Unboxing the Lottie doll was easy. She is secured in several places with clear tags and rubber bands. A good pair of scissors makes easy work of removing her and her accessories from the box. Once unboxed you are left with once adorable Lottie doll with had accessory and removable clothing, several planet/space themed doll-sized cards, a telescope and stand, and an instruction booklet for learning more about space.
The Playtime Experience
The Stargazer Lottie Doll has won award for being a great role model for young children. She is appropriately shaped as a little girl and provide a more relatable and positive body image to relate to. The telescope is easy to put together and there are several pieces of clothing with the doll that are removable and can be used together to create a very cute look. This doll also encourages learning about astronomy by directing kids to do researched with the website from the European Space Agency.
Things I Liked
I love the positive body image that this doll encourages. So many dolls are the market create an unrealistic expectation for body shape and this doll is far more appropriate.
Things I Didn't Like
I wish there had been full size astronomy cards as well. Something that had information about the planets and things like that would have added a lot to this toy for me.
As with most dolls with small, removable accessories this Stargazer Lottie Doll is recommended for players 3 and older.
I really enjoyed this Stargazer Doll. I love the positive body image and all the accessories. The subtle encouragement to learn about Astronomy is amazing as well since it adds a whole new element to playing with dolls that is both fun and educational.
