Review: Polly Pocket Playtime Pet Shop

Polly Pocket Playtime Pet Shop

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!

Polly Pocket Playtime Pet Shop

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!

Review: Polly Pocket Hangout House Playset

My quadruplets are six and think they’re such big kids now! The two girls feel like they’re way too old for baby dolls but they still really like “girly” toys only it can be pretty difficult to find things that are age appropriate and that they also think are “just right”.

I remember getting some Polly Pocket toys for Christmas back in the ’80s and I absolutely loved them! I think it’s wonderful that they’re popular now and my girls are playing with the same toys that I have terrific memories of from my childhood.

The really neat thing about this Polly Pocket Hangout House playset and the Stick ‘n Play Patio addition is the suction cups on the bottom of the pieces. My girls really love the size of the pieces and that they could stick them and re-stick them wherever they like.

The pieces are easy to rearrange over and over and there is a neat pink elevator that you can take up to the third floor bedroom or rooftop swimming pool. The set includes Polly, her dog and lots of furnishings. There are several different add-on kits like the Patio seen here in green that came with one of Polly’s friends, a pet, BBQ grill and everything you need for a cookout.

The girls were getting so into their Polly Pocket play that they simply had to add water to the swimming pool so that Polly and friends could have a swim party. The sets proved to be lots of fun for the girls and they’ve even been taking the figurines and other pieces with them on car trips to grandma’s for the weekend! They’d love to add some more additions and I’ll be sure to keep you informed.
