Set sail on the Membership

Red Dragon Island is still open to Poptropica Members only. Remember, not only do Poptropica Members get Early Access to new Islands, they also get benefits and extras that no one else does.

Members only can get the exclusive Midnight Red Ninja costume in the Poptropica Store.

And only Members can advance to the upper levels of the "Prepare For Impact" sumo wrestling game, eventually achieving the rank of Yokozuna!

(The costume is cool, but wait until you try out the Yokozuna's "Sumo Stomp" power!)

Find out how to become a Member today so you can play Red Dragon Island this weekend, and get access to all of the incredible costumes, powers, and special surprises for Members. There's a lot more in store. Don't miss out!

Hold it right there!

Have you ever wished you could freeze the action in Poptropica, so that you could read a line of dialogue, or look a little longer at a cool graphic? Well, you're in luck!

We've added a pause button to the upper-lefthand corner of your Poptropica game screen that lets you stop and resume your game at any time by clicking on it. For even faster pausing, you can use the F8 button on your keyboard.

Happy pausing!

A special message from the Binary Bard

My fellow Poptropicans, recently you selected me as your favorite Poptropica villain. This is a great honor, and with it comes great responsibility. I shall not let you down. As your choice for the best Poptropica villain, I make these unbreakable, evil promises to you:
  • I shall require every Poptropican to set a picture of me as their desktop
  • I shall outlaw birthday parties, puppy dogs, and summer vacation
  • I shall replace your sugary sodas with unsweetened iced tea
  • I shall institute a mandatory 8 PM bedtime for all, even when American Idol is on
  • I shall enslave every citizen of every planet in the galaxy and crush them under my iron yoke
Bow! Bow before the Binary Bard, my subjects! Bwahahahaha!

Dr. Hare returns to 24 Carrot Island!

Bad news gets worse for the mayor of 24 Carrot Island.

Wait a minute, I don't remember this picture being taken. That's not the real Dr. Hare at all. It's an impostor!

What's going on here?

Featured costumes: The Prom King and Queen

It's prom season once again, and that's why the featured costumes in the Poptropica Store are the Prom King and Prom Queen costumes.

The Prom King comes iwth a special action that you can activate by pressing the space bar, and the Prom Queen has five different color options to choose from.

And remember, you can costumize all or part of these costumes to create your own unique look. You might even invent a costume that no one in Poptropica has ever worn before!

Poptropica Tips and Tricks: Mastering your ninja powers

In the course of playing through Red Dragon Island on Poptropica, your ninja training will teach you a few things. Like how to wall jump.

And how to throw a throwing star.

But a true ninja master will figure out that these moves can be combined.

Throwing stars (and smoke bombs, for that matter) from your perch high up on a wall can be the difference between success and failure when you infiltrate the samurai fortress. Use your skills wisely!

Watch the trailer for Red Dragon Island!

If you haven't yet had a chance to see the trailer for Red Dragon Island, here it is!

Red Dragon Island is available now for Poptropica Members! Find out how to become a Member.

Also, some of our Members who have already completed Red Dragon Island noticed that they were unable to return to Japan after the quest was finished. This is no longer the case! You can now head back to Japan as much as you'd like, and keep wowing the locals with your ninja skills.

Celebrating a tasty Island

After the launch of Red Dragon Island, which takes place mostly in old Japan, some of the Poptropica creators decided to celebrate with a Japanese lunch -- sushi!

Mmm-mmm! So delicious, you'd never guess that it was made out of raw fish.

No, not "Crawfish." Raw fish. Nobody noms Captain Crawfish!

Dr. Hare for best villain!

Greetings, Poptropicans. Dr. Hare here.

From the deepest reaches of outer space, I am writing to correct a grave injustice currently being perpetrated on the Poptropica Creators' Blog. My minions have informed me that I am losing my matchup against Zeus. This must not stand!

I get it. If Zeus and I were to literally fight one another, yes, even I admit that it would not be a fair fight. His lightning bolts would zap my big pink ears clean off. Sure.

But that's not how you should be choosing. I ask you, which villain is more cunning? Whose evil schemes are more elaborate? Who has the better outfit? Dr. Hare, Dr. Hare, Dr. Hare!

As Poptropica's first super villain, and still the best, I am giving all Poptropicans one last chance to correct this grave mistake before voting closes tomorrow -- or else!
