Are you ready to embark on Amelia’s mini quest?! 👀✈️

Amelia's Mini Quest

 

Stop by Home Island and have a chat with Amelia. Although she may not have gotten around to a formal introduction until now, it’s always better late than never. Amelia is Poptropica royalty, for pop’s sake! Accept her invitation to afternoon tea and take the opportunity to get to know her. She needs your help and you’re the only one she can ask! If it’s this important to Amelia, surely it must be dire...

 

Of course, in return for your help, Amelia has prizes up for grabs! 🎁  Complete her side quest to receive your rewards for saving the day! As an unexpected reward, you’ll also get a never-before-seen look into Amelia’s life. You might be surprised by what you find! 

 

Have you played the newest mini game yet?! What do you think about Amelia’s mission? Without mentioning any spoilers, what was your favorite part? Share your thoughts with other Poptropicans in the comments below 👇👇

✨CLUBHOUSE CRAWL✨ ft. Golden Moon’s Clubhouse! 🌙 🌙🏡

We’re thrilled to invite you to join us on a clubhouse crawl through Poptropica! Take in the sights and find inspiration along the way as we spotlight players’ outstanding clubhouses! 

 

Our first stop is Golden Moon’s cottage! Even upon first look, it’s abundantly clear Golden Moon has put in some serious work to upgrade their clubhouse! 🤩

 

Golden Moon's clubhouse entrance

 

To the right of the bottom floor is an entire kitchen area that has everything you could think of and more! Oven, refrigerator, and loads of desserts? Sign me up! Not to mention, they’re certainly livin’ the dream with that soft serve machine.

 

Golden Moon's clubhouse kitchen

 

Just above the kitchen, your Poptropican can kick their feet up and lounge around in the beanbag zone under the planty-ful shelves. Or, if you prefer more room, the landing just above the beanbags has a cozy fireplace and more than enough space to make yourself at home. Whether you like reading in front of a crackling fire, listening to music, taking pictures, or trying on new costumes, this floor of Golden Moon’s clubhouse is comfy and charming!

Just a hop, skip, and a jump above that floor is Golden Moon’s bedroom. Like the rest of the clubhouse, the bedroom is unicornly decorated with adorable, whimsical accents, plus some cute plushies! Between the fuchsia pink furniture, oversized unicorn plushie, and the hanging lights, it’s perfectly enchanting. Did this house come straight out of a fairytale?! Sweet dreams, indeed!

 

Golden Moon's bedroom

 

(Agnes from Despicable Me would definitely rate this bedroom a 10/10.)

The lower left levels function as an impressive, modern gaming area, complete with an arcade claw machine, fancy aquarium, cat tower, and even a streaming setup! These floors of Golden Moon’s clubhouse are flawlessly organized and decorated to stick to the age-old mantra, “Eat. Sleep. Game. Repeat.”

WOOOOOW! What an AMAZING kickoff to our Clubhouse Crawl across Poptropica! Special shoutout and many thanks to Golden Moon for curating this remarkable space! We’ll be spotlighting plenty of individual clubhouses, so if you’d like to be featured on our blog, get to decorating – yours could be next! BONUS: no submissions necessary to be featured. You never know when someone from the Creators’ Team might pop in and take a look around! 👀🤔

 

Enjoy your weekend, Poptropicans!

It's almost time for Amelia's mini mission! 👀

Amelia's Mini Quest

 

Are you ready for Poptropica’s newest mini quest?! Its release is right around the corner! Last week, we gave you this behind-the-scenes sneak peek into the mini game's concept art:

 

Amelia's photo sketches

 

For those of you who recognized Amelia from last week’s sneak peek, well done! And to the eagle-eyed players that recognized the smiling Poptropican to the right of Amelia, you’ve got a keen eye. But if you don’t remember where you’ve seen her before, you’re definitely not alone. A little mosey down Mainstreet might jog your memory!

 

Home Island statues

 

While this mini quest centers around Amelia, it’s fascinating to catch glimpses into the statues' backstory! I guess we’ll just have to wait and see if this monumental pair make a reappearance.

 

Without giving too much away, you may have to go to freight lengths as a favor to Poptropica’s leading lady. There might even be a twist in there somewhere... As an added bonus, Amelia’s mini mission is another chance for you to win prizes! It’s the perfect opportunity to score some extra credits before the Baron’s pop-up shop docks at Home Island.

 

Stay tuned for more news about the upcoming mini quest’s release and other Poptropica updates! Do you have any guesses as to what Amelia’s assignment will be about? Drop your predictions in the comments below! 👇

Showcasing Pop-ular TikToks! 🎥 🎬

Lately, we’ve been seeing a huge variety of Poptropica tiktoks – we can’t get enough! From nostalgic throwbacks, character redesigns, favorite islands, and so much more, these Poptropitiktokers have made some unquestionably shareworthy videos.

 

Without further ado, sit back, relax, and enjoyyy! 🤩

 

One of the best Poptropica cosplays we’ve seen goes to @gokuostrich for their Dr. Hare impersonation! The cosplay is perfectly executed, complete with the notorious rabbit’s pink ears and body, green utility belt, matching green-tinted shades, and fingerless gloves.

 

@gokuostrich Dr. Hare cosplay

 

Even better, the cosplayer is positioned right next to a Dr. Hare plushie. Is anyone else getting some “don’t talk to me or my son ever again” vibes from this Dr. Hare pair? 

 

@gokuostrich's Dr. Hare cosplay

 

100% HARE FOR THIS. 🐰

 

Next up, TikTok user @basicbutstillvibin continues this Pop parade through her INCREDIBLY RELATABLE clip recreating the trending soundbite, “don’t make me choose between you and her.” In this case, she’s referring to the absolutely impossible decision between working on a midterm or playing Poptropica. Naturally, Poptropica comes out on top.

 

Poptropica: 1. Midterm: 0.

 

@basicbutstillvibin - "don't make me choose between you or her"@basicbutstillvibin - midterm@basicbutstillvibin

 

A throwback from @violetmasque (previously @toothpick_with_eyes) highlights not only the TikToker's videogame inspirations, but also a Pop mini painting! Their goal of converting all of their keyboard’s letters into hand-painted and customized keys sounds like a daunting task, but their “P” key transformation's end result is the Poptropica letter logo and the game’s iconic yellow blimp. It’s an equally satisfying and heartwarming change!

Another Poptropican, @binarybard, puts their creativity front and center by redesigning some of Pop’s most notorious villains! The artist delivers a fresh, new feel to iconic characters like Mademoiselle Moreau, Binary Bard, and Black Widow, by tweaking the villains’ costumes and facial expressions. The TikToker's namesake, Binary Bard, has the most dramatic transformation: 4 bionic limbs, upgraded weapons, a mischievous twinkle in his eye, and a half-jagged smirk.

 

Mademoiselle Moreau Black Widow Redesign

… Looks like bad news for whoever’s on the wrong end of those grabbers.

 

On a villainous note, Poptropica’s official TikTok, @poptropicacreator, highlights some of the alarming problems shared among our wicked antagonists.

 

Evil? Yep. Cunning? You bet. Vengeful? Absolutely.

 

But surprisingly (or unsurprisingly, if you look at it that way), quite a few of Pop's villains have a knack for kidnapping! Dr. Hare, Binary Bard, Rumpelstiltskin, Black Widow, and Myron van Buren have all committed kidnapping at one point or another. Is this a coincidence or a part of darker tendencies?

Also, take a peek at our latest tiktok and watch us turn a clubhouse into a clubhome. Get the full experience and see the transformation from fixer-upper to cottagecore clubhouse while taking in the soothing melodies from Pop’s musical archives.
