Mattel

We’re always hearing that good things come in small packages, well this has never been truer in the case of one of our all-time top retro passions….Polly Pocket!

Getting the latest set, collection or accessory was just about as exciting as things could get growing up…for us at least! Polly Pocket was a small perfect world you could take anywhere with you, whether it’s a car trip (boooooriiiiinnng), to a friends or even your grandparents which would give you the chance to at any point dive into Polly’s world and create an unlimited amount of weird and wonderful scenarios. A small taste of heaven!

Well! Part of our job responsibility here at Truffle Towers is bring these much loved classics back into your lives all these years later through the medium of awesome and 100% official vintage clothing and gifts which is juuuuust what we’ve gone and done!

Reminisce about this childhood favourite in true TruffleShuffle style with this super cute exclusive Polly Pocket TShirt!

Not only that! Snuggle up on those chilly days in this fab sweater too! Perfect for all you Polly fans out there.

So which sets did you have growing up (or still have!)? Shout them out below.

Barbie can fix your PC!

by Lucy Smith on February 18, 2010


Barbie, ‘the’ iconic fashion doll of nearly every little girl since 1959 has a new career — as a computer engineer!
For the first time, Mattel took an online vote, asking people to select the Barbie doll’s 125th career by choosing between architect, computer engineer, environmentalist, news anchor or surgeon.
“As a computer engineer, Barbie will show girls that women can turn their ideas into realities that have a direct and positive impact on people’s everyday lives in this exciting and rewarding career,” she said. Mattel polled fans on Facebook and Twitter for Barbie’s next big career change.
However, while the popular vote went to computer engineer, Mattel noted that girls selected news anchor as their favored career for the doll that, over the years, has been an aerobics instructor, nurse, flight attendant, NASCAR driver and an ambassador.
The girls’ choice wasn’t disregarded. News Anchor Barbie will be the doll’s next career.
The toy company, which unveiled both new career-minded dolls at the 2010 American International Toy Fair last weekend, noted that they are both expected to hit store shelves very soon.
Computer Engineer Barbie is going geek chic with a binary code patterned T-shirt. She’s also decked out with a pink laptop, a smartphone, a Bluetooth headset, and trendy eye wear.
To add to the idea of being a computer engineer, the doll comes with a code that unlocks exclusive online game content on Barbie.com.
And for all you nerds out there that are wondering what the binary code on the laptop screen says. It says “Barbie Barbie Barbie” in ASCI.
