Polly Pocket By Euphrates
I was originally tempted to dismiss Polly Pocket as a '90s version of Liddle Kiddles.
They both have a locket series. They are both under 4 inches tall. They are both made by
Mattel, although Polly was originally created by Bluebird Toys of Swindon, England, the home
of XTC! But there is one thing that is really unique about this line, and that is Pollyville,
the fictitious town that Polly lives in with her friends. Now, Ideal did introduce
Flatsyville in the '70s, but Pollyville is considerably more
complex, with stores and accessories that you can organize on a large vinyl mat/map. Very charming
and quite challenging to complete.
Since Polly is still available in stores today, she has not quite reached her peak collectible value. She does have a huge fan base of all ages. She is also over 10 years old and comes with lots of little bitty parts that end up everywhere but with the figures, so her day is coming. Just think of what will happen to property values in Pollyville when it does!
