This is the My Place in Poptropica story of Quiet Hero (Chloe), who saw classmates play Pop and made a good friend by helping him out. See the bottom of this post for details on sending in your own MPIP!
2010 | Introduction
I was in second grade when, during free time, I saw a few boys playing this cool-looking game called Poptropica so I went home and searched it up. After that, I was hooked. Since this was so long ago, I honestly forget a lot of what I did but I remember that the first island I played was Spy Island which I loved. I also played Counterfeit Island, as that was the one the boys had been playing.
Before long, I had completed all fourteen or so islands, and every time a new one came out, I completed that too. I remember spending months on Skullduggery Island, trying to figure out the trading! I also remember struggling to complete the ‘hard’ mini games on Astro-Knights and rage-quitting multiple times, haha. I remember wanting to smack Betty Jetty after trying to defeat her dozens of times!
2011 – 2012 | Still Loving It, and Helping a Friend
I remained active with Poptropica for a few years, being so excited every time a new island came out. My favourites were Mystery Train and Cryptids. My avatar had this Gamer Girl costume which I loved so much for some reason. Poptropica was this place I could go when I was feeling sad and it was so much fun finding all the interesting plots and funny characters. Around this time, I also started playing a lot of other multiplayer games such as Club Penguin, Panfu, and Animal Jam.
I remember this boy with learning difficulties in my fourth grade class who got to play Poptropica instead of do the work sometimes (lucky!), and one time during lunch he was stuck on Astro-Knights Island so I told him that you had to move the hay bales and use the rat on the owl, etc. During class he would ask me to help him, and I was allowed to, since I usually finished the work early, then played Poptropica with this kid. He became a pretty good friend of mine until I left the school at the end of fourth grade.
2013 – 2015 | Not Playing as Much
I started to stop playing Poptropica as frequently since I grew out of it a bit and started to focus more on school and other priorities. Every now and then I would play through a few of my favourite islands as a new player without a login (I had forgotten my old account’s password!) just for the fun of it. But in this time, it wasn’t really a big part of my life anymore.
2016 – present | Making a New Account
My old account was loooong forgotten, but a few months ago I decided to make a new one and have some fun playing around with the islands. I rediscovered the PHB, which I used to read all the time for island guides, funny facts and cool things about Poptropica. I now read it regularly and am about half of the way through completing all of the islands (still can’t get past Betty Jetty lol).
I love Poptropica and how it appeals for all ages and it’s a really fun thing to do in my spare time. On another note, as you can see, my outfit now is a cross between the princess and the ninja which I totally love! To me it represents a cross between girly and strong. My username is calantharose if you would like to add me. Anyway, hope you enjoyed my story!
