Polly Pocket is the main and titular character of the Polly Pocket franchise. She is a rich girl who loves adventure and fun. She always tries to make each day the "best day ever". She was originally voiced by Tegan Moss who also voices Penny Gadget and Holly Jollimore, then by Sue Thorpe.
Currently she is voiced by Emily Tennant.
Along with Barbie and Monster High she is considered one of the most popular heroines of Mattel. She and Barbie are actually in the same universe, as scenes from My Scene were shown in one of the movies.
In the Korean-Canadian animated films from 2004 to 2006, Polly is portrayed as a student at a high school. She has the best friends Lila, Ana, Lea, Shani, Crissy and Kerstie, together they form the band "Polly and the Pockets" which Polly is the lead singer. She always uses the advantage of their money to help their friends on their needs but is envied by her classmate Beth who hates Polly because she's the most popular student in school, accusing her of being a spoiled girl and creating plans to get her away from her friends. Her parents are very busy and are never seen with her at home being under the care of her faithful butler Samuel. She has a cousin named Pia, that becomes a member of the band in the second film.
In the first film, Polly helps Lila to do her homework to avoid being reproved in the studies, while Beth, Evie and Tori plan to ruin it. She and her friends travel to a South Pacific island where they witness a lunar eclipse themselves, go to a water park, and together save a dolphin that was trapped between the formation of the rocks on the beach. When Lila's part of the project is ruined when Beth gave her a camera with used film in it, resulting in double exposures, Polly saves the day by having her use paintings made by Ana. This gives their project an A+, and their band finally performs at the school dance.
2 Cool at the Pocket Plaza
Polly and her friends spend their vacation at the Pocket Plaza while her dad on a trip to Reykjavik, Iceland, in Scandinavia, leaving her to present the grand opening in his place. While preparing for an evening benefit concert with her band Polly gets a visit from Pia, her cousin from London. Realizing that Pia had a very boring life being overprotected by her aunt, Ms. Throckmorton, she decides to switch places with Pia for her to enjoy the fun of the hotel. Ms. Throckmorton doesn't agree with American culture and hates Pia not acting like a true Brit, and after mistaking Polly for Pia, Beth convinces her to kidnap Polly, leaving Pia to deliver the speech for her which Polly reads over the phone. When she is forced to hang up, Pia saves the day by improvising a speech of her own, revealing it doesn't matter whether you're American or British, and it's the thought that counts. Ms. Throckmorton eventually realizes there's nothing wrong with being in a band and lets Pia be independent, as well as apologizing to Polly for kidnapping her. That evening, the concert goes on without any trouble, and Pia joins Polly's band and admits this was the best weekend ever.
