Encouraging individuality through play with Lottie Dolls.



I know you all know our love for dolls, but I have to admit I am often dismayed at the selection on offer in toy shops across the UK. Lottie is focused on realistic, young and real dolls to inspire children, and I'm pleased to say I think we've found the doll of every child's dreams.

 



Be bold, be brave, BE YOU!



A catchphrase any parent would love their child to live by, right? I certainly think so. I want my children to be individuals, proud of their differences and unwavering in who they want to be and become. Lottie dolls certainly encourage children to unashamedly be who they are, facing the world head on and with pride.



When Molly (our doll obsessed daughter) was able to choose a doll and an accessory for us to review, she was totally spoilt for choice. There are all kinds of personalities and quirky looks to choose from, from a Wildlife Photographer to Lighthouse Keeper, there are so many to choose from. Eventually, after lots of deliberation, Molly chose Autumn Leaves Lottie (£18.99) and without realising they are matching sets, she chose Biscuit the Beagle (£9.50) to go with her new doll. 







The package arrived in record time and Molly couldn't want to open it. The packaging is bold and colourful and it's made from cardboard and small amount of plastic. There's an explanation on the back of the packaging describing your particular Lottie character, as well as a place to pop a child's name.



We removed Lottie and Biscuits from the packaging and immediately noticed how many layers and accessories were included in both sets. Lottie has a top, tights, skirt, boots, hate, scarf and coat and Biscuits came with a dog bed, dog bag, bone, lead, outfit and a drinking bowl. You definitely get a lot for your money with both sets, and the materials are both rich in colour and high quality.





 


I really like Lottie's design, from her younger frame to how her limbs move, she just feels so much more real than the regular high street shop dolls you see around. I felt Molly could relate to her, and we talked about kicking leaves and autumn as well as playing with Lottie and talking about the care Biscuits would need. 






I can honestly say that Molly has fallen in love with her Lottie doll and her pooch, and I'm not embarrassed to say that so have I. I know that in the future I'll definitely choose Lottie over other brands of doll, because she's a doll Molly can relate to, she feels a lot more appropriate for play and her attitude to life (as seen on the back of the box!) is exciting and inspiring.



I think it's safe to say we'll be building up a collection in the years to come; Lottie dolls are young, realistic and fun dolls for children to treasure forever.
