As well as the full range of Remix toys, which includes the Super Surprise and 2020 Collector doll, L.O.L. Surprise! has released a full album of original music. Available to purchase and stream now, ‘Remix’ includes all new songs, bringing together five genres – Pop, R&B, Hip Hop, Country, Rock. The album is available on CD, streaming and downloadable across all platforms here.

“Remix is our strongest range yet, so we knew we had to launch with a bang,” said Samantha Wilson, UK marketing director for MGA Entertainment. “The House Party was our first time launching a new series with a purely digital event. We are thrilled with the content created and loved having the opportunity to directly surprise fans with live activity such as competitions, karaoke and dance parties. With instore pop-ups and major TV support still to come, we’re excited to continue building momentum for Remix ahead of the Christmas period.”

The launch of the new Remix range will continue to be supported through digital activations, instore pop-ups, social media and PR.
