Polly Pocket Summer Sets

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Polly Pocket. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

Polly Pocket Summer SetsPouring water in the waterfall.

I was thrilled to review two adorable Polly Pocket sets!  They are so much fun to set up and play with.  I think I enjoyed them just as much, if not more than the kiddos.  They have adorable colors, lots of movable parts, and inspire imaginative play!  The girls especially loved the zip-line and the fun movable suctioned cup pieces.

Polly SlideIt can use real water!  I would have LOVED this as a kid!

Polly WaterfallCheck out the cute waterfall!

My favorite set, the Zip ‘n Splash Playset, is LESS than $10! It’s now only $9.59 and was regularly $16.99. This set includes a Polly doll with color changing hair {I know! How fun!}, a monkey, and a puppy. Super cute!

Polly TreehouseBoth of these sets were put together by a ten year old so they’re not too complicated.

Polly Tree House WindowThese cute flowers in the window are suction cupped on and can be moved anywhere.  So cute!

The Treehouse Playset was the other one that we reviewed and it was equally cute. It’s now on sale for $11.99 {originally $19.99} OR you could get ALL of the fun wall party playsets on sale for only $47.99 instead of the original $74.99. I really loved the built in slide on this one and the kids loved the translucent suction cup pieces {bird, cups, flowers, and so on}. We only have the one piece but I think it would be a lot of fun to have all of them attached to our wall and play with the zip-lines in between pieces.

Polly Pocket sets are not only a great gift to buy for your own kids but they make tremendous birthday gifts too!  Are you thinking about  who all you could buy a set for?  Good, because I have a great discount through July 7th where you can shop right here on my site, on this post, but you’ll be shopping through Amazon.  This is a pretty awesome discount too!  I’m very excited to share it with you.  Update: It’s now after the 7th and the prices have gone up a little but are still cheaper than regular retail.

Disney’s Toy Story Zing ‘Ems Review

Toy Story Zing Ems

When Disney contacted me to review one of their latest toys I jumped at the chance.  When I got the package in the mail I was a little puzzled by what exactly Zing ‘Ems were.  After playing around with the toy myself I quickly found out why they were called that….they zip, ride, and zing along!  Disney phrases it much better though, they say,

“Zing ‘Ems are an action-packed, completely new way to play with everyone’s favorite Toy Story characters, and the Rocket Rumble playset is one of Buzz Lightyear’s most action-filled adventures yet. The galaxy’s greatest Space Ranger needs your help to take on Zurg (figure sold separately). Use the attack launcher to send Buzz zinging and zooming around the playset, crashing through the deadly Zurgbot and tumbling through the treacherous asteroid field. Succeed, and it’s time to take on Zurg! Will you break through the obstacles and save the day? Or will you be defeated by the asteroid field and Zurgbot? Includes play set and 1 exclusive Buzz Lightyear Zing’ems figure. Collect all your favorite Zing’ems figures, each sold separately.”

Check out how cute Buzz Lightyear is!


Baby with Toy Story Zing Ems

My little girl loved playing with all of the pieces but she especially loved Woody.  He’s always been my favorite too!


Baby and Toy Story Zing Ems

While she’s not big enough yet to pull the lever back that sends them flying (as you’ll see demonstrated in a video later on) she enjoyed pushing the button that made them jump from spot to spot and of course she loved driving them around the track herself.  And around the entire house.  I don’t mind though, I love these little guys.


Woody and Buzz Zing 'Ems

Check em out!  Woody and Buzz, the best of friends!  Each figure rolled easily along with just the slightest push and they always popped back up to standing position.  They kind of remind me of the old Weebles I played with as a kid but better because these roll!

I made a quick  YouTube video to show you exactly how the Toy Story Zing ‘Ems works.  I hope you enjoy this short little YouTube Toy Story Zing ‘Ems demonstration!

You can purchase Toy Story Rocket Rumble Playset & Figure Assortment set for yourself your kids at  Right now they are selling for $21.99 but as you know, prices could change at anytime!
