Toys, Dolls and Positive Play Models for Younger Girls
The Lottie doll is based on a 9 year old child, and has a message to retain childhood and let kids be kids – seeking to empower young minds and nurture individuality through play. With a real girl’s body and real girl interests, here we finally have a doll that gives your daughter the permission to be a smart, interesting, adventurous ‘superhero’.
Only Hearts Club dolls are the dolls you won’t mind your little girl play with. They have detailed faces with soft, poseable bodies and limbs and can be dressed in a range of age appropriate fashion clothing. With a wholesome message to follow your heart and make good choices, each of the six different dolls have different cultural backgrounds and different personality types and interests. A welcome relief from Barbie!
