A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this website.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that PollyPocket.com includes a plethora of interactive games and activities about music, math, finding hidden pictures, and taking new adventures. Kids will enjoy watching the short videos and matching musical notes. The site also heavily promotes the Polly Pocket line of dolls and accessories. The home page alone displays two prominent links encouraging users to browse the catalog of toys. Links in bold print entice kids to connect to other Mattel sites.

What's it about?
Is it any good?
The interactive games on PollyPocket.com encourage creativity and aim to stimulate the minds of younger Polly fans. The videos are entertaining, but without much substance. The biggest downside of the site is that in addition to obviously pushing for kids to buy Polly toys, Mattel also uses so much of each page's real estate to advertise their many links to other toy sites -- not shocking for a toy company, but still a bit much for Polly Pocket-age kids.
