Guest Blog: Poptropica Merch Review of the Funny Bunny Hat by Spotted Dragon! 🐰🧢

Hey Poptropicans! Today, I’m bringing you a quick review of the Funny Bunny Farmer’s Hat from the official Poptropica Zazzle Store.

 

The cap costs US$14.95 and comes in one style: white/green. Though it comes in one size, there is an adjustable snap strap on the back ranging from 17″ to 24″. The front is made of 100% polyester foam and the back is 100% nylon mesh. It is a trucker style hat, so the mesh back is quite breathable.

The Funny Bunny Carrot Farm comes from 24 Carrot Island and is certainly a recognizable, classic design. Other than this hat, it is also available on a mug. I’m impressed with the quality of the print!

 

The foam front is a bit stiff, but not too bad. And the adjustable strap works well. The brim is strong, yet flexible, and the hat is overall pretty comfortable to wear.

I’ll be excited to wear my new Funny Bunny hat more this summer and see how it holds up against the brutal summer sun.

 

Thanks to the Poptropica Creators for sponsoring this post! They gifted the Poptropica Help Blog a Zazzle gift card so we could share these reviews with you guys. Check out the PHB’s Merchandise Guide for more product info! 💫

 

Stay funny, Poptropicans!

Guest Post: Reappearing Poptropican Deep Dive with Happy Starfish! 🌟🐠👀

 Greetings fellow players! This is Happy Starfish reporting in for another guest blog post. As a veteran of Poptropica for 13 years, there’s been a lot of islands to explore and complete. One of the elements that makes an island unique is its extensive line of different characters. From innocent bystanders to hidden villains, each island has its own set of protagonists and antagonists.

 

That being said, you’ve probably been exploring and completing islands on your own, especially the new island: Fairytale Island. Now Fairytale Island also has an extensive line of characters like the surprisingly docile wolf, the mid-life crisis prince and the rock and roll Cinderella. However there is one character you might not have noticed right away: the boy with the puffy blue sweater and striped hat. Don’t know what I’m talking about? That’s okay! I’ll point it out!

 

When you’re escorting (or rather carrying) Cinderella to the ball (and rock and roll awakening), you pass a carriage wedged in the mud. On top of the carriage is the boy with the puffy blue sweater and striped hat.

 

Recent Appearance of the Poptropican from Fairytale Island

 

Starting to look familiar?

 

Now that you’ve seen him, some of you might be thinking: haven’t I seen him somewhere else? And that answer to that is YES! The mysterious blue boy can also be seen on various islands accompanied by an arcade advertisement.

 

Another Sighting of the Mysterious Blue Boy!

 

With so many appearances, you might be wondering who he is. Is he a mascot for Poptropica? Is he from another island? Does he have a significance? Or is he just another unique and interesting character?

 

Well the answer to all those questions is that the mysterious blue boy is actually from another island. And that island is…..SOS Island!

 

S.O.S. Island

 

SOS Island is one of the original islands Poptropica had before flash expired. It involved a sinking ship, a loyal captain and the concept of your avatar trying to save all remaining passengers before the ship completely submerged into the sea. Mysterious blue boy was one of those passengers. But...he didn’t always look like he did now. In fact, his hat actually had the emblem of I ❤️ 

whales on it and he was wearing a life vest. The whale boy was the first passenger your avatar rescued; he also had an intriguing love for whales to the point that he had a whale caller machine. For some of you, this fact might’ve been a blast from the past and for others it might’ve been a completely new fact!

 

"Save me, whale!"

His adoration for whales and adorable outfit caused him to be an instant favorite in my book. And I guess I’m not the only one! After all, the whale boy has now made numerous appearances on different islands! So, while SOS island is gone for now, the whale boy lives on! And who knows? He might not be the only character from the original islands to appear on Poptropica.

 


 

Poptropicans, please join us in giving a warm round of applause to our friend, Happy Starfish for their amazing guest blog! What a sharp eye! Thank you so much for being a veteran player and sharing your catch with us, we appreciate it!

The Water Fight costume is a laid back surfer look. The boardshorts and matching tank and sunglasses are a cool combo!  Fun sunglasses are IN right now! Of course, the costume wouldn’t be complete without a water cannon.

Water Battle is another outfit curated with water balloon games in mind! The costume includes a lush head of curls, round sunnies, a pink swimsuit, and water blaster. Be ready to take on your friends at any time with your blaster, balloon battles are no joke!
