About Lea Clark™:
Lea, a talented photographer with a love for animals, discovers a wide world of possibilities when she embarks on a faraway adventure to Brazil. Available for only one year, Lea’s collection includes a beautiful 18-inch Lea™ doll featuring long wavy hair and warm hazel eyes, plus several tropical-inspired outfits, accessories, and toys that reflect her Brazilian travels—including Lea’s Rainforest House with over 30 pieces! To further expand Lea’s world for girls, an all-new, action-adventure film will debut on DVD from Universal Studios Home Entertainment in summer 2016.
The Lea Clark™ Book Collection:
Written by award-winning author Lisa Yee, the 2016 Girl of the Year books — Lea Dives In, Lea Leads the Way, and Lea and Camila—introduce girls to a curious ten-year-old girl with an adventurous spirit. On a family trip to Brazil to visit her older brother, Zac, who is studying rainforests, Lea is excited to capture everything she sees with her camera. Soon Lea makes some incredible discoveries, but she also faces unexpected challenges, including a fear of the ocean, tension with Zac, and finding a baby sloth that has been gravely injured. With the help of her family, her new Brazilian friend, Camila, and her late grandmother’s guiding inspiration, Lea finds the inner strength and confidence to live her new adventures to the fullest.

my daughter got her first AG doll in September and is obsessed! She loves taking her EVERYWHERE and all of the little food sets so they can have a picnic
My daughter has gotten the AG girl of the year for the past two years, she loves them! I shared on fb (although no clue how to tag American girl!!)
My girls American girl for different reasons! My youngest just loves the dolls and getting to dress and play with them, and my oldest loves the stories behind the dolls!
I have two girls who love AG for different reasons. My youngest (7) enjoys dressing her doll and taking her along for important activities (like our recent trip to NYC!). My oldest (who just turned 10) still likes AG but mainly for the books and “how to” guides. She’s learned about cooking, careers and her body through the AG series.
My daughter loves American girl! She just recently became interested and really enjoys playing with the dolls and all the animals! She would love to have Lea. She loves to dress dolls. She also likes to read the books or have them read to her. Posted on FB.
My daughter loves the stories that surround each doll!
My daughter is obsessed and it all she wants for Christmas. She loves to read the stories and know the history. Shared
Shared the giveaway. My girls love their American Girl Dolls and love to host tea parties, older girls participate too. Great back stories and awesome role models make them fun.
How wonderful! I am a subscriber to this blog and I shared this post to my Facebook tagging American Girl.
My daughter loves American Girl because she loves learning about all of the places and time periods that each doll is from. She would love to bring Lea home 😀
Shared on fb
My daughter loves the stories that go along with each doll. She likes to pretend how they lived in their time.

Thanks for the chance!
My girls have loved AG for years now. Now that my oldest is 8 she also reads the books. In my opinion they are collectibles and totally worth the money.

My daughter just went to a birthday party at the American Girl store and it was “the best day ever!” Winning may make this the “best Christmas ever!”

My daughter loves American Girl for the wonderfully detailed outfits, playsets, and accessories. She also loves the stories created for each doll for the purpose of getting young girls interested in history with hands on play. We have loved reading the books together. Her favorite stories are Kirsten’s and mine are Kaya’s. My daughter also loves to dress like her dolls and we have enjoyed visiting the AG store to play and have a special treat.

3. I have 2 girls, 8&5 years old and the oldest loves American girl and the youngest is just getting into it so this would make a wonderful gift for one of them.

My daughter just turned 22. She still loves American Girl. We had to move away when she was 12 and when we did we had limited space so all of her AG’s had to be put away in storage, which was very sad for my daughter. We just started bringing them back out now and have both fallen back in love with them all over again. You are never too old for AG!
My almost 8 year old has one that was her sisters who she loves. She so wants one of her own and wants the dolls to be friends 🙂
my daughter loves american girl dolls because of their stories, they are all so relate-able, no matter the decade they’re from!
My daughter would love this! Thanks for the opportunity!

3. She doesn’t have an American Girl, she gets the catalogs and dreams of owning one. She says she needs a best friend to tell all her secrets to. Getting Lea Clark would be perfect. She outdoors and travel and takes pictures of everything with her camera.
Whoops, forgot to leave my email address

My daughter loves American Girl, she got her first Bitty Baby at only 4 and has grown up to full sized dolls in the years since. She practically circles the entire wish catalog when they arrive.
I don’t have kids. But I love the AG dolls because they fill your life with joy. I’m alone and really have no friends so it’s nice to have a friend in AG.
My daughters love AG. They have Samantha and Josefina from when I was a little girl. My oldest goes through the magazine and circles and flips the page of everything she wants. This would be an awesome surprise for her.

My daughter likes American Girl Dolls because she gets to learn a little bit of the history behind each doll and she enjoys playing with her friends and their dolls.
Shared this! My youngest daughter Spencer not only has Lea at the top of her Christmas list, but ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL the Lea things, too. Both of my girls have an AG doll and will play for hours with them together . . PEACEFULLY:) They love the accessories and stories, and as a parent, I love the creativity inspired by the AG dolls, especially the fact there is zero technology involved — just good old fashioned imagination.
