I like the L.O.L. Surprise dolls. They are very interesting.

There are seven layers to peel off the ball. On each layer there is a zipper you pull to peel it off. On the first layer, it will give you a paper with a hint of what personality the doll has. Once you know what the personality is, you peel the next layer to get another paper. It will say what the doll can do. The Lil Sister doll can only change color. The paper for the Big Sister doll says it will either spit, cry, change color or tinkle.

After you’re done with that, there are more layers to peel off, but no more hints. Once you’re done peeling, you crack the ball in half to get a bunch of different bags to open. Each accessory comes in its own bag. Once you unwrap all the accessories, there is the doll.

The Lil Sisters always change color, but it would be a bonus if all the Big Sister dolls did, too. First, be sure to take off the doll’s outfit and its accessories. Then dunk it in ice water, and the Lil Sisters should change color. The Lil Sisters have a lot of designs, such as stripes and polka dots. Once you’re done with the Lil Sisters, it’s time for the Big Sisters. Dunk them in ice water, and they might change color. Now you know what your doll does.

And this is the most fun part of all: Remember that ball that your doll came in? It’s shaped like a little house inside, and there is also a cup holder for the doll’s drink. Now it has a little lounge, and you can put the cap on and travel all around with it.
