My girls love their Polly Pocket Hangout House Playset so much that they couldn’t wait to open this Playtime Pet Shop set! They think they’re too old for baby dolls now so they’re a little hard to shop for because I won’t buy them any of the “older” fashion dolls that wear revealing clothes and way too much makeup. The Polly Pocket sets are marked ages 4 and up – I believe that’s simply because they have smaller parts that aren’t intended for kids three and under, but they’re perfect my six year old girls who will be seven next month!
I remember playing with Polly Pocket dolls when I was little and they were great then, but they’re even cooler now! The sets come with lots of parts and levels so there is plenty of room to play and interact with all of the pieces, and there are so many neat sets to choose from.
The girls easily snapped the bigger pieces together themselves without the help of the included instructions and they really enjoyed playing with all the movable parts like the spinning carousel and the pet treat dispenser that came with its own tiny treats. This Playtime Pet Shop comes with a swing, slide and all sorts of things to play with, plus the dolls themselves are the perfect size for carrying around in purses or pockets.
They were having so much fun playing with the Polly Pocket Playtime Pet Shop that one of their brothers just couldn’t help getting involved. All the little pets, including a puppy, cat, kittens, birds and rabbit were like magnets that just drew him in and there were plenty of pieces to play with so the girls didn’t mind letting him play too.
The kids really enjoyed opening their own pet shop and I love the fact that all of the sets will work together so the kids can mix and match the pieces for lots of playtime fun! They’re so excited about their new Polly Pocket toys that they’ve already asked to take them to school for show and tell and I’m positive that their teachers will like that much better than their previous idea of bringing a goldfish to school. With their birthdays and the holidays coming up, I’ll be on the lookout for more Polly Pocket sets!
