Personal Poptropican Houses?

Hey guys, Zippy here! Today I'm here to talk to you about an interesting topic: Poptropican houses!

                As you may have seen, on August 25th a post was added to the Poptropica Creators' Blog about Poptropican houses. The post wasn't just filled solely with sneak peaks to get excited about, though; it was also filled with a poll to fill out that takes account of our preferences! :D

This house choice from the post is my favorite!

                Earlier this year, all the way back in April, the Poptropica Staff announced "New Poptropica", which is basically just a big makeover of the whole game. The essential and basic elements will stay the same in the game, yes, but it sounds like most of the game is going to be new and fresh - including things like new avatars (customizations to your character), new stories, new "stuff" (like shoes and pets), a totally new social experience, and just a completely new look overall.

               Back to the main point, though - the new post that was just published on the 25th further touched on the topic of "New Poptropica", and specifically on houses within Poptropica. It displayed five new and unique house options, then you could select your favorite and vote for it in a poll at the bottom of the post. I think it's going to be very interesting to see what comes of these things, especially because this wasn't just "teaser" art and a real poll was posted about it... Who knows! I'll keep you updated!

               Talk soon!

Zippy's New Look

             It's certainly been a while since I've posted a new picture of Zippy, hasn't it? I was just thinking of how his look has changed since last time I blogged on here. Instead of the crazy fluffy hair, a motorcyclist's jacket, and a tie, Zippy has some different duds. Here's what he looks like at the moment...

            Yep, there he is (and in a video production studio of Back Lot Island, which I'm currently working on, you may have noticed)! Let's break down his outfit a bit, shall we?

Hat: Zippy's blue baseball cap can be found in the parking lot of "Night Watch Island" on the head of the owner of the Slugger's store, but only before he suggests you take a security job at the mall. Once you've beaten Night Watch Island, he'll be gone, so get the hat while you can or you'll have to restart. The parking lot is to the right of Main Street. 

The reason I picked this hat was because of what it says on it, "NY", which stands for "New York", just like my favorite baseball team in real life, the "New York Yankees"! What better way to support my team than through Poptropica, am I right? The baseball I'm holding is because of the hat, too.

Shirt & Pants: Zippy is wearing a white-colored sweater with a red scarf, and is also wearing some nice blue pants that match his hat. The sweater & scarf combo shirt I also found on Night Watch Island, on one of the many people waiting outside the mall in line for the newest "MacGuffins" gadget. Even after you beat the island, the man will still be standing outside in line. He's in the fourth spot. The blue pants I just found on the "Home" island inside the "New You" shop. If you click the lever a couple of times, the pants should show up on one of the mannequins,

I chose the sweater & scarf shirt because I love how it is formal, yet at the same time pretty cool. The blue pants tie together with the shirt, too, and like I said, they match the hat as well. 


That's it for now, fellow Poptropicans! Feel free to comment your opinions on my outfit, or to comment about your own! I would love to see what kind of great stuff you guys wear. 
See ya later!

New "About Me" and "About the Blog" pages!

Hey guys, Zippy here!

              Just wanted to announce the new "About Me" and "About the Blog" pages I recently created! I thought it would be nice if my readers knew a little bit more about who I am, both in Poptropica and in real life. I also thought it would be neat to make a page for new readers that didn't know much about this blog to check out.

             You can find the link to that "About Me" page here, and the link to the "About the Blog" page here. Both of those links (along with others) are also up at a handy spot right under the blog title. Anyway, be sure to read up on those cool new pages, and leave some questions if you have any! Talk to you soon!

Back after two years!

Hello everyone, Zippy Crab here!

        Well, it's been over 2 years since I've posted on here, but I'm back! I've suddenly regained an interest for Poptropica again, so I decided I'd see if I could revive this blog back up as well.

         After all this time, I think I've trained myself to be better at the whole "blogging" thing, so expect great things! Some of the things I've been thinking of implementing on here in the future are things like the "Find Zippy" segment I used to do (where I hide in a random place in Poptropica and you try to figure out where I am), my opinion on the "Daily Pop" and what I think the next island may be about, walkthroughs for new islands I haven't covered yet (and rewritten versions of the old island walkthroughs), my opinion on certain islands and topics going on in Poptropica, and new costumes, of course!

        I'll be working my hardest to provide new content as consistently as I can; I hope you guys will enjoy it! Keep it right here at Poptropica Q & A with Zippy Crab, folks! I'll see ya later. Until next time, this is Zippy Crab, signing off....
