Find Canadian Maplelea Girl dolls on the Maplelea website. This line of dolls arose out of the Avonlea Traditions company in 2003. The dolls are supposed to reflect girls throughout Canada.
The dolls are part of a system that blends toys with contemporary role models and interactive literature. The system is intended to be a source of imaginative and educational entertainment for girls ages 6 to 12. The dolls represent six regions of Canada, including urban Ontario, the rural prairies, the Rockies and northern Canada. Each doll character has a distinctive personality.
The dolls are 18 inches in length and made from vinyl. They are crafted with details including long, bountiful hair, hands that can hold accessories, ball joints at hips and shoulders, flat feet to enable standing and a soft torso. Each doll comes with an outfit, storage box and keepsake journal. Additional clothes and accessories can be purchased separately.
In the fictional story, the Maplelea Girl dolls met one summer during an adventure and pledged to always be friends. The Maplelea website includes pages about each doll's personality. The pages also include clothing and accessories appropriate for each doll. Customers can purchase the clothing and accessories directly through the website.
