Chick acquired quite a collection of Polly Pockets for Christmas. Polly Pockets are great. They are portable, easy for little ones to dress, and best of all, their heads pop off. I give you photographic proof:
Who doesn’t like a doll where you can pop the head on and off willy nilly? However, there are plusses and minuses to Polly Pockets. I’m going to start with the negative.
1. Polly Pockets House. Have you ever seen the dollhouse? It looks like this:
Here’s the thing about the house, it’s great. Lots of hours have been spent playing with it. But look at all the furniture (and that’s not even all of it). I didn’t buy extra furniture. It came with all that. How on earth can Polly live in a house so crowded with furniture? Simple answer; she can’t. House: Fail.
2. Have you seen what the Polly Pocket multi doll/outfit packs look like? They look like this:
I’m sorry, I was almost embarrassed to buy my child this. I hid it in the bottom of the chart like some red faced teenager. Anyone else think they look eerily like condom wrappers? Or is it just me?
3. Now I know these are just toys, but dang it, Polly Pocket has a far better wardrobe than I do. Just look at all these choices:
And that’s only the ones we currently own. I can’t imagine how many other choices there are. The possibilities seem kind of endless.
All in all, Polly Pockets are fun and Chick loves them. I don’t even mind playing with them as long as I get to change up their outfits and live vicariously through Polly. I’ve heard Polly has a camper. I’m pretty sure that’ll be next on the wish list.
Did your kids get any fun toys for Christmas (or Hanukkah) that you can’t help playing with?
*I’ve had (what feels like) the bubonic plague for over a week. I haven’t been ignoring your blogs. I’ve got over a thousand posts in my reader. I thought that was kind of cool, it actually says 1000+ The kids are back to school on Monday. Hopefully I’ll have a chance to catch back up.
