I feel like I have to add an *Explicit* warning to this post? Parents are completely FREAKING OUT that these LOL boy dolls are anatomically correct.

The L.O.L. Surprise! dolls are one of the most asked for toys of the year — at least in OUR house! BUT, parents are now upset that some of these toys have little penises and — I can’t think of a gentle way to say this — little ball sacks.

I’ll admit, I was taken aback at first, but then I thought about it. It is kind of weird that other dolls AREN’T anatomically correct. We are just conditioned to having “smooth” dolls.

I mean, my daughter knows that boys have penises. It should be a more awkward talk to explain why her boy dolls DON’T have anything “down there.”

If I were to make a huge deal out of the doll’s genitals, and make the L.O.L. dolls seem taboo, my daughter would be more likely to want to check them out. Think about it. You were young once. If someone told you NOT to do something, didn’t that make you want to do it all the more?

If I just acknowledge the difference, and kind of laugh it off, she will be more likely to just let it go.

I mean, everyone is FREAKING OUT about these penises, but my question is, do the little girl dolls have labia and vaginas? Because, if not, I feel kind of left out. There should be equality for all dolls*!

In a New York Post article, Isaac Larian said, “all of our LOL Surprise boy dolls have been (and will continue to be) anatomically correct. We believe in the importance of clarity and authenticity with our products and our consumers, and this approach has been carried through all of our products over the past 40 years.”

I’m sure there are males that like to collect these dolls. Are they being “traumatized” by the little male dolls’ penises or the lack thereof on the female dolls?


All this to say, this is just a ridiculous thing to be concerned about. I understand not wanting to have the gender talk with your child before you are ready, but seriously, just don’t FREAK OUT in front of the child. They won’t think it is that big of a deal if you just play it off.

OR — don’t buy the dolls. That is an option — although many kids will be sad about this choice.

p.s. telling a child they CAN’T have the doll is the QUICKEST way to make them want it even more.

We currently have a notification on all packaging, website and product retail pages that states the LOL Surprise! boys are anatomically correct. After all, human beings are naturally and anatomically correct. Do we want to fight the nature and give false impression to kids from early age? Parents can decide this and buy or don’t buy it.

To get L.O.L Surprise! dolls, you can go right to Amazon, and add them to your cart.


*I’m kind of joking. That might be MORE awkward.
