Forest Friend Lottie Doll & Scooter Set Review

We’re big fans of Lottie Dolls in the house. If you haven’t heard of them before, Lottie Dolls are children’s dolls aimed at empowering children to be well, children. They are age appropriate, look like children, dress like children and encourage them to engage in outdoor play. The bodies of the dolls are designed on the proportion of a 9-year-old. And, as a mother, I love this ethos.

Dolls for children should look like children, and toys for children should encourage the outdoors, imagination and creativity. Of course, the obvious comparison is Barbie and as a girl I loved Barbie, so I’m not here to dismiss Barbie, but at the same time, I don’t think all of her ideals are always the best match for young children. What I love about Lottie Dolls is that they are all about children. No make-up, a child’s shape and child’s clothes.

Aria already has a couple of Lottie Dolls – The Lighthouse Lottie Doll (which has been discontinued) and Muddy Puddles Lottie Doll. For the purpose of this review, Aria has been sent a doll from their new collection, the Forest Friends Lottie Doll. She was also sent the Scooter Set from their accessories range.

As soon as the doll arrived we have to take her out for a little trip. First, we went to the forest. A forest fairy should visit a forest should she not? Then we took Lottie to the park. Lottie went on the swings, slide and the bouncer. Both Lottie and Aria had a great time!

The next day, we got out Lottie’s scooter set so that Aria could try that out. The set comes in parts, a scooter with clip on handles, a helmet for Lottie and a ramp for her to scoot over along with some stickers on a sheet that Aria and I stuck on the ramp together. Aria really enjoying playing with something with Lottie that she herself plays with and it worked well playing in the garden.

There is one thing I would improve about the Scooter Set. As you can see in the above photo it has little loops that you can clip onto the handles so that Lottie can put her her hands in and hold onto the scooter. These handles were really fiddly, you had to clip them onto the handles, but they really easily fell off. Whenever Aria is playing with them I am constantly being asked to clip them on. I’m actually tempted to super glue them on, but I don’t think they need to be separate clip-ons, it would be great if the handles were just built into the scooter design.

We really have both loved the items we were sent from Lottie Dolls. Aria adored the Forest Friends doll and thought she was a fairy. She is a lovely size that means she is really easy for Aria to carry about with her and take on adventures. Despite a small niggle with the scooter set, it’s a great little add on, that encourages imaginative play and is a nice toy that children can recognise that they will play with themselves.
