American Girl’s mission is to celebrate girls. We embrace who they are today and look forward to who they will become tomorrow.
Since the first catalogue debuted in 1986, American Girl has provided inspiring products for each stage of a young girl’s development—from her preschool days of baby dolls and fantasy play through her tween years of self-expression and individuality. Through an array of premium-quality books, dolls, clothes, toys, and accessories, American Girl has earned the loyalty of millions of girls and the praise and trust of parents and educators.
American Girl first introduced a line of historical characters, which currently includes Kaya®, Josefina®, Addy®, Rebecca®, Kit®, Molly®, Julie®, Cécile™, and Marie-Grace™, that come to life through extraordinary books, 18-inch dolls, and accessories. These nine-year-old fictional heroines live during important times in America’s past, providing “girl-sized” views of significant events that helped shape our country, and they bring history alive for millions of children.
