    Default Anyone want to sell a Maplelea doll?

    Just figured I'd check. Sigh. DD2 wants one desperately.

    Is she completely stuck on that brand or just want a nice 18“ doll? TRU is selling 18“ dolls now called Journey Girls, they will fit the Maplelea clothing too and looked pretty nice when I saw them.

    Hmm I don't think the brand is all that important, but I will show her the ones from TRU and see how she reacts. Thanks for the tip.

    There are also 18“ dolls in the Sears catalogue called Newberry Girls or something like that. My girls saw them and now they each want one. The huge bonus is they are $29.99 and you can buy extra outfits too. The cost was a big deal for me because I just don't see them playing with them as much as they think they will and I don't want to be spending $100 on one. I hope they prove me wrong though even if I do spend the $30 instead!

    I was looking at the American Girl dolls but they were way too expensive for my 18M old ($100 a pop) I did a little research & found dolls called “our generation“ dolls & they look almost the same & wear the same size clothes. I believe they are from the states but check kijiji because i saw a couple there.

    I have gotten both the Our Generation dolls as well the American Girl dolls. The big difference is the wig that they use. The hair on the Our Generation doll got matted easily. The American Girl dolls hold their value and you can sell them later for close to the price you paid as along as they are in great condition. You can even sell them in not so great condition and still get back a decent chunk of change.

    I would recommend getting a doll wig brush that you would only use to brush the dolls hair. If your child brushes their hair with the brush the oils from our hair will ruin the dolls hair. You can buy a wig brush at Sally in St. Thomas.

    Mine each have a journey girl. They like them!

    I'd recommend an American Girl too. Personally, I don't care for the look of the Maplelea dolls and the quality of the OG and the JG and other similar 18 inch dolls is nowhere near AG quality. If your AG gets damaged or given an unwanted makeover (with markers or scissors for example ) you can send her to the AG hospital and she'll come back looking like new!

    The AG accessories are also really, really nice. We have some OG accessories and they are fine but the AG ones are really wonderful. Pricey yes, but worth it IMO!

    Check Kijiji and eBay for used or even new AG's.

    ETA: Check GF's too if you are still on there. I bought a like new Kit (AG) doll from a GF.
