Good news on the doll front - Lottie Dolls are appropriate for the young girl. [Plan now for Christmas!]

The wondrous beauty of a child in his or her innocence and youth is truly remarkable. And children’s play should never disrupt this state of youthful innocence. Therefore, implements of play – toys – that are inappropriate for the child’s age betray and disrupt the normal development of the child.

Play is the work of children

It is the responsibility of adults with the oversight of the child, to provide appropriate toys. This has been my firm belief through the years when I raised my five children and followed the childhood of my 13 grandchildren. For this reason, I was selective in my choice of toys for them.

I recently stumbled across a new brand and style of dolls. These are the Lottie Dolls. They definitely receive a “Chat With Vera” seal of approval and high recommendation. Here are some of the reasons….
  • These are beautifully designed and well-crafted.
  • They are designed to accurately represent a 9-year old girl in body build and proportions.
  • You won't find makeup, jewelry, or high heels.
  • The clothes and accessories are of quality materials, well made, and well designed.
  • The dolls represent a broad spectrum of personalities and girl's activities.
Looking at the English Country Garden Lottie Doll, she has on a sweet little jumper style dress with appliques, a ruffle, and pocket. Her shoes are sweet Mary Jane slippers and she has white socks. She has a sweet, innocent expression on her face as befits the innocence of a young girl. She is ready for sweet little hands to hold her, bend her arms and legs in various positions, and dress her.

Perfect in size to carry to all those excursions little girls like to go on without taking up too much space. She is 18cm tall (roughly 7").  Beautifully packaged for gifting. This lovely little doll has won 19 international awards, including 5 Oppenheim Portfolio Platinum Awards.

There are a variety of accessory packs. I received the hair care pack with brush, hair rubber bands, and a little drawstring baggie to store them. These are perfect for brushing and fixing the doll's soft, silky hair.

Where can Lottie Dolls be found? They have their own website - Lottie Dolls. But they may also be found on Amazon and on Barnes and Noble. Dolls range $19.95 to $24.95 and accessory packs are around $10. Outfits are $9.99. There is even a Finn (boy) doll as well.

Award-winning, childlike dolls, that empower young minds and nurture individuality through play

Created in England by folks that want to assure that children at play are nurtured by their play with toys that are age appropriate.

DISCLOSURE: I was provided a complimentary doll and accessory pack to facilitate this review. Opinions joyfully expressed are mine. I was not compensated for this review.
