Lottie Dolls at Silly Billy’s

Silly Billy’s is very Happy to be the
new go-to Stockist for Lottie Dolls

It has taken us a while to get Lottie Dolls in and they have been in our toy shop in Hebden Bridge for a good few weeks now. We feel that the reception customers have given to Lottie has exceeded our initial expectations and we hope that our Lottie Dolls range really sparks the interest of our local community.

Lottie Dolls – What The Creators Say

To date, many of our dolls, outfits, accessories and play-sets have come straight from the amazing and awe-inspiring imaginations of children. Maybe that’s what makes our range of dolls so relatable. Kids have helped to create a range of toys that they actually want to play with.

We recognise how precious childhood is. And in the face of growing pressure – from a variety of sources – how short it can be. We dream of a safe and uncomplicated place where kids can be kids, where the great outdoors is there for the exploring, where curiosity-led discoveries are a daily occurrence, where the imagination can run wild and where the only limit is bedtime.Our vision, when we first created Lottie, was to develop a range of dolls that would empower children to be them-selves, to be imaginative and adventurous and – most of all – to have fun. We believe that childhood should be an inclusive place where every child belongs regardless of gender, ethnicity or ability. And we’ve made it our mission to do our bit – no matter how small – to protect childhood.
