A few weeks ago Jordanna received her first Lottie doll as part of us being Lottie Ambassadors. If you missed the post or are unsure what Lottie dolls are then you can read it here.
Lottie dolls are designed with young girls in mind and come with a girls body image (no breasts) they are also free of make up, jewellery and provocative clothing.
New dolls in the Lottie range and introduced regularly along with cool outfits and accessories.
One of the latest additions is a Super Lottie Outfit
It’s hard to believe but this outfit is actually designed by a child.
6 year old Lily from Ohio USA created the winning design as part of a global competition, independently judged by the Brave Girls Alliance, earlier in the year.
As part of her entry, Lily was asked to define Super Lottie’s abilities. Lily’s response was one designed to inspire girls who play with Lottie dolls, to acknowledge and embrace their potential, and accept who they are: ‘Super Lottie has the power to be anything, to do anything, and to make the world a better place. She is unique and special in her own way’.
The competition was a result of a campaign launched to demonstrate that girls can be superheroes too. A poll conducted among parents, demonstrated a severe lack of female representation in the world of super-powers, where of the top female superhero characters popularised by comic creators and film-makers, not one could be identified by 100% of respondents. In stark contrast, four male superhero characters could be identified by 100% of respondents; Superman, Spiderman, Batman and Hulk.
The outfit is all about letting girls know that they too can be superheroes if they wish or anything else they want to be. It’s no longer just boys who have superhero powers
It is a 5 piece outfit consisting of the Super Lottie suit, mask, cape and super hero boots. All being shiny, sparkly and still very girly. The outfit will fit any Lottie doll.
Jordanna seems to have a thing for undressing and redressing all her dolls and constantly wants new outfits so this one made her smile. She does like the shininess of it all.
She especially loves the gold boots with the superhero wings on them.
Lottie dolls became the first fashion dolls to display childlike characteristics; a healthy childlike body shape, childlike clothing (no make-up, high heels, tattoos, etc) and wholesome activities. In 2014, Arklu took things a step further by introducing a range of dolls exploring gender empowering, adventurous themes.
