It looks like Home Island has been given a nice wintery makeover, with snow on the ground, snow in the air, and warmer attire on the townspeople. Hope you didn’t put too much money into those summer clothes – you’re going to be needing a change to stand this cold! (Nobody better make a Frozen joke. It’s been three years and I’m ready to be done with that by now. Please.)
(Thanks to Pea Sea/PC for the gif, and Slanted Fish for the rest of the pics.)
They’ve also moved the winter/Christmas-themed gold cards and costumes to the front of the list for easier access to those who haven’t purchased these costumes yet. The items aren’t new, although some have been out of the store for a while, so it’s good to have them back!
The gold card items are: Candy Cane-on, Little Candy Cane, Snow Fall, and Winter Blast Flavor PopGum. For costumes, we have the Snowman, Tangled in Lights, Candy Cane, Elf, and Holiday Ball.
In addition, there’s a new ad for LEGO Friends, also on Home Island. Just click it to get the prize – nothing too complicated. You’ll get a Sledgehammer that you can whack into the ground!
Meanwhile on social media, Poptropica’s very own Skinny Moon has found a picture of Shark Boy and even promised “more behind the scenes stuff tomorrow”! Stay tuned for that.
It’s interesting that Shark Boy is being acknowledged, considering The Mysterious Disappearance of Shark Boy that happened a couple years ago.
Unfortunately, I’ve got some sad news for all of you – this is my last post on the Poptropica Help Blog. Fishy and I have decided it’s for the best that this chapter of my life comes to a close.
Historically, I’ve phased in and out of fandoms quickly. This second spurt of my enjoyment of Poptropica was one of the most fun spurts I’ve ever had though. It’s not that I’ve grown up or moved past it or anything like that – my current interests include a show aimed at elementary schoolers, for crying out loud! It’s just that my interest has waned for a little bit. Until then, I’ll enjoy my other fandoms, and I plan to stick around, if you all will have me.
I’ve just started up my own all-ages personal wordpress blog over at ylimegirl.wordpress.com, so feel free to check it out if you so wish. It was fun getting to know so many of you in the community! I’ll cherish this time we got to spend together for the rest of my life.
See you again sometime,
