This holiday season, a must-have in our house, is a new American Girl doll. We have frequented the American Girl store in South Park and let’s face it, I wish we were young again to embrace how amazing these dolls and the entire American Girl experience is.
*****THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED. OUR WINNER IS SARAH BROWNING****** Sarah, email us here to claim your prize!
We are excited to announce that one Smarty reader will win Grace™, the 2015 American Girl doll of the year. She is a baker who thinks like a business owner that will inspire your little ones to think big!
If you already own Grace then you know what a great baker she is. She could use some new baking accessories and this year, American Girl has partnered with Williams-Sonoma to offer amazing bake ware accessories. Now your little ones can bake just like Mommy!
American Girl has really expanded this year’s holiday offering. They have new dolls, including Maryellen Larkin, a sweet girl from the 1950s, who comes with a striped dress, black Mary Janes and her own book.
If you cannot find a doll that fits your kids’ needs, you can now customize dolls for every age. Both Bitty Baby and Truly Me dolls offer featured holiday-inspired sets and much, much more to make your doll truly unique to your kids.
One must-have item I’m getting my daughter is the matching pajama set. She’s going to have the same pajamas as her American Doll. I’m eyeing the Playful Polar Bear pajamas for her to unwrap Christmas morning.
If you’re looking for smaller items for the stocking, check out accessories, DVDs, books and outfits. There are so many options to keep your doll fresh, allowing your kids to continue playing with them! I love the versatility and options!
Beyond all of the super-cute dolls for our little ones, the season is more sweet with the charitable efforts by the American Doll company. To help get the holiday season started, they created the “Get a Friend, Give a Friend” campaign, which gave a doll to kids in hospitals when one was purchased November 6-30. Additionally, “bake a difference” supports No Kid Hungry, a campaign of national anti-hunger organization Share Our Strength. From November 1 – December 31, American Girl will match each dollar donated of girls’ holiday bake sale proceeds (up to $50,000). Lastly, American Girl will donate dolls and books worth half a million dollars to TODAY’s 22nd annual Holiday Toy Drive. All of these efforts will make this holiday season more enjoyable for little ones around the country.
