Tips for Finding the Blue Birthday Balloon in Poptropica

All week Poptropica has been celebrating its 3rd birthday with balloon-filled celebrations going on inside the common areas. And there’s a special rare #3 balloon that sometimes appears in these rooms. If you find it and click on it, you’ll get a special birthday costume for your Poptropican. Judging from all the questions in the comments section, a lot of people are having trouble finding that balloon. It is tough and requires a lot of patience, so here are some tips to make it easier!

  1. The balloon can appear in any multi-player room, which are usually found in the Main Street area of all the islands. It can also appear in player multi-verses.
  2. Be patient. Go inside the common room and then look at all the balloons that appear. If it’s in there, it will appear right away.
  3. Look carefully because at first it will probably appear behind other balloons. But since it moves around you should be able to see it quickly.
  4. If the balloon is not there, just exit the room and come back in. You’ll get a new set of balloons.
  5. It can take many, many tries to find the blue balloon, so don’t give up!
  6. Killer Tip: The best room to visit to find the blue birthday balloon is the Soda Pop Shop in Early Poptropica. This is the smallest common room in the game, and you won’t have to move around to find the balloon. If it’s in there, you’ll spot it immediately. Otherwise, just go out the door and try again.

  1. Halloween is here, but not all of the PEANUTS kids are celebrating – not when Charlie Brown keeps getting tricks instead of tricks, Snoopy is attacked by the infamous Red Baron, and Linus waits all night for the Great Pumpkin. Can you set things right to save Halloween?

  21. Dani the Magnificent

    Ooh. My brother did something wrong and I know it. Ooh.
    Anyway. Not supposed to be on here right now. Sooooooooooooo. Hm.

  22. What did he do!?
    Ooh! I knew he was a hard core criminal! He most most likely destroyed someone’s house! Criminal!

  23. Dani the Magnificent

    Leave my brother alone! He is not a criminal!

  24. Right. And I guess he is just an angel.

  25. Dani the Magnificent

    Your not an angel either Haley!
    You’re just mad he dumped you!

  26. Ugh! Yeah right!
    I broke up with him!

  27. Dani the Magnificent

    Yeah. And I guess I’m the Queen of Scotland.

  28. Whatever. You are just mad because I’m smarter than you.

  29. Dani the Magnificent

    Yeah right. More like more obnoxious.

  30. U no wat! 4get u! I dont need u!

  31. Dani the Magnificent

    My brother doesn’t need you either. That is why he left you.

  32. Whoa! Dang! Ooh! She told you! She told you! But it is true. Smart PawI’ move on.
    Get over it.

  33. Shut up!

  34. Whoa. Don’t get mad cuz you got dumped. It won’t my fault.

  35. Dani the Magnificent

    Leave us alone Haley. And take Valerie with you. My brother is done with her. So you all can leave us the heck alone. Smart Paw is tired of being stalked. He was already stalked by Brianna when he was there. But she was crazy. You are less crazy. Take a hint. Leave!

  36. I am not responsible for Valerie. Okay. And if I am that unwanted. FINE! Goodbye!

  37. Dani the Magnificent

    I hate our family’s life. It is filled with drama. Ugh. Do we need our own reality tv show? Do we!? Really!?

  38. Dani the Magnificent

    Ugh! Ugh! That is it! I’m doing what my brother is doing! Not coming back on! (Only a couple times a month.) To avoid drama! Ugh! Really. I like poptropicasecrets bu if I have to deal with this shhhhhhhhhhhhhh all the time forget it!
