If you will remember Tammy, LADL traveling doll’s trip to Canada back in January, we are celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday this summer. On July 1, all Canadians will celebrate with pride, as our country celebrates the year that our provinces came together to join the Confederation and become one nation from coast-to-coast-to-coast. Anyways, this milestone anniversary is being marked in so many wonderful ways—even 18-inch dolls have gotten into the spirit of Canada 150!
I spotted the following dolls in our Canadian Walmart just this past weekend. They are adorable in their Canada 150 jackets! They are being sold for the regular $34.99 price tag. I imagine they will only be available for a short time, as they aren’t even listed online.
Not surprising, Maplelea also has a Canada 150 outfit.
Naturally, as good Canadians do, we went to the dollar store to stock up on our Canada Day gear—and were delighted to find tiny hats, so we had to set up a pre-Canada Day photo shoot! Here Avery is with her newest dolls—Sandy and Dexter, which she purchased with her own birthday money, and Zoe—an American Girl doll that Avery’s grandmother found at a Value Village and gifted her. Don’t they look great all decked out in their red and white Strong and Free outfits?
The “Celebrate Canada” festivities start tomorrow with National Aboriginal Day and will continue until July 2, so I hope to find some more doll-related celebrations to send along! Until then—all the best.
