The Maplelea Girls Gifts for Canadian girls

Avonlea Traditions Inc. is a Canadian owned and operated company founded in 1988. Avonlea began by developing products based on Canada’s ever-popular storybook character, Anne of Green Gables™. In 2003, after a decade of research, Avonlea Traditions introduced the Maplelea Girls, a line of high quality, Canadian-themed, 18” vinyl play dolls, that are “an inspiration to and a reflection of, Canadian girls from coast to coast.” The Maplea Girls are specially designed for girls aged 6 to 12. 



Every little girl wants a doll that looks like them. When I was little I always looked for the redheaded doll and now my daughter looks for dolls that look like her. Of course she has others, but the ones she feels resemble her, are special. Kind of like having a little sister or mini twin. Add in the fact Maplelea Girls come with a personal story about being Canadian and this makes them extra special. 


The Maplelea School Set 



The Maplelea School Set has been thoughtfully designed to provide hours of interactive and educational fun for you and your dolls. Take turns playing ‘teacher’ and work your way through the all-Canadian curriculum using the magnetic activities and worksheets provided.  Create a welcoming environment for your students by crafting a daily ‘Welcome’ message for your school marquee and customizing your classroom decorations. Make sure to tidy your classroom at the end of the day by putting your worksheets, folders and activities away in the cabinets, recycling and waste receptacles provided. The cabinets fit neatly into the built-in storage slots, and you can stow your Maplelea School Set in the fabric carry bag so it’s ready to travel with you and your Maplelea Girls and Friends wherever you go!


The Maplelea School Set includes:

• Fold-out classroom with built-in storage slots and clock with moveable hands

 • 1 filing cabinet with 3 drawers containing 6 worksheet pocket folders, 6 file folders and teacher’s paper pad

• 1 teacher’s desk with 3 subject bins and recycling/waste receptacles

• 6 blank workbooks

• 1 fabric carry bag to store and transport the Maplelea School Set

The Maplelea Girls are from six different regions of Canada: the Rockies, rural prairies, urban Ontario, the Maritimes, Quebec and northern Canada. Each character has a distinctive personality, strong values, and empowering stories to tell. Although these characters celebrate a variety of lifestyles, activities and interests, they all share a special spirit and imagination, a sense of adventure and a satisfaction with being just who they are at this time of their lives.


Taryn comes ready for outdoor adventure in her cozy cotton striped turtleneck, her khaki skirt with buckle closure, funky striped tights and her oh-so-comfortable hiking boots. Her long brown hair is held back with a tiny leaf hair clip. 

Her 6-ring expandable 64-page story journal has 32 pages written and illustrated by Taryn and 32 pages with questions, prompts and blanks for you to write in! 

The doll and journal arrive in a beautiful, sturdy keepsake storage box that you can use to keep all Taryn’s treasures. 

This premium quality doll is 46cm (18 inches) tall with a soft, huggable body and poseable arms and legs. Her eyes open and close.

My little one is six and she has quite the collection of Maplelea Girls. Each has beautiful long silky hair and stylish outfits. They each come with a booklet full of their info. I love that there is a story for each girl. Taryn is from Banff Alberta and her likes and dislikes reflect where she is from. These dolls are fun to play with and educational as they teach your child about Canada. We also like that you can keep adding to your Maplelea girls wardrobe with more outfits, accessories and even play sets. The fun never ends.

The Maplelea girl dolls and sets will make great gifts this holiday season.
