Inspiring little adventures with Lottie Dolls

The girls are at such a lovely age. At six, almost four and two their imaginations are really active and they love imaginative play - they have also started playing really beautifully together as a three. I like to give them toys that will spark their imaginations and inspire play, as well as being age appropriate. It is for these reasons that I absolutely love Lottie Dolls and so do the girls.

Suitable for age three and upwards Lottie Dolls are award winning, small 7.5 inch dolls, perfect for little hands and inspired by real children. They are dressed for an adventure and super relatable with the wonderful motto 'Be Bold, Be Brave, Be You! Just the sentiment I want my daughters to aspire to - with a desire to explore, adventure, learn and have fun.

I bought Ellie and Phoebe a Lottie Doll each last Christmas and they were a big hit. We have just added three more dolls to add to our collection along with the Lottie Dolls Tree House for them all to play in. The girls are now proud owners of Pandora's Box Lottie, Birthday Girl Sophia (Lottie's little sister), Forest Friend Lottie, Muddy Puddles Lottie and Autumn Leaves Lottie. There are lots more Lottie Dolls to choose from and i'm sure our collection with grow further Each doll is so different with so much attention to detail. They come beautifully packaged in gorgeous boxes with a little bit about each doll's personality on the box. They make wonderful gifts and are just so enticing, my girl's couldn't wait to get them out of their boxes.

The thing I love about them most is that they represent children being children and everything that is special about childhood. Whether it's jumping in muddy puddles, building dens, caring for animals, having a party or exploring the forest searching for fairies. There are also so many dolls in the collection which serve as brilliant role models for young girls and represent the creativity and curiosity that they should have such as artists, fossil hunters and stargazers.

Lottie dolls also place emphasis on outdoor play and activity, something that is so important to me as a parent and something my girls love. Many of the dolls we have come with coats, hats and boots ready to get out there and explore. The dolls quite often come along with us for a little adventure or out in the garden, they are the perfect companion and fit nicely in a coat pocket or one of their bags!

The girl's have really enjoyed playing with the Tree House and using it as a base for their Lottie Dolls to play in. They love their own playhouse and spend so much time in it, so it's really lovely to see them emulate play with their Lottie dolls in the same way. It's a beautifully made wooden toy which comes complete with a swing, slide, door, rope ladder and secret hatch giving it so much play value.

It's big enough for the girls to play with together but doesn't take up too much space. It's also a great place to store our Lottie Dolls when they are not being played with. One of the walls cleverly drops down so the girls can put their dolls inside easily as well as using the door and hatch. It's on stilts making it the perfect height for play when they girls are sat around it. I am really impressed with it.

There are so many cute accessories to add to your collection and inspire an adventure such as outfits, pets and activities. My personal favourites are the super hero costume and Biscuit the Beagle and I think we might also invest in the stable set and a pony. I think it's brilliant that the accessories allow you to personalise your Lottie Dolls to your child and relate them to their current interests whether it's riding, ballet, brownies, gymnastics, art or sport. It makes them a doll that really grows with your child with endless play opportunities. At £18.99 for a doll and accessories starting from £4.50 I think they are excellent value too.

I adore that Lottie Dolls appeal to all three of my girls and just love seeing and hearing them play with them together and having fun. Sometimes the dolls are sisters, other times friends, either way they have so many little adventures together with my girls just as children should.
