Do You Remember Playing With These As A Kid? They Look Totally Different Now!

Every 90s Girl had or dreamed about having a Polly Pocket. A plastic little case that opened up to reveal a miniature doll house for your little peg people to play in. They were honestly 6 inches big MAX. The little figures were only a couple centimeters tall and had a circular base so you could stand them up in various places in the little case.

They were so popular, practically everyone remembers having one or at the very least, knew some who did. These little dolls came in a variety of different cases that each had their own theme. You could even get some that were based on your favorite movie. Imaginations seemed to be a lot more powerful back then!

Polly Pocket got quite the makeover in the last decade or so, she is pretty much unrecognizable compared to her old self. Which do you think is better?

This is what the original Polly Pocket looked like:

As you can see, she has grown in size a fair bit. Also, they make these jelly-like clothes that you can switch out so you can change her outfit. They still have some Disney versions like they used to, but even those are crazy different.

Now:

Can you believe how different they are? I don't know why they are still called Polly Pockets, they are not even the same thing!

What do you think about the new versions? Do you prefer the originals or are you okay with these new ones?

Let's be honest for a second, it's the internet, there is no one here to judge you. When you were growing up, what did you care the most about? Was it your family? No, that's just what you said near Christmas so you would get good gifts. Was it your friends? No, they weren't always there for you when you needed them. The thing we all cared about more than anything was our elaborate and extensive toy collections. Sure, does that make us all a little bit materialistic and selfish? Probably. But those are the facts and there's not much

13 Dreadful Life Lessons You Learned While Playing 13 Dead End Drive That Haunt You To This Day

Listen, board games were a very important part of our childhood. Dream Phone was played almost every weekend, Fireball Island was played on those days when you had the energy to set it up, but there was one game that trumped them all. 13 Dead End Drive was what happened if you mixed Clue with Mouse Trap, and also added in some good old-fashioned sabotage. The object of the game was simple: Survive. The backstory of the game (not that anyone really cared about that) was that a wealthy woman died and now there is a big fight over who

Fireball Island Is Coming Back, And It's Bigger And Better Than Ever Before

We all became completely obsessed with the board game Fireball Island when we were kids. The game has become one of those relics from our past that is now worth a good chunk of change. The board game itself is listed for hundreds of dollars online and while I love the game, I don't know that I could justify paying that much for it.I mean, it's a classic, but I just can't justify it. Luckily for me, I won't have to. Because even though we all complain that everything old comes back, this time it's actually a good thing.
