One of my family’s favorite ways to relax and unwind amidst the hustle and bustle of life is gaming, especially when we’re not caught in a whirlwind of activities. Games are also a surefire way for us to nix boredom when traveling, whether we’re on the road, waiting at the airport, or on a plane. Some of our favorite types of games are puzzles and hidden object games. These type of games challenge us intellectually since they all require strategy, skill, and patience.
That’s why Poptropica Worlds quickly became a family favorite. Poptropica Worlds is enjoyable as it is challenging in every aspect, not to mention addictive! Created by Jeff Kinney (author of Diary of a Wimpy Kid book series), Poptropica is an interactive storytelling game that teaches skills that will be beneficial throughout a child’s life that includes decision-making and problem-solving.
Children can customize their “Poptropican” character with various costume options. Their Poptropican character is enabled to travel to a wide array of 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 like 24 Carrot, Great Pumpkin Island, Escape from Pelican Rock, and Zomberry Island. Game players can also enjoy an immersive game of “Cars III” since Disney is the official exclusive partner of Poptropica Worlds.
This game is part of Sandbox & Co’s group of award-winning products, platforms, and brands. The group consists of Hopster, Tinybop, SuperAwesome, TeacherVision, FamilyEducation and more. Together, the group currently reaches over 20 million kids, parents and teachers worldwide every month, helping to drive the Education 2.0 revolution through interactivity, creativity, exploration, and personalization.
