Starlight Castle

I'm a BIG toy lover. I'm constantly rummaging through bins at flea markets and thrift shops for colorful plastic and vinyl and my shelves show it. I have a very special place in my heart for any toys from the 80s and 90s, especially toys that I grew up with.

This Polly Pocket Starlight Castle was my favorite when I was in Elementary school! Actually, I don't remember if it was mine or my sisters, but either way it was in constant rotation with my other favorites. I was browsing on Ebay the other night and found one in near perfect condition and with all the little characters (even the swan!) for 30 bucks. That may seem like a lot, but honestly it's not a bad price for the condition that it's in.

Oh, it also lights up. Just the coolest.


  1. oh WOW!! i love how the stars light up. I useed to adore polly pocket too and had a few of them when I was young but sadly they're all gone now! I don't know why they stopped making them (health and safety of small pieces maybe?) becasue they were so good!!!

    1. Looking back on it, they were kind of a safety hazard...but all the newer ones are big and ugly. Why is it that modern toys always suck in comparison?

  2. I had one of these when I was a kid and absolutely adored it. Polly Pocket was amazing although my Mum got sick of sucking them up in the vacuum cleaner lol.



Leave some love?
