Which Na Na Na Surprise doll is best?

Na Na Na Surprise dolls combine the best of plush and plastic doll play. These dolls are cute and collectible with adorable animal-inspired outfits and accessories. If you’re looking for a beautiful set, check out the MGA Entertainment Na Na Na Surprise Lavender Kitty Family; it comes with two cute dolls and a matching plush pet.

What to know before you buy a Na Na Na Surprise doll

How it’s made

Most posable dolls are made from hard vinyl, but a Na Na Na Surprise doll uses vinyl sparingly. The head is structured with vinyl but wrapped in fabric. The face is printed onto this fabric, which extends down into the body. The doll’s body has foam inside for a soft, cuddly feel.

The eyes are large and expressive, while the outfits are all animal-themed. The hair is soft and designed to feel like real hair. Most dolls have hair that hangs ankle-length, but a few have very short hair cropped close to the doll’s head.


The original Na Na Na Surprise fashion doll is 7.5 inches tall, while the Na Na Na Surprise teen doll is 11 inches. For reference, the standard L.O.L. Surprise doll is around 3 inches, and the average Barbie doll is 12 inches tall. 

What’s in the box

Every time Na Na Na Surprise releases a new series of dolls, there are new characters, outfits and accessories. The fashion doll comes with one doll in a fun outfit wearing a hat, all of which fits in a matching animal-inspired pom purse. Each doll has a name and a birthday.

What to look for in a quality Na Na Na Surprise doll

Extra accessories

Recent additions to the collections come with additional accessories, such as a hair brush, new outfits, a plush pet, a second doll or a full bedroom set. These extras can cost a little more, but they provide a more compact playing experience that is still a greater value than buying accessories separately.

These accessories are especially useful as the Na Na Na Surprise dolls are not standard sizing. This means that most other doll clothing won’t fit properly. 

Clear packaging

While early series dolls were mostly covered inside the box, the newer dolls come in packages with clear plastic across the front. This makes it easier to see which doll you are getting and what the extras are. Collecting and comparing accessories is a lot easier this way. 


The Na Na Na Surprise dolls are themed, from basic fashion doll sets to the teen series to the slumber party series. No matter how many accessories come in the box, what’s most important is that the theme is clear, fun and well-detailed with those animal-inspired touches. Clothing and accessories should blend the animal-inspired design with the theme’s specific accessories.

How much you can expect to spend on a Na Na Na Surprise doll

Dolls costs $10-$60, depending on the number of dolls included in a package and the accessories.

Na Na Na Surprise doll FAQ

What’s the age range for this toy?

A. The manufacturer recommends these dolls for children 5 to 10 years old because there are small pieces.

Do you know which doll you’re getting?

Does the teen doll come with a pom purse?

A. The little clip-on pouch with a 7.5-inch fashion doll is not included with the teen doll. Instead, the teen doll comes with a hairbrush.
