Pop Culture Homes Reimagined As Polly Pockets

Polly Pocket was first designed by Chris Wiggs in 1983 for his daughter Kate. Using a makeup powder compact, he fashioned a small house for the tiny doll. Bluebird Toys of Swindon, England, licensed the concept and the first Polly Pocket toys appeared in stores in 1989. Mattel held a distribution arrangement with Bluebird Toys for Polly Pocket items in the early 1990s. In 1998, while production lulled, Bluebird Toys endured multiple hostile takeover attempts until Mattel finally purchased them later that year. The original Polly Pocket toys were plastic cases which opened to form a dollhouse or other playset with Polly Pocket figurines less than an inch tall. 

With this in mind, The ToyZone has reimagined six different fictional homes from television and film as Polly Pockets. Czech artist Jan Koudela created the CGI rendering to make the scenes as realistic as possible. The reimagined homes are from Stranger Things, Friends, The Simpsons, Lord of the Rings, The Shining, and The Royal Tenenbaums.
