Pirate Queen Lottie Doll

When I was a little girl, playing with dolls was one of my all-time favorite things to do.  My most favorite of games with them was to set up a classroom and be their teacher, complete with dishing out the assignments, and making them clean the blackboard erasers if they didn't pay attention (blackboards were 'in' in my day). ;)

The Lottie Dolls would have been right up my alley.  Not only are they completely poseable (for sitting in classroom seats or pounding erasers), but they also have the beautiful, silky long hair that I know I would have loved.

Lottie Dolls are fully poseable.
They sit with their legs straight.

They sit with their knees bent

And they stand on their own.

I love that they bend! Nothing is worse than to have a cute doll but she can't move at all. It takes the imagination right out of the fun. Not so with these dolls.  The Lottie Dolls are jointed to move. In addition to the knees bending, the arms move, and the head also can be moved from side-to-side.

Designed for children ages 3-9, Lottie Dolls strives to impress both equality and a good body image to children. Costumed in gender-neutral costumes such as a pirate, a karate outfit, and a robot suit, their new line of dolls also sets out to break stereotypes...and they do so with a boat load of confidence and cute.

The winner of 12 awards since their inception in 2012, including three Oppenheim Portfolio Platinum Awards, these dolls have been met with the grand seal of approval from organizations and parents alike.



There are four new dolls and quite a few accessories that have been added to the Lottie line in 2013. You can see them below (click on the pictures to make them bigger).

The dolls are 7.5 inches high, so they're easy for little hands to carry, and they are very portable too (for travel and such).  They are also designed after a nine-year old girl, and look just exactly how a little girl should look (real). Encouraging little girls to be little girls (and not want to grow up too fast), the Lottie Dolls don't wear jewelry or makeup, and they are able to stand on their own two feet (literally and figuratively).

The accessories that come with them are designed well and help encourage imagination.  I think with Christmas coming up (or even birthdays, special occassions, etc.) these dolls and accessories would be a great gift idea. I like that they help foster independence and confidence in little girls. I also like that they help encourage the message that our little ones truly can grow up to be anything or anyone they want to be.

You can learn more about the fabulous Lottie Dolls by visiting their website.

You can also follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Pinterest.

One lucky winner is going to get a doll and accessory kit of choice.

  27. I like that the dolls are modest; meaning they don't look like little girls trying to be 29 years old. I also like the little outfits and accessory sets, like the picnic set. -Audra O'Hara

  40. Lottie is first and foremost a child of nine (9) with a child-like body. She does not wear makeup, nor does she sport tattoos, jewellery or high heels. She loves to dress up in pretty clothes but is equally happy to be active, outdoors and getting muddy.
