I love the Tudor period she comes from, especially for the culture and the clothing! And you've been tempting us a lot by telling us about the exceptional qualities of the AGFAT dolls!

  5. I would love to enter the Matilda giveaway. Though I have only been recently introduced to A Girl for All Time, their dolls and accessories appear to be especially well-developed, detailed, and historically accurate - perhaps even more so than America Girl with whom I am much more familiar. Thank you for this opportunity so that I may have a chance to be better acquainted with their products.

  7. I would love to enter the Matilda giveaway. I have collected dolls for much of my young adult life and they bring such fulfillment in my life. I share memories with each doll I own and treasure them all. My collection ranges from American Girl, Barbie, Disney Princesses and Villains, Ever After High, and Monster High. I just recently learned about A Girl for All Time by coming to your blog everyday. I love your blog for everything that it offers, from updates to rumors to new product information. When I found out about A Girl for All Time, I was awestruck that I had to find out more about these beautiful dolls. I loved finding out the creation and design process, the attention to detail, and the historical aspect of these dolls. Matilda has always been my favorite because of your updates! I can't wait to read her story soon and would love to win her. Good luck to the other contestants. Thank you Rhonda and A Girl for All Time for this wonderful opportunity. - Blake

She is a beautiful doll and it would be lovely if she was my first Girl for All time doll! I love her pretty face and her beautiful blue/gray eyes! Her outfits are what amaze me the most. They look so gorgeous! I'm sure they are high quality too! Thank you for this giveaway Rhonda!

  23. I would like to enter. I have a parents permission. I would love a Matilda doll because history (of any time period) is facinating to me, and I haven't had a chance to explore the Tudor period of history. I would love to be able to explore that with a new doll. I think A Girl For All Time is amazing-- they have nice quality and historically accurate clothing and accessories. Thank you for hosting this wonderful giveaway! :)

  39. I am entering to win Matilda, and I have my parents' permission. I read LADL daily and when I first saw Matilda introduced, I was captivated by both her unique beauty and the accuracy of her dress to the time period. I really enjoy reading historical series, and I enjoy even more the dolls that bring these eras to life!

  40. I would love to enter this giveaway for Matilda to gift to my daughter or her best friend. I know they would both greatly love and enjoy her as well as love sewing for her.

  41. Thank you for the giveaway--how exciting! I realized recently that I have essentially been a doll collector my whole life without even realizing it. Matilda represents an era that I have always found fascinating and that, as it turns out, I managed to do many a school project about--that was long ago so it would be nice to get reintroduced to the era. In additions, the clothing alone is fascinating.

  42. I am entering because I love historical dolls. Matilda comes from a very interesting period and I would love to sew for her.

  43. What a great giveaway! I've been in love with Matilda ever since I first noticed the A Girl for All Time doll line. I think the books are so rich with history, and the fashions of the dolls really capture the feel of the era they represent. I've always been in love with the Elizabethan age, and think Matilda just embodies the whole spirit of the time period. I know I probably won't ever see a Matilda in a store, and I would love to have a British doll in my collection. I hope I win this giveaway, so that I can give Matilda a good home. Thank you for hosting the giveaway!

  46. Matilda is a brave caring girl who while not ambitious always wants to do the best she can for her family. She begins to realize that her cousin is in trouble but it is too late. And she is wise enough to skirt danger and escape the court with her life. It's a thrilling story. I like this entire brand because they have faith that our girls can handle uncomfortable truths.

  47. I'd like to enter and I have permission. I like Matilda because it's so cool how you can pose her and she can hold different items. She is so photogenic and if I won I'd take TONS of pics of her outside. She's become a fast fav in the doll family.

  48. Yay! I can't believe it! A chance to add a girl from Europe to our doll family! Molly come here! On the awesome blog Livingadollslife, Rhonda, the generous blogger, is giving away a Matilda doll! She'd be such a cool sister to have! She's from the Medieval time of the French Revolt. I really hope we win! She'd be so fun to hang out with! She's cute and fashionable and could teach us a lot about history.

  52. Please enter me in the giveaway! I am under 18, and have my parent's permission. :)

    I would love to win Matilda, because I don't currently own any A Girl for All Time dolls, and the shipping cost kills me! She's a gorgeous doll, and her clothes are super historically accurate, and look well-made. The concept of the line having each of the dolls being from a different generation in the same family is a wonderful idea, and one of the best aspects of the stories. She would also make a great cousin for Saige! (A cousin twice removed for Elizabeth, Mia, and my toddler Rapunzel, Kiara.) Overall, Matilda would make a lovely addition to my growing dolly family!

    A reason I love Matilda because of the time period she's from. I am simply fascinated about the tudor era and have read many books about it. I also love that the Girl for All Time books are really detailed and accurate for being fiction. You can learn a lot from them and they're entertaining for all ages!

  61. I wish to enter the contest to win Matilda. She is beautiful, the detail on her clothing is amazing. Every time I see her, I think about the skill and work that went into clothing at that time.

  68. Matilda and her wardrobe are gorgeous! Please enter me in the giveaway. The detailed dressmaker elements to her clothes are impressive. Modern clothes just don't have that kind of sophistication and detail. It's a pleasant change.
    Your photos and coverage about Matilda made me want to add her to our doll family. My daughter would love her and I'm sure Matilda would be well-shared between the two of us.

  69. I am definitely entering! Not only is Matilda a gorgeous doll, but I also love that her story takes place in Tudor England-one of my favorite time periods to read about.

    I would loooooooove to adopt Matilda into my doll family! She is so very pretty, and is (I think) my favorite A Girl for all Time doll. She has such a sweet, caring look in her eyes and a darling expression on her face.
    I especially love Matilda because she reminds me a lot of American Girl MarieGrace. I would looooooove for my Gracie to have a little sister! :)

  73. I would like to be entered in the contest for Matilda! I adore Matilda and her collection because the Tudor period is from one of my favorite eras in history. In fact, I love the Tudors so much that when (hopefully not if) I have a daughter she will be named Elizabeth in honor of Queen Elizabeth I, and If I am lucky enough to have a second daughter she will be named Abigail Anne - Abigail for Abigail Adams (Colonial and Revolutionary America is my other favorite period in history) and Anne for Queen Anne Boleyn!

  74. I'm commenting again because I don't think my other comment went through. I would like to enter, I have my parents permission; my favorite things about Matilda are that she's pose able and the historical accuracy of her clothes.

  91. I am so happy to enter your contest! I heard about your site from Doll Diaries. I love Matilda for her facial expression and her beauty. She truly looks like she is a kind soul with a love of those around her and a curiosity about the world that can't be matched. I love a Girl For All Time, but with the exchange rate between Europe and the USA, I simply can't afford Matilda. Here is hope that I win!
