It’s the collectible doll meets Kinder eggs meets pass-the-parcel, and it’s a craze that is showing no slowdown. LOL Surprise! Dolls harness the enjoyment that kids get by “unboxing” — the idea that the act of unwrapping the gift is essentially the best part.
Each LOL Surprise! Dolls container has multiple layers inside to unwrap, revealing treats like colorful stickers, fashionable doll accessories, messages and, eventually, a baby doll (which will likely not be the doll depicted on any packaging). There are myriad dolls to collect, in “big sister” and “lil sister” sizes, including several limited-edition, rare or especially coveted dolls. The container is usually a ball, but pricier items like purses and cases contain huge jamboree versions, and these are all usable items in their own right.
We’ve rounded up a variety of LOL Surprise! Dolls kits, from expensive, highly sought after versions to the more affordable. Note that due to choking hazards, these are not recommended for children under 5.
These fun little dolls come in individual balls that hide what’s inside until opened. One of your biggest decisions will be whether to purchase a single doll or a set. Sets of the same design include the same dolls, so you don’t want to purchase multiples of the same set. Sets range in size from two to fifty dolls and their accessories.
Most of these dolls are small, but some are miniature. Keep in mind the age of the child you’re buying them for. Children younger than 3 years old shouldn’t have any toy with small parts that could be swallowed – and this is certainly the case with lots of these. We recommend following the age guidelines suggested by the manufacturer.
The products are broken down into series: one, two, three, glitter, and surprise. Within these series you’ll find:
Lil Sisters: These adorable babies each have a personality of their own. From sparkles to winks and hard-to-resist wide eyes, these little dolls are sure to please kids.
Tots: Tots are the regular sized L.O.L. Surprise! Dolls. They each have their own style. Their unique costumes give each their own personality, and provide the opportunity for kids to dress like their favorite doll.
Pets: Cats, dogs, and hamsters dressed ready for fun round out the collection of available figurines. Kids love these little toys that can fit in a pocket and go along on adventures.
Each doll has a rarity level which lets you know how common it is to receive. Some dolls are very hard to find, while you may end up with several of another type because they are more common. This can add to the fun – the pursuit of a gem in the rough.
Fizzy Fun and Printables
Fizz balls are to be dissolved in a sink or cup of water. Once they’ve fizzled out, a collectible fizz charm is revealed. Each fizz ball includes stickers, too.
Kids can also go online to print off posters to make paper dolls and track which L.O.L. Surprise! Dolls they’ve collected.
We purchased a LOL Surprise! Big Surprise in order to find out if it was worth the hype. You can watch the video below to find out what's inside. Here are our thoughts:
Q. Do L.O.L. Surprise! Dolls come in matching sets?
A. The dolls don’t necessarily come in matching sets, but some sets do include a Tot and Lil Sister doll together. Which ones, of course, will still be a surprise.
Q. What are waves and how many dolls are in each one?
A. The dolls are released in series, or “waves”. Each series contains anywhere from 28 to 45 dolls, not including pets or glitter dolls. They can also be grouped by “club”, wherein the dolls are dressed and styled in a similar fashion such as retro, gold, dance, or athletic.
Q. Do I have to buy the charm bracelet for the fizz charms separately?
A. The charm bracelet is hidden in one of the fizz balls just like the charms. Whether or not you find one is based on luck.
