If you’re just catching onto the L.O.L. Surprise! Doll trend, welcome to Hell, Mom. Hehe — totally kidding! L.O.L. Surprise! Dolls are glittery, sparkly, imaginative play toys that have kids peeling back layer upon layer of packaging to unearth stylish surprises — glittery shoes, tiny purses, and more fun accessories that kids ages 8+ are obsessed with collecting. (We promise they’re cooler than all of those singing baby shark toys.)And since we’re still stuck in quarantine mode, now’s the best possible time for your child to get into L.O.L.’s. Plus — L.O.L. has new holiday surprise stuff that you can start shopping for now.
Why? Because if they’re bored of playing outdoors in the inflatable kiddie pool you just got them, letting them back inside to unwrap a brand-new L.O.L. will keep them busy (at least for a while). And also because there’s a new Limited Edition L.O.L. Suprise! Doll who is totally with the times — Frontline Hero Doll who comes with goggles, a lab coat, and of course, a kid friendly face mask.
L.O.L. Surprise! Dolls are hot right now. In fact, Forbes reported there were 2.5 million dolls sold worldwide in 2017. And they’re only getting hotter with the release of the Frontline Hero Doll, the car-pool coupe, and the Lights Glitter collection.
Our top picks for the best L.O.L. Surprise! Dolls for kids:
This Lonestar country queen comes with 25 surprises, but we have to admit, the white fringe jacket might be our favorite. This set includes two outfits, a guitar, a doll stand, tons of accessories, and a toy record player that actually plays music!
“So many cute details to dress this doll up and have her looking wholesome and pretty. My little one is 7 years old and she really enjoyed opening up all the small bag, accessories, and clothes inside,” said happy Mama in Walmart’s reviews. “The added bonus is the vinyl record that comes with the box and the clever way to play some music along with this. Very innovative and you get a lot of extra items in this one toy box. Easily something for a doll collector or a child as a toy.”
This has to be our favorite LOL Surprise! Doll of all time. Frontline Hero Doll is a beautiful tribute to the essential workers putting their lives on the line during the coronavirus outbreak. So, to celebrate our heroes on the frontlines, LOL Surprise! teamed up with MGA Entertainment Cares to bring kids this limited-edition doll. She comes with personal protective equipment, too – googles, a lab coat, and a mask. What makes this doll even more amazing, of course, is the good cause the money goes towards. The doll is available for $10 presale and $1 of every sale goes toward the nonprofit MGA Entertainment Cares, making her the only doll that fights COVID-19 and supports doctors, nurses, and other emergency workers. A limited edition only, she comes with the signature face mask (that is as stylish as it is practical) that features a special MGAE Cares heart sticker. And like the other LOL Surprise! Dolls kids love, bathe Frontline Hero for a fun, additional water surprise! Because of COVID, delivery is super backed up, so this doll probably will make it to your house in July or August. But even so, it’s so worth it to put your money toward a good cause and to show our children just how selfless frontline workers are.
Seven, eight, or nine LOL Surprise! Doll surprises not enough? Go for the ultimate with the L.O.L. Surprise! 2-in-1 Glamper Fashion Camper. The Glamper Fashion Camper features 55+ surprises that will keep your kids busy for hours. (First, they have to unwrap them all and second, they’ll have more than 55 surprises to work with for hours of imaginative play.) The Glamper Fashion Camper also comes with a brand-new, exclusive LOL Surprise! Doll that you won’t be able to find anywhere else. Once the camper is all set up at your child’s imaginary campsite, it features 10 different hangout areas – bunk beds, a light-up pool (complete with a slide), a fashion runway for showing off those ‘fits, a BBQ patio, and a DJ booth for late-night jam sessions while glamping. The camper itself fully extends to 2 feet by 3 feet and features 360 degrees of play. It also has working lights (headlights) and sounds (honk the horn!), just like the real thing. Now all you need is a few mini marshmallows so the LOL Dolls can roast s’mores on the BBQ!
Oh look, now your L.O.L doll can have her very own WFH setup, too. Just like Mom. Featuring Boss Queen and her chic office setup (including a marble desk, pink chair, gold laptop, and huge coffee), your kid can pretend they’re the CEO. This set features 10+ surprises.
Miss Independent (who’s Queen’s big sis) comes with 20 surprises, all featuring super fierce and fashionable accessories that we, TBH, want for ourselves as grownass adults.

Dollhouses are like, cute. But the LOL dollhouses? These mansions are totally next level. Like next, next level! This wooden structure (which stands at three feet tall and three feet wide) is the house that Kylie Jenner would live in if she was an LOL doll. With three floors, an actual working elevator, lights, sounds, a spa – yes, a spa! – and even a sandbox for some much-needed sensory play. (Dolls need it to have playtime, too!) There is also a moving truck and of in true LOL Surprise! Doll fashion, plenty of furniture in packaging that kids get to unbox. So, yeah, we should probably all move in ASAP. Those three floors are looking good right now… especially in quarantine! Oh, and if you’re worried about your child not being able to fill out the house with dolls – maybe her collection’s a little sparse – the house itself comes with more than 85+ surprises, one of which is an LOL Surprise! exclusive family featuring a Doll, Lil Sister, and Pet.
Once your kid has a few LOL Surprise! Dolls in their collection, they need a mode of transportation. After all, not even LOL Dolls want to be stuck in the house all day. Gift them the luxe rose gold Car-Pool Coupe so the Dolls can go on adventures, even if they are imaginary ones. The trunk of the Coupe actually extends and flips open to reveal a surprise pool/hot tub for on-the-go water fun – they weren’t kidding when they called it a “Car-Pool” Coupe, huh? But that’s not the only surprise… The Car-Pool Coupe also comes with a dance floor so the exclusive LOL Surprise! Doll it comes with can host impromptu dance parties and dance battles during her road trip adventures. I addition to a pool and a dance floor, the Car-Pool Coupe also combines some of the coolest features of other LOL Surprise! products, like the black light. The car has, fold-out mirrors, seatbelts, keys, and even pop-up black light headlights that can shine on the doll to reveal some exciting black light secrets!
More Cool L.O.L. Surprise! Dolls

L.O.L. Surprise O.M.G. Fashion doll Dollie comes with her ‘lil sister, Dollface. Let your kid unbox 25 surprises that come with Dollie, including shoes, accessories, hat box, purse, hair brush, doll stand, and more.
The L.O.L. Surprise! Remix Pets are new character featuring real hair (yup), and all of them represent their own music genre.

Bring on all the glam! The L.O.L. Surprise! Bling Series comes with a bling-bling doll that kids will go heart-eyes for and a price point that moms can handle. Inside the ball kids will find a glitterific outfit, sparkly accessories, a water bottle (obvi), collectible stickers, a secret message sticker, and a few cool, unusual features you won’t find in any other LOL toy – for seven surprises in total. OK, we’re not typically one to spoil surprises but let’s just say with the bling doll, your child can feed and bathe them in order to find out the surprise. Water reveals if she spits, pees, or changes color (let’s keep our fingers cross that it’s the color-changing thing, right?). Plus, the ball can be conveniently converted into a doll stand, which means your kid’s favorite toy might have a thousand plastic pieces, but at least it will be a little bit more organized. The bling ball also comes with a collector’s poster so she can outfit her room in LOL Doll lovin’, too.
This bright, colorful confetti ball might be small but trust us, it’s brimming with all kinds of fun goodies. Unwrap the LOL Surprise! Confetti Pop ball to unearth secret messages, collectible stickers, bottle charms, a ring tattoo, and lots of water-themed surprises. Your little one’s face will light up as each surprise comes tumbling out of the wrapper. But pro-tip: Just make sure you’re accidentally (AKA on purpose) in the other room during the unwrapping. You know, to avoid those said water-themed surprises. Spoiler alert: Water-themed surprises always squirt and kids always want to squirt them at moms. Just sayin’. It just comes with one condition: the kid who unwraps the confetti ball? They are 100 percent responsible for the after-wrapping cleanup, so get the broom, get the towels, and then run, Mom, run!
