Waffles, tasty waffles!

Did you know that today is International Waffle Day? Did you further know that there's a new costume in the store which celebrates it? You do now!

Boys can pick up the square waffle costume, while girls can get the stylish round waffle costume. Both look tasty to me, but it appears that the house pets of Poptropica disapprove.

Head to Poptropica and visit the Poptropica Store to get your waffle costume!

An uncommonly good time

I had a great time making some new friends in the common room on Nabooti Island today!

Common rooms are the place to go to meet other Poptropica players. There's one on the Main Street of every single Island. You can chat, battle, and check out the cool costumes they've come up with. And who knows -- when you visit a common room, maybe you'll even run into one of the Poptropica Creators!

If only there were some way to keep track of my new Poptropican friends, and maybe check in once in awhile to see what they're up to. Oh well. An old pirate can dream, can't he?

Only a few days left until Vampire's Curse Island is open to all!

The headline sort of says it all, doesn't it? Vampire's Curse Island will be available to everyone this Thursday! At last, non-Members will be able to explore the shadowy corners of Count Bram's castle, and seek to end the curse of vampirism.

But don't forget: the Members-only Vampire Count costume is only available until this Thursday!

One week left to get your Vampire Count costume!

Vampire's Curse Island will be open to everyone next Thursday, March 22. But as the Curse giveth, the Curse taketh away -- the Members-only Vampire Count costume will be gone from the Poptropica Store on the same day!

The only way to get the Vampire Count costume is to become a Poptropica Member before next Thursday, then visit the Store to claim your costume. And if you do that, you can play all of Vampire's Curse Island before everyone else! It's win-win.

Happy Pi Day!

Today, 3/14, is also known as "Pi Day," because the famous number Pi starts with the digits 3.14. Pi is important for a lot of reasons, one of which is that it allows you to calculate the area of a circle.

But there's another kind of circular pie we like even more, and that's why we've just released three new costumes to the Poptropica Store. Pick your choice of Cherry Pie, Lemon Meringue Pie, and Mud Pie to show your pride this Pi Day.

Visit Poptropica now to get your pie costumes!

Sit-down comics

Believe it or not, there was a time when the daily newspaper had pages and pages devoted to comic strips. I know what you're thinking: "What's a daily newspaper?"

Used to be that somebody brought a stack of folded papers to your house every day early in the morning, which had all this information about news and sports and things that had already happened, and to read it you had to turn the pages instead of swiping a screen, and -- well, it's not important.

Anyway, we at Poptropica still think that the funny pages are worth your time and attention. That's why, for some time now, we've been publishing some of the very best comic strips in the Daily Pop.

All the best strips are here: Peanuts, Big Nate, Over the Hedge, and many more. They're updated every day!

If you haven't checked out the comics on Poptropica lately, head on over to the Daily Pop for a good chuckle. You won't even get ink stains on your fingers.

Happy birthday, Dr. Seuss!

Today is a very special day. It's the birthday of Dr. Seuss, the writer and illustrator whose imagination inspired millions -- including those of us at Poptropica! In celebration of Dr. Seuss's life and work, why not read your favorite Seuss book today?

Speaking of Seuss: there's still a fantastical new quest available to all on Main Street of Game Show Island, and it won't be up for long. Visit Poptropica to check out it!
