PollyWorld is a 2006 direct-to-video animated film from Universal Studios, based on the Polly Pocket toy line. It is the third film preceding Polly's First Movie (also known as Polly Pocket: Lunar Eclipse) and 2 Cool at the Pocket Plaza, and the only one that is feature-length. Was released on DVD in November 14, 2006.
Polly Pocket and her four friends get to be part of their favorite TV show, 'Roll Like That', which puts teams of five through several challenges to win money for the charity of their choice.
As the challenges begin, however, Polly learns that her father is engaged to a woman called Lorelei, who secretly wants to get Polly out of the way. Polly and her friends also have to try to get past scheming Beth, who teams up with Lorelei to get Polly to be sent to borading school.
Faced with the prospect of losing everything she loves, her friends, family, and home, Polly decides to make this weekend the best ever.
Why It Rocks
- Good plot, as well handling with the topic of remarriage very well, showing Lorelei, Polly’s father’s fiancée and almost became Polly’s stepmother, who is supposed to be a good person, actually is a bad person who wanted to send Polly to boarding school.
- Great voice acting.
- Nice animation.
- Awesome songs like 'Rock This Town' and the end credits song 'Rock U Now'.
- We get to see the first time Polly's father John Pocket, who later returned on the BTSW, now as Mr. Pocket.
- Beth finally tastes his own medicine being humilated live on TV to trying take Polly's school popularity in the previous two films and in this film, and teaming up with Lorelei to getting sent Polly to boarding school, causing John Pocket to end his engagement to Lorelei as a result.
The Only Bad Quality
- It was the only full-length Polly Pocket film to be made. No films were made after PollyWorld since then.
The film deserves major kudos for incorporating a topic such as remarriage into the plot, but based on the questionable actions of Polly's stepmother, who isn't as nice as she pretends to be, parents in a new or impending marriage way want to view those parts first in order to evaluate whether this film might trigger some painful emotions in their own kids.

- Ana from the previous two films is replaced by Crissy in this film, this is the first appearance of Crissy in a Polly Pocket related animated production and also the only appearence of Crissy in the three films of Polly Pocket.
