Introducing tribal common rooms!

So you joined a Tribe, and it's awesome. You know in your heart of hearts that your Tribe rules, and the other Tribes drool. But what else can you really do with your Tribe?

Now, you can enter your super-secret, ultra-awesome tribal common room!

Just go to your personality profile page and click on your tribal logo. You'll see a new pop-up with a button that says "Join Room."

That brings you to an all-new common room that's bigger and better than the ones you usually find on Main Street, and which is only open to the members of your Tribe! You'll be able to meet and befriend new tribal pals right away.

Not only that, but each of these new tribal rooms has a bunch of hidden interactive elements. Can you find them?

Visit Poptropica now to check out your new digs!

Annoucing the next Poptropica Island!

Just in time for, uh, Christmas, prepare for the spookiest Poptropica Island yet! Announcing...

Zomberry Island!

One by one, the citizens of Eastman are mutating into something horrible. Now, the city is quarantined, the survivors are trapped, and ghouls prowl the streets. No one knows how the zombie outbreak began... but how it ends is up to you!

Zomberry Island is coming soon to Poptropica. We'll  have a lot more information soon!

Giving thanks!

It's Thanksgiving weekend, and before the Poptropica Creators pack it in for a long weekend of food and fun, we wanted to take a minute to tell the world what we're thankful for. It's a long list. We're thankful for:

And much more. But most of all, we're thankful for YOU!

Poptropica would be nothing without the millions of Poptropicans who log on every month. It would just be a bunch of sad islands full of woebegone characters with nobody to solve their problems, and thousands of clothing items never to be costumized. So thank you for playing Poptropica, and for giving us the chance to create it for you!

Poptropica books: available today!

Today's the day! Four new Poptropica books are now available for your reading pleasure.

In Skullduggery Island, a cruel pirate named Captain Crawfish has been raiding the small port of Fort Ridley. Our hero must embark on a journey to find a powerful ship and skilled crew to help him defeat Captain Crawfish and recover a map that will lead the islanders of Fort Ridley back to their treasure. You can read the first two chapters of Skullduggery Island right now on FunBrain.com!

In Astro-Knights Island, the princess of the Kingdom of Arturus has been kidnapped by an evil inventor named Mordred who has taken her off into space. Our hero now must learn to build his own space craft and travel to the stars on an intergalactic quest to rescue the princess and save the kingdom of Arturus.

In Pencil Warrior, something sinister is erasing its way across Poptropica, and the only way to stop it is by re-drawing all the islands and re-creating the world before this new threat can erase every trace. This 64-page full-color doodle book is perfect for fans of Poptropica and anyone who loves to draw.

Poptropica Mad Libs features 21 hilarious and action-packed stories based on games and missions from the website. Fans of the site will love to bring the adventure to life by filling in the blanks of our brand new Mad Libs!

We hope you enjoy reading these new books as much as we enjoyed writing them -- and you can bet there will be more on the way!
