Maplelea Fan Photography Gallery

April 16, 2020 3 min read 4 Comments

Maplelea fans, young and old, love to take pictures of their dolls in action, amid our beautiful Canadian scenery.  To submit your photos or short videos for consideration, see the instructions at the end of this Photo Gallery.

In the Lower Mainland of BC, the daffodils had begun to sprout when they got their first snowfall of the season this past weekend.  Charlsea enjoyed the day with her animals, training her puppy Kootenay while Kam and Loops in their warm wooly natural sheep coats enjoyed the snowy day hanging out.  The Empress was (as usual) up to her shenanigans hopping up onto the stumps.  But when everyone went over to check out the backyard tree named Herman, and hear his tale of woe about the squirrel who chewed off his nose, moustache and mouth, the empress climbed way up high onto Herman’s limbs and Charlsea had a lot of work to get her down.  Thank you to Maplelea fan Shannon G. for this photo story!

Shannon G. made a party room for her dolls in honour of Léonie's birthday! Happy Birthday Léonie!


Shannon G. and her husband looked out to find a beautiful blue sky day with sparkling snow and just knew they had to take Charlsea out to enjoy it.  They had a wonderful day atop Cypress Mountain in Beautiful British Columbia while many people stopped to admire her very Canadian doll with her very Canadian outfit. 


Hannah F. captured a portrait of Saila in her traditional Amauti and Pang Hat as a light snow gently fell in Sudbury, ON.

A curious fox photo bombed Saila and Taryn’s photography session.  He looked and he sniffed, but he didn’t touch. Submitted by Kimberly K. of Redditt, Ontario.
