Check out the new app, Adventure Pig!

Hey Poptropicans, big news from some of our StoryArc Media friends (StoryArc is Poptropica's parent company). The free Adventure Pig app is now available to everyone!

Adventure Pig is a fun puzzle game that you might recognize from Funbrain (where you can find a early version of it called Pig Pile).

You tap to remove a growing number of stacked objects — from bales of hay to purple elephants to ice cream sundaes — and land Adventure Pig on the platform in style. One wrong tap, and — SPLAT! — the act ends in the muck!

Pursue pork-fection across 40 levels, starting at the farm and continuing on to a diner, a carnival, and a big city!

I can tell you that I love playing this app and so does everyone I've shown it to!

The free version of Adventure Pig is available in the iTunes and Google Play stores, plus there's a $1.99, no-ads version on iTunes.

Have a pigtastic time playing!

Rare items have hit the Poptropica store!

Have you been to the Poptropica Store in the last 24 hours? It looks a bit different and there are some super cool, rare things in there!

Now that we've debuted our fabulous prize wheel on the Home Island and you can spin every day for oodles of credits, we've improved the Poptropica Store to help you spend, spend, spend those credits on awesome stuff!

Check out our new Bronze Cards. These are rare cards that the Creators are featuring or have brought back for a limited time. You're not going to believe some of the hard-to-find costumes and powers that you'll find right now!

You'll also notice that we've carefully gone through the Gold Cards and Costumes and are featuring certain ones right now. It's easier to find cool things in the Store and create the ultimate outfits for your Poptropican.

Most of these costumes and powers will be in the store for a limited time -- about a month -- so be sure to come back every day, spin the wheel, and pile up those credits. Then grab those rare and special costumes and powers while you can!

Head over to Poptropica now to spin and spend...

A new Poptropica video and an app update!

It's a busy time here in the world of Poptropica! We recently announced our #PoptropicaArt contest (have you entered yet?!) and now we've got some more cool stuff for you.

One of our talented Creators has been working hard on an AMAZING new Poptropica video that we debuted on our YouTube channel yesterday! It introduces viewers to the wonderful, wacky world that is Poptropica -- and it's super fun for longtime fans to watch. Who do you recognize in the video and what Islands are highlighted? Check it out:

Also, the Poptropica app got an update! Bunches of pesky bugs were squashed to make your Poptropica app even more fun.

Be sure to update your app if your device doesn't automatically do that for you. If you don't have the (free) Poptropica app, what are you waiting for? Get it now!

Stay tuned, Poptropicans -- more awesomeness from Poptropica and also StoryArc Media (that's our parent company) coming your way very soon...

Announcing the #PoptropicaArt Contest!

Do you love to create Poptropica art? Then we've got a fun contest for you. Enter and you could win a 6, 3, or 1 month Poptropica membership!

All this summer we'll be looking for Poptropica artwork on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Post your art on one of those channels and use the hashtag #PoptropicaArt so we can find your creation. If you don't have an account on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram, ask an adult to post for you. You have to use the hashtag to enter the contest -- that's required! (Read the full contest rules here.)

We'll keep an eye out for your art, retweet/repost what we can, and feature our very favorite ones here on the blog. After Labor Day, the Poptropica Creators will pick our three favorites pieces of art from all the art featured on this blog, and we'll award those artists Poptropica membership!

Need ideas? Draw your Poptropican or other Poptropicans, Island scenes, or made-up scenes. Go old school and use pencils, markers, and crayons. Get all techy and use your computer or tablet. Anything works -- we love it all!

Go forth and create your #PoptropicaArt, friends. Enter the contest as many times as you'd like! We can't wait to see what you come up with!

PS: Be sure that if you share your artwork (or someone shares it for you) that the social media post is public, or the Poptropica Creators won't be able to see it!

Do you have your Finding Dory prizes yet? I hope so, because now they're a rare find on Poptropica. If you do, don your Hank Hat, carry your Dory coffee pot, and head into the Home Island Common Room. If I catch you in there, I might feature your Poptropican on Poptropica's social media accounts!
