As a kid, I never collected American Girl dolls. For some reason, I just didn’t know about them! But, now that I have my own daughter who is in love with them, I am currently living vicariously through her. I just love them!
I am super excited to announce to you the 2019 Girl of the Year™, Blaire Wilson™!
Welcome the American Girl 2019 Girl of the Year, Blaire Wilson
I love how every girl can find an American Girl doll they can relate with. Blaire Wilson is no different:
A natural people person, Blaire excels at gathering people around the dinner table but needs help finding balance between the digital world and the real world—like many people today. Through Blaire, girls will learn the importance of staying connected to the people they care about and that this means more than clicking and swiping—it means truly being there.
“Building and maintaining supportive relationships with family and friends is central to Blaire’s story—a message we think is important to champion among girls today. In an age where families are often striving for quality time together, we hope Blaire inspires everyone to make a New Year’s resolution to connect more regularly with the important people in their lives and make their time together this year really count.”
Now that my daughter is reading fluently, she is really enjoying reading the books that brings her favorite American Girl dolls to life. I feel like out of all of the American Girl dolls my daughter has, Blaire Wilson is someone we really can relate to.
Blaire loves to cook and decorate on her family’s farm and bed-and-breakfast. Her story unfolds with her overextending herself and dealing with self-consciousness. Instead of working through her struggles, Blaire hides behind her electronic devices. I hope you will read the book for yourself to find out how her family and friends help Blaire to learn the value of being fully present at every occasion.
Besides the beautiful 18″ doll, accessories and products from Blaire’s life on the farm are available. Including, including a sweet lamb and piglet, festive party decor, and Blaire’s Family Farm Restaurant, with everything needed to play out a show stopping farm-to-table celebration.
