Polly Pockets Are Making a Comeback This Year With a Whole New Look

ATTENTION nineties kids! Polly Pocket is making a comeback and the compact toys have been given a brand new look.

The must-have toys were launched in the late 80s and then were discontinued to the heartbreak of many in 1998 when Mattel took over Bluebird Toys.

However, now the clam-shaped line has been completely re-done, with the look of Polly and her friends updated for kids (and possibly the nostalgic adult) today.

The new Polly Pocket dolls are slightly bigger than the old design, which the original dolls standing less than an inch tall and bending in the middle.

The new compact worlds are still easily transportable, and come with a range of scenes of Polly and her gang to be featured in.

Choose from Polly at a tropical beach, riding in an open-topped limo or playing music in a studio.

The popular toy has now been redesigned and is set to be released later this year. The new dolls are slightly larger than the previous design but still live in compact homes.

The new Polly Pocket line will launch in June this year in the US and could be the perfect way to relive your childhood memories.

The pocket-sized dolls originated at the end of the 1980s and became seriously popular amongst kids growing up in the 90s.

They were initially designed by Chris Wiggs in 1983 for his daughter, and he used a powder compact to house the dolls at the start.

The dolls were bought by Bluebird Toys in the late 80s and then toy giant Mattel in 1999.

After that, the brand was redesigned and expanded with new accessories and characters – it even got its own TV series, before eventually dying down in the noughties.

If you still have your old collection from your childhood, it could be worth a small fortune.
