When my daughter turned 7 she requested an American Girl doll. I did some research and came across the Maplelea Girls website. These are 18 inch dolls equal in quality and price to the American girl but they are Canadian. You can choose a doll that comes with a personality from different regions in Canada or you can simply order a doll with different hair/skin/eyes of your choice. My daughter and I spent hours on the website and finally decided on Taryn, a doll from Banff Alberta. I was completely blown away with the high quality of the clothing. Everything is like miniature real person clothing. It is just adorable and has given my daughter hours upon hours of playtime. Many of my daughter's friends now own a Maplelea doll upon seeing ours.
