Why the LOL doll changes color in cold water is not exactly known, the company keeps this information a secret, but most likely the manufacturer uses a special thermochrome paint, and there is a special vinyl, which also changes color when exposed to water.

On August 12, a video appeared on Facebook where a woman checks how LOL Surprise dolls change color in icy water. Some dolls had the shape of underwear and nipples, which greatly outraged many parents. The video received 40 million views in 5 days.

It is not the first time that parents resent the appearance of dolls after the ice water. In 2019, in the Social. the Reddit network has a post about a prostitute doll:

My 3 year olds “ LOL Surprise doll” she got for Christmas. When you dip her in cold water her “secret spy outfit” shows up. Aka secret lingerie. And for whatever reason the nipples become extremely visible. The leopard print skimpy outfit she came with also makes her look like a hooker.

MGA responded to the criticism and reported that it has taken action in this regard:

“L.O.L Surprise! is a fashion-forward doll brand designed to be fun and expressive,” a spokesperson told Fast Company. “We work very hard to be a brand that listens and adapts to our fans’ requests. We acknowledge the recent feedback received and thank you for bringing it to our attention. We have implemented comprehensive corrective measures to our design and approval process while ensuring the essence of the brand is kept intact.”

However, what exactly will change is not yet known.

  2. Helen Taylor says:

    I wish I would have known the full detail about these before I spent soo much on them for my 7yr old! I would NOT have got them. I am not ok with this toy. I kinda understand the whole “love yourself”, and “believe in yourself” and wear what you want. But it is never ok for my 7yr old to wear lingerie! If I could take it all back I would but not only would that break her heart, it would be a lot of work. So at this point, I’m just hoping it’s a very short faze n I don’t have to spend much more money on them.
