Polly Pocket Pet Shop Playset

The Polly Pocket Pet Shop Playset from Mattel ($29.99) might be one of the best toys to come to our home in a long time. Both my older girls are avid animal lovers and this pet shop playset is exactly the type of toy they are always trying to create with their own toys. It is just big enough for two kids to play which makes it even better.

The Pet Shop playset comes with –

  • Comes with Polly doll in an adorable outfit with paw-print dress
  • Pet shop features a rotating carousel with eight animals
  • Play spaces include front of pet shop, downstairs, upstairs grooming area, swing, and checkout
  • Cool and colorful design with paw-print accents
  • Travel from floor to floor with the working elevator
  • Lots of nurturing playtime for every animal lover

Small enough to fit on our end table.

By far my girls loved that it came with more pets.  They thought that the pet shop area that serves cat and dog treats that really come out of the dispenser by a lever was incredibly cool.  I have to admit that I did too.  They had fun taking care of the three baby kittens and the bird on the swing too.  All the accessories have been well loved and played with non-stop since the set arrived about two weeks ago.  There is a rotating carousel and a working elevator too.  So far this toy has provided a lot of hours of fun all over our house.  It is lightweight and the three and six year-old take it to the den, the play table, their bedroom, and even the kitchen with no problem.

We also received a Polly Pocket DVD to watch together.  My girls loved it and knew the theme song immediately as it is the same one used on the Polly Pocket website.  They enjoyed watching Polly and her friends compete in a roller blading/reality TV game show, especially my four year-old.  At the end she said (spoiler alert!),  “I liked it.  I liked that Polly didn’t win.” The quality and story line is like the ones they can view on the website and it was short too.  A nice DVD to pop in while you are making dinner and they need a bit of distraction.
