Birthday Girl Sophia & Junior Reporter Sammi Lottie Doll - Review & Competition



As a mummy and a blogger there are some brands which I can't help but love and really like to support. Lottie Dolls are certainly one of them. I've always adored dolls, ever since I was a little girl and one of my favourite past times has got to be playing with my Barbies but let me tell you, Barbie doesn't have a patch on our Lottie!

Lottie Dolls are like a breath of fresh air in the toy industry and it comes as no surprise as to why they are such a big hit not with just children but with us parents too. Lottie Dolls have a vision and that is to empower children to be themselves and to follow their dreams, they strive to encourage kids to embrace and accept not just their own individuality but everyone else's too. They want children to enjoy their childhood, to have the best memories and to take on fun and important adventures!
Unlike any other doll I've ever come across, Lottie and Finn have been created and based on real children. Lottie and Finn are relatable, age-appropriate in aspirations as well as appearance and all the dolls and accessories from their collections are inspired by real life children. What parent wouldn't be happy with their children playing with dolls like these?

A few weeks ago I was sent two dolls from the new collection and I couldn't wait for them to arrive and to see what they were like up close. The first doll I opened up was the new Birthday Girl Sophia doll and isn't she beautiful? She has long golden hair, big blue eyes and the cutest of outfits.


Description

It’s my birthday today - hip, hip, hooray! There is something so magical about birthdays. Friends and family, party games, delicious treats and super-scrummy cake! This year, straight after my party, I’m going to ask my big sister Lottie to help me to make cards to say “thank you” to everybody. I just can’t wait for my first guests to arrive, now. I’m so excited! Birthday Girl Sophia Doll retails at £18.99.
Hair: Blonde. Style: No fringe. Eyes: Blue.

Includes:

  • T-Shirt with cupcake print
  • Silver tutu
  • Grey/pink short leggings
  • Sparkly deep pink bag
  • Silver trainers
  • 3 mini cards (invitation, birthday, thank you)

Birthday Girl Sophia is a new favourite of mine as I love everything about her; from her party tutu and glitzy bag to her grey sneakers and cupcake t shirt. I think it's a lovely touch that you're able to remove her tutu and bag to create a "before birthday party" look. I think she's the perfect doll to gift to a special little someone on their very own birthday. I know when I was little I would have loved to receive her as a birthday present, it would have made my day even more magical.

Next up we have Birthday Girl Sophia's new best friend, Junior Reporter Sammi who stopped by her party to interview all the guests! Or so that's what Noah said was happening when he was playing with both of them! I loved watching him play make believe with the dolls, how he made them interact and the little scenario's he was creating for them.


Lottie Dolls also make boy dolls although there are not as many male dolls as there are female. Sammi is the second male doll in the Lottie collection but what a fabulous little boy he is! His dark skin, bushy hair and big brown doe eyes are so dreamy. I think he'd make a welcome addition to any Lottie Doll collection. How cool is that yellow body warmer and grey beanie hat, seriously?

Branksea School’s Sports Day is a Sports Day with a difference. We have athletics and gymnastics and team sports like football. But - because we’re so close to the beach – we have lots of water-based activities, too. There are swimming and surfing and canoeing events. There’s even a kite-flying event near the sea cliffs! I write about everything for the Branksea School News, it’s a hectic sort of day! Junior Reporter Sammi Doll costs £21.99. 
Hair: Dark Brown. Eyes: Dark Brown.

Includes:

  • Plain grey hat
  • Yellow gilet
  • T-shirt with headphones print
  • Jeans
  • Dark-red trainers
  • Denim-blue bag
  • Pen
  • Edition 1 of Branksea School News

I can't tell you how much I adore these two dolls, they are both so adorable in their own little ways and are made with the utmost quality and attention to detail. I know both children will have so much fun with them throughout the years and I know I will do too.
