little miss pocket



Polly Pockets were some of my favorite toys as a kid, and I'm pretty sure Polly instilled in me a lifelong fascination with miniatures. I've been hoarding tiny replicas of food, animals, and household objects for years and I even have a few Polly Pockets on display around my home. While I remember being especially fond of Polly's wee kitten (above) as a child, my favorite of her haunts has to be Polly's Parisian apartment complete with a balcony overlooking the Eiffel Tower for her poodles to hang out on. Who wouldn't want that?

I LOVED Polly Pocket! I had so many of her little compact/houses/etc. My dad would bring them back after business trips for me.

I'm a massive fan of miniature things, and Polly Pockets are one of those things... I still have my collection and they'll have to kill me before I sell one of them! hah
Lovely blog, Sarah! You have loads of cute things here ♥
Much love, Lottie xx
Hi, Lotts!

hannah said...

Oh my gosh, this post is perfect. Just the other day I was feeling nostalgic and came across the best site ever which had details of each and every vintage Polly Pocket. It was lovely to look through the years and spot all the ones I had as a child (and still have in the loft!). I really want to dig mine out and have a look again, they were my absolute favourite toy as a child and I'm hoping my own children one day might like to play with them too. xxx

Oh my goodness! How I miss these!

Crystal said...

Ahh, nostalgia.. Polly Pockets were definitely one of my favorite toys! I can't believe how much some of the 90's toys sell for on eBay. Remember those scented cupcake dolls?

The Mad Twins said...

Ooh, I was almost forgotten about them, but now I do remember I have played with this for soooo long *w* and indeed, who wouldn't want to live with a few of the Eiffel tower

Michelle said...

This totally brought back good childhood memories! I had that exact pink heart pocket. I wanted to add more to my collection but for some reason my parents never cared for them. They should still make these, in my opinion. I had so much fun playing with these tiny things!
