In 1998, Mattel redesigned Polly Pocket. The new doll was larger, with a more lifelike appearance than the original dolls. She had a straight ponytail, rather than the curly bob hairstyle used previously. The following year, Mattel also introduced “Fashion Polly!,” which used the same characters from the new Polly Pocket (Polly, Lea, Shani, Lila, etc. ), but they came in the form of 3 3⁄4 inches (9. 5 cm) plastic jointed dolls. They gave a new spin on fashion dolls; instead of traditional cloth clothing, Polly Pockets used unique “Polly Stretch” garments, created by Genie Toys, rubbery plastic clothes that could be put on the dolls and removed. There are also some boy dolls (Rick, Steven, etc. ). Like Barbie and Bratz dolls, they also star in Polly Pocket movies, books, and sites.
