Behind the scenes of Shrink Ray Island!


Did you know that Shrink Ray Island is a November Island of the Month on Poptropica.com? That means...
  • First-time finishers get 500 credits instead of the usual 300
  • Repeat finishers get a one-time 300 credit bonus instead of the usual 150
  • Captain Crawfish created a new Shrink Ray Island walkthrough to help you if you get stuck
  • And Shrink Ray Island's exclusive members-only items are back in the Poptropica Store for a limited time!
Shrink Ray is such a fun Island and I'm guessing the Creators who designed it had a blast making it. I found some "cutting room floor" art from when the team was developing the Island -- they brainstormed so many great ideas, they just couldn't fit them all in!

Look at these awesome "dust bunnies!"

ATTACK OF THE DUST BUNNIES!!!

And here are two ideas that didn't make it into Shrink Ray, even though they're pretty great:



It's pretty cool to see how the Creators develop Islands, isn't it? I'll keep hunting down lost art and cutting-room floor ideas for you and when I find some, you'll be the first to hear!

Go enjoy Shrink Ray Island on Poptropica.com or on the Poptropica app today!

Check out November's Islands of the Month!


Each month we feature two Poptropica Islands as Islands of the Month. November's IOTM are Shrink Ray Island and Poptropolis Games!

If you haven't finished these Islands, now's the time. First-time finishers earn 500 credits! And if you've already completed these Islands, no worries. You still earn 300 credits the first time you complete one of these Islands again. Wahoo!

My buddy Captain Crawfish made a walkthrough video for each Island to help you along if you get stuck. Check them out:



Even if you've played these Islands, you'll want to watch Captain Crawfish's videos. Trust me. That guy is a hoot.

Go earn those credits now -- play the IOTM on Poptropica! Be sure to build up your credits (and don't forget to spin the wheel on the Home Island every day). Later this month we'll have some super cool stuff in the Poptropica store that you'll want to use those credits on!

The 20 rarest items in Poptropica, part 5

This is it. To celebrate the launch of our 20th Island, Shrink Ray Island, today we conclude our list of the 20 rarest items in Poptropica history.

4. Hypnotic

This dazzling costume was available for a short time by clicking on an otherwise unremarkable window in Early Poptropica.

3. Cryptids Nessie Hat

One of the hardest items to acquire in Poptropica's history was the Nessie Hat during the sneak preview of Cryptids Island. Players could look through a viewfinder on the shores of Loch Ness, and those who spotted Nessie won this item!

2. Wunder Bubble Tonic

Unlike the Loch Ness viewfinder, roping cattle in the Wild West sneak preview wasn't about luck. But it was incredibly difficult, and not many Poptropicans were able to wrangle all of the prizes from that game, including the final prize, Wunder Bubble Tonic.

1. 3rd Birthday Hat

To win the 3rd birthday hat, a Poptropican had to be incredibly lucky. First of all, you had to be in a common room during our 3rd birthday celebration last September. Next, you needed to see a special balloon appear, which most Poptropicans never did. And finally, you had to click on the balloon before you left the room! Those who made it were rewarded with the 3rd birthday hat, the rarest item in the history of Poptropica.

If you missed any of these rare items over the past 20 Poptropica Islands, never fear: there will be a lot more costumes and powers to come from the next 20 Islands -- and beyond!
