For a child, a doll can become more than just a toy to play with. It often becomes a friend, and in some cases, a role model. So many fashion dolls on the market however, have unrealistic features and measurements and I know as a parent, this is not the type of role model I want for my child. I believe in doing everything I can to raise my daughter to have a healthy body image. When I discovered Lottie Dolls, I was thrilled. These fashion dolls have the proportions of a typical 9-year-old and are designed to defy conventional stereotypes.
Arklu was founded in 2010 and in 2012, the company launched Lottie Dolls. Based in Donegal and on the North-West coast of Ireland, the company is made up of a team dedicated to preserving the magic of childhood. Their vision is to develop dolls that empower children and encourage them to be themselves.
Lottie Dolls are dressed in comfortable, colorful outfits made from tactile fabrics. They do not wear makeup, jewelry, high heels, or other outlandish accessories. The dolls can stand on their own, even when wearing shoes, and they have bendable knees with ball socket hips and arms.
