Lol giant Surprise ball was one of the hottest Christmas toys in 2017. All my girls wanted to receive one. I was under the impression that each one has different items in it as the smaller versions of the toys. To my huge disappointment each ball was exactly the same which was a complete waste of money. The ball now simply sits in their rooms and collects dust.

Pros

  • Fun to open
  • Variety of Pieces
  • Ball used for storage

Cons

  • Price
  • Huge Space Hugger
  • Every ball has same items

When I first saw the toy I thought it would be an amazing gift for my girls based on how much they liked the Lol dolls so I have decided to spend the large amount of money and purchase the gifts for them for Christmas. To my huge disappointment on Christmas day I realized that all 3 balls are exactly the same. So I could have just bought 1 ball and saved tons of money. My plan was to have 3 various balls so they could exchange outfits and accessories. Instead I am now stuck with 2 balls that barely used as they tend to only play with 1 ball but even then they hardly use it due to the amount of set up and clean up time required. Do not waste your money on this toy save your money and just buy a few original Lol. At least you will have a chance of getting a surprise doll.

  • The LOL Big Surprise comes in 3-layers.
  • The first layer will have 10  surprise balls!  Inside them are a cute variety of outfits (including glittery ones!) and accessories for your LOL Surprise dolls.  Yes!
  • The second layer includes charm fizz-balls of all different colors.  When you add them to water you’ll uncover what amazing charms are actually inside (this may include a perfume bottle, BFF heart charms, and more!)
  • The final third layer contains the limited edition dolls.  The BIG SURPRISE is that the ball contains 2 big sisters and 2 little sisters!

Necessity Scale-1

This is definitely an item your kids can be without. If they like Lol dolls just buy a few of the original size and it will be a lot more effective. The bigger ball does not provide any new cool features or items.

Price/Budget

High $100

Siblings Friendly-Can engage together

The giant ball contains various dolls that can be shared between siblings. They will have to take turns playing with each doll which could cause fighting.

It is a great way to encourage sharing and patience between siblings.

Durability/Multi Kid Survivor/Longevity Scale 3

The main problem with these toys is how small the parts are. In theory they should fit in the small ball that comes wih each doll but kids are kids. My kids spent hours looking for the small outfits and accessories that go missing daily. It is very hard to keep track of all the small pieces. The glitter on the outfits does not stay on well and goes all over their hands. The dolls head also pops off regularly. Overall, the toy will not last for a long time.

Development Friendly-Helps with specific skills

Lol dolls do not develop any specific skills or help kids learn. They are just part of everyday pretend play kids experience.

Girl Friendly

This is a very girly toy. It has babies and fashions. 2 things most girls love the most.
