We are very pleased to announce that we have been selected as Lottie Doll Ambassadors.
My kids love playing with role-play sized dolls but Lottie Dolls are special due to the fact that Lottie has a ‘childlike’ body – she doesn’t wear makeup, jewellery or high heels and she can stand on her own two feet (always a useful life skill for all girls and boys, big and small). She’s all about letting kids be kids, doing all the activities a child would do, not growing up too quickly, and presenting a healthy view on body image.
We were lucky to be sent the Butterfly Protector Lottie Doll which is great as we love learning about butterflies.

Every Spring we raise our own butterflies and moths from caterpillars. In the past we have used a kit and raised Painted Lady Butterflies but this year as there was an abundance of caterpillars in the garden we observed different types growing naturally in the garden, including the Cinnabar Moth. We also love to spot the different butterflies in various Butterfly Houses and Forests that we visit such as Bristol Zoo. We know that our new Lottie Doll will love coming on these Butterfly Adventures with us!
The first thing that I liked about the Lottie Doll was the good quality keepsake box which can be used to store your Lottie Doll and accessories and to carry her around in. (Open this box carefully so you can use it again.)
We loved all the Lottie Accessories- she came with binoculars, a butterfly net, butterflies and butterfly life cycle cards. I think it’s great that there is an additional learning element with this doll. I would have liked it if her binoculars could be attached to her but the kids didn’t mind holding them up for her to see through when playing.
Thankfully, all her clothes are easy to get off and put back on again. We love the way she can stand on her own two feet. This will definitely be an advantage when she has other Lottie friends to play with.

Introducing lottie to one of our toy Butterflies.
I think she fits right into our home and Caitlyn already has designs on the Pirate Queen Lottie Doll while Rebecca has asked for the Spring Celebration Ballet Lottie for Christmas as she loves all things Ballet. I love Lighthouse Keeper Lottie as I have a fascination with Lighthouses!
