- Adorkable: All three of the main characters in the 2018 series fall into this:
- Polly falls into this because of the empathy and sweetness she has for others, combined with a penchant for making inventions and the cheesy puns she makes.
- Lila falls into this whenever she gets excited about something she's passionate about something she loves, particularly with fashion.
- Shani is a bit nerdy and socially awkward, yet she's also very lovable and is such a geek for science fiction.
- Fanon Discontinuity: Fans of the older, more compact versions made by Bluebird don't care about the larger-sized Polly figures (i.e., anything made by Mattel) that transformed her into Barbie Jr. The 2010's line (which focuses on a mix of both types of toy) has been much better received.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: The short-lived Cutants spinoff line has several characters that wouldn't look out of place in the Shopkins universe, which came out several years later and made by a completely different company.
- Moe: Many people in the 2018 series falls into this, but Polly, Lila, and Shani stand out due to having many adorable moments and a strong friendship with each other.
YMMV / Polly Pocket
