According to the Poptropica Creators’ Blog, in celebration of the Year of the Monkey (Chinese New Year), The Unknown Island will have simians, otherwise known as monkeys- on the island. Fret not, though. Their friendly!
Though, in the picture below, it appears the avatar is being knocked back, but the post says differently, calling them friends. What do you think? Friendly or not friendly?
Happy Chinese New Year!
