Polly Pocket Color Change Makeover Review (Mattel)

What It Is

Polly Pocket Color Change Makeover is a beauty salon playset that incorporates color-change features. Kids can "paint" Polly's nails, change her hair color, and add color to Polly's outfits using cold or warm water. Fill the tub on top with water and fill up the perfume bottle water squirter to squirt Polly's hair and the dresses. Icy cold water will make the hair and dresses change color. Kids can also dip the sponge end of the brush into cold water to create colored streaks in Polly's hair and "paint" the doll's toenails. Warm water will undo the color-change effects.

This two-level playset has moveable stairs, a mirror, a door, and a pop-up beauty supply drawer. The playset comes with four dresses and a robe as well as two pairs of shoes, a variety of spa accessories, and, of course, a 3.5-inch Polly doll. Additional Color Change fashions are sold separately.

Is It Fun?

Polly Pocket fans will enjoy the "magic" of changing the color in Polly's hair, on her dresses, and on her toes. This is a fun playset that lets kids play out a day at the spa with Polly.

Who It’s For

The Color Change Makeover playset is for ages 4 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

It takes five minutes to assemble this playset.

Getting the doll's dresses on and off takes a little time. Younger kids might need help from parents to change Polly's clothes.

The water squirter is sort of hit and miss when it comes to activating the color change effects. If you're having trouble using the water squirter, just dunk the doll or the dress into a cup of cold water. That works every time.

Because this playset involves water, make sure you are playing in an area where it's okay to get wet.
