Lottie Dolls is like our family in so many ways. We both dream of a safe and uncomplicated place where kids can be kids, where the great outdoors is there for the exploring, where curiosity-led discoveries are a daily occurrence, where the imagination can run wild and where the only limit is bedtime. And so, in designing their collection of toys, they try really hard not to be overly-prescriptive about the rules of play. Lottie loves their toys to be the spark behind many hours of make-believe – where it’s the children themselves who set the rules. In fact, eight of their products have been inspired by the ideas sent in by real children from around the world. I call that really cool!
Of all of the dolls, our favorite is the Forest Friend Lottie Doll. This little lovely Lottie is dressed in a delightful green and lilac fairy-inspired costume comprising a velvet-style bodice and petal tutu skirt. She completes the look with a cute bow hairband and sparkly gold ballet flats.
Her story: Reading her book at bedtime, Lottie is enchanted to learn about all the magical forest fairies that live deep in the woods and forests. Lottie imagines how exciting it might be to discover a secret fairy door on a tree, where fairytales come to life and anything can happen! Perhaps the forest fairies might sprinkle fairy dust all around her so that her wildest dreams come true?
Lottie Dolls have fully poseable arms and legs. They are also small in size and ready to go on any excursion your little one can dream up. From traveling by plane to imagination play around the house, she is right by her side. BFF!
Another absolutely adorable piece from the collection is the Muddy Puddles Lottie Doll. She comes complete with a cute yellow hooded raincoat with blue striped lining, rain boots, a long sleeved t-shirt, corduroy shorts and striped leggings. Perfect for the up coming little lady!
Her story: When it’s raining outside, Lottie is quick to pull on her raincoat and boots and go on a muddy adventure. Walking through Branksea’s Daffodil Fields, Lottie spots a family of ducks swimming in a murky mud puddle. She loves the sound of the squelch of her boots in the mud, and it is great fun to find the deepest, muddiest puddle and jump up and down in it. Lottie also likes puddle jumping with her friends and having a competition to see who can make the biggest splash.
Of course no doll collection is complete without extra doll clothes especially for night, night time. The Sweet Dreams Outfit Set is perfect for those daytime naps and long nightly rests. This set comes with all-in-one pyjamas, dressing gown robe and pink fleece slippers.
Now we are jumping for joy that the buildings are finally here and just in time for the holiday season! They are made with lots of super-tactile real wood and we couldn’t be more delighted with the results! Look how cute they are?!

There’s always lots to do down at the stables on Greendale Farm. Grooming the ponies the ponies is such a lovely job that it doesn’t really feel like work. And the ponies seem to enjoy it as much as we do. Mucking out the stalls can be really hard work but there’s usually a treat for us when we’ve finished: a fantastic walk along the beautiful beach with our ponies!
