We have been chosen as Lottie Ambassadors. Therefore two happy little girls.
Our first Lottie doll has arrived. Light House Keeper Lottie.
Lottie celebrated her two year anniversary last month, having made her appearance in 2012 as the first ever ‘pro-girl’ doll.
Designed for girls aged 3 – 9, Lottie was developed with scientific expertise from leading British academics, alongside consumer research, to address parental concerns over negative body image, an increased perception of premature sexualisation, as well as a desire for a return to good old-fashioned creative and imaginative play.
Lottie dolls differ from other dolls, the main difference being that they have a more child like body. Lottie dolls do not have breasts and also come dressed in age appropriate clothes. No high heels, tattoos, make up or jewellery. Looking at our Lottie doll does make me wonder why certain other dolls come with an older body image and more provocative clothing when aimed at young girls.
Our Lighthouse Keeper Lottie looks very smart . She has the look of a sailor but has a special job of looking after the lighthouse.
Lighthouse Keeper Lottie comes dressed in a nautical blazer, a beret with red bow trim, a blue and white striped Breton top with removable anchor design patch, a blue corduroy skirt, tights, navy Mary Jane shoes, an anchor-themed white corduroy bag and a red, spotty scarf. Her clothes are fully removable and can be washed.
She has lovely long hair which can be brushed and styled. Her hair is actually a similar colour to Jordannas and Izebellas, being a golden blonde shade.
Her arms and legs are fully moveable and Lottie can stand alone.
Lottie dolls are aimed at girls ages 3 and over so Izebella is a little too young to really play alone with one. Jordanna enjoys brushing the dolls hair and interacting Lottie with her other dolls. I sometimes hear her putting on voices whilst playing with her dolls- something most of us ladies did when younger.
Lottie lighthouse keeper is cute and Jordanna will have lots of fun playing with her. The accessory packs look like good stocking filler type presents which girls with Lottie dolls will enjoy using with their doll.
Lottie dolls come at a handy size of 18cms making them a perfect size to take away on holiday.
There are 12 dolls in the Lottie range to choose from and also several accessory sets and extra outfits.
Each doll has a certain inspiration or role. Lighthouse Keeper Lottie is inspired by the women and girls associated with lighthouses throughout history, whose brave and daring exploits contravened all expectations. Such women include Grace Darling in the UK, Ida Lewis and Fannie Mae Salter in the USA, Roberta Boyd in Canada, Grace Bussell in Australia and Mary Jane Bennett in New Zealand.
Each Lottie doll comes in it’s own box with an option on the back to write out a little gift tag.
Lottie have put together this lovely video of Lighthouse Lottie.
Lottie dolls retail at £16.99 each and accessory packs at £7.99.
Lottie dolls are celebrating their second anniversary and to celebrate this there is a chance to win 2 x Lottie dolls and 2 x accessory sets from the existing range.
