What is L.O.L. Surprise!?

- Categories : Blog

They are not the usual dolls that you come to know about from the past. Welcome to the world of multi-layered surprises!

Launched in 2016 by MGAE, L.O.L. Surprise! has become one of the biggest toy brands of this generation. The main LOL Surprise line pertains to the series of collectable dolls that have all kinds of fun surprises including accessories. LOL Surprise dolls or LOL dolls come wrapped inside colourfully designed balls with different level of layers. You need to unwrap each of the layers until you reach the centre to reveal the surprise doll. The acronym L.O.L. stands for “Li'l Outrageous Littles.”

Suitable for kids aged 5 years and older, these collectable mini dolls come with various accessories, stickers, and other fun surprises.

Why Are LOL Surprise Dolls So Fun to Play with?

Each LOL Surprise doll has layers of surprises, and each of the surprises will vary from one ball to another. Some of the surprise items you will encounter are collectable stickers, shoes for the doll, a secret message, the outfit for the doll, and other doll accessories

LOL Surprise dolls are released in series. That means they will come out in different but newer versions over time. The timing of their releases vary. For example, half of the new releases will be released in just a month while the other half will come out a few months after the first release.

Some LOL dolls change colours when dipped in hot or cold water. They may also change their designs or react in a funny but cute manner like crying, spitting, or tinkling.

Children, especially the little girls, love and adore L.O.L. Surprise! dolls. What’s great about these dolls is that their packaging, meaning the balls, all look practically alike but the excitement begins when you unwrap the ball layer by layer. Each layer will show you a surprise until you reach the centre which contains the main surprise doll. You won’t know what doll you’re gonna get until it’s revealed when you have completed the unwrapping of all the layers entirely.

The unwrapping is what makes it so much fun for the little kids. That’s why they are enthused to collect more L.O.L Surprise! dolls. They won’t stop until they finally find the character that's still missing in their collection.

The L.O.L. Surprise! O.M.G.
