Lottie - A Doll To Inspire | A Review and Competition

Thursday, 19 October 2017
When I was younger I was a huge fan of Barbie dolls, I mean who wasn’t? At one stage, each birthday and Christmas I would get more to add to my collection. Looking back, Barbie dolls really were the only doll around on the market, then came other alternatives but each like the others never really reflecting that of a ‘real person’.

Luckily, we can now say hello to Lottie Dolls, these are dolls inspired by children of today. They are a similar size to Barbies but much more realistic. Lottie Dolls are based on the proportions of a 9 year old, representing a healthy view on body image and a positive role model to children unlike other dolls. No make-up, no heels and no revealing clothing.

We were recently asked if we would like to review a couple of dolls from the collection, and I knew they would be something Isla would love. Choosing which dolls to have was the most difficult decision, with Isla picking them all as her favourite. There are over 20 female dolls and 2 male dolls to choose from with the range ever expanding, then also a range of accessories to add too. In the end we opted for Muddy Puddles – as this is an activity Isla absolutely loves, and Pony Club as she has a new found love for Ponies.  

Pony Club was the one Isla initially went to, instantly screeching ‘Ahhh’ when looking at the pony, she just couldn’t wait to open them up and play. Lottie Dolls encourage imaginative play with the various accessories, which as we know is great for a child’s development. One thing I liked in comparison to Barbie is the fact Lottie can stand on her own two feet, literally. You can still move the arms and legs, but due to the size and how they are made, Lottie can stand alone making play much more creative. Each doll is designed with any regular child in mind, and allows each child to take on their own individuality when playing. Lottie doesn’t restrict how a child can play, allowing anything from frilly ball grows to pirates and everything else too.

We are lucky enough, to be able to give one lucky reader the chance to win a Muddly Puddles Lottie Doll.
