Lottie Dolls: a refreshing alternative to Barbie…

Lottie doll outfit designs

F got her first Lottie Dolls this week and she is in love!

She and T spent time looking at the Lottie Doll website (link below) and we found there’s a few fun resources to use.

Whilst I was teaching on Tuesday T and F designed some new clothes for Lottie and the other dolls, I


particularly like T’s rainbow pyjamas.

I posted a while ago about how uncomfortable I was with F having a Barbie due to the unrealistic body shape of the doll. I chatted on my Facebook page with many of you who shared my concerns (and also a few who didn’t; you made me think about my opinion too 🙂 ) and both Hubbie and I just didn’t like to see F play with the ‘women’ dolls.

She’s very happy with Lottie. The clothes are like those that F wears herself, there are sets and clothes that provide aspiration and there are still the princess/fairy dolls that I don’t want F not to have but have them alongside other more positive role models.

F has taken Lottie everywhere with her since Tuesday and is asking about making some clothes for her -I’d made a doll for F before she was born and made clothes so she knows it might be possible.

Anyone else have Lottie Dolls?
