You probably read about Barbie’s disastrous attempt to move away from her tiny waisted, stiletto-shod, bottle blonde stereotype into a more intelligent, dynamic realistic modern woman, which involved her becoming a computer engineer, but only with the help of her male colleagues. Epic fail. Thankfully, Lottie is there to redress the balance of the doll market with her multiple interests and hobbies and childlike body shape. The latest edition to the ever-expanding range is Stargazer Lottie, £19.99, a special edition collaboration with the European Space Agency. She comes practically dressed in warm clothes, accessorised with a telescope on a tripod, solar system cards and aspirational info sheet on women in astronomy. Perfect for mini space fans and a great way to encourage an interest in science.
