When I found out about this set, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. It’s surprisingly small — I thought it’d be around the size of those water tank games for kids, but it’s about the size of a coffee mug — and has a delightful little color palette. It depicts a beachside diving shop with upstairs bedroom and bathroom, a patio table with umbrella, a beach chair parked under a sweet palm tree, and the main attraction: an undersea kingdom that allows Polly and friends to swim when filled with water. The squeeze bulb on the side of the tank brings the little grotto to life.
Mine is not complete, however: it’s missing is the dolphin of its namesake. But whatever, I still managed to have more fun than a grown-ass man should legally have when playing with Polly Pocket.
