Mystery Capsules are the various Blind Bags the LOL come in. Normally they retail for about 10 dollars and include 1 doll, along with 6 other surprises.
Series 3 introduced Pets to the line up, as well as Glitter capsules composed of the original LOL.
In Series 4, the capsules shape changed, into a cylinder, while also producing another glitter series of the original LOL.
Each character is defined by their rarity, which takes the form of a symbol. The higher it is, the more difficult they are to find. Special LOL can be identified by their gold capsule colors in most series, with the exception of the Glitter and bath fizz series.
The rarities are:
- Popular - Blue Circle
- Fancy - Purple Diamond
- Rare - Yellow Star
- Ultra-Rare - Pink Heart
- OMW/On My Way - Green Hashtag
- No Longer Available - the word NAPPING is print on their image.
The LOL are based around various themes, such as:
- School Personalities/types/nicknames
- School Clubs
In each ball, these items can be found:
- A secret message picture
- A surprise sticker sheet to mark the surprise your LOL doll does on the checklist
- A bottle or random item
- Shoes or a random item
- Sticker page (with the change color sticker)
