Cool Island Ideas and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Anniversary!

We have two new runner-ups of the Create Your Dream Island and one is a DUDE! First thing is first! The third runner up in alphabetical order is ….

Golden Mustache Island!

and it comes from a gal… named Emma T. of New Jersey! Here’s what she spoke about her island.


The pitch: On Golden Mustache Island, people look for where the golden mustache is and who took it.

Why we liked it: Emma’s idea brought a smile to everyone’s face even before they read about the giant mustache monster. This was a unique and wonderful entry, and we absolutely loved it. Truthfully, we weren’t sure we could do it justice!

This is kinda peculiar. 🙂 Do you know that she is named as Strange Goose! Like her island! Very strange! Here is the interview between the Creators and Emma:

Poptropica Creators: How did you come up with the idea for your Island?

Emma: I love mustaches and the 70s. I thought it would be more exciting if there was an idol/statue stolen from the mustachians (instead of Poptropicans 🙂

Poptropica Creators: How did you react when you found out you’d won?

Emma: I was so happy I screamed!

Poptropica Creators: How long have you been playing Poptropica?

Emma: 5 years, since Kindergarten – I found it on a school approved website – FunBrain.

Poptropica Creators: Which Island is your favorite?

Emma:  Mystery Train. I like the mystery and history about the island.

Poptropica Creators: What 3 things would you want with you on a deserted island?

Emma: Harry Potter (the series of books), computer (for Poptropica), lifetime supply of food.

The fourth winner is a dude! He is Joel B. of Ohio with his royal-filled island…

House of Cards Island!


The pitch: In Card Kingdom, the Ace of Hearts has been stolen from the Heart Kingdom. The King and Queen of Hearts need your help to find it before there is a war.

Why we liked it: Joel’s vision of the “Card Kingdom” sounded like an incredibly fun place for us to design. He sent an additional sheet with several characters, as well as descriptions of the traits of each card suit. It was some impressive world building!

The interview:

Poptropica Creators: How did you come up with the idea for your Island?

Joel: My sister and I were jumping on the trampoline after the contest was announced, thinking up ideas for islands and House Of Cards was my favorite out of all of them.

Poptropica Creators: How did you react when you found out you’d won?

Joel: I ran around the house screaming. It was awesome.

Poptropica Creators: How long have you been playing Poptropica?

Joel: About 5 years.

Poptropica Creators: Which Island is your favorite?

Joel: That’s a hard choice, but I have to go with Cryptids Island.

Poptropica Creators: What 3 things would you want with you on a deserted island?

Joel: 1) A teleporter. 2) A lifetime supply of bacon. 3) Duct tape.

Last but not the least, it’s May 1! and we celebrate the 50 years of

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory!

We’re celebrating the 50th anniversary of one of our favorite stories of all time: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory! Roald Dahl’s amazing book was first published in 1964. Since then it’s been adapted into two movies, a stage musical, and — oh yeah! — a Poptropica Island.

In an unrelated Poptropica News, well, Mythology Island will be released tomorrow to everyone! So that we can try the newly-updated Mythology Island!
