L.O.L Surprise Confetti Pop Review

Dear Mummy, earlier this year L.O.L. Surprise! Confetti popped into the UK with nine brand new surprises including new dolls and accessories. I’ve seen these surprise balls all over YouTube with excited kids tearing open layers of wrapping to reveal a ribbon which you pull to make a confetti explosion (a bit like a confetti canon) and out pops a toy. It’s such a great idea that we just had to give one a try to see whether it lived up to my expectations.

L.O.L. Surprise! Confetti Pop

To start opening the L.O.L. Surprise! Confetti ball (£10.99) you pull down on a printed perforated zip on the yellow wrapping, which rips down revealing the next layer of cellophane. It’s just like pass the parcel and after peeling off the first two layers which revealed stickers, there was a plastic seal with instructions on what you need to do next.

There are four compartments in the LOL Surprise Confetti Pop, each with their own blind bag in which was super exciting. We got some accessories and miniature clothes. After opening these pink ‘shutters’ we kept opening to reveal the piece of ribbon…

The final surprise in the main ball was to find the doll to match the accessories. The instructions told us to simply turn the LOL Surprise Confetti Pop over and pull the ribbon. With a sharp tug and our breaths held the the top flicked off and out popped the confetti and a blind bag with the surprise doll (watch our video to see).

There are lots of characters to collect with different outfits and hidden talents, like colour changing in water. We found Punk Boi and he is the first boy in the LOL Surprise! series. That’s right he’s an official boy LOL and a doll called V.R.Q.T which is a popular collectable from the S.T.E.M Club.

Check out our unboxing video…

The LOL Surprise Confetti Pop was a big hit with me and the multiple layers really added something extra and took much longer to open it. The confetti pop at the end was exciting and unexpected too. However, my mummy wasn’t impressed with the amount of waste left behind by all the packaging. There was a lot of cellophane, blind bags and plastic shell left over and even though you can reuse the ball as a display/bag to put the doll in she fears it will end in the bin.

She wonders whether a cardboard version would be better for the environment. Either way they are proving very popular across the world for their novel concept. L.O.L. Surprise! Confetti Pops! are intended for aged 6+ and I’m only 5 years old and I enjoyed opening it up. They would make good birthday presents or stocking fillers and you can pick them up from good toy retailers including Smyths and The Entertainer. We can seen why these are a huge hit with kids.

  1. This is great ! My little girl Lilo has been asking for a Lol Surprise and I have been putting it off. I didn’t know much about them and I thought they would be a little lame but seeing your post has encouraged me to go out and buy one this weekend. Lol x

  2. All that in that round ball. Wow. My little one wants to start collecting these. I will have to show her. #familyfunlinky

  3. OMG my kids totally just love the LOL dolls, and I know for certain that they would love theese confetti pops and yes we would prefer a cardboard version too if we were to buy this.

  4. Oh my girls are obsessed with LOL dolls and loved the confetti pop! I wasn’t quite as keen when I was cleaning all of the confetti up off my carpet ten times a day, but I can see why they loved it!

  5. My daughter’s reaction was “Mummy can I have one please?” I totally agree with you about the waste though. So not eco friendly.
    Great video 🙂 #familyfun

  6. My daughter had one of these but didn’t read the instruction properly so she never really pull the ribbon to see the confetti explosion.

  7. That looks so much fun for kids. My niece would love this Surprise and the packaging is so attractive for children.

  8. My little girl is only 3 but would go crazy over this. She does have one and loves it (although half the accessories vanished fairly quickly), the addition of the confetti would get her very excited. Thank you for joining the #FamilyFunLinky x
