Barbie may remain to be all the rage for kids these days, but many of us over a certain age will remember another favourite toy, Polly Pocket. And parents probably remember the toy with less fondness; from all the times they had painfully trodden over the tiny Polly Pocket pieces. Launched in 1989, Polly Pockets were designed by Chris Wiggs, for his daughter, using a powder compact to house the dolls at the start.

During that time, over 10 million Polly Pockets were sold! Despite the toy’s raging success in the 90s, the toy was eventually discontinued. Until now.

Polly Pocket is to make another much awaited comeback and will be available in stores from June. The dolls have gotten some major makeover; they will be slightly bigger in size than the ones from the late eighties. Also, sport a new look.

So if you still happen to have your Polly Pocket toy, it might be worth a small fortune.
