Lottie

http://www.lottie.com

Lottie™ is an alternative ‘pro-girl’ doll for children aged 3-8. Lottie is a positive take on childhood – she doesn’t wear make-up, jewellery or high heels and she can stand on her own two feet. She has soft, strokable hair and colourful clothes with high quality, quirky details. Unlike other fashion dolls, Lottie’s body is also properly ‘childlike,' and based upon the proportions of a nine year old girl. Lottie is all about letting children be themselves, not growing up too quickly, and presenting a healthy view on body image.
