Raising girls can be scary. Messages come at them from every side of who they should be, what they should look like, and how they should act. Finding products like Lottie Dolls makes my job easier at filtering those messages. I received Lottie Dolls for review. All opinions are my own honest thoughts.
Lottie Dolls send one very specific message that I can get behind, and that is to just be you! The dolls themselves are modeled after what an average 9-year-old girl looks like. This is truly the one message I think all girls need to learn early.
Love yourself. You don’t have to be super skinny like most dolls are. You don’t need to be mean like some dolls are marketed as. All you need to be is you. To enjoy life and make every occasion a bit of an adventure.
Muddy Puddles Lotti Doll is easily our favorite. She wears no makeup – none of the Lottie Dolls do – sports a bright yellow rain jacket and slickers. At first glance, there isn’t anything terribly special about Muddy Puddles.
My girls immediately fell in love with her. We get huge puddles around our yard when it rains, and they love to go jump in the puddles. I’ve seen so many fantastic interactions between my children when the puddles appear. So Muddy Puddles fits right into their life.
Lottie Dolls also have accessories like this scooter. It’s another item that fits right into their life. The helmet is my favorite touch, as it comes with a chin strap and reminds my girls that they should also wear helmets when riding around.
We also had the chance to check out the Snow Queen Lottie Doll. I love how different, but also similar this doll is to Muddy Puddles. The girls immediately noticed that Muddy Puddles and Snow Queen look like twins. One is practical while the other is more of a dreamer. It’s a perfect blend of messages I want my girls to listen to. Love who you are, but don’t be afraid to dream big, where ever that may take them.
