Every New Year’s Eve we look forward to the grand announcement and reveal of the next American Girl Doll of the Year. We take turns envisioning who she will be. Will she be an artist? A Veterinarian? A Broadway Star? Will she be a brunette? Red Head? Have glasses or no? We enjoy this little game and were wowed when we saw the announcement of the 2019 American Girl of the Year, Blaire Wilson.
All of my children’s names begin with “B” so the addition of Blaire really added to their level of excitement. Blaire Wilson is my five year old’s First authentic American Girl Doll and she is smitten.
Blaire Wilson is smart, light-hearted and trying to set out to be mindful. Not only is this young inspiring chef help run her family’s Bed and Breakfast in upstate New York (another familiarity for my daughter), she is tech savvy and is ever looking for balance. Blaire is just like most children today, she struggles between her real life and her life online. Her book series is relatable-exploring the difficulties of finding balance between the real and digital world and carving your own path to follow your big dreams. Blaire Wilson has green eyes, gorgeous red, long hair that is fun to style and her whimsical Bee dress is a nod to her role on her family’s farm.
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.
