When I’m still in elementary school, my cousin, whose father is a steward, had asked me to play Polly Pocket with her. My uncle bought her Polly Pocket from abroad, If am not mistaken he bought it in Singapore. I am very thrilled when I played with her, and then I obsessed to have it too. Until now, I have 6 set of Polly Pocket.
All six Polly Pocket set that I have.
Do you know what Polly Pocket is?
Polly Pocket is a toy line of dolls and accessories. Polly Pocket German series was first designed by Chris Wiggs in 1983 for his daughter Kate. Using a powder compact, he fashioned a small house for the tiny doll. The name comes from the fact that many of the original Polly Pocket dolls came in pocket-size cases. The current Fashion Polly dolls sold by Mattel differ significantly from those originally sold by Bluebird Toys. *My Polly Pocket are the Bluebird Toys version.* The original Bluebird dolls were less than one inch tall and made of hard plastic, and the first Polly Pocket toys appeared in stores in 1989. Mattel’s versions are two to three inches tall and are composed of a pliable plastic with soft rubberized clothing and fashion accessories.
Less than a year ago, I found my vintage collection Polly Pocket while cleaning my room. Its bring back a childhood memory. How I really love to play with them. But after that I start to forget it again… *poor polly*
A week ago, I accidentally found it again. But this time I get overly excited. I take a pictures, and googled about the “Vintage” Polly Pocket. The more I dig, the more I want it MORE!! *brb breaking my piggy bank*
