Poptropica's Fourth Birthday 
Looks like every week something new! Yay! Here are this weeks.




I'm guessing they will also release the members only Skulduggery Members Only Suit, the White Ninja Suit, the Find Nessie game, Snoopy Follower, Wild West Mini-Game, and the Paper Boy. I doubt they will release the 3rd birthday suit though.

Books, Dogs, and Fish.

Dogs in the Dead of Night

You may not know this about me, but your old pal Captain Crawfish loves to read. That's why I was so happy to see that the Magic Tree House store on Red Dragon Island has been updated.

That's right, there's a new Magic Tree House book out, called Dogs in the Dead of Night, and an accompanying Fact Tracker called Dog Heroes! You can learn all about these new books by visiting Main Street on Red Dragon Island, and entering the Magic Tree House store.

Happy reading!

First... Oh. My. Gosh. This whole legend thing's hype is quite large, I mean, when I saw this I went "EEEEEE!!!" because I'm so excited about this whole legend, really I am just happy that there is more Info coming. Please, look below at the post below this so that you can read its epicness, and vote on my poll and comment if you select that answer.


The official guide to D.C. Diner

It is here and once again, Membership segregates who can get certain prizes. The game is about seating people, getting them coffee, soda, or root beer, then serving them either chicken, a burger, or desert, and then cleaning their plate doing this for every customer before time runs out. You get +30 seconds for everyone you serve the first two shifts, +20 seconds the next two shifts, then +15 for the rest of the game. The only bad part is that Non-Members can only do 3 shifts... (thats why I got membership, so I can bring you guys more accurite posts on the world of Poptropica.) Members can do as many shifts as they want and win all the prizes. Also Members also get more upgrades to help them. Here are the upgrades and prizes.

Upgrades:

Hostess (members and non-members): Seats everyone whenever there is an open seat.
Fast Drinks (members and non-members): makes filling drinks faster.
Larger Tray (members only): Enables you to carry more orders at one time.
Bus Boy (members only): Makes washing dishes instant.
Faster Cook (members only): Lets you make three orders at a time and they cook faster.

Like I said above, non-members can only do three shifts then can play the mini-game but Members can go as far as they want.

Prizes:


Edison Light Bulb (members and non-members): Thomas Edison comes in and when you serve him you get this cool hand held light bulb. It only lights up when you press space bar though.

Mark Twain Haircut (members and non-members): Mark twain comes into your dinner and when you serve him you get his epic new haircut but that's all you get.

Magicians Hat (members and non-members): After you serve Harry Houdini, you get this awesome new hat with a lot of special features. When you press space bar bubbles come out and a bunny pops up and sometimes flowers do also.

Eiffel Tower Hat (members only): After Gustav Eiffel eats in your diner, you receive an Eiffel Tower hat. >(insert clever pun here, get it?)<

Tesla Coil (members only): After Nikola Tesla eats and leaves, you get the Tesla Coil. This item is like the Electrifier, and it also makes you shoot lightning after you press space bar.

Are the Creators trying to put blogs out of business?

Are the Creators trying to put blogs out of business? I would say no, but they have started making their own guides!

It replaced the "Mini-Store Stand" on Astro-Knights  so will this become a reoccurring thing on islands? I don't know but what I do know is that it is good. There is a home page that showcases the Mini-Guide parts that explain the most popular/hardest parts of the island, also a page that offers a Mini-Video Guide for each step of the Island, and a Help By Topic page that has a direct link to the videos that explain how to get each item, what to do in each room, and how to win the boss battles (as shown below). It is really quite impressive.


And there is a new PCB post on the new, upcoming, Mini-Game that seems to be based on Diner Dash. It even shares part of the name.




D.C. Diner is coming!

Are you ready for the newest Poptropica mini-game?


D.C. Diner is the craziest, zaniest restaurant you've ever seen. All of the VIPs who are about to board the Mystery Train are stopping in for a bite. It's up to you to serve them all and keep them happy!

D.C. Diner will be available very soon! Keep an eye on this space to be the first to know when it's available.

EDIT

D.C. Diner is now out and here are the pictures of all the prizes.
 And in other news, we can now friend on Poptropica! If you try to click on friend though, well, you cant, but it is an option. Also we can see what country everyone else is from.




Prety cool, ehh?


And in other news, you can now friend on Poptropica. Well if you try to click on "Friend" you cant soo.... Also there is a new feature where you can see what country everyone else is from!





Finaly, will we be getting a new, cool feature? Check this new Daily Pop post to see.
From Speeding Spikes facial hair I would say that the Creators are making thier own version of MAP
Sorry, this is a long post...

I found you, Dr. Hare

Where was Dr. Hare?

Last week, we shared another picture of Dr. Hare somewhere in the world. Did you figure out where he was?

Dr. Hare was in London, England! That was the London Eye behind him, as well as Big Ben.

Here's another picture from a different angle, with St. Paul's Cathedral in the background.

Keep an eye out, because you never know where Dr. Hare will turn up next!

He is still in England. St. Paul's Cathedral is in London.

And there is a new Adventure Time add. Here are some pictures.

Nom on this!

New this week in the Poptropica Store

The only thing that can make a hot dog better is some ketchup and mustard. That's why we've upgraded the Hot Dog costumes in the Poptropica Store with a new power!

Now, when you costumize the Hot Dog, you can choose to give your character a bottle of ketchup or mustard to squirt onto unsuspecting Poptropicans. For vegetarians, the Tofu Dog costume now comes with bottles of wasabi sauce and organic ketchup.

Best of all, if you've already got the Hot Dog or the Tofu Dog in your inventory, now you've got the new powers, too! No need to do anything but costumize them.

Enjoy!

I guess that this will be a reoccurring thing.

Where in the world is Dr. Hare?

Dr. Hare is at it again, traveling the world to plan his global domination.

Where do you think he is this time?


I guess that this will be a reoccurring thing.

Can I have the Mini-Game Special, Please?

May I take your order?

Just a little screenshot to whet your appetite for a new minigame that will be coming to Poptropica very soon.


Looks like we will be serving people food and drink. And is that beer?

Thor-bolt!

The new Daily-Pop update shows something very interesting... We already have a Greek Mythology based island, but now there is going to be a Norse Mythology island. Look at this picture, Thor's Hammer, and it is apparently from Valhalla. So... we have a legendary island, a Norse island, and a train island. I guess we'll have to wait and see.


More details on Mystery Train Island!

If you haven't had the chance yet, check out the Mystery Train Island info page for more details about this mind-bending mystery!

And keep an eye out right here on the creators' blog for even more clues about the next Poptropica adventure. The train will be leaving the station before you know it!
