Lottie the Fossil Hunter Encouraging Girls into Science

Everything Dinosaur is delighted to support TrowelBlazers a team of dedicated science professionals and their supporters who are keen to celebrate the role of women in archaeology, palaeontology and geology.  We at Everything Dinosaur have been lucky enough to met and work with some amazing female scientists and it is great to see a child’s doll on the market that encourages girls to explore the wonderful world of rocks and fossils.  Meet “Lottie the fossil hunter”, a modern-day Mary Anning.

Lottie stands 18cm high and she is obviously equipped for some series fossil hunting with her sturdy rucksack, trowel, magnifying glass and geology hammer.  This poseable doll comes with some Ammonite fossils to find and we are sure that Lottie is going to have some amazing fossil collecting adventures.

Everything Dinosaur team members first came across Lottie several months ago, we have met some of the people behind her production and it is great to see a role model such as this for girls.

When we were puzzling over the name for this new doll, it was pointed out to us, very aptly by an eleven year old girl, that the name “Lottie” can be found in the word:

 PALAEONTOLOGIST.

Lottie the fossil hunter doll is recommended by Everything Dinosaur for its creative, imaginative play value and for the way it helps to challenge outmoded stereotypes when it comes to careers.
