Lottie Doll - Fossil Hunter
Launched in August 2012, Lottie™ is a new, innovative doll for children aged 3- 9. Since her debut, Lottie has won 19 awards in the USA, Canada and UK, including 5 Oppenheim Portfolio Platinum Awards.
Lottie has been based on the scientific proportions of a 9 year old child, with the exception of her head (which has been increased to accommodate hair play). She does not wear jewellery, makeup or high heels. She can stand on her own two feet.
Her clothes are vibrant in colour and have significant attention to detail. Lottie’s clothes are very much activity based, in line with those of a 9 year old instead of an adult. She wears pretty dresses, as well as hard-wearing clothes for muddy, outdoors play. Lottie allows girls to be girls and enjoy their childhood, in all its facets. Lottie’s motto is ‘Be bold, be brave, be you’.
There are different versions of Lottie available plus a horse and different clothes sets.
Fossil Hunter Lottie is excited about going on her summer holidays and looking for fossils on Lincoln Cliff Beach. With her special rock hammer and backpack full of useful gear, Lottie is ready for an adventure at the cliffs by the sea. It is so exciting to think that she might make her own scientific discovery! What will she find? An ammonite? A bone from a plesiosaur? Or maybe even a dinosaur…!
Fossil Hunter Lottie has white skin and dark brown hair and is wearing an olive coloured gilet puffa vest, turquoise blue polo short with an ammonite shell design print, cargo shorts, orange and white stripe socks, sturdy boots and a baseball cap. She also has a rucksack with fossil hunting tools (magnifying glass, trowel and geology hammer) and four ammonite fossils.
The set also includes special collector cards about the British female fossil hunter Mary Anning and has a Notable Women in Paleontology additional sheet
