It was almost a year ago that my oldest received her Maplelea Doll, Saila. She fell in love with her from the start and loves brushing her hair and sleeping with her and taking her on trips with her. She loves Saila so much that for her birthday all she wanted was things for her. So for her birthday she got a Maplelea bed and bedding, and a new dress. Now we have the chance to review another dress from Maplelea, the Sweet Saxifrage dress.
The Sweet Saxifrage dress comes in a nice box that can easily be used for a present. In the box is a purple dress, silver shoes, ballet flat and a matching purse. It also comes with a hanger and journal pages for Saila’s journal that you get when you purchase your doll. The journal pages come in English, French and Inuktitut (her native language).
Lee loves this dress on Saila. It’s her favorite color and to quote her, “It’s SO beautiful, I want a dress like that.” She even took Saila trick or treating with her because they both “looked like princesses”. Lee loves having all these different clothes for her Maplelea doll and loves playing dress up. I love reading the journal pages that come with each outfit and sharing with her more about Saila’s heritage.
Do I recommend Maplelea and their dolls? YES! Like I said earlier, we love it enough that we’ve bought many accessories for Lee’s doll and Lee is asking for more for her birthday and Christmas this coming year. I love that these are dolls for Canadian girls and that they teach a bit about their heritage. Lee loves how beautiful and fun it is to play with her doll.
“Maplelea Girls are not found in retail shops. Why? The company keeps its costs down by selling directly to the consumer. Plus many Canadian girls do not live near retail outlets that sell high quality specialty toys. By offering a flat $9 shipping fee for any size order traveling anywhere in Canada, all girls have equal access to the product line. Orders can be placed online at www.maplelea.com or by phone at 1-800-668-4339 24 hours/7 days a week.”
Lee wanted me to show you Saila with her other outfits she has and her bed. The first photo is of Saila with her original clothing on, with her journal and hair brush. The bed and bedding are sold separately. The second photo is of Saila with her Katajjaq Giggles dress, that Lee got for her birthday.
