Be still our 90s beating hearts. Because Polly Pocket, the pint sized playmate from our childhood, is blasting back from the past.
And we’re not talking about the latest modernised versions of Polly either. Oh no. The real original, Polly Pocket. Compact clamshell houses and all.
Polly Pocket is kind of a big deal right now. She’s making many collectors a small fortune on eBay with her vintage houses selling for thousands of dollars.
With the cult-like following for the little gal, Mattel has decided to relaunch the popular product, much to the delight of 90s kids everywhere.
Because what’s better than returning to the world of Polly Pocket? How about returning to this childhood world with your OWN children?
I, for one, cannot wait. And I’m pretty sure my daughter is gonna be stoked too. Except when she realises I secretly purchased the sets for myself, not her.
A sneak peek at the new Polly Pocket
Although Polly and her friends will be slightly larger than the original vintage collection, they are still itty bitty in comparison to other dolls on the market. Each doll stands less than one inch tall and comes with that signature bend in the stomach.
What about the little shell-like houses? Yep, they are coming back too. There’s a fully-decked out two story house, a night club, a star-shaped music studio and even a tropical beach party, complete with mini inflatable floaties. I know, I’m squealing inside too.
Like the originals, the new compact worlds are easy to transport and come with heaps of cute accessories.
Mattel is launching the new sets in June 2018 over in America. No word on if or when they will make their way to Australia. But fingers crossed they do. After all, shipping can’t be THAT much on the teeny tiny toys.
This isn’t the first product from the past that’s making a MASSIVE comeback this week. Check out the crazy return of Cadbury’s Caramilk chocolate bar, which is sending everyone into a chocolate-induced frenzy.
