Polly Pocket!

While surfing from one blog to the next, I chanced upon this photo, which immediately brought back fond memories of one of the best toys ever created:

I feel so nostalgic looking at this photo. I used to have so many! I loved the tiny little Polly dolls, and how there were different places you could have her sit or stand. I still have some stored with my other childhood toys, which I whip out every once and a while and have playtime. Sadly, they don't make these little cuties like they used to. Now, the new Polly Pockets certainly cannot fit in your pocket! Seeing these reminded me of my other favorites:

Oh man, did I love my My Little Ponies. For a while, that's all I played with. I don't know what it is about them, but they are pretty much the cutest thing ever!

And of course, we can't forget Barbie!

Barbie has been around forever, and somehow her parents keep having more children. We started out with Skipper, then twins Todd and Tutti, Stacie, toddler Kelly, then infant Krissy. Sheesh! I think Barbie's best days were the '80s, with her brightly colored dresses, big earrings, and poofy hair. Of course, I am an '80s girl, so that may have influenced my opinion.

What about you? Did you play with Polly Pocket or My Little Pony? Or were you more of a Popples fan? What was your favorite childhood toy? I'd love to hear about it!
