Pros

  • New concept
  • Fun to watch the doll come out
  • Price

Cons

  • Only fun when it blooms
  • Fun lasts for 5 minutes
  • The pot is not very useful after opened

It seems there is no end to the surprise reveal toys. It is just getting boring since it is always the same concept, some surprise element and then the toy reveal.

You get the pot, add a few drops of water, and the doll “blooms” before your eyes. The first glimpse you get is of some kind of fabulous hairdo; some of the dolls have hair that looks like waves, rainbows, ice cream, flowers, and crystals. Then, kids can open the pot which is not really a play-set as advertised. It does not hold the items for storage or provide more than 2 minutes of play time as a play-set.

The problem with this concept is that unless there is a low probability of getting a double most of the times, you will only buy 1 or 2 of these items. It is great for the toy companies since you never you know which toy you are buying but consumers will soon wake up and demand something new. Imagine you spent money to buy 5 or 6 of these toys hoping to give your kid a collection and upon reveal you end up with 3 of the same toys, what do you do at that point? It is a total waste.

Ingredients/Materials

Each doll is blind packaged inside a plastic, colored flowerpot. Kids can peel off the foil on the top of the flowerpot and remove the sheet of stickers (that will come in handy later), then fill the included watering can with water, and pour it on top. As kids sprinkle the water on the “soil,” the paper covering will disintegrate and the doll will magically bloom out of the flowerpot.
