LottieCollageCheck it out! Knowledge Tree has some amazing new dolls with a story all their own!

Lottie dolls are award winning “Positive Role Model” dolls with “age appropriate body shapes.” What is unique about these dolls? What makes them so different from any other doll? Lottie has a ‘childlike’ body developed by British academics; she doesn’t wear make up, jewellery, or high heels. Best of all, she can stand on her own two feet – an invaluable life skill for all girls, big and small. Each set has her own story of adventure. Whether she is attending the Winter Ball or throwing down in Karate class, Lottie provides a positive role model for all who play with her.

Lottie’s Key Features*:

Child-Like Body
Lottie’s body is based on the average proportions of a 9 year old girl, developed alongside academics in the areas of child psychology and nutrition. Lottie represents a healthy view on body image, and is a positive role model.
Age Appropriate
Lottie is all about doing many of the activities a real child her age would do, and is not concerned with growing up too quickly. Lottie doesn’t wear make-up, high-heels or jewellery.
Ethnically Diverse
Lottie dolls come in a range of diverse eye, hair and skin colours.
Relatable #justlikeme
Lottie wears the kind of clothes that kids wear in real-life, whether that is pretty party dresses, hard-wearing clothes and boots to get muddy outdoors, sportswear or fun dress-up costumes! Lottie is doing all the activities that ‘real’ kids do; be they ‘girly’ activities like ballet, or imaginary tea parties, getting muddy outdoors, being sporty and active, as well as robot- building projects, to stargazing and fossil-hunting. Imaginative dress-up play too, whether as a Queen or a pirate or superhero. Lottie represents all the positive, different facets of childhood, without limitation.
Tactile Fabric and Hair
Lottie’s hair is made from premium quality Saran, which has a wax component and a silky texture which means it does not tangle or knot. Lottie’s clothing is composed of tactile fabric, with great attention to detail, and has Velcro fastenings, easy to dress and undress.
Bendable Knees
Lottie encourages children to be active and outdoorsy, she has bendable knees, and ball socket hips and arms. Lottie’s head can move from side to side, and Lottie can do the splits, all of which help for gymnastics, karate and playing with friends.

Awards
Lottie has won 19 International awards, including 5 Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Awards.
