American Girl Dolls

The American Girl dolls are a collection based loosely on a historical basis. Dressed in period costumes, the body of the doll is the prototype of the Betsy McCall doll of the 1950s. These dolls are designed to be a play doll, not especially a collector doll although they are collector's items.

The fact of the matter is there are 4 full sized American Girl Doll Horses and 2 smaller sized filly horses. The horses cost $75. The fillies cost $44. Yet remember, it costs more for taxes, shipping/handling, and sometimes they may add express charges of 20 for the size of the shipment and can be on back order until certain date.

1. Palomino Horse (Light cream/white)

2. All American Girl Horse (Brown)

3. Kayla Horse (Black with white/grey spots) almost Apaloosa type

4. Black Stallion (Black) you'll find in catalogue, not on the internet or website.

The above are the full sized $75 horses.

All American Girl Dolls with Piercings are awesome for girls.

Less expensive Our Generation Horses run around $34.79 at Target and Have White Thouroughbred Horse, Brown Quarter Horse, Black American Saddle Horse, Black Lusitano Equestrian Horse, and Andalusian Horse.

Sometimes you pay for the quality. But I've heard both are great quality.

How do you become a American Girl of the Year?

You can't
Well, the have staff members who write the stories for ag and the put it upon a board and pick the best.
You can't. It is chosen at random.
you can't; the company just makes a person up.
You cannot!!

The AG writers make up a story, that fits the time period. I don' think they base it on real people with the names they pick. They create the name and story...
well the American girl Lanies Back yard contest has past already but if you are talking about the contest of how they determine the girl of the year well they just choose some one which they make up and then they make a story with morals for it

You can't, the American girl doll of the year is not real, she is a story character.

But you can enter the make a poster contest. There is a contest this year where you make a poster that has to do with stopping bullying and creating a more peaceful world.
Unfortunately that cannot be done.
You can't.
Ummm you can't, the Girl of the Year characters are fictional.

What happens if an American Girl doll gets wet?

First of all do not get your American Girl dolls wet.And if the eyes get wet they can rust the color of her eye can go away and become silver, Also they will be closed forever or opened forever.Then your doll will maybe get sent to the doll hospital for new eyes.or bye a new doll.So yes that what will happen or you can replace the eyes your self. witch would be very cheaper. And remember Kids don't get your American Girl Dolls Wet.
American girls are not waterproof
It's best not to put an American Girl doll in water, as the dolls aren't made of waterproof material.
they turn blue
Yes, they can, but not too wet. When you are styling their hair, it is better to lightly mist it with water. You can even wash it, if you need to (but only sometimes and with mild [baby] shampoo).

Feel free to improve this answer! :) okay! ~jkoala12


Don't get the "scalp" wet, or the cloth wet. They both could mildew and mold. Also a stench could come up, lol.

Good luck.
I say no but u can put her in if u want but will need to restaff her the if her eyes get stuck or hair fall of cuz of glue do not be surprise
I wouldn't suggest it, as the American Girl dolls' bodies are stuffed and will absorb the water, which could lead to mildew if improperly dried.

Definitely not. It will ruin your dolls, so don't try it.
Definitely not!
No. American girl dolls should not get wet. If their eyes do, they will dry and stay open or closed forever, or sometimes the sticker that makes their eyes colored can come off, making the eye look silver. If the body gets wet, it can get moldy o the inside if not dried properly. It is okay to mist their hair, and I have washed my girl's hair and put conditioner on once when it got dry, but I made it certain that her body would not get wet.

DO NOT get the wig cap wet. It could mold, mildew, and worse. When you wash the doll's hair, stay away from the "scalp". You should only wash the hair if you can't get it out any other way.

Good luck!
no the water will ruin the torso of the doll.
No. AG themselves suggests not to. The dolls body could get wet, which means they could mold. Also their eyes, if water is applied their eyes could rust and they will no longer open or close.
The eyes will eventually rust and you will have to send the doll into the Doll Hospital to get her eyes replaced.

When were American Girl dolls first sold?

Per the AG Website:

The American Girl business was founded as Pleasant Company in 1986 by Pleasant T. Rowland and was acquired by Mattel, Inc. in 1998
In 1986 by Pleasant T. Rowland, her idea was to create dolls that girls could use and relate to. Pleasant wanted dolls that would last a long time unlike some paper dolls. American girls were popular because they were larger than a Barbie doll.
In 1983, educator, writer, and entrepreneur Pleasant T. Rowland was looking for dolls to give her nieces for Christmas. She found baby dolls (which emphasize mothering) and teenage or adult dolls (which emphasize future aspirations of an older age), but no dolls that realistically represented girls in an eight-to-twelve age range. This experience was coupled with a visit to Colonial Williamsburg, a place which Rowland felt personified the accessibility of living history and which inspired her to create a line of historical character dolls and books.
Pleasant Company (American Girl) was founded in 1986 by Pleasant T. Rowland. It began with only 3 dolls: Kirsten Larson, Samantha Parkington, and Molly McIntire. For more information about American Girl's history, go to
I think it the first doll was designed in 1986 (they were even more popular than barbie dolls) but i bet you could google it

Who was the American Girl Doll of the Year in 2012?

You'll know by looking on "Doll Diaries" that her name is McKenna, and she is a gymnast. She is rumored to have brown hair and hazel eyes.
I've heard it's going to be a girl named Casey Jones. I don't know what her personality is, but she will probably be one of those save the environment girls like Lanie and Kanani. All I know about her looks is that she is supposed to have brown eyes. Hope this answer is what you're looking for!

from, Jenn.

No, her name is, Velma and she is a gymnastic girl. Plus they're gonna mke a movie of her.

No, her name is, McKenna Brooks. But your right she is a gymnast and they r going to make a movie of her.
Well, we probably might never know for sure which doll will be next. But it is fun to find out, or even vote! If you are a member of youtube, check there. they will show who they vote for, and maybe that may give you some ideas of the next AG doll of the year!
Yodisha AMnua shes a musmelem
No one knows except for the American Girl Company. You will just have to wait until very late 2011 or until 2012 to find out, sorry. But, i can assure you that the American Girl will be beautiful, they always are, good luck with you search, sorry i couldn't really help you.
her name is McKenna and she is a gymnast

Ten-year-old McKenna is ready to start fourth grade, but when she begins to fall behind in school, McKenna's teacher suggests that she should get help from a tutor and encouragement from Josie, a confident girl in a wheelchair, McKenna manages to regain confident in her ability.

mckenna brooks, girl of the year 2012, who will be coming out on Jan. 1st
Rumors state that American Girl is in the works of an Gymnastics Movie, Rumors say that she will be named "mekenna" which is not likely a a cover name. She has blue eyes also.
We don't even know if Mattel (american girl) knows yet so the answer to your question is nobody knows and they have not yet released information on that subject.

It's McKenna Brooks! Near the end of the year go on to see the GOTY 2013.
no one knows except the company
No one knows what the next American Girl will be. Right now, 2012, is McKenna, a girl who loves to do gymnastics.
I dont know who it is but you can check other posts and websites or wait until jan. 1 2012, her name is Velma.

No, her name is McKenna Brooks. The name Velma was just rumors
Probably not! I think her first name will begin with an S though if that helps. :)
McKenna, and she already came out. You can buy her now for $105.
Her name is MeKenna. She is a gymnast and I believe she is Irish. She looks somewhat like doll #G1970 or #G1966
American Girl has not released the 2012 American Girl of The Year Yet. In January they will, as that is when they always release the GOTY.
For 2012, McKenna is the new American Girl for the year.
