Every '90s kid knows that Polly Pocket was the toy to have growing up. You could play with little Polly and her compact Pollyville anywhere. Now, your favorite childhood toy could be good news for your, well, pockets: Some vintage Polly Pockets are currently on sale for thousands of dollars.
Created in 1989 by Chris Wiggs for his daughter Kate, Polly Pocket dolls were less than an inch in height. Kids could easily carry Polly’s entire compact worlds, which were meant to mimic their mom’s makeup packaging, according to Time. Apparently, these older versions are back in style in Australia. On eBay AU, a vintage BlueBird Polly Pocket is on sale for $5,000 AUD, which is $3,344 USD. Still in its original packaging from 1992, the special edition Polly Pocket is part of the Party’N Play Collection.
Other versions of the toy are also listed with a high price tag: A pink Polly Pocket Princess Polly Travel Clock from 1993 is on sale for $1,800 AUD (about $1,200 USD). While it’s been used previously, it still works—all it needs is one AA battery. For $600 AUD, you can buy a vintage Polly Pocket BlueBird Carnival Queen wrist locket in its original packaging from 1996. And for $550 AUD, you can purchase a 1996 Polly Pocket BlueBird Wedding Day necklace.
While one of the highly priced toys has been used, the rest of them are in original packaging. So if you actually had fun with your Polly Pockets, chances are you won’t be able to sell them for a ton of money. That's okay though, because, as a kid, no amount of money could've stopped me from playing with my pa-la-la-la Polly.
