UPDATED! Congratulations Sherie N. for your winning entry!!

Matilda is a 16″ doll from A Girl for all Time who is the first in a series of dolls and books that bring English history to life through the eyes of young teens. Matilda’s story is about life in Tudor England where she is convinced nothing exciting will ever happen to her – until one day everything changes!

Matilda Prize Pack

Matilda the doll is different than many of the play dolls we are used to here in the United States. Not only are her clothes historically accurate, but her facial features reflect the time period she if from right down to her serious, solemn expressions. Her Keepsakes and Secrets book is amazing – with drawings, activities and a good mix of history and present day fun that really bridges history in a way that it makes it relevant to girls of today.

A look at Matilda’s very interesting Family Tree in her activity book. Other activities include recipes, Tudor hairstyles, designing your own gowns for Matilda, and creating jewelry with that Tudor vibe (or feel).



One (1) lucky winner will receive the A Girl for all Time Matilda doll, her Matilda’s Secret Book and Matilda’s Keepsakes & Secrets activity book as shown in the photo above.
