With a little help from my friends...


Some time very soon, you will log into Poptropica and notice that something seems different. Everyone is a little friendlier. Your personality will be a little livelier. And you'll have all sorts of new ways to enjoy your adventures in Poptropica.

That's right, Poptropica Friends is just about here. You won't need to do anything special to start using it. But keep an eye on this blog! We'll let you know the moment it's available.

Trapped in the closet?

We can admit that we're not perfect. One thing Poptropica is missing right now is an easy way to save the best costumes that you've put together. With Poptropica Friends, that will no longer be the case!


Another new feature with Poptropica Friends is the Costume Closet, which allows Members to store up to 30 unique costumes at a time. Not only that, but you can look through your friends' closets and borrow their best costume ideas, as well.

There you have it! The days of putting together a spectacular costume and then having to get rid of it are almost over.

Your number 1 album


One of the new features that will be coming with Poptropica Friends is the photo album. It's like your own virtual scrapbook of your adventures through Poptropica!

By playing through Islands, you'll occasionally see a message that says "New Photo Added" when you get to an important part of the story. Then, when you visit your photo album, you'll see snapshots showing you a new perspective of your character's feats. Every Island has about four different photos. There are over 100 in total!

Even better: every time you earn a new photo, the outfit you were wearing at the time is recorded in the picture. Even if you change clothes, you can costumize from your photos later!

Wait, there's more! If you're looking through a friend's photo album, you can costumize off of them, too. It's like the number of possible costumes just went to infinity!

Seismic activity

You already know that Poptropica Friends will let you stay informed about what your friends are doing in Poptropica. What you might not know is how easy that's going to be!

Presenting the Recent Activity feed! You'll see this little box whenever you return to Poptropica, and it will show you the most up-to-date things your friends have been doing in Poptropica. You'll see when your friend has earned a photo, beaten an Island, saved a new costume, or answered a Pop Quiz. You can click through to see their full profile, or just flip through the feed to see what everyone is up to.

There's a lot more coming with Poptropica Friends. We're looking forward to sharing it with you!

Going for the gold

Playing through an Island on Poptropica gets you many rewards. Besides the satisfaction of a job well done, you'll also earn a gold medallion that you can wear to show off your accomplishment. But how many of you have been able to pull this off?


Medallions for every Island! Whoa, nelly. That's worth bragging about. Soon it'll be easier to show off an achievement like this.

One of the great things about Poptropica Friends is that you'll be able to see what medallions your friends have earned, and they'll be able to see the same for you. You'll even be able to show off how many times you've beaten each Island, by using Island Restart.

Poptropica Friends is launching soon. There's no better time than the present to start adding to your medallion total, before all your friends can see!

We wanted to share this self-portrait we received from Poptropican Super Sky:

Not bad! Next time we might suggest wearing a hot dog costume, though.

Bonus points!

For the past few Islands, we've been including a bonus quest that tells the story after the story. They've all been fun, but they've never been quite like the one on Twisted Thicket.

When you play the Twisted Thicket bonus quest, you'll have access to a trio of special powers: troll strength, dryad wings, and goblin speed. You'll need all of them in order to complete this special, extra, extra-special adventure!

Twisted Thicket will be available to everyone on Wednesday, May 2. But only Members will be able to play the bonus quest -- and only Members can play Twisted Thicket right now!

No need to run from these noses

Well, most of you caught our little April Fools' joke over the weekend. We aren't adding noses to Poptropicans. Everyone would look too weird!

But there was a grain of truth in our gag. Now, you can get a fake nose in the Poptropica Store!

Fortunately, these Poptropican noses are optional, not mandatory. So visit the Poptropica Store today to get your fake nose -- and get a jump on next year's April Fools' Day!

Who nose what's new in Poptropica?

We're excited to announce the most groundbreaking, innovative feature in the history of Poptropica: Noses!

On Monday, we’ll be adding noses to every single character on Poptropica, whether you want one or not. Now, your Poptropican will be better than ever at sniffing out clues, stuffing the competition, and running up the score. Not since the introduction of the Costumizer or the removal of the Monster Carnival map icon have we made an update this momentous.

We hope you’re as excited as we are about this amazing new update. You will always remember April 1st as the day everything changed on Poptropica!
