When I was young, I was not interested in our Canadian history classes. I found the lessons quite boring. The teacher was just reading texts and asking us to write notes. Back then, we did not have all these fun educational toys that help kids learn while they play. To help us understand our roots and culture , my mom used to tell us fun stories about our Canadian history. What great memories. As a mom, I want to pass this Canadian pride to my kids. I take the time to teach them about our culture. Thanks to the Maplelea Girls dolls, teaching kids about Canadian culture, geography is made easy and fun.

My Review of Maplelea Doll:
My daughter and I chose Léonie, representing Quebec, our province. It comes into a beautiful storage box that my daughter uses to tuck her! This box is very well designed and resists to child manipulation.
When my daughter opened the box, it was love at first sight. She was impatient to hold her. The doll has beautiful hazel eyes and honey brown hair. She wears a stylish outfit: a white skirt with red dots and a red coordinated top. My daughter loved her red boots. I find them classy.
It comes with a 64 pages keepsakes. It has extra journal pages that come with each outfit, all of which are bilingual and includes questions, blanks and prompts so you can tell your story too. We live in a bilingual province. My kids speak both French and English. Most of the educational toys we have are only in one language. I like that this toy features both languages.
My daughter is in total love with Léonie. She likes brushing her hair. She does it very carefully so not to damage it. The keepsakes provides us with care instruction. She likes reading with her and even sleeping next to her. When she finishes, she tucks her in her box. She calls her : sister Léonie! We will be going on short road trips, we will make sure to bring it this lovely educational toy. My daughter likes the facts that it is not a baby doll. She feels a grown up when playing with Léonie.
Each doll retails for $99.It comes with a nice storage box and a keepsake. It is well designed. It is a high quality educational toy.Your daughter will have hours of pleasure. I am saving money to buy the series! It will be a great collection for my daughter! Don’t wait. BUY IT.
