Young At Heart: Polly Pocket

Time for another Young At Heart feature! Last weekend I got out my Polly Pocket collection and had fun playing and taking photos. I love these original Polly Pockets and their tiny little dwellings. My sister and I would play with them for hours when we were little (along with Littlest Pet Shop).

Polly Pocket was first designed in 1983 by Chris Wiggs, for his daughter Kate. He transformed a powder makeup compact into a small house for a tiny doll. Bluebird Toys, a british toy company, licensed the concept and the first Polly Pocket toys appeared in store in 1989. In 1998, it was bought by Mattel and redesigned into a completely different toy.

My girls still play with Polly Pockets. The sets are so tiny that the little pieces get lost or sucked up by the vacuum, but they girls just make me fish them back out and keep on playing. Thank you for sharing.
