Create Your Dream Island runner-up #10

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:

Symphony Island, submitted by Erika M. of Nebraska!

The pitch: Karl Notune hates music -- and has an evil plan! It's up to you to save the music before it's too late!

Why we liked it: Now that we have music and sound effects on Poptropica, it's a great idea to make a whole Island about music. Erika suggested that players would be able to play many different instruments -- including piano, saxophone, and drums -- and gave us a funny villain in "Karl Notune." This entry rocked!

We asked Erika, whose avatar name is Fast Fire, a few questions. Here are her answers!
Poptropica Creators: How did you come up with the idea for your Island?
Erika: I was brainstorming ideas for the island, and then I realized that I wanted to listen to music. Then it hit me, what about a musical Island?! Plus I always loved instrumental music.
Poptropica Creators: How did you react when you found out you’d won?
Erika: I just couldn't believe myself, I felt like I wanted to scream with happiness and do a backflip.
Poptropica Creators: How long have you been playing Poptropica?
Erika: About 2 years.
Poptropica Creators: Which Island is your favorite?
Erika: I was always fond of Cryptids Island because I liked the creatures.
Poptropica Creators: What 3 things would you want with you on a deserted island?
Erika: My Harry Potter book set, my piano, and a helicopter to fly home.
Thanks for your entry, Erika. You've got perfect pitch!

That does it for all of the winners. Once again, we got so many wonderful entries from Poptropica players -- far more than we had prizes for. Our thanks to everybody who submitted an entry!
