One my favorite things about having girls is seeing them enjoy the toys and activities that I loved as a child. American Girl is one of my all-time favorite brands. I loved collecting the American Girl dolls and accessories, making my dolls custom clothing and choosing new outfit sets from the AG catalog. I gave my oldest daughter my Truly Me American Girl doll as soon as she was old enough to take care of her and we’ve grown our collection with several new BeForever Dolls and the WellieWishers Camille and Ashlyn. My girls also enjoy dressing up American Girl’s latest BeForever doll Nanea Mitchell, a Hawaiian girl from 1941.

My daughter enjoys playing with newer releases such as Maryellen Larkin and Melody Ellison. Each of these American Girls have their own unique stories, families and communities. If you prefer the modern dolls, you can choose an American Girl TrulyMe doll designed to look like your child. The American Girl doll collection offers something for everyone!
