Full disclosure: I did not play with Polly Pockets. I was too busy playing war with GI Joes and running through the woods.
However, I do remember my friends’ sisters playing with these, so I guess they bring back some memories for me, too.
But if you were one of those kids who did get down with the Polly Pockets during your childhood, these photos will probably hit you right in the feels. Or make you wonder, “Why did I force my parents to buy me so many of these?”
1. In the package!
If you’ve got one of these still in its package, it’s probably worth something now.
2. Surprise garden
Who didn’t love those somewhat creepy garden statues?
3. Ballerina set
You could put Polly’s friends in those fancy theater boxes!
4. “Enchanted evening”
I mean, it looks kind of like an average evening at home, but that chillness sounds pretty “enchanting” to most of us adults, amiright?
5. Livin’ the dream
Sunglasses Polly was as cool as it gets.
6. Gone skiing
Alright, so maybe this is more after-skiing, but that’s arguably the best part of skiing anyway.
One day, I’d love a pool that’s roughly the size of my whole house.
8. Water park time
You could actually fill this one with water and make it interactive.
9. Back to school
Even Polly’s classroom was cute.
10. Pizza joint
Polly didn’t just stay in her house. She had a job too.
11. Waiting tables
12. Get a load of that
The light-up pockets were, in a word, AWESOME.
That’s right. Disney got in on the pocket-sized action, too.
14. Beauty and the Beast
Tale as old as time…
14. Brings you back, doesn’t it?
This school even had a playground.
