*I received the Lalaloopsy Baking Oven and the Lalaloopsy Color Me Doll for review purposes only. No other compensation was received and the above opinions are exclusively my own.*
Like it or not Christmas is on its way. Said but true – the costumes haven’t been worn yet, the trick or treating hasn’t commenced, nor is Halloween even done or behind us and still everywhere you go you will see some sign that Christmas and the holiday season isn’t far behind either.
Case in point, when I shared the photo below from our recent trip to Hicks, for the fall and Halloween festival and we walked through seeing Otto the Ghost’s Story to see this Christmas extravaganza below:
So, as we are gearing up for this holiday, of course, I have had to start Christmas shopping. With two young girls, their lists were started months ago, plus I have other family and friends that I have on my own list, as well.
Now more then ever, each and every time they are watching TV and a kid’s toy commercial comes on, I very conveniently here:
“I want that for Christmas!”
Well, as luck would have it, Christmas has come early and was allowed to review and keep two different Lalaloopsy toys, which were already on their above mentioned Christmas wish-lists.
I, totally unpacked and wrote this review while my munchkins were in school, because these are getting packed away for Santa to indeed bring in about 2 short months now!!
What did we get from Lalaloopsy?
1. Lalaloopsy Baking Oven:
This one even excited me as I do love to bake (so do my girls) and cannot wait to try this with my girls, as it bakes real yummy treats in minutes!
The process is fairly simple and as follows:
- Enjoy Yummy Treats
What is included with the Lalaloopsy Baking Oven?
- Lalaloopsy Baking Oven
- Strawberry Cake Mix, Sugar Cookie Mix, Pink Frosting and Heart Confetti
- Heart-Shaped Spatula
- Button Cookie Mold
- Baking Pan
- 4 Measuring Spoons
By the way, once you finish the included mixes, Lalaoopsy also has refills that can be purchased including Chocolate & Strawberry Cake, Confetti Cake, Chocolate Chip or Sugar Cookies. So the baking fun never has to really end!
If you don’t believe me, watch this YouTube video for more on the Lalaloopsy Baking Oven now:
2. Lalaloopsy Color Me Doll
First of all, my girls have a few Lalaloopsy Dolls and absolutely love them, but what makes this new doll so special is the fact that they can actually decorate and redecorate over and over this doll to their liking.
See the Lalaloopsy Color Me Doll comes with three markers, two stamps and even an eraser, so that the girls can draw and stamp on Lalaloopsy Color Me Doll, but then can erase easily to do it all over again.
Coming from a mom, who has a kids, especially Emma that I just shared here (take a look at the above picture if you missed this) that likes to draw and decorate my walls, I loved that she could play with this doll and channel her artistic and creative abilities on the doll versus on my walls.
Don’t believe me how incredible the Lalaloopsy Color Me Doll is??
So for yourself more about the Lalaloopsy Color Me Doll in this YouTube Video now below:
Also wanted to share some exciting Lalaloopsy News with my readers who might be interested in attending…
Lalaloopsy World’s Biggest Pajama Party.
They are going to attempt to break the official Guinness World Record for most slumber party participants in multiple locations. The current record is 34,000 girls and are hoping that with your help, we can smash that record!
Abby is obsessed with Lalaloopsy, too and has many of the toys on her even growing Christmas list! Will definitely get the art kit, as she would LOVE that! :)-Ashley

Ahhh, see this is where I am different. We are an all boy house, so it’s going to be trucks, dinosaurs and video games here.
Ginny Marie says
Those are adorable gifts! A friend of mine was telling me she’s already started Christmas shopping. I should start now, too, so that I’m not so stressed out at Christmas time!
Jennifer | The Deliberate Mom says
I have troubles coping with the whole Christmas stuff before Halloween gig! It’s a tad overwhelming. Don’t get me wrong… I love Christmas and have already started some preparations but it seems early for stores to take out merchandise.
However, I love that little oven! How cute (as a little girl, I loved my EZ bake oven but this looks so much easier.
My youngest would love that doll. She has tried colouring on her dolls before. Oh my. Your wall – eeek! So glad you had the nail polish remover handy.
Thanks for sharing. Wishing you a lovely weekend.
Yep, Christmas signs are everywhere. I like Lalaloopsy…but my daughter’s a teen now and doesn’t want those kind of toys anymore (she’s asking for things like the Samsung Galaxy phone, oy!). I miss the toy days. 😉
I like that you are publishing this early before Christmas shopping begins. Very smart. Have a great Friday, Janine, and thank you.
These are so cute! I always wanted one of those little ovens when I was a kid. I blame my lack of a kid’s oven for my inability to cook now. Just think how your daughters might become chefs one day. Or, at least, not have to live on Ramen when they are in college.

Awww, cool! It’s like this gen’s version of the easy bake oven. Can’t wait for them to open it and I want to see what they bake. So cool that the drawings on the doll can be erased. Let them experiment with their creativity. Merry early Christmas :).
Diane Roark says
I love that you are getting such a head start on your shopping. We have so little time with all the blogging demands. You encouraged me to take advantage of every opportunity we get to plan ahead. I truly believe when we plan ahead we are FAR LESS STRESSED.
I love the toys you picked. They seem perfect for the girls.
Have a great Friday my favorite day of the week. I get to go watch my son play football.
My niece loves Lalaloopsy! I also saw a very “interesting” commercial for one of their dolls in which it leaves charms in its diaper??? What the ??? That is seriously crazy!!
My girls have written their names on furniture and walls, and when confronted, counter with “it wasn’t me!” (Maybe their sisters were smart enough to write her name on the wall? Is this possible?)
You remind me how far away I am from toys for Christmas like this. I don’t even know what Lalaloopsy is! It’s all clothes and electronics and art supplies on my girls’ lists now. Oh, and remote-control cars.
Glad you got to unbox and play with the stuff first, Janine. That’s a good mama.
I think my daughter would love one of those doddle dolls. I have been considering one for this year!
The girls are so cute in their red dresses! I’m glad they have new stuff to try. That baking oven sounds amazing. Great way to practice their baking skills. And the doll looks so pretty! I can remember my childhood days. :))
Well, those things will not be in our home but I do have lots of nieces who might love them!!!
Stephanie @ Life, Unexpectedly says
Oh my goodness, Lily and Violet would so love the doll to color. Violet just re-discovered the soft doll she’s received for her 2nd birthday and loved it 🙂
Amanda @ Growing Up Madison says
I have a HUGE Lalaloopsy fan over here as well and I’m already getting the “I want that!” with every kid commercial that comes on TV. That baking oven and doll would be a huge hit with most kids I think and I can’t wait to hear about their excitement when they open their gifts. Here’s to a great weekend!
I’m a little out of the toy loop. so I’ll admit that I’ve never heard of them before, but the doll that you can redecorate looks like a lot of fun!
Kristi Campbell says
OMG Christmas is WAY too soon. It seems like just yesterday that we were complaining about last years’ snow days, and then the kids turning five… how is this time flying, Janine? Seriously? I love that you’re already getting a head start but really? Making me look bad. Tucker does tell me daily what he wants but omg I want a girl some days because we’re talking transformers, toy guns, blech.
Aunt Gloria says
This looks like a lot of fun! Glad you’re one foot up on the girls Christmas list with the Lalaloopsy’s. The bake oven will keep them busy for sure! Was great to see you all. Love…..
Chris Carter says
My kids have been talking about their elf coming for A MONTH!!!! This looks SO cute!! And the picture of your girls? BREATHTAKING!!! And I literally LOLed at Emma’s name on the door! CLASSIC mom moment indeed!!!
These gifts look SO perfect for the little girls!! Great timing- cause as you said- CHRISTMAS IS COMING FAST!!!!
Can Scarlet come to your house for Christmas???
And I haven’t started Christmas shopping, much, (ok one gift) because I’m waiting on two paychecks from BlogHer that will post on November 15th (convenient, right?) but I’m already in the holiday mood. Which is nice because last year was the only year of my life in which it never hit me. I have no idea why and it was sad. This year, it already did.
I think now that my sister’s wedding is over, it’s time to focus on the holidays because life is a bit calm enough now to do so.
I love Christmas and the holidays, so bring it on 🙂 My girls would totally go crazy over these 2 items, thanks for sharing Janine!
I don’t know which my kids would like more, the oven or the doll! I will have to add both to our holiday and birthday list.
I kinda want that baking oven for myself 🙂
The Pinterested Parent says
These are so cute. My daughter would go nuts for that doll. I want to get her one for Christmas. Thanks for the suggestions.
Oh my goodness! This reminds me of Easy Bake Oven from back in the day! I so wanted to make something with that thing and I never got a chance to. I think one of my cousins had one. This is so cute, Janine! Emma looks adorable making her cake. 🙂
Nellie @ Brooklyn Active Mama says
I have a few girls in my life that would love this lalaloopsy stuff!! I think I am going to get them the oven! I remember having one as a kid and it was awesome! I totally wish I could go to the pajama party too 🙂 sounds like so much fun!
