Shauna Altes is blazing a trail. "As a mom, I was unhappy with the doll options available in the store aisles today. I really wanted to give our girls dolls that celebrated childhood, taught life lessons and encouraged the simplicity of fun and experience."
And she's not alone. Moms and grandmothers are lining up to get a piece of the action, raising more than 60% of their goal on kickstarter in the first 4 days.
"We are still very small, not very many moms know about us and to have this kind of response in such a short amount of time really tells me that moms everywhere feel the same way I do." says Altes. "It's actually interesting, we have a large demographic of grandmothers who are captured with the nostalgia of the dolls and are in turn buying them to keep at "grandmas house" for their littles when they come to play."
So what exactly are Maple Box Dolls? They are a collection of ethnically diverse dolls that arrive in your mail once a month with a storybook, a craft to complete, a recipe to make, and a charm to collect. The first box arrives with a charm bracelet.
"This is the doll your Mom wished she could've given you" says Grace Everitt, a family friend. "They are really sweet looking and the fact that they arrive with a curated list of turn key activities really turns it into an automatic playdate with your daughter."
Monthly cost of box is $39.95 and is geared towards little girls aged 4 - 9 years old.
Shauna Altes, a successful entrepreneur, founded Maple Box Dolls in 2015 when she noticed that there was a lack of sweet fun dolly options for young girls to be found within a realistic price point. She saw how parents were struggling to find the time to curate fun experiences with their kids and decided to marry the time proven doll industry with the convenient modern subscription based business model.
Maple Box Dolls is currently active on Kickstarter with a very excited following of moms and little girls.
The company is releasing each new character doll in the line individually on Kickstarter for a total of 12 doll sets that will continue to build on the Maple Box Dolls story
