Touring with Timmy on Main Street!

Hey Poptropicans! Timmy Failure Island is now open – well, just Main Street and not yet in glorious technicolor – but if you talk to Timmy on the very left, he’ll tell you that if you enter the promo code TIMMY, you can get 50 credits! (That’s in addition to all the credits we’ve been getting from the Daily Pop-In, which, by the way, has totaled to 500 credits!)


New prizes will be available from Timmy every Thursday up to the Early Access release of the island on September 17th for members. Anyway, let’s check out what we can see so far of Timmy Failure Island! You can click on the screenshots to enlarge them.

Most of the buildings are closed, with the exception of the Timmy Failure Store, which is displayed in full color. There’s a building that appears to be a bank, offices for rent, Maury’s Museum of World Records, and bowling lanes. Plus, you can watch two videos (you can also view them in Slip’s post below).

Hyper Gamer managed to reach this part of the office scaffolding and pick up a Screw Driver item. However, it disappears from the inventory when you leave the game.

Also, if you check your medallions in the Friends section, you’ll notice the Timmy Failure Island Medallion has been added at the far right!

Plus, check out Slippery Raptor’s post, which also gives out a special promo code for a Timmy Failure prize, the Señor Burrito Follower (it’s a pet cat!). :) Stay popping, Poptropicans!

To send in entries for The POPCORN, simply email us at, comment on this blog, or tweet us @Poptropica_Help. We’re looking for all kinds of Poptropica fan creations, including stories, fan art, comics, costumes, island ideas, and whatever else you can think of. We’ll also be scouring the web for some handpicked selections, including the We-Love-Poptropica deviantArt group. Remember to proofread your own submissions – your work is your responsibility! That being said, we’re always excited to see what you guys come up with.  :D

Unlike with previous series of our magazines, we are currently not committing to any specific schedule. Anyway, you can enjoy this issue and all the past issues over on our Magazines page. We’ll be publishing each issue as a PDF, so leave your comments on the posts!

Stay popping, Poptropicans. ;)

Hope you enjoy our pop-pop-Poptropica Help Network fan magazine!  :mrgreen:

Shaun the Sheep ad, Pelican Rock, & Jeff Heim’s Poppie

Hey Poptropicans! SFish here with the latest Poptropica happenings.

There’s currently an advertisement building for the Shaun the Sheep movie (in theaters August 5) on Main Streets. Inside, you can customize two fluffy sheep costumes, interact with other players like in common rooms, and grab two prizes: the Woolly Blow, a gun that adds a poof of sheep hair to the heads of characters you point at, and the Sheep Belch, which makes you belch comically.

(Thanks to Slippery Raptor for the ad pics!)

The Shaun the Sheep ad is on the Poptropica mobile app as well, but the prizes are a Timmy Follower (Timmy being a sheep character) and a sheep piggyback item. (Thanks to Anonymous for the tip!)

Meanwhile, the Creators haven’t posted many Daily Pop sneak peeks this month (slackers :P just kidding), but a more recent one gives us a peek at the name of the prison facility in the unnamed prison island: Pelican Rock – possibly modeled after the Pelican Bay State Prison in California.

Well, we’ve seen seaside jails on Ghost Story and Super Villain Island, and they haven’t worked out too well… wonder how this one will hold up. ;)

Finally, a bit of post-Poppies news: check out the Poppie trophy Spotted Dragon sent to Jeff Heim, which he constructed (with a few scissor mishaps) and posted on social media! :D

(Plus, you can get your own Poppies Participant paper craft like this one on our event recap post!)


Congratulations to the Monster Carnival Island Main Theme for winning Best Soundtrack among the PHB readership. If you haven’t already, check out the list of all Poppies winners here, plus click here for a recap of the event with pictures – and Captain Crawfish’s reaction! :)

Recap: the Poppies Awards Show & PHC Parties!


Hey Poptropicans! Didn’t we look snazzy on that header? Well, the first ever Poptropica awards show, the Poppies, is now over, but we hope you had a blast at the red carpet! Thank you to everyone who made nominations and voted – you guys made an impact in the results for the event, and for that, you can enjoy this Poppies Participant paper-craft trophy created by Spotted Dragon! Here’s the link.

If you haven’t already, be sure to check out Blake’s PHB post for the announcing of the winners, which includes HPuterpop’s livestream with several others on the PHB staff. During the party, we also had several Multiverse rooms filled with impeccably dressed Poptropicans, and the PHC (our chat) was pretty lively in anticipation of the winner announcements. Check out the recap montage! :D

To give everyone a better chance at being able to make it to the celebrations, we hosted an after-party as well, about half a day after the first one. In addition to the Poppies, we also celebrated the PHB’s 7th anniversary. Happy birthday to the Poptropica Help Blog! The Multiverse rooms were filled with balloons, soda pop, and lots of lag. But at least we were having fun! :mrgreen:

Also, thank you to everyone who voted for me as Best Author; I’m deeply honored. :’) Spotted Dragon even sent me a foldable Poppie for my award, and it looks pretty Oscar-esque! <3

Again, don’t forget to check out your Poppies Participant award at this link. If you print it out and make it, do send us a photo by email, blog, and/or leaving a comment on this post to let us know! (Also, if you can prove your Poptropican name is Golden Dragon, the winner of the Best Poptropican Name category, SD will personally send you your own Poppie.) ;)

If you enjoyed chatting on the PHC (Poptropica Help Chat; our official PHB chat hangout), remember that you can always come back to it any time (not just during official parties!) to hang out with other Poptropicans and have fun (within the boundaries of the chat rules listed on the page, of course). The link is, or you can access it by going to the “Chat” page from the navigation bar up top.

And no awards show would be complete without a few shout-outs: here’s to Jeff Heim, possibly the first Poptropica Creator to ever comment on the PHB – and it was in the spirit of the Poppies!

A shout-out also to Captain Crawfish, or shall I say The Award-Winning Captain Crawfish? Not only did he win the Best Creator category, he made a subtle reference to it in today’s Creators’ Blog post about the Daily Pop-In! We may like to nom crawfish here, but we love you too, Captain.

It’s been a great event, and we here at the PHB hope you enjoyed it as much as we did! Thanks especially to Slippery Raptor for the initial idea, for turning the annual PHB birthday celebrations into something more. Again, check out Blake’s post and HP’s livestream for a list of all the winners.

:star: Thanks for popping in, and have a stellar day! :star:

App-date with chat, Balloons, MotM Island & costumes!

Hey Poptropicans, SFish here with news on the Poptropica app (P-App-tropica? I’m crediting fellow PHB authors Slippery Raptor & Spotted Dragon for the puns and pics in this post ;) ).

App-arently, the Poptropica mobile app for iOS and Android has just gotten another app-date. The first thing you’ll notice is Dr. Hare’s app-solutely wacky Mystery of the Map assemblage on the icon. That’s because Mystery of the Map (MotM) Island was just added, for free – and if you need a walkthrough with pictures, check out our Mystery of the Map Island Guide!

In addition, two new costume packs were added, both for MotM Island. There’s the Mystery of the Map Bundle Pack, which is $0.99 like most costume packs on the app, and a second Viking Feast Pack which is free – and contains some new costumes that don’t exist in the online version: Gravy Gnasher, Bruised Basher, and Sausage Smasher!

Also, the Multiplayer Arcade (App-cade? Should I stop with the puns?) has been updated to include chat, which works slightly different from the online version. In the picture below from the Creators, you can see that when people ask you a pre-scripted question, you can choose to reply, give a greeting, compliment, or ask them a question.


And as you can see from the picture, the multiplayer game Balloons can now be played in the Arcade. (Hey, it’s Balloon Boy! He must be app-alled to find himself still in the sky after all this time…) For our walkthrough with tips, check out our Balloons Guide.

That’s a pretty big app-date for the app, but it’s not the only update going on in the Poptropica universe! In case you missed them, check out the PHB posts below for the latest happenings:

Stay popping, Poptropicans, and see you on the red carpet for the Poppies awards show coming up! :)

All you’ve got to do is rub that lamp (Arabian Nights Ep. 3 for all!)

Oh Mr. Sultan, sir, what will your pleasure be?
Don’t mind your daughter, Scheherazade – you ain’t never had a friend like me.

Well, except that scoundrel of a genie is more of a mischief-maker than a friend. But you’ll find out… three weeks after releasing to membersArabian Nights Island, Episode 3: Careful What You Wish For can now be played by everyone! Have your divination dust at hand!


If you need a bit of help capturing that tricky genie, check out our Arabian Nights Island Guide for a written walkthrough with pictures! Plus, when you’ve completed the island, you can check your finish rank on the Arabian Nights World Champions Map.

Oh, yes, that genie really is a piece of work. ;)


Well, episode two had them forty thieves,
and Scheherazade had a stolen youth.
But fear not, for though she grieves,
you’ll make the Sultan see the truth…

UPDATE: The upcoming Timmy Failure Island is now on the Map as coming soon!

Screen Shot 2015-07-23 at 4.15.16 PM

It’s anticipated to release in September, plus you can find sneak peeks and more on our Timmy Failure Island page. Stay tuned for more news, and let us know in the comments what you thought of the final episode of Arabian Nights!

The Poppies: it’s time to vote!

poppies vote

Hey Poptropicans, and welcome back to The Poppies Awards Show with the Poptropica Help Network! A week has passed since we last met on the red carpet, and you guys have brought up some phe-nom-inal nominations. (That’s a double use of “nom” right there. Hey, could we have some snacks to nom for this next part? It’s no secret they serve some pretty good crawfish in the Poptropica blogosphere…)

Anyway, the nomination round of the Poppies is now over, and we here at the PHN have taken a look and narrowed each award category to five of the most popular options suggested by all you readers (with some exceptions). Now the next round is upon us: without further ado, you can now cast your votes in the survey below! This survey will be open all throughout the week.

The survey is now closed. Tune in to our Poppies livestream to hear the winners announced, and celebrate with us at our PHC parties in Poptropica Multiverse rooms – all details in this PHB post!

(In case the survey isn’t showing up, you may also use this link to vote.)

Thanks for voting (assuming you do, of course!), and we’ll see you back on the red carpet for the final unveiling of winners next week, on the PHB’s 7th birthday: July 26th!

Plus, check the details for our awards show parties here, and be ready to come dressed to impress in your Poptropican best – it’s an awards show, after all! ;) Now pass the crawfish, the show hosts have to eat too, you know. :P

Don’t forget to vote in the survey above!

Plus, pop in for the final Poppies celebration and results next week. :D
