This is a very sweet little sandcastle shaped, beach themed Polly Pocket set.
I still have a lot of vintage early 90's Polly Pocket sets and I would've thought with the technology we have now these new ones would be better somehow but I definitely still prefer the older versions, my children play with them now and prefer how on the old versions the dolls have a round base and they stand in little holes around the set - whereas with this new version you have to stick stickers on the set to make them stand up and stick. It's a little fiddly and annoying and would be better if the dolls could simply stand on their own or if they fitted in holes to keep the original design running throughout the range.
The set itself is very fun, the dolls have little Jet-Skis for use in the water and it's a nice compact, all in one playset for travel to keep the children entertained. My children like both the old 90's ones and some of the new ones but didn't like the 'Polly-Stick Technology' with the stickers. All in all though a fun little set and great for Polly Pocket fans.
They pack a lot into Polly Pocket's, but the 'Deep Sea Sandcastle' set has to be among the most impressive as you get the beach and a sea. Polly and Pal are inhabiting what appears to be a underwater sandcastle full of hidden things to find from treasure to Jaws like sharks. The back is a residence whilst the bottom is an impressive looking body of water represented by clear plastic.
There is a lot to play with here; a dolphin ride, boat and even a couple of Jet Skis that can be taken out and played with separately. The entire thing stays on theme as the set is hidden within a sandcastle that you can carry around. There is a fun attention to detail in this set and the plastic moldings are impressive. The small nature of the toy means that even when packed with stuff, it is still is a little lacking in stuff to do. We find that played with carefully they are great for take out toys as they are easily transportable. They are not as played within the house that contains bigger things to grab.

The set. Polly Pocket is still going after all these years. My daughter is now 26 and she had them and now her little one loves them. Some toys endure for generations and this is one of them.
The play set is based on a sand castle and pool. Like Polly Pocket of old there are lots of pieces and things to do and it all folds up neatly for storage or carrying around. It comes with some stickers too. Suitable for children 4 and over due to small parts.
Overall. A great toy in the Polly Pocket range. Kids still love them and this one is great.
