Week 5 Sweepstakes Winners and Twitter Roundup!

Heyyo Poptropicans, it’s Ultimate iPad Expert here. The Creators announced the winners for the final weekly Island Hopper Sweepstakes winners! And here they are:

Congratualtions to Greedy Turtle, Happy Heart, Lucky Club, Skinny Tiger, and Sleepy Sky! 😀 If one of these Poptropicans is yours, you’ve just one yourself a one-month membership for Poptropica!

Be sure to tune in soon, because the Creators will be announcing the winners of the overall Island Hopper Sweepstakes including the winner of the grand prize, a 30 minute call with Poptropica Creator, Jeff Kinney.

Now onto a little segment I like to call the Twitter Roundup!

First off, the (currently unknown) Creator running the Poptropica Twitter account has begun a really cool “series” of tweets, in which they show off Poptropica fan blogs.

The PHB was lucky enough to be the first blog to be shouted out, which is a super big honor!

Even PHB author, Slippery Raptor, got a shoutout for his blog:

Also, apparently Poptropica has moved to a new HQ, while still staying in the city of Boston. The official Twitter has been tweeting out some images from the new headquarters, which you can check out below:

Speaking of Mystery of the Map, you may have noticed that the main trio is pretty racially diverse – according to Kirkus Reviews, Oliver is white, Mya is Asian, and Jorge is Latino. But Oliver and Mya are siblings – how does that work? Well, it turns out they’re half-siblings!

So, that about wraps up this post. Are you excited to see the winners for the overall Island Hopper Sweepstakes? What do you think about the  series? How about the new Poptropica HQ? Comment below.

    Awesome post UIPE, that’s a really nice name and graphic for Twitter Roundup. The creators (well, creator) has really been associating the PHB with a lot of things. I wonder if you guys will have a bigger association in Poptropica than just a license plate this year. 😛

      Thank you (lots of credit to Andrew for helping me out with that graphic)!

      Yeh, I’d love to see some more easter eggs in-game. We all totally freaked at the license plate, would probably freak even more if anything else ended up in the game. 😀

    Oh my gosh- I checked the sneak peaks a few minutes ago and the new sneak peak that came out today was a picture of MONKEYS. WITH WEIRD CLOTHES ON. NOT JOKING. This is kind of reminding me of the Poptropica comic series… Also, the sneak peak with the crashed plane…WAS DELETED. This is getting weird. Looks like something for…

    Theory of the Day (Day 8)
    The Next Island?!?
    Well, I thought this island was going to be based of off Amelia Earhart’s disappearance just two weeks ago, but now my thoughts have totally changed now with the pictures of monkeys. Unlike Pelican Rock, when we at least had some idea what it was going to be about, this island looks SO CRAZY that I don’t know WHAT to think anymore. I’m guessing for an anoncement sometime in February, and a release in March. Anyway, here are my possible guesses about the plot.
    1. Amelia Earhart (you never know)
    2. Poptropica COMICS Island- (remember that monkey island in the way beginning of the series? I hope this doesn’t happen, but it probably won’t because now Oliver and Jorge are being focused on the graphic novel series, not the comics. Or they are making back stories of all the islands they go to in the comics, which would also be weird.)
    3. You-Fly-Planes-And-Land-On-A-Weird-Island-With-Monkeys-Island-( the most likely outcome.)
    Well, it looks like we will have to wait for more info.

What's popping, Poptropicans?
