Oh, the Leg Bone’s Connected to the Hip Bone…

…And that’s the only part of that song that I know.  …I don’t even know if I got that part right…  Oh, well.

There’s a new costume/power available just in time for Halloween in the Poptropica Store!  Get ready to start singing “the leg bone’s connected to the hip bone” with me when you wear the Skeleton Power.

As you can see from the picture above, there are two buttons that you can press.  The first one is the “I’m A Skeleton” button.  If you press that, you turn into a skeleton.  I know, surprising, right?

A skeleton with eyelashes… Somehow that doesn’t fit.

The second button is the “I See Skeletons” button.  That one will turn everyone around you into a skeleton.

There’s only one problem…  I couldn’t find a way to undo the “I’m A Skeleton” part, so I clicked on the customize button and clicked on my skull and skeleton body-suit thing, and this is what I was left with…

Uh… Where’s my hair?

Before I leave to fix this costume crisis that I have on my hands, I just wanted to let you know about a small little change in the Poptropica Store.  All the Halloween-related costumes have been moved to the front of the store.  So, instead of seeing a baby costume as the first thing in the line of costumes, you’ll see something like the Bride of Frankenstein or the Swamp Monster costumes toward the front, instead.  It’s probably only temporary for Halloween, though.

Well, I’m off to go see if I can find my hair.  I hope you have more luck with the Skeleton Power than I did!



Say Goodbye to the Zaggy Moondust Costume…

…in one week, that is.

Lunar Colony comes out for non-members on September 6 (next Thursday).  With its arrival, the limited-time, Members-only Zaggy Moondust costume will leave the Poptropica Store.

So, if you want this costume, don’t forget to get it before Lunar Colony comes out for non-members!

…Although…there’s nothing really amazing about this costume…in fact, I don’t think it’s really even slightly good.  Sorry if anybody out there likes it.  That’s just my opinion.  Don’t get Membership for this costume, you guys.  Believe me, it’s not worth it.

The Heat’s Getting Hotter

As you probably know, one of the Members-only bonus items for Wimpy Wonderland is the Heat Wave power.

When you use the Heat Wave Power, it makes you and the other Poptropicans around you get all sweaty.  It also makes your screen flash red.  I know, useful power.  Not.

Anyway, you can use the “Wimpy” part of Wimpy Boardwalk to describe the Creators.  They can’t stand a little heat without whining like a bunch of babies.

Heat wave!

Whew! I don’t know how it is where you are, but it’s incredibly hot outside of Poptropica HQ!

It might be our fault. Just yesterday we released the new Member-exclusive items for Wimpy Boardwalk in the Poptropica store, which included the sizzling Heat Wave power. Today, bam! Sweltering weather outside.

We hope you’re staying cool on the first full day of summer, unless you live in the southern hemisphere, in which case we hope you’re staying warm on the first full day of winter. Either way, we’ll have some hot news about Wimpy Boardwalk for you very soon!

See?  Such big whiners.

(Psst!  Look at the picture!  The Poptropican in it is Friendly Bug!  In another one of CC’s posts!  Curious, very curious!)

Uh…And We’re Supposed To Want Those Costumes…

I think that the Creators need a little help…  Their new costumes are getting a little bit crazy…

Before I get to that, though, there is another piece of news…the Members-Only Gear Pack for Poptropolis Island is out!

The items that you get are the Wrestling Gear Costume, the Plant-A-Statue Power, and the Discus.

Here’s what the Wrestling Gear Costume looks like:

To use the Plant-A-Statue Power, just go to your items, find the item’s card, and press the button that says “Activate”.

Then, go to where you want to plant the statue, and press the SPACEBAR.  You’ll put a statue down, and it will grow, out of the ground.  A little birdie will fly over to it and sit on it, as well.

You can also choose what color you want the statue to be by pressing the circles on the top of the item card.

To use the Discus, just go to your items, choose what color you want the Discus to be, and then activate it.

First Discus

Second Discus

Your Poptropican will get the Discus.  Just press the SPACEBAR to see the Discus soar around the room (don’t worry, though, it will fly back to your Poptropican’s hand).

Now.  For the bad news.

The Creators recently added a new costume to the Poptropican Store…and it’s not that great.  In fact, it’s pretty terrible.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so I’ll just let the picture do all the talking.

Yep.  A baby costume.  Pretty terrible right?

And, according to the post that the Creators did on the costume, you have to spend your credits to buy this costume!  I think this is getting a little crazy…

Just saying.

A Costume, a Troll, and a Dryad

In case you haven’t heard, the Creators have announced that Twisted Thicket Island comes out next week on the 12th.

So, even though the island doesn’t come out until next week, the Creators have decided to break some rules and give members the Lumberjerk Costume, the Troll power, and the Dryad Follower a little early.

Twisted Thicket items now available in the Poptropica Store!

Poptropica Members may have another week to wait before you can play Twisted Thicket, but you can visit the Poptropica Store right now to pick up your exclusive Twisted Thicket gear! These new items include a Lumberjerk costume, a Troll look and power, and a Dryad follower.

All of these exciting Gold Cards are available for Poptropica Members, but you’ll have to act fast — the Lumberjerk costumes will only be available until the end of Early Access!

If you’re a non-member, you can relax.  The only thing you should really be jealous about in that pack of items is the Dryad Follower.  The rest is, well, okay…just okay.

In other news, the case of the missing countdown timer has been solved!  (If you have no idea what I’m talking about, just go to this post.  Oh, and start reading this blog more often. 😉 )  The timer has now been added to Poptropica’s homepage!

But, that’s not the only thing that has been added to Poptropica’s homepage.  This little icon was added, too.

Okay, non-members, now you can be jealous.  Yep, I was right when I thought that we would have to wait forever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and forever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever for it to come out for everyone.


Now I Nose I Don’t Have To Worry

So, yeah, you probably know about the Creators, should I say, failed, attempt at an April Fool’s joke yesterday.  They should know that we don’t fool that easily.

But for those of us who worry way too much even when there’s nothing to worry about (me!), you can now relax, because not only did we wake up to find that our Poptropicans’ faces were still noseless, the Creators have now announced that it was an April Fool’s joke.

No need to run from these noses

Well, most of you caught our little April Fools’ joke over the weekend. We aren’t adding noses to Poptropicans. Everyone would look too weird!

But there was a grain of truth in our gag. Now, you can get a fake nose in the Poptropica Store!

Fortunately, these Poptropican noses are optional, not mandatory. So visit the Poptropica Store today to get your fake nose — and get a jump on next year’s April Fools’ Day!

Here’s what each of the noses looks like:

The Red Fake Nose

The Purple Fake Nose

And The Green Fake Nose

Now I bet I know what you’re probably thinking right about now.  You’re probably saying now really, the Creators really wouldn’t expect us to pay credits for a fake nose would they?!?!  And there hasn’t been a free thing in Poptropica in, like, ages!  They have to make this free.  Well think again.  Yep.  The Creators are making us pay for a fake nose.  Don’t believe me?  Here’s a picture:

Forget about not being able to dress up as food for free, this is ridiculous!  You can’t even get a pair of horrible looking plastic glasses with a fake mustache and nose attached anymore!  I’m gonna go over to the Creators and…and…and I don’t know what I would do.  But I’d do something!

Well, that’s the end of this post.  I’ll see you who knows when, because first I have to plan how to get back at the Creators for this!

Thinking ‘Bout Food

More evidence that the Creators are most definitely bears.  Apparently all they can think about is food.  First, they added the three pie costumes for Pi Day.  That is sort of understandable.  I mean, I knew about Pi Day.  But the new costume they’ve added.  Well…I’m not so sure about this one.

The new costume is…a waffle.  Even more pathetic than pie.  Not saying that I don’t like waffles or anything, because I love them.  It just is sort of a rotten costume, that’s all.

The waffle was added for something called “International Waffle Day”, or at least that’s what it says on the costume’s item card.  Up until this moment, I didn’t even know there was such a thing as International Waffle Day.  Maybe it’s something the Creators just made up.  Or maybe it’s actually a huge holiday that somehow I missed out on hearing about.  Either way would make sense.

So, here’s what the costume looks like:

So, I’m sure I know what you’re thinking: Oh boy!  This costume has got to be free, since the Creators made the three pie costumes all cost 75 credits each!  But alas, no.  This costume costs 75 credits, just like the pie costumes.  When it gets to where you can’t even dress up like food for free, well…well…I don’t know what well.  Or is it well what?  Either way, I’m sure I have you plenty confused now.  So I think I leave you to ponder what on earth International Waffle Day is.

Edit: The Creators did a post on the costume after I did this post.  I thought that you might like to see it, so here’s the post:

Waffles, tasty waffles!

Did you know that today is International Waffle Day? Did you further know that there’s a new costume in the store which celebrates it? You do now!


Boys can pick up the square waffle costume, while girls can get the stylish round waffle costume. Both look tasty to me, but it appears that the house pets of Poptropica disapprove.

Head to Poptropica and visit the Poptropica Store to get your waffle costume!

Well, that’s it for now.  IC out!

Items to Make You “Stink-Tacular” in Every Way

New in the Poptropica Store!

Vampire’s Curse Island is coming soon, and the fun has already started for Poptropica Members! The Vampire’s Curse Island gear pack is available now in the Poptropica Store!

Sea Captain Costume

Remember the three Members-only items that the Creators released for S.O.S. Island?  Well, one of them, the Sea Captain Costume, is available for only a limited time!

One week left to claim your captain’s costume!

We’ve got good news and bad news. The good news: S.O.S. Island will be open to everyone next Thursday, February 16.

The bad news: The Members-only Sea Captain costume will be gone from the Poptropica Store next Thursday, February 16.

Anyone who gets Membership after next Thursday will still be able to get the Fishing Pole and Sonar Power, but the Sea Captain Costume is only available during the Early Access period for S.O.S. Island!

Don’t delay! Get a Poptropica Membership today to avoid missing out on the Sea Captain costume — and then take your pick of any other outfit in the Poptropica Store, too!

So, Members, if you haven’t already gotten the costume, you better get the Sea Captain costume soon!  Otherwise you might just find that the captain will have gotten on its ship and sailed away.

Non-members, prepare yourself for a rescue mission! S.O.S. Island is coming to you next Thursday!

Football Gear…

Let’s see… I’ve got my helmet and…and I just realized how little I know about what you wear for football.  But, it doesn’t matter, because with the American Football Player costume you get all the necessary gear without having to try and understand any of it.

Guess the Creators really like football, because they’ve moved the American Football Player costume to the front of the Poptropica Store.

Get ready for kick-off!

In honor of the big game this weekend, we’ve moved one of our classic costumes to the front of the Poptropica Store.

No matter who wins on Sunday, your outfit will be championship caliber when you don these duds!

The American Football Player costume can be costumized in your choice of four colors.Why would you want a blue helmet, though? Silver is MUCH better!
