The year of the monkey!

Today marks the Chinese New Year. We're ready for the Year of the Monkey, because our upcoming island features the help of some of our fabulous simian friends! We're not monkeying around.

You can also visit ancient China on Time Tangled Island, available to play for free both on Poptropica,com and on the Poptropica app. Plus, if you know where there's a misplaced Chinese dragon on another Poptropica Islands, we don't want to hear about it anymore.

Happy Chinese New Year!

Gear up! Game day is coming.

Now that the interminable bye week is finally over, we're getting pumped for the big game next Sunday. Not as pumped as we'd be if the local team were in it, true. But pumped all the same.

If you've got pigskin fever, don't forget the American Football Player costume available in the Poptropica Store. This outfit has four color schemes and includes a helmet, shirt, pants, and handheld football item. It's only 75 credits! Or included with your Poptropica Membership.

Visit Poptropica to get yours. Now, to find some great nacho recipes...

What's the next Poptropica Island?

The question on everyone's lips is: what is the next Poptropica Island?

Well, we're trying something a little bit different this time. We've got over 40 full Islands on the site already. That's great for most players, but some of those Islands -- okay, most of them -- are very complex and challenging!

That's why we're putting our efforts toward a new Island especially for first-time players. It's shorter than most, with simpler objectives. The idea is to let new players understand how to approach the challenges of Poptropica and give them the tools they need to crack some of the tougher Islands, like Escape From Pelican Rock.

If you're already a Poptropica expert, fear not! We think you'll like this Island too. It's got some fantastic art, great gameplay, and hilarious characters. In other words, everything you love about Poptropica!

We'll let you know when this new Island is available. It's coming soon!

From the archives: Cryptids Island

We were looking through some old blog posts today and discovered that it was five years ago this week that Cryptids Island was released for everyone to play.

Since then, Cryptids Island has become one of our most popular. It even spawned an illustrated novel. And one moment in particular has gained infamy as perhaps the scariest moment in Poptropica's history.

A lot of Poptropicans have been with us for years and years, but some of you are knew. We ask: have YOU braved the terrors of Cryptids Island?

If not, the Jersey Devil awaits! Visit Poptropica to play Cryptids Island, and dozens of other free adventures.
