The term POP originally derives from an abbreviation of the word “popular”.  When it comes to music, POP is a genre which originated in the Western world during the 50’s and 60’s deriving from rock and roll.

As a genre, pop music is extremely eclectic, often borrowing elements from other styles including urban, dance, rock,Latin and country; nonetheless, there are core elements which define pop.

But what if POP becomes the most adorb toy collection?
