American Girl Brings Back Original Six Characters

American Girl Brings Back Original Six Characters

The OG American Girl dolls are back for the 35th anniversary reunion!


In celebration of 35 years of American Girl, the brand is bringing back its original historical characters—Samantha Parkington, Kirsten Larson, Molly McIntire, Felicity Merriman, Addy Walker, and Josefina Montoya. These characters will now have the opportunity to inspire a new generation of young girls and boys.

Each of the characters will come in its own special 35th Anniversary Collection, with an 18-inch doll dressed in her original outfit, with authentic accessories, and the character's first paperback book in the series with a vintage cover. It will also come packaged in a retro-inspired American Girl doll box, designed for collectors. You can purchase the dolls on the American Girl website, for $150 each.

“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. “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. We can’t wait to inspire and empower this next generation with even more relevant products, immersive experiences, and timeless stories.”



Here are other fun ways American Girl fans can celebrate the brand's 35th birthday:
