Meet Lea (doll giveaway!)


American Girl doll GOTY 2016 Lea
It's time to meet Lea Clark, American Girl's 2016 Girl of the Year! Lea is a photographer and an animal lover who likes to travel and explore. In Lea's 2-book series, girls can read about Lea's adventures when she goes to visit her older brother Zac in the Amazon rainforest. I went to the American Girl Store in Palo Alto to get a closer look at Lea and take some photos to share with you! Keep reading to find out more about Lea and her collection -- and enter for the chance to win a Lea doll of your own!

I think Lea is one of the prettiest Girls of the Year. She has hazel eyes and long, wavy, light-brown hair. It could be the store lighting, but it looks to me like Lea's skin tone is slightly tanned, which would make sense given that she's in Brazil. I love the way her hair curls at the bottom!

Lea's dress is so cute, and I can totally see her wearing it to any tropical place.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that Lea comes with a compass necklace and a messenger bag ( not part of her Accessory set, they both just come with the basic doll!).

Lea's sandals are so adorable!

Let's take a look at some of Lea's outfits and accessories, starting with the grandest of them all, Lea's Rainforest House! This gigantic playset comes with a ton of accessories -- and for $395, it had better! Her house has a thatched roof, lantern, hammock, and so much more.

The loft bed has bamboo railings plus bedding in bright colors. Decorations include shelves, a flower vase, a framed poster, and post cards. Lea is so close to nature, there are even tiny animals -- a blue butterfly, a parrot, and a tiny green frog -- and flit in and out of her house.

I love, love, love this outdoor shower with mosaic tile backing! Also check out the soap-on-a-rope, seashell chimes and mosquito netting. Detail, detail, detail.

The table and chair look like they are made with rattan, bamboo, and wood. There are a ton of native foods as well as utensils, a plate, a rice bowl, and a fruit drink. Lea can also use the table to work on her tablet and keyboard.

A less extravagant, more practical playset is Lea's Fruit Stand, which is a relative "bargain" at $150. It includes lots and lots of pretend fruit, food, plates, utensils, a blender, baskets, counter tops, a working window, and more! (BTW check out Lea's Bahia outfit, $28 -- I would totally wear that printed top).

Here's a closer look at the fruit stand.

Like the Rainforest House, the outside of the Fruit Stand has great detail, so girls can play from all sides. The side in the photo has a toucan perch, toucan, menu holder, and outdoor table. Girls can put decorative stickers on the side walls.

Lea gets to explore the ocean in a clear-bottomed kayak with removable sail.  The Ocean Kayak set ($85) includes a life vest but Lea's 2 piece swimsuit is sold separately (it's part of her Mix and Match Swim Set). The sea turtle is also a separate item.

Here's the other half of Lea's Mix and Match Swim Set ($34). Everything else in the photo is part of her Beach Accessories set.
American Girl GOTY 2016 Lea (16)



Lea's collection comes with not one, not two, but three plush animals! Because she's in the rainforest, the animals are also rainforest animals -- a Three Toed Sloth ($20), a Margay Cat ($20), and a Sea Turtle($18). And because no GOTY collection is complete without a worthy cause, American Girl will donate $1 to the World Wildlife Fund for each animal purchased, up to $100,000. Way to go, American Girl!

Here's Lea with her new Brazilian friends. She's wearing her Rainforest Pajamas ($24).

I love Lea's jungle hut and sloth! My family and I are going to try to make her hut and some of her accessories. I just love her whole collection! My daughter and I cannot wait to read her fun stories about adventure and animals.

Sarah Brittingham on January 5, 2016 at 6:43 PM said...

My little lady will be 8 in November and loves art and animals. Her favorite subjects to draw are her pet chickens. We will do an art sale later this year to contribute money to the WWF. We also help wildlife by gardening organically. All the bugs, frogs and snakes that visit our yard thank us.

We dont live to far from the ocean so to help the WWF we always pick up our trash at the beach so it does not go into the ocean to harm the animals.

Sarah Hayes on January 11, 2016 at 10:51 AM said...

I can teach my daughter to clean up after herself when she's outside after a picnic or a hike. I can teach her how important it is to respect animals and their habitats. Have this doll would be a great way to introduce those ideas to her and teach her why it so important to take care of our earth and the animals
