'She got her finger stuck and we tried for over an hour to release it.

We tried maneuvering it and then realized it was a double layer and whenever we tried to move the top layer she would scream.

'We couldn’t see what was happening with her finger inside.

'We also tried cracking it open and it was too painful for her so we kept stopping.

‘The circulation in her finger wasn’t compromised and eventually returned to normal.

‘I tried posting about it on the LOL surprise page - let’s see if they’ll post it. This toy should be recalled’.

Warning ⚠️. My daughter got her finger stuck -pinched tightly cutting off circulation- in the LOL Glamper this morning,’ wrote another.

‘This product should be recalled or the design must be changed. Didn’t realize this had been happening to others until I googled it in an attempt to figure out how to get her finger I pinched.

‘Took over 30 mins to release by drilling through the bottom. Am reporting this to the #ConsumerProductsSafetyCommission’.

Another complained, 'FYI- if you’ve purchased the lol Glamper beware your child’s finger can get stuck in this ridiculous hole used to open the camper.

‘After 45 minutes we were able to get her finger out. Merry Christmas!’.

L.O.L. Surprise! has responded to the incidents with CEO and Founder of brand owner MGA Entertainment Isaac Larian telling GoodtoKnow, “I am extremely upset to hear about our fans’ negative experience with the L.O.L. Surprise! Glamper.

"Safety is a top priority when we develop our products, which must pass third-party toy testing and all applicable safety requirements before they’re shipped to retailers.

"I take any concerns where injury is involved very seriously. There is a caution sticker on the glamper, and although the product was fully compliant as originally sold, in an abundance of care we have now re-designed the button mechanism to prevent any possibility of finger capture.

"If any of our fans have concerns regarding their purchased Glamper, please contact our Customer Services team immediately."

If you have purchased the toy, we recommend using it with caution and contacting the brand with any issues.
