We were first introduced to the world of Lottie by Pops’ Aunt and Uncle who live in Ireland. For Christmas they bought her the loveliest little doll wearing a yellow rain jacket and wellies, Muddy puddles!
I had never seen a doll like her, so beautifully designed and dressed and I wanted to know more about where she came from.
After looking her up I was amazed to see the range of others and knew I wanted more.
The Lottie dolls (and Finn the boy) are based on the average 9 year olds body (with a slightly bigger head) and they are made with kids ages 3-9 in mind. They are a company that really care about the kids they design for and include them in every step of the way, allowing kids to help create dolls that they want to play with.
“We dream of a safe and uncomplicated place where kids can be kids, where the great outdoors is there for the exploring, where curiosity-led discoveries are a daily occurrence, where the imagination can run wild and where the only limit is bedtime.”
The range of Lottie dolls and accessories is incredible and they are constantly updating and adding more, From football kits to princess dresses and all the in between.
My favourite doll (that we don’t currently have) is wildlife photographer Mia because Pops is so into taking photos and using the camera she got for her birthday and would really relate to her.
My favourite accessory pack is between the girls united and Astro adventures – Pops loves football because of daddy and she’s really into space and the nights sky which is why we chose ‘stargazer’ to review.
Stargazer Lottie has beautiful red hair and blue eyes and comes with an outfit suited for a night out looking for the stars, as well as that she comes with solar system collector cards, a women in astronomy sheet and a telescope. I chose stargazer Lottie because of Pops’ love of stars and the night sky and also because she has a telescope too!
I love the relate-ability of these dolls and the vision in which they were made
“Our vision, when we first created Lottie, was to develop a range of dolls that would empower children to be them-selves, to be imaginative and adventurous and – most of all – to have fun. We believe that childhood should be an inclusive place where every child belongs regardless of gender, ethnicity or ability. And we’ve made it our mission to do our bit – no matter how small – to protect childhood.”
It’s such an important message to spread to kids, one that even with best intentions from parents gets tackled in so many different areas of life. I aim to make the most well rounded little girl I can, one who loves pink, football, dresses and HULK SMASH but even with her mix of loves she still on occasion says ‘boys things’ and ‘girls things’.
We gave Pops her new Lottie on her birthday just before we headed out to the zoo (which Lottie had to come) however, it was a nice sunny day so a quick change was needed. She got changed into the super Lottie outfit we were also sent.
The super Lottie set is beautiful, so detailed and not too ‘girly’ like most super hero things for girls – it comes with an all in one suit, sparkly cape, golden mask and the coolest winged boots! I wouldn’t mind them branching out to adult clothes, they are so cool.
I think we should all live by Lottie’s rule: Be bold, be brave, be you! It’s definitely something I bring Pops up with in mind.
