Polly Pocket Party Ideas

Every little girl loves her Polly Pockets! There is a Polly Pocket themed toy for everything! So why not surprise your little one with this Groovy Party Plan.
Invitations: Make your own Polly Pocket Invitations using the daisy in the logo. Using thick cardboard, cut out a template of a daisy. Use the template to trace and cut out the flower shapes onto brightly coloured orange or pink construction paper. Write all the party details right on the backside or use your computer to type the script and then paste. Use the script "Please come to my Totally Cool and Fab-Tastic Birthday Party!" If you do not plan to enclose in an envelope, you can use a large pom pom as the flower center. For some added flair, attach the flower invite with a piece of ribbon to a lip gloss ring, bottle of nail polish or a piece of fun costume jewelery. If you prefer to have the invite in an envelope, use a glitter or puff paint pen to trace the edges and to make the flower center. When dry, place in an envelope and seal with a Polly Pocket sticker.
Decorations: Create a festive mood using "Polly World" as your inspiration. Re-create Club Groove. Decorate with plenty of balloons and streamers in neon pink, green, orange and purple. Use large construction paper flowers that imitate the invitation to decorate the wall. Hang Christmas lights around the room. Make use of any bean bag chairs, flower pillows and Polly Pocket toys and figures around the room. Decorate the entrance with a brightly coloured poster sign that say "Club Groove" and a tinsel or bead curtain. Add a real funky groove by Tie Dying 3 or 4 old bedsheets with the Mod neon colours. Use 1 as a tablecover and the rest as some retro furniture covers. The final piece would be a disco ball or some kind of disco light.
Craft Activities: Make your own Best Friends Bracelets. You can visit your local craft store for some pre-made kits or just simply purchase a roll of bracelet cord leather, a pack of clasps and a bag of stringing beads. The guests can come up with their own pattern, use letter beads to spell their name or spell "Best Friends"," Friends Forever" or just "BFF." Another neat craft would be for them to tie dye a t-shirt or canvass bag. You should be an expert by now because of all those sheets. Here are some simple tie dying instructions ~ What You Need: various colors of fabric dye (Rit), rubber bands, rubber gloves, marbles, tap water, garments such as t-shirts, cotton shorts, old jeans, etc. What You Do: Begin by rubberbanding your garment according to the design you wish to achieve. Prepare dye according to package directions. Be sure to wear rubber gloves to protect your hands! Please take the proper safety precautions recommended. Once your garment is ready, place in the dye for at least 15-20 minutes. The longer the garment remains in the dye, the darker and deeper the color will become. Remove from the dye and rinse according to package directions, usually in cold running water. Ring out garment until water runs clear. Carefully remove rubber bands and marbles to reveal your new design! Please visit for full details and some amazing pics -http://www.kinderart.com/textiles/easytiedye.shtml
Games: Funky Dress Up - Before the party, gather a garbage bag full of clothes. Funny, old, retro clothes, hats shoes and accessories. The wackier the better! Gather the girls in a circle, play some disco music and pass around a Polly Doll. Whoever is holding the Polly Doll when the music stops (your controlling the music) must reach in and pull out 1 article of clothing and put it on. Continue on until every girl has at least 4 items on. Its hilarious and not to mention a great photo opportunity. Polly Truth or Consequence - Have your Polly party pals confess to a secret! Prepare about 2 or 3 silly and innocent questions per guest on slips of paper before the party. Questions like "Have you ever failed a test?" or "Have you ever eaten a piece of food that fell on the ground?" will keep the guests laughing. Those who don't fess up must face the consequences and do such things as "dance the twist" or "put their pants on backwards." Have them choose their instructions from slips of paper in a hat or some kind of container.
Menu: Have lots of chips, pretzels and tacos in bowls spread out around "Club Groove." Dinner time should be something simple. Whatever is the Birthday girls favorite. Perhaps Mini Pizza or chicken nuggets & fries served out of stadium cups. One thing that is a must is a smoothie bar. Polly and their friends love smoothies! A simple smoothie recipe is 1 cup orange juice, 1 Scoop frozen vanilla yogurt, 3 frozen strawberries and half of a frozen banana. Double as necessary. Play with the fruit combinations or give the guests a choice. Frozen blueberries are a great option. Cupcakes are a nice choice for this party. Let your child choose the flavor and the icing colours. More than one icing really makes a cool display. You can decorate the cupcakes with a Polly Pocket cupcake ring or place a Gerbera Daisy on each cupcake. You can buy bunches of them at any craft store or dollar store and they come in a range of bright colours.
Most Importantly: Make sure leave some time for the guests to just relax by listening to disco music, playing with the Polly toys, dancing if they wish or just watching the "Polly World" movie. They will think they are so cool being able to groove out in the very own Retro Lounge!
