Meet American Girl Gabriela McBride

We are excited to introduce Gabriela McBride, the 2017 American Girl of the Year. We had the opportunity to check out this new American Girl doll’s gorgeous details and fun story that celebrates overcoming obstacles with creativity, something that many little girls can relate to. Don’t miss our unboxing video! I love the American Girl brand because of their dedication to introducing little girls to history and life principles in a fun way for little girls. Some of my favorite dolls include the timeless classics Kirsten and Felicity who were introduced to my generation. 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!
