New Lottie’s have arrived! These dolls aim to provide our children with a healthy alternative to the hyper-sexualised Barbies and Bratz.
The Lottie company Arklu used research and the backing of two academics, Professor David McCarthy and Dr. Margaret Ashwell, to give Lottie the dimensions of a real nine-year-old girl.
Lottie Dolls are a series of dolls created by Arklu Ltd; 'the doll company that is inspired by real kids'. Launched in August 2012, Lottie's motto "Be bold, be brave, BE YOU" reflects the company aim of providing a relatable and childlike doll that encourages kids to be kids. Lottie promotes STEM subjects for kids.
We have Autumn Leaves Lottie Doll. This Lottie loves Autumn and especially the changing colours of the leaves on the trees. Wrapped up warm in her coat, hat, scarf and boots, Lottie explores Harley Wood with her dog, Biscuit the Beagle, kicking her way through all the crisp, colourful leaves. Getting muddy, kicking leaves and building dens is just so much fun!
Next we have Muddy Puddles Lottie Doll When it’s raining outside, Lottie is quick to pull on her raincoat and boots and go on a muddy adventure. Walking through Branksea’s Daffodil Fields, Lottie spots a family of ducks swimming in a murky mud puddle. She loves the sound of the squelch of her boots in the mud, and it is great fun to find the deepest, muddiest puddle and jump up and down in it. Lottie also likes puddle jumping with her friends and having a competition to see who can make the biggest splash.
