I remember these the first time around back in late 80s. I was probably a bit too old for them then, but to me,they were 'little pockets of joy'.
Now I am a grown woman with children of my own, I buy these with find memories.
A couple of years ago, we ended up with a Polly pocket, made of rubber. We weren't impressed as Polly had no play durability.
Fast forward, I saw this on an Amazon lightning deal. I couldn't help but notice that Polly now had the original style hard body, with bendable limbs. On that basis, this ended up being put in my shopping bag.
The detail is lovely. All except the cardboard background, which lets it down. But the vibrant, bright colours appeals to children. The outer case is more beautiful now than it ever was.
When open, the detail has been thought of well. Little doors to open, swings to play on and dining benches to sit at. All these little pieces are easily stored in the case.
What makes Polly Pocket great, is the convenience of it. These little toys can be taken to a restaurant or Grannies house. For us, we are flying to Florida on an 9 hour flight, and these little toys will be perfect for that. Currently, my daughter is using it as a doll's house for her Barbies!
These offer great value. I paid about £10 on a lightning deal and at that price, these make great gifts and stocking fillers.
Don't buy these expecting them to be the same as the 80/90s - they are not - these are not intended to be duplicates from yesteryears. Polly Pocket, however, is still a 'pocket of joy' for today's child.
My daughter loves these little sets and for the price and the amount she plays with them I think they're a good addition to the toy chest. They seem to be fairly well made and definitely have play value for a child that likes imaginative play. The only faults are that she struggles to set them up, the bumps don't seem to fit very well and things are forever popping apart which frustrates her (and me as I have to keep stepping in!) I will continue to build the collection though, we shall see how they live up to the test of time!
Brought this for my granddaughter and she loved it and loved hearing her auntie tell her stories about when she used to play with polly pocket when she was younger. It definitely brought back some memories for my daughter to reminisce with her niece.
Polly pocket-These are a bit expensive for what they are.. However it was very difficult to find the same things elsewhere. This was given as a gift and was well received, plenty of fun to be had with an old school favourite toy!
Bought for grand daughter as a Xmas present she loved it, our daughters had these when they were young and loved them, good to see they are still around for the next generation to enjoy. Arrived quickly.
Bought this to go with the fun tower for 6 year old granddaughter. She liked playing with the additional figures and interchanging with the fun tower. Because this is compact it is good for travelling.
