“For 35 years, American Girl has created powerful stories with smart, courageous heroines that have helped shape an entire generation of women,” said Jamie Cygielman, General Manager of American Girl in a press release. “As we celebrate this major milestone, we’re thrilled to recognize the very first generation of American girls who grew up with these beloved, original characters and made them the phenomenon they are today.”
“Knowing many of these women are now moms themselves, we look forward to creating special, multi-generational experiences for families via their shared love of the brand,” Cygielman said.
Each doll will retail for $150 and will be dressed in their signature original outfits. Best of all, the 18-inch dolls will come packaged along with the first paperback book in the character’s series.
“We can’t wait to inspire and empower this next generation with even more relevant products, immersive experiences and timeless stories,” Cygielman added.
