Caroline

Hey All!!

Just a reminder that there is only a few more days to sign up for the giveaway! If you haven't signed up yet, make sure you do!

Anyway, about a week ago, I found a picture of the brand new American Girl doll! Her name is Caroline Abbott. We have known about her name for a few months, but we had no idea what she looked like...until now.

Here are some pictures for the new girl from 1812!






(Thanks Hannah and Emma for sharing these pictures!)






We all had many ideas about what she looked like. Since the last name Abbot is a Scottish last name, I think most of us amused that she would have red hair. Well, we were wrong. I do like the way she looks though. I was hoping for a doll without curly hair, because they are no fun to style. (My Lanie's hair is a mess because I tried to brush it)

She looks a little...barbie-ish. The whole blond hair and blue eyes. Which I mean is fine, but couldn't American Girl come up with something more original? She kinda looks like a Lanie and Elizabeth put together.

I am not sure if I will ever get her. I already got 2 dolls this year I wasn't expecting on getting. And if I did get another doll, it would probably be McKenna, because I have all the other GOTY since 2009. Also, before I do make any decision, I want to see her whole collection. That might help me make up my mind.

I am looking forward to reading her books though. The War of 1812 played a huge part in the town that I live. Part of the war was actually fought right here. So, reading the books might give me a gimps on what might have happened back then.

But, we are going to have to wait until September to see her whole story. Until then, we will just have to imagine what it's like.

Bye!
