Where in the world is Dr. Hare?

It's Halloween, and while most people are thinking about treats, Dr. Hare is thinking about how to trick the world into submitting to his fuzzy-fisted rule. Here is, once again in a new city.

Where do you think he is this time?

What's in the freight car?

Eagle-eyed Poptropicans may have noticed some familiar items in the freight car on Mystery Train. It seems that the World's Fair organizers brought along a lot of items from other Poptropica Islands!

Can you look at this picture of the freight car and guess which Islands the numbered objects came from?

Click the image to see the full-sized version.

We'll give you the weekend to puzzle over it. Then we'll post the answers next week.

In the meantime, if you haven't had a chance to take a ride on the Mystery Train yet, visit Poptropica now to play! Mystery Train is open to all.

Money Ladder: Meet the experts

Very few players can make it to the top of the Money Ladder without help. That's why Poptropica Members can call on three experts for help while playing the game.

The Starlet is most knowledgeable about pop culture: music, movies, and the world of Poptropica.

The Professor is the one to ask about factual subjects like history and language.

The Athlete, of course, knows the most about sports.

Each one has a specialty, so make sure you choose the right expert for the job. Choose the wrong expert for the topic, and they're likely to get it wrong.

With the help of the experts, maybe you too can make it to the top of the Money Ladder!

Great Pumpkin restart!

It's Halloween season, and that means it's the perfect time to replay Great Pumpkin Island. But say you've already played through Great Pumpkin Island once. You could always create a new Poptropican to play it again. Or, you could use the Island Restart feature to play it with your current Poptropican! Here's how to do it.

First, go to your travelmap and visit Great Pumpkin Island.

Next, open the Great Pumpkin Island map.

Click on the "Restart Island" button.

Confirm that you want to restart. All of your quest items will be removed from your inventory.

Abracadabra! You're back on Main Street, in the daytime, ready to start the quest all over again.

Don't worry, you don't lose your Island Medallion. Your stats page will even keep track of how many times you've completed each Island, so you can go back again and again.

Island Restart works with any Poptropica Island. Happy restarting!
