Alternatives to Polly Pocket

I know, I know, there are no such things as boys' and girls' toys and I'd really rather not get into the problematic genderisation of toys, but - please can anyone recommend any toys which have some of the features of Polly Pocket (intricate little worlds, moving / folding parts, all folding up into a carry case) but which are rather less aggressively pink?

Thank you!

There are lots of retro Mighty Max toys on eBay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mighty-Max-Doom-Zones-Complete-Playsets-Bluebird-Toys-All-100-Complete-/283197306025?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49292

Bit £££ though.

I hadn't heard of them but after a quick Google they are just the ticket. Thank you.

Teeny Weeny families on eBay - very similar, maybe a bit dated now but lovely and not too girly

Lego Friends has nice little figures, but obviously doesn't fold up.

The figs and bits are very portable though, and fix on to normal Lego.

Lego has a range of polly pocket type Disney sets that are in the shape of a little book, they are around £18 in Argos

Here is a picture, they have a few related to various Disney films.

Timber Tots are great although they’re aimed at younger children. There’s a hazelnut house and apple shop that “close” into a neat portable toy.
