This spring when kids dine at the Applebee’s in their neighborhood, they will be greeted by their favorite Poptropica characters on the kids menu, the Poptropica Family Activity Book. This colorful book of fun activities will be available in Applebee’s restaurants in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico, from February 27 through May 7.
Preparing to launch its 25th Island, Poptropica is a safe, fun virtual world for kids, featuring adventures, quests and great storytelling. All-time Poptropica favorite characters – from the infamous Dr. Hare to the characters from SuperPower Island, Astro-Knights Island, Skullduggery Island and Shark Tooth Island – will be featured in the activity book’s fun facts and coloring and word activities.
“A fun and engaging children’s menu can help make dining out a great experience for families with kids,” said Jess M. Brallier, publisher of Poptropica. “Now the millions of kids who are Poptropica fans can be reminded of their favorite quests while they complete the activities and games in the Poptropica Family Activity Book at their nearby Applebee’s restaurant.”
This partnership with Applebee’s is the newest in Poptropica’s ongoing and growing family of licensing programs. Other ventures include a line of Poptropica plush characters and poseable figures from Jazwares, game cards at Target stores, and a series of Poptropica books.
