We have good news and bad news. The good news: we’ve surpassed 500,000 page views on our LEGO CUUSOO project page. The bad news: we still haven’t reached the halfway mark of 5,000 supporters.So, no more Dr. Nice Bunny. It’s time to bring out the jumbo-sized carrots. Last week I told you about a special prize we’d be handing out when and if we reach 5,000 supporters
But you played hardball. And you know what? One special prize isn’t enough. That’s why, once we reach 5,000 supporters, we’ll be giving out TWO special prizes.
That’s right, we’ll give away the Dr. Hare Deluxe Ballon AND the Insignia Deluxe Balloon just as soon as the 5,000th person signs on to support Dr. Hare’s Lair at LEGO CUUSOO!Can you be the one to help us reach this goal? Don’t do it for me, or for the thousands of other Poptropicans who would love a couple of free balloons. Do it for yourself. You deserve something nice.

“What’s the next Island going to be?” That’s the question we hear over and over when we talk to our fans. Well, if you want a hint as to what we’re working on next, the best thing to do is visit Sneak Peeks in the Daily Pop!In Sneak Peeks, we post concept art and other work in development for unannounced Islands. If you’d been checking Sneak Peeks through January and February and seen images like the one posted above, you probably would have surmised that we were working on a movie-themed Island… long before we announced Back Lot Island!Sneak Peeks is updated five days a week. All you need to do to check it out is to visit Poptropica and click on the “Daily Pop” icon to see the latest. We’re usually working on more than one Island at a time. Can you guess what we might be working on next?
When you travel somewhere, the best way to remember your trip is by taking photos. The same is true when you journey into Poptropica.
Ever since we launched the Photo Album feature last year as part of Poptropica Friends, we’ve been adding four new photos to every Island. At this point, there are 133 unique photos that you can collect, simply by playing through each Island!
But Poptropica photos are even better than the ones you take on vacation, because you can actually costumize off of what you were wearing in each one. The same is true when you look through your friends’ photo albums!
If you haven’t opened your photo album for awhile, take look — you might be surprised at what you find.
An adventure of pre-historic proportions is landing on Poptropica!
If you visit Shark Tooth Island, you will have the opportunity to enter the world of The Croods, in theaters March 22. In this experience, you can explore some spectacular new locations…
…meet new friends…
…and try out new costumes and powers!
The Croods is a prehistoric comedy adventure that follows the world’s first family as they embark on a journey of a lifetime when the cave that has always shielded them from danger is destroyed. In search of a new home, the Croods discover an incredible new world filled with fantastic creatures — and their outlook is changed forever.In Theaters MARCH 22. Visit Movie Site
