Create Your Dream Island runner-up #3

We've announced the grand-prize winner of the Create Your Dream Island contest. To read about the winning entry, Arabian Nights Island, click here.

We're also featuring the 10 runners-up, in alphabetical order. Today's runner-up is:

Golden Mustache Island, submitted by Emma T. of New Jersey!

The pitch: On Golden Mustache Island, people look for where the golden mustache is and who took it.

Why we liked it: Emma's idea brought a smile to everyone's face even before they read about the giant mustache monster. This was a unique and wonderful entry, and we absolutely loved it. Truthfully, we weren't sure we could do it justice!

We asked Emma, whose avatar name is Strange Goose, a few questions. Here are her answers!
Poptropica Creators: How did you come up with the idea for your Island?
Emma: I love mustaches and the 70s. I thought it would be more exciting if there was an idol/statue stolen from the mustachians (instead of Poptropicans :)
Poptropica Creators: How did you react when you found out you’d won?
Emma: I was so happy I screamed! 
Poptropica Creators: How long have you been playing Poptropica?
Emma: 5 years, since Kindergarten - I found it on a school approved website - FunBrain.
Poptropica Creators: Which Island is your favorite?
Emma:  Mystery Train. I like the mystery and history about the island.
Poptropica Creators: What 3 things would you want with you on a deserted island?
Emma: Harry Potter (the series of books), computer (for Poptropica), lifetime supply of food
One thing's for sure: none of the Poptropica Creators will ever forget Golden Mustache Island. You stay golden, Emma!
