Polly Pocket's New Look...


A couple of weeks ago when Noli spent the night, you may remember that we conducted the Great Glitter Explosion Experiment.... 

and I left you with these parting words....

Later on we played Polly Pocket
and Polly got a new makeover the next day!

But you'll have to wait for another time to find out just what happened to Miss Polly and her friends....

Glitter could be involved.....
just sayin'

♥♥♥


Well, glitter was definitely involved! In fact, I'm still sweeping glitter off the floor! Little sparklies catch my eye when the light is just right. But what's a girl to do if she can't have a little glitter in her life?



Innocently playing....
little did I know what she was up to!



Hmmm, getting the sneaky look



Uh oh, she got the glitter and a glue stick...
I just barely got a piece of paper under her 
(rather than my placemat!)



Rolling in the glitter



As you can see, the placemat didn't escape the glitter!



Oh no! I've fallen in the glitter and I can't get up!



Polly is the Glitter Girl  rock star  : )



No Pocket girl is exempt, or Lego horses



or Ponies -- 
Rainbow Dash is now sporting some glittery face and wing paint!



Noli thought that was the best glitter gluing EVER!!



 Now, one more thing concerning Polly Pocket -- if you or your kids grew up in the 80s, you may remember Polly Pocket looking like this....



Teeny tiny Pollys, about an inch tall



Their houses opened up to reveal teeny tiny furniture



or teeny tiny wagons and pets

 These were a couple of sets that I got for Noli last Christmas -- and not for a teeny tiny price either! I think they totaled about $35.00 -- a vintage shop on Etsy. It was still new in the package and that was neat! Noli was big into Polly Pocket and Stephanie wanted to get her some like she had played with, so we each got her a set. Good thing they weren't that expensive when Stephanie was playing with them!!

Every girl needs a little glitter - I'm not sure that every floor needs a little glitter, but it could add a little sparkle to the day!

I will have to show Amara Noli's creative work! Don't you just love looking down and seeing glitter? I noticed some on one of the dining room chairs this morning from when Amara made her back to school sign, which of course had Rainbow Dash on it and lots of glitter! We are lucky Grandmas!

The glitter is too much fun! It put a smile on my face. It's a good thing that Pollys weren't that expensive when I was playing with them either.

Ooh, I love those miniature Pollys! I loved playing "house" as a kid :)
Noli looks so sweet as she concentrates on getting the glitter on her dolls!!

Every time you find a speck of stray glitter you can think of this lovely memory! Looks like great fun was had that day!
