Update: The cover of the new Wimpy Kid book.

Well, all you costumizers out there, the Creators have some tips for you to help make your Poptropican look and feel better. Check it out!

Poptropica Tips and Tricks: Dial-a-costume

In Nabooti Island, one of the items you acquire to help complete your quest is a cell phone. Did you know that you can also use it for fun?

First, go to the Mountains of the Moon and enter the cave at the top of the mountain. Pick up the cell phone in the bottom left corner of the cave. Then, start dialing for costumes!

Dialing “911” will get you this lovely police hat.

In real life, you dial “411” to get information. In Poptropica, you dial it so that you can get a brain that already has all the information.

If you’re looking to impress your friends with your incredible computer sk1llz, this next costume is for you. Dial “1337” for these elite threads.

That looks spectacular with the brain hair. I sense a fashion trend!

Poptropica Tips and Tricks: The randomizer

Poptropica has lots of great costumes and accessories that you can buy from the store, or costumize from the characters you meet on your adventures. But did you also know that you can get a random costume any time you want?

It’s simple: just press Ctrl+Shift+R and an entirely new Poptropican will appear. Everything will be different, from hair style to accessory. Here’s some of what you might see.

Just a handsome pirate hanging around on Skullduggery Island. And then:

A pink-colored athlete.

A suave-looking fella in sunglasses.

This last guy looks like my accountant.

Be careful, though. Once you switch costumes using the randomizer, there’s no way to switch back right away! (Unless it’s a costume you bought in the Poptropica Store. Those stay in your inventory.)

Speaking of which, where did I put my eyepatch?
