There are so many fashion doll brands for little girls on the market but my husband and I consider most to be inappropriate for our seven year old daughter. I was very excited to discover the Lottie Doll collection because this 7.5” tall fashion doll was designed specifically to be a wholesome alternative by featuring the body of a realistic 9 year old child who doesn’t wear make-up, jewelry or high heels. Hannah has finally found a fashion doll that is age appropriate and that she can relate too while role-playing and going on fun adventures.
I am teaching my daughter to grow up confident in herself with less focus on body image and more focus on activities of her interest. I love that Lottie has similar interests and even introduces Hannah to fun new interests and activities such as “Butterfly Protector”, “Robot Girl”, “Pirate Queen”, “Lighthouse Keeper”, “Kawaii Karate” and “Pandora’s Box”. There are also lots of neat fashion accessories such as Autumn Leaves, Spring Celebration Ballet and Snow Queen Lottie and additional accessory sets for all types of fun, imaginative play. At the top of her wish list is the Seren the Welsh Mountain Pony because she dreams longingly of owning her own horse one day.
As a mother, I appreciate that Lottie dolls ($19.99 each) are designed beautifully with soft hair that resists knotting, bendable knees, ball socket hips and arms and a moveable head. Hannah fell in love with the Butterfly Protector Lottie because these two new “friends” both love gardening and learning about plants and butterflies. This neat doll features fun accessories such as a butterfly net, binoculars and an educational cards. Hannah enjoyed the tiny collector cards which teaches about the life cycle of the butterfly and reinforces to little girls that it is an excellent achievement to be interested in and excel at science.
Since Hannah also loves practicing her cartwheels and watching gymnastics I knew that she would enjoy dressing Lottie in the Raising the Bar Gymnastics Set ($9.99) which includes a leotard, competition number, gold metal and tracksuit pants. Hannah and Lottie had fun going for the Gold medal!
The Oppenheim award-winning Lottie doll collection is an inspirational and attractively priced gift idea for girls ages 3 and up. This is a doll collection that I can feel good about when watching my daughter role play as she goes on exciting adventures with her doll. You are invited to visit the Lottie website to learn more about this doll brand and to purchase your favorites including Lottie dolls, accessory sets, outfit sets and the Pony which is at the top of my daughter’s Christmas wish list. Which one would your child love the most this holiday season?
