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!

Hopefully we’ll learn more about Twisted Thicket Island soon!

Next up is something that I’m sure you pie freaks who go around saying “I like pie!” all the time will like.

There are three new costumes in the Poptropica Store, but they’re not just any costumes.  Although I don’t personally like them, I’m sure that there’s somebody out there who will like them…somewhere…

Happy Pi Day!

Today, 3/14, is also known as “Pi Day,” because the famous number Pi starts with the digits 3.14. Pi is important for a lot of reasons, one of which is that it allows you to calculate the area of a circle.

But there’s another kind of circular pie we like even more, and that’s why we’ve just released three new costumes to the Poptropica Store. Pick your choice of Cherry Pie, Lemon Meringue Pie, and Mud Pie to show your pride this Pi Day.

Visit Poptropica now to get your pie costumes!

Here are some pictures of the costumes:

There’s just one think I don’t understand.  Why is there “Sweet as Pie” in the costumes title?  I mean, that’s not an expression or anything.  Or is it?

Edit: Here’s a picture from the Poptropica Homepage that for some reason, no idea why, looks really funny to me.
