It’s difficult to convey how beautiful this Maplelea Saila doll is, and the quality is amazing. Once again purchased by Petalina as a sample doll in order to try clothes on. Although an 18″ doll like many others, she has longer legs and a slightly bigger body with bigger feet, but her quality is better than any other soft bodied 18″ doll we have ever seen. She really is very beautiful.
Her vinyl is clean, her soft body is clean (with some little bobbles on her back) and her black wig is silky and smooth. She has closing brown eyes with lashes on the top eye lid. She has healthy pink cheeks and a slightly smiling mouth. There are some very slight shiny marks on one cheek, but you have to look for them and I think there is a tiny mark on her chin, but again you need your glasses on!
Maplelea Saila doll’s clothes are to die for and are so beautifully made. She is wearing a soft pink T shirt with lycra and a pair of dark denim jeans with a silver thread running through giving them a slight sparkle. Over this she wears a rich purple fleece vest with a zip and contrasting pink trim and underneath it all wears simple white knickers. Her footwear is complex to keep her feet warm in the snow, with white jersey socks, embroidered fleece lining (there are a couple of light marks on these) and a pair of traditional kamiik to finish. Everything is so beautifully made.
I think a collector would be very pleased with this doll as it gives an opportunity to buy a doll from Canada that is no longer available. Maplelea now sell dolls all in the same outfit with extra outfits available separately. Similarly, a child of age 8 and up would also love to have her as a friend.
