L.O.L. Surprise Pop-Up Store Review

November 28, 2018


Little Button is a huge fan of L.O.L. Surprise dolls and pets. Even though I feel like we are popping at the seams with them, if you ask her what’s on her Christmas wish list, it’s going to be anything L.O.L Surprise. After doll number 10 was welcomed into the Button house, we quickly realised that it wasn’t going to be practical to store them in their balls or capsules anymore. And very reluctantly, Little Button agreed to house them in a toy drawer.


How hard can that be right? (she says)


…famous last words.


A few weeks later and that drawer, no matter how hard Little Button tries, just can’t stay organised. It just can’t. Even I’ve tried. And with more L.O.L. Surprises on the way for Christmas, it’s just going to get worse. Ekk! But little did I know that help was on its way in the form of an L.O.L. Surprise Pop-Up Store.

*I’m not sure who was more excited.



L.O.L. Surprise Pop-Up Store Review

The new L.O.L. Surprise Pop-Up Store isn’t any ordinary play set. It’s actually a 3-in-1 play set.

The idea is that when it’s not being played with, it can be used as a display and storage unit for your L.O.L. Surprise dolls and pets. In play mode, it turns into the cutest little shopping parade for endless make believe games. And if you are on the go and want to bring them along with you, the lower part of the play set becomes a little carrying case.



Unboxing the L.O.L. Surprise Pop-Up Store

There were a few little bits to slot together to make the set play-ready. But this didn’t take long as it was already largely built.


Here’s what you end up with.

This is actually in display mode. We love how the display is all textured, glittery and pink. Lots of thought has gone into this.



Let’s play!

If you pull out the lower section of the display, it reveals the cutest series of shops. There’s a large fashion boutique, perfect for playing dress up. And in the carrying case section you will find a pizza parlor, chic cafe, pet shop and wig shop (new series alert!!).

Little Button couldn’t wait to start playing! She was so eager that we almost missed the hidden area at the back of the play set. Upstairs are pull out beds for your L.O.L. Surprise dolls and pets – we love this feature! A mirror, a pet pamper area and what looks like a walk-in-wardrobe. There’s just so much to discover.

Now, no L.O.L. Surprise set would be complete without a surprise would it? Tucked into the hidden storage and bed drawers where blind bags. Exactly like the ones you would typically find in the balls or capsules.

L.O.L. Surprise on the go

We’ve yet to take the carrying case out and about, however, Little Button uses this feature all the time at home. Especially in the mornings before school, when she brings it downstairs and plays with her L.O.L. Surprise dolls at the breakfast table. She really loves the carrying case feature, because it makes her independent where she no longer has to ask for someone to carry the previously used toy drawer downstairs for her. #winning

Displaying your L.O.L. Surprise dolls and pets

My favourite bit! *And probably the bit that you wanted to see too.


Nothing is worse than seeing your little ones toys become inaccessible and muddled because you haven’t quite found a way to store them well.  If you have a fair collection of L.O.L. Surprise dolls and pets at home, then this is definitely for you.

Little feet holders keep full sized dolls firmly in place on this stand and beautifully displayed. I think the dolls look great and most importantly are able to be kept neat and tidy, and of course, ready for the next game.

Our overall thoughts

Without a doubt we’ve all fallen in love with the L.O.L. Surprise Pop-Up Store. It’s super fun, incredibly practical and easy to use. Little Button plays with her L.O.L. Surprise dolls even more than before (if that’s even possible!?) largely down to the carrying case feature and play areas.


She thinks ‘it’s the best’, and I would have to agree with her.


L.O.L. Surprise Pop-Up Store



The L.O.L. Surprise Pop-Up Store can be found in Smyths, The Entertainer, Argos and other good toy retailers. – Though I would recommend keeping your eyes peeled if you are after one for Christmas as these are likely to go like hotcakes.
