My youngest two girls are huge fans of L.O.L. Surprise! You might remember us first reviewing the original collectible a few months ago here on my blog but they have since added more to their collection with their own pocket money. So when they got back in touch asking if we would like to review the new Pearl Surprise*, I couldn’t reply fast enough. We have never seen these giant versions before but suffice to say, they couldn’t wait to get unwrapping!
As you can see, the Pearl Surprise is HUGE but unlike the smaller L.O.L. Surprise! collectibles that are like a ball, this is half of a ball that opens up with a lid on one side and a carry handle. The lid then becomes a base to hold the case steady as you can see in the pictures that follow.
The exciting thing about this is opening each layer and you start with six separate pearl balls to open up. Inside each one there is a different accessory. There are lots of mermaid themed clothes and even little shoes. They are all made from a rubber type of material so they are really easy to use when it comes to dressing your doll.
Then in the next layer there is a big shell shaped bath bomb. You fill the big case with warm water and pop it in and it fizzes away. It really does fizz and fizz so you have to be careful not to overfill the case with water.
It is recommended that you do this in the case rather than an actual bath as it may stain. My daughter put her hands in to help with the last of the fizzing but it did it by itself really she just wanted to feel the bubbles!
After the fizzing has stopped a big clam shell is revealed and when you open it up, there are three more packets to open. Inside there was a L.O.L. Surprise! doll, a Lil Sister doll and a feeding bottle. The clam shell can be used as a stand for the doll too.
We poured away the bath bomb water then refilled the base with clean water so we could play with the dolls in the water. The dolls will either cry, wee, spit or change colour and you have to try them out to see which one you get. The water also reveals a mermaid effect on the doll’s skin it’s really cute. The Lil Sister doll’s hair and dummy change colour in the water too.
Priced at £29.99 I think this new Pearl Surprise will be a huge hit with any L.O.L. Surprise! fan. It is a great little set and I love that the case can be reused either for water play or a storage case when you are finished. I think it’s great that it includes two dolls plus all of the little accessories and stickers too. The bath bomb was such great fun and definitely added to the fun of the reveal. This gets a huge thumbs up from us!
