If you have a child of a certain age who loves dolls (yes!) and collectibles (yes yes!) and surprises (well, who doesn’t?),  chances are you’ll have heard of a hugely popular toy called LOL Surprise.

They’re cute little dolls that come in ‘surprise’ balls, ‘under wraps’ and even have their own house.

You can get sticker albums too and, if you have a child that’s dedicated enough, he or she will be able to name Every. Single. Character.

But what LOL Surprise options are out there? Luckily, there are umpteen ways you can buy these dolls, so, while they’re not exactly cheap, there are options in lots of different price ranges.

Here’s our pick of the best LOL Surprise dolls and gifts (though you’ll probably need to be quick)…

1. LOL Surprise! OMG Remix Honeylicious Fashion Doll, £39.99

Age: 3+

What it is: A 30cm-high hip-hop-inspired doll (1 of 4 in the OMG Remix collection) that comes with 25 surprises, including clothes, shoes and accessories such as a hat box and hairbrush. The packaging doubles as a record player that actually plays the full-size record (feat. Honeylicious singing). Requires 3 x LR44 batteries (included).

Why we love it: Her hair is amazing! And the record player packaging (similar for all the dolls in the range) is very clever. Worth knowing, though, that part of the reason she’s a Remix doll is that her 2nd outfit has got mixed up in fellow Remix doll Lonestar’s box, so your child will ‘need’ to get Lonestar to complete Honeylicous’ wardrobe. And you’ll need all 3 other Remix dolls to reveal the whole song…

2. LOL Surprise! OMG Remix 4-in-1 Plane, £93

Age: 3+

What it is: A 62cm-long, 13cm-high plastic plane that that contains 50 surprises and transforms into a car, recording studio and mixing booth. Includes 2 neck pillows, 2 sleep masks, 2 microphones, 2 headsets, 2 blankets, drinks cart, ticket, rolling suitcases and working lights and sounds. Requires 6 x AG13 batteries (included).

Why we love it: There’s so much detail in this HUGE playset: the plane’s overhead lockers open – and even the window blinds slide down! You get a lot of dinky accessories for your money, too. We really like the recording studio but we’re not sure about the car. It’s officially part of the Remix range but any LOL dolls will fit inside (but you’ll need to buy those separately).

3. LOL Surprise! Car-Pool Coupe with Doll, £34.99

Age: 6+

What it is: A 30cm-high rose-gold open-topped car that features a pool, dance floor, adjustable seats and seatbelts, opening glove compartments and working headlights. Accessories come individually wrapped and include 1 Surprise! doll. Requires 3 x AAA batteries (not included)

Why we love it: It’s nice to see a doll included in this playset (although they’re aren’t other surprises to unwrap). The car is well made and has good detailing – we particularly like that you can adjust the seats to be booster seats for your smaller LOL dolls. The pool has a lining so you can fill it with actual water and the pop-up black-light headlights reveal surprises on your doll.

4. LOL Surprise! Deluxe Present Surprise Limited Edition Doll & Pet, £31.99

Age: 6+

What it is: A ribbon-tied box containing a cake-shaped doll stand, a limited-edition Sprinkles doll and her Spring-claws pet, plus clothes and party accessories to discover amongst the sand and confetti inside, and a large bath bomb.

Why we love it: It’s beautifully presented, both inside the box and out.The doll is small but super-cute (as is her pet), her clothes are sweet and the bath bomb is great – properly fizzy.

Available from: Smyths Toys and Asda

5. LOL Surprise! OMG House, £199.99

L.O.L. Surprise! O.M.G. House

Age: 6+

What it is: A very large (94cm x 26cm x 84cm) 3-storey, 6-roomed wooden doll’s house with lights and sounds, working lift, patio, spiral staircase, pool, sandpit and hot tub. Comes with 85 surprises (to furnish your house with) and can be spun around (if you’ve the space) to reveal a shopping centre backdrop on the other side.

Why we love it: It’s wooden and wonderfully detailed – the toilet flushes and you can fill the swimming pool with water – and we like how the furniture transforms (the pianos turn into bunk beds, for example). But it is massive – do check you have the space for it – and it does take a few hours to assemble before you can play with it.

Available from: Amazon and Argos

6. LOL Water Surprise! Game, 14.99

Age: 3+

What it is: A LOL Surprise characters game that comes with a large plastic ball, 20 LOL Surprise balls, 4 character cards, a sponge and instruction sheet.

Why we love it: It’s a simple but fun game where you have to match the characters on the balls with the ones on your card to win – and you reveal the character on your balls by pressing it with the damp heart sponge. It can be played over and over again too. Super cute.

Available from: The Toy Shop

7. LOL Surprise! Tin of Books Assortment, £12.99

Age: 3+

What it is: A 24cm x 19cm x 3cm tin containing 4 LOL Surprise-themed activity books and 5 sticker sheets.

Why we love it: No unwrapping (or excess packaging) in this one – which makes a change. The little books include puzzles and fashion activities, and the stickers are bright and fun. Nice that it all comes in a keepsake tin. Would make a great stocking filler or birthday-party gift for a LOL Surprise fan.

Available from: Smyths Toys and Very

8. LOL Surprise! Lights Glitter Doll with 8 Surprises, £6.99

Age: 6+

What it is: A 10cm-high ball that contains 1 of 12 collectible LOL Surprise! Light Glitter dolls, and 8 accessory surprises to unwrap, including a ‘black light reveal’ of a secret message on your doll. You can also feed or bathe your doll for a colour-change surprise.

Why we love it: The black light torch is exciting (as long as you use it in a darkened room), and all the dolls in the collection are bright and funky-looking, with some pretty fierce hairstyles.

Available from: Argos and Smyths Toys

9. LOL Surprise! Large Art Set, £10

Age: 4+

What it is: A pack of LOL Surprise-themed arty activities, including 10 A4 colouring posters, a sheet of 30 stickers, 3 2D card cut-outs to dress with 33 outfit stickers, 4 card stencils, pencil, rubber, ruler, sharpener, 8 felt tips, 12 crayons and 2 cut-out door hangers.

Why we love it: There’s lots to get busy with in this art set, and we particularly like the outfit stickers you can put on the doll cut-outs. Good value for money.

Available at: Argos and Bargain Max

10. LOL Surprise! Boys Series 3 Doll with 7 Surprises, £10.99

Age: 6+

What it is: A yellow unwrapping ball containing one of 8 20cm-tall boy dolls. Most are ‘brothers’ to existing girl dolls, including Sweet Guy, brother to Sugar, and Spicy Kid, brother to Spice, but there’s 1 ultra-rare character to collect, called Steezy. Each doll comes with 6 surprises to unwrap, including a drinks bottle, secret message, stickers, shoes, outfit and accessory.

Why we love it: Hurray, some boy LOLs! These ones can be ‘fed’ with water (which they’ll squirt out) and they change colour when put in water, too.
