Searching for original and unique Christmas presents for my 6yr old daughter I found Lottie Dolls A doll that promotes STEM *and* has premium quality hair to play with? I knew Beg would be enamoured with her. I bought her Fossil hunter Lottie for Christmas and I received a Forest Friend Lottie and a Raising the Bar accessory set to write a review about them.

What’s so great about Lottie?
At 18cm tall she’s just the right size for little hands. She lets kids be little by not wearing make-up or high heels. Her proportions and clothes are based on a 9 year old child except for her head which is larger to accommodate hair play. She has lots of different roles like star gazer Lottie and Karate Lottie and the medal on the front of each box is a nod to the suffragette medal of green, white and violet.
Why Parents will love Lottie.
When I showed her the website, Beg was wide-eyed at all the things Lottie can do and she instantly said she would like to be a fossil hunter when she grew up! I love that it has got her thinking about all the things she can do. As a mum the quality of Lottie really struck me, her little clothes are detailed and the feel of the actual doll is different to others we’ve had. Each one has a slightly different skin tone and this got us talking about how everyone’s skin tone is slightly different which I thought was great. I also really liked all Lottie’s accessories, Forest Friend Lottie came with ballet slippers and a bow headband and the Raising the Bar accessory set had a leotard, medal, competitor number and jogging bottoms. These kept Beg occupied for ages switching round the roles and game situations. I also love the little background story each Lottie comes with, it’s these little touches that set her apart from other dolls.
What Beg thought of Lottie.
She likes dressing her and playing with all the accessories the most. She bends her knees for the gymnastics competitions and often they are sisters supporting one another at the competitions. She noticed how lovely and soft Lottie’s hair is to play with and on one of our YouTube videos she exclaims “She’s got chocolate eyes, just like me!” Which I think Lottie company Arklu would be pleased about as Lottie is based on real girls.
Forest Friend Lottie is £18.99 and the Raising the Bar accessory pack is £9.50. You can join club Lottie on the website (which is what I did) for details of promotions and upcoming discounts. Lottie can be bought online.
