Shrink Ray comes out on June 30th! It should be harder, because the Poptropicans will have brains the size of a Lego. Anyway, have you played the new Shrink Shot game yet? You have to launch yourself out of a tiny cannon, but you have to cause big chaos around the room. You can get a new Popgum flavor, a bottle of soda, crayons, a Shrink Ray balloon, and Members can also get a power that makes stars around their bodies. Since Shrink Ray Island is the 20th island, the Creators named the 20th rarest items in Poptropica. Here they are…
20. Brain Hat
The cell phone on Nabooti Island holds many secrets. If you dial 411 and then make a call, you’ll find yourself with all the information you could ever need!
19. Viking Suit
The Viking Suit is tucked away in the upper righthand corner of the Viking time period on Time Tangled Island. It’s not necessary to complete the quest, so some Poptropicans missed it. To get the Viking Suit, equip the glider from Leonardo’s workshop, and then glide from the Viking mountain until you land on the ledge with the suit.
It’s the priciest item in the Poptropica Store, but the most versatile. With the Multiverse, you can create your own room and invite your real-life friends to chat and battle.
16. Astro-Knights Medallion
Astro-Knights is one of the toughest Islands we’ve made, so it’s no surprise that not many Poptropicans have this medallion in their inventory. But it’s not out of reach! All you need is a little perseverance.
15. Goofy Glasses
Another treasure hunt item, the goofy glasses were briefly available in the sewers of Super Power Island. But if you missed out then, you can still get them in the eyeglasses shop on Spy Island!
14. Wild West Hero
All Poptropica Members who played the cattle-rustlin’ preview game for Wild West Island were granted this exclusive Wild West Hero outfit. But this wasn’t even the most rare item from that game!
The sunglasses were briefly available on top of Pendulum’s lab on Time Tangled Island. The dark glasses will return, however! Players who get the Spy Island 3″ action figures will receive a code that will allow them to wear a Spy Agent costume that includes these killer shades.
12. Mech Pilot
For a limited time, Poptropica Members were given this Mech Pilot costume. Anyone can freely costume similar costume parts on Poptropica, but this specific costume is a rare one indeed.
11. Skullduggery Pirate
The Skullduggery Pirate was part of a special two-pack given to Members shortly before the debut of Skullduggery Island. Be on the lookout for two more Skullduggery-themed costumes, Captain Crimson and Captain Cobalt, when you get the Skullduggery Island 3″ figures. Speaking of Skullduggery Island…
10. Skullduggery Medallion
Another challenging Island, Skullduggery has seen fewer completions than most of the other Poptropica adventures. It’s not too hard, though — just keep working your way clockwise from one trading post to the next, and in no time you’ll have enough doubloons to buy the Phoenix Warbird!
9. Paper Kid
To celebrate the release of our Diary of a Wimpy Kid-themed Island, Wimpy Wonderland, all Poptropica Members got the “Paper Kid” costume. Unlike most costume cards, this one doubled as a special power. You can paperize anyone else you see, too!
8. Woodstock Follower
This special item was available to Poptropica Members during the launch of Great Pumpkin Island. Snoopy’s pal, Woodstock, will follow you around anywhere you go!
7. Robin Hood Limited Edition
You can still find the standard-issue Robin Hood costume in the Poptropica store, but this limited edition was available for only a short time back in 2009.
6. Renegade Robot Limited Edition
Like the limited edition Robin Hood costume, the Renegade Robot was available in the Poptropica Store for one short week back in August of 2009.
5. Light Ninja
The most sought-after costume from those heady days of summer 2009, the Light Ninja lives on in the hearts and minds of Poptropicans everywhere.
This dazzling costume was available for a short time by clicking on an otherwise unremarkable window in Early Poptropica.
3. Cryptids Nessie Hat
One of the hardest items to acquire in Poptropica’s history was the Nessie Hat during the sneak preview of Cryptids Island. Players could look through a viewfinder on the shores of Loch Ness, and those who spotted Nessie won this item!
2. Wunder Bubble Tonic
Unlike the Loch Ness viewfinder, roping cattle in the Wild West sneak preview wasn’t about luck. But it was incredibly difficult, and not many Poptropicans were able to wrangle all of the prizes from that game, including the final prize, Wunder Bubble Tonic.
1. 3rd Birthday Hat
To win the 3rd birthday hat, a Poptropican had to be incredibly lucky. First of all, you had to be in a common room during our 3rd birthday celebration last September. Next, you needed to see a special balloon appear, which most Poptropicans never did. And finally, you had to click on the balloon before you left the room! Those who made it were rewarded with the 3rd birthday hat, the rarest item in the history of Poptropica.
If you missed any of these rare items over the past 20 Poptropica Islands, never fear: there will be a lot more costumes and powers to come from the next 20 Islands — and beyond!
