Poll: Which Book Would YOU Want as a Poptropica Island?

  In our last post I asked you all to hypothesize a Hunger Games Island, similar to previous Poptropica islands based on popular books such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Wimpy Wonderland.

If these images are together, then it looks like ... Read More »

I have to admit, that would look pretty cool on my shelf. Here’s the original announcement: We still need 2,300+ more votes to reach 10,000 supporters for the Dr. Hare’s Lair Lego ... Read More »
