Island Extras: Mews Foundation & Buy the Book

An eccentric billionaire is promising a big reward to whoever can prove the existence of cryptids — hidden creatures. The hunt is on for Bigfoot, Nessie, and other legendary beasts. But watch out: you’re not the only one in search of these monsters…and your competitors will stop at nothing to find them!

Trivia

  • Cryptids Island is Poptropica’s 16th island. It was released to members on December 20, 2010 and January 18, 2011 for non-members.
  • Common room: Bert’s Bed & Breakfast
  • The island’s plot is centered around hunting legendary creatures – Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, the Chupacabra, and the Jersey Devil. Many players have reported being deathly scared when they first saw the Jersey Devil on Cryptids Island.
  • The house in New Jersey where you sight the Jersey Devil has the number 666 on the front gate (the last 6 is hanging upside-down so it looks like a 9). 666 is considered to be the number of the beast (the devil).
  • Starting from December 2, 2010, players could visit a preview version of Cryptids Island, where they could look through a viewfinder once a day for a chance to spot Nessie. If you saw her, you’d win a special Nessie Hat. Other interesting sights included seeing Balloon BoyCaptain Crawfish’s ship, a carrot, bag of popcorn, all kinds of dogs, toy sailboats, fish jumping out of the water, a seagull, pelican, motorboat, helicopter, etc.
  • Now, if you look through the viewfinder at Loch Ness, you can spot planes, Balloon Boy, and even a fishing boat that matches the one on the docks of Counterfeit Island, called Ribica.
  • An external website for the Mews Foundation (http://mewsfoundation.org) was launched by the Poptropica Creators to promote Cryptids Island.
  • Players visit real-world locations while hunting cryptids: Loch Ness (which is in Scotland), Himalayas, New Jersey, Puerto Rico, and the Pacific Northwest.
  • If you have the Garden Shears, you can click on the untrimmed hedge next to the well-dressed lady in the rich housing estate next to Mews Mansion and trim the hedge however you like. Make something artsy!
  • The yellow jeep at Loch Ness says “Lema” – a reference to former Pop Creator James D. Lema.
  • The fence beside the gate to the Mews Mansion is patterned with a foot motif.
  • The Bigfoot Fanatic costume was released in the Poptropica Store on December 22, 2010.
  • There’s a sound when the Chupacabra escapes from the trap.
  • A book for Cryptids Island was released on April 4, 2013.
  • The name “Harold Mews” is probably derived from the phrase “Herald News”.
