How to import your Poptropican's look to the Poptropica app


Hello Poptropicans! Lately a whole bunch of you have downloaded the Poptropica app, so we wanted to be sure you knew this: You can import your Poptropican's look from the web into the app!

Have a super sweet superhero costume that took you ages to put together? Or some hipster duds you don't want to lose? Did you create the perfect hair color in A New You that complements your gorgeous dress? Never fear, you can look just as fabulous on the Poptropica app.

Here's what to do:

1. Download the Poptropica app for your iPhone or iPad, your Android device, or your Kindle.

2. Open it up and select New Player.


2. Pick boy or girl.


3. Select your age.


4. A random Poptropican will appear.


5. Tap the Import Look button. Then enter your username and password.


6. Lo and behold, there is your Poptropican! Or in this case, there is Silly Claw.


7. Tap DONE and go play Poptropica! Wahoo!

Check out the Home Island where'll you find the Store (get new costumes and powers), A New You (change up your look again), and the Arcade (play games with other Poptropicans). Then go play one of the 13 Islands on the app and collect those medallions. Have fun!

PS: Waiting for the #MyPoptropicaCostume voting? The Creators are winding up their own voting, and we hope to open voting to you all early next week!

Some Poptropica updates for you...


Hello Poptropicans!

Just a few quick updates for you on this lovely Monday afternoon. I've been seeing some of the same questions being asked on Poptropica's social media, so let's get them answered:

1) We haven't forgotten about the #MyPoptropicaCostume contest. Au contraire, my popping peeps. We are almost done combing through all the entries and hope to open up voting for the runners-up later this week!

2) We're going to close the voting for February's Island of the Month tomorrow, January 24, at midnight ET, instead of later in the week. Captain Crawfish reminded me that he is a very busy pirate and needs time to make the walkthrough for whatever Island you all pick. And honestly, I'm not feeling too good about peeving a pirate, so let's get those votes in ASAP, ok?

Right now Reality TV Island and Super Power Island are neck and neck in the voting -- Reality TV leads 50.54% to 49.46%!

3) We know a lot of you have a bunch of questions about Poptropica Worlds. Soon we'll have an FAQ about Worlds on the blog, which will answer the most-asked questions we've seen.

4) You only have a week left to play January's Islands of the Month on Poptropica.com and earn loads of credits. Earn up to 500 credits for completing Time Tangled Island and up to 1,500 for completing Arabian Nights Island! Get the details in this blog post.

That's all for now, Poptropicans. Hop on over to Poptropica.com to get playing, or play the free Poptropica app on your tablet or phone!

Vote for our February Island of the Month!

Super Power Island? Or Reality TV Island? Decisions, decisions...
As you know, every month Poptropica has two Islands of the Month (this month the IOTM are Time Tangled Island and Arabian Nights Island). IOTM are special because they give CREDITS GALORE!

First-time finishers earn 500 credits, and if you've already completed the IOTM, you still earn 300 credits the first time you complete one of them again.

Plus we put classic members-only IOTM costumes and powers back in the Poptropica Store. Captain Crawfish makes a walkthrough for any IOTM that doesn't have one. And we dig up cool lost art and other special stuff to feature on the blog (see past featured IOTM here).

So knowing that, Poptropicans, we ask you: Which Island should be a February Island of the Month -- Reality TV Island or Super Power Island? We already have one IOTM picked (no, we're not telling yet!) but we want you to pick the other!

Vote in the poll below. Whichever Island has the most votes by midnight ET on Tuesday, January 24, wins! Spread the word!

January's Islands of the Month are...


It's the beginning of a new month, and you know what that means, Poptropicans. Time for our new Islands of the Month! For January 2017 we are featuring...

❄️ Time Tangled Island -- In this classic and popular Poptropica Island, a malfunctioning time machine has messed up history! It's your job to go back in time and set things right. Because if you don't, who knows what the future will hold?


First-time finishers earn 500 credits and repeat finishers earn 300 credits the first time they complete Time Tangled Island again. Think you'll need help completing this Island? No worries, Captain Crawfish has a brand-new walkthrough for it!


❄️ Arabian Nights Island -- This Island was actually conceived by a Poptropica fan, Magic Eagle, otherwise known as Sarah S. She won our Create Your Dream Island contest a few years ago, and we brought her Island idea to life. In Arabian Nights Island you'll journey to an ancient land of sultans, thieves, and a magical lamp with power beyond imagination.


Arabian Nights Island is a three-episode Island and that means you'll get big credits for finishing EACH episode! 1st-time finishers can earn up to 1,500 credits and 1st-repeat finishers can earn up to 900 credits -- wow!

Need some help getting through this Island? Here are the Captain's official walkthroughs for each episode:




Don't wait! Hop on over to Poptropica.com to play these amazing adventures and earn huge amounts of credits to spend in the Poptropica Store!

Behind the scenes: How PoptropiCon's Omegon was created


We hoped you enjoyed playing December's Islands of the Month -- Wimpy Wonderland and PoptropiCon! Due to the holiday weekend these Islands are still officially IOTM through today, 1/2/17, so go enjoy them while you can!

You'll definitely want to finish PoptropiCon's episodes because you'll get big credits for finishing EACH episode! 1st-time finishers can earn up to 1,500 credits and 1st-repeat finishers can earn up to 900 credits. Wow!


As always, yours truly did some digging to find some cool art from both our IOTM (check out these animations from Wimpy Wonderland) -- and you're not going to believe what I found from PoptropiCon's development!

Back in 2013, Poptropica Creators updated Poptropolis Games, and the artists working on the Island designed tribal costumes for it. The costumes were ultimately not used, but one in particular came in handy a year later. Read what happened in one of our Creators' own words (just click on the images to enlarge them)...






This is such a great example of how Poptropica Creators work closely together when developing an Island -- and how really great concepts from the development of one Island can come to life in another Island down the road!

Happy New Year, Poptropicans! We hope you had a nice Winter Break!
