"It's a party full of fun surprises!"

Miss Party Surprise were produced by Toy Biz in 1999-2002. They were dolls with large plastic skirts, which when opened turned into a playset full of accessories.

2002 Dolls

There were at least eight more sets produced in 2002, which were made using skirt moulds from the original line. The accessories and playsets inside the skirts were also re-used moulds from a number of the playsets (see lower down for comparisons). These dolls seem to be a lot harder to find on the second-hand market.

Bridal Party Set

"Skirt sparkles like diamonds!"

The doll's skirt was almost the same as the Bowling Party skirt but in different colours and with the central panel design removed. It came with a doll named Bethany.

Glamour Party Set

The doll's skirt was almost the same as the Make-Up Party skirt but in different colours. It came with a doll named Buffy, and also included:

  • Perfume Bottle
  • Trunk
  • Fluffy the Dog
  • Hair Srews
  • Shell Hair Snaps
  • Hair Braid
  • Barrettes
  • Shampoo Bottle
