The Candy Crazed mini quest is so close, you can almost taste it! 🍭

There’s less than 2 days left until the release of the newest mini game! We’re mid sugar rush and counting down the minutes until Thursday! In the meantime, it’s only fitting that we share another glimpse into the Candy Crazed cast! 👀

 

You’ve already met Gumdrop Pup and Gummy, of course.

Now, are you ready to meet the main characters of Candy Crazed mini quest?!

Presenting…

 

Hansel and Gretel

 

 

Hansel and Gretel! 

 

Congratulations to everyone that guessed Hansel and Gretel as the fairytale inspiration behind the Candy Crazed mini quest!

 

Do you recognize these rascals? If you’re not familiar with the fairytale, here’s a little backstory. It’s a whimsical story about two desserted siblings, Hansel and Gretel, who are captured by an ill-intentioned, cannibalistic witch. Hansel and Gretel are trapped inside the witch’s gingerbread house. They’re no match against their surroundings and are unable to resist the temptations of a delicious, candy palace  – exactly what the witch was hoping for. Can you really blame them though? You probably nougat fairytale, but I won’t spoil the ending if you don’t know what comes next!

 

Don’t forget that the Candy Crazed mini quest will be released this Thursday, May 27th!! Candy Crazed will be available to all players and can be repeated as many times as you like to earn extra credits! 

 

What twists on the classic fairytale do you think Hansel and Gretel will encounter in Poptropica? Let us know in the comments below! 👇

Guest Post: Musical Crusade with Invisible Ring!

As we wait for the old islands to be ported over, we may find ourselves viewing fan art, fan videos, or island walkthroughs of Poptropica to occupy our minds.

 

We all love what Poptropica has to offer. The designs, the stories, the music… It’s easy to find the first 2 in fan art, fan videos, and island walkthroughs, but what about the music?

 

Clubhouse Music Jams

 

Each Poptropica island has its own soundtracks, and I used to revisit Mystery of the Map, Monkey Wrench, and other islands again and again just to hear those sweet sounds! Most of the islands of Poptropica are off of the map until further notice now, but If you’re like me, and you’ve been looking for that music to enjoy again, then look no further. HERE is the link to Jeff Heim’s entire library of Poptropica compositions!

Although this library doesn’t have 100% of all the songs Poptropica ever had, I think it comes pretty close. Nevertheless, I hope this music brightens your mind and spirit as it did for me. In these troubled times, I think we all could use it!

Is this a dream? Can it really be happening?! 

THIS IS NOT A DRILL! I REPEAT - THIS. IS. NOT. A. DRILL.

OG Poptropican and Youtube extraordinaire, Thinknoodles, recently released a walkthrough of the newest addition to Poptropica -- Fairytale Island!!  Please tell us we're not the only ones that are starstruck! 🤩

This video is definitely a sight for sore eyes! Before watching, please prepare yourself for the flood of nostalgia that's coming your way. Seriously, don't say we didn't warn you. Unquestionably, Thinknoodles' walkthrough pulled on our heartstrings with his return to the game, the revival of his original video intro, and affectionate sentiments for both Fairytale Island and Poptropica as a whole. 

Thank you so much, Thinknoodles!! It's been incredible to see your progression as a Youtuber and gamer over the years -- and to think the best is still yet to come! 🥺💙

We’re challenging all Poptropicans to participate in a new Fairytale Fanfic Challenge!

What comes of the new happy endings for Red, Snow, and Cinder?

What friendship blossoms between Little Red Riding Hood and the Seven Dwarves?
