Hatchimals? That’s so 2019. This year, the hottest gift for kids is an L.O.L. Surprise! Doll. What the heck is that you ask? Allow us to explain.

L.O.L. Surprise! Dolls are surprise miniature toys (think: three inches tall). They come packaged in a ball but—and here’s the part that kids love—you don’t know which doll is inside. The toy also includes more surprises like stickers and fashion accessories. Aspiring fashionistas will love using the packaging as a mini purse while future Joanna Gaines' can use it as a living room. Oh, and the dolls are babies. Still with us?

Choose from big sister or little sister dolls and then complete your kid's stocking with an L.O.L. pet.

They’re basically like Kinder eggs, but without the chocolate. And per The Abode report (which measures transactions from 80 of the top 100 U.S. online retailers), kids can’t get enough of them. The report found that L.O.L Surprise! Dolls were one of the biggest selling items on Black Friday.

While you're pretty much guaranteed to accidentally step on one of the dolls on Christmas morning, your kid will be totally obsessed with her new toy. And isn't that kind of worth the pain? Get ‘em now before they fly off the shelves.
