Jennifer has a review for us.
I purchased the Anne of Green Gables outfit. The dress is made of substantial very thick cotton fabric.
It is a bit long in the arms on Nellie O'Malley.
Corduroy jumper has the same plastic snaps as the dress.
Maplelea bloomers left are thinner and longer than AG bloomers. Maplelea bloomers snap and American Girl uses elastic. Different but both are great quality.
My Nellie can normally stand on her own, but the heal on the boots prevents this. Maplelea boots are much longer and also a bit narrower.
Materials are quite comparable, the one thing I would say American Girl does better though are the details. The buttons on the American Girl boots are actually a metal button. Maplelea boot buttons are embroidered. As you can see the Velcro on the Maplelea boot is on the side rather than the back.
I do love the carpet bag. I may use it to create a Mary Poppins outfit in the future.
It comes with a very nice journal page if you had the Maplelea doll. They sort of remind me of Girl Scout journey books.
