Wimpy Kid Islands open through the weekend only!

As my buddy Captain Crawfish blogged a couple weeks ago, April is Diary of a Wimpy Kid Month. So we've been celebrating on Poptropica by opening Wimpy Wonderland and Wimpy Boardwalk to everyone! But alas, Wimpy Kid Month is almost over and so is this promotion.

Before the weekend is over, be sure to play the Wimpy Kid Islands. First-time finishers get 300 credits for finishing each island. That's 600 credits total that you can earn. Think of all the cool stuff in the Poptropica Store that you could get!

Plus we're giving away a cool Wimpy Kid shirt for your Poptropican, like I'm modeling in the very bright image above. 

Go play now on Poptropica -- the Wimpy Islands will be members-only again on Monday!

Feats of Speed Game #2 is out for a limited time!

The latest Feats of Speed racing game is now available to play on Poptropica!

Sam's on his treadmill on the Home Island again -- this time wearing maroon. This week's race of agility takes place on Arabian Nights Island. I've heard some Poptropicans say they think it's a little trickier than last week's race, so don't worry if it takes you a few tries to win those maroon sneakers!

And if you missed our first Feats of Speed game, no worries -- it's now on the Poptropica app, so be sure to update your devices! Sam's on the Home Island as usual. Beat the world record and get your sweet purple kicks (the first shoes EVER on the app)!

Remember that these racing games are only available for a week or so. Once they're gone, you can't get those color sneakers again.

Go play on Poptropica or on the Poptropica app now!

Big (no - REALLY BIG) news about Poptropica!

Hello everyone! Today is a big day in the world of Poptropica and we’re really excited to share some news with you: Later this year, we are going to be launching an ALL-NEW Poptropica! We’ve been working on this top-secret project for a while and we’re so excited to be able to tell you about it now!

So what makes the all-new Poptropica so cool?

- New look! The new Poptropica will still be Poptropica, but it’ll be improved. Newer! Shinier! More features, more options, more FUN — on a new app and a new website!

- New avatar! We’re exploring new designs, new movements, and new looks for the Poptropican avatar. Don’t worry, the essential elements that make a Poptropican a Poptropican will still be there! But we’ll change things up a bit — in a really good way.

- New stories! We’ll be bringing you new stories for your Poptropican to experience! And we’re exploring the idea of a unified story that connects all of Poptropica in a way that we’ve never done before. I know that sounds pretty mysterious, but that’s all I can say for now…

- New stuff! Like SHOES! And pets! And so much more!

- New social experience! We’re developing a way for Poptropicans to have a fun and safe social experience within Poptropica. It’s going to be awesome.

There’s so much more to come, but we’re early in the creation process — and that means this is all we can reveal right now. But as we develop the all-new Poptropica, we’ll give you sneak peeks here on the blog and in the Daily Pop on

So stay tuned, Poptropicans, and get psyched for the future of Poptropica. It’s going to be simply Poptastic!

Racing game fix released

Howdy, Poptropicans. We have squashed a bug that temporarily disabled the Feats of Speed mini-game. For those who have beaten the race, please return to the Home Island so that you can keep your sneakers forever. We apologize for the inconvenience. Thanks to everyone for participating!

Play our new Feats of Speed game to earn your first pair of sneakers!

I hope you're feeling speedy today, Poptropicans, because we've got something awesome for you!

Hop on over to the Home Island and look for my friend Speedy Sam, running on a treadmill. He'll challenge you to a race. Beat Sam's world record and your Poptropican will get their very first pair of sneakers - ever! Those sneakers will also give you a pretty sweet special power, but you'll have to win them to find out what it is.

Yup, we're not just giving away these kicks. You have to earn them. What, you think we're just going to hand over the first sneakers we've ever had in Poptropica? I think not! But don't worry, the race is super fun and I'm sure you'll love it!

On your mark, get set, GO race over to Poptropica and play now!

Celebrate Wimpy Kid Month on Poptropica!

Diary of a Wimpy Kid month on Poptropica.
Hard to believe it, but this month marks 9 years since the first Diary of a Wimpy Kid book hit store shelves. That's a long time, and a lot of laughs!

To celebrate Diary of a Wimpy Kid Month, we're opening our two Wimpy Kid Islands -- Wimpy Wonderland and Wimpy Boardwalk -- to everyone! That's right: for the month of April, everyone will be able to play these adventures in their entirety.

That's not all. We're also doubling the number of credits that first-time finishers of these islands receive. That's 600 credits in total!

One last thing. We're also giving away a cool Wimpy Kid shirt for your Poptropican. But it will only be available for a short time!

Celebrate Wimpy Kid Month all month long on Poptropica!
