The 20 rarest items in Poptropica: The complete list

It's hard to believe, but Shrink Ray Island will be the 20th Poptropica Island. That's a lot of adventures -- lots of characters to meet, foes to battle, and items to collect.

In the time since we introduced Early Poptropica, some items have been harder to find than others. 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 you land on the ledge with the suit.

18. Multiverse

It's the priciest item in the Poptropica Store, but the most versatile. With the Multiverse, you can create your own room and invite your real-life friends to chat and battle.

17. Nabooti Mask

To celebrate the launch of Nabooti Island, we hid this mask somewhere on Spy Island for a short period of time. This isn't the only treasure hunt item that will show up on this countdown!

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 Island 3" action figures will receive a code that will allow them to wear a Spy Agent costume that includes these killer shades.

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 Kid-themed Island, Wimpy Wonderland, all Poptropica Members got the "Paper Kid" costume. Unlike most costume cards, this one doubled as a special power. You can paperize anyone else you see, too!

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.

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 birthday celebration last September. Next, you needed to see a special balloon appear, which most Poptropicans never did. And finally, you had to click on the balloon before you left the room! Those who made it were rewarded with the 3rd birthday hat, the rarest item in the history of Poptropica.

If you missed any of these rare items over the past 20 Poptropica Islands, never fear: there will be a lot more costumes and powers to come from the next 20 Islands -- and beyond!
