We’ve taken extra special care to ensure that all Maplelea dolls and accessories will stand the test of time. The basic care tips below will help ensure that she is always looking her best.
Your Maplelea doll's head, arms, and legs can be surface washed with warm water, gentle soap or a baking soda paste, and a soft cloth. Please do not immerse the doll's head or body in water. Gently wipe, but do not scrub the painted parts of the doll such as the lips, cheeks, freckles and eyebrows.
For scuffs and scratches, a clean makeup sponge can work to buff out scratches or shiny areas from the doll’s skin, restoring the soft matte texture.
We do not recommend washing her hair unless absolutely necessary, as repeated washings can cause it to frizz. If necessary, follow the directions below. Be careful to not let her eyes get wet, as this may damage the doll.
Dolls should be stored in light coloured outfits. Do not store dolls for a long period of time against dark fabrics, leather, plastic or vinyl. Do not store dolls with print or ink contacting the dolls, such as with photocopied paper, or grocery bags with print.
Hand wash separately in cool water with gentle soap. Lay flat to dry. Shoes and non-fabric accessories: Surface wash only.
Washing the hair
Just as for real girls who are very active, you may find that putting your doll’s hair in a low ponytail or a braid will prevent the hair from getting tangled as the two of you move about your busy day. Or, you can use the Maplelea bun maker, from the Pirouettes and Pliés ballet set.
Note: Do not use a brush on dolls with very curly hair such as KMF11. Dolls with bigger curls such as KMF27 an KMF28 should only be brushed one curl at a time, and then wrapped around a finger to restore the curl.
