Follett was a complete newcomer to the toy inudtsry when Arklu was formed in December 2010.
Having enjoyed success with the Princess Catherine engagement and Royal Wedding dolls, the idea for Lottie – a doll which is based on a child – was next up.
Just over two years later, Lottie has won 21 international awards, including five of the coveted Platinum Oppenheim Best Toy Awards, and is on sale in over 30 countries.
The ToyNews Women of the Year 2015 networking and awards event will take place on Thursday, July 16th at Home House, London. Winners for Rising Star, Innovator, Markeeter and Woman of the Year will be chosen from the top 100. Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org to vote.
