As a parent, it can be hard knowing what sites websites are safe for kids. Between streaming videos and online games there is a whole other world on the internet. My kids first started playing Poptropica® a few years ago. Poptropica is a virtual world in which kids explore and play in complete safety. It’s quite the popular game with over 2 million monthly active users from around the world being entertained and informed by Poptropica’s engaging quests, stories and games!
New Poptropica Worlds
Why is this virtual world so fun? Kids create a “Poptropican” character to travel the many Islands of Poptropica and use gaming literacy to enjoy a narrative that is often rooted in factual history. Problem-solving skills are honed as kids discover and solve mysteries unique to each Island. Things have gotten even more fun with Poptropica launching the new Poptropica Worlds App on May 23rd, 2017!
StoryArc Media’s Poptropica has launched Poptropica Worlds, a reimagining of the safe, engaging, interactive and learning world that, for a decade, has consistently captivated millions of kids 6-12. It is a seamless gaming experience between web and mobile.
Before we jump into the Ultimate Poptropica Merchandise Guide, let’s talk about the new Poptropica Worlds app you can download for iOS and Android right now! First, did you know that this immersive and interactive storytelling world was created by Jeff Kinney, author Diary of a Wimpy Kid book series?! No wonder my kids like it so much!
In Poptropica Worlds, kids are empowered to explore a chain of story-based islands where they battle monsters, solve mysteries, and complete quests as their personalized Poptropican avatar. An avatar they create and build out themselves. By engaging with Poptropica, kids explore such learning fundamentals as literacy and problem solving, as well as 21st Century skills and other subjects that are customizable to their interests.
Fun Facts about Poptropica Worlds
