Lottie Dolls Rockabilly and Fossil Hunter Review and Giveaway

Lottie is up there as one of my favourite dolls. I am so happy to be able to introduce my daughter to these dolls to be able to show her a positive role model of how a child could be.

This is not my first Lottie Doll review and so you can read my last one on the other dolls I reviewed here


The thing I love the most about Lottie is her child like figure. Based on a body of an 8 year old. It is realistic and natural and does not give children an impression that they need to grow up fast. Like so many other dolls do. 

Lottie dolls are all about recognising how important childhood is and so they base the characters of their dolls on the hobbies and interests of children themselves. Encouraging them to be interested in sports, music, getting outdoors, science and simply just being a child. I love that Lottie really want to promote a child being who ever they want to be and showing them that they can aspire to do the things they want to do. Ballet, Art, Astronomer, but also showing that its absolutely fine to just be a child and do what children do. Jump in muddy puddles, playing out, dressing up. Lottie dolls are a really good role model for children and the perfect doll to become your child's best friend. 



Lottie sent us 2 dolls to review and tell you all about. 

The first is Rockabilly Lottie Doll.


Dressed in her vintage-style jacket and glasses, Lottie heads over to the Victorian Bandstand to listen to live music performances. It’s fun to listen to new bands and musicians, discover different types of music, and let loose and dance. Lottie isn’t the greatest dancer, but she’s happy to do her own thing, and isn’t scared to march to the beat of her own drum, and be herself. After a day of music and laughter, Lottie heads home with a spring in her step.

Another place Rockabilly Lottie loves to go is the arcade! There are always lights flashing, music playing and she can play her favourite retro games. So one day on holiday Lily and I decided to take her to the nearby arcade with us. 



Rockabilly Lottie is so cool. Her outfit is so retro and its really refreshing to see a girls doll wearing blue. I dress Lily in blue a lot as I think it looks really nice. She wears a white t shirt with a music symbol on, a blue and white jacket, a light blue tutu, red, pink and white leggings and blue trainers. Then not forgetting she wears her pink bow to finish it all off. On the back of the jacket it says "Be Bold, Be You" which is a great slogan for children to read. 
Rockabilly Lottie also wears glasses which is also refreshing to see on a doll. They are really cool retro looking red ones that match her outfit so well. I think its great to have a doll with glasses that aren't actual sun glasses. So children with glasses can relate to her. 





The next doll that we got sent was Fossil Hunter. 

Summer holidays and Lottie can’t wait to go to Lincoln Cliff Beach to look for fossils. 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…!

This was perfect to take on our holidays with us as we were heading to Dorset where one of the first ever female fossil hunters made her discoveries. Lily and I decided to take her to the pebble beach and to the rock pools to see what we could find. 


Fossil Hunter Lottie is dressed in a blue top with a fossil on it, a green sleeveless jacket, some brown shorts with pockets, stripy socks and brown boots. She also comes with a brown hat. She comes with many accessories which include a brown backpack, which you can actually place things inside, tools, fossils, and some fact sheets all about her idol Mary Anning who was the fossil hunter I mentioned earlier. 



Fossil Hunter is cool but in a compleatly different way to Rockabilly Lottie. I love the fact that she has an interest that is outdoors and relating to science. Her fashion sense shows that girls don't always have to dress girly and girls can be just as adventurous as boys when it comes to climbing around rock pools to hunt for fossils. 





Lily really enjoyed playing with these dolls over the holiday and taking them out with her on trips out. She would talk to them, brush their hair and sit them next to her as she enjoyed her holiday activities. There is definetly a possibility that they could become Lily's best friends. 

I must also mention that the quality of these dolls are brilliant. I have noticed that their hair stays quite neat and doesn't easily knot. The arms and legs are made from a great quality plastic which means that the legs can be bent at the knee's for Lottie to sit down, and the head of the doll is very strong and can't be squished like some dolls heads can be. All the clothing is made in such detail and is a really good quality material that most definetly is going to last.

I can not recommend these dolls enough. They retail at £18.99 and there is such a variety of dolls to choose from.

  6. I'd choose Fossil Hunter Lottie. I remember looking for fossils as a child and occasionally finding shell imprint fossils in our yard. It would be fun to try this with my daughter. She seems to have an interest in math, and I want to encourage her to explore that and science.
