My daughter started to love American Girl watching the movies, but fell head over heels when she received her first American Girl doll last Christmas. “Faith”- her My American Girl doll I picked out for her- has been her constant companion. She plays with her all of the time. She even brings her to church and her friends bring their American Girl (or other brand) dolls and they swap clothes and play. It’s adorable.
When the American Girl catalog came in the mail a few weeks ago my daughter grabbed it, plopped down on the floor and proceeded to spend the next hour or more browsing and making her wish list. A few days later she brought it to me and told me her top choices. I was thrilled to hear her #1 choice, knowing that was the one that was already on it’s way to our house for this review! Meet the beautiful American Girl Doll Samantha:
A petal-pink dress with a layer of sheer dotted mesh on top, a lace hem and collar, short puff sleeves, and a burgundy velvet sash
Black Mary Jane shoes
A burgundy ribbon for her hair
Samantha also came with novel number one, called Manners and Mischief, of her classic series. My daughter loves to read and has borrowed and read a handful of the American Girl novels, so owning this one and getting to read it whenever she wants will be awesome to her!
She is going to adore this Samantha doll when she opens it, and I imagine we’ll be spending her Christmas money on choice #2 from the American Girl catalog. She loves skateboarding, so she was immediately in love with the new Skateboarding Set for Dolls!
It doesn’t just come with the cute outfit, but also with the shoes, skateboard, and stickers to decorate the skateboard. The wheels actually roll on the skateboard and it has elastic straps to secure the doll’s feet. How cool is that?!
American Girl dolls are a perfect gift for the little girl in your life! Not only will she adore the American Girl doll you choose for her, but if you purchase an American Girl Doll now through December 18th, American Girl will donate one 18-inch doll to Children’s Hospital Association (up to a maximum of 25,000 dolls total will be donated during the promotion period). It’s a win-win-win!
