"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.

Second Series Dolls [2002]

There were at least six 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.

Hollywood Star Party Set

"Skirt shines like a star!"

The doll's skirt was almost the same as the Make-Up Party skirt but in different colours and with the central panels blanked out. It came with a doll named Holly.

Luau Party Set

"Skirt shimmers like a tropical flower!"

The doll's skirt was the same as the Beach Party skirt but in different colours, as was the sun stand found within. It came with a doll named Lola.

Pretty Pet Party Set

"Four Fun Pets!"

The doll's skirt was the same as the Pet Party skirt but in different colours. I don't know the doll's name.

Pretty Princess Party Set

"Skirt feels like royal velvet!"

The doll's skirt was the same as the Princess Party skirt but in different colours. It came with a doll named Pricsilla.

Unknown Name Party Set

The doll's skirt was the same as the Baby Party skirt but in different colours. I don't know the dolls name.

Variation Comparisons

The sets produced in 2002 were made using skirt moulds from the original line with colour changes. The accessories and playsets inside the skirts were also re-used moulds from a number of the playsets from all over the line.
