Why are LOL Surprise! Dolls so popular?
Beyond the quirky and cute style of each doll, users are also treated to an 'influencer-like' unboxing experience that features additional surprises outside of their new fashion friend.
"The way we designed the unboxing experience -- the seven layers of surprise -- really kicked off the craze back when we first launched," Isaac Larian, CEO of MGA Entertainment. told CBS Essentials.
Not only are users gifted with a new doll, but they get the enjoyment of unboxing secret accessories and styles, and expanding their LOL Surprise! Doll universe with bigger add-ons for the characters, like cars, dollhouse mansions and more.
