Maplelea Girls (#Canadian) {REV!EW}

I have been checking out the Maplelea Girls brochure for well over a year now so when I was approached by them to review one of their dolls, I was over the moon with excitement!

I had a super special doll when I was my daughter’s age that had “real” hair. Her name was Jenny. She had long, straight dark brown hair and I loved dressing her up and playing with her hair. I really wanted my daughter to have a similar experience. There is something special about having that one doll you felt was real and that you had a connection with.

Canada’s SIX Maplelea Dolls will educate your child about Canada’s culture, heritage and geography. They each come with a 64-page journal illustrated with doodles, photos and writings done by the doll character to tell about her life and the part of Canada she calls home. The writing in the journal is very realistic and adds that extra dimension to the reality of the doll. It allows a child to get right into their doll’s head and will also help them form their imaginative play knowing a bit more about their doll. I really like how there are blank lined pages at the end of the journal for your child to document their fun that they experience with their new friend and how each new outfit (sold separately) comes with a page to insert into their journal.

The dolls’ names are: Jenna, Taryn, Brianne, Léonie (lay-oh-nee), Saila (sigh-lah) and Alexi. They are 46 cm (about 18″) tall and have a soft body with arms and legs that can be posed. Their eyes open and close, making them that much more real and their hair is as silky as real hair can be! Each Maplelea Girl retails for $99.99. The dolls are created with girls 6-12 years old in mind.


We received Brianne in the most beautiful box (that we will keep to store her in). I just can’t believe how beautiful these dolls are! My daughter has a natural instinct to be a Mommy, it often comes out when she is talking to much younger children. Having a special doll to play with allows her to explore that side of herself if she wants to or maybe over time, Brianne will become her special, little friend!

Brianne (along with all of the other dolls), has many coordinating outfits that you can order including “dress like your doll” outfits! What girl wouldn’t want to be a “matcher” with her doll?! How much fun is that?! Guess what my daughter will be getting this year for Christmas.

Can you believe that there is even a Maplelea Spa that you can send any broken dolls to. For $65, you ship out your doll and a brand new doll arrives looking and feeling great. She will be wearing a comfy spa gown and matching slippers, accompanied by new pages for her journal. Return shipping by regular service is included in the fee.

I truly feel that one of these dolls would make an excellent gift for a young girl that will create memories for a lifetime!
