I wrote about a month ago about Polly Pocket© and the fun Hangout play house the girls got the opportunity to play with.* What a fun time! Well, the fun didn’t stop there because this week, they got to play with the Playtime Pet Shop complete with all the furry animals (suction-bottoms to keep them in place) and the girls got a DVD that they could watch about Polly Pocket too. There were three chapters in the DVD under the title called “Friends Finish First”. My kids’ favorite part of the DVD was the adventures portion (“Adventurista”) where Polly and her friends are on a real adventure competition, and it also helped them relate to the toys they were playing with and the possibilities of adding even more sets to their existing fun play sets. After watching the DVD, ask yourself, “what was your favorite adventure?” Check out all the Polly Pocket© play opportunities here.
All of the play sets are connectible and can be played with together as a giant set. I love the imagination that can go into this and the suction pieces, but I have to say, we have already sucked some of them up in the vacuum cleaner. Then we had to remove them from the bucket. So, I would urge you to get a bag or a container for your kids to put the pieces in once they are done. As far as portability, the pieces even with the suction tend to fall off and land in the carpet or floor even when the kids are moving the play sets together or apart or to different rooms. After all, every room in the house is the kids’ room. 🙁
Other than that small issue, the girls really enjoyed the sets, and they love all the pieces and possibilities. The girls have enjoyed watching the DVD and the adventures of Polly Pocket© and her friends too and of course, that means the parents have seen the DVD a few times too … ha. And here is a picture of my younger daughter really excited about her new play sets.
