Lottie Dolls Review + Giveaway


Having two girls, I am determined to help feel confident in themselves. I want them to feel happy in their bodies. There are many things out there these days that can make children feel down about the way they look. I personally think no child should wear make up or short shorts or any crop tops. They should feel happy in their skin, not cover themselves up with foundation, mascara and the rest. We are the parents, we are the ones who need to reassure them to be confident in themselves.

Growing up, I was a huge fan of Barbie dolls, and there never was a real-life looking doll around. Over the years body image has become a huge thing to most women and men too, which is a shame as no one should be ashamed of their body. But when you see celebs bodies being overly photoshopped and such, it's quite hard not to feel just a tad upset. However, the last thing I want my girls to do is to compare themselves to others. I want them to feel happy in themselves. 


This is where we can say good-bye to the Barbies and hello to the Lottie Dolls. Lottie Dolls are dolls that have been inspired by kids. Each doll is made to look like an average 9-year-old child. No make up, no heels, no fancy dresses. They wear comfortable, colourful clothing. We had the great chance to review a doll and an accessory. There are 5 dolls available, including a boy doll called Finn. From Robot girl to Muddy Puddle Lottie. We chose the Muddy Puddles Lottie Doll, and the girls absolutely love her. They loved her bright yellow jacket and wellington boots the most. 

We also chose Sirius the Welsh Mountain Pony. Mia absolutely adores horses and ponies, she was super excited when she saw it. She couldn't wait to open it and play. I thought it was lovely that it was a Welsh pony, perfect for us as we are Welsh. The girls have had hours of fun with their new toys. I can most definitely see the difference in the Lottie Dolls and a Barbie doll. I'd much prefer to spend my money on a Lottie Doll instead of a Barbie doll.
