Lottie Doll - A (better than Barbie) Giveaway

Only a few decades years ago when I was a little girl, I loved trucks and Lego and my trampoline.

I wasn't really a girly-girl who liked dolls.

I did, however, have a soft spot for Gem and The Misfits - because they were truly truly truly outrageous.

And rocked girl-mullet's like nobody's business.

Barbie was for wimps who wanted to wear pink bikinis and matching high heels while driving their matching convertible to go ride their non-pink horse in their bikini and heels.

Totally realistic goal for little girls the world over, right?

Not you, Paris Hilton.  You don't count.

Don't even get me started on my opinions of how appropriate the make up on the faces, the figures, the tight tops and mini skirts are on dolls recommended for young girls Miss5's age....

Of my girls, Miss8 is the one who loves make up and nail polish and occasionally using them on herself instead of the furniture.

Miss5, on the other hand, is a total clone of my good self.  Lucky her!

So it came as a surprise to me that she, not Miss8, started playing with dolls.

Sure, she mostly uses them to play out WWE meets The Hunger Games tournaments in a decapitation death match role play scenario.

Granted, she often uses them to swear on her behalf.

The main thing I've noticed is that she has zero interest in the fashion / dress up / traditional role of dolls.  Clearly.

I'm kind of thrilled, because her imagination means that she doesn't seem to care that the doll is missing its handbag, and it's completely normal to put the dolls in the Hot Wheels garage to fix Mstr5's cars.

I love that she is growing up with more 'non-traditional' views on girls, albeit via a 5 year old's role playing with a few dolls.

My dolls of choice for her next birthday will be these - 

  

Be bold, be brave, be you


Lottie is a feisty character, she can stand on her own two feet and whist she occasionally makes mistakes, she learns from them.  She is not perfect.  Lottie loves adventure and the outdoors and uses her imagination.


Exactly the message I want to send to my girls.

And no unrealistic body, make up, clothing or high heels to boot.

In fact, call me crazy, but these little girl dolls actually resemble....little girls.

Fist bump, Lottie.
