Pop to become exclusive free to air home of Polly Pocket in UK

Published on: 20th January 2023

Pop, the UK’s largest commercial children’s channel, is to become the exclusive free TV broadcast home of Polly Pocket from Saturday 4th February 2023.

The Polly Pocket series tells the story of an adventurous 11-year-old girl, and follows Polly and her best friends as she embraces her pocket-sized powers and finds the upside of shrinking is fun and adventure.

Polly Pocket’s hometown of Littleton doesn’t provide her with the adventures she craves – at every turn she’s told she’s ‘too little’ – and she dreams of a life where she can do exactly what she wants to do. Her world is flipped upside down when she discovers that her grandma’s locket holds the magic power of shrinking.

For centuries, this mystical locket has been passed down through the Pocket family and its unique power allowed each heir to make big difference for humankind. From the Pocket woman who helped Newton with his gravitational law (by thumping him on the head with an apple) to Polly’s Grandma, Penelope, whose tiny manoeuvring helped get Apollo 11 to the moon, the stories reveal that being small has big advantages. The legacy of the locket is now in the hands of Polly.

Polly Pocket will air on Pop from Saturday 4th February and will also be available to watch on catch-up on the Pop Player.

Pop is available on Freeview 206, Sky 614, Virgin 736 or Freesat 603.
