Where was Dr. Hare?

On Tuesday, we showed you a picture of Dr. Hare in front of a kangaroo crossing sign. You probably guessed he was in Australia. But where in Australia?
Dr. Hare was at Bells Beach, in beautiful Victoria. But wait! There's more. Now you can follow Dr. Hare in real time as he travels around the world with our interactive map.


Every time a new photo is added, it'll automatically appear on the map. You can even embed the map on your own blog or website to share with your friends! Just copy and paste this code:
<object align="middle" classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=10,0,0,0" height="366" id="popup" width="488"> <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" /> <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /> <param name="movie" value="http://www.poptropica.com/popups/DrHareTravels/popup.swf" /> <embed src="http://www.poptropica.com/popups/DrHareTravels/popup.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff" width="488" height="366" name="popup" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="always" allowFullScreen="false" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer" /> </object>
(Note that on a WordPress blog, you will need a plugin like Kimli Flash Embed to properly display the map.)

Dr. Hare is always on the move. And you can help, too. Get your own Dr. Hare toy and send him on even more adventures!

New this week in the Poptropica Store

The Poptropica birthday blowout continues, with the return of two long-lost items to the Poptropica Store!


This week, Poptropica Members can pick up the Nessie Hat, which you may remember as one of the most difficult items to find in the history of Poptropica. Only those few people who spotted the Loch Ness Monster in the Cryptids Island viewfinder won this hat. But now through the end of September, all Poptropica Members can get this hat to keep forever.

The other item is the Hypnotize costume, which was once available by clicking on a particular window in Early Poptropica. This time, you don't need to go any further than the Poptropica Store.

These and all of the Poptropica birthday items will only be available until the end of September. That means you've only got 9 days to grab them before they're gone again -- and this time, they may never come back! If you're already a Poptropica Member, visit the Store and get your free items. If you're not yet a Member, find out how to get Poptropica Membership today.

And keep on rocking those 4th birthday balloons!

The hunt is on! (Almost.)

The Poptropica guidebook will be available soon. We're so excited about the publication of our first book that we've decided to ask all of you to help us celebrate!

Counting down the seconds to Mystery Train

If you've been following the Mystery Train countdown clock on the Poptropica homepage, you've probably noticed that it's set to go at a rather unusual time: 21 minutes past the hour. In fact, here at Poptropica headquarters, Mystery Train will be launching at 4:21 PM on Friday. Can you guess why?

Go ahead, try to guess. Take a second away from the computer.

Okay, ready?

The time is in honor of two things. 4, because it's our 4th birthday, and 21, because this is our 21st Island.

Now that you've solved that mystery, you're ready to take a ride on the Mystery Train! Poptropica Members will be able to play all of Mystery Train this Friday. Non-Members will be able to play the first part of the adventure in advance of Mystery Train's public launch in October.

Book It

Look what showed up at our office!


It's a real, actual copy of the official Poptropica guidebook. And it looks great, even in an admittedly shoddy photo! This baby is 190 pages packed with full-color art, Island guides, and behind-the-scenes info straight from the Creators' mouths. It even comes with a fold-out map that you can't get anywhere else!

Poptropica: The Official Guide will be released on October 13, and is available for pre-order from Amazon.com. We'll have more fun details about the book very soon!

Your Mystery Train departure time

Have you got everything packed and ready for your ride on the Mystery Train? You'd better be, because it launches one week from today. We're running a very tight schedule here, which is why if you visit the Poptropica homepage you'll see a countdown timer that will take you to the second that the Island will become available.

What time will Mystery Train be available where you live?
