I received a Lottie Doll and outfit in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.
As women, we often struggle with our body image. We often look in the mirror and say bad things about the way we look. We step on the scale and mutter at the number, and often call ourselves names. Unfortunately, we are doing this in front of our little girls. Our little girls want to be “skinny” or “pretty” like their fashion dolls, or the people they see on television. If mom’s not happy with how she looks why would they be. Their sense of what is truly beautiful can often be warped by what they see and what they hear.
That’s why Lottie Dolls has released a line of realistic fashion dolls. The dolls are not like all the other typical dolls on the market. You usually see dolls with unrealistic proportions and suggestive clothes, but Lottie Dolls are modeled after the girls that play with them! Lottie is modeled after a 9 year old girl, instead of a suggestively dressed teenager. Lottie also has aimed a line of dolls towards developing girls sense of learning especially in science, math, technology and engineering with Butterfly Protector and Robot Girl Lottie.
All of my girls enjoyed playing with Lottie. She’s aimed for ages 3 and up, so my Harley 3, Sophie 7 and Abby 11, all had a great time playing with her. They loved her cute clothes and hair. They raved about her standing on her own feet. She’s still a great size to fit in their cars and furniture from their other dolls. I love the price of the Lottie Dolls. She’s comparatively priced with many other fashion dolls, and cheaper than many “specialty dolls” that you will find in the high end toy shops.
