With everything from dolls, to clothes and accessories, these dolls offer kids toys modeled on actual kids, rather than unrealistic adult proportions. Based on average measurements for nine year olds, each doll can stand on its own feet. Measuring about seven inches tall, these dolls not only travel easily between home and outings, but also take up less storage space than bigger dolls. With movable arms, legs, and heads, these dolls will pose in a variety of positions to inspire even more play.
What’s more, the clothing fits all the dolls, regardless of gender. You can find Lottie dolls based on a variety of different cultures, from Asian to African American and around the globe. Lottie dolls also offer a wide range of diversity, including dolls with cochlear implants and more.
What you won’t find is a Lottie doll in makeup, heels, or jewelry. Instead of adult concepts, these dolls inspire girls to think beyond the traditional female roles. Lottie dolls include astronomers, explorers, and much, much more. With more than 30 themes to choose from, parents can find a doll that encourages their own child’s interests, inspired by kids in real life.
The company behind the dolls aims to minimize their plastic packaging, making these dolls accessible to kids right from the start without the usual frustrations of tightly sealed plastic containers. They use high quality materials meant to last more than one generation, and the accessories come packed with tiny details from start to finishing trim. Whether you choose a doll, a play set, clothing, or other accessory, you won’t be disappointed with the quality of these toys.
If you want a realistic doll that supports diversity and focuses on positive role models, look no further than Lottie dolls.
