The gorgeous Lottie Doll by Arklu wanted a doll that was realistic to young girls instead of the normal big boobed, long legs, teeny waist Barbie type doll making girls and Mommies, yes me haha, compare themselves to a bloody doll and they’ve done a great job making this a reality in my opinion.
I think these dolls give a much better perception for impressionable little girls, they take everything in after all, and the more I hear about girls wanting to look like Barbie when they are older the more it scares me. So it’s a very nice and welcome change to see a brand that makes normal proportioned child like dolls, making girls feel they are perfect the way they are :)
My daughter loves her new doll, she said she’s really ”cute” It’s also that little bit smaller than a Barbie which is nice.
Lottie is supposed to be a 9-year-old girl by the way and likes to play dress up and play outdoors :)
You can see the full range of Lottie Dolls and accessories here. Also on their website they have loads of fun stuff for kids colouring pages etc and competitions. Check them out on Facebook and Twitter also. Lottie Dolls are available here in Ireland from Smyths for €19.99
What do you guys think? Has your little girl got one? I think I’ll be buying these instead of Barbie’s from now on they really are adorable.
