First launched in 1989, Polly Pocket was the first ever micro-doll that went on to sell over 10 million compacts. And guess what? Polly Pocket* is back this autumn with the original one-inch micro-scale and compacts that made her a 90s phenomenon! With many original Polly Pocket fans now being old enough to be parents themselves, I’m sure they’ll love reintroducing their little ones to Polly’s world!
The new Polly Pocket launches a refreshed look that nods to the brand’s heritage and surprise factor, with new miniature worlds and a surprise in every compact for the 21st century girl. Along with the new product, she returns with a new animated series that will air on Pop in September and the all new ethos of tiny is mighty! Polly is often told she is ‘too little’ to do the things she wants to do but she proves what every kid already knows – that being little isn’t a limitation, it’s her greatest strength.
Each compact opens to reveal a fun theme with unexpected surprises and reveals three accessories and a micro figure. Polly is small enough to take anywhere for mighty adventures and she really does fit in your pocket. The doll itself has special sticky feet so she can stick on the special surfaces inside the locket meaning that while she is small, she isn’t fiddly. In the park set her feet can even stick to the skateboard so she can really ride – it’s so clever! When you have finished playing, all of the accessories and Polly fold away inside the locket until the next time. The locket itself even comes with a special hoop so you can attach it like a keyring. So handy for playing on the go.
These Polly Pocket Tiny Pocket Places compacts will be priced around £4.99 so not only are they pocket sized, they are also going to be pocket money friendly. They will be suitable for ages 4+ and there are going to be different sets to collect. The ones we were sent here with the park and dressing room have been a huge hit so we will definitely be adding to our collection. Polly Pocket is set to hit the shelves next month so keep your eyes peeled. In the meantime, you can find out more here.
