Last Minute Easter Basket Gift Ideas for Girls from MGA Entertainment (Review)

Disclosure:  I was sent samples from the vendor in exchange for an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.

Try saying blind bags in front of your children and you will probably get their attention almost instantly.  Blind bags and surprise toys are all the rage with kids of all ages nowadays, and you can't go into a store without having your kids ask to visit the toy section to look for their favorite bling bags or see what new series and sets are now available.  MGA Entertainment has some of the best surprise toys and blind bags for kids.  Think back to Christmas...did your daughter ask for a L.O.L Surprise Doll?  Both of my girls asked Santa for the out Big Surprise™, but they were a hot toy of the season and sold out everywhere near us.  Santa did find cute L.O.L Surprise Tots and Pets to leave in the girls stockings  Do you kids go crazy for L.O.L Surprise! dolls? If they do, then they will be excited to hear about all the fun new additions from MGA Entertainment to the popular L.O.L Surprise line.

L.O.L. Surprise!

MGA Entertainment Launches New L.O.L. Surprise!™ Confetti Pop™ – Punk Boi

"L.O.L. Surprise!™ :  The L.O.L. Surprise!™ family welcomes new additions to the Rock Club clan, anatomically correct Punk Boi and his brother Lil Punk Boi, but finding them will be hard – these color-changing dolls are ultra-rare. Punk Boi can be found in the upcoming release of additional Confetti Pop™ characters and Lil Punk Boi will be part of Lil Sisters™, Series 3 collection. (Age: 6+; MSRP: $12.99 and $6.99).  

As a follow up to the sold-out Big Surprise™, MGA Entertainment debuts the L.O.L. Surprise!™ Pearl Surprise™ (Ages: 6+, MSRP: $29.99).

Pearl Surprise™ comes in a glitter purse carrying case with six pearl surprise balls and a large seashell fizz. Drop the two-color seashell fizz into water to reveal a limited-edition doll and Lil Sister inside a seashell doll stand. Note: Fizz is not for bathtub use."

These new L.O.L. Surprise! toys would make great last minute gifts to pick up and add to your child's Easter basket.

In addition to the new L.O.L Surprise! toy line, MGA Entertainment has also recently released the new 

Lalaloopsy - The Magic of Creativity!

My girls were so excited when they saw me take the new Lalaloopsy Minis Series 3 Mystery Purses Surprise Dolls out of the box of goodies the folks at MGA Entertainment sent us to review.  

These dolls are based on the popular Netflix series, which my girls cant' get enough of. 

Kids can collect all 24 dolls that make up the new Lalaloopsy Minis Series 3 Mystery Purse line. 

These mystery purses are available online at Amazon.com, as well as major retailers including Target, Walmart, K-Mart and Toys'R Us.  They retail for around $13.50 each.

Here is a video I took of the Savannah doing an unboxing of their Lalaloopsy Minis Series 3 Mystery Purses Surprise Dolls.  

The girls really loved how the blind bags were hidden inside a cute pink or purple purse, which when you are done, can be used to store your doll and accessories.

Being big fans of blind bags, the girls couldn't stop screaming with excitement as they tore through the different bags that filled these cute Lalaloopsy Minis Series 3 Mystery Purses. 

Mini Mystery Purses - Series 3
As you can see in the videos and photos above, each of the Lalaloopsy Minis Series 3 Mystery Purses Surprise Dolls come with a a doll, a dress, shoes, hair and an accessory.  The pieces are easy to take apart and swap and style with other Laloopsy dolls your kids have collected from the previous series.  The pieces are rubbery, so they will stand up to lots of playtime with your kids.

And, like with all blind bags, there is a checklist/collectors poster that comes with each Lalaloopsy Minis Series 3 Mystery Purses Surprise Dolls so that your child can mark off and keep track of the Lalaloopsy Minis Series 3 Mystery Purses Surprise Dolls they have collected.  And, if for some reason they don't know the Lalaloopsy's dolls names, this checklist will let them who it is and if the doll is rare, ultra rare, etc.  My girls love to hang their Lalaloopsy minis collectors poster on their wall in their room to keep track of the different minis they have collected.  And, whenever they get a duplicate, they love trading with each other, or with friends who also collect these fun Lalaloopsy Minis.


In addition to the Lalaloopsy Minis Series 3 Mystery Purses Surprise Dolls and L.O.L Surprise dolls, the folks at MGA Entertainment have another best-selling toy line, that has kids going  crazy.

Num Noms Snackable Dippers

"Nums Noms are super-cute, scented food-themed characters that girls can mix, match and stack with tons to display, trade and collect.  Taking slime to a whole new level, Num Noms™ Snackables™ Dippers (Age: 3+, MSRP: $6.99) come with all new shapes and sizes and a scented secret slime dipping sauce that offers a color change discovery feature.

Num Noms Snackables Cereal Series 1-2

 Promising surprise and delight with each package opened, Num Noms™ Snackables™ Cereal (Age: 3+, MSRP: $8.99) feature 12 adorable cereal-shaped Num Noms in each bowl, complete with spoon, magic "milk" and a surprise character reveal just like finding a toy in a cereal box."

Who knew collecting food would be so much fun, right?  I remember back in the day we used to collect little charms that had food on them.  But, I have to say these new Num Noms™ Snackables™ Cereal and Num Noms™ Snackables™ Dippers are so much fun -- I wish they were around when I was little, as I would have been saving my allowance and birthday money to buy them.

We were sent some Num Noms™ Snackables™ Cereal and Num Noms™ Snackables™ Dippers for the girls to try out and share their thoughts on.  My girls have a growing collection of Num Noms toys, but haven't tried these two products from MGA Entertainment.  Whenever we would go to Walmart or Target these new toys in the popular Num Noms series were all gone.  

Here are some videos and photos of the girls unveiling the Num Noms™ Snackables™ Cereal and Num Noms™ Snackables™ Dippers...

As you can see in the videos and photos above, the girls had so much fun with these new Num Noms toys.  They loved how the slime in the Num Noms™ Snackables™ Dippers cups were scented, and that some of the pieces changed color with the cold temperature.  When the girls were done playing with the slime, they could place a cover on the top to save it and play with later. Usually with blind bags my girls will tear open the bags or surprise sets and then add the pieces to their growing shines.  But, with the Num Noms™ Snackables™ Dippers they haven't stopped playing with the scented slim and super cute scented food-themed characters.  They were so excited to finally be able to experience the Num Noms™ Snackables™ Dippers, as their friends have been raving about them -- and, now they can't wait to get more.  

The Num Noms™ Snackables™ Cereal bowls were my personal favorite.  The girls were kind enough to let me try out one bowl along with them. :-)  To reveal the surprise Num Noms cereal-shaped characters, your child has to add magic milk -- aka water, to the plastic bowl.  They then use the spoon that is included with the Num Noms™ Snackables™ Cereal to slowly reveal the 12 adorable surprise cereal-shaped Num Noms™.  I used to love finding the mystery toys in cereal boxes as a kid, and thanks to the new Num Noms™ Snackables™ Cereal I get to relive this excitement of a toy reveal in a fun new way.  

My girls and I had so much with the Num Noms™ Snackables™ Cereal bowls, and couldn't believe that you get 12 surprises in one bowl.  With every swirl of the spoon in the magic "milk" we were revealing a new cereal-shaped Num-Noms character.  There was some trading of duplicates between my girls, but for the most part they didn't want to part with these oh-so cute cereal-shaped characters.  

Num Noms Snackables Cereal Series 1-2

Just like with the Num Noms™ Snackables™ Dippers, the Num Noms™ Snackables™ Cereal kept my girls entertained for hours and is one toy they continue to play with.  And, whenever they are talking with friends, they can't help but mention the new Num Noms™ characters including ultra rare ones they got recently.  Back in the day we used to swap trading cards, and now our kids are swapping adorable cereal-shaped characters, L.o.L dolls, Lalaloopsy minis dolls and other fun blind bag and surprise toys.  My girls can't go a day without talking about these surprise toys and all the different rare and ultra rare characters out there.  It is a phenomenon that has swept the nation -- even their penpals in other countries all about the Num Noms, L.O.L Surprise and Lalaloopsy minis.  And, I don't see this craze going away anytime soon. Do you?

So, with Easter only a few days away, why not pick up a few of these fun surprise toys to add to your child's Easter basket.  I picked up a for of the Lalaloopsy minis purses and was lucky enough to find a few Num Noms™ Snackables™ Dippers hiding behind toys on the shelf at the store the other day, to add to my girls' baskets.
