Muddy Puddles Lottie Doll – Review & Giveaway

If you’re a regular reader of the blog then you will know I have a little girl. A little girl that is obsessed with dolls and everything related to them. Recently she’s taken an interest in older looking dolls and I have to admit I cringe a little at the sight of a 2 year old playing with a fully matured ‘mummy’ doll as she calls them. Don’t get me wrong, I’m more than happy for her to play with dolls of all shapes, colours and sizes but lets be honest. These dolls only really come in one shape and size and this is what I’m not too sure about yet. Enter the Lottie Doll.

I have to say when the team got in touch to see if we wanted to become a Lottie Doll ambassador I had never heard of them but the more I looked into it, the more I loved it. Based on a concept of imagination and adventure, the Lottie Doll has the proportions of a 9 year old child. A childs toy that actually looks like a child.  I loved it!

And I wasn’t the only one.

THE REVIEW

We chose the Muddy Puddles Lottie Doll and Pandora the Persian Cat as the Bear is cat obsessed at the moment. Well packaged, Lottie and Pandora are immediately attractive and look to offer hours of fun. In fact, both the doll and the cat were so pleasing to the eye that she demanded that they immediately be removed from their boxes so they could be played with.

The Bear immediately loved the cat – just as I knew she would – and spent some time grooming, feeding and putting Pandora to bed. In stepped Lottie and the real imaginative play began and Pandora the cat and Lottie chatted between themselves. The toys are very well constructed and we both loved Lotties bright outfit which was lovely and tactile and the Bear took great pleasure in removing. Why do kids just want to get their toys naked?!

However it soon began to rain much to the Bears utter glee, afterall Lottie was dressed to splash in muddy puddles right? Out we trekked to the shop in the drizzle so the Bear and Lottie could jump in every puddle they came across. To say she took the name literally and to heart is an understatement but it was great to watch.

THE DETAILS

The Muddy Puddles Lottie Doll retails at £18.99 and Pandora the Persian Cat is £9.50. You can find the entire Lottie Doll range on their website.

THE VERDICT 

Lets put it this way. Lottie has come most places with us since we received it which is high praise in itself. Whenever it rains the Bear demands that she go outside to splash in muddy puddles with her. She loves the colours and the clothes and I love the fact that it’s a childs toy that feels age appropriate for my 2 year old to play with as she starts the slow transition over from dolls that look like babies, to dolls that start to look like her. This one does look like her (albeit a few years older!) which makes me a happy mummy.

    I love the fact the doll actually looks like a child. Kids grow up far too fast as it is and shouldn’t need to worry about having breasts like barbie etc for many years.

    I love Lottie dolls, they are excellent dolls for little girls, and focus on learning, hobbies and knowledge instead of being focused on body image and clothing.

    Adorable dolls and lots of details on their accessories
