was first in line to try on these fabulous new pieces, and I’m loving them all! My first summer stop was the beach, and I grabbed some new pink shades, an ice cream cone and a sunhat to get outside to catch some rays! And of course my summer look wouldn’t be complete without a pair of gladiator sandals! Try mixing and matching different pieces to give your Poptropican a unique flare.


Head over to Poptropica Worlds now to start decking out your Poptropican and House! Be sure to show us how you decorate your new room! http://smarturl.it/PW1.2Launch

Friday Feature Favorite: The Cactus

Happy Friday, Poptropicans! It’s time for another Friday Feature Favorite! One of my favorite things about the Pop Worlds Home Store-the cactus. Having a live plant gives my bedroom such a comfortable atmosphere, and matches wonderfully with the rest of my decorations.




I wanted to model the theme of my bedroom around my cactus, so I chose blue wallpaper to match the vibrant green color, a desert painting and a rustic lamp to tie the look together.
