As much as I love sharing all the big, over-the-top, gifts with you all, there is something oh so special about the smaller, more thoughtful gifts. Everyone need great items to fill stockings or smaller items to gift to friends' or relatives' children.
For girls, dolls are a great choice. They are small, and usually affordable, and they are still fun and special for the child. However, I really don't like how practically every doll nowadays has large breasts, make-up, short, tight, revealing clothing and stilettos. To me, that is not the kind of image you should want your little girls to aspire to, especially since it is actually physically impossible to attain those proportions.
When I discovered Lottie Dolls, it was like a breath of fresh air. These are what little girls' toys should be.
I love that the Lottie Dolls have fun costumes, such as this Pirate Queen Lottie that I chose for my daughter.
Look how adorable that is. It looks like something a young girl should be wearing.
I love how Lottie has a child's figure, and not an adults. We all give our children all these grown up role models/toys and then we seem surprised when they grow up too fast. This doll helps a child embrace being a kid, and that is fabulous.
Also, Lottie's hair is actually manageable unlike most dolls. It will not become a disaster after just a few days like my old dolls' hair used to. As a parent, I love that. My daughter probably won't care, but I cannot stand seeing something I spent money on look like junk after only a short time.
Lottie is smaller than standard dolls, making them the perfect size for smaller hands(and attributing to her child-like appearance) . They are ideal for stockings for this reason too.
I am so glad that I found such a wonderful and wholesome doll for my little girl. I know she will love this. If you have a doll lover on your shopping list this year, I highly recommend giving them a self-esteem-building Lottie Doll.
