EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Make your own surprises with the L.O.L. Surprise! Fizz Factory. This playset is based on the L.O.L. Surprise! Charm Fizz toys that you dunk in water to reveal a hidden charm accessory. Now you can make your own fizzy balls with hidden charms.

It comes with just about everything you need, except for water. You get three charms that you can hide, but you can also hide some of your own tiny surprises. You're basically mixing baking soda, colored pigment powder, water, and citric acid together inside the playset's mixing container and then placing it into a ball-shaped mold where it will dry for half an hour to become a fizz ball. Before it dries you'll insert a charm and even add some glitter.

Display up to three fizz balls on the playset's surprise trays until you're ready to reveal the charm or give them to a friend so she can discover the surprise. Just place the fizz ball in four cups of warm water and watch it dissolve until the charm is revealed.

Is It Fun?

Kids like revealing the surprises of L.O.L. Surprise!, but the Fizz Factory gives them the chance to make their own surprises over and over again. They can create a different fizzy surprise each time, getting creative with the color, the amount of glitter, and the charm they hide inside. Ours didn't look as perfect as the ones on the box, but we think that's okay because you're just going to dunk them in water to make them fizz.

These would be fun DIY party favors for a L.O.L. Surprise! fan to hand out or a fun present to give a fellow fan. Or kids will just enjoy getting creative to make their own surprises and then watching them fizz away for the big reveal.

Who It’s For

The L.O.L. Surprise! Fizz Factory is for ages 8 and up. It adds some creative play to the collectability of L.O.L. Surprise! for kids who are fans of the toy line.

What To Be Aware Of

The Fizz Factory comes with a blue pigment ball, a pink pigment ball, a baking soda ball, a handle, a mixing ball, a clear container, a double-sided scoop, a dropper, three charms with clips, a cleaning tool, a funnel, a citric acid packet, and a baking soda refill packet.

It's recommended that you cover your play surface before you start making the fizz balls. 

The glitter container doesn't stay on very well, so be careful when using it or you'll end up with glitter everywhere.

Adult supervision is required.

Once the included ingredients have been used, you can use household baking soda and citric acid as refills.
