Last year, when asked what she wanted for Christmas, my daughter was solid that McKenna, the 2012 Girl of the Year from American Girl was her one positive want. She consistently informed us that “You can only get her until the end of the year!”
Well, Grammy came through and she opened McKenna to squeals and total delight. In preparation for this holiday, American Girl sent us a Saige doll. Like McKenna, she’s the Doll of the Year. When she arrived, I managed to capture my daugther’s response. Doesn’t that make you smile?
Saige is a beautiful doll who, accordingly to my daughter, loves art. “She’s just like me, mom! She loves art, too!” Whether your holiday shopping is done or not, if Saige is the perfect doll for your child, don’t hesitate. Order her before time runs out. Here’s what my daughters have to say about that:
As many times as Miss K asked for an American Girl doll, I never really understood how serious she was until last year. My lack of knowledge about how the Girl of the Year gets retired could have had serious consequences. She truly wanted nothing but McKenna. American Girl dolls just make her SO happy!
Seriously… look at that smile!
As you heard in the video, you can still find other American Girl options without purchasing a doll. They offer books, DVDs, clothing, a magazine, accessories, crafts and other items in a variety of price points to fit your budget.
