Poptropica is an online role-play browser game created by Jeff Kinney and Family Education Network for kids ages 6–15.
In the game, players, called Poptropicans travel to different islands and complete quests on them. So far there are forty-five islands released on Poptropica and over 500,000,000 Poptropicans. Poptropica creates a lot of merchandise, including the Poptropica Blimp toy and many outfits, all of which are sold at the Poptropica Shop. They also make action figures, plush models, and "Pocketeers," which are two-inch toys.
|“||Poptropica's oldest inhabitants have a problem: someone's been stealing their stuff! To return what's rightfully theirs, you'll explore creepy sewers, pitch-black caverns, and even a giant's garden in the clouds. See how it all began with the very first Poptropica Island: Early Poptropica!||”|

In August 2014, they allowed members to access a beta island, Poptropica Land, where they are able to play with special idealistic tools, costumes, etc., for their enjoyment, even if they will not be used in future islands.
