Mum discovers LOL doll's outfit changes into 'lingerie' when dipped in water
A mum says she was shocked to discover her child’s toys outfits changes into lingerie when dipped into cold water.
Kate Worsfold posted a video on Facebook showing her daughter’s LOL Surprise! dolls.
The appeal of the toys is that you have no idea what you are going to get until you open them, and they have been hugely popular in recent years.
The Australian mum shows that it initially looks like a normal outfit but in the water, some of them change and appear to be wearing sexy lingerie and some have words around their private areas.
She also said one had dark bands that ‘look like shackles’ also appear around her wrist.
She said it was ‘extremely disturbing’ to see and said: ‘I didn’t think it was possible for something like this to happen right under out noses.’
She said that she’d see a few other posts about the dolls and had put a few under the tap but initially thought it was overblown.
However, when she read more about it, she decided to go through her daughter’s whole collection and dip them in some iced water.
She starts by showing one where the head turns blue in the water and then moves onto another doll with underwear. When she dips it in the water, she says that the word ‘caution’ appear across her private parts.
Another doll she picks up is wearing red lipstick, fishnet stockings and a bra.
The next doll she chooses looks like she isn’t wearing anything but when she puts it in the bowl, a tattoo and underwear decorated with an image Kate claims is a devil’s head appear.
She said: ‘As a mum, I am fuming and f***ing livid that my daughter has these toys in our house and I knew nothing about it.’
After the video went viral, other parents started trying the same thing with their own dolls and posted complaints on their own pages and on the LOL Surprise page.
One mum showed the doll wearing strappy underwear and stockings.
She said: ‘I seriously thought this was a joke when I saw this on video but WHY when I put Mckenzies lol doll in cold water she came out with this nice little ensemble on. This is NOT OK. I guess that’s why they call them LOL surprise dolls.’

Lots of different varieties of the dolls, made by MGA Entertainment, are available and only some have the colour changing feature, including the Surprise Confetti Pop Series 3-1 and Lil Sisters Series 3-1.
The dolls previously hit the headlines when parents discovered that the male dolls featured a penis and testicles. The female dolls did not have a vagina.
