Mattel Polly Pocket Review

Before I had kids, I heard a lot about Polly Pocket from my friend Ruohmei because her daughters adored their toys. Her girls collected them for many years. My friend pretty much bought Polly Pocket for her kids on every special occasion. Since DD is 7 years younger than my friend's daughters, she got a lot of hand me down toys and clothes from them. Amongst some of the used toys she received was a box of Polly Pocket dolls. My daughter started playing them when she was 3 years old and she still owns them today.

When we received the new Polly Pockets to review, I was surprised by how different they look from the ones DD has been playing with for years.

First of all, her old Polly Pocket dolls came with some small pieces of accessories, but nothing as cool as a house for the dolls, so she was super excited about that. We noticed that the dolls are slightly larger in size which made handling them much easier for DD's little fingers. However, they are still compact enough that DD could carry the dolls in her pants pocket. Another modification is the suction cups on the bottom of the dolls' shoes and accessories. DD was a little confused by the suction bottoms at first, she was not sure why they were there. After arranging the furniture pieces in the play house, she realized how great the suction bottoms were. These little suction bottoms made sure that all of the tiny little accessories stay in place. This modification on Polly Pocket definitely made playing with the dolls much more fun. After playing with the dolls normally for awhile, DD began to use the suction bottoms in new ways-- like sticking all of the furniture pieces off the playhouse ceiling to create an upside down world for her Polly Pocket dolls. 
All in all, we were very happy with the changes made to the Polly Pockets DD received to review. In fact, she loves them so much that we are going to buy a few more of them to add to her collection.

To buy these fun toys, please visit Polly Pocket website or look for them at toy stores near you.
