Butterfly Protector Lottie Doll
Lottie and her friends love to volunteer their time in helping Margaret, the gardener at the English Country Garden. Margaret is always full of interesting facts, such as how plants need water and light to grow. It was from Margaret that Lottie learnt about the lifecycle of the butterfly, how it changes from egg to caterpillar to chrysalis into a beautiful butterfly which then plays a very important part in the pollination of Margaret’s flowers.
Lottie is dressed in her polka dotted green and white caterpillar boots and orange striped socks. Her pink and purple jacket tops off the outfit of orange corduroy shorts, a pink t-shirt with a removable butterfly patch and a cap with butterfly motif. Lottie also has a butterfly net, 4 butterflies and a pair of binoculars as well as a series of butterfly life cycle collector cards.
Butterfly Protector Lottie introduces science in a fun and engaging way as the doll box contains collector cards detailing the stages of the butterfly life cycle; a basic science unit taught at Key Stage 1 primary school science in the UK, as well as Common Core Standards in the USA.
Lottie is a wholesome doll alternative for children aged 3-9. She has a ‘childlike’ body – she doesn’t wear makeup, jewellery or high heels and she can stand on her own two feet (always a useful life skill for all girls, big and small). She’s all about letting girls be girls, doing all the activities a child would do, not growing up too quickly, and presenting a healthy view on body image.
