Memories From Long Ago.

The other day, my husband and I were reminiscing about past Christmases. I started getting all excited because it reminded me of my favorite Christmas. The year I got the mega Pollyville Polly Pocket playset. It came with 10 Polly Pockets, and 28 people. It was kind of a big deal back then! 
While, taking a stroll down memory lane, I started to feel very empty inside. My girls wanted to see the Polly Pockets I had growing up, but I had none to show them. As a matter of fact, I have none of my toys from childhood. I had a mother who never kept anything, but would throw it away the first chance she got  Sad, but true.

I started thinking about all 50 to 60 Polly Pockets i had. Then, I remembered the very first one I ever got. It was a 1989, yellow, square-shaped nursery. Oh, what I wouldn’t give to have these toys back in my possession!

That’s when I decided to check Ebay. I got really lucky, and found the the very first Polly Pocket I owned. The best part….it had all the people!! I decided to buy it, and it was the best $30 I ever spent!

When the package arrived, I decided to go to Facebook live and record my girls’ reaction to seeing this 27 year old toy that I use to play with. Their reaction……PRICELESS! The loved it! They were amazed and impressed!!

Now, I’m on a mission. I’m going to collect all the Polly Pockets I ever owned. I don’t care how long it takes, I will do it!!  Wish me luck!!
