My 7-year-old daughter, like many girls her age, is totally obsessed with American Girl Dolls. She becomes engrossed in their narratives from Caroline Abbott and her quest to find her father during the war of 1812 to Saige, the 2013 Girl of the Year who has a passion for painting. My daughter becomes inspired by these dolls, wanting to go on a boat ride like Caroline or to jump on a horse like Saige, their stories influence her own story and these characters become like friends, albeit 18-inch tall plastic friends. And now there is a new pal for her to meet, the 2014 Girl of the Year – Isabelle Palmer.
Isabelle made her exclusive debut on Good Morning America. The 10-year-old character is a dancer who is studying ballet at a performing arts school. GMA reports that, “Isabelle, who has a flair for designing ballet costumes, has trouble adjusting to a new school, and struggles with self-doubt in the dance studio until she finds a way to stand out and use her talent to help others.”
There will be books, cool accessories and outfits, games, and a movie (coming out this summer), all about Isabelle and her dancing, school life and challenges.
So basically, this is a warning to all your parents of American Girl Doll loving daughters. Suddenly your child will beg to go back to ballet classes, pink will be the new black, and Isabelle will be their new doll BFF.
Does your daughter love American Girl Dolls and will you be getting the 2014 Girl of the Year?
