If you search the internet for L.O.L. Surprise! you will see that it is a toy phenomenon that is already hugely popular in the US and good news is that this week it has arrived in the UK. Even better news for my doll loving daughter is that we have been sent two to see what L.O.L. Surprise is all about.
L.O.L Surprise! is a new collectible which has seven layers, each with its own surprise, giving children not only a great toy but an exciting experience unwrapping each layer. First layer gives you a secret message, the second emoji stickers and the third is tucked away in a little bag, a special little cup for your character to drink out of. On we go, with the next layer giving footwear, the fifth layer is an outift, the sixth an accessory and last but not least, the final surprise is a cute three-inch doll. Each layer is easy for little hands to manage and my daughter didn’t need any help opening her surprises.
The plastic pod that your doll comes in, doubles up as a bathtub, somewhere for your doll to hangout, a stand or a purse complete with a handle for you to carry your doll around in. So a complete play experience all in one.
The dolls themselves each have their own personalities. They are colourful, cute and chic. There are 45 different dolls to collect each with their own style, outfits and accessories. The dolls can drink water from the bottle and cry when squeezed and some dolls have a special surprise feature when placed in icy water. We are the proud owners of M.C. Swag complete with baseball jacket and cap along with Super B.B. who will save the world in her cape and boots.
My daughter absolutely loved the unwrapping process, she said it was like her birthday all over again. We unwrapped two L.O.L. Surprise! dolls and she loves them both and the accessories that came with them.
It is all surprises and I have never seen a toy like this before and I love the idea of unwrapping different accessories with each layer. L.O.L. Surprise! dolls are fun to open and fun to play with too. The RRP is £7.99 so a perfect pocket-money price and these would make an amazing party gift too.
Judging by the squeals of delight that my daughter made before, during and after unwrapping her L.O.L. Surprise! dolls today, we have just started our collection and more will be added when she gets the chance. She loves little things and these dolls will fit in well with other small sets that she plays with too which is always a good thing.
