Lottie, Light House Keeper Doll Review


Come on in to read the adventures of Lottie Light house keeper with J and S.... a story by a 5 and 3 year old about their dolls.

The story goes a bit like this... the dolls house is now a new light house, with a big light on the top, that stops the boats coming to close to land. Lottie has to stay in the house, to make sure its working, and keep an eye out for boats passing by.
 
 
If she needs to go and get a closer look, she must wear the blazer and scarf, to keep warm, and her bag just in case she needs anything..
 
 
Just like any little girl, whether she has a job to do or not, her hair has to look perfect... 

...and she must get enough sleep, so she can keep protecting the boats...


Ready to start the look out adventures the next day....


Well, it went something like that, with a lot more..."oh no... the lights not working, the boat is coming in too quick....quick.. quick" and then Lottie wanted a go on the boat too, and didn't want to work all the time... I just love the imagination of the girlies. All what was needed for them to step away from the electronics and TV after school, was a new doll each. So lets introduce Lottie....


This is Lottie, the Light house keeper doll. (RRP £16.99) She is unlike most fashion dolls, as she does not wear make up or high heels. Nor does she have the large perfect breasts and narrow waist. She is very child like, with flat shoes, big innocent eyes, and "normal" clothes. She evens stands unaided. She comes in many other styles, but all innocent, which can be found here
 

I think she is very stylish, even in her "job role" clothes. Isn't she beautiful? Both girls could not wait to get her out the box.

 
She is smaller then Barbie dolls, but not too small. S can get a good grip around her legs, without her being too big to control.
 
 
The girls loved having a different doll that taught them a little too. On the back of the box is a description of what her role is, hence the way the game played out.. they learnt something through play. J loved her new friend so much, she even had to tuck her into bed with her at the end of the adventurous day.
As a mother of two young girls, its nice to see a doll brand that is not in favour of  the make up, "blonde bimbo" stereotype of dolls, and come up with something fresh and pleasing. I will be following them closely to see what they will bring to the doll industry, as I'm already loving what they have done so far. You can too on Facebook here.

  1. This is such a lovely idea, I like the idea of teaching young girls that the barbie look isn't an idealised look and that dressing like Lottie is a norm. xx
