One million strong!

Over a million people have already swam to the bottom of the sea to help raise the Poptropolis Games! This island could be resurfacing any day now -- but only if the tribes of Poptropica can come together to make it happen.

Make sure to hold up your end of the bargain. Head to Poptropica, visit Poptropolis Games on the travel map, and get diving! You could help your tribe win glory for all time when -- if? -- the Poptropolis Games rise again!

Snack Attack!

There's a new game on Poptropica. Try it out, but beware. Getting snacks for a friend has never been so dangerous!

Hint: To find it look for the kid with a red shirt.

Go give it a try on Zomberry Island!

Where's your Island idea?

You thought we were joking when we said the fall would get away from you. Who's joking now?

October is almost over. Then November passes in a jiffy (only 30 days!) and we all know how December goes. But for some reason, we still haven't gotten your entry in the Create Your Dream Island contest!

Grab your official entry from from our friends at Penguin, or in your copy of the Island Creator Kit. One lucky winner will have their Island produced on Poptropica in 2014!

Dig that Poptropolis Games competition

Hundreds of thousands of Poptropicans have braved the depths of the sea to try to win glory for their tribes. Every time you reach the ocean floor and dig, we mark a point for your tribe. The tribe that does the most to dig up the Games will be immortalized on Main Street! Will it be your tribe?

As of right now, the leading tribe in the competition is the Wildfire. But there's still time for that to change. So don't miss out. Visit Poptropica and help dig up the Poptropolis Games!

We need your help to raise the Poptropolis Games!

Deep beneath the waves, something is stirring. But the Poptropolis Games won't return without your help!

Right now, if you visit the travel map, you'll be able to land on a diving platform above the spot where the Poptropolis Games sank. Swim to the bottom and help dig up the games! You can compete as much as you want -- but the sharks might have something to say about it.

You're not only competing for personal glory. Whichever tribe digs the most will be immortalized on Main Street when and if the Poptropolis Games finally do rise again.

To help your tribe dig up the most dirt, just head to Poptropica now to get started. If you're already a member of a tribe, you're good to go. If not, you'll be prompted to join a tribe when you land on the platform.

Good luck!

A monstrously good time

In real life, you usually have to stick with one Halloween costume. In Poptropica, there are tons of creepy costumes for you to enjoy. Above are just three of the seasonal outfits available to you in the Poptropica Store -- and there are more where that came from!

There are two ways to get costumes from the Poptropica Store. You can earn credits by beating Islands and use those to purchase costumes. Or you can become a Member and get unlimited use of everything in the Poptropica Store for as long as your Membership is active.

Either way, you'll look great!

Follow me in merry measure

Hey, you there. That's right -- you. Do you want a one-of-a-kind "Ship Follower" item? Do you want the nano-sized ship from Virus Hunter Island to follow you around everywhere you go? Of course you do. I see you nodding your head.

Well, if that's what you want, you'd better hurry up! The Ship Follower is only available until tomorrow! If you're a Poptropica Member, you can grab it from the vending machine on Main Street of Virus Hunter Island. If you're not a Member, there's still time to get Membership and start enjoying those sweet, sweet rewards.

Either way, Virus Hunter Island is a week into being open for all to play, so why not visit Poptropica now to give it a whirl?

Party's almost over!

Technically, our birthday ended in September. But who wants to leave a good party before the lights are out? That's why we're celebrating Poptropica's 6th birthday through the end of this week.

That means you still have time to get your free 6th birthday balloon in the Poptropica Store. And you still have a chance to find the special "6" balloon in a common room. When you see it, pop it to win a special costume!

The party will end this Friday, October 4. Once again, thanks to everyone who has helped Poptropica make it this far. Here's to many more birthdays!
