You Could Be Sitting On Thousands Of Pounds If You Own Any Of These Polly Pockets

No matter what era you were born in, chances are you had a Polly Pocket. But if you've managed to keep hold of one of the rarer ones, you could be sitting on a goldmine.

Over on Ebay, some of the older generation compacts and other Polly Pocket products are fetching thousands of pounds, which you might still have stashed away in your attic or old childhood bedroom.

And if you were smart enough to keep your toys still in the plastic packaging as a kid, they could be worth hundreds of pounds more.

This Polly Pocket from 1997 is now classed as vintage, and could fetch you a hefty £1,250 over on Ebay if it's still in its original packaging. Even if it isn't, it still might fetch a bob or two.

Polly's house looked like a pearl-encrusted jewellery box, and comes with a dining area and bedroom, plus some outside space with a deckchair for our Pol.

The Princess Treasures Jewel Secrets Case also had a few hidden features like a swimming pool, and the handle detached into a bracelet for the owner.

This toy came with an impressive five figures to play with, and folded out into a humble abode for Polly and her pals to play in.
