Lottie is an award-winning, innovative doll.

Based on the researched scientific proportions of a girl aged nine (with the exception of her head which is slightly larger to allow for hair play), she is sculpted at 7.5” in height to suit the average age of its user which is 6 years of age. Lottie does not wear make-up, jewelry or high heels; she can stand on her own two feet. The packaging is designed with minimal ties and blister and encourages reuse.

Lottie has saran nylon hair to reduce hair tangle, her richly colored fabrics are tactile, highly detailed and easy to dress with Velcro fastenings.

Since launching in late 2012 Lottie is now on sale in over 1500 stores across 14 countries, she has received international media coverage from The Huffington Post, The Guardian, Sydney Morning Herald, Toronto Star etc.

Content & Writing Internship / Made Woman Magazine

Made Woman Magazine provides relevant content for the modern woman, and is also a growing network of professional, driven, empowered women who want to connect with others just like them. More than just a magazine, Made Woman is a movement. We're inspiring, motivating, entertaining and communicating with other women who are constantly looking for ways to achieve their next goal. We’re a sounding board for like-minded professionals who come from varying walks of life, but have one thing in common: we’re MADE.

If you’re looking for 101 ways to please a man, a place to complain about how awful they are or the latest celeb fad diet... Made Woman Mag may not be the place for you. Sure, we love a playful jab and the occasional celeb gossip as much as the next girl, but Made Woman Magazine offers so much more.

In 2009, two USC grads -- Serena Watson and Lindsey Day -- were sick of seeing women placed in one of three boxes in the media: catty airheads, heartless witches or beautiful trophies. Where were all of the amazing, motivated young women they encountered at their jobs, at networking events...at the local café? Women who were starting out in their respective industries, blazing trails, juggling social lives and following their dreams in bold, fearless ways? Better yet, where do these amazing women go to get useful tools that are truly relevant to their lives? How do they find each other so that they can build real-life connections and support each others' growth?
