If you were a weird kid like me, so obsessed with your Polly Pocket collection, you would just do it stare in awe of the details – the church doors to open! – – You will love it.
The 80s and 90s versions of the toys that now have their own empire were the real deal for Polly and her wild-gulpable friends, small clamshell shelters that included tiny details and limited space for the figures to stand up on their own. Creator and apparently great father Chris Wiggs literally built the first Polly Pocket in a powder compact for his daughter Kate in 1983.
Since then, the compact style has changed a bit since Mattel bought them from Bluebird Toys. But UK toy reviews site The ToyZone thought they were having a bit of nostalgic fun and would be recruiting CGI artist Jan Koudela to bring back Polly̵
Unfortunately, these can’t be bought as toys, but I would seriously consider peeling out for these small versions of the Byers house Strange things, Monica’s apartment Friendsor the big old house in Wes Andersons The royal Tenenbaums. The tiny version of the Overlook Hotel in The glow has its own little hedge labyrinth. Look at her.
