PHB Double Special: Make Fact Monster Great Again!

Hey Poptropicans! This PHB Double Special midweek post comes to you in two small parts – the former is a cool little glitch, and the latter involves two new costumes for everyone. Enjooooy!

Part 1: Bring back the Fact Monster buttons!

(This first part is a guest post by Small Carrot, a Poptropican in our community. UPDATE: Credit for this glitch goes to Keith Sammut’s website.)

Hello Poptropicans, I’m Small Carrot, a common Poptropican you can find on the PHC. I am here to present a fun glitch, and Tall Melon helped me with it. By the way, if you want to add me on Pop, my usernames are rahin6666 and thefreetinycarrot.

Anyway, here’s how you perform this glitch:

  1. Go to Time Tangled Island and obtain the Time Device from the people inside Pendulum’s Lab.
  2. Then, go into the common room on Main Street (the Party Time Tower).
  3. Use the time device in the bottom-left corner and go wherever you want.
  4. Walk around, and you’ll see Fact Monster buttons! If you press on them, they give you some interesting facts.

This is the old version of Time Tangled Island – before it was made into a SUI (sound updated island), there were Fact Monster buttons all over the island to drop some cool educational knowledge about the historical facets of the island. Not sure why Poptropica did away with them in the update, but now you know where to find them again! I hope you liked the glitch! :carrot:


Part 2: U.S. Poptropidential Election 2016!

This next part could probably use a little more Fact Monster, as our two honorary guests aren’t so keen on checking their facts.😉 Please welcome, in honor of the upcoming U.S. presidential election of 2016 and tonight’s final debate, the (not so) beloved candidates…

Donald Trump (user: DonaldTrumpPHB) and Hillary Clinton (user: HillaryClintonPHB)!


…Sorry, couldn’t resist. Yes, their costumes are customizable. Just friend the usernames above! (I know, they aren’t the only options – but they’re the most iconic.)

Also, check out Perfect Sky’s renditions of these characters:

We are of course still taking entries for our Halloween/Fall Costume Contest – and we’re enjoying the spoopiness so far! Be sure to enter (as many times as you’d like!) for your chance to win a Poptropica membership, courtesy of Poptropica!

But hey, who needs these two candidates when we’ve got #MemeKingForPresident? 👑 Now there’s a viable choice – who else would make our Mondays better with a weekly dosage of Poptropica memery?

Share your thoughts in the comments below – just don’t break out into a political fight.😉

Creepy Puppet and other Halloween updates!

Hi Gs,

Another update? With actual content?! This is insane.

Skinny Moon updated us yet again today, this time regarding a new costume. The “Creepy Puppet” costume is now available in the store for 400 credits (pricey!). The costume itself has two versions, one for each gender. I can’t decide which one I like better.


Strangely enough, the costumes actually aren’t the same as the ones in the promo image; instead, they have white skin and in classic they don’t have eye shadow/mascara. You will need to adjust your own character’s skin color to pure white so it matches the jaw of the puppet.

In other news, the Ship Wheel on Home Island has been updated with a Halloween aesthetic — and a new portal to the Haunted House mini quest has been opened next to the Arcade. Nothing new in the quest, however.

I’m excited to see what is unveiled next for Halloween this year (as she promises there’s more at the end of her post). Fingers crossed, substantial updates on New Poptropica. 

See you next time, Poptropicans.

Popspiracy: Munch on the New 24 Carrot!

(Hey Poptropicans! This Popspiracy theory about a remade 24 Carrot Island is a guest post by Shaky Skunk, who regularly blogs on her site, Poptropica Skunk Blog. Check it out, and enjoy! – 🐠)


Wait – hold the phone… 24 Carrot Island is going to be remade for New Poptropica?! I’ve got compelling evidence to think so. Who knows, maybe other islands could also get remade! 😀

Our first piece of evidence is this sneak peek that was released on the Daily Pop a while back:

Hay There: This one is a real barnstormer.

Hay There: This one is a real barnstormer.

Take a look at the setting of this image. The skies are brown and it’s located inside a barn, just like the one on 24 Carrot Islandthe barn we can’t enter in the current version. The text on the barrel and crate have incomplete lettering on them – enough to speculate that it reads “Funny Bunny”, which is the name of the farm according to the sign there. Additionally, the man in the picture is wearing a hat with two pink rabbit ears.

Just the day before, there was another sneak peek – that of a homeless man. There is a bit of a similarity between the new design and this character from the current 24 Carrot – could the new guy be a remake of him?


Plus, remember those rat sneak peeks on the Daily Pop we all complained about? And how there’s a rat inside the factory on 24 Carrot? The newer rat might just be that critter.

Our final piece of evidence is a minor detail I found at the top of the monster worm picture from the recent New Poptropica sneak peek. Oddly enough, they’ve removed the pic from the official Creators’ Blog post, but you can still see it below. Among the file names up top, there are four that sound like they could belong on a new 24 Carrot Island – “”, “”, “”, and “”.

If you don’t remember Crazy Comet, he’s one of the four children that got kidnapped by Dr. Hare to become one of the drones working in the factory. As for the Cook character(s), they may be workers in the Carrot King Diner.


What do you think? Could the worm be related to 24 Carrot Island, and steal/protect the carrots? Who knows… I’m just sad that the first island wasn’t something like Early Poptropica, but you never know.

New Poptropica – Monster Worm!

Hi Gs,

Finally, some new content! Earlier today, Skinny Moon gave us an inside peek into the New Poptropica that we’ve been promised — the development of a “monster worm” creature that will apparently appear in an upcoming island.


The bulk of the post, which you can read here, was written by Jon Pitcher, a veteran artist for Poptropica. He gives a step by step development process for creating the creature. This includes a developmental sketch, vector illustration, coloring, and animating. The process is impressive, as is the final product. Here’s a summary look at the process:


Some notes:

  • Jon reveals that this creature has an earthy, dirt-covered home. What this could mean? Am I the only one to think of Crisis Caverns?
  • The art style is definitely different from regular Poptropica. It startles me that this is just a worm, considering the level of detail that went into it.
  • The FPS of the animation seems dramatically increased. Will this be a constant in New Poptropica?
  • The vector illustration is made with Adobe Illustrator – perhaps the rest of Poptropica’s graphics use this tool as well?
  • One of the programs he’s using is called “Spine”, a 2D skeletal animations tool. What does this mean for the Unity theory?

Equally intriguing is what seems to be verification that New Poptropica is still on track to be released later this year (how much later remains a mystery). See you next time, Poptropicans.

My Place in Poptropica: White Ice

This is the My Place in Poptropica story of White Ice, a Poptropican who played on-and-off with another game, Fantage, but ultimately chooses Poptropica. See below for details on sending in your own MPIP!

mpip wi

Hey guys! I’m White Ice, and my username is maryamkamal2197. I’m fairly new to the Poptropica community, and to blogging as well. Just to clarify, I’m not the White Ice that runs a Poptropica fashion blog, though I used to run the People of Poptropica blog along with Lucky Joker, and you can find me on Instagram at Skyestique. Here’s my Poptropica story!

2009 | The Beginning

I didn’t discover Poptropica through Funbrain, unlike many people. I actually discovered Funbrain later, through Poptropica!

During 2009, I was living in the Philippines for a short while, and during one of my mom’s classes (I used to come with her to them), there was a girl who came with her parents, and she introduced me to Poptropica. Back then, I was only about age 5 or so, so I don’t remember much about what Poptropica was like back then. But after she introduced me to it, I was hooked.

I didn’t know what walkthroughs were, so sometimes I would get stuck on an island for months. I don’t remember if White Ice was the account that was my first, but I do remember that it’s at least 4 years old. I regret making my username what it is, because it is kind of personal, but I was young, and didn’t know any better.😛

2010-2012 | Another Game

I soon discovered another online game called Fantage, which caused me to play Poptropica a lot less. My cousin introduced me to it to me midway through 2010. Fantage is a rubbish game now, but back then, it was quite addicting for a kid. To me at the time, Fantage was much better than Poptropica, because you could chat with other players, and in Poptropica you couldn’t.

I would still check on my Poptropica account occasionally, but it wasn’t until my Fantage account was hacked during 2012 that I was fully pushed back to Poptropica.

2012-2013 | Active yet again

These two years were probably the most active years I had on Poptropica, but I don’t get how I never discovered the Poptropica community! During this time, I was obsessed with completing islands. I discovered walkthroughs, but because some written walkthroughs missed details sometimes, I also used Thinknoodles’ walkthroughs. I completed all of the islands that were out back then. I never got membership, because my mom thought spending money on games was a waste.

I didn’t have a chance to introduce my friends to Poptropica, because most of them were Chinese and they weren’t really interested in playing English games. (I live in Hong Kong, and yes, it’s the same city Slanted Fish is from! By the way, Hong Kong is in China, but is considered a special administrative region.) Anyway, some of my friends actually knew Poptropica, because some younger kids would play it in the computer room during recess, but they themselves didn’t play it.

2014-2015 | Growing old

And then life got in the way…

During 2014 and 2015, I started to play Poptropica less and less, because at that time, I got an Instagram account, I became a Potterhead (Harry Potter fan), and I started to read more mature books than the Wimpy Kid and Geronimo Stilton I had been reading before. This led to me becoming a fangirl and joining Instagram fandoms. I even started playing Fantage again, because my cousin managed to get my account back. So basically I just grew up a little. And when I got my first phone, I didn’t touch Poptropica at all.

2015 – present | In Full Swing

It’s funny how many breaks there are in my Poptropica story. I guess that’s because I’m a strange kid who has strange tastes.

During the latter half of 2015, I checked on my Poptropica account sometimes, and completed the newer SUI islands that came out during my 2014-2015 inactiveness. My return to Poptropica was probably due to finally quitting fantage, and to ignore the sadness I felt for splitting ways with my primary school friends. I discovered the PHB, and checked on it pretty often, but I never commented, and I didn’t explore enough to find the PHC yet.

On the 15th of June, 2016, I finally got my chance to get more involved. I was bored and decided to check out the PHB, when I saw the post announcing the Summer Kickoff Party. I thought, Hey, it would be pretty cool to finally actually talk to other Poptropicans!

At 12am on 21st June, I set multiple alarms for 6am on my phone, and put it right beside my head. And guess what? I didn’t wake up. In fact, I was about an hour late, and the party was already in full swing.

The summer kickoff party was an amazing first Poptropica community experience for me. That day, I met Lucky Joker, Red Thunder, and Zany Panda, who, including me, were the last people who stayed on after the party ended. Lucky Joker then had the idea to start a blog together. Thus, the People of Poptropica blog was born. (Unfortunately, it was hacked a couple of months ago, but has since been revived.)

I just joined the Poptropica community not too long ago, and I don’t plan on leaving anytime soon. Well, maybe I will, if the New Pop is disappointing. But probably not. I love Discord (where the PHC is) and blogging too much.😀 It’s become my daily routine already. Get up, turn on my laptop and go on Discord. If I’m ever famous, it’ll probably be because I’m on Discord way too much! :’D

I have no idea how to close this up, but thanks, fellow poptropicans and POP bloggers. And thank you, for reading my Poptropican story.

Hope you enjoyed this “My Place in Poptropica” story! Feel free to send in your own (please include a minimum of 550 words, type with good spelling and grammar, divide it into labeled sections, and include your username). Look out for more community MPIPs in the future!

October Occasions: IOTM, Skinny Moon’s Birthday, & PHB Contest!

Hey everyone! Spotted Dragon here again (I know, it’s like once in a blue moon these days) and it’s October, so you know what that means…


Well, yes it does mean it’s time to binge watch Over the Garden Wall, but that’s not the point of this post. The point is that it’s a new month and that means a new Island of the Month! And that island is…


Monster Carnival! And for this spoopy time of year, I’d say Monster Carnival is a perfect choice. Remember that since this island is currently featured, it gets special advantages!😀

  • First-time finishers get 500 credits instead of the usual 300
  • Repeat finishers get a one-time 300 credit bonus instead of the usual 150
  • There’s a brand-new walkthrough (by the Creators) for Monster Carnival to help you if need be
  • Some cool IOTM lost art and/or throwbacks will be posted throughout the month on the Creators’ Blog and social media
  • The IOTM’s exclusive members-only items are back in the Poptropica Store for a limited time (including the Ringmaster costume which was previously only available during early access)

Of course, we did already figure out the Islands of the Month – the other is Mythology Island – the Creators just finally got around to blogging about it (and mentioning the upcoming lost art!).

If you are interested in any of these, head over to Monster Carnival Island right away! I’m very excited to see all this “lost art,” aren’t you?  However, that’s not all that’s special about this month…

It’s also Skinny Moon’s birthday today! Yep, October 13th to be exact, so be sure to wish her a happy birthday. From all of us here on the PHB, happy birthday, Jessica! We all love and appreciate you very much, so we hope you had an amazing day.😉

I’ve also been told to share this video with the lucky birthday girl… (very funny ylime)😛

Other than these cool celebrations, remember that Poptropica is celebrating Halloween in other cool ways. Plus, be sure to enter in the PHB’s very own Halloween/Fall Costume Contest!

It’s our 8th annual this year, and it’s very special this time around because… the Poptropica Creators are sponsoring us by giving a one-month membership to each of the 10 winners (in addition to the prize of being featured on the PHB)!

Now you have to enter, right? Just do it!


Anyway, stay spoopy Poptropicans! >:)
