Description

This Angel Pocket toy features two miniature dolls in a compact yellow beauty salon. The toy is made of yellow, violet, white, red, pink, blue, and orange plastic. Both dolls are blonde-haired with brown eyes; the doll wearing a pink outfit has curly hair, while the one in a green outfit has straight hair. Both are Western-style outfits. The bottom half of the compact has a seating area, cash register, hair-cutting area, and sink. The top half has a hair-drying area, cabinets, and tanning bed.

"Angel Pockets" were the Japanese version of the popular "Polly Pocket" toys, invented in Germany in 1983 and produced by Bluebird Toys beginning in 1989 (and purchased by Mattel in 1998).
