The 20 rarest items in Poptropica, part 5

The 20 rarest items in Poptropica, part 5

This is it. To celebrate the launch of our 20th Island, Shrink Ray Island, today we conclude our list of the 20 rarest items in Poptropica history. 4. Hypnotic This dazzling costume was available for a short time by clicking on an otherwise unremarkable window in Early Poptropica. 3. Cryptids Nessie Hat One of the hardest items to acquire in Poptropica's history was the Nessie Hat during the sneak preview of Cryptids Island. Players could look through a viewfinder on the shores of Loch Ness, and those who spotted Nessie won this item! 2. Wunder Bubble Tonic Unlike the Loch Ness viewfinder, roping cattle in the Wild West sneak preview wasn't about luck. But it was incredibly difficult, and not many Poptropicans were able to wrangle all of the prizes from that game, including the final prize, Wunder Bubble Tonic. 1. 3rd Birthday Hat To win the 3rd birthday hat, a Poptropican had to be incredibly lucky. First of all, you had to be in a common room during our 3rd birthd

The 20 rarest items in Poptropica, part 4

We're continuing our countdown of the 20 rarest items in Poptropica. 8. Woodstock Follower This special item was available to Poptropica Members during the launch of Great Pumpkin Island. Snoopy's pal, Woodstock, will follow you around anywhere you go! 7. Robin Hood Limited Edition You can still find the standard-issue Robin Hood costume in the Poptropica store, but this limited edition was available for only a short time back in 2009. 6. Renegade Robot Limited Edition Like the limited edition Robin Hood costume, the Renegade Robot was available in the Poptropica Store for one short week back in August of 2009. 5. Light Ninja The most sought-after costume from those heady days of summer 2009, the Light Ninja lives on in the hearts and minds of Poptropicans everywhere. Tomorrow: the 4 rarest Poptropica items!

The 20 rarest items in Poptropica, part 3

We're continuing our countdown of the 20 rarest Poptropica items. 12. Mech Pilot For a limited time, Poptropica Members were given this Mech Pilot costume. Anyone can freely costume similar costume parts on Poptropica, but this specific costume is a rare one indeed. 11. Skullduggery Pirate The Skullduggery Pirate was part of a special two-pack given to Members shortly before the debut of Skullduggery Island. Be on the lookout for two more Skullduggery-themed costumes, Captain Crimson and Captain Cobalt, when you get the Skullduggery Island 3" figures . Speaking of Skullduggery Island... 10. Skullduggery Medallion Another challenging Island, Skullduggery has seen fewer completions than most of the other Poptropica adventures. It's not too hard, though -- just keep working your way clockwise from one trading post to the next, and in no time you'll have enough doubloons to buy the Phoenix Warbird! 9. Paper Kid To celebrate the release of our Diary of a Wimpy K

Dr. Hare's impostor revealed!

Dr. Hare's impostor revealed!

At last, I have discovered the identity of the counterfeit Dr. Hare. Unfortunately, the truth is worse than I had feared. Anyone who gets the Dr. Hare 6" figure will also receive a secret code that will allow them to costumize Dr. Hare for the first time ever. That means that anyone could be disguised as Dr. Hare! There will be Dr. Hares all over Poptropica! Oh, this won't do. This won't do at all . DR. HARE

To celebrate the launch of our 20th Island, Shrink Ray Island, we're counting down the 20 rarest items in Poptropica history. 16. Astro-Knights Medallion Astro-Knights is one of the toughest Islands we've made, so it's no surprise that not many Poptropicans have this medallion in their inventory. But it's not out of reach! All you need is a little perseverance. 15. Goofy Glasses Another treasure hunt item, the goofy glasses were briefly available in the sewers of Super Power Island. But if you missed out then, you can still get them in the eyeglasses shop on Spy Island! 14. Wild West Hero All Poptropica Members who played the cattle-rustlin' preview game for Wild West Island were granted this exclusive Wild West Hero outfit. But this wasn't even the most rare item from that game! 13. Sunglasses The sunglasses were briefly available on top of Pendulum's lab on Time Tangled Island. The dark glasses will return, however! Players who get the Spy Isla

The 20 rarest items in Poptropica

Good news, everyone: Shrink Ray Island launches on June 30! It's hard to believe, but Shrink Ray Island will be the 20th Poptropica Island.

To celebrate our 20th Island, we'll be counting down the 20 rarest items in Poptropica. How many of these rare items do you have in your inventory? 20. Brain Hat The cell phone on Nabooti Island holds many secrets. If you dial 411 and then make a call, you'll find yourself with all the information you could ever need! 19. Viking Suit The Viking Suit is tucked away in the upper righthand corner of the Viking time period on Time Tangled Island. It's not necessary to complete the quest, so some Poptropicans missed it. To get the Viking Suit, equip the glider from Leonardo's workshop, and then glide from the Viking mountain until
