New pop quizzes incoming

We've already got hundreds of pop quizzes available on Poptropica Friends, which we thought would be enough for anyone. But some of you are insatiable! So we're rolling out a brand-new batch of pop quizzes, which will highlight your personality for all of your friends on Poptropica.

Visit Poptropica today to answer pop quizzes, and shine like the brilliant and unique candle you are. Or if that's not enough... maybe there's a new book we could interest you in.

Shirt tales

I really can't get over how much is available in the Poptropica Shop. There are over three dozen different shirts that I can get emblazoned with my dashing mug!

I don't think I even own three dozens shirts as it is. I have ten identical sets of red breeches and overcoats, and that's it. Never much cottoned to fashion before I found out about the Poptropica Shop... but that's about to change.

Let summer begin!

At long last, we're ready to kick off the summertime with a long weekend. And the forecast calls for... 49 degrees and raining? Ugh.

Well, there's one way to catch some rays this weekend, and that's by grabbing the "Burnt Orange Tan Power" from the Poptropica Store. It's just one of many fantastic cards you can pick up to make your Poptropica experience extraordinary. From costumes to items to abilities, everything you could ever want is in the Poptropica Store.

And now, to find my summertime rainboots...

The Captain Crawfish Collection

Have you checked out the Poptropica Shop yet? I'm mulling my first purchase. A hooded sweatshirt can come in handy abovedecks when the nights get cold, and that's the sharpest-looking fashion icon my one good eye has ever seen.

Not that I want people to start copying my style -- costumizing me, if you will, in real life -- but the truth is, there's nothing stopping you from using my username to order a Captain Crawfish shirt of your own. Not if you know my username, anyway...

LEGO CUUSOO -- to 7,500!

The march to 10,000 supporters of our LEGO CUUSOO project continues. As I write this post, we are almost 2/3 of the way there, which is good, but not good enough. We can do better!

Once again, the call goes out: we've got a free item waiting in the wings if we can just make it to 7,500 supporters. That's a little over a thousand additional supporters from where we are as I write this post.

Can you help us get our LEGO CUUSOO project to 10,000 supporters? Remember, you need to be over 13 to vote yourself, but you can always conscript a helpful friend or relative to cast a vote for you. And then everyone will be able to get the free item once we reach 7,500.

Let's get going!

Announcing the next Poptropica Island!

We're thrilled to announce the next great adventure coming to Poptropica.

It's the biggest and best (or maybe smallest and spiffiest?) Poptropica Island ever! To learn more, visit the Virus Hunter Island info page.

Are you a pop quiz whiz?

Have you been keeping up with your pop quizzes lately? No, not the lame ones that your teachers make you take. The fun ones that you can take on Poptropica!

When you log in with your existing Poptropica username, you'll be greeted with a new quiz every day. These questions will get to the very core of who you are. You may end up knowing yourself a little better because of them. Maybe you never thought before today about whether or not you find clowns scary. But looking at those pictures up there, the answer's obvious, isn't it?

So head over to Poptropica and start sharing your unique personality with the world!

A tribute to the moms of Poptropica

Mother's Day is this weekend, and we'd like to take the opportunity to give thanks to one of the hardest-working Poptropica characters around: the beleaguered mom.

On Astro-Knights Island, the queen has no idea that her daughter has run off into outer space with a crazed inventor.

On Shark Tooth Island, this poor mom is separated from her son by the fearsome Booga Shark.

On Shrink Ray Island, C.J.'s mom couldn't possibly imagine that her brilliant daughter is the size of a tiny insect.

On Vampire's Curse Island, Katya's mom always knew that Christopher was no good. But did Katya listen? Of course not.

Of course, some moms have it a little easier. On Wimpy Wonderland, Greg Heffley's mom returns home after the adventure is over, and is none the wiser. Thank goodness for that.

Here's to all the moms in Poptropica, and all the mothers everywhere!

Fan art!


Poptropican "Cool Crown" sent us this lifelike rendering of our own Dr. Hare. I can't even tell which one is the drawing and which one's the plush. The "harey" pun is the icing on the cake.

Thanks, Cool Crown!

Vote and you shall receive


We promised that we'd release a brand-new wallpaper if we reached 6,000 supporters for our LEGO CUUSOO project this weekend -- and reach 6,000 supporters we did.

Much as it pains me to bring a smile to anyone's face, I am a bunny of my word. So here, take a new wallpaper -- and choose between green and blue versions! Blech.

6,000 supporters is nice, but remember, the real goal is 10,000. We're not there yet. We need 10,000 supporters for "Dr. Hare's Lair" on LEGO CUUSOO before it can be considered for production.

If you haven't voted yet -- or gotten someone over 13 to cast a vote for you -- now's the time!

LEGO CUUSOO -- can we reach 6,000 supporters this weekend?

We're on the cusp of another major milestone: 6,000 supporters for our LEGO CUUSOO project, "Dr. Hare's Lair." We're so close, in fact, that we could pass this mark as quickly as this weekend!

Can you do your part to make that happen? Support our LEGO CUUSOO project to help make it a reality. Once we reach 6,000 followers, we'll give away a brand-new Dr. Hare wallpaper!

Yeesh. All this forced positivity is wearing me down. Time to go enslave some unsuspecting citizens.

Logo-a-go-go

By now, you're well familiar with the Back Lot Island logo:

But it took a few tries for us to get to the finished product. With every Island, we try out a lot of different approaches for the logo before deciding on the one we like best. Here's a look at some of the initial treatments for Back Lot Island:

We liked them all, and ultimately settled on a combination of the first few.

What do you think? Did we make the right choice, or do you like some of the other ones better?
