PIONEERING Irish doll company Lottie is giving readers of The Irish Post a chance to win one of its brand new Pirate Queen Lottie toys just in time for Christmas.
The doll is inspired by the original ‘Pirate Queen’, Grace O’Malley (Gráinne Ní Mháille), a real-life pirate who lived in 16th century Ireland and met with Queen Elizabeth I.
O’Malley’s exploits were uncovered in 2003 by historian Anne Chambers. Until then, she had largely been airbrushed from history on account of her not fitting the conventional norms of womanhood.
Now she is the latest figure to be taken on by Lottie, a Donegal-based company that prides itself on creating dolls that reinforce a positive body image among young girls.
The doll comes with an accessory set including replica silver coins and a treasure map, as well as a series of collector cards highlighting key events in O’Malley’s life.
