Event description

We are excited to present to you a Hearts Collide Event...


How would you like to spend a day with toy collectors from around the world, in a quaint European Village reminiscent of one of the most beloved toys of all time?

Sometimes, in our darkest moments, a great light is born. During the pandemic, a group of collectors found hope and community in an unlikely place — their mutual love of the Vintage Polly Pocket® Toyline! Slowly, with her small plastic hands, Polly® began to knit friendships that spanned the globe, and warmed the hearts of many.

And now that little girl is turning 35, and her friends have decided to celebrate her! So hop in a hot air balloon! Grab a jet ski! Or ride your Palomino Pony to Solvang, CA, USA on July 24, 2024 for a once in a lifetime chance to celebrate life, friendship, and fun!


You will begin your day exploring the world renowned village of Solvang, CA, filled with beautiful shops, delectable treats, and wondrous sites! 

At 1:30pm, come on over to the Ballroom at the Craft House, only a few blocks from town, and check in to the event!

You’ll hear from Guest Speakers like Barbara Evans, creator of, and Maude Campbell, author of the upcoming book “The Legacy of Polly Pocket®”. There will be several other surprises, and a VERY special guest, but you’re going to have to attend to find out who!

At 5pm, we’ll begin a lovely catered dinner, with games and prizes in abundance. At 7:30pm, guests are required to leave the venue, but the party isn’t over yet! You’ve only got one hour to put on your best Disco Party dancing attire, and return to the Ballroom at 8:30pm! There you will dance the night away with friends and fine desserts, where you will participate in the world's first ever Polly Pocket® Costume Contest!

Why Solvang, CA, and What’s the Weather Like?

The Polly Pocket® Toyline began in the United Kingdom, and was later licensed by Mattel®, headquartered in Los Angeles, CA.

Solvang honors both of these entities, as it is a European town only hours from Mattel, and LAX International Airport. If you love the Vintage Polly Pocket® Toyline, you will love Solvang, CA!

Solvang can be warm during the summer, so dress for heat while you explore the town. The event, however, will be entirely inside an air-conditioned space, so no worries there! It’s going to be an 8 hour event with a lot of sitting until the dance party, so dress to impress!
