Lottie has found the perfect spot for stargazing. Wrapped up warm in her jacket, hat, scarf and boots, she feels as though she can see all of space through the lens of her telescope. She is excited to explore the beautiful night sky and learn about the star constellations and planets, if she’s really lucky she’ll get to see the International Space Station where she became the first doll in space!
Stargazer Lottie doll was inspired by a suggestion by a 6 year old girl called Abigail and created in collaboration with the European Space Agency. In December 2015 Stargazer Lottie travelled to the International Space Station with British astronaut Tim Peake to inspire children to find out more about astronomy. She returned home August 2016.
