Bye… And A New Post

You want these balloons. You NEED these balloons.

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.

Bye… I’m working on LOTS of blogs right now, and I need a break. I’m sorry that I’m leaving so soon!!! 😥 I’ll still comment and look at this blog. Bye… 😦

The Smell of Victory

The smell of victory

We just can’t seem to run out of new things to tell you about in Night Watch Island. This Island has so many unique costumes and items for your Poptropican to pick up that you’d never be able to get every combination.Here’s one we haven’t mentioned yet: the perfume stand! At this kiosk, you can mix up your very own scent, and trail it all around the mall. No, it doesn’t have to smell good. It’s your choice.Night Watch Island is available now to everyone, so if you haven’t yet explored all that the mall has to offer, what are you waiting for?

Yet another post based on getting Membership to get special things… They really want more people to become members, huh? *Sigh* That’s how it is. Any who, yes, it’s true that you can get your face on several magazines! It’s really cool. So far, I’ve tried the animal magazine and was surprised my Poptropican was on the cover! Well, that’s the Membership persuasion for today! 😆

One week left to get your Cat Burglar costume!

Night Watch Island becomes available to everybody one week from today. But that also means that you’ve only got one week left to claim your Members-only Cat Burglar costume! Once Night Watch Island opens to the public, this one-of-a-kind costume is gone for good.

One week left!!! Don’t miss your chance to wear the cat burglar costume and go around the mall stealing stuff if you’re a member. 😉 Make sure to get it! It’s really cool. 🙂

Sneaky. Very sneaky.

“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?

A movie-themed island!!!! I knew it! Wait, no…I didn’t. :( Well, this pic is one of the ones we have focused on… So, whoever thought of a movie-themed, congrats!!!! So, yeah, check the “Sneak Peek” icon frequently! ;) Also, what do you think the next island is going to be?

Picture Yourself On Poptropica

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.
