LOL Surprise Pets Review

January 4, 2018


Once in a while something quite extraordinary will pop up and grab your little ones attention. When it does, make sure you seize it with both hands and hold on tight for the ride!


Little Button is a newbie fan of LOL Surprise. She had been raving about them for months, but it wasn’t until Daddy Button accidently bought the LOL ‘BIG’ Surprise a few weeks ago (now that’s another story) that she fell hook, line and sinker for these cute as a button collectables. And I get it. I totally do. It’s all about the whole experience right from the moment you have an LOL Surprise package in your hands. And this is what makes them so unique and utterly exciting.


LOL Surprise Pets


Of course LOL Surprise dolls have taken the toy charts by storm, there’s no surprise in that, right. But.. surprise! Joining the family are the sweetest new additions. LOL Surprise Pets. Yes, the LOL family just keeps getting bigger and better. We were really excited to get our hands on one of these to show you.



LOL Surprise Pets Unboxing


LOL Surprise Pets

Just like the dolls, the LOL Surprise Pets are packaged up in a neat little ball. Hidden inside are 7 surprises just waiting to be discovered as you unwrap the packaging. The first 2 are concealed within 2 layers of wrapping, just like the LOL Surprise dolls. Once you get to the actual ball, the remaining surprises are tucked away inside.

We were really impressed by the journey of discovery you are taken on through the unwrapping of the ball. All the hints lead you up to the big reveal of your pet in the most engaging way. The toy packaging has literally been turned on its head and transformed into being part of the toy, how cool is that! *I’m a packaging fiend.



So What’s Inside LOL Surprise Pets?

If you’ve watched our new YouTube video, you’ll have seen the unwrapping in action! You’ll also have seen that Little Button was lucky enough to scoop a pet pup! She’s got an old school, retro vibe going on, which is great as she matches Little Buttons newest Big Sister doll. Hooraa!

So, inside LOL Surprise Pets you can expect to find the following:

1 collectable mini poster

1 clue (which is also a sticker)

1 set of itty bitty collectable stickers

1 water bottle charm

1 set of shoes

1 scooper (watch the video for the blooper!)

1 Surprise accessory

1 LOL Surprise Pet (with surprise water feature)

We love how all the bottles, shoes, clothing (from LOL Surprise dolls) and accessories can be swapped between all your LOL’s, including the pets. What a blast!



What We REALLY Think Of LOL Surprise Pets

From a parent’s point of view, the whole concept is completely genius! It’s like a game of pass the parcel that never ends. Because you can bet your bottom dollar that once they have been put back in their respective balls, when they come back out for playing with again, you just never know which ball is going to contain what. And the surprises start all over again.


I can’t quite put my finger on exactly what makes LOL Surprise Pets (and Dolls) so brilliant, but they have certainly conquered Little Buttons toy box. We can’t wait to see what’s coming next from the LOL Empire!

    This looks pretty awesome to be honest, my 6 year old popped her head over as I was reading this and quickly exclaimed “LOL SURPRISE DOLLS” so clearly I am jumping onto the bandwagon a little late! Lol

    those look cute although I don’t think my sons (aged 20, 34, 36) would appreciate one and my grandson from our eldest is only 5 months ….never mind I’m sure I’ll find someone to buy one for… #dreamteam

  16. I love the LOL Surprise dolls! I had no idea they had launched pets too, what a fab idea x #dreamteam

  17. These are really cute. Maybe I’ll pick up a few for the girls. My 4 year old has a birthday in a few weeks.

  18. My 8 year old has a craze over figurines. First it was My littlest petshop, then Shopkins and now LOL Pet Surprise. #DreamTeam

  19. Sarah says:

    Finally a toy that doesn’t need a set of screw drivers just to open it! I think my niece would love these I’ll be recommending them. #DreamTeam

  20. Jaki says:

    This has got the Little Man’s name written ALL over it, I just know he would love them. He’s obsessed with blind bags and surprise bags for as long as I can remember so I just know it would be right up his street. The pass the parcel idea is brilliant. Little Button is adorable and what beautiful hair she has. #Dreamteam

  21. We’ve seen these in the shops and have always been intrigued. Love the bright POP ART packaging and nothing beats a good surprise! #DreamTeam

  22. I wondered what all the hype about what? Looks like a whole lot of fun!

  23. Wendy says:

    I have never heard of these but I love the idea! Little button sounds so excited in the video bless her xx #dreamteam

  24. Chloe says:

    What a great and obviously very popular idea, the fun for me would all be in the unwrapping #DreamTeam

  25. Sophie says:

    Never seem them but I can imagine little children would love these; especially all the different aspects to it. They would make great presents to give classmates. #dreamteam

  26. Molly says:

    Wonder if my four year old would like this. Turning the throw away part of gifting – the unwrapping into something fun is a start.

  27. Heather Keet says:

    I’m putting these on the birthday list for my nieces, I think they’re finally old enough to enjoy these. #DreamTeam

  28. This looks really lovely! And lots of fun to open! #dreamteam

  29. Oh Edith would absolutely love these!!! She adores Kinder Eggs and loves opening things up. I may have to treat her!! #DreamTeam

  30. Nita says:

    This is adorable! I’m a sucker for these thing even though I’m definitely not their targeted age group! If only I had a little girl, I would be getting these left, right and centre! #DreamTeam

  31. Oh they look class. The excitement little ones must have opening them. I must admit I saw the bigger ones and thought ‘I can’t justify spending that money and not know what I’m getting’ But I might take the plunge now.

  32. Those toys look pretty cute… they almost remind me of the Littlest Pet Shop.

    It’s the sort of thing my daughter would love!

  33. What happens when the ball doesn’t contain the doll they wanted?! I think these surprise toys can go two ways. But glad yours was a hit. #dreamteam

  34. RawMum says:

    Sort of like an enhanced kinder surprise without the chocolate? I always used to enjoy those. #dreamteam

  35. I can easily say, with all the pomp and circumstance that is Christmas and Hannukah, the LOL dolls and the Beanie Boo collectibles were by far the most well received and loved by the littles. Something so very right about everything! Hours of play from the moment they are uncovered! The surprise, the glee… magical. Great review! xoxo #dreamteam

  36. I think I must have been living under a rock but we haven’t come across these yet! We have a birthday party coming up though and this looks like a fab gift idea! Lots of fun to be had and I always think half of the fun is in the unwrapping! Little Button looked like she was having the best time! #DreamTeam xx

  37. I have seen people raving about these but not seen them in real life – she is so excited in the unboxing! These look like such good fun, I can see why they’re so popular #dreamteam

  38. These look super cute. They seem to have passed us by here but I’d love these as much as small girl I think! #DreamTeam
