Lottie Doll - Review

Lottie Dolls are all about exploring adventurous themes, and my sweet little Madelaine has enjoyed playing with her 'Lighthouse Keeper Lottie'. Maddie brushes her hair, ties her scarf, puts her shoes on, and Lottie is ready to go. I like that Lottie has the proportions of a girl not a woman, and that we can buy other outfits for her.

Doll Details:

* Launched in August 2012, Lottie has won 19 international awards including a Canadian Toy Testing Council 3-Star Award and Neighbourhood Toy Stores of Canada (NETS) Gold Star Winner

* Lottie is a wholesome doll alternative for children aged 3-9; she is 7.5 inches (18cm) tall - portable and easy for little hands to carry around

* The key point of difference is that Lottie has a ‘childlike’ body – she doesn’t wear makeup, jewellery or high heels and she can stand on her own two feet (always a useful life skill for all girls, big and small). She’s all about letting girls be girls, doing all the activities a child would do, not growing up too quickly, and presenting a healthy view on body image.

* Lottie’s clothing is composed of tactile fabric with lots of attention to detail, easy to dress and undress, with velcro fastenings. She has bendable knees with ball socket hips and arms; her head can move side to side and she can do the splits front to back and side to side.

* Lottie is presented in a giftable, illustrated and collectible ‘doll box bag’, with minimal plastic packaging

* Lottie retails for $19.99, outfit sets $9.99

Lottie's Character:

Lottie is a feisty character; she can stand on her own two feet and whilst she occasionally makes mistakes, she learns from them. She is not perfect. Lottie loves adventure and the outdoors and uses her imagination. In many ways, she is inspired by the spirited female characters in books we loved as children: Anne of Green Gables, Pippi Longstocking, Jo in ‘Little Women’, Nancy Drew and George in the ‘Famous Five’.
