We are huge fans of L.O.L. Surprise toys. They’re cute, sassy and super collectible. I’d thought we’d seen it all. First the L.O.L. Surprise dolls. Then the pets. Giggle inducing confetti launchers. And most recently the giant fizzer. But there’s something new in town. And it’s quite different from the usual L.O.L Surprise line. Introducing the L.O.L. Surprise! Biggie Pets Eye Spy Series. *The clue is in biggie.
L.O.L. Surprise! Biggie Pets Review
Naturally, even though we have never owned one before, Little Button already knew all about Biggie Pets?! And, she already had her heart set on getting M.C. Hammy from the Glee Club (the hamster) or Dollmatian from the Glam Club (the dog). Just by chance, her wish was granted and out came this!
Wait a second *you may be thinking. Aren’t L.O.L’s all about the toy being hidden in a blind bag?
That’s what I first thought too. But these are a bit different. The biggie pets are visible in their little homes from the word go. Meaning that we can’t make a boo-boo and mess up buying duplicate collectibles. With a higher price tag of £36.99 I think this is a brilliant idea. And if your little one is all about the blind bags like mine is, don’t worry, there’s plenty of those inside the box.
Once the packaging is off, you’ll find the big pet ball, handle to attach and wear-and-share accessories. Little Button was thrilled with the special eye spy glasses which she could wear to find lots of secret messages as she started to unbox her new pet. We think these are pretty cool! Especially as they turn the world pink.
Meet M.C. Hammy from the Glee Club
The ball that M.C. Hammy comes in is reminiscent of an actual hamster ball. It’s easy to slide open to reveal your very own L.O.L. Surprise! Biggie Pet. I wasn’t sure about the size at first as it’s pretty huge in comparison to the other L.O.L. Surprise! toys. But Little Button completely fell in love with it right away, explaining that it’s her L.O.L. Surprise! dolls magical giant pet, which they ride.
But where are the blind bags?
We had a bit of a giggle as the blind bags are hiding inside M.C. Hammy via a little twisty lid on her bottom, As it turns out, on closer inspection, you can use L.O.L. Surprise! Biggie Pets as piggy-banks. I loved this idea! There was much pulling and tugging, but finally she popped out all 9 blind bags and the 3 little surprise boxes.
The final reveal
Little Button took her time opening up the blind bags to find all sorts of cute mix-and-match accessories. The 3 little surprise boxes were filled with kinetic sand, and so much fun to dig through.
Each L.O.L. Surprise! Biggie Pet comes with either 2 or 3 babies which are hidden in the surprise boxes. Little Button ended up with 2 pets and 2 food baby charms which she was very impressed with.
This little thing colour changes with heat! How cool is that.
Our overall thoughts
I was a bit skeptical at first as the L.O.L. Surprise! Biggie Pets are quite big. I couldn’t see how it would be played with in the same way as the other dolls and pets. However, what do I know right?
Little Button was engrossed as soon as she got her hands on her pet. The unboxing took a lot longer to get through, which added to the initial play value in a really positive way.
And after the unboxing? True to her word, Hammy is now the magical giant pet to Little Buttons L.O.L. Surprise! doll collection. Hammy is loved so much that she takes centre stage in all the L.O.L. make believe games that are played in the Button house since her arrival. And, she even came on holiday, because Little Button refused to leave her at home.
L.O.L. Surprise! Biggie Pets are big, epic and totally get the thumbs up from us!
