What It Is
Lottie is a new doll brand that includes six different seven-inch, dolls. Snow Queen Lottie is going to the Lottieville Masked Ball wearing a sparkly mask and a snowflake-studded blue-and-white gown. Spring Celebration Ballet Lottie is performing in the ballet at the Lottieville Theatre in a sparkly pink-and-purple leotard and tutu. Lottieville Festival Lottie is ready for summer and the annual Lottieville Festival. The doll wears striped tights, corduroy shorts, rain boots, a top, jacket, and messenger bag. Autumn Leaves Lottie is wrapped up in a coat, hat, scarf, and boots for a fall walk through the Lottieville Forest. Pony Flag Race Lottie loves riding horses and competing at her local pony club. The doll wears traditional equestrian gear. English Country Garden Lottie is ready for a picnic in a pink-and-green dress.
Each doll has high-quality Japanese hair that is soft and does not easily tangle. Some of the dolls come with Velcro patches that can be mixed and matched among the dolls. The dolls also have moveable joints for poseable play and flat feet so that the dolls stand on their own. The packaging for each doll can be reused and has a carry handle.
Unlike other fashion dolls that are more "adult" in tone, Lottie does not wear make-up, tattoos, jewelry, or high heels. Arklu says that the Lottie doll body (with the exception of the head) is based on the actual proportions of those of a 9-year-old child. The realistic body proportions are designed to promote a healthy body image for young girls.
Why It’s Fun
Lottie dolls are cute dolls that will engage kids in lots of imaginative play. The Lottie dolls engage in activities familiar to kids (ballet, horseback riding), and kids will like collecting dolls that do the same things they do and that also look similar to the way they look. Kids who are engaged with these dolls may want to collect several of them.
Who It’s For
Lottie dolls are for ages 3 and up.
