The New Charlsea Maplelea Girl Doll

One morning my oldest daughter Isabelle walked into my office sharing a story about or other, when she stopped mid-sententence and let out an ear piercing scream. My head whipped around to see a huge grin on her face. What the …

Then I looked over to where she was pointing and everything fell into place.

How could she not spot the signature Maplelea Girls blue box waiting so patiently in my workspace. This box is one which excites her like no other, and todays reaction is a prime example. Adding to her excitement was the size – which could only mean one thing. A new doll friend.

Did I mention that this day was also Isabelle’s 11th birthday? 

The timing for this arrival couldn’t have been more perfect, and the contents truly made my girls day.

Maplelea Girls provides “Canadian Dolls for Canadian Girls”, quality 18-inch dolls from different regions of Canada. The newest doll in the Maplelea Girls family which was waiting in the blue box for my daughter to open, is Charlsea – an 11-year old from Salt Spring Island, BC.

For Isabelle, Maplelea Girls are more than just dolls – they are her friends. She was thrilled to have a sister for Taryn {her Maplelea Girl from Banff}, and immediately dove into the included booklet and journal which told her life story and shared details about Charlsea.

Since we will be going to BC in the early Spring, she was exited to know all about Charlsea and about where she’s from.

As Isabelle was reading, her sisters met Charlsea and this was a good time for me to admire her details. She is a very beautiful doll, and came with an outfit that is so her. Those adorable boots, just like a pair Isabelle used to have, actually!

Along with Charlsea, Isabelle also got additional clothing and accessories for her, including the most adorable a raincoat, boots, and backpack. They have all since been whisked away to Charlsea’s new room, a dedicated spot in Isabelle’s bedroom – next to Taryn and her area.

I hear Taryn and Charlsea share clothing, and swap stories of Banff and Salt Spring Island, BC. I hear that both Tarn and Charlsea are coming with us on our next BC trip – and Charlsea might be our guide. There might even be talk about going Kayaking or something, I’ll let the girls plan that one.

Charlsea is energetic, outdoorsy and colourful – a true depiction of her area. I couldn’t help but be amazed at how each Maplelea Girl is such a valid depiction of the different parts of Canada.
