fun for boys and girls,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Polly Pocket Playtime Doll Pet Shop (Toy)
I initially bought this as a gift for my niece when I saw it as a lightning deal, but when it was delivered my 5-year old son begged to play with it! I relented, and soon my 7-year old son was playing with it as well. They were drawn to all the moving parts: swing, trap door, pet food dispenser, etc. Due to the very small parts I decided it wouldn't make a great gift for a three-year old anyway (not due to choking hazard, but more just being able to play without losing them).
Despite appearing very "girly", my boys love giving the pets baths, sending Polly down the slide, and especially getting food out of the dispensers. It's cute, well-built, and encourages open-ended play. This toy now occupies a special place in my son's closet (to make sure baby brother doesn't get ahold of it) and I'm looking for another Polly Pocket set to get him for Christmas!

Thanks for posting this. It tickled my heart. I remember my boys having fun playing with their sisters Sylvanian Families and Flinstone's Playground as well as their own GI Joe figures. It's just all about having fun. My grandson's now get googlie-eyed over my grand-daughter's Littlest Pet Shop play sets. Wondering if you ever did get your son another Polly Pocket play set.

Thank you! And yes, I did get him another set for Christmas. :) It doesn't get much play from him anymore, but his little brother, now 3, enjoys it!
