Hey, guys! Slip here.

A better way to celebrate my birthday is to share it with you guys. I’m really sorry if it took so long, but it’s going to be worth it, right? With no further ado, here are the answers to the questions you asked me! Hope you’ll enjoy it.


Cuddly Knuckle asked: What is your favorite Poptropica island?
Slippery Raptor: My all-time favorite would be Mystery Train Island. I like the gameplay and it has a great story. I felt like I’m Sherlock on a train!

Ultimate iPad Expert asked: Aliens?
Slippery Raptor: Definitely.

Thoughts on Poptropica’s 8th Birthday

birthday2

Hey guys, Slip here.

Welcome to a new post! It’s been a while since we’ve had our community celebrity so why not have a new post? 🙂 Today, I’ll be leaving some brief thoughts on Poptropica’s birthday! I won’t let you wait any longer- here we go!

This year’s celebration was unique. It didn’t have a new birthday costume this year and  it mainly focused on Early Poptropica. They also had the race to Early Poptropica, which was opened to all, and offered 200 Poptropica credits for first-time completions. Poptropica also celebrated on Twitter by tagging #HBDPoptropica and retweeting tweets throughout the day! However, annual traditions such as the balloon hunt and the color-changing birthday balloon came back. I also like how Poptropica came up with a great theme along with the celebration! 🙂

Although, the party had a minor downside. The balloon hunt was too easy. When you enter any common room, you can easily find the 8th birthday balloon, which spoils its rarity and the challenge when it comes to finding it but overall, Poptropica made this one of the best and the most memorable birthday parties ever thrown. I landed first and had a fun time celebrating 8 years of our favorite game. 🙂

4. When it comes to his favorite island, it would be a tie between Arabian Nights Ep. 2: Lair of Thieves and Mythology Island. Good island choices!

Community Celebrities: Brave Tomato

communitycelebs

Hello Poptropicans!

Welcome to our newest segment here! It’s called Community Celebrities. Over the weeks, I will feature someone from the community and they can share 10 or more facts about them! 🙂

——

Today’s special guest is one of my friends over at the PHB. I thank her for accepting my invitation here and the facts she shared for all of us are very interesting! I hope through this, you’ll know her even more. No further ado, let’s welcome our first Community Celebrity— Brave Tomato!

1. Brave Tomato’s favorite island is Mythology Island. She liked this island because it inspired her to look further into Greek Mythology, the information this island had was useful to her, and this was her first island when she joined Poptropica!

2. Even though her favorite island is Mythology, her favorite villain is not Zeus. She said that it was Myron Van Buren from Survival Island. She said that MVB is a different Poptropica villain because he’s not after world domination or stuff like that but his goal IS YOU. She also noted that MVB fits her description for a perfect villain— scary and intimidating.

3. Among the items in the Poptropica Store, she thinks the best items are the Biker outfit and the Rock Star 2 costume for girls. Her star sticker and signature rocker girl look will never go out of style.

4. Brave Tomato’s favorite aspect of Poptropica is its island quests. For her, every island quest has something different to offer and she likes islands with a good story.

5. Brave Tomato worked on a lot of blogs before she became a part of the PHB. Her first blog is Super Thunder’s Blog (which was owned by a former PHB author and is now renamed as “It’s A Poptropica Blog“) and she was only 12! She was only with the community for a short period of time and she met new people with same interests! According to BT, she tried making her own blog twice but she ended up leaving them due to workload.

6. Other than Poptropica, she likes to play The Sims. She told me that she has The Sims 3 & 4, and has The Sims 2 when it was just free.

7. Aside from Poptropica, she likes to draw, write, and hangout with her friends. She occasionally doodles and sometimes they come out to be a larger scale drawings.She also has friends since the 1st grade, likes companies of friends and loves being creative when she’s alone.

8. If she would be given an offer to work at Poptropica, she would like to have a position in the character development/design or the script writing departments. A perfect fit for you, BT!

As for the last two facts, I gave her a chance to share something for us:

9. She is all over social media. Make sure to follow her on Twitter (@1313cookie), Tumblr and DeviantArt (1313cookie)! She also revisits islands on her YouTube channel (TheBraveTomato13) and make sure to check them out!

10. For the last fact, BT shared the story behind her username (1313cookie):

I came up with the username 1313cookie with my dad when I got a Nicktropolis account. 13 was a favorite number among my family, and then the cookie part came in because that was my nickname around the house since well, I loved chocolate chip cookies. That sounds good!

 I’d like to thank Brave Tomato for doing this with me! At first, I thought BT was just an ordinary blogger; I was so wrong. She’s really awesome!

What’s your favorite fact about BT? Would you like to see more of these? Leave a comment!

P.S This is my last post for the summer. It’s my first day tomorrow. I’ll be very inactive but still there. 😛
