A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Friendship, going to parties, fashion, and looking good are themes.
Positive Role Models
The B.B.s are kind to one another but sometimes have attitudes and roll their eyes. B.B. Midnight becomes jealous and frustrated, but her friends help her get past it.
Violence & Scariness
There’s no violence, but Midnight wants to ruin the party. There are references to a spooky forest. There's some panicked yelling and a slight tussle between Tahani and Mykal-Michelle, but it's meant to be humorous.

Products & Purchases
It’s a promotional vehicle for the L.O.L. Surprise! franchise. L.O.L. dolls, accessories, and toys like The Chalet are featured.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that L.O.L. Surprise! Winter Disco is a partially animated Amazon special featuring the collectible fashion dolls and accessories from the L.O.L. (Lil' Outrageous Littles) Surprise! toy franchise. Viewers need to be able to read to follow the story. Some of the song and dance performances by the live actors showcase glittery glam costumes and hip hop lyrics that may not feel age-appropriate for very young children. While the dolls and accessories aren't revealed by unboxing as they are in the L.O.L. Surprise! YouTube videos, the overall event is an obvious promotional vehicle designed to drive sales of merchandise.
Is It Any Good?
The colorful streaming event offers a lighthearted story featuring all the characters and accessories the franchise has to offer. The L.O.L. Surprise! universe, which is a spinoff of the popular YouTube series titled Unboxed! L.O.L. Surprise! , is colorfully animated, and the conversations between the B.B. dolls are presented as text messages (with subtitles to translate the emojis), which makes it difficult for young non-readers to follow. Meanwhile, the song and dance numbers performed by Tahani Anderson and Mykal-Michelle Harris are fun, but their glam outfits and hip hop songs sometimes have a slight edge to them. No doubt that young B.B. fans will want to tune in, but L.O.L. Surprise! Winter Disco is best for a slightly older set.
